About Barbara Roberts
Our daughter was at Aix en Provence University and then worked along the Riviera coast for some time. She kept returning to Cannes and we soon got to know and love it as much as she did! It of course has a reputation for glitz and glamour during the Film Festival but it is also a normal working town which means there is something going on all the year round whereas many other locations along the Cote d'Azur can be closed and quiet in the off season. There is always something to see, from the sea front, to the harbour, the old town and the markets, not to mention the wonderful shops in the town centre. You can relax or not as the mood takes you and there are always people enjoying the pleasures of Cannes and we love to join them!
Barbara Roberts purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Barbara Roberts chose Cannes City Centre
Knowing Cannes so well, we were happy to wait until the right apartment in the right place became available and we have never regretted the wait! We now have what we think is the perfect location for beach, shops and station, a sunny balcony, big windows and lovely old shutters throughout, making it bright, sunny and airy inside. All the bedrooms are on the back of the apartment overlooking the courtyard at the rear and therefore nice and quiet and our main living room overlooks the rue Hoche and has one set of large windows and also a set of large french windows on to the balcony so a sunny room in which to relax or dine!
What makes this Apartment unique
We can be on the beach in a few minutes, have everything we need on the doorstep and easy access to the railway station and buses. We love walking and are spoilt for choice in Cannes, with the Croisette, the harbour, the old town and plenty more accessible via the railway, which must be one of the most scenic in France. It is so easy to visit the other resorts along the Cote d'Azur from Cannes and having no need for a car is certainly a bonus here.

Very clean, fantastic location and nicely decorated.
From the point at which we booked this accommodation, the owner was very helpful with any questions we had and remained in communication throughout our stay if we needed anything. The actual location of the apartment is perfect, with nice restaurants and bars in striking distance and 5 minutes away from the promenade and two supermarkets nearby. The little balcony provides a good view of the street and it was nice to sit out in and enjoy the fresh pastries from the nearby bakery. Overall, I would recommend this apartment and am already thinking about my next stay!
Beautiful and clean apartment in a wonderful location.
Beautiful 3 bedroomed apartment on one of the coolest streets in Cannes. Great balcony to watch the world go by plus restaurants within a few paces. Well equipped and clean. Perfect for our young family. We walked 5 mins to the beach every day. Owner very accommodating and helpful. Terrific holiday.
Fabulous apartment in a superb position to explore the best of Cannes!
A lovely apartment, surrounded by many restaurants. Opposite the apartment you can walk less than 5 steps to a choice of cafes opposite where you can enjoy breakfast and an espresso coffee to set you up for the morning to explore the many shops all within a few minutes walk. The monoprix supermarket is at the end of the road so you can easily pick up all you need on a daily basis. The beach is also within easy walking distance and the availability of parasols and beach chairs in the apartment allows you to enjoy the beach in comfort. The old town and castle are also close enough to walk for a lovely view of the coast and a wander around the cobbled streets. The apartment is clean and spacious with good air con. There is a balcony at the front where you can enjoy a glass of rosé and watch the hive of activity below. We would highly recommend a stay here!
. The apartment was really lovely, and in such a perfect location with beach, restaurants, supermarket, and transport right on the doorstep. Veronique was there as we arrived and was very helpful. It was so convenient to only have a 2 minute walk when I arrived in Cannes by train, and there are buses too from the station - went to La Napoule one day for a walk along the coastal path, and took the bus direct to Nice airport when I left. Everything was just right for a very relaxing stay.
Perfect pedestrian location, yet only a couple of streets back from the Croisette.
The location is perfect for a stay in downtown Cannes. V.convenient for the station'bus terminus, and for the supermarket, so ideal for self-catering. Apartment is ample size for five people, possibly a squeeze for six. All mod cons, including AirCon which is essential in August. Even a balcony to do a bit of people-watching.
Some marvelous bistros nearby. A shortish walk west of the marina takes you to the stretch of really good beaches - clean and a joy to use.
In short . . . we all had a lovely week of R&R.
The apartment is on the first floor and has a lovely front balcony which overlooks the pretty rue Hoche, a newly renovated and pedestrianised street midway between the seafront and the train station, just a couple of minutes’ walk to both. Cafes, boutiques, tea shops and newly planted trees give the street a very French relaxed feel. The rue d’Antibes, the main shopping street, is between the apartment and the beach, and the old town, Le Suquet, which is full of atmosphere and has many restaurants in it's twisty cobbled streets, is a 5 or 10 minute stroll away. Supermarkets, outdoor markets, all categories of shops, bars and cafes are all very close by but by no means 'in your face'. Down near the harbour are boules areas...and there is a set usually left in the apartment. In this area on Sunday mornings there is an antiques market, as there is also at the Marche Fourville on Mondays, instead of the usual fruit and vegetables. The produce there is an enormous photo-opportunity so do visit there even if you don't want to buy! Actually food shopping is one of the highlights in Cannes, because it has such splendid fresh produce at the markets, some amazing delicatessens and supermarkets. Just gazing in the windows of the delis and the cake shops is a wonder in itself!
When you first arrive, the sandy beach and a stroll along the Croisette is a first priority. Then a visit to the beautiful old Town to see the panoramic views of Cannes and the bay from the church at the top. You can also walk along the seafront in both directions as far as your legs can take you. The train station is only a couple of minutes walk away and the trains are efficient and not expensive. They also allow you to get on and off on the way to your destination so this makes for super days out, especially as it must be one of the most scenic train tracks in the world. Little known is that there are two islands in the bay of Cannes and ferry boats run to them from the harbour. They are great for walking, relaxing or visiting the monastery there. Grasse, an inland small town and the centre of the perfumery industry, is a short train journey inland and again a scenic ride and well worth a visit. In spite of the common belief that the French Riviera is all developed, there are too many scenic walks for me to mention here, both coastal, river and mountain, including foothills.
