The city of Cannes is famous for its film festival held every May. However, the charms of this city go well beyond this event. We had the opportunity to visit the city of Cannes a few weeks ago. These locations are some of the best places to visit and explore while you are in Cannes.
Port du Mouré Rouge
Île Saint Honorat
Pine forest is the home to the famous monastery of Lérins. The island is ideal for nature lovers but also for people seeking tranquility and spirituality. This island is owned by a community of monks who grow vines, which produce 12,000 bottles of liquor and 35,000 bottles of exceptional wine that is provided to many starred restaurants.
Wine tastings is possible every first Friday of each month.
The beach of Mouré Rouge:
Located on the east coast of La Croisette, this beach is ideal for families and water sports enthusiasts. Far from the atmosphere of the private beaches of La Croisette, the surrounding area is very friendly.

WHERE TO STAY
Far away from the palaces of the city, Cannes also has unique boutique hotels.
The Canberra Hotel:
The hotel is strategically located in the city center, in Rue d'Antibes. This hotel, built in 1835, is a 4-storey building designed in Provençal architecture. We appreciate the intimate side of the place. Its private pool is very nice to refresh during hot weather.
The Five Seas
Close to La Croisette, this boutique hotel has a modern, cozy and friendly atmosphere. The roof terrace has an outdoor pool making it an ideal place for a stay in Cannes.
