The location is in the heart of Cannes on a small pedestrian street, just 2 minutes' walk to the beach and 5 minutes walk to the Palais de Festival.
I live with my husband and two teenage children in a small village near Guildford in the Surrey Hills. I very much enjoy walking in the beautiful countryside surrounding us, practising Yoga and spending as much time as I can with my family and close friends. We decided to buy property in the South of France as we wanted somewhere we could get to easily and quickly, with a great location, in a traditional apartment building, close to all the restaurants and amenities there are to offer and with a general guarantee of warm weather and wanted a sound investment. This is exactly what we have in Cannes now with our beautiful apartments and always look forward to our next trip there.
The apartments are very comfortable and give the feeling of 'home' but the best thing is the beautiful large Terrace which each apartment has. We have made the terraces to look like small gardens, with Cypress trees, Jasmine climbing up trellaces and bamboo plants which all help to give a sense of calm and make the areas very pretty and appealing. The large pergolas provide essential shade from the midday sun and it is so lovely to be able to spend a great deal of time outside in the privacy of our own apartment - right in the middle of a lively town! We enjoy sitting out in the evenings and having dinner and relaxing on the terrace without having the need to book up restaurants or eat inside the apartment. It is hard to imagine sometimes that the apartment is right in the centre of such a lively town when we are relaxing outside on our beautiful Terrace! It is a truly private haven for us as a family and we very much enjoy staying with our friends and using both apartments - thereby allowing us all to have our own privacy, yet to be next door to each other and have our own Terraces to use -it is just perfect.
The location of the apartments being situated on rue Freres Casanova, which is a small pedestrian street off the busy rue d'Antibes and also running parallel with rue d'Antibes is the lovely pedestrian street of rue Hoches, which is lined with coffee shops and restaurants. The restriction of vehicles is wonderful and so makes the atmosphere at the apartment calm and peaceful. The greatest asset are the large terraces. We spend many hours relaxing and having meals around our dining tables or just lazing in the sunshine reading a book and enjoying the beautiful sunshine in private. We then choose our times to go down to the beach for a swim, usually early in the morning or late afternoon. It is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy and is our real 'home away from home'!
