It’s not just when the annual Film Festival rolls in to town every May when Cannes is oozing glitz and glamour. This coastal town, with it’s never ending blue skies and mild winters is a year round destination where you can enjoy the finer things in life in an incredibly beautiful setting on the French Riviera.

Cannes is just a small town, which makes it perfectly easy to stroll around and absorb in the Mediterranean air and lavish surroundings. On the celebrated La Croisette, designer shops and outstanding restaurants decorate the beautiful promenade whilst life buzzes with ambling local families and visitors alike. Head up to the Palais des Festivals where all the film festival action takes place and keep your eyes peeled for the big stars. A wander around Cannes’ food markets drinking in the sumptuous smells of the fine local produce will get bellies rumbling for the delicious Provencal flavours. What is perhaps most charming about Cannes is that amongst all the glamour, day to day life of the locals continues and still the local fishermen head out to sea everyday to get their catch, almost oblivious to their plush surroundings.

Situated both on the seafront and nearby to beautiful French countryside and mountains, all manner of leisure activities are ready to try in Cannes. The advantageous location near other French Riviera towns makes Cannes a great destination to explore other stunning areas such as Nice and Monaco.
As well as the film festival, Cannes is also famous for its cuisine and gourmet dining options that will satisfy all tastes. Traditional Provencal specialities including bouillabaisse, ratatouille and aioli are always featured on the menu, as well as many creative fish dishes, all of which can be paired alongside fine French wines.

The nearby Nice airport has flights to all major European cities and transport across the whole of the French Riviera is incredibly easy. Elegant hotels make for great accommodation, and special event venues can come in all manner of styles from hotels to restaurants to yachts.
This small seaside town where the sun shines down on the mega yachts in the harbour and the seafront promenade glitters with luxury and exquisite restaurants is a fine location for any kind of trip.
