About this listing
A little piece of heaven in the center of Cannes and only steps away from the crystal blue sea, high street shopping, open air food market, multitude of restaurants and easy access to and from the train, bus and taxi stations.
Chic and cozy designer (non-smoking) apt in the heart of Cannes - a stones throw from the world famous Croisette, Palais de Festival and crystal azure Mediterranean sea. This secure top 4th floor apt is very quiet and comes equipped with air conditioning/heating plus a full kitchen, washing machine, cable/tv/free WIFI and stereo.
Ideally situated in the lively Carre D'Or, the hot spot for enjoying a multitude of restaurants and bars and in the evenings, the streets become 'pedestrian only'. Closely accessible by foot to both bus and train stations and even closer to the Marche Gambetta, a great daily open air market where you'll find fresh fruit/vegetables and even clothing and shoes!
We look forward to welcoming you to our apt and giving you some helpful suggestions on what to discover during your stay in Cannes.
Please note, we can only accommodate arrivals before 21:00 (9pm) so please consider this prior to making your travel plans.
Interaction with Guests
We contact you on the day of your arrival to make sure you are ready and on time for your arrival at our apt. We usually don't like to bother you during your stay so please feel free to contact us if you are in need of anything that our concierge can't help you with.
We love the fact that all you have to do is exit the building and you don't have to step 5 feet without finding a great bar or yummy restaurant. Oh, and the Marche Gambetta is only a 2 min walk away and let's not forget about the beach, only a 2 min walk the other direction!
If you need to get to the main bus terminal or down to Palm Beach, just walk to the Croisette and you'll find several bus stops on either side of the street. Or alternatively, if you need a taxi and you can't hail one down, walk over to either the JW Marriott or Gray D'Albion and you'll be able to get one there.
Other Things to Note
If you are arriving by taxi, it is the easiest way to arrive. If you are arriving by bus, you will either need to take a short 5 min taxi ride to our apt or you can walk which will take about 12 mins. If you take the train, it will take you about 8 mins to reach our house by foot. I wouldn't get a taxi from the train station unless you have a lot of luggage.
No smoking or pets allowed. You must be available at check-in (10 min) to go through a check list of the apts functions and a review of the apt in 'move-in condition'. This review is to ensure you are not held responsible for any previous damages or losses and an additional review applies at check-out.
This is a very well-located, friendly apt. very much as described. It was rather compact and tucked away on the 4th floor, in back of a building. It's size was well compensated by its central and convenient location, and its proximity to a supermarket should not be undervalued. Perfect as a home base, but not the place for hanging out...what was missing was a chair to rest (my back) in.
Check-in and check-out was seamless and very friendly and accommodating. Thank you for the enjoyable stay. Overall, a good find.
This is our second year staying at Monique's apartment & we find it to be clean, comfortable & really well located. Monique is trustworthy, easy to communicate with and I would be happy to stay in this cosy apartment again.
The communication process with Monique was very clear and straightforward with nothing left to chance. Check in was seamless with the concierge. who made sure I knew how everything worked before she left the apartment.
The apartment is on a busy street but there is absolutely no noise as it faces onto the rear of the building so it's lovely and tranquil. The bed is extremely comfortable and the apartment is very well equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
Location is everything - 5 minutes walk from the Palais des Festivals and the railway station and a minute from Rue d'Antibes meant that I was never late for a meeting and had plenty of time for shopping!
Check out was very fast and I can't praise V, the concierge enough for her help and kindness.
The studio is as described and depicted. Its location in Cannes is indeed fantastic. Simply next door to all the natural, culinary, fashion, ... and other delights that Cannes has to offer. Communication with Monique is very punctual, friendly and efficient.
Though at night the area is very busy (restaurants, bars, night clubs) inside the studio nothing can be heard of the street live.
Having discovered this safe heaven we would certainly once like to return there.
I stayed in this cosy apartment for 10 days. Monique is really friendly and ready to help if have any questions. Monique answered me within several answers after I wrote a request for my stay in the apartment. Monique also sent me instructions with all necessary detailed information (it was the first time I stayed in the appart and I am so thankful for all provided info,so that when coming I knew everything-how to came from airport,what to do-not to do in the appart). It is really small, but everything as on the pictures. However, there is really everything that you can need during the stay! The appart is located perfectly,need to the beach, restaurants,shops,railway station.
I would like to thank Monique for being to friendly and helped us to call a taxi. When I wrote her sms, I got the answer almost immediately. I would like to come back next year.
Nice apartment equipped like a modern hotel room. Small size but great location. Tiny lift can only fit around 2 people but it's not a problem.
We had a great stay at Monique's apartment, it is clean, comfortable, well stocked and located.
The apartment is a 10 minute walk from the Palais (on the Croisette turn at Dior then walk two small blocks up the hill then turn right into a little street with bars & restaurants). The fold down bed is surprisingly comfortable & the apartment is quiet.
Monique & the concierge Victoria were friendly & easy to communicate with. All in all we would be happy to stay there again next year!
About the Host, Monique
I'm an international traveler at heart and I can make my home wherever I lay my hat. However, as I've gotten older, I pay extra for air conditioning! Been to over 40 countries and still counting :). My husband and I have opened our pied a terre in Cannes to share with other like minded travelers. And yes, we have air conditioning! Treat it just like your own home, is all we ask.
