About Fiona Boult

I enjoy spending many months of the year in Cannes sunning myself and soaking up the sea air! It's my other life! And I'd like to share it with you!I I am an artist at home but in Cannes I take a sabbatical as I prefer to be out in the sun and air taking enjoyment in photographing the odd and wonderful scenes and objects I pass on my excursions to use them as inspiration when I return to England. It's a luxury and delight to be able to drive/train just over the border into another country and enjoy Italy's treasures.

Fiona Boult purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Fiona Boult chose Cannes

Studio 3 was purchased on a whim whilst visiting friends who had just bought an apartment in Cannes! I visited for 6 days in December, lunched by the sea in my sun top, took a train along the sea to Monaco and fell in love with the whole area. Instead of getting on the airport bus with a new pair of shoes I took Studio 3 home with me! Several months of renovation took place to enable myself and renters to take many happy memories away with us!

I fell in love with this particular Studio having spotted it in an agent's window in le Suquet just before catching the bus to the airport!! I was shown 2 others but this one did it for me. Authentic, characterful, high provencal planked ceiling, in a quiet corner of the square yet at the heart of the life of this artisan area.

What makes this apartment unique

Central, walking distance of everything you might need including the train station, beaches, shops, restaurants. Small opening window at the back opening on to garden area with birds singing. View of the church square. Next to food shops and the market and many many restaurants and traiteurs. No traffic noise. Characterful area. First Floor. Air con and heating. Flat screen TV. Tastefully furnished. Everything working and in good order.

Bonjour Cannes

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a stay in Cannes either solo or “a deux”, Fiona’s studio close to the Forville Market will suit you well. I have just returned from a short trip and was extremely happy with the studio and its convenient location. In fact very convenient location – for the market – for the beach – for the restaurants, everything is within a five minute walk. Oh and not forgetting the station where you can catch buses to Grasse and Nice plus many other destinations.

The studio is very well equipped, the bed comfortable and the shower room adequate. Fiona makes a nice gesture of leaving a “starter” pack of wine, coffee, orange juice and biscuits – just enough to perk you up before heading out following her extremely comprehensive instructions of where to go and what to do !

On my return home I was impressed by the very prompt return of my deposit. One thing that can drag on for ages and slightly spoil memories of a good holiday ! I would add I am definitely aiming to return to Cannes and Fiona’s studio in the not too distant future !

What a find! In the heart of the old town.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely studio apartment, close to everything! 10 minutes to the beach and if you want to be pampered you can hire parasol and lounger and be attended by young men who second guess your every need! More importantly, very close to the Forville market for supplies and the Rue Suquet for good restaurants. I have had a lovely time and will return when it is cooler and I can explore more.

Thank you Fiona .

Wonderful stay in the heart of old Cannes

  • 5 of 5

Fiona was exceptionally helpful from booking all the way through to the end of my stay in her beautiful apartment in Cannes.

She has created a comfortable and stylish haven from which everything is on your doorstep.

The daily market was amazing as were the ambundance of restaurants and cafés with something to suit all tastes.

I would recommend this well maintained and managed property to anyone who wants to experience the best part of Cannes and cannot wait to go back as soon as possible.

Thank you Fiona for providing constant help , support and advice during my stay .

Everything you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Cannes in the studio and thinking back our most fondest memory was waking up in the studio and listening to the hustle and bustle from the streets below, so close to everything but still having the privacy and homey feeling of the studio. All amenities are there (wifi, fully functional kitchen, washing machine, beach towels, and even a bottle of wine waiting). Only minutes to walk to the open Forville market, supermarkets, cafes (Poet cafe for people watching), restaurants (especially Le Marais on Rue du Suquet). No need for a car. The express bus leaves directly from the Nice airport terminal to the old town and a 5 minute walk to the studio. The harbor, beaches and shopping streets are all within walking distance, but if a car is needed, parking is available onsite.

The property met all our of needs and the owner provided excellent customer service and was very helpful in answering our questions.

Hope we can return one day.

Attractive Studio with great location

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and well equipped studio with personal character at a convenient and attractive location.

I stayed for a work trip and unlike hotel rooms or other rental properties that I have stayed at in the area Fiona's studio felt like a home you look forward going back to every time.

The location is great, just up the street from the bus terminal and express bus to the airport. It's a short walk to the Palais or the train station, the old town and Suquet are right outside your door, the old harbor just down the street.

Restaurants, supermarkets and great bakeries are around the corner and the Forville market is just across the square in earshot. I enjoyed the pleasant muted sounds of the market activities in the morning and the convenience of grabbing some fresh fruit on my way to work.

The apartment is very functional and well equipped with every amenity you would need including well functioning Wifi.

You can tell this is somebody's home with a personal touch rather than a soulless rental property. I had a great stay and would go back any time.

Thank you Fiona for keeping such a lovely place.

A characterful studio with great amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The studio is charming and has a peaceful atmosphere. It is ideally located to allow you to sample both sides of Cannes, the glitzy and the traditional.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and look forward to returning.

Cannes is the jewel of the Cote d'Azur with its own micro-climate. Views across the bay to the Esterel range and the Lerin Islands. Not the loud brash Nice and considerably more year-round life than Antibes. Alive 12 months of the year. Friendly size. All you could need in a holiday destination. Beaches, shops, boats all within walking distance. Trains, buses and boats to other hotspots. Golf courses all around (car needed). Day ski bus up to the resorts. Glamour and politesse. Sun and blue skies all year round. Express bus from Nice airport non-stop to Cannes taking about half an hour. Studio 3 is 3 minutes from the bus square.
