Road bicycle The artists' route

Departing from the municipal sports hall in La Colle sur Loup.

Starting from La Colle sur Loup and passing through the perched village of Saint-Paul de Vence, this loop has a resolutely artistic and cultural flavour. After a brief climb taking you through Vence, the road continues to Saint Jeannet via the “Balcons d’Azur” green cycling path, offering breath-taking views of the famous "Baous".

Places of interest: La Colle-sur-Loup and the secrets of a Provençal village; the Fondation Maeght, art in the wilderness; the Matisse chapel, a monument of sacred art; Saint Jeannet at the foot of the "Baous"; Cagnes-sur-Mer, home to Renoir.
