Property description

This is indeed a true hidden gem in Cannes and within the lovely old town of Le Cannet. This 17th Centuary village house has been totally refurbished within the last couple of years and whilst still retaining a charming provencal feel - the property has 3 well designed modern bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. The villa is presented over 3 levels with sea views from the 2 upper level bedrooms. The 3rd bedroom is accessed from the garden terrace . All bedrooms can be made up either with king or 2 single beds. The drawing room has a large italian sofa bed with lovely views over the garden. The dining with large dining table has convenient direct access kitchen. The provencal garden - complete with plenty of lavender has a terrace area and also an upper level terrace from the kitchen. The house has all up to date amenities to include air conditioning, wifi, satalite tv, plasma tv and HD recorder. There are plenty of local shops close to this villa as well as a convenient taxi service directly to the Croisette. Do note also that the brand new Palm Express Line runs directly to the beach. Quiet neighbourhood!

A little History of this lovely property:
The Uultimate French xxperience - charming 17th century Provençal house which has been in the owner's family for over 3 centuries and has been added to in the course of centuries. It is named Le Cros (the Hollow) and gave its name to the neighbourhood. Located at the top of Cannes's well-known Boulevard Carnot which directly connects the Palais des Festivals to Le Cannet. The rue du Cros is off the rue Victorien Sardou in which Le Cannet's cinema is located.

The new Palm Express Line is now available to take our guests to the beach as well as plentiful bus services
There is also a taxi rank at the nearby town hall - travel to the Croisette in less than 10 minutes.

It is very easy to park close to this villa either in the street or in the free communal car-park.

The villa has a sea-view from the upper level bedrooms and is definitely a much better and cheaper experience than staying at a hotel.

You can buy anything you need from the local small shops on Boulevard Carnot. Pharmacy, Post-office and Library as well as the excellent Baker and Butcher are just 1 minute away. How about taking home some delicious gourmet food from these local shops and relax in the garden if you do not feel like going out to expensive restaurants. Try the delicious local produce - the breads, cheese and a bottle of wine is often a much better way of enjoying French cuisine and Provençal delicacies than dining out. Needless to say that the villa and its quaint garden offer you much more space than a hotel room. What is more you can wander peacefully and safely in the village's main street, pedestrianised rue Saint-Sauveur with all its Arts and Crafts shops, its fine art galleries and numerous cosy restaurants without forgetting the Place Bellevue where from you will admire the liners moored in the Bay of Cannes.

You will be able to walk to the other villa for 8/9 by the same owner, please ask for details.

More Chic: The villa has entirely been refurbished and is equipped with all modern amenities while retaining its 17th century charm with its 'tommettes' (red tiles) ; its old stone fountain dated 1867; its ancient stone 'lavoir' (wash-place); its old wine press where the owner's father, grand-father and great-grandfather used to 'tread' the grapes from their land barefoot and finally its rounded staircase 'confiturier' (marmalade cabinet) to keep the orange preserves they had made from the bitter 'Bigarade' oranges that grew (and still grow) in the garden. The garden is planted with jasmine, orange, tangerine- and olive-trees (that make a natural parasol over the elegant garden furniture) not to mention a Muscat grape vine that yields delicious grapes.

Other Amenities

  • Review July 2011: We stayed in this lovely, old villa last week for a family holiday and it was perfect for us. The description and photos are entirely accurate but cannot convey the delightful feeling of seclusion and peace the villa offers. The large dining table was great for big family meals and the garden, sitting under the olive tree, was ideal for warm summer evenings. The property was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The manager was a delight, making us feel very welcome and offering help, if needed, through the week. The newly opened Bonnard Museum, less than 5 mins walk away, is highly recommended. 5 floors of fully air-conditioned, well presented material with an interesting local history. A car is really not necessary to stay in this house. Parking can be a problem and the nearby bus & taxi services into Cannes are excellent. So long as they could negotiate the lovely spiral staircase, I would unreservedly recommend this house to friends, it is a beautiful place to stay...moreless

Car: Not Necessary

Le Cannet, also called France's Madeira, is an old historical town between Mougins and Vallauris, on the hill overlooking the bay of Cannes - it has much to offer in terms of artistic life and has been the haunt of famous painters, particularly Pierre Bonnard who is buried there (the new Bonnard museum was inaugurated there on 27 June 2011). It is for tourists who want to experience the genuine french life, the historical sites and get a taste of the local folklore in addition to visiting the French Riviera.

The owner of the villa is a descendant of the 140 Ligurian families who, in the 15th century, came from Italy at the invitation of the monks of the Iles de Lerins (off Cannes) to cultivate their orange-trees. The genealogical tree on Place Bellevue still bears testimony to the adventure of the foundation of the village.

It is also important to note that this property is served by the new PALM EXPRESS LINE - 13 mns to Palais on the Croisette. This line also includes the train station!

Top Class Holiday Rentals

About: I am Janet Byrne and I am Irish. My company is called Top Class Holiday Rentals and I am in business since 2008 following a successful career with one of the large banks in Ireland. I rent holiday properties in France, Spain, Portugal and Ireland. I will only rent a property that I am happy to stay in myself

Why Le Cannet, France:
I loved this property as soon as I arrived to the hall door. It is located within the Old Town of Le Cannet which is so pretty and is full of little shops, excellent restaurants, great cafes and is still within a short bus ride to the Croissette. I would have no problem booking a holiday for us here.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This house has been re-furbished in recent times to a very high standard and still retains the provencal feel. There are 3 spacious bedrooms, each having its own really well appointed bathroom. The principal bedroom has a lovely balcony with lovely views over the gardens. I love the fact that this house has its own terrace and terrific well tended garden.
