About Elisabeth Dunning
I was brought up in Cannes and always dreamt of having an apartment in the magnificent “Le Californie”. I now live in England but I still I love Cannes as much now as I did then.
Elisabeth Dunning purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Elisabeth Dunning chose Californie Pézou
The situation of Le Californie is perfect: it is slightly up on a hill and therefore kept cool by the breeze and it has a magnificent view. It is just far enough away from the centre of town to be tranquil, yet the town centre and beach are within walking distance.
What makes this Apartment unique
Le Californie is one of the most magnificent "Belle Epoque" buildings in Cannes. This beautiful neo-classical buildingIt is set in the middle of 4 acres of well tended exotic gardens with plenty of places to sit and have a drink while admiring the view. It still retains its unique, sculptured façade and majestic entrance hall.

Living in a Palace - Can life get any better ?!
Owner Elisabeth has made the right investment here - Wowee! Fantastic suite.
It is absolutely the only place anyone should stay while in Cannes.
The palatial building was first a Palace in the late 1800’s then became a hotel in 1925, occupied by Germany during WWII and taken over by the American’s in 1947 becoming residential building for all the world to enjoy.
There are only great things to say about this location words can’t describe it. I probably took about 100 photos of the view of the ocean from the breakfast table & while lying in bed, location, its grounds and surrounding area are stunning.
Put it this way —
Even if you plan to stay in Nice or Antibes or Monaco - make this your home base - you’ll never want to leave.
Lovely apartment in quieter location.
This is an unusual and pleasant apartment in beautiful and tranquil grounds. It's ideal if you would rather stay in a residential area, away from central Cannes. It does take approx 45 mins to walk into town, some of it up or down hill but there are local hourly buses until early evening. The local area has some facilities and the closest beach with one or two bars and cafes, and some water sports, is about 15 min walk away. We had a good week just relaxing in the sun and the apartment grounds were lovely to sit in with a drink in the evenings.
very beautifuland and bright apartment!
LOVELY FLAT FOR A STAY IN CANNES
We've loved our stay in this property.
The situation is marvellous in a character building.
The flat is perfect for a stay of 2 people.
The view is wonderfull et the flat is so bright
The equipments are perfect
Congratulations to the owners
WE HOPE TO COME AGAIN IN THIS PROPERTY
Lovely apartment in a magnificent building with spectacular views.
This was a lovely place and the views from the windows were beautifully Mediterranean.
The facilities were just right for the two of us (apart from lack of a washing machine).
The main disadvantage was the bedlinen. A simple double duvet with a duvet cover would have sufficed. We weren't fans of red bedlinen, and the mix of blankets and bedcovers of different sizes was just a little antiquated.
Altogether an excellent find.
Affordable luxury in Cannes!
The Apartment was totally as described and the attention to detail that Elizabet had given with regard to the directions and access to this lovely home was excellent.. We would highly recommend this Apartment as an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful coastline although it is not ideally situated for anyone who has difficulty in walking.
However local public transport was very good, we used the local 6b bus to the station and were pleased that we took the coastal train to Monaco as the traffic there was horrendous. We would certainly recommend this Apartment to our friends as excellent value and September as a very good time to miss the crowds in this part of the world.
