Château Grimaldi at Cagnes-sur-Mer is a must see historical landmark. I drove then parked at ‘Parking Le Planastel’ (Rue du Planastel, 06800 Cagnes-sur-Mer); the fees are very reasonable. From the parking location it is a very easy walk into the château. By visiting in December,...More

Bought a combined ticket for the Chateau Grimaldi in Cagnes-sur-Mer old town (get the free shuttle if you don’t want to climb up the steep hill) and Renoir’s house (cost €8). Well worth visiting both places. Great views from the top of Chateau Grimaldi and...More

We easily spent an hour here. The terrace Anne is worth the admission and the climb. The art in contemporary, and very modern. There is an interesting collection of portraits of Suzy Solidor. The family history of the Grimaldi's is also on display.

Too much emphasis on Art and Suzy Solidor. The few historical exhibits were fascinating and these should be developed and extended to encapsulate the wider local history and the influence of the Grimaldis .

We stayed in the medieval part of Cagnes for just over a week and are glad we made the effort to visit this interesting castle. Different things inside will appeal to different people and this reviewer wished that there had been more information available in...More

While the Chateau does have an interesting exhibition of artwork from days gone by, featuring such items as some works of Suzy Solidor, a past celebrity, however missing were images of the original building, to compare with the new however sparse, which leaves much space...More

It is not just to see how the Grimaldis live. It is also a very nice collection of art and has a great atmosphere.
