About the property

Centre Ville apartment, a short walk to Cannes Palais des Festivals and beach

Why not check out our video of the apartment at: homeaway.co.uk/p407177.

Our newly renovated garden apartment is an approx 10 mins easy walk to the centre of Cannes and the famous Palais des Festivals on the Croisette.

It provides comfortable contemporary Provencal style accommodation for holiday self-catering rentals and for people attending the Cannes Film Festival, the MIPCOM, MIPIM and MIPTV conferences or the Cannes Boat Show.

The well equipped eat-in kitchen is semi-open plan to the living room which opens onto a private south facing garden and terrace with parasol and table for six.

Bedroom 1 has a spacious independent shower room with two washbasins.

Bedroom 2 has a washbasin & stone tiled shower incorporated into the room.

Independent W.C.

Bedroom 3, at the rear of the apartment, has an en suite shower room with two wash basins, a second W.C., and laundry area with washing and drying machines.

The apartment has air conditioning, WiFi access, dimmable low voltage halogen lighting, a flat screen TV, DVD Player and stereo radio/CD player.

An excellent supermarket, cafes, fitness centre and bakeries are five mins walk away.

General: We let and manage our apartment ourselves in order to offer competitive rental rates and we are on hand to help you with any additional information you may need on your arrival in Cannes. We speak English & French.

We will meet you at the apartment with the keys and we ask you to e-mail us in advance with your anticipated time of arrival in Cannes and keep our contact telephone number on you in case you are delayed.

We provide a welcome pack of a bottle of wine and a bottle of milk in the fridge, a small jar of coffee, a bar of soap at each washbasin and toilet paper in each WC. We also provide cleaning materials for the dish washer and washing machine.

A nearby shop sells beach towels, children's toys, rubber rings and lilos for the beach.

If you need any specific information on anything or have any special requests then please e-mail us and hopefully we will be able to help.

Getting Around : There is a regular and efficient bus shuttle service from Nice airport to Cannes (Hotel de Ville) taking approx 40 minutes.

The beach, the bars, the restaurants and shops in Cannes are very centrally located and most are within walking distance of each other.

The A8 motorway is easily accessed and it is a quick way to visit the numerous villages and attractions along the Riviera.

Cannes has numerous secure underground fee paying car parks.

A little white train runs along the seafront and through part of the town, pointing out interesting sights which is a good way to get a taste of Cannes at the start of your visit, and children love it!

The famous villages along the coast like Menton and Villeneuve are accessible by train from Cannes station which is ten mins walk from the apartment, and the ferry from Cannes will take you to St Tropez, St Raphael and other ports along the coast. Several beach restaurants offer breakfast and sun lounger hire for the day.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed between Xmas and New Year and despite the in-hospital arrival and departure time David picked us up and went out of his way to ensure the arrival and departure was smooth.

The flat is excellent, really. Newly and tastefully decorated with more than expected facilities such as cookware, crockery, etc. Beds comfy, bathroom warm, TV etc fine. A lot of small details that make a holiday / stay smooth and happy.

For those considering Cannes in winter... it's not that cold, but not that warm either. But the flat was good offering both air con and heating. The garden is beautiful, although I'd have to see it in summer I think to really enjoy it.

David has left clear instructions and maps and guides which is helpful. Bottom line it really is 3 mins from a good patisserie and supermarket; less than 10 mins to the railway station and 15 from the beach; i.e. very convenient.

All in all. Very nice and highly recommended.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully decorated and equipped apartment with a lovely garden and patio area. Well situated to walk into central Cannes, but far enough away to avoid late night noise. Owners could not have been more helpful and provided excellent local knowledge, especially regarding the two closest restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment

Great property - would stay again

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment which had everything our family of 4 needed for a week in Cannes earlier this month. The kitchen and bathrooms were very spacious, modern and well fitted out. The 3 bedrooms are all double in size with plenty of space and cupboards. The living room is well laid out and comfortable - the children appreciated the fast wifi. We ate out in the lovely large garden each day. The area is surprisingly quiet for being so close to the centre of the town, it's a 10 minute walk to the train station and not much further to the beaches. We had a car but didn't really need it, there's plenty of free parking nearby.

Our stay was enhanced by David's welcome and friendliness on arrival and departure. While the apartment had everything we needed we got the impression he'd have gone out his way for anything that we were missing. His communication throughout the booking process was very prompt and professional.

If we are in Cannes again then we would definitely look to stay here.

Great apartment for our stay in sunny Cannes

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment especially the garden which gave us some great outside space to enjoy.

It is in a quiet location only ten minutes walking distance from the centre of Cannes although the walk back is a little hilly. It has spacious rooms, well equipped and of a high standard.

David was extremely helpful and ensured that we had all the information we needed. I also found the communication during the booking process with David and Karina to be excellent.

I would certainly recommend this apartment and would be happy to stay again.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

David could not have been more wonderful and accommodating! What a great guy, with a beautiful property (that garden - swoon!) The weather was perfect for the stroll into the city. It worked out so well.

Couldn't have been happier with our selection. Thanks so much!

Perfect place, perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

We choose the appartment in Cannes due to its location close to city center and train station and the impression we had from the pictures. It was every thing what we expected - and more.

Especially David and Karen, the landlords, were very nice and generous, They took our luggage (and us) from the airport shuttle station up the hill to the appartment and gave us all information we needed for the stay. When our flight was cancelled, we were only to get a flight one day later and they offered us to stay on without any charge.

The appartment is very well equipped, modern and quiet. It is only a short walk to supermarket and to Cannes centre. We really enjoyed the week. Highly recommended !
