Above the Baie des AngesBetween Antibes and Nice, the Baie des Anges laps at twentieth-century resorts with two fine examples of concrete corpulence: the giant petrified sails with viciously pointed corners of the Villeneuve-Loubet-Plage marina, and an apartment complex, 1km long and sixteen storeys high, barricading the stony beach.

The old towns and softer visual stimulation lie inland. Cagnes is another artists' town associated in particular with Renoir as is St-Paul-de-Vence, which houses the wonderful modern art collection of the Fondation Maeght. Vence has a small chapel decorated by Matisse, and is a relaxing place to stay, if quiet in the evenings.
