Brought up on the East coast of Ireland, I am married with three children. I am a chemical engineer and I currently work for an international building materials group. I love to travel as part of my work and, of course, for holidays. I am living in Ireland although I have lived for extended periods in the UK, France, Zambia and Ukraine. Currently I am spending a lot of my time in Eastern Europe.
John purchased this apartment in 2007
Being a wine lover I have always enjoyed holidaying in France. A friend bought a place in Nice in 2005 and this brought my attention to the unique attractions of the Cote d'Azur. Cannes is a more compact town and is easier to explore on foot than Nice. It has great shopping, beautiful sandy beaches, wonderful restaurants and much more. This property stood out as being particularly suitable for our family of two adults and three (growing) children. It has lots of room for everyone to flop out and do their own thing both indoors and outdoors on the large terrace upstairs. Since 2007 we have holidayed here each year in June and September and otherwise we try to get down here for weekends in May and October with family and friends.
High ceilings and beautiful original tiled floors downstairs. Large sun filled terrace upstairs (at roof top level) with views towards the sea and the old town. Very few properties in the centre of Cannes can offer such a large and sunny terrace.
We enjoyed our stay here very much. This apartment is spacious and allowed our family of three, and two in laws, to vacation together in great spirit. We found the description to be quite accurate. The apartment has some older features but is very clean. John, the owner provided us with wonderful and timely communication at every opportunity. He even gave us a guide to the apartment and surrounding area which is quite helpful.
During our visit we went to the outdoor market almost every day and bought the most delicious, and beautiful food from farmers who live near by. We also spent time on the beach near the Palais, and took a few drives to beaches near by in Ferjus. The parking location John recommended provided us with easy access to our car, for a relatively low rate.
We absolutely recommend this apartment as a great place to stay. It is especially wonderful for families, couples traveling together, small groups (girlfriends getaways), etc.
We had a wonderful time, the apartment was perfect for our family reunion visiting our granddaughter. Very clean apartment with everything you need to cook if you want to stay in for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Close to everything for shopping and enjoying the City of Cannes. I have only one suggestion, it is not a criticism. An installation of a grab bar for getting in and out of the tub would be helpful for an older person. It was a lovely vacation, a lovely apartment and a lovely city. Thank you!
was very pleased with the view from the upper terrace and a really short distance to Palais de Festivals. This apartment is great option for two families or a larger group of friends. I would certainly recommend this.
We've stayed in Cannes before so were looking for something central for our most recent visit. The location of this apartment is absolutely perfect. It is as good as central to Cannes as you can realistically get.
Another bonus we hadn't fully appreciated from the description of the property is the layout. Clearly, at some stage, the 2 floors were individual flats - joined at a later time by a spiral staircase. We were 2 families traveling (with a child each 5yrs and 2yrs) and once we'd split off for the night - we literally didn't hear a thing from each other.
A little care needs to be taken with children and the spiral staircase, however, this would be true of any stairs and children.
We would definitely recommend this property and will likely return.
This was our second visit to this beautiful appartment and we were not disappointed. We were two families holidaying together and this appartment comfortably accommodates sevenpeople. It has a perfect central location but is peaceful at night so ideal. The appartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The balcony is a real bonus and a lovely place to relax in the evening. We hope to return again one-day.
This is a lovely roomy, clean, well appointed apartment is situated within walking distance the beach, shops, station, restaurants and many of the local attractions. We were three mature couples and this apartment worked really well for us. The detailed list of instructions provided by the owner for the apartment and any services that might be required was a great help. As with many of the older areas around Europe there was no parking with the apartment however there was secure parking available nearby.
The apartment is located in the centre of Cannes, just 50m from Rue d'Antibes (the main shopping street of Cannes), 250m from the Palais de Festivals, 250m from the beach, 250m from the old port and 200m from the train station connecting Cannes with Monaco, Nice, Antibes, Juan les Pins and other popular beach resorts along the French Riviera. Rue Buttura is a quiet street with little or no traffic day or night therefore you can get full benefit of the roof terrace (not overlooked) which gets sun from 11.00am until sunset each day. Visit the boutiques on rue d'Antibes, browse in the nearby markets of Forville and Gambetta, have a coffee or light lunch in da Laura around the corner..... There is something for everyone in the family to do within easy walking distance.
