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

L appartement est vraiment bien situé. Il manque juste une vue sur le ciel ou la mer.
Квартира в целом нам понравилась,есть все что нужно для отдыха и ни чего лишнего. Нет посудомойки, но это не принципиально. Красивый подъезд, его мы изучили в доль и поперек,но об этом ниже)) в самой квартире чистоты особой не было. От пляжа рукой подать( мин. 2-3), до рынка чуть дальше(мин. 7-10). В целом на 4ку.
Но настроение подпортил первый день...за пару дней до заселения, мы с Наташей списались,где я уточнила когда и во сколько мы будем в Каннах. Со спокойной душой и с маленьким ребенком мы отправились в отпуск. Приехав в квартиру нас ни кто не встретил, писав и звонив куда только можно, ответа от Наташи и помощи от сайта мы не получили. После 4-х часов ожидания в подъезде мы сняли отель на 2 дня, заселившись в который мы написали Наташе на личную эл.почту, после чего спустя пару часов она нам написала,что сама находится в Калифорнии и что б мы позвонили мужчине который нас встретит,скинув номер телефона. В итоге мы конечно заселились в этот же день в квартиру (отель сняли самый дешевый и честно говоря это была жуткая жуть))), но время было уже 9ть вечера. Нет понимания почему Наташа сразу не написала номер этого мужчины, проблем бы не было, а так осадок конечно остался.
We were very happy to stay in this apartment. It was event better than expected. Great location, beautiful place, fully equiped and everything was just very good. I recommend the place and hopefully will come back herr next year!
We had a great stay at Natacha's place. We were in Cannes for work and so needed to be close to the Palais. It was around 7 minutes fast walk from the apartment to the Palais! We really liked the location which was really close to the beach. Natacha was travelling just before we arrived so it was a little difficult to reach her but once we'd made contact with Jean-Jacques all went well. He picked us up from the airport for a very reasonable rate and anytime we had any questions, he was very quick to respond and pop over if he needed to. The apartment itself had everything we needed including outside spce, washing machine, internet connection and iron.
We spent a month in this apt with 2 children (1 and 5 years old).We got the key without any problem inspite of the fact that we arrived late at (website hidden) was clean in the apt. The kitchen is vere well equiped and in the flat you will find everything you need for long staying.The house is really very nice and the location is great. 3 minutes walk from the beach 10 minutes from the market. There is a good car rent not far from the house.
This small apartment has some nice decorative elements and is well located; convenient to shopping, beach and public transportation. It is well equipped with washer/dryer, wifi, dishes and cooking items (no oven). We had no problems meeting Chantal for the key. I don't think the owner is getting her money's worth from the cleaning staff. The apartment needs a thorough cleaning inside and on the patio.

About the Host, Natacha
Scientist (biologist) and photographer. (website hidden) I've been coming to spend my summers in the south of France since I was a baby, and am very familiar with all the different ways to enjoy the region (as a kid, party/debauchery teenager and now a mom). I currently live most of the year in San Francisco and can appreciate glitzy glamor and grungy fun.
