Introduction

Cannes Sea View

 A key destination on the French Riviera, internationally known for its Film Festival, Cannes has built its worldwide reputation on the quality and range of services it offers visitors: fine sandy beaches, the Isles of Lérins, four-star hotels on La Croisette and luxury shops, its exceptionally beautiful bay and flower gardens... 

 The prestigious artistic events that punctuate the year, major conventions and festivals that set the pace for its dynamic economy, have in no way altered the incomparable charm of this Provençal town and its magical environment.

Historical notes

Cannes riches and renown are due largely to the misfortune of a past Lord Chancellor of England (1830 – 1834) Lord Brougham (who designed the four wheeled one horse carriage which bears his name, the brougham).

 He was on his way to Nice in 1934 when he contracted Cholera which prevented him from crossing the cordon sanitaire and forced him to rest in Cannes. The place, then a small fishing village, pleased him so much that he built himself a house and remained there until he died 34 years later.

 Lord Brougham exchanged the Winter fogs of London for the Mediterranean sunshine and his example was soon followed by the English aristocracy. Today of course, it remains a popular holiday destination at any time of the year, not just for the British but for people from all over the world.

Cannes Festivals

The Cannes Festivals are world famous. Amongst the most famous are, the International Record and Music Market in January, International Market for Television in April & May and of course, the International Film Festival in May – the most spectacular artistic gathering on the Riviera.

Palais des Festivals

Ideally located on the Croisette, near the old harbour, opposite the sea and one of the most beautiful views in the world, the Palais des Festivals is just a few minutes away from most of the hotels and luxury hotels. The proximity enables all visitors go to the Palais on foot from their hotels while enjoying the beauty of the city and its bay without the problem of morning traffic jams encountered in big cities. In the evenings, it is a real pleasure to be able to relax, go for a stroll, dine out and perhaps continue the night among friends in a city of a size enabling it to maintain a friendly atmosphere.
