With its beautiful beaches, luxury yachts, fancy hotels, Cannes is the place to be for a glitzy holiday! More famous for its Cannes Film Festival where stars left their hand-prints set in the pavement called “Chemin des Étoiles”, Cannes has many fascinating cultural attractions. Walk along the Croisette, one of the most iconic promenades in France where you will find all the best hotels, some even have their own private beaches, and luxurious shops like the Promenade des Anglais in Nice. Discovering the oldest area of Cannes by visiting Le Suquet, a Roman settlement above the city with its neighborhood is a real delight to the eyes with its pastel-colored buildings. Not that far away, visit the Musée de la Castre located within a medieval castle that was once home to the monks of Lérins. Next to it, you will find Notre-Dame d’Espérance, a wonderful church built in the 14th and 15th centuries sitting at the top of the hill. Both make Cannes’ historical architecture and will present you with the most stunning view of Cannes from above. We cannot talk about Cannes without talking about its beaches. If you want to get away from the bustling La Croisette and its beaches, you can relax at the Palm Beach or Plage du Midi, two public and quiet beaches. As you can see, Cannes might be a sparkling side of the French Riviera, but you can also find a more simple side of it, making it a great destination for a holiday if you would like to enjoy both.
When it comes to the French Riviera, exploring the Mediterranean coastline by boat is an absolute must. Renting a boat might seem a little overwhelming at first. You’ll quickly find you’re spoiled for choice. Small boats, motorboats, sailboats, and larger yachts are all available on the French Riviera. Each boat provides a different way to experience France’s sparkling southern coast. If you want to experience Cannes like a celebrity, consider renting a catamaran for €600/day. You’ll sail the Mediterranean coast at the hands of a private skipper. If a catamaran isn’t your cup of tea, perhaps a luxury boat would suit your needs. Luxury boats are roughly €900/day and include a skipper. If you really want to blend in with the locals, rent a yacht! If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, consider renting a sailboat. Sailboat rentals range from €200/day up to €600/day and include a flexible cancellation policy. Note that a skipper is mandatory for a sailboat. This means all you have to do is step on board, sit back, and enjoy the views. Rental prices vary depending on the size of the boat, the season, and the rental location. We’re here to advise you on the very best boat rentals and can point you in the direction of a rental to suit your needs.
