Iconic Cannes, home to one of the most famous film festivals, Cannes is a gem that begs to be explored. Boasting more than 300 days of sunshine per year, Cannes combines two different atmospheres. One is the well-known glamour of La Croisette home to the city’s luxury shops, beaches and Palais des Festival, the other is enchanting Le Suquet, the old city maze of small pedestrian streets, home to classic Mediterranean restaurants and authentic Cote d’Azur vibe.
Where to Stay
To truly feel emerged in Cannes, stay at the Intercontinental Carlton Cannes, the landmark hotel of the area. The Carlton’s belle époque façade gives you a hint of the elegance that can be found inside. The classic sophistication of the rooms is totally in line with the brightness of the city colours. The hotel has a modern flair while still keeping its old-school elegance and as soon as you enter the lobby, you feel at ease.
The staff and the service are the real strength of this property. Surrounded by local people at your service, you will experience the most comfortable atmosphere you’ve ever seen in a 5 stars property.
One of the most famous beaches on La Croisette is home the private Carlton Beach Club. This means you can relax on a sunbed perched on white sand beside the twinklingly Mediterranean Sea for a few hours before a shopping session or an excursion. When you return from your outing, enjoy Chef Laurent Bunel’s lobster and champagne menu on the Carlton Restaurant’s large terrace overlooking the water and savour the spectacular sunset.
The ideal location of the Intercontinental Carlton Cannes offers you the opportunity to go for one-day excursions to glamorous Monaco and Saint-Tropez. You can also spend a day in Provence viewing the lavender fields and explore the famous medieval villages of Saint Paul de Vence, Mougins or the worldwide perfume capital Grasse. You can also easily combine sea and ski as ski stations from the French Alpes are located only 1.30 hours away, this makes for a very unique experience.
Don’t miss Lerins Island and especially Saint Honorat island. This island belongs to the Cistercian monks since the 16th century and they produce their own wine. The Carlton’s concierge team can organize a very exclusive wine tasting on the island, a quick 15min by shuttle boat from the hotel as well as a nice lunch in their fabulous restaurant before you get back to the city for some shopping.
