You cannes experience the French Riviera in Cannes holiday homes

Cannes is synonymous with glamour, with A-list celebrities strutting their stuff during the Film Festival that takes over the town every May. We’re all familiar with the great and the good and the famous people walking the red carpet with the backdrop of the beautiful bay, but this stunning location on the French Riviera is available to us mere mortals, accessible with Cannes holiday rentals.

Cannes holiday homes are very much in demand during May, so if you do manage to secure one you are in for a treat as the city comes alive to celebrate the world of film. Whatever is happening around the city’s cinemas and all those glitzy parties in and around the Palais de Festivals though, is actually just a mere molecule of what else is on offer for holidaymakers in Cannes.

The beaches of Cannes

Cannes occupies an advantageous position on the French Riviera. The sweeping bay is as gorgeous as you expect it to be. The downside is that being a millionaire’s playground, the beach is actually privately owned, but there are two sections open to the public. The public areas do get very busy in high season so it’s good to learn very quickly where the other beaches in easy reach of Cannes holiday accommodation are. Some of the nicest beaches and certainly less crowded than Cannes are Plages du Midi on the way to the town of La Napoule and the pretty, tranquil beaches of Iles de Lerins are a short boat trip across the bay.

Doing the Cannes Cannes

As you would expect there are plenty of the trappings of luxury in Cannes. The shopping is superb. The places to see and be seen with armfuls of designer bags are the Rue d’Antibes and the very glamorous La Croisette. Here you can max out your credit card in the boutiques of Chanel, Gucci and Jean-Paul Gaultier. But, Cannes is an important tourist city in France and there are plenty of shops in this enclave that are friendlier to the budget, so you can still return to your

Cannes holiday villa laden with purchases.

You can escape the glitz by exploring the old part of the city, known as Le Suquet. Here are the original parts of the city and it includes an 11th century tower from where, if you can do the climb, is well worth the views. Also in Le Suquet, is the old port and a delightful picture is made of the brightly coloured old fishing boats rubbing shoulders with the sleek white luxury yachts.

In the Cannes

Eating out in Cannes is another excellent holiday experience. Not only do the restaurateurs here have the fierce national pride in their cuisine but they are catering to some of the most discerning palates. Even if you have self catering accommodation in Cannes, your kitchen will probably stay unused.

If Cannes still hasn’t satisfied your appetite for all things Riviera, you can take a 30 minute trip by train or car along the coast to Nice and enjoy even more beaches, boulevards, boutiques and bistros. A further 20 minutes on and you’ll hit Monaco and the stunner that is Monte Carlo.

Climatically speaking

The weather wouldn’t dare spoil the party. Summer temperatures in Cannes peak at 27 degrees and rarely drop below 20. Winters are mild with average temperatures of around 13 degrees so, holiday rentals in Cannes are still popular for winter sunshine breaks.

Getting to Cannes

Your journey will begin with a flight to Paris then a connection to Nice. You can fly to Nice International or maybe enjoy a trip through the French countryside on the TGV (high speed train). Alternatively, fly onto London and take advantage of the amazing number of cheap flights into Nice.

Large apartment with very large balcony and lovely swimming pool.

4 of 5
Very clean, large 3 bedroom apartment with two bathrooms and a separate toilet. Comfortable beds, both indoor and outdoor dining tables. We ate mainly on the balcony. Kitchen with all the basics for cooking. Large Supermarket just around the corner about a ten minute walk to the beach. Lovely pool in the grounds.
