A mention of Cannes instantly conjures up an image of A-list Hollywood stars and a vision of glamour, which is not a bad guess. The eponymous Cannes Festival is held at Palais des Festivals - a stone’s throw away from Citadines Croisette Cannes, 3-star serviced residence. Stay here and immerse yourself in a romantically subtle environment.
Near the residence, also find the Cannes train station - your starting point to a string of discoveries. Make your way to attractions like Villa Domergue, which showcases a blend of Art Deco and Mediterranean gardens. Every summer, the villa is open to the public.
Given its glittery charm and panoramic sea views, it might come as a surprise that Cannes was once a humble fishing village. La Croisette stretches along the shore of the vast azure Mediterranean Sea. This prominent boulevard is lined with high-end shops, restaurants and five-star hotels.
For a change of scene, head to the Lérins Islands, located off the French Riviera. Île Saint-Honorat is home to Cistercian monks and offers monastic produce such as honey and wine. An aura of mystery surrounds Île Sainte-Marguerite, whose royal fortress allegedly once held the Man in the Iron Mask.
If in need of some quiet, hide by the harbour and duck into the little streets of Old Town. Or, head back to Citadines Croisette Cannes where you can rejuvenate in air-conditioned rooms or relax in our enclosed garden.
