About Jim & Laurie Saunders

We live in France. I am from Nice, south of France and Jim is British. We lived in California for 8 years and Washington DC for 1 year. Jim travels to Europe and the US for business a lot, but our base is Valbonne in the South of France. (Check out Valbonne when you're here !!)

We have two children (young adults) age 18 and 21, both students. We always wanted an apartment in Cannes and this is a great spot that we use for friends or ourselves from time to time. Ideal location for a holiday as every fun part of the Cote d'Azur is right there, easy to reach, from Cannes. Ideal for longer term business stay too.

Jim & Laurie Saunders purchased this apartment in 2014

Large well furnished and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Well furnished and equipped apartment with comfortable seating and comfortable beds. Also of benefit, especially if you go in low season, it is “residential size” rather than just “holiday size” and very near restaurants and bars with two supermarkets not very far away.

The coast and beaches are right there, a few hundreds yards away. 200 meters to the beach front "Croisette" in Cannes where you will find public and private beaches. The summer fireworks are set off from there.


Airport is a 30 minutes taxi ride. The train can take you closer to the airport to catch a taxi. Buses leave downtown every 30 minutes to the airport.

Having a car is not essential in Cannes and to visit the surrounding area. The owner can help you with the best way to get transport to different locations.

If you do travel with a car, you may want to organise public parking ahead of time to save $$ (euros)!. Please check: interparking-france.com


Most lovely villages can be reached within a 20-40 minutes drive, train ride or bus:

e.g. Valbonne, near Grasse. Biot and the glass blowing company. St Paul de Vence, and Vence. Eze and Monte Carlo and the coastline from Monte Carlo to Nice is wonderful, through Beaulieu and Villefranche.

Further Details:

Downtown Cannes has the best shopping around the Cote d'Azur.

Local fresh produce markets are available a few steps away from the flat, but also grocery shopping with Mono'P and Monoprix (the owner will locate them for you). Most supermaket in Cannes will deliver your groceries to the flat for a small fee. The post office is in the street, 100 yards away, but also most large french/international banks are very near. Pharmacies and doctors are nearby. Our street is filled with restaurants and cafes and the atmosphere is amazing.
