About the property

5 bedroom villa (sleeping up to 9 people) 250 meters from sandy beach in Cannes

Spacious villa with high ceilings situated in a good quiet residential area of Cannes offering easy access to the center whilst being well located to avoid the tourist throng of the center of town. This property has been fully refurbished and maintained to a high level. Fully equipped kitchen, TV in each room and Wifi access throughout the property. It is ideally suited to a family or two families sharing where you can relax and enjoy your vacation whilst the children play in a safe and secure environment. The beach is easily accessed on foot in under 5 minutes. However, if you are looking for night-life then Cannes is within walking distance or you can use the frequent bus and train links into the center. We hope you enjoy your stay here.

Value for money: This property offers great value for money because you have a charming spacious villa for non-Cannes prices. Added to that great outside space, and room to entertain, it is a real winner for those who want to be close to Cannes but require ample accommodation. For a beach holiday it is ideal because you are within a very close walk to both public and a super private beach. We can't praise Le Sport Plage enough because it represents good value, friendly and helpful staff and it is clean, well supervised and they have lounger side snacks that cost the same as the kiosks on the public beaches. This villa is very family friendly. It is not a super luxury villa but a solid option for people who are looking for big villa at reasonable price. We get lot of repeat visitors and people book sometimes a year in advance because of the value it presents.

We think it's a great holiday destination because everything essential is within walking distance and if (rarely) you get a bad day there is bowling, laser quest and a huge soft play center close by. Charming Villa in Cannes: 5 bedroom (sleeps 9 people), big spacious villa in Cannes (Cote D'azur, France), low price to attract repeat visitors, walking distance to sandy beach. Free Wifi, UK sky TV, French digital TV, all rooms and Living room & Kitchen are equipped with LCD TV.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a great way to experience Cannes if you are on a budget but want to experience the luxury of Cannes.

Nine of us girls (17 year olds) could all happily fit in the immersion pool with room for 3 to swim and lots of space in the outdoors area to chill for a day. Beach is 5 mins casual stroll away with a choice of 2 train stations that are virtually round the corner.

The main part of Cannes is down the train for 1.70€ return, a very good price but enough space to relax. 30-40 min walk which was nice to do at least once. Easy access to Monte Carlo also.

The villa is brilliant, English TV channels, large kitchen and spacious bedrooms. Nice bathrooms and huge lounge with a TV virtually in every room, it's extremely luxurious for the price it was!

Very family friendly and the owner is 100% trustworthy, always easily contactable and helpful. Strongly recommend staying here as its a great experience of Cannes.

Great family holiday for 80th birthday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here for my mothers 80th birthday, there was loads of room for 7 of us should of been 9 but 2 couldn't make it, the villa was big enough for 9. with a large living room,good sized kitchen with everything you need,plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms, and loads of space outside, and the pool was lovely and warm great for a dip after climbing the hill. The pictures don't do the property justice this is a great place for a family holiday, clean well maintained and the owners could not have been nicer. The villa is up a rather steep hill but my 80 year old parents managed the hill in 30 degree heat so its not as bad as it first looks! It is close to the beach, shops and restaraunts perfect for a holiday in Cannes without the Cannes price. Cannes only 1euro on the bus,

Charming, rustic villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Villa for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it...

The villa is great for a large group of friends/family due to its large size and ample facilities; 3 x WC/Shower rooms and a separate WC, large lounge with enormous sofa! and fantastic outside patio area with BBQ and superb views (and sunshine all day).

Just great.

Be warned of the sometimes chaotic French rail system... the villa is very close to Le Bosquet, or a short 5-10 minute walk to La Bocca... but in 2 weeks we encountered several strikes, and delays up to 45 minutes sometimes!

(plus rather inconsistent rail times - not on the hour every hour kind of thing!)

Best advice - enquire before hand and get an online copy of the very easy to understand train timetables, and also use the busses... these were generally very handy (4 an hour) and only eu1 into Cannes. (Train is eu1.30)

So once we got the hang of the transport we were generally OK, with lots of options for getting around! It just baffled us initially!

Expect Paris-esque prices in Cannes... but shop around - eat/drink near the train station and you can get better value dining...

All in all, a great villa, good facilities and peaceful location only a short commute (1 train stop) into Cannes...

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review of the property. We really appreciated the maturity of your group and respect for the property. Indeed French train system can be a bit erratic sometimes due to strikes etc but provides a great alternative to the guests who do not wish to bring a car. Hope you had a good film festival 2012 and hope to see you again some time soon. best wishes.

Great stay during Cannes Lions

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here in mid June 2011 for the Cannes Lions show. There was 5 of us and we were able to eat, work and relax in good comfort. The house was spacious enough, very clean, with an abundance of towels and we really enjoyed the immersion pool. We rented a car but were also easily able to access central Cannes from nearby buses and taxis. The team has already recommended that we rent it again for next year! It's a superb value for the money..
