Le Cannet self-catering holiday villas are set on the Cote d’Azur, not far from the city of Cannes. It’s a tourist destination celebrated for its natural beauty, overlooking the Bay of Cannes and surrounded on two sides by terraced hills covered with pines, olive groves, eucalyptus trees and orange orchards.
During your stay at a Le Cannet apartment it would be well worth heading for the heart of the old town here. It’s a typically Provencal experience, with ochre walls, walkways and alleys and a variety of historic architecture. Here you’ll be able to admire medieval churches, towers and chapels. Another interesting feature of the old town is its artistic heritage, with numerous artisan shops to be discovered along Rue Saint-Sauveur.
Cannes, the glamorous seaside town, is just minutes from Le Cannet self-catering holiday villas. In May it hosts the world famous film festival, during which it’s visited by a host of famous film stars, who can be seen in person at the entrance to the Palais des Festivals. In the meantime it’s a town with an abundance of excellent restaurants and elegant cafes, not to mention its exclusive casinos.
If you’re hoping for something slightly less glitzy then you might like to head to Cannes from self-catering accommodation in Le Cannet to admire the architectural beauty in the old district of Le Suquet, home to cobbled lanes and a host of friendly local restaurants. This part of town was originally where the fishermen lived and dates back more than 400 years.
The closest beaches to Le Cannet self-catering holiday rentals are the ones on the Cannes waterfront, and La Croisette, which are no more than four kilometres away. Meanwhile, if you happen to be a golf enthusiast then there are at least seven in the Cannes Area. A great choice would be Opio Valbonne, set in picturesque natural scenery with a 17th Century Bastide housing the restaurant and clubhouse.
