About the property

2 bedroom apartment (sleeps 5), 2 shower/bathrooms, large terrace

This beautiful two bedroom flat is located in the upmarket Croix des Gardes hill, in Cannes.

It is part of a gated complex , with a resident porter, and comprises several low built buildings with gardens and two pools with diving boards, one of which is an infinity pool. The spacious living area includes a dining area and a comfortable lounge with an L shaped sofa and a flat screen TV (numerous channels). There are two bedrooms (both en-suite- one with a bath, another with a shower and two WC). Bedroom 1 has a double bed and bedroom 2 has a bunk bed with an additional pull-out bed. The flat is on the first floor and benefits from a beautiful sea view which can be admired from the lounge, kitchen and master bedroom. Outside, the terrace has dining furniture for six and two lounger chairs. The terrace is covered and benefits from electric awnings and can therefore be enjoyed all year round. Air conditioning in all areas of the flat. One underground parking space. Internet available.

The flat is available for holiday lets and lettings during exhibitions and festivals (eg MIPIM, Film Festival, Advertising Film Festival etc).

Shopping: There are many supermarkets near the flat, the local Casino supermarket is 4.3km or circa 10 minute drive from the flat, with a Leclerc a further two minutes away at the shopping estate opposite Mandelieu Airport. There are local shops where one can buy milk and croissants in the morning which is a four minute drive from the flat.

The one thing to take advantage of are the local food markets. The two in Cannes (Forville and Gambetta) are absolutely amazing, due to the great choice of fresh food/ cheeses/olives/fish/meat and pasta. These are open every day. In addition you have a market in Cannes La Bocca.

And of course there are clothes and jewellery shops on the Rue D'Antibes and La Croisette.

Outdoor activities:

The flat is situated in Croix des Gardes, which is a nature reserve with varied flora (including mimosa trees) and beautiful views of the sea and the mountains, and ideal for dog walks. There is also a 'Parcours Sante' (health/exercise course) with various activities.

There are of course the beach and pool activities (swimming, windsurfing, diving, banana boat, water ski, etc.), generally from May to September.

In a 30 km radius, you will also find go-karting and high ropes centres, as well as zoos and wolf or bison reserves

Finally, do not forget to go to one of the open-air cinemas in the summer, whether in Monaco, Villefranche or Mouans Sartoux, or one of the open air concerts in Le Suquet (usually end of July).

Museums and villages: There are many museums in the Cote d'Azur, including Matisse, Bonnard, Fernand Leger, Picasso, Chagall.

There are also lovely villages to visit, such as Gourdon, Moustiers, Castellane, etc.

Why Caroline Landau chose La Croix des Gardes

a beautiful view of the sea in the middle of a protected natural reserve; a quiet setting, yet within 15 minutes walk of the beach; two swimming pools in the complex with views of the sea which are rarely very busy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

we just want to thank you for a great week in your

wonderful flat! We all had a very good time, and managed to visit several different beaches

and went to Antibes, Ezé , Cap D´ail, amongst others.

The cleaner was very helpful as was the caretaker for the complex.

Excellent holiday in Cannes,

  • 4 of 5

Being a family of four with teenage children we fully enjoyed our stay in the apartment in Croix-des-Gardes. The apartment was stylish,well-equipped ,clean, and with a great view from the beautiful terrace. The staff from the property were being very helpful, and the two pools there most enjoyable.

In our rented car we visited several beautiful beaches and villages along the coast,

and for any shopping we also needed the car.

We would at any time fully recommend this apartment for a relaxed, stylish holiday

in Cannes.

Henrik Brendstrup, Copenhagen.
