About the Owner
About Shelley Grisley
I live with my husband and two teenage children in a small village near Guildford in the Surrey Hills. I very much enjoy walking in the beautiful countryside surrounding us, practising Yoga and spending as much time as I can with my family and close friends. We decided to buy property in the South of France as we wanted somewhere we could get to easily and quickly, with a great location, in a traditional apartment building, close to all the restaurants and amenities there are to offer and with a general guarantee of warm weather and wanted a sound investment. This is exactly what we have in Cannes now with our beautiful apartments and always look forward to our next trip there.
Shelley Grisley purchased this apartment in 2010
Why Shelley Grisley chose Cannes
The apartments are very comfortable and give the feeling of 'home' but the best thing is the beautiful large Terrace which each apartment has. We have made the terraces to look like small gardens, with Cypress trees, Jasmine climbing up trellaces and bamboo plants which all help to give a sense of calm and make the areas very pretty and appealing. The large pergolas provide essential shade from the midday sun and it is so lovely to be able to spend a great deal of time outside in the privacy of our own apartment - right in the middle of a lively town! We enjoy sitting out in the evenings and having dinner and relaxing on the terrace without having the need to book up restaurants or eat inside the apartment. It is hard to imagine sometimes that the apartment is right in the centre of such a lively town when we are relaxing outside on our beautiful Terrace! It is a truly private haven for us as a family and we very much enjoy staying with our friends and using both apartments - thereby allowing us all to have our own privacy, yet to be next door to each other and have our own Terraces to use -it is just perfect.
What makes this apartment unique
The location of the apartments being situated on rue Freres Casanova, which is a small pedestrian street off the busy rue d'Antibes and also running parallel with rue d'Antibes is the lovely pedestrian street of rue Hoches, which is lined with coffee shops and restaurants. The restriction of vehicles is wonderful and so makes the atmosphere at the apartment calm and peaceful. The greatest asset are the large terraces. We spend many hours relaxing and having meals around our dining tables or just lazing in the sunshine reading a book and enjoying the beautiful sunshine in private. We then choose our times to go down to the beach for a swim, usually early in the morning or late afternoon. It is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy and is our real 'home away from home'!
A deposit of 50% of the total rent is payable when making your booking. The balance of the rental plus the refundable security deposit of €1,000 per week is payable 60 days before the start of the rental period.

Perfection in one of the best locations in Cannes
We have stayed in many holidays rentals across Europe and the UK, but Shelley and David's apartment was by far the most well equipped, comfortable and luxurious. From the superb, spacious terrace to the crisp white bed linen and well appointed bathrooms - we wanted for nothing. Shelley was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish and the apartment is a complete delight! A quiet, tranquil haven in the heart of bustling Cannes. We hope to return.
A wonderful apartment in the centre of Cannes
My husband and I stayed for two fantastic weeks in the two-bedroomed apartment. The location is perfect, right in the heart of Cannes and the apartment is thoughtfully furnished. The air-conditioned rooms are a lovely escape from the heat and bustle of the town but it is the large terrace which makes the apartment so special - a private space and much used during our stay.
The apartment is very quiet, with a good situation near the beach, near the principal street of Cannes, you don't need a car if you stay in Cannes.
The terrace is very agreable.
That really was a nice week, thank you!
Beautiful and elegant home-from-home in Cannes...
I arranged to stay in this apartment as part of a birthday present for my boyfriend and it could not have been more perfect. We were both a little overwhelmed when we first arrived after staying in a box-like room in Nice for the first two nights of our holiday!
I was primarily amazed by the spaciousness of the apartment. The decor throughout is neutral but thoughtful and the terrace is large, laced with intricate designs and light colours which creates an air of elegance. I cooked a meal on the second night of our stay and the kitchen proved itself to be more than adequate for the purposes of this, fully equipped from microwave to wooden spoon : )
The bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable and the ensuite bathroom is beautiful with a spacious bath and powerful shower! The windows in the bedroom are huge and it was so lovely to open the blinds in the morning to a flood of sunlight and the little old lady opposite watering her flowers in the window box.
We had many a wander along the rue d'Antibes and discovered a Monoprix (where I recommend going to have a look at the fruit and vegetable section) and spent a day on the beach feeling very important as our drinks were brought to us while we lay basking in the sun!
There is no shortage of pleasant restaurants and places to go or see in Cannes, but the evening that we spent on the terrace of the apartment with a bottle of wine, a home-made Ratatouille, and some playing cards, was the best evening of our holiday!
I strongly recommend staying in this accommodation as the location and the apartment are all, and more, than you could ask for when staying abroad!
We had an amazing holiday and now have a scrap book full of stories, pictures, souvenirs and poems so thank you to the owners for facilitating this : )
Fabulous 2 bed apartment in perfect location
We spent 2 lovely weeks in this beautiful apartment in July, and our only complaint was that we didn’t stay longer! Of the many apartments we have rented throughout France, we can say, without reservation, that this one is our absolute favourite. It’s worth the trip for the terrace alone as it is so fantastic to be able to relax in the sunshine or have a meal outside during a balmy evening. The apartment itself is extremely spacious and equipped to a very high standard, with everything anyone could possibly need for a relaxing vacation. It’s just like a home away from home. One of the best beaches in Cannes is just a couple of minutes’ walk away and the Old Town, Port and all the action of La Croisette is also so close by. It is lovely that both the apartments are almost next door to each other as our friends stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment at the same time as us while we stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. We had our own privacy having our own apartment but we were able to get together for meals or drinks on the terraces which was perfect. The location was fantastic being on such a pretty pedestrian street where there are a variety of restaurants, cafes, markets and grocery stores almost on the doorstep. We were lucky enough to hire a car during our holiday, be able to take advantage of local sites and park it in central Cannes about a 5 minute walk from the apartment. Shelley couldn’t have been more helpful with her contacts and advice and so accommodating to ensure that we had a carefree holiday. All in all a great experience, and we can’t wait to come back!
Best apartment in Cannes
Me and my fiance stayed at the 2 bedroom apartment for a month throughout December 2012. We were absolutely delighted with the apartment, ideal location, impeccably clean and comfortable, beautifully furnished and excellently equipped with a gorgeous balcony area.
The apartment is a stones throw from shopping, beaches and restaurants. It had all the comforts of home with the added luxury that one comes to expect from a trip to Cannes. The owner, Shelley and the lady that looked after the apartments, Katherine were incredibly helpful, friendly and attentive throughout our stay.
We will not even consider staying anywhere else on our next trip to Cannes and will recommend this beautiful apartment to anyone.

With the apartments situated on a small pedestrian street there are several restaurants literally outside our front door. 50 metres away is the Rue D'Antibes made famous for its exclusive boutiques. Just 5 minutes stroll away is the Boulevard de la Croisette with fine hotels Palm trees line the promenade and beaches offering beach bars, water sports or just plain relaxation in the sun and azure sea. Stroll along the narrow intimate streets which lead up to Le Suquet and you realise why Cannes is home to so many artists who parade their artwork in the many galleries and markets. Visit the Fourville Market for flowers, cheeses, fruit, oils, vegetables, fish and meat (on Monday it turns into an antique market). The Gambetta Market is 2 minutes walk away and is open every morning offering fresh fruit, vegetables and wines, etc. - in fact all you need for the day!

The City of Cannes is situated in the south of France in the Riviera region - has a population of approximately 70,000. Cannes is famous around the world for the Film Festival. It is a luxurious city with a thriving tourist industry on the Cote d'Azur. The climate in Cannes is very similar to other Mediterranean countries. Temperatures are at their highest from June to September (20-23°C). However, April (13°C), May (17°C) and October (16°C) are still very warm. The mountains are a short drive away and offer spectacular cool lakes for canoeing, medieval villages and the Gorge du Verdon is Europe's Grand Canyon that has to be seen. In the winter, 100 km away is the Isola 2000 ski resort offering 120km of downhill piste that is fantastic for intermediate skiers.
