Description

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 Konigstein at the bottom of the rue de Konigstein (30 spots), and the pay parking des Orangers (20 spots (first hour free) : less than 1 euro 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 on the hill that overlooks Cannes but it is not as remote as Mougins!

This is indeed a true hidden gem in the heart of the lovely village of Le Cannet on the hill that overlooks Cannes but it is not as remote as Mougins!

The 17th Century village house has been refurbished over the last 10 years whilst still retaining a charming Provencal feel - the property has 3 well-designed modern bedrooms each with a bathroom and a well-equipped kitchen.

The villa is presented over 3 levels with a small sea view from the 2 upper level bedrooms. The 3rd bedroom is at garden level. All bedrooms can be made up either with a kingsize bed or 2 single beds.

The drawing room has a large Italian sofa bed with lovely views over the garden. The dining room with large dining table has convenient direct access to the kitchen. Both the kitchen and dining room open onto the patio.

The outdoor area is really lovely with suspended garden and terrace area.

The house has all up to date amenities to include air conditioning, Wifi, satellite TV with plasma screen.

There are plenty of local shops close by to include a boulangerie, a cheese-shop, the pharmacy, the post-office, plenty of cofee-shops, a small supermarket and even the cinema.

Former reviews

Review March 2012:Myself and two colleagues stayed in this beautiful villa whilst on a business trip in Cannes and the property absolutely surpassed our expectations!

Before we arrived in Cannes both Catherine and Patrice were extremely helpful with any queries we that we had about our upcoming trip and once we arrived at the villa we were received an extremely warm greeting by Patrice who showed us around the extensive property.

The villa's location is set back from central Cannes in a very peaceful French village location, but the seafront and all of the main attractions are easily reached by taxi in a few minutes, or alternatively there is a bus stop a 2 minute walk from the property. All of the rooms and external space of the property were very clean and well presented, with the whole property having recently undergone refurbishment to a very high standard. The downstairs bathroom is gorgeous!!!

When it came time for us to leave the villa Patrice was again on hand to help us with our departure.

Review July 2011: We stayed in this lovely, villa last week for a family holiday and it was perfect for us. The description and photos are entirely accurate but cannot convey the delightful feeling of seclusion and peace the villa offers. The large dining table was great for big family meals and the garden, sitting under the olive tree, was ideal for warm summer evenings. The property was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The manager was a delight, making us feel very welcome and offering help, if needed, through the week. The newly opened Bonnard Museum, less than 5 mins walk away, is highly recommended: 5 floors of fully air-conditioned, well presented material with an interesting local history. A car is really not necessary to stay in this house. The nearby bus & taxi services into Cannes are excellent.I would unreservedly recommend this house to friends, it is a beautiful place to stay

Further details indoors

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 where the owner's father, grand-father and great-grandfather used to walk the grapes from their land barefoot
- its rounded staircase and its confiturier (marmalade cabinet) to keep the orange preserves they had made from the bitter Bigarade oranges that grew (and still grow) in the garden.



Further details outdoors

You can buy anything you need from the shops and caterers on Boulevard Carnot.

A pharmacy, the post-office, the cinema and public library as well as an excellent baker and butcher are only 1 minute away.

If you do not feel like going out to expensive restaurants twice a day you may bring home some gourmet food and relax in the garden under the olive tree with a glass of Chablis !

Location description from owner

The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region

Located just 2 kilometres from sandy beaches and peaceful harbours, in the heart of seven gently sloping hills, Le Cannet, “France’s Madeira”, is a perfect base for easy and pleasant walks through a typical Mediterranean environment with pine-trees, olive-trees, mimosas, orange-trees and eucalyptus.

The ancient village of "Le Cannet" founded in 1041, between the Mediterranean Coast and Provence, is far from traffic but only a few minutes away from Cannes's prestigious "Croisette".

The peaceful charm of such surroundings will lead you to many touristy and/or professional discoveries. The town enjoys a breathtaking panorama over Cannes, extending from the Lerins Islands to the Esterel Mountains.

Your experience of Le Cannet is only limited by the time you spend there.

Culture and Folklore :

The orange tree "bigaradier":

Traditionally cultivated in Le Cannet, its flowers allow the manufacture of delicate perfumes, while its fruit is used to produce an excellent marmalade and a delicious orange wine.

The olive tree:

The fruit of this typical Mediterranean tree gives a balmy olive oil, and is also used to produce the "tapenade", a smooth and thick paste really appreciated in the south of France to go with “aperitif”.

Heritage :

Le Cannet holds a strong cultural and artistic heritage. The "Chapelle Notre Dame des Anges" the "Chapelle Saint-Sauveur" and "Eglise Sainte-Catherine", the Old Town, as well as the wall decorated by Peynet bear a living testimony to such a rich past. In the spring of 2011 the new International "Musée Bonnard" will open in Le Cannet.

Cannes

Located in the heart of the French Riviera, Cannes is without any doubt one of the most prestigious cities in the world.

Authentic sanctuary of prosperity, security, and quality of life, Cannes has truly earned its legendary reputation as a city where life is so wonderful.

Splendid surroundings, a luxurious setting, top-quality services, all contribute to make Cannes the ideal destination for luxury tourism.

With a remarkably high number of sunny days each year, its luxury hotels that are authentic wonders of their kind, its excellent restaurants, its casinos overflowing with colour, its sandy beaches and its magnificent bay, Cannes possesses the qualities which are envied by sea resorts and tourist destinations throughout the world.

The city is famous for its May International Film Festival, where in successive generations Elizabeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot and Madonna have dutifully stopped traffic to pander to paparazzi. The parade of starlets along the main thoroughfare, boulevard de la Croisette, feeds the world's front pages for two weeks and launches the vacation season.

The only free beach in the area is in front of the "Palais des Festivals et des Congrès"; the rest of the sand is divided into private strips belonging to the seafront hotels - with the famous Carlton Inter-Continental and Martinez hotels probably the best symbols of the town.
