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).

The small coastal town of Antheor is where the Esterel mountains enter the sea.
