Luxury Real estate Cannes
One of the most famous cities on the French Riviera, and indeed the world, is without doubt Cannes. The word itself conjures up images of glamorous movies stars, elegance, style, and romantic ambiance. For about eleven days each May, the red carpets are rolled out and the image becomes reality. However, outside the festival season, Cannes retains an idyllic, genuine small town feel, with pleasant local shops, sparkling beaches, and vibrant markets.

The old part of the town lies a little north of La Croisette and offers spectacular views over the azure waters of the Mediterranean and the Island of Sainte Margueite which lies just a half mile offshore. In 1687 "the man in the iron mask" [Eustache Dauger] was imprisoned here. At the top of the Suquet hill the Church of Notre-Dame de l'Esperance [16th-17th century] is imposing, looking more like an ancient fortress than a Gothic style church, and is particularly beautiful at night when illuminated.
Tourism came to Cannes with the opening of the railways in the late nineteenth century and it was these rail links which prompted investment and the development of a number of large scale building projects. The beautiful architecture of Cannes varies incredibly in influence and size and is inspired by everything from medieval castles and Roman villas, to the grand constructions of the golden era. Amongst the most prestigious areas for Cannes properties is the Le Suquet in the old quarter of Cannes, best known for its winding cobbled streets lined with exquisite restaurants and boutiques. Le Suquet contains a clock tower and church that face east overlooking the Bay of Cannes and Cannes itself. This area is the original Fisherman's residential area of Cannes. The houses are all very old with the streets dating back at least 400 years. A lot of the area is off limits to vehicles and is a major tourist attraction for visitors to Cannes.
