Overview

Centre-ville - Croisette Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Loft + Office, 1.25 Baths, Sleeps 2-4

Location! Location! Location!

This Cannes Vacation Rental apartment has the best of everything. Totally remodeled and oh so stylish and in the very best location possible. 30 meters from the Boulevard de La Croisette (the famous seafront promenade) and a five minute walk to The Palais des Festivals et des Congrès where you can attend International Boat Show, MIPCOM, TAX FREE, GARTNER, MAPIC, Mare di Moda, International Luxury Travel Market, MIDEM, MIPIM, MIPTV, MILIA, Cannes Film Festival, and Advertising Lions Festival.

This apartment will absolutely feel like home. You have almost every kitchen utensil you have at home and all the dishes and glasses you could possibly need. The owners take great pride in keeping the apartment clean and well furnished for their guests. We stay here 2-3 times per year and make sure it is constantly updated for our guests. This is not your average rental!

There are two large double French doors (one from the living room and one from the bedroom) that open up to Rue Commandant Andre. It is not unusual to be serenaded by wonderful music during the dinner hour and during the summer there is often lots of music. Close them (and the shutters) at night and the sound and light is a distant memory.

There are two air conditioners (one for the main living area and one for the master bedroom (comfy queen bed) which has its own private shower). Air Conditioning during the summer in Cannes is a MUST and we have two extremely effective units that will keep you comfy and cool.

The loft upstairs has a fold out futon (with a very thick comfortable mattress.) and its own full-size bathtub/shower and sink. The WC (toilet) is downstairs off the living room. There is also an office/desk area to work from. YES there is WIFI available but please request it in advance. The cost is only E10/day extra and includes free calls to USA/Canada and Western Europe.

Shopping, Shopping, Shopping!: Oh dear! The shopping is right outside of your door. Rue D'Antibes (the main shopping street) is 10 meters (seconds!) away and then of course you have La Croisette and all of the stores that will eat your credit card for a snack. If you can't buy - it sure is fun to shop.

There is a sandy beach here! Topless bathing is not as common these days but it does still exist of course - this is the French Rivera after all! Step out of your apartment and you are immediately in the middle of action with restaurants all around you, shopping (some of the best in all of Europe!) to your left and to your right. Walk out in your swimsuit and turn left and in less then 5 minutes you are strolling the promenade known as La Croisette. There are beautiful beaches (some public some private so if you like pay about E20 each and get a comfy chair for the day as well as drink orders taken beach side).

Absolutely no car is needed as the public transport is amazingly convenient and easy to use. And it's inexpensive too!

This is a very popular location to those 'in the know.' Now, you can rent our second home directly from us.

This is a great base for day trips as the train/bus stations are so close by. Just pop out to the train and visit Monaco, Eze, Nice, Antibes, and many other amazaing locations for the day.

About Owner/Manager

We are a family living in the San Francisco Bay Area who LOVE the south of France. We own this apartment as well as one in Nice. We visit often and what this means to you is that we take great care in the furnishings of the apartment to make sure they are updated, clean and complete. Our family is getting older (at least the kids are) so we hope to come here more and more often. We also own vacation homes in Cape Coral and an apartment in San Francisco.

Owner/Manager purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Owner/Manager chose Centre-ville - Croisette

Our Nice apartment was our very first 'second' home. Cannes came closely after. Then we bought in San Francisco and finally Cape Coral, FL. We take great pride in furnishing these homes in a way that you won't miss a thing and be so happy with your decision to stay in our apartment instead of a hotel.

What makes this apartment unique

The location made us purchase this home. The attention to the design, the 'real french' feel of the building the proximity to everything and the fact it was totally remodeled are the things that we always look for and could not believe we found it here! A designer lived and designed this flat from the "studs" of the apartment and you can tell. It is very stylish, amazing use of every square inch as well as being fun and colorful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We visit this flat two or three times per year. We are in our 80's and while it is on the first floor (one flight up) we do not find it a difficult ascent on a daily basis (though we do ask the caretaker to assist with our luggage and pay her a bit for her help).



We walk to the oceanfront (60 seconds) and sit there and work our crossword puzzles, people watch and just enjoy the sun and the beautiful view. Lots of nice restaurants nearby, markets, boulangerie, grocery, etc.



If you want to be able to walk to your daily activities this is a great location. We also walk to the train station and take the train for day trips to NIce when we want. As we get older we find we just stay in Cannes as it has everything we want but when younger we took the train many places as well as the ferry to the islands.



(Dictated to owner for review as "we aren't very tech savvy".)

Wonderful Flat in Cannes

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our time here! Fun, tastefully decorated apartment right in the heart of Cannes. Pictures are very accurate. Anything one could possibly want or need is in apartment. Location is just a few short blocks to train or bus; and two blocks to water (look left out of windows and it's right there!). Quite close to Film Festival location...and excellent shopping nearby. We walked all over....Old Town is not far. Owner has large binder of suggestions for restaurants, bars, shopping, day trips, activities. We were very impressed--and hope to return!

Owner's Response: Dear Julie and Greg, We are so thrilled you enjoyed your stay in Cannes. It holds some wonderful memories for us and it is wonderful to know others are making memories there as well! I'm glad you found everything you needed and that you enjoyed Old Town as well as the water and shopping. Welcome back!! Judy Hervall

Perfect location, spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Cannes and we split our time between Judy's apartment in Cannes and in Nice. The apartment in Cannes is spacious, bright, comfortable, thoughtfully decorated, and centrally located to restaurants, shopping areas, outdoor markets, and transportation. We attended a symphony concert, had a three hour lunch on the beach, and learned to promenade on the Rue de Croisette. Johana, the caretaker, welcomed us to the apartment and answered all of our questions. Cannes in November is lovely, and splitting one's stay between Nice and Cannes is ideal.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Peter and Joyce. So glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to stay in both Nice and Cannes. We really enjoy splitting our time between the two and am ao happy when others are able to do so too. Hopefully you can enjoy the South of France again soon!! Thanks so much for choosing our apartments and your kind review. Judy and Håkan

Great condo in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this beautiful condo was the perfect way to end our 25 day European holiday. We were greeted by Johna with a warm welcome. She helped us up the steps with our luggage and showed us all that we needed to know about the condo and the surrounding area. The apartment was tastfully decorated, well equipped and perfectly clean. It is located in the heart of Cannes, a short walking distance to great restaurants, fantastic shoppes, the beach promenade with it's famous hotels, the convention center and the boat, bus and train stations. Each morning we walked to the pastry shop and the outdoor market to pick up breakfast. Each day we toured the lovely towns nearby. We parked in the residential area north of the train station and enjoyed the 15 minute walk back to the condo. We have already recommended this lovely condo our friends and family. Thank you Judy for sharing your place with us.

I spent a week in Cannes, France during my son's spring break in March 2013. It was one of the best vacation I've ever had. We traveled to Monaco, Nice, and Marselle by train during our stay and experienced some of the best local cuisine and sightseeing. I highly recommend Cannes, France as your next vacation spot. The apartment was in the middle of the city easy walk from train and bus stations. It is only a block away from the beach and a few blocks away from just about all the major attractions.

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cute apartment located in the most awesome area! We were greeted by the caretaker who was very helpful in explaining the details of the apartment. We found it to be a very clean, well stocked, and comfortable place. It is obvious that the owners take great care in making sure the property is well-kept. I loved the location which is smack-dab in the middle of the shopping/restaurant district of Cannes - plus only about 5 blocks to the train station. I cannot wait to return with friends - and my husband already mentioned another trip with family (he does not normally do that!).

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We do hope to welcome you back another time! We do take pride in keeping the apartment neat, clean and well-stocked and it is so nice when that is noticed and appreciated. But of course none of it would matter without a great location and we are so happy you find it so convenient for everything. As always, we do ask that our guests let us know if they found anything at all missing or an idea that would be a great addition to the comfort and success of their stay. This feedback helps us to keep things up to date. Thanks again for such positive comments!

enjoyed Cannes from here

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time in Cannes, and the apartment certainly was a big part of that. The beach was minutes away and we were in easy walking distance of everything - terrific restaurants, walks to and beside the water, shopping, etc. We were greeted by the caretaker after walking from the train station. She had everything ready - including a bottle of wine in the fridge! The apartment is nicely decorated and well appointment - there was never anything we couldn't find. Our only minor issue was that the door lock was tempermental at times - a minor frustration.

Car: not necessary

On famous Rue Commandant Andre. Exciting Location! Cannes. There are hundreds of restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk. Shopping at it's best! All of the top notch designers on the Croisette and all of the great shopping you find on Rue d'Antibes and we are smack in the middle of those two (a 2 minute walk to either). Great for families with teenagers and great for honeymooners too! Our parents LOVE to come here and they are in their 80's. There is a one flight walk up so that may limit some elderly. We, as owners, stay here at least 2-3 times per year so everything is constantly replaced, updated and repaired as needed. This is not your average rental but truly a second home.

Other Activities: Shopping, para-sailing, boating, touring, wine tasting, people watching (and my husband's personal favorite) car watching, fireworks many weekends in the summer during a competition, beach concerts, ferry to St. Tropez, train to Paris in just a few hours, make your own perfume in Grasse, walk the ancient village of Eze on your way to visit Monaco. Too many to count. Don't forget Antibes and a glass of absinthe where Picasso used to drink it and visit his home, now a museum. And Nice is of course a must visit only 40 minutes by train.

Ski: Isola 2000 is really wonderful. Leave Sunny Cannes and be on the slopes in a matter of 2-3 hours.
