Ultimate Cannes Guide by Neighborhood

May 04, 2020
What do you know about Cannes? Its famous film festival? O course! A beautiful sunny paradise in the south of France? Yes! A Mediterranean playground for the rich and famous? Most likely! Chances are all of what you've seen about Cannes are from the magazines and on the internet. And while they project a glorious and luxurious image of sunshine and evening galas, there's more to this part of France than meets the eye. In fact, more than just a hot vacation spot, it's also a pleasant place to stay in. And here are some neighborhoods that may convince you of that!

Ultimate Cannes Guide by Neighborhood

 

Cannes City Centre

Let's start with the city center. If you think of Cannes as this Southern metropolis that's equal parts a shopping haven and coastal town, it's probably because of this neighborhood. This beautiful area combines the French luxuries one might find in the likes of Paris with the beautiful laid-back lifestyle of the Mediterranean. By day, you can shop till you drop in the many flagship stores of France’s most prestigious brands and labels. And at night, you can party all night long in the many bars and nightclubs that make up this exciting neighborhood! The best part is you don't have to choose one over the other!

La Californie

It's highly likely that La Californie gots its name because this might be the area where a lot of Hollywood superstars stay when they're here for the Cannes Film Festival. Or when they're here just to enjoy what this beautiful place has to offer. Though, historically, this particular area used to be the hub of British and Russian royalty. When they want to escape their royal duties, this is where they retreat to. Nowadays, however, it's become a more open upscale neighborhood where you can stay and live like royalty or like a Hollywood celebrity in Cannes!

La Croisette

When you think fo the "Cannes lifestyle" you're probably thinking of afternoons by the beach, in a romantic cafe as you watch the sun go down. Your mornings are probably filled with the sunshine beaming through your window and the sound of ocean waves waking you up. It all seems too dreamy and too good to be true, doesn't it? Well, if you stayed at La Croisette, it's not far from reality. This neighborhood is the city's coastal area, lined with beautiful promenades and traditional French cafes so cinematic, you'll feel as if you're starring in a movie when you're in one!

Le Cannet

Filmmaking isn't the only art form celebrated in Cannes. The French paradise has its own artistic endeavors to share as well. And you'll probably find the lot of them over at Le Cannet. Just up north the City Centre, this is the place's artistic district. Dominated by art galleries, museums, and exhibitions spaces, you'll find a ton of exciting works and fresh new ideas here. If you're an artist yourself and you need to go to Cannes for inspiration, this is probably the best place to call home here. And if you're just someone who simply appreciates art, it won't hurt to stay here as well!

Le Suquet

Lu Suquet is arguably the most romantic, the most scenic, and probably the most cinematic neighborhood on this list. And, weirdly enough, the most family-friendly area in all of Cannes. For one thing, it used to be the center of medieval Franche apart from Paris. Only in the last few centuries did modernity catch up to the place. Still, you can find the remnants of that beautiful time here. Furthermore, it's also one of the more peaceful areas in Cannes, which is why it's practically the most suitable place within the city to raise a family.

Le Vieux Port

A traditional lifestyle meets contemporary wealth here at Le Vieux Port in Cannes. Translated into English as "The Old Port," it still retains the laid-back coastal lifestyle of the early 20th-century. If you just want to relax in Cannes, staying here is your best and safest bet. That is if there isn't a yacht racing competition going on. And that's where the contemporary wealth comes in. The port, as with any other, hosts a ton of boats and yachts, most of which are privately owned by the world's elite. You'll just feel surrounded by big money when they're all gathered to race their prized possessions in the many competitions held here!

Well, if you're looking for this type of place, look no further than Petit Juas. It's basically just this massive village full of enchanting villas fit for a quiet lifestyle.
