Mandelieu La Napoule is a quiet residential village. It is perfect for people who want to stay in Cannes but not be in the hustle and bustle of it. As you go to the local train station you can get a train which will take you to the middle of cannes in one stop. There are several hotels over there such as the sofitel and azur hotel.  Mandelieu La Napoule is not as expensive as paris. In fact almost everything over there is resonebally priced. Also it is advisable to know a few french words like Bonjour, Merci, Ca va, as the French are very proud of their language so they wont change it because of a stranger. close to the hotel is a market which operates 3 times a week in the market you could find things like sweets, paintings, souviners.

The avaible activities available are swimming, golf, fishing, and sailing. please take note the mandeliue is a golf haven. I would personally advise not to buy your groceries except from Geant hyper market as it is the cheapest place to buy from and there is a choice of restaurants like mcdonalds and casino cafeteria and a delicious pizzeria.

The worst thing to do there is to offend dogs as french dog owners love there dogs almost more than anything in the world.

So enjoy yourself.
