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. 100 meters (2 minute) from the Boulevard de La Croisette (the famous seafront promenade) and a 5-10 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.
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 Rancho Mirage (Palm Springs are of California) Cape Coral, Florida andSan Francisco.
Judy and Hakan (Swedish) Hervall purchased this apartment in 2004
Our Nice apartment was our very first 'second' home. Cannes came closely after. Then we bought in San Francisco (we live 30 minutes North of the city but love spending time there) then Cape Coral, FL and finally in 2015 Rancho Mirage on a golf course (I guess we are getting older and not just the kids!?) 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. We hope you will feel like you are "home".
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.
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".)
The situation of the appartement is perfect! Near everything, very secure, very design!
We love Cannes, especially from Commandant André, Jean-Luc Pelé's coffee and bread, all the shops on Antibes street, rue de Meynadier for the cheeses and candy! A quick walk to the train, croisette, everything!
If youre on the Cannes beat its fine, restaurant and bars very close, beware the 5euros coffee on the corner pizzeria, tourist trap... But, le bistro bobo is very good! Excellent service!
We had a great vacation!
If youre sleep is fragile, the bed is wonderful!!!
This small apartment has everything you need, and gave my wife and I enough privacy from our tween girls as well! It is perfectly located, right in the middle of the action and five minutes walk from a public beach - so if you WANT to pay 30 Euro for a beach chair you can, but if you prefer to throw down a towel and jump in the Med that is an option. Great restaurants, open air market, small grocery, it is all right there. We would gladly stay here again!
Have to agree with all the other reviews - location, location, location. We stayed for a week and absolutely loved it - walk along the beach, walk to the old town, restaurants and shopping galore. And when we weren't enjoying wonderful Cannes, we did day trips to Italy, Monaco and the Provence wine region. Our last day we took the ferry over to Marguerite Island for a picnic lunch and polish off all our leftover cheeses, meets, baguettes and of course, WINE!
We stayed a week at this wonderful apartment in Cannes. The location was absolutely perfect! We were close to the beach and could rent chairs and umbrellas-it was a great beach. We were right in the middle of great restaurants and shopping-the shopping was fantastic because we were able to shop reasonably as well as find a few special high end pieces. It was also a great place to take day tours from-very easy to get to the train station as well as have private tours pick us up. The owners were fantastic to work with. We would definitely come back again.
I have stayed at this apartment twice now and will continue to do so when traveling to Cannes! The apartment has always been very clean upon arrival, including a small arrival kit that can come in handy.
The rooms are spacious and there two separate shower/sink areas in each, which is very helpful while sharing the space. There are large, updated windows that keep it very bright. The apartment itself is situated extremely close to the Croisette and Rue D'Antibes. It was a pleasure to deal with the caretaker upon arrival! I would highly recommend staying here!
Judy's flat is great: very central, well furbished, spacious and with small details that make all the difference, such as plug adaptors for US and international plugs into French/ European etc. I strongly recommend it!
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.
