Its name evokes red carpets, photographers’ flashes and pure glamour! We are thinking of the famous film festival that takes place here every year in the month of May, which brings together star directors and film stars from around the world, all competing for the coveted Palme d'Or. The city of Cannes is located along the coast in the bay that forms between Antibes and Mandelieu-La Napoule, and with almost 75,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities of the Alpes-Maritimes. Born a long time ago as a modest fishing village, it saw the arrival of wealthy Russian and English aristocrats in the 19th century, and with them the construction of most of the luxury palaces that are associated today with the city.
Nowadays, Cannes has become a tourist destination of choice, appreciated for its beautiful architecture and its lively nightlife. Multiple conferences and festivals are organized in the Palais des Festivals. Cannes boasts a major aviation industry, and even has its own space centre. Its Mediterranean climate and beautiful beaches make it all the more attractive. The city has a large train station where most TGV trains stop. Nice airport is only half an hour away by motorway. From the old port of Cannes, in the Suquet area, it is easy to go to one of the large islands of Lérins; Sainte-Marguerite or Saint-Honorat, located off the Bay of Cannes. It is here that the mysterious man in the iron mask was held prisoner during a turbulent period of the 17th century. For food-lovers, the choice is wide, ranging from charming bistros, lively cafes in the old town to luxury beach restaurants along the Croisette. Art and culture lovers should visit one of the well-preserved castles in the city, such as the Château Louis XIII, with its magnificent panoramic view to the Lérins Islands, or the Museum of the Sea on the island of Sainte-Marguerite. We have a wide range of properties for sale in Cannes, whether you are looking for a renovated duplex in the Suquet, a luxury apartment with sea view at Pointe Croisette or new modern housing in the quiet residential area of Le Cannet.
