Luxurious Hotels in Cannes

Three words alone are enough to recommend Cannes: sun, sea and sand. The luxurious city on the south coast of France is a tourist’s paradise and is one of the most visited resorts on the Cote d’Azur. Situated in the French Riviera and on the Mediterranean coastline, the Cannes waterfront is an iconic image across the world and the Promenade de la Croisette, stretching out along the coastline, is a hub of activity throughout the summer.

Cannes hotels are amongst some of the most sought after in Europe and the more luxurious ones in particular attract visitors from all around the world. From hotels on the seafront to those slightly out of the city centre in the beautiful countryside, there is accommodation available to suit every visitor. Many people expect Cannes to be a place of indulgence, in which your money won’t go far, but there are a range of hotels to suit all budgets and good value accommodation in a convenient, central location is still available.

Deciding where to stay and what hotel in Cannes to select is largely down to what you want to do when you visit the city. A central location close to the Promenade de la Croisette is ideal for taking advantage of the vast amount of designer shops and intimate restaurants that are on offer. If you want to explore the natural beauty of the Provence, then a hotel on the outskirts of the city will allow you easy access to the natural delights that the French countryside has to offer.

There is plenty to do if you are planning on going on an adventure holiday in Cannes, with the nearby cities of Saint Paul, Nice and Antibes all charming in their own way and the historic cities are full of cultural heritage and stunning architecture. Slightly further afield is the principality of Monaco, with a cultural visit of the medieval hill-top village of Eze and the luxury casinos of Monte-Carlo covering both ends of the attraction spectrum on an enthralling day tour.

The top hotels in Cannes such as Hotel Martinez and Hotel Chateau De La Tour become highly sought after during the world-renowned Cannes Film Festival, taking place in the city annually duiring May. The festival is one of the world’s most historic and prestigious film festivals and is held at the Palais des Festivals et des Congress on the Promenade de la Croisette. Actors, directors and film fans alike descend on Cannes for a fortnight every spring to watch the latest films from Hollywood and across the world, as well as seeing the awards handed out and finding out who picks up the Palme d’Or.

The Mediterranean resort of Cannes is quite a spectacle and the crystal blue seas set against the clear blue skies is something to behold. From stunning architecture, to interesting museums and top restaurants that serve gastronomic delights, Cannes is a bustling city that can also act as an urban retreat within the beautiful French Riviera. Ideal for sightseers and star seekers, Cannes’ climate and array of attractions sees holiday makers visit the charming city in huge numbers every year.
