Overview

Golfe-Juan belongs to the commune of Vallauris in the Grasse arrondissement of the Alpes-Maritimes department, which belongs in turn to the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of France. The area is served by the Golfe Juan-Vallauris railway station.

On March 1, 1815, Napoléon Bonaparte landed at Golfe-Juan with 600 men, having escaped exile on the island of Elba. His return to Paris, commemorated by the Route Napoléon, and the campaign that led to his ultimate defeat at the Battle of Waterloo are known as the "Hundred Days".

“Golfe Juan” is also the name of a pointillist painting done by Paul Signac (1863-1935), a French neo-impressionist, in 1896.
