Welcome to Cannes
The mild Mediterranean climate brings lush palm tree line boulevards and long balmy nights in the summer, along with perfect cycling, running and sailing conditions over the winter months.
Basking in the sun, Cannes is a city that the rich and famous have been coming to for over 150 years; it simply sparkles with glamour, whilst the grandeur of the coastal promenade (La Croisette) and the belle epoque buildings reflect it's aristocratic history. The prestigious Cannes Film Festival of Cannes takes place annually in May and has been an important event for Cannes since it began in 1946. Drawing famous movie stars from around the world to the glittering red-carpet gala, has earned the city an international reputation for promoting cinema and the art of filmmaking.
Today, Cannes is still home to the internationally wealthy who provide a ready & willing clientèle to the numerous designer boutiques, swanky bars and lavish hotels. Behind the glitz however, there is a softer side to Cannes - the district of Le Suquet is the heart of the old town and is filled with little lanes, ancient buildings and the old harbour (home to traditional fishing boats and luxury yachts).
