Experience the luxury of Cannes

Cannes is famous for its beautiful, luxurious buildings. Villa Rothschild, with its impressive garden, is just one of these buildings. Have a leisurely stroll about and enjoy the peace and quiet. The picturesque Le Suquet is an old neighbourhood in Cannes and was once a small fishing village. Wandering through its narrow streets is a charming way to pass the time. A tip from us: it’s also a great place to find fantastic and affordable dining. The real French Riviera can be found on the boulevard Le Croisette. This boulevard is 2 kilometres long and lined with lovely palm trees. It is also where you’ll find the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, where the world-famous Cannes film festival is held each year.

"The first film festival here was held in 1946. That’s more than 70 years ago."
