A charming House in a quiet area of Cannes
Alex and Yasmine have a house straight from of a film set, the location is quiet but not too far from the hustle and bustle of Cannes centre, palm trees provide shade during the day along with the sails and high fencing and the house itself is typical of the Provincial style with thick white washed walls and high ceilings - coupled with a minimalist maritime feeling inside.
I don't want to review our holiday at any length as this has little to do with the house itself and the hospitality we received, needless to say it was very hot - early August - and everyday was spent exploring the local beaches as far away as Frejus and Monaco.
The house was a half hour brisk walk down to Cannes centre around the shaded back road of the old town, with shuttered buildings and small courtyard gardens, a little longer walk on the way back in the heat and up hill walking. A couple of bus stops were very local and took us into Cannes in 10 minutes ( a little expensive but worth it if staying all day in Cannes)
The location is a bit difficult on the sat nav and on a one way street but once found it is quiet and set back from the road with a lovely small private garden, the three bedrooms provided enough space for us all and extra provision can be arranged with extra beds.
With washing facilities and toilet on the ground floor and bathroom upstairs this really is the ideal house for families, but also would make a lovely retreat for a couple too who want to sit in the garden all day without stirring onto the beach or spending all their money in the exclusive shopping centre of Cannes.
All in all we had a great time, both at the house and away during the days on the beaches along the Riviera coast.
Would definitely recommend the house for anyone wishing to have a relaxing time or just to use as a base whilst exploring the region.
We will consider going back again another year, either with or without all of the kids.
