Mary purchased this apartment in 2003
Why Mary chose Cannes
The apartment is ideally located to explore the French Riviera. Cannes is famous for its shopping, its festivals and its beaches. You can decide to hire a car if you wish and use this as your base, but equally Cannes is very well served with public transport and the apartment is located 5 minutes from the local train station/Gare. The bus system is also very good and inexpensive.
What makes this apartment unique
The lovely high ceilings give a great sense of space...the bedrooms are to the back of the building where all is quiet at night. Also this street itself is quiet: there are no bars or restaurants on this street. Yet you are just off the Rue d'Antibes and so close to the beaches!! You just walk out the front door and you are in the centre of the action! You can walk down to the Croisette at night and watch the world go by.....people watching is a favourite activity of many visitors!!

Our stay in Cannes was amazing. The apartment is just beautiful. The beds were super comfortable. The sofas just as comfy. Having two bathrooms was such a plus for us. The kitchen had all the basics plus some more. The location is fantastic. Everything we needed (wanted) was just a few steps away. Mary provided us with a detailed list of suggestions for sight seeing, restaurants, markets, grocery stores, and more. Each was exactly as she described. We could not have been more pleased with the restaurants she suggested. We so appreciate all the time that she put into making our stay pleasurable. We would definitely return to, as well as recommend this apartment. It was absolutely perfect!
Beautiful traditional apartment
We had a wonderful 4 night stay.
The apartment was "spotlessly clean!" Beautifully decorated, and also had the typically French features, high ceiling, shutter ect.
In an ideal location near supermarche, beach, train station, lovely traditional bars and restaurants.
We felt very safe and secure staying there, lovely area.
Marie the key holder was so helpful too! Was on hand via phone if we needed her!
We will definitely be coming back to stay, couldn't fault it!
Petit trésor de Cannes
Nous y avons séjourné 16 jours lors du festival du film en mai 2016.
Situé tout près du cinéma de la quinzaine et à 10 minutes de marche de la croisette, cet appartement est un petit bijou.
Même en étant près de la rue d'Antibes, tout y est calme.
Spacieux, bien équipé pour cuisiner, a proximité de restaurants et du marché matinal.
Marie nous y a accueilli et a été toujours présente pour répondre à nos questions.
Nous n'hésitons pas à recommander cette location et espérons pouvoir y séjourner à nouveau.

Outstanding Property in Great Location
This is a great property in a charming old building. The location is perfect right off the Rue d'Antbes and only a few blocks from the beach, and the apartment is nicely decorated with all the amenities.
Absolutely Wonderful Apartment
My husband and I stayed in this apartment in May for seven days. Couldn't have asked for better accommodation. Location perfect with shops, restaurants and bars on doorstep and the beach only a 5 minute walk. Apartment is extremely bright and spacious and very comfortably furnished. We had a wonderful holiday in Cannes its such a beautiful city and the icing on the cake was to return to the comfort of the apartment in the evening after a day at the beach or after travelling to other destinations nearby which are easily accessible on the public train transport system. I would highly recommend this apartment to family or friends without hesitation.
