Monuments:

The fortified medieval village of Mougins, located 10 minutes drive inland from Cannes overlooking the Grasse valley is where Picasso chose to spend his last years. A haven for gastronomy, the village boasts a great selection of restaurants including Roger Verge's Le Moulin de Mougins. If you are dining there find time to visit the Muse de Photographic located at the entrance to the old village. For those interested in automobiles, classic Bugattis are amongst exhibits at the nearby Automobile Museum.

In the 16th century, the nearby town of Grasse became the perfume capital of the world. A number of perfume houses can be visited as well as the International Museum of Perfume. Stop by the 12th century Cathedral of Notre Dame du Puy in the old town which houses pictures by Rubens. If you have the time there is also a Marine and a History of Art Museum.
