The wonderfully picturesque village of Auribeau-sur-Siagne is perched high on a ridge above the coast, just 13 km from Cannes on the Cote d’Azur – Riviera. Many miles from the traditional tourist track, a holiday rental property in Auribeau-sur-Siagne is a perfect haven of peace, remaining calm even during the height of summer, yet easily within reach of both the world famous beaches of the French Riviera and the dramatic, rocky landscapes of the Alpine foothills.
The village is a fantastically picturesque place to be. The streets are adorned with climbing flowers, which provide Auribeau-sur-Siagne with colour, fragrance and a wonderfully natural atmosphere. The village has some very steep streets, but you can walk down all the way to the river, as long as long as you are prepared for the steep walk back to your villa! The 18th century church is a great place to start your exploration of Auribeau-sur-Siagne, from its position high atop the ridge. The views from the church are nothing short of spectacular, and allow you to look out across the Plateau of Valbonne and over the Peygros Forest as far as the purple outline of the Tanneron Mountains.
There are some excellent hiking routes to explore from an Auribeau-sur-Siagne villa, with a good range of local walking routes as well as two national hiking trails. The GR51 passes through the village, leading walkers along the Balcons de la Cote d’Azur to Cannes or Grasse. The Foret de Peygros holds many fantastic trails, which are especially good during the summer as the thick cork oak and mimosa trees provide plenty of shade, as well as providing hunting and nesting grounds for Golden Eagles which can regularly be seen soaring overhead.
The Gorges de la Siagne, at the mouth of which Auribeau-sur-Siagne lies, are a fantastic asset for walkers, painters, cyclists and climbers. Painters and nature lovers flock from many miles to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Gorges de la Siagne.
The famous city of Cannes is just a short drive from Auribeau-sur-Siagne accommodation. The city has risen to international fame due to the International Film Festival, but there is an enormous amount to discover throughout the year. The high class restaurants, galleries and museums are overshadowed only by the beautiful beaches, but there is sure to be something to appeal to every visitor.
Walking holidays to Auribeau-sur-Siagne apartments and villas are excellent throughout the year. Even in the coldest month, (January), temperatures are unlikely to dip below 12˚C during daylight hours, whilst during August, daily peaks routinely reach the mid 30’s (˚C).
A holiday rental villa in Auribeau-sur-Siagne is just 10km from Nice International Airport (NCE), which is extremely well connected to airports within the UK.
