Cannes, what can you say? We could mention the miles of sandy white beaches. We might talk about the high-end retail on offer and we could even put a word in about THAT film festival. Whatever you say about this part of the French Riviera, it’s hard to do it justice.
And that’s what makes Cannes so special. It’s not just the buzz of Cannes Film Festival or the special atmosphere around the Monaco Grand Prix. It simply has it all. And by all I mean the stunning coastal views, enjoyed from some of the world’s most luxurious villas.
Jump in your car and take a drive north. As you cruise up the hill to Super Cannes, also known as the Beverly Hills of the Riviera, you start to get an idea of why so many celebrities flock to this part of town. Not only do you have your pick from some of the most fabulous properties on offer, but there’s that view over the port of Golfe Juan, stretching across to the Cap d’Antibes.
Exploring Cannes Luxury Villa Rentals
The town is easily divided into several key areas. These are Le Cannes, Super Cannes, La Californie, La Bocca, La Croix des Gardes and Cannes Eden.

It’s also one of the larger enclaves and offers some of the finest views in the French Riviera;
