Why Nicola Gowans chose Riou - Petit Juas - Av de Grasse

We purchased this studio in 2006. We where attracted to the classic 19th century building and the practicality of all the studio offered for a comfortable stay in Cannes, as it is in the center of Cannes. Its location is fantastic, a car is not needed to enjoy the city or travel to other places like Nice, Antibes or italy, The apartment is walking distance to the buss and trans. All the beaches are walking distance as is the famous Rue Antibes.

What makes this apartment unique

Cannes is full of things to do, beautiful beaches and all the shopping anyone could want. Grate places to eat and wonderful food typical of the south of France. Lots of night life & bars and cafes. The apartment is located close to the bus stop and also the train station, so it make it easy to pop over to Nice, Monaco, Antibes or Italy for the day.

This apartment is so well located you dont need a car, everything is with in a 5 min walk. The apartment being on the 4th floor makes it very quiet, not usual in Cannes. All our guest enjoy the peace & have commented on how peaceful & yet so well located.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed in this apartment last year for MIPIN congress.

I found the apartment clean and so practical and comfortable. I could walk everywhere as it's in the center of Cannes. The welcome package was a lovely and the kitchen was easy to cook in well equipped.

Thank you for everything.

Sincerely yours,

Sara Gillins.

Really comfortable week's stay. And very good location.

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was warm, comfortable, everything needed was to hand for my stay in Cannes.

Lift to fourth floor means apartment is away from the traffic - but very central so easy walking to most parts of the town. 5 mins to the marina. Nice touches like fruit and wine on arrival made a pleasant stay. Owner friendly and helpful.
