Make a holiday apartment in Cannes your home away from home

The holiday resort to end all holiday resorts, accommodation in Cannes is sited in possibly the most famous and exclusive destination in Europe. Opulence and luxury abounds, giving Cannes holiday apartment guests a glimpse into the international jetset lifestyle. Usually set next to the sea, a hinterland of mountainous terrain also means Cannes accommodation doesn't just suit the aspiring hedonist, with plenty of outdoor activities to satiate even the most outward-bound tourists.

The vast majority of Cannes holiday rentals have full kitchens and laundry facilities, with most also having satellite TV for those quiet evenings in. Some have DVD players and internet access to round out the entertainment options. As for luxuries, a select few offer private swimming pools, BBQ areas and even tennis courts.

Things to do

Culture: The Cannes Film Festival dominates the month of May, and is, of course, the prime time to visit Cannes holiday accommodation – it allows guests to indulge in a little Hollywood celeb spotting. There are plenty of museums for the less starry-eyed, however, as well as an abundance of historical sites to visit.

Beaches: Is there any better way of starting a story than with "While I was on the beach at Cannes..."? Cannes imports sand for its natural pebble beaches every winter, so the tender toes of pampered feet remain unbruised. There are more public stretches than one might think, however – though they can get crowded as the summer progresses. For quieter beaches, check out holiday homes in Antibes, just five or so miles up the coast.

Nightlife: Cannes' nightlife is second to none. With three casinos, Cannes has the most of any town in France (Monaco, as a separate principality, doesn't count), and the majority of the best bars, restaurants and clubs are found in the Carre d'Or (Golden Square) formed by the streets surrounding the Rue Commandant Andre.

Shopping: The shopping, like the nightlife, is exclusive, chic, and expensive. However, its possibly the most fun place to browse in the world, right up there with the best Paris, London and New York have to offer. Factor in the year-round sunshine and scenic backdrop, and what more could a keen shopper ask for?

Outdoor pursuits: There are plenty of outlets along the seafront to take care of any surfing, windsurfing, water-skiing/wakeboarding (what trip to Cannes would be complete without a water-skiing excursion?) and sailing needs. Inland, the Esterel hills are ideal for hiking and mountain biking, and the southeastern Alps are, of course, only a short drive away.

Weather in Cannes

The Mediterranean climate of Cannes provides year-round sunshine, with over 300 clear days annually. Expect temperatures during the height of summer to reach 32°C, with highs in the low-teens during the winter. The climate is mostly dry, with only 34 inches of rain per year, concentrated mainly in the months of October and November.

Travel to Cannes

The nearest main air travel hub is Nice Cote d'Azur Airport at 16 miles away. Most of the major airlines fly into this busy nexus, the third-largest airport in France. Travel by train is also convenient, as the French TGV high-speed network is second to none, and can get guests to Cannes from Paris in as little as six hours. Of course, driving is always a possibility, taking a fairly comfortable couple of days from the south of England.

It really is a gem with excellent wifi, great facilities for our needs, on the doorstep of beaches, restaurants, public transport, sites, shopping. My two teenage boys and I enjoyed watching the world go by from the balcony and lounge area. Would love to return again one day God willing. We went to a different beach each day and took the train to Nice for a day out. Hired bikes from Yourent just a couple of minutes walk on the harbour front. Handy for shopping and daily fruit, veg, cheese etc market just behind the apartment. Thanks Alain and ladies for efficient communication and for a wonderful stay. God bless you all.
