Updated: 24-Oct-2016
Brand Newly Renovated, Our 53m2 Loft Apartment Is Flooded With Light



The rates are in pounds stirling and are as follows:




MAPIC: £1120

MIDEM: £1120

MIPIM: £2520

MIPTV: £1680


MIPCOM: £1680



Turn down a tiny street off the Rue Meynadier and on the corner on the third floor you will find our charming little loft apartment. Everything brand newly done and just finished, there are oak floors, lovely high ceilings and windows all around, meaning the apartment is lovely and light. Being on the corner it is dual aspect. There's a little balcony where you can have your morning coffee looking out over a roof garden opposite. There is a smart TV, Apple TV and free Wifi. In the generous sized bathroom there is both a beautiful stone clad shower & a claw footed bath for luxurious soaking as well as lots of cupboard space and a dressing table. The 53m2 loft is ideal for one person, a couple or two friends. There is a king sized bed upstairs in the bedroom on the mezzanine level. There is also a brand new good sized double sofa bed in the living room, although be aware that if you have guests sleeping on it they will have to cross the corner of the bedroom upstairs to use the bathroom - so really only recommended if you are good friends or family.

Smart TV, Apple TV, Wifi, hair-dryer, Nespresso coffee machine, toaster, cooker + induction hob, washer/dryer, dishwasher, kettle, Mitsubishi air conditioning and heating, Bosch fridge/freezer, iron & ironing board, umbrella ( it usually rains during the film festival at some point!).

We live only half an hour away so are always on hand to help or advise. We can meet you at the bus stop or the station if you need us to take you to the apartment.

We have poured our hearts into making our little loft a warm welcoming unique and luxurious place to stay right in the heart of old Cannes, so we hope that people will respect it and enjoy it as much as we do. We want it to feel like the most fabulous and comfortable private hotel suite.

The apartment is on the 3rd ( top ) floor of a small building ( Three flats including ours ). There is no lift - although the stair flights are wide and short so it doesn't feel too bad at all. Unfortunately therefore not suitable for wheelchairs.

PARKING: opposite the front door of our building is the pedestrian exit to the Parking Ferrage - a secure public car park with very favourable rates if staying for a while eg €72,70 for seven days or €139 euros for 30'days ( 1 month ). You can book your parking space in advance. You can park right next to the pedestrian exit and you literally cross the tiny road and you're in our building - so VERY convenient for loading / unloading your bags into the apartment and also extremely quick & easy access to your car if you're using it. The first hour in the car park is free - so if you didn't want to pay any parking fees during your holiday or you're not going to be using your car during your stay in Cannes you could park there for one hour to load / unload your bags and then take your car to one of the free car parks ( eg at the Point Croisette ) and leave the car there for the duration of your stay for free. However the Parking Ferrage is extremely convenient for our apartment.

No pets. No smoking.

About the Owner

My husband Guy and I live in a little hilltop village in the South of France and just bought and renovated this beautiful little loft apartment in Cannes right in the old part of town near the port and love using it ourselves. We are excited to be able to rent out the apartment and very happy to let others have the chance to experience the best that Cannes has to offer from a comfortable and luxurious base that is close to everything. I am an artist who loves film, TV, the sea, reading, swimming pools, after dinner games, people, laughing and food! and chocolate!! There is a cinema right round the corner from the flat which shows the latest films in English, and countless restaurants and bars at your fingertips. We love going to Cannes for a taste of the sea and the beach and a bit of retail therapy! The famous bustling marche Forville is heaven for buying fruit and veg and getting a real friendly flavour of France. We also love to rummage in the bric a brac market on Mondays to try to discover a hidden treasure! We sit outside the patisserie drinking coffee and eating croissants and watching the most fascinating characters go by. We will do everything we can to make your stay as special, comfortable and easy as possible. My motto in life is to smile and the world smiles back at you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful apartment, really quirky and cosy! Clare made us feel very at home and stocked up the fridge for us arriving. The apartment is very central to everywhere you'd want to go in Cannes. Was great having the Apple TV to watch. Will hopefully be back soon!

We cannot say enough about our stay in this beautiful apartment, our lovely host and wonderful Cannes. Claire was exceptional to deal with from start to finish. Her emails were always timely and helpful, she ensured our arrival was seamless (driving instructions and parking), and followed up to make sure our trip was going well. She even provided welcoming provisions for our evening arrival and breakfast that met our specific dietary requirements. The apartment itself was exceptional and was even more beautiful than the pictures. It was very clean and had everything we needed and more. The location was perfect, close to the beach, shopping and restaurants and Claire made some recommendations that turned out to be excellent. It was such a great place to stay that it made me want to stay in and relax. I would definitely recommend this place to others and would be privileged to stay here again.

This apartment is a little piece of paradise in the centre of Cannes. It is beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Our host, the very charming Clare, so thoughtfully left provisions in the fridge to welcome us. During our stay if there was anything we needed Clare was at the end of the phone or very speedy email to provide all local knowledge.

This apartment is located beside all the shops you will need and the food market is on your doorstep. We found a great friendly beach to hang out within a 5 minute walk (O'key Beach), rented bike down the road and ate in the local restaurants all on your doorstep.

This is the perfect place to stay in Cannes. We will definitely be back.

Firstly, the photos really are accurate...the interior, the design, and the layout are cleverly and impressively combined to create a homely yet stylish holiday apartment which you wish was your home. It comes with everything you need, there was not one thing I wanted for. Secondly, location is ideal, right in the heart of the town near shops, beach, train station, supermarket, and restaurants, yet secluded down a walk way so you are not disturbed by any noise. And last but not least, the owners are the most welcoming and accommodating people, better service than I have had at 5 star hotels, from answering every email promptly to helping book resturants for special occasions. I will most certainly be returning.

Wonderful location- cute apartment

  • 4 of 5

My wife and i stayed at the apartment for a week in early August and we thought it was wonderful. It's very close to the Ferrage car park and very convenient to arrive. It is also very close to the market to buy things to cook a nice dinner if you felt so inclined ( we ate out every night for a couple week so it was nice to have a basic home cooked meal with delicious farm fresh ingredients). It is also very central to the cute street shops of Cannes. It's not super close to the beach but an easy walk for 10mins.

The two downsides to the apartment would be that it's on the 3rd floor ( 4th floor for Americans), and the air conditioning doesn't keep the bedroom area the same temperature as downstairs ( it's a lofted bedroom). It was a bit of an issue the first night given how hot it was, but it was fine thereafter.

Owner's Response: Dear Eliott, Thank you so much for your very constructive review, we really appreciate you taking the time to write. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and made good use of the fantastic market!! Yes we agree with you it can be considered a downside that the apartment is on the third floor - but we find the short wide flights of stairs not too bad at all - and on the positive side being on the third floor means that the flat is lovely and light and quiet, and has a great view onto a roof garden. If it was lower down in the building it would be darker and only look out over the other side of the street at buildings! We also take on board your comments about the air conditioning cooling the downstairs more than the mezzanine level & that is why we have provided two movable fans to circulate the cool air around the whole apartment in this exceptionally hot summer - and you can also move the direction of the louvres on the air conditioning unit to point more upwards and that cools the upstairs much more. - maybe I didn't explain that to you well enough & for that I apologise. I'm really sorry that your first night felt too warm upstairs - I'm glad it was OK after that! We were really delighted that you chose to stay in our little loft apartment and we really hope that we can welcome you both again one day!

From the Owner

We bought this apartment because we've been living in the countryside nearby for nearly twelve years now, and had been coming into Cannes to go to the beach the shops and the cinema and get a little taste of the metropolitan life we had left behind in London! I had often thought how nice it would be to be able to stay the night and not have to drive home on the motorway. We looked at lots of apartments in Cannes - all near to the port and the Rue d'Antibes and the action - and as soon as we walked into this apartment we knew it was for us. It just had a lovely feeling - very light with double height ceilings and lots of windows and some french doors out onto a little balcony - it is on the 3rd floor but looks out over two roof gardens so you see greenery when you look out of the windows. The bathroom / dressing room is also exceptionally luxurious and generous sized - very nice for anyone staying for the festivals - and it is so central and near to the Palais des Festivals - you can run home and have a shower and change and be back before anyone has noticed you have gone!

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

The apartment is very near the old port and is in the old town, right off Rue Meynardier - which is a lovely little cobbled shopping street full of wonderful shops and bursting with French character. The apartment is superbly located for congress and festivals being within about two minutes walk from the Palais des Festivals and is also brilliantly located for transport. Literally round the corner is the famous Marche Forville where every day you can buy fruit, vegetables, fish, pasta, and flowers - on Mondays it is replaced by a brilliant bric a brac market. There are four chemists just around the block, a patisserie where you can buy croissants and cakes, a butcher, fishmonger, bank and countless lovely little bars and restaurants. At the bottom of our ( short ) little alley is a lovely delicatessen and one of the best chocolatiers in France and a lovely little olive oil and soap shop. You are just off the Rue d'Antibes with all its' great clothes shopping, a cinema showing films in English, an ice cream parlour and a Planet Sushi. There is also a little Spar supermarket round the corner, as well as a Carrefour and a Monoprix for everyday supplies. Everything you could need is right on your doorstep. It is literally two minutes walk to the Palais des Festivals so ideal for all the congress events. The beaches are just a few minutes walk from the apartment. You can just wander along and settle down on the main public beach or you can have lunch in one of the beachside restaurants and then get sun loungers on their private areas of beach and waiter service while you sunbathe. You can also take the ferry to either of the two islands which lie just off Cannes - Les Iles de Lerins ( one has a monastery on it ) and spend a heavenly day exploring, wandering through beautiful woodland and find yourself a deserted spot under the olive trees by some rocks for a picnic - with great snorkelling. Or you can also take a boat to Saint Tropez which takes one and a quarter hours each way and is a lovely way to go there and misses out all the traffic of driving. There is a little beauty salon just further down the alley from the apartment, We can provide their phone number before you come.

Getting around

A couple of hundred yards from the train station, the bus depot, a taxi rank and also from the express bus to Nice Airport. You can easily walk to the beaches, the Croisette, the Palais, the Suquet and the Port in just a minute or two. There is the exit to a public car park ( Parking Ferrage ) literally opposite the front door of the building - 1st hour of parking free and better parking rates if staying for several days or weeks.

Other Things to Note

The apartment is on the 3rd ( top ) floor of a small building ( Three flats including ours ). There is no lift - although the stair flights are wide and short so it doesn't feel too bad at all. Unfortunately therefore not suitable for wheelchairs.

From the Owner

We also love the fact that the apartment is located right off the fantastic Rue Meynadier and the Marche Forville - there are little cobbled streets and adorable shops and delicatessens, one of the best chocolatiers in France, and so many bars and restaurants, and all just a hop from the port and the beach. If you don't have a car it doesn't matter at all - everything is right on your doorstep - an easy walk to everything. If you do have a car the apartment is right by the pedestrian exit to a public underground car park ( parking Ferrage ) so couldn't be easier. There are special rates for long term parking ( €72,70 for seven days and €139 euros for 30 days ( 1 month ) ). You are also within easy walking distance to the train station, - straight along at the end of the road ( about 4 minutes walk ), also the bus station and taxi rank and express bus to the airport is also about 2 minutes walk from the apartment. Around where the apartment is it all feels like a very friendly village.
