Cannes is a city that boasts haute-couture as its mother-tongue. The resort town in the French Riviera is considered to be Beverly Hills’ French cousin… and we can see the similarities. High-end boutiques, A-List film stars… it’s a luxe-lover’s mecca.
Many of the five-star hotels can be found on the La Croisette promenade, so if your aim is to have the perfect sand and sea stay, this choice is perfect. Many boast high-end facilities along with contemporary and retro décor that’s sure to make a lasting impression. All resorts also have a lavish array of leisure facilities such as private beach clubs, swimming pools, fitness facilities and spas so you can get red-carpet ready in no time. Award-winning cuisine can be found in the majority too, ideal for couples or families partial to gourmet fare.
Speaking of food, Cannes is awash with independent cafes, indulgent bistros and fine dining eateries that will simply blow you away with the amount of aromatic meals on offer. Due to the fishing village heritage that neighbourhoods such as Suquet pay homage to, expect delectable dishes from the deep to be standard along with traditional flavours of the French Riviera accompanied by an extensive wine list. Food markets are also very popular with locals and travellers alike, with Marche Forville showcasing the love of fine French food that’s still going strong today. The site becomes a flea market on Mondays, so if you’ve looking for high-end antiques and the odd souvenir or one-off trinket, this is a must.
For some high-end culture and intermittent luxuriating in a lounger, Cannes is the quintessential choice. Gorgeous architecture and an array of museums can be found throughout, and don’t forget to head to Île Sante-Marguerite and wander through this former island fortress prison. Musée de la Mer is a must for lovers of the ocean, and with ship wrecks and many artifacts housed here, families are bound to be in their element.
