  • Superb uptime. Peynet lovers are timeless and this visit made me immensely happy. Romanticism and tenderness, love and humour. The museum is not very big but it is a treat with these cute bubbles, the delicate attentions of lovers, the symbolic doves and cupids. We left with several reproductions, (the horoscopes) that were all the rage on our return. NB the bride and groom of Antibes, receive a marriage certificate having a Roro of Peynet.
