The artists of Agay

[su_divider top="no" divider_color="#1b94b8" size="2"]

The magnificent setting of the Agay harbour has inspired many artists: the writers, Guy de Maupassant, Maurice Donnay, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, or the painters Guillaumin and Louis Valtat are some of them.

[su_expand more_text="Read more" less_text="Reduce" text_color="#000000" link_color="#2b9cff" link_align="center"]The Agay harbour forms a pretty well sheltered basin, closed on one side by red and straight rocks, dominated by the semaphore at the top of the mountain, and that continues, towards the open sea, the Isle of Gold, named after its color; on the other, by a line of low rocks, and a small point at the surface of the water with a lighthouse to indicate the entrance.

In the background, an inn that receives the captains of refugee ships there in bad weather and fishermen in summer, a station where only two trains stop every day and no one goes down, and a pretty river that flows into the Esterel to the valley called Malinfermet, and which is full of oleanders like an African ravine.

No road leads from the interior to this delicious bay. Only a path leads to Saint-Raphaël, passing through the porphyry quarries of the Dramont; but no car could follow it. So we're in the middle of the mountains.[/su_expand]
