Haut de Cagnes is a village in Alpes Maritimes. It amounts to the medieval origin of the Cagnes settlement and nestles around an imposing medieval castle once owned by the Grimaldi dynasty (the Royal family of Monaco). The picture perfect village has been maintained successfully over the years and offers an alternative to the concrete of the modern French Riviera.
