Cannes, France

Is it a villa or a grand hotel? Is it a yacht or a cruise ship? A movie set or a scene of everyday life? A beach or a high-society salon? When you visit Cannes for the first time, you won't be able to resist asking yourself these questions because this sumptuous Côte d'azur resort challenges our notions of normal life.

After Paris, Cannes is the most visited place in France, even though the fashionable Croisette seaside promenade, the International Film Festival, the cocktails on the beach in exclusive clubs, the grand hotels and the casinos are intended for a fortunate elite. Despite all this, Cannes can be really exciting for those who, for once in their lives, want to feel like a VIP in an exceptional seaside resort.

However, as an alternative to the opulence and high society, you don't have to go far to explore the areas that preserve the place's original fascination: for example, you can explore the small markets at the old port in the ancient Le Suquet quarter, find a small spot on the free beach along the Boulevard du Midi, take nature excursions in pristine areas like the Esterel forest or play water sports because Cannes is also one of the most renowned boating areas in the south of France.
