The prettiest part of Mandelieu-La Napoule is the secluded waterside community La Napoule-Plage on the sandy beaches of the Golfe de la Napoule. In 1919, the once-obscure fishing village was a paradise for the eccentric sculptor Henry Clews, son of a New York banker, and his wife, Marie, an architect. Clews fled America's "charlatans," whom he believed had profited from World War I. His house is now a museum. One of the biggest draws of Mandelieu-La Napoule is the two Michelin-starred Oasis restaurant, where Stéphane Raimbault and his brothers Antoine and François have added an informal bistro to their mini-empire of gastronomic excellence.
