location

The French Riviera 

Long before it became the mecca of the sun-worshipping 21st Century tourist, the Riviera was popular among foreigners as a winter resort. 

Lord Brougham, the Lord Chancellor of England, was accustomed to the winter in Nice but in 1834 was forced by an outbreak of cholera in Provence to stay in Cannes. He liked it so much he built a house where he stayed until his death in 1868. 

Other famous Englishmen who made their home on the Riviera, were the writers Somerset Maugham in Cap Ferrat, Graham Greene in Antibes, and the film actor/writer, Sir Dirk Bogarde, who was President of the Cannes Film Festival in 1984, when he lived near Grasse. 

Another foreign colony was the Russian nobility, who until the Revolution in 1917, were regularly joined by the Imperial Court. Their legacy is a number of beautiful Russian Orthodox churches in Cannes, Nice and Menton. 

The Americans began to make there mark in the 1920s - Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford from the film world, Ernest Hemingway and Scott Fitzgerald, the writers, and the young Americans with Money. They introduced jazz, the music of Cole Porter and sunbathing. There was more jazz at the end of the second world war stimulated by the US Naval base: the Juan-les-Pins Jazz Festival dates from this period. 

In the 1930s many German artists in exile settled in Sanary-sur-Mer. Other communities of artists have been established in Vallauris, where Picasso revived the traditional craft of pottery and which now hosts a bi-annual International Festival of Ceramic Art (July to mid October), and in St-Paul-de-Vence, where James Baldwin, the American author lived for many years. 

Monaco, where fortunes have been lost and won on the gaming tables, still attracts a significant number of wealthy tax exiles. 


 

local amenities

Being in Central Cannes, you have all the amenities the town has to offer within easy reach. For those that enjoy shopping, the nearby Rue d’Antibes & Croisette offers an excellent choice of elegant boutiques. A pleasant walk through the old town brings you to the Marché Forville - a fantastic market selling fresh produce such as locally grown fruit & vegetables, cheese, cold meats and a delicious selection of bread and pastries, ideal if you would like to prepare meals in the apartment.

Beach lovers will be delighted by the long stretch of sandy shoreline, and the selection of private and public beaches on offer. Those looking for an active holiday can enjoy waterskiing, diving, snorkelling, and a wide variety of other water-sports – if you would like any of these pre-booked for you, this is something we would be delighted to arrange for you.

There are countless wonderful places to eat, to suit every taste– from local patisseries with a small café, to gourmet restaurants along the Croisette & in Palm Beach, overlooking the sea. The nightlife in Cannes also has something for everybody, including tiny cafés tucked away in the narrow cobbled streets of the Suquet, glamorous bars in the ‘Banane’, casinos and nightclubs.
