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.

The apartment is situated in an excellent location – walking distance to beach, train station, shops, and market, yet in a quiet spot. The apartment has everything you could need. It was clean, well maintained and furnished to a high standard…home from home really. We popped around to the local boulangerie for fresh croissants to start the day. We enjoyed many evenings eating out on the terrace or enjoying the many lovely restaurants in Cannes. We took two train trips one to Nice and another to, Monaco and over the border to Italy for the Friday market. We also spent time just chilling by the pool. The owner Anne and the local agent Carol were very helpful and responsive. We will definitely come back here.

We had an AMAZING stay and our host Helene was professional and friendly. We were just a 10 minute taxi ride to the main strip and there was a also a convenience shop walking distance. The villa was fully equipped with everything you need for a great stay. The jacuzzi was fantastic and available to use at all times. We had an excellent stay, and we will definitely be staying at Villa Caravelle again! Thank you Helene for a memorable stay in Cannes!
