Testimonials:

After 4 unforgettable weeks (they went too fast) we wish to thank you for your kindness and service in connection with the rent of the apartments. The apartment was really wonderful to live in, we enjoyed every single day in it and spent a lot of time on the balcony every morning and night with a fantastic wiew over the Mediterranean Sea and towards the mountains by the cozy town, Mandelieu. The location is perfect, we enjoyed to take a stroll through the town every morning, go to the local market and shop for groceries and enjoy a cup of coffee and try to experience the daily life of the french people. Furthermore it is nice that Cannes is within walking distance. We have enjoyed every single moment and we know that our children did too so there is also full satisfaction from their side. We shall be happy to come back in 2 years. Once again thanks.

Kind regards Dorrit og Bjorn, Roskilde, Denmark

A recommendation for guests who don't have a car available. We managed all our excursions using public transport. It went very well. From Nice airport by bus 200 to Cannes, change at Hotel de Ville to bus 1 or 2, get off at Mairie Annexe (opposite Ibis Hotel). Total price including transit 1€ . That is an unbeatable price especially by the current gazoline prices. Also excursions to Vence, Grasse, Antibes and elsewhere are trouble free to make. The tourist bureau in Cannes is very helpful in this respect.

Kind regards M. Geyer, Berlin

Hi, Thanks again for renting us the flat, everything went well and we had a great time there. All your information was good to have. For example we tried the African queen which was good. There were also plenty of good boulangeries and food shops around. Because we had the car we also went around the area. The pool was great, the area clean and good taken care of. Would definitely recommend this to others. View from balcony superb. While in the flat we spent most time on the balcony which was spacy and nice for all 4 of us.

regards

Thank you very much! Our holiday was just super! We enjoyed the time, the breakfast on the balcony with the sea view was perfect. The money paid for the underground parking was worth it, we never needed to worry if something would happen to our car. Cannes you can reach either by foot (around 25min along the beach) or by bus (around 10min.). The super markets, the market with fruits, fish, vegetables..I could reach within 5 min by foot. One can also go to Nice and Monaco (by highway against a toll of 12€ it takes less than 1 hour), you can take the longer road without tolls with the beautiful view spots. Under all circumstances we recommend to visit the Porphyr cliffs and Grand Canyon du Verdon.

Our suggestions:

Cannes la Bocca: daily market on the main road (5min by foot). Fruits: Mangos, pineapples, strawberries, melons... taste differently and smell so! Nice: the ice cream bar 'Fenocchio' on Place Rossetti - around 100 sorts of ice. Antibes: Marineland - even our 15 year old son who like many others at this age find everything boring was totally exited about Marineland. Monaco: Oceanographic Museum with the Restaurant at the top with a panoramic view over Monaco. Our son found the Museum very interesting too. This time we also saw the change of guards at the Palace in Monaco. That was great fun too. Not to forget: On sundays and holidays parking on the streets is free also in France (one can save a lot of money). In Monaco there are elevators everywhere that connect the lower part of the town with the upper part. When you use these you save a lot of time and energy. We hope that we can come back to Cannes and in that case we shall contact you. Again many thanks!

Hello, after the wonderful vacation with great weather, clean beach, warm sea and delicious food in Cannes we are now safe back at home. We found the apartment suitable to us, a really great Balcony with a superb view on the sea and the Esterel-mountains. Wow ! We really enjoyed our holiday. Railway and noise from neighbours was not a problem, the elevator did not disturb us at all, safety is super. The underground parking was surprisingly large so it was easy to park the car. The idea with a safe for the key is super! Again many thanks, perhaps it will work out that we can stay as guests in your apartment also next year. Many greetings and all the best, Robert

We found the location to be convenient and the apartment is comfortable and well provided for. I especially liked the orientation which means the balcony stays in shade until the afternoon so it is not too hot when we eat meals outside. The local supermarket and boulangerie are excellent and the quality of the fresh fruit and vegetables as good as a market. If you want the buzz of central Cannes, the block is just a €1 bus ride from the festival park, which was great for people watching. I think other guests might like to know where the bus stop is (outside the Ibis Hotel). We had a really good week and on the last day, we rented a car to drive to St Paul de Vence. The boys thought the lunch in Le Tilleul Restaurant was fantastic!

Many thanks

We were also very satisfied. Everything in our holiday worked out wonderfully. The weather was also on our side. A view out through the window was a dream. Best regards Jolanta Telenga

Thank you so much! The view from the apartment was sensational, everything practical and well-organised and your directions and advice perfect! I didn't believe that grieving for my father as I was, I could possibly enjoy myself as much as I did! In fact, I found myself able to grieve more freely and think more clearly while swimming or visiting beautiful places such as the gardens of Renoir's house at Cagnes. We loved the location, the sea, the pool, the ambiance - everything!It is so easy to visit so many lovely places and the little town and market are delightful. We can't make holiday plans for next year yet. If not for that, we wouldn't hesitate for a second to ask you to reserve the same apartment for the same weeks next year as we absolutely loved it!!!! Yet again, thank you so very much for a truly excellent holiday experience! I hope that your summer has been lovely too. All our very best wishes and many, many thanks, Anna and Robin Taylor.

Just back last night from two brilliant weeks in your apartment in Cannes.

I do not think there is anything you can say about apartment apart from FANTASTIC!!!!!!!

We hope that we will be able to visit again. In the not too distant future. We look forward to spending more time in your fantastic apartment hopefully next year.

Once again thank you very much

We would like to thank you again for letting the apartment in Cannes over Christmas 2007. Everything was okay and we enjoyed our stay and the wonderful view off the balcony while having our dinner, especially during meals since by these temperatures it was possible to eat outdoors also during December. We found what we expected from the description, the contact with the owner proved to be easy and sufficient. The site of the apartment in the MAEVA building was in walking distance to nearby shopping centers; the walk towards Cannes centre took about 20 min. along the seaside. Weather was fine, 13-14 degrees C and little wind. Ideal conditions for excursions and the holidays in the South of France will remain a vivid memory for a long time. The train to Monaco or Nice was a five-minute-walk away. We would recommend this accommodation to anyone who would love to explore La Côte d'Azur.

Frank Voss, Germany

“My family was most pleased with the accommodations and the equipment available. We had a wonderful time and would gladly return today. It was difficult to leave such a lovely view of the world. We travelled a bit, but minimally, since what could be better to see than to relax where we were? Thanks for your help. My mother was envious that she did not own a property in the building there as well. I will not hesitate to refer the apt to anyone who sees the photos or hears about our wonderful trip. Best regards, Marsha Kramarck“

We have just returned from Cannes and from our perspective everything worked smoothly. We did enjoy the view a great deal and in fact had every meal on the balcony. We found we did not need to use the fan as there was adequate ventilation and we were out all day anyways. We enjoyed visiting the bakery just north of the apartment and found all services such as groceries and restaurants to be very convenient. We frequently walked to and from Cannes (it took us about 25 minutes to the heart of the harbor) and found it to be a most pleasant walk by the sea. We tended to swim between the big rock outcroppings as they were scenic and the beach there was quite wide. We were impressed with the good sand and excellent water. Best wishes for a good year and if another trip to France is ever in our plans it will be comforting to know that we have contact with such a trustworthy and helpful person like you to contact regarding future accommodation. Sincerely Barry & Ingrid

Wonderful stay, spotless, great view

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed in one of David's 1-bedroom apartments in this complex for a week in March. The apartment was exactly as described and spotless. David provided very detailed instructions and recommendations prior to arrival and responded to all our emails quickly.

The view from the balcony was wonderful overlooking the sea and the complex's main pool. La Bocca is a residential area and is served by several main bus routes. You can even walk to the commercial center of Cannes and to the La Bocca train station. There are plenty of restaurants, corner stores (we used the Huit-a-Huit for breakfast and dinner basics), bakeries, and cafes.

I would definitely recommend this apartment and area.

Cannes la Bocca

  • 4 of 5

Solid and stylish building, good access 24 h, convenient garage downstairs, good apartment planning and balcony, good neighbourhood and services nearby, good transport connections, all basic suplies for living available.

Very good, quick and trustworthy communication and contracting, good instructions, everything available via internet.

Some advantages might be done for better TV (sometimes buzzing) and wifi internet connection.

Good holiday resort even in winter.

Thank you, we had a really good week and very much liked the

apartment. We found the location to be convenient and the apartment is comfortable and well provided for. I especially liked the orientation of 608 which means the balcony stays in shade until the afternoon so it is not too hot when we eat meals outside. The local supermarket and boulangerie are excellent and the quality of the fresh fruit and vegetables as good as a market. If you want the buzz of central Cannes, the block is just a €1 bus ride from the festival park, which was great for people watching.
