More About Cannes

Cannes holiday apartments in the form of opulent villas, many inspired by Roman castles are now a historical feature of one of the best known cities on the French Riviera after the area first became widely popular in the early 1800s. Today however, these buildings are popular tourist attractions, and not suitable for accommodating visitors to Cannes. As the playground of the rich and famous, many villas in Cannes are fabulously furnished and have all the amenities you would want during your holiday, giving you and your guests the opportunity to kick back and relax after a strenuous day on the beach, or exploring this fascinating coastal town.

Beaches

Cannes is a popular destination along the south coast due to its many beaches. There are public beaches and private beaches to choose from, both of which cater for a family day out and for those looking for a quiet spot in the sun. There is usually a small charge for the private beaches, but it does guarantee access to the beach all day, together with a chaise longue, parasol, access to fresh water showers, as well as restaurants that are beach-attire friendly. The best free beaches to visit are considered to be the Plage du Midi or the Plage Gazagnaire.

The 2km stretch runs alongside the coast, so on one side you always have a splendid view of the azure blue sea, whilst on the other you’ll see the who’s who of boutique fashion brands and some of the world’s most opulent hotels.
