Golfe-Juan Town Guide

Golfe-Juan

Situated between Cap d'Antibes to the East and the Cap de la Croisette on the west of the outskirts of Cannes and an extension of Juan-les-Pins, Golfe-Juan is a small seaside resort that offers superb views of the Lérins Islands and of Cap d'Antibes.  It was on the beach of Golfe-Juan on March 1st 1815  that Napoleon I landed upon his return from the island of Elba and gave the order to march first towards Cannes and Grasse, then marching further north. The route taken by Napoleon I as far as Laffrey, a small village to the north of Grenoble, is now known as the "Route Napoleon".
