Private Tour
The Wine from the Abbey Boat from Cannes
from your accommodation


Cannes is of course best known for its Film Festival and the glamorous Croisette with its grand hotels, its harbours and yachts, and its designer shops and its old town. However, there is more than meets the eye….

One of the least well known vineyards in Provence is run by the Monks from the Abbey of Lérins – one of the two small islands in the bay of Cannes. The wines are as heavenly as the environment. Before we cross by boat we’ll take a stroll through the old market in Le Suquet, with its stalls full of local crafts, tasty fresh produce, and herbs and spices.

This will be a day full of surprises and a feast for the eyes…..

Highlights :

+This is a chance to lose yourself in mysterious world of the Abbey of Lérins
+Genuine tastes and flavours of the South of France in the old market
+A boat trip out to the island, and back!
+The scenery of the bay and the islands provides great photo opportunities
+A wine tasting in the colours of Provence – Red, White and Rosé, plus a few surprises
+Tips on wine tasting and on how to best pair food and wine, throughout the day
