Your perfectly located villa in Cannes for your events and your holidays.

At the top of Boulevard Carnot, just steps away from the new Bonnard museum, the villa is linked to the Palais des Festival and Croisette beaches by the direct fast-track bus #1 in 15 minutes. There is a convenient taxi service for the Croisette (10mn) right at the foot of the villa.
The villa does not have a parking space attached to it but there are 5 free and pay parking lots around ; such as free Parking de Konigstein at the bottom of the rue de Konigstein (30 spots), and the pay parking des Orangers (20 spots (first hour free) : less than 1 euro per hour.

At night after the bustle of Cannes go back "home" to the charming village villa and enjoy the quiet of the Provencal garden.

This is indeed a true hidden gem in the heart of the lovely village...

We had a wonderful time staying with friends and family in this Special Villa in Le Cannet. The villa is centrally located in a walkable, very convenient area, with excellent transportation options by bus or cab for a short trip into Cannes. We easily walked to get our essentials, like groceries and bread, at the local shops. Perfect Patisserie. There...

We rented the secret villa to celebrate the holidays with my family. It is well located and very close to Le Cannet downtown with easy access to few but good restaurants. Public transportation to the croisette is easy and very convenient. The house has all the comfort you can expect to make you feel home. Few things to watch out....

Management response:

Thank you for your review. The downstairs bedroom is heated with reversible A/C and should not be humid but I am going to see to it. As I explained there are lots of free or pay parking within walking distance of the villa but no dedicated space at the foot of the villa.I am still looking to buy a garage...

We were met at the exact time for entry to the house and afterwards any problems or queries were immediately attended to by Patrice, the local agent for the owner. The property is even more delightful than any description or photo as its position and ambiance cannot easily be described. Everything we needed or wanted was provided in the modern...
