Your perfectly located villa in Cannes for your events and your holidays.

At the top of Boulevard Carnot, just steps away from the new Bonnard museum, the villa is linked to the Palais des Festival and Croisette beaches by the direct fast-track bus #1 in 15 minutes. There is a convenient taxi service for the Croisette (10mn) right at the foot of the villa.
The villa does not have a parking space attached to it but there are 5 free and pay parking lots around ; such as free Parking de Königstein at the bottom of the rue de Königstein (30 spots), and the pay parking des Orangers (20 spots (first hour free) : 0.6€ per hour

At night after the bustle of Cannes go back 'home' to the charming village villa and enjoy the quiet of the Provencal garden.

This is indeed a true hidden gem in the heart of the lovely village of Le Cannet o...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were met at the exact time for entry to the house and afterwards any problems or queries were immediately attended to by Patrice, the local agent for the owner.

The property is even more delightful than any description or photo as its position and ambiance cannot easily be described. Everything we needed or wanted was provided in the modern kitchen and throughout.

The location in Le Cannet itself is excellent. Close enough to Cannes and its railway station by public transport and within easy reach of all surrounding towns and beaches. Le Cannet itself is extremely peaceful with little through traffic yet very well served with shops of all sorts and excellent restaurants, especially those in the square above the village overlooking the bay of Cannes itself.

The house itself with terrace and garden with olive tree and vines made for a most enjoyable stay for all.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 May 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Our group of 6 chose to stay in Le Cannet in August 2014 while doing business in Grasse.

The hustle and bustle of Cannes was fun, but it was great to retreat to the quiet streets of Le Cannet each day.

The neighborhood is perfectly French - butcher shops, pastry shops, grocery, a local cinema, and some great restaurants and stores all within just a few blocks. Patrice (the manager) arrived on time to our check-in/check-out, and he was a pleasure to meet.

There's also a great list of recommended restaurants and local guides provided by the owner to ensure you can make the most of your stay.

Lastly - the garden! It's such a big plus with this house. Perfect to BBQ in the evening and soak in the sun and fragrant smells of this region. I give this villa a 10 out of 10 in terms of quaint, convenient, and authentic French Provence lifestyle.

Management response:

Thank you so much Pierre for the very positive review. I hope to see you again soon.You are welcome any time. more

Additional amenities & feature info
The villa has been in the owner's family for over 3 centuries and has been added to in the course of centuries.

It is named Le Cros and has given its name to the neighbourhood.

The owner of the villa is a descendant of the 140 Ligurian families who, in the 15th century, came from Italy at the invitation of the monks of the Iles de Lerins (off Cannes) to cultivate their orange-trees.

The genealogical tree on Place Bellevue still bears testimony to the adventure of the foundation of the village : the name of the owner is to be found onone of the orange tiles that line Place Bellevue.

The villa still retains its 17th century charm with
- its 'tommettes' (red tiles)
- its old stone fountain dated 1867
- its ancient stone 'lavoir' (wash-place)
- its old wine press wher...
