The Suquet district
Being situated on a hill to the west of the bay of Cannes, the Suquet district which si sometimes called "Mount Chevalier" is known to be the oldest village in Cannes. The inhabitants had the brilliant idea of building their dwellings on the slopes of a great rock overlooking the sea.
Contrary to the Croisette, which shows glittery and "strassed" landscapes, the Suquet district has preferred to adopt a more modest pace with its old and astute houses and alleys. This small "vintage" side of the village makes the latter authentic and picturesque.
