About this listing
5 minute walk to festival, beach across the street, balcony, wifi, great bed and AC. Everything you and your kids need for a quiet comfortable stay in Cannes.
New very efficient air conditioning units installed. Balcony with table and 4 chairs. Our place is great for kids, with crib, easy stroller access + utensils (we just stayed here with a 2 year old and it went surprisingly well). Also very safe for single moms with kids.
Come enjoy our Cannes apartment. Its 5 minutes to the heart of Cannes (where the locals go) and 15 minute walk to the Palais des Festival where all the conferences and film festivals are. You can smell the Mediterranean and hear the seagulls from our large deck that receives direct sunlight a few hours a day.
Both large rooms open onto the large private terrace that overlooks a large art deco courtyard with fountain. There is a nice table on the patio for warm summer meals. Come with a sense of humor because the building is classic art deco movie set and borderlines on kitchy. We have all the creature comforts you need: large flat screen TV, wifi, ipod docking station, Nespresso, washer and dryer. Only missing a dishwasher.
The main bedroom has a very comfortable king size mattress. The sofa bed in the living room isn't very comfortable for 2, but will do the trick. Perfect for children.
The two rooms are nicely separated by 2 doors so two couples can enjoy privacy at night.
There is plenty of desk space for work and wifi.
The walk to the sandy beach (as shown in the images) is under 3 minutes. I grew up spending my summers on these beaches, they are the best non-private beaches in Cannes. You can have a perfect day on the sand with a towel without expensive private beach cost. Night swimming is also fantastic. Even in the winter months you can enjoy a stroll on the beach most nights with a thin jacket. Multi-million dollar Yatchs are a few minutes away, but you don't feel overwhelmed by the glitz in this area. Boats leave for the island "Ils De lerins" right down the road. Tourist free Theoule sur mer -our favorite red rock snorkeling and diving area is just 20 minutes down the coast. buses to Monte Carlo, St Tropez etc are 5 minute walk.
We are available via email for any questions, and are very familiar with the region. During the summer months we are local, otherwise we live in San Francisco. Our manager Jean Jaque -who handles greeting and keys and cleaning is available for 24/7 checkin. If you need anything he can help. In addition he can pick you up at the airport for a fraction of the cost of a taxi.
Please come with a sense of humor, the building is borderline cheezy but you cant beat the neighborhood (well the actual street is not my favorite, but 1 block in most directions is truly fantastic). There are hundreds of restaurants and shops at your doorstep. I highly recommend sunset beach picnics.
There is a stove but no oven.
Its very baby friendly and we can make arrangements for a crib and high chair if you plan to stay 5 days or more.
Jean Jaque and Chantal will greet you
