What to book?

Families & Kids

Residence Cannes Villa Francia is a family-friendly resort. If you don't want to travel with too much luggage you can book a Baby Kit (suitable for infants aged 0 to 2 years - 15kg max):

  • 1 folding cot (French Standard EN 716) with 1 fitted sheet
  • 1 highchair (for infants aged 6 months and above)

You can also hire the following items:

  • baby bath

  • food processor/mixer
  • baby back carrier (mountain)
  • anti-UV tent

Please note: subject to availability and residence.


You’ll need to book your own transfers when staying here. Your main options are shared or private transfers, but consider whether you would prefer a door-to-door service or a (generally cheaper) “communal” drop-off point at your destination.

Cycle Hire

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.

Indoor and outdoor parking spaces can be reserved for an extra charge, subject to availability.
