Until the early 19th Century, Cannes was just a small fishing village. Now it’s one of the most glamorous places in the world, which see celebrities flock to it during its world famous Cannes Film Festival. Not surprisingly, the fishing shacks of the past have been replaced with huge villas, luxury resorts, divine beaches and expensive yachts, which all contribute to the star power of the city.
The most famous areas of Cannes have to be the Croisette and the Palais des Festivals. Nearby here are some 50 hotels, which include properties specialising in romantic stays, business hotels and family hotels, many offering meeting rooms equipped with high speed internet and childcare. Mostly you’ll find accommodation around the four star range.
Every May the Palais des Festivals hosts the Cannes International Film Festival, and the many celebrities that descend on the town will undoubtedly pay a visit to the Promenade de la Croisette, the luxury boulevard flanked by palm trees and expensive shops. West of the Palais des Festivals is the district of Le Suquet, a charming old neighbourhood known for its picturesque streets.
The centre of Cannes, with its luxury shopping, is just as glamorous as La Croisette. The area has around 40 properties, with plenty of two, three and four star hotels to choose from. Rest and relax and live like a star by choosing a hotel with spa, pool and room service.
If you’re looking to spend some money during your stay, get over to the famous shopping street in Cannes, the Rue d'Antibes. Explore the huge shopping mall, Galerie Gray d’Albion and peruse the designer shops, jewellers and boutiques.
North of Cannes you will find the culinary centre of Mougins. The area has about 15 hotels, including properties that specialise in romantic and business stays. The town of Mougins is the gastronomic centre of the region and has dozens of top restaurants. The most famous eatery, Le Moulin de Mougins, located in an old mill.
