About Mr J Mindham

Born in London, I have always enjoyed France and the amazing clarity of the light in the south of France. Now 'early-retired' I manage this property myself and always welcome guests personally, showing them everything they need to know about the area and the apartment.

Mr J Mindham purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mr J Mindham chose Cannes

With the sun streaming into the living room in mid-February, coming from the north of Europe how could I resist?

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet apartment in a quiet residential area (wake up hearing the birds sing !), but in the centre of town and only a few minutes walk from the Croisette/beach/Palais des Festivals. Private parking. Adjustable air-conditioning/heating. WiFi internet and FREE landline calls to many countries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a pleasure to stay in this attractive and spacious apartment in a quiet neighbourhood just a short walk from local food shops and the station, and less than 10 minutes walk from the beach. It's an interesting and pleasant walk to Le Suquet, the old town. The owner was friendly and very helpful, giving us clear information and useful advice. Each room is sunny and bright, well furnished and clean. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom and shower room well appointed. The king size bed was wonderfully comfortable. The apartment is not overlooked and enjoys views in both directions: the view from the lounge was particularly impressive in the evening. The balconies (with electric blinds) are a considerable bonus.

All told, a five star experience which we hope to repeat

Great apartment and location!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Cannes was especially enjoyable this year. This apartment has wonderful light, a fantastic location and all the essential amenities. The refurbished bathrooms were also a plus. The owner was very helpful and available if needed (and he wasn't needed). Grocery store nearby was handy. The train station was minutes away, for travel to other towns. I would definitely stay here again.

Comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment for a late summer break in Cannes and it was perfect.

Bright and spacious with lovely views we had breakfast on the balcony on one side and a glass of wine in the evening on the other side as the sun went down.

Spotlessly clean and it had everything we needed ( and more) fabulously comfortable bed and super shower!

The owner has made it feel just like home with lots of advice on how everything worked as well as how to find the local supermarket and bakery for the morning croissants!

The local market is a five minute walk away and two minutes later you are on the beach!

Large sunny flat with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient flat with great access to main shops and the sea.

Wonderful to return and enjoy again the amazing views of the terracotta roofs and hill. The balconies mean it is possible to enjoy sunshine all day. Extremely comfortable bed in large ensuite main bedroom, as well as being very quiet. Everything needed is just so close by and Cannes is such a beautiful and friendly seaside town.

We had a lovely stay !

  • 5 of 5

We rented Jonathan's apartment for 3 weeks during Christmas and New Year. The apartment is nice, bright and from the living room and one of the bedrooms you have a nice view over the hills of Cannes (La Californie). We usually had breakfast at the dining table in the living room and sitting there seeing the sun rise over Cannes is very nice. The apartment is on the 4th of 6 floors and located in a residential area with secure parking provided in an adjacent building. In the apartment there are 2 bedrooms, a living room (with large flat screen TV), kitchen with all you need (including dishing- and washing machine), 1 bathroom with tub, a separate shower and in total 3 toilets. There are foodstores in the area of which one is a supermarket, abt 5 minutes walk from the apartment. The walk from the apartment to the Croisette takes less than 10 minutes. Everything was as per our expectations and Jonathan proved to be a caring owner with useful tips about what to do and where to go. We enjoyed our stay a lot and would gladly rent it again, should we return to Cannes.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a very enjoyable week in Cannes. The apartment, is comfortable, light, airy and located in a quiet location. We were met by Jonathan the owner, who supplied us with all we needed to know about the apartment and the surrounding area. The railway station is only a little over five minutes away and a supermarket just down the road. There are many restaurants to choose from nearby in Cannes if you decide not to eat in.

Amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week in this glorious apartment and didn't want to leave, it was the best holiday property we have ever rented.

We were met by the charming owner Jonathan who made us feel so welcome and we felt that he really wanted us to enjoy our stay in Cannes. After a helpful introduction to everything in the apartment we just knew we had found the right place.

The bedrooms were spacious and had everything we needed and the bathrooms were spotlessly clean. The sitting room was much bigger than we expected and had super comfy chairs and sofas as well as a table and chairs. The kitchen was so perfect and had everything you could possibly want, even a Nespresso machine!

Comfy beds and extremely powerful showers all made it a five star accommodation.

It's in a great location just a ten minute walk to the beach with all the shops of Cannes nearby. There is a bakery and a supermarket around the corner.

We will definitely book this apartment again

Centrally but quietly situated in glamorous Cannes, famous for it's Film Festival and the glitterati, with some of the best shops in the world on your doorstep, just a few minutes walk from the Croisette, where you can stroll along and admire the beautiful yachts and sunsets... and just 'people-watch' from one of the (free) blue chairs, or enjoy the beautiful private or public beaches.

St Tropez (take a boat!), Grasse, Nice (explore the Flower Market and Old City) and Italy are all easily accessible by car or train.

Or explore the quaint old town of Cannes 'Le Suquet', the museums, antique and flower markets on foot or with the help of 'Le Petit Train', and have your photo taken on the red carpet of the Palais des Festivals.

For shopping the rue d'Antibes is HEAVEN! Very stylish shops, not necessarily expensive. For everyday needs there are a supermarket, boulangerie, bars, restaurants etc within 100 metres, and the food markets at Place Gambetta and Forville are a few minutes walk
