Everyone has heard of the Cannes Festival. However, Cannes is also a holiday destination with lots of different attractions. The Le Suquet district is the heart of the old town, home to the fortress-castle and its church, as well as the La Castre museum with its ethnographic collection. Off the coast, inside the Fort Royal on Île Sainte-Marguerite, you can also visit the Musée de la Mer. All the islands surrounding Cannes (Sainte Marguerite, Îles de Lérins, Saint-Honorat) are nature reserves in their own right, while the town’s markets play host to all the scents and flavours of Provence. A large yacht Club and nautical centre also offer a range of year-round aquatic activities (sailing, diving, windsurfing, regattas). In terms of well-being, Cannes is a paradise for spas and thalassotherapy treatments. Golfing enthusiasts are also spoilt for choice with a number of golf courses competing with each other in the elegance stakes! Nor has Cannes neglected its younger visitors, who can enjoy several parks and squares dotted around the town. With its shopping, gourmet restaurants and nightlife, Cannes is truly the place to experience the high life! Looking for an alternative to a hotel? An apartment with a sea view? A more secluded house? Or a villa with a swimming pool? POPLIDAYS works closely with estate agents to offer you the very best holiday rentals.
