Bvd Carnot takes you to Cannes in 5 mins by bus (15 minutes all the way to the seafront and the festival hall). You can also walk it in 25 minutes.Taxi rank also 3 mins away on foot.

* just minutes away from the Cannes motorway exit
AROUND US: we are in Cannes in minutes and we are also surrounded by gorgeous villages and towns all within 20 minutes drive: Mougins, Valbonne, Grasse, Antibes, Nice, Vence, Cagnes sur Mer. Go a little further and you will find within 40 minutes gorgeous hill perched villages but also the coast with Monaco, Eze, Menton and Italy is just beyond...
LE CANNET : Le Cannet historic centre is a lovely place with all the advantages of a town, but still retaining a village feel. The town has an artistic history with impressionist painter Pierre Bonnard choosing it as his home. The Bonnard museum hosts regularly changing exhibitions of Bonnard and his contemporaries like Monet, Matisse and Cezanne. The rue Saint Sauveur is worth the short walk, with its many artisan shops, you'll find an eclectic mix of vintage furniture shop, glass maker, violin maker and worth a stop for a drink or meal at the quiet Place Bellevue overlooking Cannes.
EATING OUT FOR FOODIES: 5 mins on foot from your room is the 2 Michelin starred restaurant run by Bruno Oger. Bruno Oger also runs a very reasonable and excellent brasserie and bar from the same location. It's a favourite of ours! You'll eat an amazing 3 course meal for 29€ and you won't even need a taxi to take you home... There are plenty of other options in the historic centre, or if you prefer an outing in the centre of Cannes we can provide recommendations.
NOISE: we're lucky to be in the calmest area of town, however our narrow street is not completely pedestrian so you should still expect normal noise : the odd car and noisy scooter passing, the rubbish collection early in the morning, the street wash on Friday mornings, there is a school 50m away with small children walking to school at 8.20 (until 4 July). We can never predict street noise, sometimes guests tell us it was so quiet and they were right, sometimes guests tell us they had noise and they were right too.
