Between Cannes and St. Raphael, there is a land of red rocks, called massif Esterel. The combination of the red mountains and the blue sea makes this part of the Cote d’Azur a magical place.

The Esterel Massif is a Mediterranean coastal mountain range in south-eastern France.

The soil and rocks of the range are of volcanic origin, composed mainly of pophyry, which gives the hills a red color. The terrain is rugged, with deep ravines and oak forests. The highest point of the massif is Mont Vinaigre (618 metres).
