Cannes studio description
A romantic place for two (or three) right in the center of the old part of Cannes, beautifully equipped and recently refurnished for 2006.
I have lovingly restored this studio with its original wooden beams and have decorated it with furniture brought back from my trips to India. This is the place where Maharajahs would like to hide with their Maharani!
It is, however, unsuitable for small children.
The studio is very cosy and comfortable, bright and bathed in the mild morning sun. Two windows open onto the courtyard and a fascinating landscape of roofs - no noise from the busy city, just a few seagulls from time to time.
The kitchen is well equipped and modern (including a nice big fridge and an oven), the entertainment systems are leading-edge and there is wireless high-speed internet if you need it.
There is a brand-new bright bathroom, with bathtub and shower, a large sink with top mirror, and toilet.
The studio is located on the third floor of an old house with only few apartments - sorry, as in most old houses, there is no lift!
The 'Maharajah' studio is literally footsteps away from the Palais de Festivals on the seafront (this is where the annual Film Festival is held - no need to go to Hollywood, it all happens in Cannes in May).
The charming Old Port, the famous beaches, the restaurants, the magical Croisette with its Deluxe hotels and world-class shopping - they are all minutes away on foot.
Walk out onto the bustling pedestrian street Rue Meynadier, where you can buy anything you might need, from food to fashion, and on the corner is the market hall of Marché Forville, open every morning (including Sundays when it is a Flea-Market)) with a huge choice of vegetables and beautiful fruit.
In the evening you can stroll along the port with its breathtaking views of yachts from all over the world - some of them are also available for rent. Or window-shop the incredible choice of restaurants - the best fresh fish, oysters and lobsters are at 'Brun'.
Or saunter down the Croisette to sip your pastis on the terrace of the Hotel Carlton after returning from a long day on the beach - this is one of the best spots in the world for people-watching.
Cannes is alive all year round and there are always things to see and do. Even if you want to take it easy and go to the cinema, you’ll find several English-language films on at the nearby multi-screen cinema. Incidentally, English is very widely spoken in Cannes and all along the Côte d’Azur.
Some general information:
After W.W.II, Cannes quickly became the haunt of crowned heads and billionaires, then the city of stars, festivals, and international conventions. Mostly famous for its International Film Festival (in May) the town regularly hosts well-known stars in its many luxury hotels. On La Croisette, the most famous fashion brands are represented: among others Louis Vuitton, Chanel, or Hermès. Of course, restaurants and boutiques are all around. The white-sand beach across La Croisette is usually crowded but remains one of the most famous throughout the French Riviera. But there are plenty of beaches all along the coastline of Cannes, from popular to poche... please bring your own beach towels (unless you want to buy them at Chanel, Nina Ricci or other brands...).
The transport hub of Nice is 20 minutes to the east. CANNES train station is served by the high-speed TGV (the 'Train Grande Vitesse,' only five hours to Paris), and its international airport (Nice-Côte d’Azur) has daily flights from New York and many connections from all over Europe. Other transatlantic flights connect through Paris. Cannes train station is 10 minutes away on foot.
With a car, you can range far and wide on day trips alone: Italy is only 1 hour away. Aix en Provence and St Tropez are 90 minutes distant. Less than an hour away are Monte Carlo, Villefranche, St Paul-de-Vence, Grasse, Antibes, Juan-les-Pins, and some fabulous golf courses.
By the way, if you want to rent a car and park it very close to your apartment, you can arrange via Internet a parking place in an underground Parking just five minutes away. On the other hand, you can also easily take the train to reach Saint Tropez, Nice, Monte Carlo, Menton, and even Italy... and don't have to worry about a car!
Please do not hesitate to give me a call (considering the time zones - i am fast asleep when you are awake!) - and I will be pleased to give you any additional information you may need... a personal contact makes all the difference!

This was my first visit to the South of France and thanks to this apartment, I have fallen in love with it! I was pleasantly surprised to find that it met my needs and then some. It was bigger than it appeared in the photos. It was bright with natural light, quiet and very centrally located. The apartment is not more than a 5 or 6 minute walk from anything I needed (grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants, bars, cafes and all of the boutiques for shopping along Rue D'Antibes). There is a farmer's market right down the way so I enjoyed fresh meals on a daily basis. The kitchen is comfortable enough to prepare meals without feeling cramped & the appliances are clean. I took a stroll along the Mediterranean every afternoon. Even though the property owner is not in Cannes, there is also a local property manager who was available to me through the duration of my stay should anything come up. I will without a doubt be staying here when I return to Cannes and have already recommended this apartment to friends. You will not be sorry!

This apartment is a great deal. The two of us were very comfortable - the bed was great, there was adequate space, the kitchen was completely stocked, the bathroom was small, but not a problem, the air conditioner worked well. The location is spectacular - within walking distance of dozens of eateries and shops, a couple of blocks from the train station and a large department/food store, and easy walking distance to a free beach that was never crowded. I would have given this a 4.5 if possible. The .5 off would be for the most frustrating way of gaining access to the apartment upon our arrival in Cannes. We were never given an address, and the number of the person to whom we were to get in touch with was mis-typed (a forgiveable mistake). Luckily there was an internet cafe open on Sunday and we made contact with Mauritizia and eventually taxied over to the apartment. The taxi driver was very upset that we only went 3 blocks and charged us 10 euros for her trouble. We were too tired to argue. The women who met us with the key didn't speak English very well and didn't explain how to open the front gate which caused a problem. The moral - get the address, walk from the train station (the hike up the three flights to the apartment is much more taxing), and look for the apartment manual which was located under the coffee table in the living room (we didn't find it until the second day) which provides you with all of the information you will need to make your week extremely enjoyable. We would definitely rent this apartment again!

I spent 2 weeks at the apartment and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's in a perfect spot - close to Palais, to shops, the beach, etc. The apartment was quiet since its in a courtyard, not on the street. Everything in the apartment was in good shape and well taken care of. I can definitely recommend staying at this apartment.

Our 2 week stay was fantastic. The apartment is recently renovated, beautifully apointed, extremely quiet, comfortable and clean and equally as thrilling, in one of the best locations in Cannes. Everything is within walking distance: the Croisette is 3 minutes away, THE place to shop, Rue d'Antibes, is literally around the corner, the daily flower and produce market 5 minutes away, the restaurants and bars in the Suquet 3 minutes away and for every day convenience, the local supermarket, bakery and delicacy stores, directly across the street. From the sun light that pours in every morning, to the relaxing and welcoming warmth of the studio to the excitement just outside that door... it really doesn't get any better.

We recently returned from a week long holiday in Cannes, staying at the Maharajah. The studio was very comfortable and well appointed, even the basic spices and cooking oils were provided in the kitchen. A nice Champion grocery is just steps away as is the fantastic open market. Even though we ate out most of the time, having a well stocked kitchen available for breakfast ,lunch, and the occasional evening meal can really save some Euros! I can't say enough about the location, it is convenient to everything....the town square, le Suquet, the beaches, great shopping, La Croisette, and every type restaurant imaginable are all just steps away. Much better than a hotel!

I have just returned from a week staying at the Maharajah and couldn't speak more highly of the accommodation. The apartment is extremely well fitted out and tastefully decorated, making the most of the original features. The view out the windows is charming and extremely peaceful compared with everything happening just a couple of minutes walk away. It was an ideal base for me, attending a television festival at he Palais and I would recommend it to anyone in preference to a characterless hotel - more cost effective too!

This lovely studio space is a home away from home. Great location within walking distance to everything you need to see. It is comfortable and quiet and very well appointed. I am looking forward to staying there again and again each time I return to Cannes. I can't recommend this apartment more - for a short time I felt like I really lived in the South of France.

Fantastic location! Easy access to the train station, to the beaches and La Croisette. The decor is lovely and very welcoming. The place is also nice and quiet at night. A little cozy hideaway in the middle of it all! We had a lovely stay.
