Nature and well-being

Mandelieu-la Napoule, nature in the heart of the city, crossed by the navigable river Siagne. Overlooked by the Massif de l'Estérel, the Massif du Tanneron and the Mont San Peyre which are reflected in the Gulf of La Napoule.

Want to discover nature in the heart of the city?

Mont San Peyre overlooks the district of La Napoule and offers a superb walk for nature lovers.
A pedestrian path crosses the typical vegetation of the local maquis, to reach the summit with the remains of the ancient fortress, the orientation table, the marked path for initiation to running and above all the breathtaking panoramic view.
The banks of the Siagne, a real place of tranquillity, are a public space stretching from the town centre to the coast. Three kilometres long, they are regularly used by walkers, joggers and families, who cohabit with the fauna and flora in a haven of nature and peace. There are facilities for children and sports enthusiasts. The vegetation is dense with more than 2000 trees and shrubs of about fifty different species.
The customs path will take you from the port of La Napoule to the port of La Rague. It is easily accessible for nature lovers and walkers. The pathway allows you to discover the arcades of the castle, the famous "rocher des pendus" and the surrounding cliffs. A magnificent view of the red rocks of the Estérel and the Lérins islands accompanies you along this picturesque escapade.
