Getting to the South of France is very easy as Nice features flights from all major European cities and there is also a direct flight from New York JFK Airport.
Nice is the fifth most populated city in France with a population of about 1 million people. It is located in the French Riviera, on the south-east coast of France. There are many fun things to do in Nice, including historic walking areas, visiting the Cathédrale Sainte-Réparate and enjoying many of the delicious restaurants. There are many beaches in Nice, ranging from pebble beaches to beautiful sandy beaches. You will also find beaches with great restaurants. The best beaches to check out are La Reserve, Villefranche and Coco Beach.
Cannes is a resort town on the French Riviera and it is famous for its international film festival. The Promenade de la Croisette is a prominent road in Cannes. It stretches along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea and is 2 km long. The mild Mediterranean climate brings lush palm tree line boulevards and visitors can enjoy long balmy nights in the summer. During the winter months, the climate provides the perfect conditions for cycling, running and sailing. Cannes is a city that the rich and famous have been coming to for over 150 years; it simply sparkles with charm and glamour, whilst the magnificence of the coastal promenade, La Croisette, and the belle époque buildings show its aristocratic history. The prestigious Film Festival of Cannes takes place annually in May and has been an important event for Cannes since it began in 1946. Drawing famous movie stars from all over the world to the glittering red-carpet gala, has earned the city an international reputation for promoting cinema and the art of filmmaking.
When it comes to sights seeing, Cannes is probably better known for its belle époque hotels and festival halls than its historical monuments. Yet if you head away from the red carpet and casinos to the old town of Le Squat, you'll find a touch of its medieval history. It is well worth visiting its 12th century church, Notre-Dame-de-l'Espérence and Tour de Mt. Chevalier. There are some beautiful views to be had over the coast from there also.
Cannes has several beaches to choose from, from non-smoking public beaches to glamorous private beach clubs with deckchairs, DJ's and flowing champagne. There are water sports galore, as well as beach volleyball courts that are busy long into the summer evenings.
The Ministry of Health in France provides up-to-date information regarding the cleanliness of beaches. The beaches and rivers are ranked from excellent (blue) to prohibited (pink), meaning that entering the water is strictly prohibited.
Unsurprisingly given its swanky reputation, Cannes has some seriously good dining on offer, catering for all budgets. Our concierge will be able to advise you on the best options but if you just want to wander until something strikes your fancy, Cannes is the town to do it in. The narrow street running up the hill to the old town has some really atmospheric restaurants, La Croisette boasts some brilliant terrace restaurants for people-watching, and Quai St. Pierre by the port is the place to head for a selection of seafood restaurants.
