For buying and selling property in Cannes

The toast of the French Riviera

Cannes is located on the Eastern coast of the French Riviera, tucked away in La Napoule bay. The city is popular for its glamorous lifestyle, stunning setting, steady climate and, of course, the world famous festivals.

Cannes: Life is a festival

International regattas frequently stop by in the city, the international Record and Music Market takes place in January and the international market for Television programs occurs every April and May. The highlight of the year is always the Cannes Film Festival, which attracts celebrities, the media and industry buffs to reflect on the latest offering of cinematic delights. Expect busy streets at this time of year as the population trebles overnight. Cannes has adopted the motto, 'Life is a festival', although in reality the festival season runs between May and October. It is also worth mentioning that during many of these festivals, people are always on the look-out for property to rent, as hotels often are over-subscribed. Thus property owners can earn a substantial income, should they be able to let out their property during these times.

Awash with wealth

A stroll around the city will open your eyes to the incredible amount of wealth flowing through the city's economy. Yachts the size of ocean liners dominate the bay while on dry land the streets are filled with fashionable boutiques and exquisite restaurants.

Plenty of sand

In contrast to the neighbouring towns of the French Riviera, Cannes is the proud owner of a sandy coastline. However, much of the beach is reserved by the hotels for the sole use of their customers. Cannes is a great place in which to embark on a boat trip to explore the rest of the Riviera coastline. Rides to St. Tropez and Monaco are both around 30 euros.

How to get there

Rail Europe runs a service from the UK to Cannes. If you'd rather fly, the nearest international airport is in Nice where there are regular flights from Ryanair, British Airways, EasyJet, British Midland, Flybe and Jet2.

Cannes property prices

The price of property in Cannes is very high, although this hasn't deterred many British buyers from buying there. One advantage is the highly stable rental market that can turn your property into a great investment, the fabulous weather attracting a constant stream of visitors. A villa in the city could cost around 2,440,000 euros. The surrounding villages offer more affordable properties. Three miles inland lies Mougins where Picasso lived. Here, a renovated 18th Century village house costs around 350,000 euros.
