Cannes Property-Buying Property in Cannes

French Riviera

Buying property in Cannes is definitely a top choice for our Attika clients. Cannes is a really fabulous city for many reasons and top of many people's list is the weather! The French Riviera boasts 300 days sunshine per year!!!! The winters tend to be very mild and the sunbathing season stretches out from the beginning of March until the end of October - meaning that you can enjoy your villa in Cannes or your apartment in Cannes all year long.

Cannes apartments - the lifestyle

Cannes has a lovely sandy beach stretching from one end of the city to the other bordered by its famous promenade "La Croisette". All along the beach is an abundance of chic restaurants, cafés and beach clubs where you can relax and enjoy some of the best and healthiest food that French cuisine has to offer. It is here that you can really savour the holiday atmosphere whilst enjoying a wonderfully crisp glass of Rosé wine and watching the world pass by.

If you choose to purchase a property in Cannes you will not be disappointed in the winter months either - it's a busy, happening town throughout the year and your favourite boutiques and restaurants will still be open outside the summer months, unlike in some of the smaller villages. This means that you can enjoy Cannes' Dolce Vita throughout the year and make the most of your Cannes property from January through to December.

For the ladies the best is yet to come…Shopping in Cannes!!!! In terms of ambiance and style, Cannes is one of the most pleasurable shopping experiences in the world. Along the ‘Crosiette’ you will find all of your favourite designer shops, Armani, Chanel, Gucci, Christian Dior to name but a few and if designer shops are not top of your list then Cannes offers a wonderful array of unusual boutiques, jewellery and clothes shops on the small side streets off the Crosiette and in the Old quarter of Le Suquet.

Architecture of apartments in Cannes

The city is also rich in aesthetic value with many of the properties in Cannes dating back to the Belle Époque period; the best example of this is the gorgeous Carlton Hotel which is well worth a visit.

A walk around Cannes old town or ‘Le Suquet’, (whose foundations date back to as early as the 14th Century) will transport you to an era that has been long forgotten. It is a maze of old stone houses and narrow streets that offers a taste of traditional France and for those of you that enjoy the local produce there is a wonderful weekly food market that is not to be missed.

Cannes seaside

For the seafarers amongst you Cannes boasts two ports where you will find every type of boat ranging from small traditional fishing boats to enormous and very cool super yachts belonging to the world's billionaires. For those of you thinking of buying a yacht to go with your pad on the Riviera then Cannes is host to an international boat show in October where you are sure to find a way to spend the odd few million euros!

For adrenaline junkies, Cannes offers a fantastic variety of water sports from jet skiing to the more serene parasailing and in the winter months it is possible to go to the local ski resorts - no more than one and a half hours away - for some Alpine fun and still be back on the Riviera for dinner. Most of the local ski resorts are easily accessible by car or indeed by coaches which leave from the city centre. If you are a golf enthusiast there are also three golf courses within a thirty minute drive of the city centre.

Glamorous Events in Cannes

The most famous event in Cannes is of course the Cannes Film Festival held every year in May at the Palais des Festivals when the rich and famous, the beautiful and the wanabees descend upon the town in droves to see and be seen. It is a truly amazing time to be in Cannes, there is an incredible buzz and it is perhaps the only place on earth where you can literally rub shoulders with the stars.What better place could there be to star spot than on your own private balcony in your central Cannes apartment ? 

The film festival is not the only event though, Cannes holds many congresses throughout the year making it a superb place for rental investment

Cannes really does have something to offer everyone, it really is the perfect place for a holiday home, a permanent move and of course for investment.

Where is Cannes?

Cannes is the privileged, glamorous, Mediterranean town located in the celebrated South-Eastern corner of France - also known as the Côte d’Azur. It is in the “department” of the Alpes Maritimes, also known as the “06” region.

Going East, you will reach Nice in approximately 30 minutes by car (passing Juan les Pins, Antibes, Cagnes sur Mer and Villeneuve Loubet on the way).

Cannes is very accessible and within a two hour flight of most European capitals such as Berlin, London, Madrid and Moscow. It is a very picturesque town with a lovely stretch of beach that is protected by the natural amphitheatre made up of the foothills of the Alps.

There is a very small airport in Cannes however this is no good unless you have a Private jet!!

There is however a large international airport in Nice which is a 30-40 minutes drive away from the city centre.
