Activities

Most people's reason for coming to Cannes is to relax on the beach and soak up the sun and if you are looking for a private beach we highly recommend our favourite Mademoiselle Gray.

However in case your looking for other things to do in and around the area, here are a few suggestions.

Old Town - Le Suquet

The old part of Cannes, is well worth a visit. Parts of Notre Dame d'Esperance church date from the early 16th century. The views are lovely.

There are one or two nice restaurants on the rue Meynardier, I am not very keen on most of the restaurants in this part of the town.

Iles Lerins

The Iles Lerins off the coast of Cannes are delightful to visit and we highly recommend a trip over to them during your stay. There are two main islands the Ile Saint Marguerite and the Ile Saint Honrat.

The ile Saint Honrat is home to Lérins Abbey. To quote the Cannes Tourist Office: "The island was founded by Saint Honorat in the 5th century. It exudes an air of spirituality and boasts vestiges of the past (monastery, fortifications, chapels). The island is owned by a commune of Cistercian monks who grow vines and produce a reputable wine."

Also within the abbey is the La Tonnelle restaurant. A delightful restaurant set on the North side of the island.

Tennis

Tennis Montfleury
21 avenue Beausejour

W: Tennis Montfleury Web Site
T: +33 (0)4 93 43 33 87
E: tennismontfleury@gmail.com

This municipal tennis club boasts four hard cards and 3 clay courts. Six of the seven courts are lit. The facilities are truly excellent

The courts can be booked over the phone and are available as follows:

From 1st September to 30th June:
Monday to Saturday: 09:00 - 20:00
Sunday and bank holidays(jours feries): 09:00 - 19:00

From 1st July to 31st August:
Monday to Saturday: 08:00 - 21:00
Sunday and bank holidays(jours feries): 08:00 - 20:00

A good selection of bikes at reasonable prices

An early morning ride around the bay and the Cap d'Antibes is a lovely way to start the day!

See their web site for opening times

Golf

Country-Club de Cannes-Mougins

175 av. du Golf, route d'Antibes, Mougins

Tel: +33 (0)4 93 75 79 13

golf-cannes-mougins.com

The Country-Club de Cannes-Mougins is one of the region's most challenging courses and is situated 8.8 kms (5.5 miles) from the apartment. The course was reconfigured in 1976 but originally dates from the 1920's. The course is noted for the olive trees and cypresses that adorn the flat terrain and its many water hazards and technical challenges. The Cannes-Mougins Open is on the PGA European Tour. The course is open to anyone with proof of handicap and greens fees are €150 per person. Reservations are recommended.

Gym and Jogging

Majestic Hotel
10 Blvd Croisette

If you are looking for a gym the Majestic Hotel just in front of the apartment has a gym open to non residents. It is not cheap at €45 per session.

Fitness Park
Place de la Gare
T: +33 (0)4 89 37 41 65
This is a very well equipped gym.

Running
Cannes and the surrounding area is wonderful for early morning runs and jogs. I have laid out a 5km run and posted it here.

Spa and Beauty Treatments

Five Seas Hotel Spa
Rue Notre Dame

Tel: +33 (0)4 63 36 05 08

Web Site

Five Seas Hotel is located 120 meters from the apartment. They offer a range of beauty and massage treatments and their most recent list of treatments can be downloaded here.

Prices are from €155.00 per person.

For more details contact Air Odyssey on +33 (0)4 93 48 39 26 or visit their web site at www.air-odyssey.com

Monaco

Monaco has a lot offer for a day out from Cannes and is only an hour or so away on the train.

The second smallest country in the world packs a lot in:

  • Musee Oceanographique de Monaco
  • The Motor Museum
  • The Exotic Gardens
  • The Casino Square
  • The Palace
  • The Japanese Gardens
  • The Casino

Villa Ephrussi

The Villa Ephrussi and its gardens is one of the most magnificent villas on the whole of the Cote d'Azur. The Villa Ephrussi was built in the early part of the 20th century with construction commencing in 1905 and Baroness Beatrice Ephrussi (nee de Rothschild) moved in in 1912.

The villa, both exterior and interiors, and the gardens are equisite and are well worth a visit.

The villa is 30 minutes on foot from Beaulieu sur Mer station and there is also parking at the villa

Cannoeing

Canoeing in the Baie de Cannes - what fun. Canoes can be hired at the Palm Beach end of the Croisetter for a very reasonable €35 per day from Kayak iles Lerins.

Running

If you are a runner it does not get much better than running along the Croissette in Cannes. My usual 5 kms route can be found here. For something longer Theoule and back is almost exactly a half marathon!

Restaurants

As well as wonderful places to relax the private beaches are great places to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner. We list our two favourites first but to be honest all of the private beaches have upped their game over the past couple of years and we have had good to great experiences at all of the ones we have tried. As opening times vary through the year please check their web site for details of opening times.

Directly next to La Goeland, so the second beach next to the Plage Publique, this is a great beach restaurant with lovely food and service. It is particularily good for vegetarians and vegans with good plant based choices on the menu. A great wine list with a number of wines by the glass including Whispering Angel sister wine to the amazing (and amazingly priced) Garrus. Highly recommended.

The first private beach as you walk away from the Majestic. This is a family run beach. Breakfast is lovely (see above). The beach restaurant has been completely refurbished in the winter of 2020. The service is friendly and the food reasonable though not that varied if you are planning on spending every day on the beach here. We feel it has slightly lost its way at the moment and that a revamp of the menu is needed to bring it up to date.

This restaurant is open almost the whole year round.

Changed again but they still don't get it. They have got rid of the dividers on the beach, we had to pay for the beach in advance (in case we ran off without paying I assume) and somehow did not feel welcome. The restaurant now appears to be serving just sushi and puddings, very odd. There are better beaches. Try Plage de Martinez, Miramar Plage or Rado Beach!!

Of course, there is the Palm d'Or in The Martinez with two Michelin stars. We have not yet eaten there, and I am not sure we will! The menu looks pretentious. To quote the Michelin online guide "In the sumptuous Art Deco setting of the Hotel Martinez, diners look down on La Croisette from a gastronomic peak. The chef creates spectacular cuisine that is sunny and creative, justly deserving of a Palme d'Or!" Need I say more!

The train line along the coast makes almost all the towns of the Côte d'Azur very accessible. Monaco is about an hour and 15 minutes by train but the scenary is so lovely that the journey passes quickly.

Shops

The main shopping in Cannes is on the Croisette and the rue d'Antibes and the streets running between them. Though there are some interesting shops to be found on the streets to the north of the rue d'Antibes. It is bounded on the West by rue du Marechal Joffre and on the East where the rue d'Antibes meets the Boulevard d'Alsace.

Where to start? Cannes has it all. From the most famous names in Haute Couture - you will find Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent, to name a just few, on the Croisette. There are high end jewellers (like Cartier on the Croisette. The famous rue d'Antibes, which is only 50 metres from the apartment is home to countless well know shops and small boutiques alike offering everything from "High Street" fashion (Zara), small specialist shoe shops, of which there are many, to works of art, antiques, home furnishings and beach wear.

Also on the rue d'Antibes you will find FNAC and Darty.

You can find almost everything in Cannes if you search long enough! Just let yourself wander around the streets and you will be amazed at what you can find. Happy shopping!

The first two weeks of July and January are particularly good times for shopping as this is when Cannes holds its annual sales. There are some extraordinary bargains to be had.

Markets

Marché Forville
Absolutely not to be missed is the Forville market (Place du Marché Forville; every morning except Mon). To quote Anthony Peregrine of The Daily Telegraph, "Here is a vast Provençal larder where asceticism comes to die. If you are self-catering or planning a picnic, then this is the spot to head for." There are a myriad of cafes around the market including an outpost of Copenhagan Coffee Lab so why not set off early, take breakfast and spend some time in one of the most splendid markets I have seen in my 40 year of visiting and living in France. This is not just a fruit and vegetable market. There is every food stuff imaginable, fresh pasta, dried spices and herbs, fish (of course), a salt stall, a mushroom seller and fresh flowers. This market has to be seen to be believed.

This is generally considered the best market on the Cote d'Azur. Every day except Monday.

Place Gambetta
On the Place Gambetta, every day except Monday (and as of summer 2018, there are a few fruit and veg stands on a Monday as well) there is wonderful market for fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese, fish, dried meats and much more.

The Place Gambetta is the place to do food shopping.

Supermarket Monop

Opening Hours:

The supermarché Mon’op is situated at 34 rue Hoche on a brand new, as of May 2018, site. This supermarket is lovely and has all you need for your stay in Cannes. Open every day. Probably more expensive than the larger supermarkets but very convenient.
