The Ultimate Cannes Experience - charming 17th century Provençal house which has been in the owner's family for over 3 centuries and has been added to in the course of centuries. It is named Le Cros (the Hollow) and gave its name to the neighbourhood. Located at the top of Cannes's well-known Boulevard Carnot which directly connects the Palais des Festivals to Le Cannet. The rue du Cros is off the rue Victorien Sardou in which Le Cannet's cinema is located.
The centre of Cannes can be reached by direct bus N°1 in less than twenty minutes for just over 1€.
There is also a taxi rank at the nearby town hall - travel to the Croisette in less than 10 minutes.
It is very easy to park close to this villa either in the street or in the free communal car-park.
The villa has a sea-view from the upper level bedrooms and is definitely a much better and cheaper experience than staying at a hotel.
You can buy anything you need from the local small shops on Boulevard Carnot. Pharmacy, Post-office and Library as well as the excellent Baker and Butcher are just 1 minute away. How about taking home some delicious gourmet food from these local shops and relax in the garden if you do not feel like going out to expensive restaurants. Try the delicious local produce - the breads, cheese and a bottle of wine is often a much better way of enjoying French cuisine and Provençal delicacies than dining out. Needless to say that the villa and its quaint garden offer you much more space than a hotel room. What is more you can wander peacefully and safely in the village's main street, pedestrianised rue Saint-Sauveur with all its Arts and Crafts shops, its fine art galleries and numerous cosy restaurants without forgetting the Place Bellevue where from you will admire the liners moored in the Bay of Cannes.
You will be able to walk to the other villa for 8/9 by the same owner, please ask for details.
More Chic: The villa has entirely been refurbished and is equipped with all modern amenities while retaining its 17th century charm with its 'tommettes' (red tiles) ; its old stone fountain dated 1867; its ancient stone 'lavoir' (wash-place); its old wine press where the owner's father, grand-father and great-grandfather used to 'tread' the grapes from their land barefoot and finally its rounded staircase 'confiturier' (marmalade cabinet) to keep the orange preserves they had made from the bitter 'Bigarade' oranges that grew (and still grow) in the garden. The garden is planted with jasmine, orange, tangerine- and olive-trees (that make a natural parasol over the elegant garden furniture) not to mention a Muscat grape vine that yields delicious grapes.

Guestbook comments from the manager
I stayed from Friday to Monday and I couldn't believe I had to leave this little paradise. It was so good to come back to le Cannet after La Croisette's madness.
Really lovely property, quiet and very sunny. The roof of grapes in the garden made me feel like in a true fairytale.
Amazing taste, loved the pink/ocre walls, very good beds and showers- very well restored.
I had a beautiful experience staying there and I would recommend this property to everyone.
