We had been holidaying in the French Riviera for many years and finally decided to purchase our own and to let others enjoy our local knowledge! We provide detailed insights into local attractions, places to go, recommended restaurants, and our local keyholder makes settling in very easy.
Mary purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Mary chose Californie Pézou
The apartment is ideally located to explore the French Riviera. Cannes is famous for its shopping, its festivals and its beaches. You can decide to hire a car if you wish and use this as your base, but equally Cannes is very well served with public transport and the apartment is located 5 minutes from the local train station/Gare. The bus system is also very good and inexpensive (€1.50 gets you a single trip to almost anywhere).
What makes this Apartment unique
The lovely high ceilings give a great sense of space...the bedrooms are to the back of the building where all is quiet at night. Also this street itself is quiet: there are no bars or restaurants on this street. Yet you are just off the Rue d'Antibes and so close to the beaches!! You just walk out the front door and you are in the centre of the action! You can walk down to the Croisette at night and watch the world go by.....people watching is a favourite activity of many visitors!!

Extremely comfortable, French style apartment with contemporary touches in a superb location.
Myself and my husband and 2 children stayed in this fabulous apartment for 2 weeks in July. This spacious apartment is extremely comfortable and had a contemporary kitchen and bathrooms. The French decor was impressive and the couches and beds were extremely comfortable - a lovely place to relax after a day sightseeing or at the beach. The location is superb - is less than 5 minutes walk to the markets and shops and 10 minutes to the beach. The immediate area is very chic. Mary, the property owner was extremely helpful and gave us invaluable advice reagarding day trips and restaurants. Marie, the key holder, was extremely accommodating regarding check in and check out and shared some invaluable local knowledge with us.
So delighted you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you all back again!!
Pretty nice but noisy
I try to make sure places we stay are quiet but this place was a nightmare of sound from early morning, 7:45 or 8 am. Will not stay there again.
I am sorry that the construction noises from the adjacent building interfered with your stay. As you can imagine, we have no control over when people carry out refurbishment works. The law in Cannes allows such works take place from 8 am to 6 pm and these works conformed to this law so there was nothing I could do.
It is most unfortunate that the owners choose to carry out these works in high season.
Neither had I any control over the British Airways computer failure which left you stranded in Nice airport with nowhere to stay and yet I provided accommodation for you at no cost to you.
I sincerely apologise for the upset caused to you by the construction works, which have now been completed, as I write this from the apartment, which is now quiet again.
Fantastically located apartment
Lovely property in a great location in Cannes, just off from the Rue D'Antibes. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a nice size living and eating area. The host was very helpful and easy to contact and she also helped us arrange pick up and drop off from the airport. Apartment has wifi and a/c all easy to use. Would definitely stay there again.
Our stay in Cannes was amazing. The apartment is just beautiful. The beds were super comfortable. The sofas just as comfy. Having two bathrooms was such a plus for us. The kitchen had all the basics plus some more. The location is fantastic. Everything we needed (wanted) was just a few steps away. Mary provided us with a detailed list of suggestions for sight seeing, restaurants, markets, grocery stores, and more. Each was exactly as she described. We could not have been more pleased with the restaurants she suggested. We so appreciate all the time that she put into making our stay pleasurable. We would definitely return to, as well as recommend this apartment. It was absolutely perfect!
Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review. I am so glad that you had such a great time and that my recommendations worked out so well for you!!
I look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
Beautiful traditional apartment
We had a wonderful 4 night stay.
The apartment was "spotlessly clean!" Beautifully decorated, and also had the typically French features, high ceiling, shutter ect.
In an ideal location near supermarche, beach, train station, lovely traditional bars and restaurants.
We felt very safe and secure staying there, lovely area.
Marie the key holder was so helpful too! Was on hand via phone if we needed her!
We will definitely be coming back to stay, couldn't fault it!
Petit trésor de Cannes
Nous y avons séjourné 16 jours lors du festival du film en mai 2016.
Situé tout près du cinéma de la quinzaine et à 10 minutes de marche de la croisette, cet appartement est un petit bijou.
Même en étant près de la rue d'Antibes, tout y est calme.
Spacieux, bien équipé pour cuisiner, a proximité de restaurants et du marché matinal.
Marie nous y a accueilli et a été toujours présente pour répondre à nos questions.
Nous n'hésitons pas à recommander cette location et espérons pouvoir y séjourner à nouveau.
