Where to Stay

Cannes enjoys a Mediterranean climate and has 12 hours of sunshine per day during the summer months. Cannes beaches are a big draw for tourists – Coco Chanel developed her hugely influential suntan on the beaches of Cannes - and you will find many seafront villas fit for the rich and famous. As Cannes is a city of festivals and conferences, it has become a centre for high-class restaurants and accommodation. Popular neighbourhoods include Pointe Croisette, where the Croisette Boulevard is located. For those looking for peace and quiet, the districts of Cannes la Bocca and La Croix des Gardes to the west of the centre are ideal. To the north of the waterfront, the hilly area of Petty Juis is within walking distance of the action.

Things to Do

France is famous for its amazing cuisine and you will find stunning examples of local cheeses, fresh vegetables and pasta at the local market, often just around the corner from your villa. If you like to dine out, there are many truly exquisite restaurants around Cannes, serving seasonal cuisine such as glazed veal, vegetable medley, sea bream, pigeon pie and beef stew. Alternatively, you can live it up true Cannes style and have canapes delivered to the poolside of your villa with one of the famous French catering services. Nightlife in Cannes is vibrant, if a little on the expensive side, and you will find many waterfront bars offering amazing views out to sea.

Eating and Drinking

Cannes is a beautiful place to visit. The Old Town is particularly lovely and well worth spending some time in, whether you’re staying close by or not. Nineteenth century Cannes can still be seen in the grand villas that are a feature of the town. The city has always been a favourite destination for the rich and the wealthy and a walk along the famous La Croisette waterfront boulevard, which is lined with expensive modern apartments and high-class restaurants, will certainly give you a feeling for the high life. Cannes has several beautiful public beaches - the best of which are Plages Du Midi and de la Boca. Cannes is a famous shopping destination and you’ll find an impressive array of shops in the city. It’s not all about high end shopping however, there are also fantastic food markets in the town including the one at Marche Forville which is known to have great food stalls.

Getting Around

Taxis are not recommended as a ride into Cannes costs €80 – be warned! If you’re staying in an apartment in the city centre, getting around Cannes is pretty straightforward.
