Luxury Property for Sale in Cannes
Mention Cannes to most people and they will immediately conjure up glossy images of film stars strolling down swathes of red carpet, blue and white parasols on perfect sandy beaches and majestic hotels straight out of the Belle Epoque.
For Cannes, situated between Nice and Saint Tropez on the Cote d’Azur, is by far the most glamorous of the string of major resorts on this stretch of coast line in the South of France.
Home to the famous Cannes Film Festival which attracts some of the biggest names in the movie world each May, the town also hosts a number of important conferences such as MIPIM, the biggest international property market on the planet.
The busy calendar events at the grandiose Palais des Festivals and Congres on the equally splendid La Croisette means that Cannes enjoys a particularly buoyant buy to let market, with tens of thousands of business visitors flooding the town each year.
Indeed, its’ importance as a festival town coupled by its stunning location opposite the beautiful archipelago of islands known as Les Iles des Lérins means that property in Cannes is hugely sought-after.
Situated just 20 minutes from Nice Cote d’Azur International airport and minutes from the smaller Cannes Mandelieu airport, the town is popular with people looking for a home from home in a region which is blessed with more than 300 days of sunshine per year.
With fantastic shopping on a par with the likes of London, Rome or Paris plus a string of first-class restaurants to match, Cannes really does have it all.
In terms of real estate, Cannes is also blessed. Much of the property for sale in Cannes is located in exclusive apartment blocks close to the Palais des Festivals and palm-lined La Croisette, with stunning views over the Baie de Cannes.
But the town also boasts a large number of sumptuous villas for sale in Cannes areas such as La Californie, where many of the properties are set in beautiful grounds with swimming pools and extensive gardens.
