About the Owner

I was brought up in Cannes and always dreamt of having an apartment in the magnificent “Le Californie”. I now live in England but I still I love Cannes as much now as I did then.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We’ve visited this apartment several times now and enjoy its peaceful environment and yet its proximity to Cannes. It is set in a magnificent and romantic setting with lovely views across the gardens, to the sea beyond. There is private parking but Cannes station gives good access to the whole of the coast and the buses are inexpensive. I would highly recommend Le Californie as an excellent base to explore the area.



After a long train trip it was an oasis of calm and comfort with a view to the sea through waving palms in a manicured lawn. We aspire to living in such style the other fifty one weeks of the year if only we can give up working! For some it might be a bit of a hike to the sea and the town but we regarded it as a bonus to get fit.



This apartment exceeded expectations, and great to come back to after a long day out. We used the local train which was cheap and easy. We also took a boat to one of the islands off Cannes which was well worth doing. We will come again!

Affordable luxury in Cannes!

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment was totally as described and the attention to detail that Elizabet had given with regard to the directions and access to this lovely home was excellent.. We would highly recommend this Apartment as an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful coastline although it is not ideally situated for anyone who has difficulty in walking.

However local public transport was very good, we used the local 6b bus to the station and were pleased that we took the coastal train to Monaco as the traffic there was horrendous. We would certainly recommend this Apartment to our friends as excellent value and September as a very good time to miss the crowds in this part of the world.

Wonderful apartment, fantastic sea views.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is stylishly decorated in a beautiful historic former hotel building. The apartment is well equipped and extreemly comfortable. There are magnificent gardens that are well kept and stunning views over the Mediterranean Sea. Shops and restaurants within a 10 minute downhill walk. Cannes town and beach another 5 minutes further on. Ideal location for exploring the Cote De Azure. Highly recommended for couples.

Excellent apartment in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a week long stay, and what a great week it was. The apartment is excellent, with brilliant views, which we were able to enjoy over breakfast. With an enjoyable walk down the hill and along the coast to the centre of Cannes, the apartment is in an ideal location. The walk back up the hill takes a little more effort, but makes you feel better after your indulgences at the great restaurants in Cannes! Elisabeth, the owner, was brilliant. Always fast to reply to any messages sent, and provided a very useful document detailing nearest supermarkets/bakeries/restaurants etc. (Rue Hoche was an excellent recommendation!). Thanks for a great stay Elisabeth!

Amazing property and apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The building itself is one of the most beautiful in all of Cannes you feel like you're walking into a palace! We loved every minute of our stay here. The apartment is very large by European standards and was very well equipped. The view was amazing and Elizabeth was very helpful. We will definitely return in the future!

A magical apartment with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful apartment. Nestled up in the hills, we woke up every morning to the sun shining and birds chirping. The amenities were updated and clean: my favorite part was the beautifully designed shower! There was nothing like coming home from a long day of exploring to a nice, hot shower or bath.

It was nice to be able to stay outside of the festival area. It was about a 35 minute walk to the center, and was all downhill on the way there. I recommend using uber on the way home to save your feet, if you are wearing heels.

My only complaint is about the pillows: there were three to share between the two of us and they were too thin for my taste.

All in all, it was a wonderful, relaxing stay in a beautiful and historical building.
