An authentic village where the stalls of numerous craftsmen line Rue Saint Sauveur.

 Discover Le Cannet


Over centuries, the name of Biot was associated with pottery (earthware). Since 1956, under the impetus of Eloi Monod, who relaunched the ancestral tradition of blown glass, the village has become famous for its glassworks and renowned master glassmakers.

 Discover Biot


The pottery tradition of Vallauris goes back to the beginning of our era, and has seen profound change over the course of time. However, the artisan activity of the town remains focused on this decorative art. Picasso, Jean Marais and many others were passionate about ceramics.
