Cabris coat of arms

Cabris is a charming village in the French Riviera with fewer than 1500 ‘Cabriencs’ living here year round. The village name comes from the Latin – “capra” – goat.

The coat of arms features three symbols: the goat, a key to represent the fortress walls of the old castle, and three chevrons, the emblem of the last owner (lord) of the village, the family Clapiers-Cabris. Evidenced by mounds of stones discovered in the area, the first human settlements appeared here in the Cretaceous period. The first recorded mention of the village dates back to 1221.

Traditionally, the population was engaged in cultivation of olives and animal breeding (cattle, sheep, and goats); these activities continue to a lesser degree today.


Cabris is a typical small French village where life is friendly, quiet and delicious. If you are a family whose desire is to pack a lot into a couple of weeks of vacation, you can enjoy the village and the area without the city hustle-bustle. Take a walk or ride a bike through the picturesque surroundings, taste local food and enjoy village cultural life, or lie on a nearby beach – Cabris is an excellent choice.
You can wander the picturesque narrow streets, take in its history and views, visit the remains of the medieval castle with its own “black widow” story, enjoy many hiking trails, and much more.
A car is a must here. The village itself seems to be in the middle of nowhere, but everything you might desire is within a 30-40 minutes trip – the sea, sandy and pebbly beaches, the beautiful Saint-Cassien lake, vineyards, two nearby ski areas, several golf courses, other picturesque villages, plus Grasse, Cannes, Antibes, Nice, and shopping centers.
Cabris is a great place to wake up on a sunny morning for breakfast, take off for a day trip, come back in the evening for a lovely dinner, and fall asleep in some of the world’s best silence.
