Courmettes: This was one of the first "picnic spots with a view" we discovered on arrival in the area in 2007 and it's become a firm favourite. After a 20-30 minute walk from the Domaine des Courmettes - a grand old house used for seminars, events, nature groups etc - through meadows and ancient green oak forest you come to a lookout point with a million dollar view. There's a small (locked) hut from where the fire service survey the area in summer watching for forest fires. It really does have the most amazing view of the coast. In the photo above you can see the Cap d'Antibes half way between the child and the right edge of the picture. To get there coming from Grasse, pass through the hamlet of Pont du Loup heading towards Tourettes sur Loup and after 3 kms turn left at the sign "Courmettes". Coming from Tourettes follow direction Pont du Loup, after 5 kms turn right at the sign "Courmettes" shortly after the bus stop "St Antoine". The road is not tarred all the way and is narrow, windy and steep for 4 kms. Not for the nervous driver!
