About Mr J Mindham

Born in London, I have always enjoyed France and the amazing clarity of the light in the south of France. Now 'early-retired' I manage this property myself and always welcome guests personally, showing them everything they need to know about the area and the apartment.

Mr J Mindham purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mr J Mindham chose Cannes

With the sun streaming into the living room in mid-February, coming from the north of Europe how could I resist?

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet apartment in a quiet residential area (wake up hearing the birds sing !), but in the centre of town and only a few minutes walk from the Croisette/beach/Palais des Festivals. Private parking. Adjustable air-conditioning/heating. WiFi internet and FREE landline calls to many countries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a pleasure to stay in this attractive and spacious apartment in a quiet neighbourhood just a short walk from local food shops and the station, and less than 10 minutes walk from the beach. It's an interesting and pleasant walk to Le Suquet, the old town. The owner was friendly and very helpful, giving us clear information and useful advice. Each room is sunny and bright, well furnished and clean. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom and shower room well appointed. The king size bed was wonderfully comfortable. The apartment is not overlooked and enjoys views in both directions: the view from the lounge was particularly impressive in the evening. The balconies (with electric blinds) are a considerable bonus.

All told, a five star experience which we hope to repeat

Great apartment and location!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Cannes was especially enjoyable this year. This apartment has wonderful light, a fantastic location and all the essential amenities. The refurbished bathrooms were also a plus. The owner was very helpful and available if needed (and he wasn't needed). Grocery store nearby was handy. The train station was minutes away, for travel to other towns. I would definitely stay here again.

Cozy and well appointed flat in Cannes

  • 5 of 5

This flat has lots of good qualities. It is safe, well furnished, has two and a half baths, two balconies, a lift and a garage. These were the features that we were looking for and that made our stay there most pleasant and comfortable. The kitchen is charming and made me feel as if I were at home in a very french environment. The owner is courteous and helpful and helped make our stay effortless. The only disadvantage was the lack of English television which I have heard is pretty much normal throughout Cannes. There was a large supply of English books to read and by the end of the week I was comfortable watching the news in French.

The only downside of the location of this flat is that although it is very close to grocery stores, a pastry shop and some cafes, it was quite a distance to the main part of the city. The streets of Cannes are very winding and many are one way. so it is difficult driving for someone from the US where streets are usually straight. We found that the best way to get around was to walk. We did gradually discover short cuts to the sea and felt very safe walking everywhere. All in all I would highly recommend this flat to anyone who wants to experience a feeling of living in France - a little removed from the more touristy aspects of the city.

Owner's Response: As this visitor says, it's easier to walk everywhere here! Shops of all sorts, a Provençal market, cinemas and even the beach/seafront are all just a short walk away. So leave your car in the private garage, or come without a car; the train station is five minutes walk away, Nice airport thirty minutes. And English language TV channels are now available!

3 nights in Cannes

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in Jonathan's apartment. There was plenty of space for the 4 of us. The place was clean and tidy...especially the kitchen and bathroom. The apartment is in a residential area of Cannes... a 5-minute walk to the attractions of Cannes...specifically the sidewalk cafes to the south side of the SCNF Cannes rail station, accessible via the underground passage way. The place is air conditioned for a comfortable night's sleep.

Comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment for a late summer break in Cannes and it was perfect.

Bright and spacious with lovely views we had breakfast on the balcony on one side and a glass of wine in the evening on the other side as the sun went down.

Spotlessly clean and it had everything we needed ( and more) fabulously comfortable bed and super shower!

The owner has made it feel just like home with lots of advice on how everything worked as well as how to find the local supermarket and bakery for the morning croissants!

The local market is a five minute walk away and two minutes later you are on the beach!

Large sunny flat with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient flat with great access to main shops and the sea.

Wonderful to return and enjoy again the amazing views of the terracotta roofs and hill. The balconies mean it is possible to enjoy sunshine all day. Extremely comfortable bed in large ensuite main bedroom, as well as being very quiet. Everything needed is just so close by and Cannes is such a beautiful and friendly seaside town.

Car: not necessary

Centrally but quietly situated in glamorous Cannes, famous for it's Film Festival and the glitterati, with some of the best shops in the world on your doorstep, just a few minutes walk from the Croisette, where you can stroll along and admire the beautiful yachts and sunsets... and just 'people-watch' from one of the (free) blue chairs, or enjoy the beautiful private or public beaches.

St Tropez (take a boat!), Grasse, Nice (explore the Flower Market and Old City) and Italy are all easily accessible by car or train.

Or explore the quaint old town of Cannes 'Le Suquet', the museums, antique and flower markets on foot or with the help of 'Le Petit Train', and have your photo taken on the red carpet of the Palais des Festivals.

For shopping the rue d'Antibes is HEAVEN! Very stylish shops, not necessarily expensive. For everyday needs there are a supermarket, boulangerie, bars, restaurants etc within 100 metres, and the food markets at Place Gambetta and Forville are a few minutes walk
