La Roquette Sur Siagne, place et église
La Roquette sur Siagne is a pleasant town located on the western edge of the Alpes Maritimes, between the sea and the mountains, 10 km from Cannes and only 4 km from Mougins.

It is in a peaceful location on the heights that overlook the sea. La Roquette sur Siagne offers a vast panorama from Théoule sur Mer as far as the bay of Cannes.

An ideal compromise for the holidays: La Roquette is close to both a large town and the sea (10 km), where you can quickly get to the beaches, do some shopping in town and take a stroll on the Croisette.

If on the contrary you prefer the countryside and some peace and quiet, here you can relax far from the noise of the town and the crowds on the coast.



La Roquette Sur Siagne, housesHere you will find a veritable haven of greenery, and a village that has cleverly blended the original village houses with the more recent constructions thanks to the numerous gardens, green areas and lovely flower beds.

The village has been officially rewarded for these efforts to harmonise and beautify by winning 1st prize in the departmental towns and villages flower competition in the category of towns with 5,000 to 30,000 inhabitants ... quite an achievement!

You in turn will no doubt succumb to the charm when stroll along the streets of the village. You will discover a village with plenty of character.

You cannot miss its large main square shaded with plane trees where the village old-timers get together for a peaceful chat on the benches.

On this same square, the local festivities are organised, bringing the locals together around the communal bread oven.

If by chance you come by here on one of those festive days, you will get a taste of real conviviality, and you will no doubt see Claude with the great oven peel taking pizzas and delicious soccas out of the oven.


His friends Gaetan and Kiki will offer it to you with pleasure with the local accent as a bonus, plus a small glass of cool rosé... and at that point, you will really be part of the festivitiese.
