Exit the A8 toll way at junction 42 while following the sign CANNES-CENTRE, MOUANS-SARTOUX, MOUGINS, LE CANNET, GRASSE. Take the N85 (also known as LA PENETRANTE) direction GRASSE. Leave the N85 at the MOUANS-SARTOUX exit. When on the exit roundabout, turn right on the first street (ROUTE DE LA ROQUETTE), direction MOUANS-SARTOUX. Carry on this street. At the end of the street there is a roundabout and a MAC DONALD on your right. Turn left (N2085/AVENUE DE CANNES). Carry on this street, go past a tiny roundabout (located right after the LA STRADA movie theatre), then turn right at the next traffic lights (Avenue MARCEL JOUMET). Carry on until you cross a railway. Turn left immediately after the railway and take the D404, direction PLASCASSIER and VALBONNE. Just after the second curve (you are leaving MOUANS-SARTOUX and going past the city limits sign), there is a small concrete lane separator in the middle of the road. Turn left there, on CHEMIN DU PLAN. After 1.5 km, the name of the street changes to CHEMIN DU COLLET DE ST MARC. Carry on until you reach number 77 on your right (just after a hangar/shed on the left of the road). Take the lane and drive up all the way (200 meters). Our house is an old stone house at the end of the lane, on the left side.
