This lovely sophisticated apartment is situated in a tranquil area just five minutes from the glitz and glamour of the Palais des Festivals' legendary red carpet.
The apartment offers plenty of space and stylish comfortable furnishings with every modern convenience so you can enjoy a relaxing holiday.
What better way to start your day than by opening the shutters and enjoying croissants and coffee at the glass dining table? The airy living room is elegantly furnished and guests will enjoy having the small balcony.
Later on, sink into the comfy sofa, watch a bit of TV or a DVD, and recharge your batteries before heading back out again.
The kitchen is accessed through an archway off the living area. Cheerfully fitted with yellow units, it is equipped with an American fridge/freezer, four-ring gas hob, oven, coffee machine and microwave. Complete with plenty of worktop space, guests will be able to whip up a tasty meal with ease.
The apartment sleeps four in two twin bedrooms. The rooms share access to a bathroom, a shower room and separate WC.
The world famous Croisette, ideal for a spot of people watching, is just around the corner, and the Palais des Festivals with its celebrated red carpet is literally a few minutes’ walk away.
Guests will love the proximity to the beach and also to Rue d’Antibes, which offers great boutique shopping. Several bars and restaurants are dotted around the surrounding streets, meaning guests will never have to go far for an early evening aperitif or a bite to eat.
One of the Riviera’s best food markets takes place every morning (except Monday) on the Rue du Marché Forville, a 15 minute stroll from the apartment, and there is a large supermarket situated between the apartment and the train station.
The train station is merely eight minutes away on foot, and from here there are direct trains to Antibes, Nice, Monaco and Grasse, as well as other smaller towns on the Riviera.
This property is let on a self-catering basis, however, this doesn’t mean you need to cook for yourself! There are a number of private chefs you can book who can prepare your meals for the full week or the odd night. Alternatively you could opt for a food delivery service.

You’ll need to organise your own bike hire when staying here. Things to consider are the type of bike you want to rent such as road, mountain, hard trail and/or an electric bike; and whether you’ll need helmets and protective clothing with your rental. You’re best off choosing a shop that is close to your accommodation for ease of access, and making it quicker to return the bike and pay at the end. Some companies may also deliver so it’s worth looking at all the options.

Cannes, like so many towns along the Riviera, has several distinct personalities: the glamorous boulevard along the port lined with belle epoque hotels, grand casinos and superyachts, the narrow, higgledy-piggeldy lanes of the old town, Le Suquet, and the long sandy beach with its beach clubs and bars. The shopping in Cannes is legendary- whether the more affordable shops along the pedestrianised street Meynadier and Rue d'Antibes, or the string of eye-wateringly expensive boutiques along the famous boulevard 'La Croisette'. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs to keep you busy- and of course, the strip of sophisticated beach clubs with their parasols and summertime DJs to have you swilling champagne as the sun sets.
Glamorous, glitzy Cannes is famous for its film festival and designer boutiques, grand hotels and palm- lined boulevards. Cannes is very easy to get to as it sits on the major trainline that runs all along the Riviera, linking it with Nice, Monaco, Marseilles and also with the TGV to Paris. (Note that there is no train station at Nice airport so you'll have to either walk or take a bus to the train station at St Laurent du Var.) An express bus (210) runs from Nice airport to Cannes, and there is a good local bus network from smaller towns.
Unsurprisingly given its glitzy reputation, Cannes has some seriously good dining on offer-for all budgets. We've got a detailed restaurant guide for you to check out here, but if you just want to wander until something strikes your fancy, Cannes is the town to do it - the narrow street running up the hill to the old town has some atmospheric restaurants, La Croisette boasts some brilliant terrace restaurants for people-watching, and Quai St. Pierre by the port is the place to head for a selection of seafood restaurants.

When it comes to sights worth seeing, Cannes is probably better known for its belle epoque hotels and festival halls than its historical monuments. Yet if you head away from the red carpet and casinos to the old town of Le Suquet, you'll find a touch of its medieval history in its 12th century church, Notre-Dame-de-l'Espérence and Tour de Mt. Chevalier. There are some nice views to be had over the coast from the ramparts up here too.

Things to Do Nearby
Of all the activities on offer in Cannes, one of the best (and definitely the cheapest) is to spend an hour or two strolling along the famed Croisette boulevard under the palms- past the grand white hotels and Palais de Festival building, past the beautiful sailing yachts clustered in the old port, and around the corner to the beach boardwalk. There are two daily markets to explore and a flea market each Saturday (also Sundays on the first weekend of the month.) For those craving nature and beauty, hop on one of the ferries over to the 'Cannes Islands'- Ille de Saint Honorat and Ille Saint Margherite. You can also catch a ferry to glamorous St Tropez from Cannes.

Cannes has several beaches to choose from, from non-smoking public beaches to glamorous private beach clubs with deckchairs, DJ's and flowing champagne. There are watersports galore, as well as beach volleyball courts that are busy long into the summer evenings. See our beach pages for details.

The closest golf course to Cannes is the Old Course at Mandelieu-la-Napoule, which is the oldest course on the Riviera. If you want to tread the greens with the celebrities, head inland to the world-class Cannes-Mougins Golf Club in the rolling hills (but remember your wallet-green fees will set you back 120-200 euro.) One thing the Riviera certainly isn't short of is golf clubs.

As you’d expect, there’s no shortage of things to do at night in this town, whether you’re in the mood for a louche piano bar, exclusive nightclub or relaxed Irish pub. Dress up for the occasion at one of the three famous casinos, catch a concert or head to one of the superclubs to dance the night away under the palms. See our nightlife guide for the best of the vibrant Cannes nightlife.
