Be charmed by Cannes

Famed for its annual film festival and glamourous celebrity lifestyle – the superstar of the French Riviera is well worth a visit. Its dazzling promenade, golden sandy beaches and year-round Mediterranean climate create the perfect backdrop for holidays in Cannes.

The famous Film Festival might take place each May, but Cannes sparkles all year round. Explore the most prominent street, boulevard de la Croisette with its exclusive boutiques and restaurants. Visit the old quarter of Le Suquet – get lost in its maze of winding lanes and immerse yourself in the excitement of the Forville Market. Or head to the Iles de Lerins for a change of scenery, as you hike through the pine and eucalyptus forests.
