About Joan Kennedy

I live in Ireland and purchased this property because of its South facing aspect, brightness, and close proximity to a beautiful sandy beach, many restaurants, shops, markets and train station.

We have guests coming for the 10th time this year.

They love it and so will you! Joan.

Joan Kennedy purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Joan Kennedy chose Centre Ville

This property is in a special place in the heart of Cannes, just around the corner from Rue de Antibes and one minute away from seven restaurants and Commodent Lamy Square.

Despite its central location it is very quiet and peaceful to sit on the sunny terrace, and is hidden away from all the street noises.

What makes this apartment unique

The unique benefit of this apartment is its brightness, sunny aspect and location in the centre of Cannes beside the beach and all amenities.

And the patio to die for..."

Well equipped apartment in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in June/July 2017. The apartment was clean and tidy when we arrived. All the equipment you need is there including clean towels and linen. It is ideally situated being within easy walking distance of the beach, the croisette, the shops and public transport. We did not need a car throughout or stay. The terrace is large enough to accommodate outdoor eating and relaxing.

Comfortable, clean quiet, convenient...

  • 5 of 5

The apartment, painted white, is a comfortable, clean, well-maintained one bedroom that's privately owned inside a hotel. There's a convertible couch in the living room, where my 6' daughter slept (she'd have been happier in a bed, of course), separated from the bedroom by a sliding door. A balcony runs along the width of the apartment, with table and chairs, backing onto a line of apartments that insure quiet. Bathroom and kitchen are well equipped, the wifi was responsive and trouble-free. I've stayed in many apartments all over Cannes, and this is near the top of my list for comfort, cleanliness, quietness and convenience.

simply the best

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed all along the south of france and can easily say this is the best apartment we have ever stayed in a real home from home.From the start when you get in touch with joan the reply is immediate.Then you are met by a lovely lady called val who runs you through everything you need to know about the apartment.

The apartment has a compact kitchen but everything you require is there.The bathroom has a bath with a shower in it and has a washing machine if needed.The living room and bedroom both look on to a fabulous south facing balcony which is superb for having breakfast and when you come in it is ideal to relax with a drink.You are 10 mins from train station 5 mins from the beach and you are in the mix of all the shops.The apartment is situated in a hotel so you have the peace of mind with 24 hour security. .I would recommend this apartment to anybody and when our flights come out for next year we will be booking it again.

Hidden gem of an apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is just what we needed. Located close enough to the beach, shops and restaurants, yet very peaceful. The large terrace is a wonderful place to relax after a long day on the beach or shops, and the rooftop views and jacuzzi were also very welcoming.

We were welcomed by the host Valerie, who was very helpful and knowledgable about the local facilities available, and the apartment was very well maintained, with all the facilities we needed - including a lift to the 5th floor itself.

We would certainly recommend the apartment to friends and family of all ages and have already planned to return for a longer holiday next year. We can`t wait!

Great apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spacious and light apartment on top of the shopping streets and a short walk to the beach. You also have the supermarket very close by so there is no need for a car. The roof terrace is a lovely treat after a nice day at the beach. We would stay here again. Thank you

Cannes is an all year round holiday destination. It is home to the famous Film Festival and its many glamorous visitors. It is close to tourist sites such as St Paul De Vance, Eze with its spectacular views, Ville France, Menton, Mougins, the perfume city of Grasse and the principality of Monaco. It`s not by chance that the Great and Good of this world have since the mid 18th century chose Cannes as their holiday resort. What other city can offer, all year round such beautiful light, such lush vegetation, such a mild climate, air perfumed with a thousand fragrances. The Romans settled in Cannes, Napolean admired it on his return from Elba and Lord Brougham, former Chancellor of England built a magnificent residence there. Millionaires, artists, writers and poets have confirmed its reputation. The warmth of its welcome and its Provencal roots make it a perfect holiday destination.

Other Activities: designer shopping, air tourism at Mandelieu airport 4 km and easy train access to Antibes etc.
