Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Centre-ville - Croisette - villa picaud

4 bedrooms, 3 with 3 bathrooms and guest wc, sleeps 8

This is a very comfortable and charming villa, less than 70 metres from one of the most beautiful beaches on the French Riviera. It is a perfect villa for business colleagues attending one of the fairs or exhibitions at the Festival Hall as it offers comfort, space and privacy. It is a fifteen minute walk to the Festival Hall along the beach front. It is the perfect way to start or end a working day.

If you are attending any of the annual international conferences and exhibitions held in Cannes (MIDEM, MILIA, GSM, MIPIM, MIPTV, Cannes Film Festival, Publicity and Advertising, MIPCOM, TAX FREE, GARTNER, MAPIC) at the Festival Hall - our Cannes French Riviera villa rental is the place for you! It is a great vacation home. It is perfect for a large family or two families staying together. There are two bedrooms en suite and a further two twin bedrooms sharing a shower room. There is a private gateway giving access to a beautiful sandy beach, perfect for sunbathing & swimming.

When we bought this villa, we did not realize how unique it was to be able to find a small villa so near to the centre of Cannes and the beach. Having your own front door makes a huge difference to a holiday and having outdoor space to sit and eat all add to the pleasure. There are lots of beach and all boating activities nearby. Waterskiing and sailing and windsurfing lessons are all available. David and Marie Noelle who manage the villa add greatly to the pleasure of staying at the villa and it also give the advantage of local knowledge. The airport pick ups are reasonable and great. Supermarket shopping is all accomplished on day one. They will bring you and collect you from some of the great restaurants such as the famous Colombe d'Or in St Paul de Vence or restaurants in Mougins or Theoul The google map is not accurate. The villa is very near the International college and the beach on Boulevare is always something happening in Cannes, fireworks in the summer, musical festivals. Outdoor concerts and shows are regular activities There are many water sports available from the harbour. It is still full of life and open in the winter.

About Mairead

I go to Cannes every year to a trade show and rented this house. I enjoyed it so much that I bought it. I know the area well and am now on my 17th year coming to Cannes. I live in Ireland and we visit Cannes a couple of times a year. I we would often have two families staying and it is ideal for large groups. if you would like further information on the property, please call Jacqui in the US pacific time +1 3108662717

Mairead purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mairead chose Centre-ville - Croisette

The design of the house and the layout is very suitable for business groups or families. The large living area with two terraces means that there is space for everyone. In a family situation, it gives privacy for different age groups. There is a small terrace beside one of the twin rooms and this is great for smokers or for teens who just want to hang together.

What makes this villa unique

I didn't realize how unique the villa was when I bought it. There are not many places so close to Cannes itself and the beach in the area. I feel that I was very lucky to get this house. I love going into Cannes to the market and the restaurants and I love going to the beach. The beach is wonderful and we go there in our swimwear and would often go, just for a quick swim before breakfast or lunch. I love to walk to the market and if I have a lot of shopping, I take the bus back. The bus system is fantastic as there is a bus every ten minutes and it costs 1.5 euro

Lovely house for our big family

  • 4 out of 5
Our big family stayed at Villa Picaud for one week in the beginning of July, and it was the perfect start to the holidays. We were all very satisfied with the house, the location and the service we got. As we were a group of very different needs, including my grand mother of 88 years, and my nephew who is 2, it was easy to organise the day when the house was so near both the beach and the city center. And with all the space in the house we didn't have to sit together at all times. Except for a few missing light bulbs, we didn't lack anything in the house. So thank you very much :) Kristin Granbo

Well equipped villa close to the beach.

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Picaud is nicely located close (100 meters) from the beach. It easily can sleep eight people without any feeling of crowdedness and has three newly renovated bathrooms. You can alternate between the two patios depending if you want sun or shadow. The house is very well equipped with beach chairs, parasol umbrellas and floating toys as well as a kitchen with household utensils of most kinds. The livingroom is generously furnished and a large television set offer all the channels you will ever need. This was our second time in the house and we will gladly recommend it to friends and relatives. Services provided are excellent like airport pick-up or grocery shopping at a nearby supermarket so you don't need to rent a car.

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 out of 5
We have been coming to the South of France for twenty years to attend the Cannes Film Festival and have stayed in all type of rentals, in all areas of Cannes and have found "Villa Picaud" to be the favorite for many reasons. The location is very private, yet minutes away from the town-centre, area restaurants, grocery stores, the Palais, the beach etc. The Villa is well equipped on all levels. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable which allows privacy when needed. The common areas are large enough to accommodate our colleagues for dinners in the courtyard or family visiting from the U.S., we never feel short on space. We do quite a bit of cooking, the kitchen yet small is well laid out and easy to work in. Forville Marche, the local open air market has absolutely everything you could want from fresh flowers, cheeses, local produce, fresh fish, meats etc. minutes away via the bus or walking. David and Marie Noelle are the Villa caretakers that have made our stay easier each year. Being pick-up at the airport after a long flight by a familiar face is a great welcome to Cannes. We highly recommend the villa to anyone heading off to the South of France for work or vacation. We will be back for the fourth year in a row, 2014.

Villa Picaud Easter 2013

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I enjoyed a memorable visit to Cannes at Easter. Your villa played a huge part in our experience. It was such a home from home with all the comforts that entails.
The location is ideal, close to the beach and the buzz of Cannes.

Villa Picaud Easter 2013

  • 5 out of 5
Ideal location. Only a few minutes to the beach and a lovely walk along the coast to Cannes centre (there is also a regular bus service with the bus stop just 2 mins away). The Villa is very spacious, private and comfortable and we had a lovely welcome from the caretakers, Marie-Noelle and David.

Villa Picaud July 2012

  • 5 out of 5
The description of the house at this web-site is very accurate. The house is so inviting and perfectly located. And so fully equipped! Sun chairs to take to the beach, and towels, are included. The walk takes less than five minutes. For our family of five it is also perfect that you don't need a car. Our youngsters can easliy walk to the centre in 15-20 minutes for some party and we parents can have a nice stroll to the market to buy fresh berries, fruits and vegetables.

I also want to mention that the welcoming, good advise and service we received from the caretaking couple was perfect. We are looking forward to going back!

Car: not necessary

The villa is very near the International college and the beach on Blvd du Midi. That gives a more accurate

picture of where the villa is. There are very few villas so near to Cannes and the beach so we are very lucky to be in such a great location. The google map is not accurate. The garage is suitable for a small car. It will not work with large cars, 4 wheel drive or 7 seaters. We will give you one space outside the villa if you have a large car. All parking is at the car owners risk. It is possible to find parking on the public roads.

There is always something happening in Cannes, fireworks in the summer, musical festivals. Outdoor concerts and shows are regular activities There are many water sports available from the harbour. It is still full of life and open in the winter.

Cannes is a wonderful place from which it is easy to explore the Riviera. It has an excellent public transport system and a great road network

Some ideas while in Cannes

Take the ferry to St. Tropez or the Iles des Lerins or the Porquerolles

Take the train to many of the resorts along the Riviera, it is an easy journey to Nice, Antibes, St Tropez, Eze, Monaco.

Take the train to Monte Carlo, have lunch and carry on to San Remo in Italy for shopping and dinner and return to Cannes that night. Explore St Paul de Vence and Mougins and surrounding areas. If you book in advance, the manager of the house will drive and collect you from some great restaurants.

Other Activities: perfect for business at the Palais
