Cagnes-sur-Mer

Cagnes-sur-Mer is a picturesque French Riviera town known for its forests, pebble beaches, and seaside charm in the Alpes-Maritimes department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. It is also home to the only horse hippodrome in the French Riviera, which draws people from all over for its horse races.GeographyIt is the largest extension to the city of Nice and lies to the west-southwest of it, about 15km from the center.HistoryIt was the retreat and final address of the painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, who moved there in 1907 in an attempt to improve his arthritis, and remained until his death in 1919. In the late 1920s, Cagnes-sur-Mer became a residence for many American renowned literary and art figures, such as Kay Boyle, George Antheil and Harry and Caresse Crosby. Author Georges Simenon (1903–1989), creator of the fictional detective Commissaire Jules Maigret, lived at 98, montée de la Bourgade in the 1950s with his third wife and their three children; his initial “S” may still be seen in the wrought iron on the stairs. Parisian artist, poet, and philosopher Georges Charaire had a home In Cagnes for many years. Creating his lithographs in the former studio of Paul Gaugin, and also as a co-founder of the Theatre du Tertre in Montmartre, he had a great influence on French art and thought in the 20th century. He helped his friend Eugène Ionesco with his first plays at the Theatre du Tertre. Charaire kept his second home in Cagnes sur Mer until his death in 2001.nt
