What to do in Mandelieu?
Mandelieu-La Napoule is a seaside town, on a human scale, in the heart of an exceptional territory between the Mediterranean, Estérel and the Tanneron Forest, irrigated by multiple canals and bordered by the bucolic banks of the Siagne. She is considered a garden city, and sports and boating are honored there because of its history, since it was the aristocracy who imported elegant sports there from the end of the 19th century.
In terms of heritage, the emblem of Mandelieu is the Château de La Napoule. Today, property of the Henry Clews Foundation, it literally has its feet in the water, at the foot of Port La Napoule, and forms the backdrop of the La Napoule Boat Show. On the Port de la Rague side, you can see the Agecroft Castle better known as the “Château des Mineurs”. It is also built of ocher stones taken from the Estérel.
The mythical Old Course and Barbossi Riviera Golf, rather arty, are two signatures of the golfing world. Today they represent the excellence and modernity of this elegant sport practiced for 130 years in France, in Mandelieu-La Napoule!
Finally, the mandolocian gastronomy will also delight epicureans in search of unique flavors. The La Napoule district and the Ports of Mandelieu offer warm and gourmet addresses for sunny brunches or romantic evenings with a breathtaking view of the sea or in an authentic bistro-style setting!
