Holidays in Cannes
The area and getting around
A small town with a big city atmosphere
Cannes is located on the French Riviera in South France. It is a town of 80,000 people that explodes in number in summer and especially during its famous Film Festival. The heart of the city is the Pointe Croisette. Flanking the city’s main beach, it is home to many of the town’s chic restaurants, designer shops and glittering nightclubs, casinos, theatres and concert halls.
Plunge into centuries of history in the Old Town
To the west of the port is the Old Town. Beautifully located on a hill, it affords outstanding views of Cannes. The cobble-stoned streets are lined with old-world villas from the 1600s and myriad boutique cafes and restaurants. The city’s most historic attractions are found here, such as the Notre-Dame Gothic church, which dates back to the 1300s.
Travellers and activities
Cannes for shopaholics
Cannes is not only the number one luxury shopping destination in France but one of the best places in the world for shopaholics with a bottomless credit card. On La Croisette, you can walk for an hour and pass nothing but luxury – eye-wateringly expensive boutiques, with all the high-end brand names represented, including Dior, Chanel, Gucci and Bulgari. Your credit card isn’t made of gold? Then head to Rue d'Antibes and Rue Meynadier, where you will find a mixture of upmarket high street shops, trendy fashion brands, perfumeries and boutiques with prices you can afford! Travellers with holiday lettings in Nice take the hour-long trip to Cannes to indulge in the best shopping experience.
Cannes for museum aficionados
Cannes is best known for its sandy beaches and international festivals, but the city’s cultural heritage is no less impressive. Get a private holiday rental in Cannes and spend the day exploring the area's history. The chic and intimate Centre d’Art La Malmaison, housed in the former Grand Hotel, hosts temporary exhibitions from world-famous artists such as Picasso and Chagall. The Musée de la Castre, located within a medieval castle high above the city, provides the most spectacular vistas in all of Cannes. It is home to exhibits that include medieval artefacts, Asian instruments and 19th-century paintings. At Villa Domergue, you can see the works of Jean-Gabriel Domergue, a prominent 20th-century French painter known primarily for his impressive portraits of Parisian women. Ensure you make the hour-long trip from your villa in Nice to marvel at the Musuems in Cannes.
During the International Film Festival, 200,000 actors, directors, and producers flock to Cannes. Is there anywhere better in the world to go celebrity spotting?!
Top 5 travel tips in Cannes
1. People watch at La Croisette
La Croisette is a great starting point for your visit to Cannes. This 2-km-long boulevard is a fabulous people-watching spot, especially during Cannes Film Festival, packed from early morning until late at night. Take a seat at any of the many cafes and bars that line the street and enjoy the sights! If you have a holiday rental in Cannes, you can take early morning or late evening strolls through the streets. La Croisette Street runs the length of the seafront, dotted with designer boutiques, palm trees and casinos. You can pay for a sun lounger to rest before continuing with your stroll.
2. Admire the fancy yachts at Le Vieux Port
The Old Port of Cannes is a fascinating mix of traditional charm and immense wealth and is the best place to watch the world’s most expensive yachts sail into town. Come at sunrise or sunset, when the magical colours of the portside buildings seem to come alive. If you want a glimpse of the interior of the luxury yachts, visit during the Cannes Yachting Festival. The latest yachts and boats are usually on sale, and you don’t have to be interested in buying to visit the sleekest sailing machines. The festival usually takes place on Le Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto, and you can get a holiday letting in Cannes and participate in the festival.
3. Experience the Film Festival
In mid-May, the world’s most famous Film Festival transforms Cannes and brings the great and the good to the city. A special buzz rings around the town for two weeks, and the chance of spotting celebrities is very high! The festival takes place all over town in every cinema, hotel and theatre so you will celebrate all aspects of art and filming. Most activities take place on the swanky street of La Croisette. You should get an apartment in Nice and attend the film festival since Cannes will be packed with visitors.
4. Go mural hunting
Cannes has been developing an extensive programme of giant murals for nearly 20 years. The result is a multitude of film-related paintings that adorn the walls of buildings along streets and avenues at various locations across the town. Hunt for the effigies of Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Batman and many more!
5. Breath in the pure air at La Croix-des-Gardes
The lungs of Cannes, La Croix des Gardes, is right in the centre of the town. Step through its gates into 200 acres of forest interlaced with trails, hikes and countless beautiful picnic spots. A wonderful change of pace from all the glitz! Take the five-minute drive from your holiday letting in Cannes La Bocca to enjoy the laid-out extensive gardens.
