ENJOY BEST OF CANNES – CLOSE TO EVERYTHING BUT AWAY FROM IT ALL

Californie Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1.5 baths that sleeps 2; plus swimming pool & garden

Villa Charlotte is located in a peaceful area of upscale residences, just a 20-minute walk from the center of Cannes. Inviting and fresh, the stylish apartment offers one bedroom and a combined living area, both opening to private patios and gardens. Facing south and west, the apartment features lovely garden views and wonderful light. A bedroom with queen bed looks outdoors to a classical statue, cypress trees and shaded seating area. The living space includes a fully-equipped kitchen and comfortable areas for sitting and dining. Beyond is a patio where outdoor furniture and large planter with lemon tree and roses encourage al fresco living. The surrounding grounds, green and lush, feature an infinity-edge swimming pool and Mediterranean gardens with flowers, trees and birds. Close to all of Cannes’ excitement, but a secluded oasis to refresh and relax, the apartment is a perfect pied-à-terre to enjoy Cannes, Nice and the stunning Côte d’Azur – with easy access to Provence and Italy.

More about the Apartment: The open living space includes a compact, complete kitchen and comfortable dining and sitting areas. The Italian-design kitchen features top-of-the-line Siemens and Bosch appliances, including refrigerator/freezer, oven, induction cook-top, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer combination. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, glasses, cutlery, knives, pots, pans, cooking utensils, toaster and more. The gracious living area also features a dining table for four, Bo Concept leather sofa, comfortable chairs, entertainment center with 26” (68 cm) flat-screen Sony TV, DVD and original artwork. The living space continues al fresco. Sliding glass doors open to the private patio with table, four chairs and a large jardinière with lemon tree, roses, lavender and more. The two terraces are connected by a large, private garden area with grass, a small palm tree and other Mediterranean plantings. The apartment faces south and west, the preferred exposures, and has air-conditioning.

More about Villa Charlotte: Villa Charlotte is a small, gated residence in a tranquil area of Cannes called Oxford, known for its Belle Epoque villas and other high-quality properties. The property is named after Queen Victoria’s granddaughter, born Charlotte of Prussia. She and husband Prince Bernhard of Saxe-Meiningen were former owners, and Charlotte created delightful gardens on its grounds. More recently, the property housed a mid-century hotel. This was taken down to its concrete walls and rebuilt in 2008 to become today’s Villa Charlotte.

Amenities at Villa Charlotte include a large swimming area with inviting infinity-edge pool, wading pool, gated entry and a dedicated parking space for the apartment. Spacious communal gardens feature an iron gazebo, marble bench and flowers. Phoenix palms, cypresses and nettle trees shade ornamental lemon trees, flowers and greenery in a lush and cool haven. The property’s peace and serenity provide a perfect contrast to the hustle & bustle found in Cannes’ center.

More about the Area: Cannes is a charming city renowned for its film festival at the Palais des Festivals on La Croisette. In the nearby port are stunning yachts from around the world. Across the street is Allée de la Liberté, where markets of flowers or antiques start each day. Overlooking the sea and white-sand beaches, La Croisette on one side is a place to stroll along a wide promenade. The other side is for indulgence – at elegant shops like Louis Vuitton, Cartier and Prada – or relaxation at sidewalk cafes. Along nearby Rue d’Antibes, shops are plentiful but less dear. The old town of Le Suquet beckons with delectable dining.

Villa Charlotte is a 15- or 20-minute walk from Cannes’ center. On the way is the train station, with easy access east to Antibes, Nice, Monaco and Italy. Aix-en-Provence and Marseille are west. Buses to town center are just steps from Villa Charlotte. Shops, restaurants, grocery stores and a boulangerie are nearby. The sea is 800 meters away. Nice Airport is 20 kilometers.

GREAT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This lovely apartment was exactly what was portrayed on the website. It was clean, well maintained and nicely decorated. We were there around 2 weeks and were very comfortable. The owners were very attentive and eager for us to have a nice stay. The location can't be beat, if you want to get away from the center of town. There is a bus stop right at the end of the street, which we used a lot to get there. The walk is nice, though, too. We had a little trouble with the foreign appliances, but figured it out in time. The washer dryer is located under the sink in cabinet, and it took us a little time to find. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting the area.

A TERRIFIC SUMMER

  • 5 of 5
I’d first like to say that I agree with all of the other reviews here and rather than repeat their points, I’ll try to add some additional info. My wife and I spent 12 weeks at Villa Charlotte in May, June, and July of 2012. We found it to be both a great place to relax at on its own and also a good base for exploring the surrounding areas. I also found it to be an easy place to work from full time using the wifi provided. We took day trips to Ile Sainte Marguerite and St. Tropez by ferry, Grasse and all parts of Cannes by bus, and Monaco, Villefranche-sur-Mer, Nice, Eze, St. Paul de Vence, Haute de Cagnes, Biot, Antibes, and more by train and/or bus when necessary. Most can easily be reached by car as well if you have one, but we were able to make it to all without one. This will require a decent bit of walking unless you can time the buses just right from the apartment or train station, but we welcomed the exercise to walk into town to the train station or port, (or just to the beach in Cannes). We rented a car only once during our stay, and used that opportunity to explore further into Provence, with stops at Fontaine de Vaucluse, St. Remy, Les Baux, Arles, Avignon, and more. The only other extended trip we took was over to Corsica (Calvi a must visit!) by way of a car ferry from Nice. If you have at least 3-4 days to spend away from Cannes, I’d highly recommend either trip, but any of the other day trips mentioned can be enjoyed in just a half a day, so 2 or 3 or more can be accomplished in one full day with proper planning. Also some quick restaurant recommendations for Cannes – The Cocoon Lounge and Le Square on the nearby Carnot (main street leading into Cannes) are not all that special foodwise, but the staff at both is extremely friendly and they are great places to grab a café or a drink and chat with locals. Further up the hill away toward Le Cannet is Bistro des Anges, which is well worth a try if you want to treat yourself. La Guerite on Ile Sainte Marguerite is also a great treat, but you can also just pick up a couple of baguette sandwiches and find yourself a private cove for a much cheaper option to enjoy the nearby island. La Boheme in downtown Cannes was our other go to. Not much really spectacular here, but we found all of the basics executed here very well at relatively modest prices compared to the nearby restaurants that could charge you twice as much for half the quality. All in all it was an amazing time!

LONG WEEKEND CANNES

  • 5 of 5
No need to repeat the other reviews because they tell the truth. The apartment is even better than the pictures show, amazing pool, secluded parking, fenced property, airco, 2 terraces, clean, Wi-Fi. We prefer a shower over a bath(but thats's personal), missed a second lounge chair on the terrace(guess who's always in it), we advice a car, we used to go in a hotel in Cannes but considering do it this way again. Lovely, friendly, helpfull lady who welcomes you at arrival.
The owners: same story. We will recomment this to friends.

OUR STAY DURING THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I feel like we had our second honeymoon at Villa Charlotte. Even though I was there for work, every night I would come home would feel like we were in a romantic secluded french villa. The condo is absolutely amazing!! It was clean (recently remodeled), convenient, and away from the madness of Cannes. It was everything we had hoped for and more. We had great romantic dinners on the private patio and then then coffee out there in the mornings. The gardens are incredible, the layout of the unit is great and it was perfect that it had a parking spot for our rental car. We had amazing meals in Mougins and in Villefrance sur mer, it was absolutely magical. Thank you so much, we will highly recommend your flat to other friends when they go to Cannes and we'll of course keep your Villa in mind for subsequent visits.

OUR HONEYMOON WAS PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We spent our honeymoon in Vila Charlotte and it was fantastic! Apartment is designed with very good taste and has everything you might need during vacation. Terraces are perfect for private sunbathing and meals on fresh air :)
Villa itself is within walking distance to major Cannes sites and at the same time has great territory with beautiful garden and pool. This turned out to be SO important, as beaches are not of the best quality and most apartments in the center have no private territory at all...
We definitely will come back to Cannes and stay at Villa Charlotte. Thanks a lot!

And a little advice for those who will stay there - if you want to go to Antibes, Nice, Monaco or other place in Cote D'Azur - use boat trips. It is about 10 EUR and you won't be stuck in traffic and will have no parking problems :)

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed two weeks, end of June, beginning of July, when the temperature reached 35 Celsius and more. Appartment has central A/C which was highly appreciated. The place is exactly like the pictures on the website, beautiful, with all you need to feel at home: space, amenities, decoration. We like to cook and, for the first time, we did not have to buy any utensils or cookware, we had all we need in the kitchen. On our arrival, Mrs Anderson welcomed us and explained everything we had to know. She was very nice.

We would recommend the place without any hesitation.

Villa Charlotte combines the best of what Cannes has to offer – it’s close to all the energy and excitement, but enclosed in its own private oasis. The gated residence is located in the tranquil Oxford area, known for its Belle Epoque villas. The property’s illustrious former owners include Prince Bernhard of Saxe-Meiningen and his wife, born Charlotte of Prussia, granddaughter of Queen Victoria. A great lover of flowers, Charlotte added rare plants to the grounds, creating enchanting gardens that still remain. In 2008 a new, modern luxury residence named in Charlotte’s honor was rebuilt, with just 24 condominiums. Villa Charlotte is a 20-minute walk from Cannes’ center. On the way is the train station, with easy access east to Antibes, Nice, Monaco and Italy. Aix-en-Provence and Marseille are west. Buses to town center are just steps from Villa Charlotte. Shops, restaurants, grocery stores and a boulangerie are nearby. The sea is less than 2 kilometers. Nice Airport is 20 km.
