Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Cannes - Villa Picaud

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms & Guest WC - Sleeps 8

This is a very comfortable and charming villa, less than 70 metres from one of the most beautiful beaches on the French Riviera. It is a perfect villa for business colleagues attending one of the fairs or exhibitions at the Festival Hall as it offers comfort, space and privacy. It is a fifteen minute walk to the Festival Hall along the beach front. It is the perfect way to start or end a working day.

If you are attending any of the annual international conferences and exhibitions held in Cannes (MIDEM, MILIA, GSM, MIPIM, MIPTV, Cannes Film Festival, Publicity and Advertising, MIPCOM, TAX FREE, GARTNER, MAPIC) at the Festival Hall - our Cannes French Riviera villa rental is the place for you!

It is a great vacation home. It is perfect for a large family or two families staying together. There are two bedrooms en suite and a further two twin bedrooms sharing a shower room. There is a private gateway giving access to a beautiful sandy beach, perfect for sunbathing & swimming.

When we bought this villa, we did not realize how unique it was to be able to find a small villa so near to the centre of Cannes and the beach. Having your own front door makes a huge difference to a holiday and having outdoor space to sit and eat all add to the pleasure. There are lots of beach and all boating activities nearby. Waterskiing and sailing and windsurfing lessons are all available. David and Marie Noelle, who manage the villa add greatly to the pleasure of staying at the villa and it also gives the advantage of local knowledge. The airport pick ups are reasonable and great. Supermarket shopping is all accomplished on day one. They will bring you and collect you from some of the great restaurants such as the famous Colombe d'Or in St Paul de Vence or restaurants in Mougins or Theoul. The Google map is not accurate. The villa is very near the International college and the beach on Boulevare.

There is always something happening in Cannes, fireworks in the summer, musical festivals. Outdoor concerts and shows are regular activities There are many water sports available from the harbour.

Cannes is a wonderful place from which it is easy to explore the Riviera. It has an excellent public transport system and a great road network

Some ideas while in Cannes

Take the ferry to St. Tropez or the Iles des Lerins or the Porquerolles

Take the ferry to San Remo in Italy for excellent shopping. There are markets on Tuesday and Saturday

Take the train to many of the resorts along the Riviera, it is an easy journey to Nice, Antibes, St Tropez, Eze, Monaco.

The train station is within walking distance. of the villa. Take the train to Monte Carlo, have lunch and carry on to San Remo in Italy for shopping and dinner and return to Cannes that night. Go to Nice and take a ferry to Corsica.

While a lot of the riviera closes down in the winter, Cannes is full of life and there are many different events taking place. There are so many things to do that there is never enough time.

There are theme parks for children and adventure sports areas at the Gorge.

There are many wonderful restaurants to try and there is a Michelin guide at the villa.

We have a full list of all of the golf clubs in the area with descriptions available on our web site. We can also arrange a driver. It is a perfect house for a golf holiday for 4 to 8 people.

Ski in the winter. There is a small family ski station one hour from Cannes and a bus that brings you there every morning and returns every evening. In an hour and a half you can get to the ski stations of Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron

There are many other adventure sports during the summer months including paragliding and canyoning.

Cannes is well represented when it comes to classical and modern French art and the resort boasts a series of quality art galleries. Housing a mixture of permanent collections and visiting exhibitions, the best art galleries within Cannes often promote the works of local artists from the Riviera region and beyond.

About Mairead

I go to Cannes every year to a trade show and rented this house. I enjoyed it so much that I bought it. I know the area well and am now on my 17th year coming to Cannes. I live in Ireland and we visit Cannes a couple of times a year. We often have two families staying and it is ideal for large groups. if you would like further information on the property, please call Jacqui in the US Pacific time +1 3108662717

Mairead purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mairead chose Cannes

The design of the house and the layout is very suitable for business groups or families. The large living area with two terraces means that there is space for everyone. In a family situation, it gives privacy for different age groups. There is a small terrace beside one of the twin rooms and this is great for smokers or for teens who just want to hang together.

What makes this villa unique

I didn't realize how unique the villa was when I bought it. There are not many places so close to Cannes itself and the beach in the area. I feel that I was very lucky to get this house. I love going into Cannes to the market and the restaurants and I love going to the beach. The beach is wonderful and we go there in our swimwear and would often go, just for a quick swim before breakfast or lunch. I love to walk to the market and if I have a lot of shopping, I take the bus back. The bus system is fantastic as there is a bus every ten minutes and it costs 1.5 euro

Guestbook comments from the owner

12/11/2006 This is a gorgeous house in an unbelievable location. We had a great time and loved being so close to the beach - literally 50 yards away. House is really comfortable with everything you could need. Enjoyed the centre of Cannes very much and will definitely be back with, or without, the kids. It is great for both.



-Claire



12/13/2006 We rented this house for a recent trade show and stayed on for a few days vacation. It was great location for both. Super comfortable and really nicely decorated. Marie Noelle and David were lovely. We had a great time, thank you.

Fantastic location; spacious and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

I planned a long weekend in Cannes with friends. I wanted

to go shopping, take in the sights and be close to the action. Booked Villa Picaud and was picked up at the airport for the short drive to our destination which was a great added service. The house was lovely; well fitted out, spacious and inviting. It had a good balance of indoor and outdoor living space and there even was a jacuzzi! I couldn't believe

how close the house was to the beach. We were also in walking distance to the most popular restaurants and shops in Cannes. I plan to rebook again – although this time it will be strictly business and the house is perfect for my needs.

Excellent Plus!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a multi-week vacation at the lovely Villa Picaud in Cannes. The home is stunning. It’s very large, comfortable, beautifully furnished, and ideally located. There are 3 terraces to enjoy the peaceful outside green surroundings. It comes with private garage parking, which is unusual to find in a popular place like Cannes. The home is wonderfully maintained and should even a small issue arise, the caretakers respond immediately. Villa Picaud shows pride of ownership. Mairead keeps it in top shape so that her vacation guests can enjoy a care-free interlude. We loved the half block walk to the golden sandy beach and the short walk into centre ville. We highly recommend Villa Picaud to anyone who is planning a vacation in Cannes. If you have a large family/group, this is one of the few rentals that can accommodate you in style. Merci, Mairead, for sharing this jewel.

Another wonderful stay at Villa Picaud

  • 5 of 5

This was our Fourth year at the villa and once again it did not disappoint. The location is superb and the all one could ask for is provided right down to the personal services offered by the caretakers. A friendly face at the airport after a long trip is priceless. The property is very well kept. The owner renovates one area each year which is a testament to the overall management of this property. We love the villa and will continue to return. Many Thanks, Mairead, David and Marie Noelle for another great year!!

Lovely house for our big family

  • 4 of 5

Our big family stayed at Villa Picaud for one week in the beginning of July, and it was the perfect start to the holidays. We were all very satisfied with the house, the location and the service we got. As we were a group of very different needs, including my grand mother of 88 years, and my nephew who is 2, it was easy to organise the day when the house was so near both the beach and the city center. And with all the space in the house we didn't have to sit together at all times. Except for a few missing light bulbs, we didn't lack anything in the house. So thank you very much :) Kristin Granbo

Well equipped villa close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Picaud is nicely located close (100 meters) from the beach. It easily can sleep eight people without any feeling of crowdedness and has three newly renovated bathrooms. You can alternate between the two patios depending if you want sun or shadow. The house is very well equipped with beach chairs, parasol umbrellas and floating toys as well as a kitchen with household utensils of most kinds. The livingroom is generously furnished and a large television set offer all the channels you will ever need. This was our second time in the house and we will gladly recommend it to friends and relatives. Services provided are excellent like airport pick-up or grocery shopping at a nearby supermarket so you don't need to rent a car.

Car: not necessary

The villa is very near the International college and the beach on Blvd du Midi. That gives a more accurate

picture of where the villa is. There are very few villas so near to Cannes and the beach so we are very lucky to be in such a great location. The google map is not accurate. The garage is suitable for a small car. It will not work with large cars, 4 wheel drive or 7 seaters. We will give you one space outside the villa if you have a large car. All parking is at the car owners risk. It is possible to find parking on the public roads.

There is always something happening in Cannes, fireworks in the summer, musical festivals. Outdoor concerts and shows are regular activities There are many water sports available from the harbour. It is still full of life and open in the winter.

Cannes is a wonderful place from which it is easy to explore the Riviera. It has an excellent public transport system and a great road network

Some ideas while in Cannes

Take the ferry to St. Tropez or the Iles des Lerins or the Porquerolles

Take the train to many of the resorts along the Riviera, it is an easy journey to Nice, Antibes, St Tropez, Eze, Monaco.

Take the train to Monte Carlo, have lunch and carry on to San Remo in Italy for shopping and dinner and return to Cannes that night. Explore St Paul de Vence and Mougins and surrounding areas. If you book in advance, the manager of the house will drive and collect you from some great restaurants.

Other Activities: perfect for business at the Palais
