THE FRENCH RIVIERA AND ITS LEGENDARY TOWNS
CANNES... CITY OF LEGEND
Situated at the edge of the Mediterranean, the city of Cannes enjoys an exceptional location, protected by the Lérins Islands. Just 20 minutes from Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport, and equally accessible from the private Airport of Cannes – Mandelieu, Cannes and the pretty surrounding landscape, is a truly prestigious destination which never fails to surprise, regardless of the time of year.
The City of Festival’s slogan, “Whoever goes there, lives there” is symbolic of its seductive powers and in a city that has achieved legendary status over the years, there’s much to boast about. Renowned globally for the Cannes Film Festival, it has still managed to retain a village-style feel, not unlike a typical south of France town where life looks rosy all year round. Our favourite pastimes include strolling in the traditional medieval Le Suquet quarter, checking out the artisan goods in the Forville market, and wandering through the cobbled lanes fringed by pastel-hued houses that lead down to the Old Port.
Of course, there are also heavenly beaches, exceptional museums, the Lérins Islands and last, but certainly not least, the superb and highly esteemed La Croisette, home to the First Croisette residence.
Whether you’re on land or sea, a glimpse of the city, breathing in its air and experiencing its hum of daily life allows you to be a small part of the legend !
CANNES… CENTER OF THE WORLD
The best things come in small packages! Cannes, once a fishing port between Saint-Tropez and Monaco, is today the nerve centre of the world’s most prestigious events, attracting worldwide attention!
Just 20 minutes from Nice Côte d’Azur Airport, with its numerous connections, a stone’s throw from the Cannes – Mandelieu private Airport, and a few kilometres from Monaco, Cannes enjoys a central location with multiple connections by land, sea and air.
With its mild climate, breath-taking landscapes, charming alleyways, palm-tree lined promenades, turquoise seas, sun-ripened gastronomy, unique events and prestigious real estate, no one leaves Cannes indifferent to its charms. This is a place where simplicity becomes exceptional, beauty becomes the norm and a lunch in the sun is something to remember forever.
It's time to stop dreaming of Cannes, and to live it!
CANNES... THE TUMULTUOUS CITY
Over the decades, Cannes has become a truly fabulous destination, popular with visitors from all over the world. Blessed with natural, cultural and maritime riches, Cannes is at the same time an iconic city and a pretty little picture-perfect Provençal town. Highlights include dazzling blue skies and turquoise seas, the green of its palm trees, brilliant white yachts, baby pink cocktails and the vibrant pace of life in a city that is both cosmopolitan but welcoming. Luxury boutiques, trendy restaurants, idyllic beaches, pretty lanes and alleyways, superb gastronomy, everything here is all about pleasure and true happiness.
Cannes is a treasure of a city that is adored by conference delegates. In fact the city has been voted the world’s best destination for festivals and professional events. The International Film Festival, naturally, but also the MIPIM, the Cannes Series Festival, the Cannes Lions Festival, the Cannes Yachting Festival and the Tax Free World Exhibition are some of the most hotly anticipated professional events across different sectors.
