My 2 glimpse adventure

Max, who lived in Cannes for more than six years is originally from The Netherlands too and the perfect candidate to show me the real Cannes. You know I’m a sunrise chaser and I wanted to know if there was a perfect place for that away from the busy Cannes. In the light of dawn, we drove off on his motor to see the best sunset at the height of the ‘Rochers du Coke’ rocks.

After this, we decided to drive along the coast to Cannes to see more of glamorous Harbourside. Make sure to drive a scooter or motor because this gives you so much freedom. The next day, we drove up to see Cannes from above. If you go all the way up to Belvédère de Roquebillière and you’ll have an amazing view over the city and the harbor. Ofcourse, I needed some inside tips about the restaurants in Cannes and I really wanted to see the real Cannes. Le Suquet is the place to be for that since it is the old quarter and packed with lovely small restaurants and boutiques that are open all night. For the restaurant we went to Le Maschou. Le Maschou is located in the heart of Le Suquet and the atmosphere is amazing. A former fishermen’s cave where anchovies were once salted and somehow they managed to preserve this picturesque atmosphere and combine this with amazing food fire grilled meat and fish. Combine this with great wine from the cellar and great new company and you have the perfect evening.
