Phare de la Garoupe (Garoupe Lighthouse) Review

You can sample a little of what draws famous people to this part of the world by walking up the Chemin de Calvaire from the Plage de la Salis in Antibes—about 1 kilometer (½ mile)—and taking in the extraordinary views from the hill surmounted by the old lighthouse, the Phare de la Garoupe. Next to the lighthouse, the 16th-century double chapel of Notre-Dame-de-la-Garoupe contains ex-votos and statues of the Virgin, all in memory and for the protection of sailors. Please note that should renovations begin in January 2014 as planned, the chapel will be closed until mid-2015.

    Stunning at sunset. You can also drive up there.
