  • Small but beautiful little museum dedicated to Renoir. Wonderful to see his actual studio and chair where he worked. The gardens are well kept and would be a lovely place to spend an afternoon with family.
  • Situated in a quite residential area, Renoir's residence is well proportioned and impressive. Surrounded by mature olive and citrus groves, it's elevation commands great views down to the Mediterranean.
