5 things to know about the site:
1. The Last Green Sector Of CANNES
On 60 acres of wooded hills, 60 ha are now owned by the Conservatoire du Littoral, on which new construction is completely forbidden, as well as the prohibition of making a fire, smoking, or practicing a motorized or mountain bike. The remaining 20 hectares should also be protected from urban planning by the Local Planning Plan (Plu) under development
2. The Mimosa CRADLE
Even before the tradition of the mimosa was cultivated in Tanneron, it was on this hill that the first yellow flowers of the Cannes basin appeared, while the Croix des Gardes was called the "neighborhood of the English". Following the dismissal of Cannes by Lord Brougham in 1835, many of his compatriots came to settle in sumptuous mansions, importing the mimosa as an ornamental plant, which has the faculty of spreading itself easily. Today, the Conservatoire is even obliged to control the expansion of wild mimosa, in order to allow the development of the other Mediterranean species, but a mimosa crop was reintroduced in 2012, which gave a first harvest in 2016.
3. A Purely Cannois Perfume From The Mimosa Of The Croix Des GARDES
In agreement with "the nose" Sébastien Martin and harvesting mimosa, a Cannes perfume, Fleur de Festival, was created in May last from the strands of wild mimosas at the Croix des Gardes. Offered to the jury of the 70th Cannes Film Festival and to the model Naomi Campbell for her birthday, Fleur de Festival is being marketed at the price of 220 euros for 100 ml.
4. The Château De La Croix Des Gardes Is For SALE
Sitting atop the hillside, the mythical castle of Croix des Gardes is currently on the market.
5. The Croix Des Gardes NAME
According to legend, the hill takes its name from the assassination of two guards during the 17th century, after which a Cross was built at 213 meters above sea level. In 1990, the Cross became a work of the artist Jean-Yves Le Chevallier.
