Cannes

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.

Cannes in a Nutshell

Life’s A Beach
 
  • La Croisette is a stretch of road along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea and is home to phenomenal stretches of golden sands.
     
  • Plage de la Bocca is ideal choice for families. Boasting sandy dunes, cerulean waters and proximity to restaurants and boutiques, you can really make a day of it.
     
  • Plage du Midi is a similar choice if you’re spending the day in the Le Suquet neighbourhood, complete with a vast array of watersports so every adrenaline-junkie can get in on the thrills.
     
  • A more quiet and tranquil option is Palm Beach. Expect to see kite surfers, boats heading to the Island of Sainte Marguerite and travellers tucking into homemade picnics.

     
  • Looking out onto the Mediterranean, Palme d’Or is a magnificent venue that is easily one of the most acclaimed in Cannes. Art-deco in style and traditional in cuisine, star dishes include The “Black Angus” Chateaubriand and The Wild Turbot from the Atlantic Ocean. Aromatic flavours are guaranteed with every mouthful when dining at this fine establishment.
     
  • If spending the day on Suquet Hill, lunch or dinner at Table 22 by Mantel simply has to be done. Traditional ingredients are used throughout and with dishes such as lobster raviolis and roasted rack of lamb from Provence, you can expect the authentic flavours of France to make your mouth water just by reading the menu descriptions.

     
Soak Up The Culture
 
  • If you’re here when it’s film festival time there’s two places that you must be aware of; La Croisette and Palais des Festivals.
     
  • La Crosiette promenade is ideal for travellers wanting to soak up the sun, and is awash with journalists, screaming fans and plenty of celebs. Don’t expect the area to be quiet when visiting in the colder months, holiday makers come flocking regardless of season.
     
  • Palais des Festivals is the HQ of the annual film thrash. As well as being the perfect evening stroll, you can also watch the superyachts and boats come in to dock too.
     
  • The Suquet neighbourhood pays homage to the heritage of Cannes as an old fishing village. Gaze upon fisherman at work for the day, swing by traditional restaurants for lunch or head to the museums housed here, and stroll through the exhibitions, learning something new as you go.
