Vacation Rentals In The South of France - Cannes
When you hear the name Cannes, a beautiful southern French town on the Cote d'Azur, you might automatically think of the famous Cannes Film Festival. While this is a major event in Cannes, it is certainly not the only reason to take a trip here. Whether you want to experience the tranquil blue waters of the Rivera or the atmosphere of a small French town, Cannes is a great place to enjoy a vacation. Rentals in Cannes make it easy to spend as little time or as long as you would like in the village, and you can set up your own home away from home.
Mandelieu la Napoule is one of the unique places in Cannes. Frankly, it is a bit of a secret. The house is located up on the hills surrounding Cannes, which is nice when you need a bit of piece and quite. It has an open French charm, and sleeps four to six people. The key to the place is the pool and view, which is to die for as it overlooks the town and ocean. This is a great place to kick back and just take in the sunset with a cool drink. For those who like to party the night away, it is also a great place to watch sunrises! The rental will set you back between 300 and 600 Euros a night depending on the season.
If you are interested in hobnobbing with the celebrities at the Cannes Film Festival, be sure to schedule your trip for the appropriate time – usually in May. (In 2007, the Festival will take place between May 17 and May 28). You will need to be credentialed as a film industry professional, however, to get into the events. Most of the screenings and other festivities are not open to the general public.
Lodgings in Cannes are often booked well in advance of a trip, so make sure to consult your travel agent about the possibility of renting an open one. One such beautiful location that is available to rent is located only 50 meters from La Croisette, and its two bedrooms, dining room, living room, day room and more easily accommodates eight people. This style of lodging is common among those for rent in Cannes, and they can cost about 2900 Euros per week in the high season. Put another way, this is not the spot for the budget traveler.
Whenever you choose to visit the south of France, make sure to look into private rentals in Cannes. By staying for an extended period in one of these comfortable places, you can be sure to get a real feel for living in the south of France. The beauty and charm of Cannes is world-renowned, so making a trip here is definitely a luxury worth spending your money on!
