With its soft sandy beaches and chic shopping streets, Cannes is a coveted destination for a romantic getaway or a trip with friends. Les Collectionneurs offer a complete array of charming hotels and restaurants to help you start planning your holiday.
Cannes is easily accessible by train as well as plane from Cannes-Mandelieu Airport or Nice-Côte d'Azur Airport, located about 30 km away. The so-called "Provençal Motorway," the A8, also connects the city. Surrounded by the Estérel Range and the Juan Gulf, Cannes enjoys a truly privileged position. World renowned for its film festival, this Mediterranean locale plays host every May to the elite of the movie industry on its Croisette promenade, in addition to its multitude of other claims to fame. Away from the floodlights, this charming town along the Riviera is replete with authentic spots to enjoy a wander.
Overlooking the Old Port, the Suquet district has developed around the former Medieval citadel. Be sure to make a bee-line for its steep lanes and marvel at the historical monuments that leap out, such as the Suquet Tower, the Chapel of Sainte-Anne or the Church of Notre-Dame-d'Espérance. From this historical village setting, a panoramic view unfolds over the entire city of Cannes; sunset offers the most spectacular vistas. Nestled at the base of the old town, find the Forville open-air market with its stands overflowing with fruit, vegetables, cheeses and spices as if to invite passers-by to a sensorial tour of Provence.
Travellers shouldn't leave without strolling along the world-renowned boulevard de la Croisette promenade. This extensive pedestrian promenade lined by sumptuous villas, luxury shops and premier Belle Époque era hotels skirt the seashore until reaching the Palais des Festivals. From this iconic institution, visitors can pass by the Rothschild Villa, which today houses the city's library. This striking residence, set amongst remarkable gardens, is a testament to the French Riviera's holiday architecture. Atop the hill, the Croix-des-Gardes Park, an ideal spot for a forest walk, offers breathtaking views over the Bay of Cannes and the Lérins Islands.
While this city of cinema is all lit up during the summer holiday season, visiting Cannes all year round remains a very pleasant experience. The city's quality of life and Mediterranean climate encourage a relaxing stay whether with friends or a partner. For their holidays, travellers can discover a selection of outstanding establishments offered by Les Collectionneurs. These charming hotels provide their guests with a fantastic wellness programme throughout their stay. Subtly and authentically decorated, the spacious comfortable rooms and suites all feature beds of the highest quality. All mod cons are available, with a high-speed Internet connection and flat-screen television. The fully-equipped bathrooms come with either a bath or a shower, depending on guests' preferences. These establishments lay out an enchanting setting that associates authenticity of the venue with a contemporary flair. During a romantic weekend trip, couples will appreciate a superior-grade double room or else a suite with a deck and private Jacuzzi. Families travelling with children have the opportunity to stay in specially appointed family rooms. In order to facilitate travel preparations, some establishments propose a babysitting service upon request.
To replenish one's energy during a getaway to Cannes, travellers will appreciate time spent relaxing in the Turkish bath or alongside the outdoor pool. Some establishments on the list also offer care packages and massages within a unique setting, with a sea view or surrounded by vegetation.
Ideally located on the Mediterranean shoreline, Cannes is a gateway to an excursion at sea. The Lérins Islands off the coast of the Bay of Cannes are easily accessible by boat. Sainte-Marguerite Island is home to a Vauban-esque fort set in the middle of its pine forest where the Man in the Iron Mask was held. Saint-Honorat Island with its abbey also has a rich historical heritage. During a getaway in the vicinity of Cannes, travellers will love discovering the coastline heading towards Antibes and then onto Nice, with the Bay of Angels and the French Riviera stretching out between them. Heading west, the craggy coast zigzagging towards Saint-Raphaël is definitely worth the trip. The countryside further inland has plenty of picturesque villages to admire, some of which have seduced painters and writers, as exemplified by Saint-Paul-de-Vence.
When on holiday in Southeastern France, travellers can book a hotel in the Provence-Alpes-French Riviera region, from among the selection offered by les Collectionneurs. These establishments will be pleased to guide their guests to sites off the beaten track or sporting activities to take part in, such as hiking, cycling, kayak trips, golf and horseback riding. In Cannes and its surrounding area, a wide array of destinations combining sea and nature are available to travellers.
With French gastronomy and Italian culinary influences, Cannes restaurants harmoniously blend a myriad of flavours. Provençal culinary specialities are a fundamental part of the local culture. Profoundly attached to their region, local chefs featured by les Collectionneurs enhance the local seafood with vegetables grown in the neighbouring countryside. During a gourmet getaway to Cannes, travellers will also discover locally-grown wines, from the Bandol vineyards to the Côtes de Provence. This passion for an authentic regionally-anchored cuisine, coupled with bold and creative culinary statements, are what restaurateurs are offering to guests, in an absolutely charming decor.
