The French Riviera is synonymous with glamour, but Cannes takes things to a glossy new level. Bathed in the dual glows of the sun and conspicuous wealth, it’s a playground for the rich and famous – and for anyone who can’t resist a bit of old school, European glitz. Designer boutiques line the streets, expert chefs turn out impeccably dressed dishes for even more impeccably dressed diners, while the scenic grandeur of the coast, where super-yachts bob on the azure water, completes the picture. Celebrities may descend on the area for the prestigious film festival, but everyone else is always welcome to embrace the high life in this Riviera gem. Cannes holiday rentals will certainly help anyone feel like one of the pampered locals.
Holiday apartments in Cannes offer more than just a place to bed down. Each one is a home from home – a place you can truly call your own during your visit. Instead of being cooped up in a hotel guestroom, you can enjoy spacious living areas, separate bedrooms and a fully decked-out kitchen where you can enjoy breakfast each morning, or cook an occasional meal. The latter will certainly save on the pennies, as eating out all the time in Cannes can take a big bite out of the holiday budget. Using ebookers, you can find Cannes holiday rentals to suit you, with some located steps away from the beach.
Want to people-watch in style? Then put on your coolest threads and take a long walk along the Promenade de la Croisette. Lined with languid palm trees and overlooking the seafront, this boulevard is where locals and visitors alike come to shop, play and ogle each other. There are more chic boutiques than you can shake a credit card at, while the views across the sea are simply priceless. Then, you can take to the sands of Plage Mace, the public beach which offers a cost-effective way of enjoying the Riviera sunshine. Looking for a gloriously show-offy selfie opportunity? Take a snap outside the Palais des Festivals, known the world over as the setting for the impossibly glamorous Cannes Film Festival. Fancy a break from all the seafront extravagance? One of the other essential things to do is to head into Le Suquet, the old town, where you can lose yourself in quaint streets and discover family-run eateries and cute little shops.
Cannes is a place to promenade, people-watch and gaze out at the sea – as such, you’ll spend most of your time on your own 2 feet. While buses are available, you could happily spend your whole trip without bothering with public transport. However, there is a lot of Riviera to explore, and it might be worth hiring a car to make trips out to other glittering hotspots like Nice and Antibes.
