At 6th floor. A 2 room apartment for 4 persons, 30 m2 plus balcony 8m2. It is cleverly utilized and serves the purpose well. A wonderful balcony facing west with a splendid view to the sea, the beach, the coast towards west, the red Esterel mountains, the swimming pool and the palm tree garden.
You can enjoy the afternoon sun from the balcony since it is facing west. The balcony fence is a transparent glass frame architecture which allows you to sit on the balcony and watch down onto the activity around the pool.
The apartment consists of: a living room with 2 sofa beds. A dining table with 4 chairs. A kitchen with oven, fridge with freezer, 4 cooking plates.
A glazed sliding door leads to the balcony that contains a table and chairs.
The bed room offers a double bed of 140 x 190 cm.
The bathroom has a tub with shower curtain.
Lovely Stay in the Cote D’Azur. We have just returned from 2 week stay and had a lovely time. The accommodation was clean and basic but had a 5 star view and was centrally located to explore the Cote D’Azur. The train to Monaco/Nice was a five minute walk, Central Cannes 20 mins and if you have a car, the world is your oyster as it is so central! The beach (albeit in places rather narrow) was perfect for a quick dip and only 5 minutes walk away across the road. It is self catering and the owners are very comprehensive in their pre arrival instructions so there is no reason not to come prepared. After reading other reviews prior to my visit, I was sceptical of the surrounding area but on arrival it has all the amenities, fantastic patisserie 5 minutes walk away and large hypermarket a very short drive. It isn’t Cannes harbour but is a local bustling centre. Although it was a private rental the reception (which is only open 7 – 7pm) were helpful when organising a taxi into Cannes and a query we had with the underground parking. I could not fault them. The pool was great, meticulously cleaned everyday, you need to wear a wrist band to gain access and on the whole we always had a sunbed because there was no reserving your bed all day (even when you weren’t there) as the staff by the pool would move your towels to the side – which was a very pleasant surprise and something which should be applied to all pool areas in my opinion. In summary, we had a lovely two weeks, the accommodation was adequate with a 5* view, the location was perfect for exploring and as far as amenities it had everything we needed. The owners have always been extremely helpful and accommodating and would definitely pay a visit again.
Hi David, Thanks yet again we had a wonderful time, the apartments are so handy for travelling around the coast with fantastic views to return to in the evenings. Once again many thanks.
Hej Yusong og David. Efter 4 uforglemmelige uger (gik for hurtigt) vil vi takke jer for jeres venlighed og service omkring leje af lejlighederne. Lejligheden var virkelig skøn at opholde sig i, vi nød hver eneste dag i den og opholdt os særdeles meget på terrassen hver morgen og aften med en fantastisk udsigt udover Middelhavet og over mod bjergene ved den hyggelige by, Mandelieu. Beliggenheden er perfekt, hvor vi godt kunne lide at gå op i byen om formiddagen, gå på det lokale marked og handle og få vores kaffe samt prøve at leve os ind i franskmændenes hverdag. Derudover er det dejligt, at der er gåafstand til Cannes. Vi har nydt hvert eneste øjeblik, og det ved vi, at vores børn også gjorde, derfor også fuld tilfredshed fra dem. Vi vil meget gerne komme igen om 2 år. Endnu en gang tak. Venlig hilsen
(English translation:) Hi Yusong & David. After 4 unforgettable weeks (they went too fast) we wish to thank you for your kindness and service in connection with the rent of the apartments. The apartment was really wonderful to live in, we enjoyed every single day in it and spent a lot of time on the balcony every morning and night with a fantastic wiew over the Mediterranean Sea and towards the mountains by the cozy town, Mandelieu. The location is perfect, we enjoyed to take a stroll through the town every morning, go to the local market and shop for groceries and enjoy a cup of coffee and try to experience the daily life of the french people. Furthermore it is nice that Cannes is within walking distance. We have enjoyed every single moment and we know that our children did too so there is also full satisfaction from their side. We shall be happy to come back in 2 years. Once again thanks. Kind regards
Einen Tipp für die Nichtautofahrer unter Ihren Gästen. Wir haben alle Touren mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln gemacht. Es lief sehr gut. Vom Flughafen mit dem 200 Bus nach Cannes, Hotel de Ville umsteigen in den 1 oder 2 bis Mairie Annexe (vor den Ibis-Hotel) fahren. Fahrpreis 1€ (mit Umsteigen) Das ist unschlagbar preisgünstig, bes. bei den aktuellen Benzinpreisen. Auch Fahrten nach Vence, Grasse, Antibes und anderswo hin sind problemlos zu machen. Das Tourismusbüro in Cannes ist dabei sehr hilfreich. Viele Grüße.
(English translation:) A recommendation for guests who don’t have a car available. We managed all our excursions using public transport. It went very well. From Nice airport by bus 200 to Cannes, change at Hotel de Ville to bus 1 or 2, get off at Mairie Annexe (opposite Ibis Hotel). Total price including transit 1€ . That is an unbeatable price especially by the current gazoline prices. Also excursions to Vence, Grasse, Antibes and elsewhere are trouble free to make. The tourist bureau in Cannes is very helpful in this respect. Kind regards
Hi, Thanks again for renting us the flat, everything went well and we had a great time there. All your information was good to have. For example we tried the African queen which was good. There were also plenty of good boulangeries and food shops around. Because we had the car we also went around the area. The pool was great, the area clean and good taken care of. Would definitely recommend this to others. View from balcony superb. While in the flat we spent most time on the balcony which was spacy and nice for all 4 of us.
Hi David & Yusong, Just a quick note to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cannes La Bocca. The apartment was fine, lovely views and the complex spot on. The local restaurants were superb and good value for money. Once again I thank you for your pleasant no trouble service and will recommend your apartments to others. Will not hesitate to contact you again next time we plan to visit Cannes. Thanks again,
Hi David, Having started out with slight misgivings, especially after all one hears about the dangers and pitfalls of independent internet dealings, it was a pleasure to complete a smooth transaction that was enhanced by prompt responses supported by the comprehensive detail both on the web page and by email. After finding the apartment, via public transport from the airport, without to much difficulty we were pleased to find everything very much as described. We soon settled in, and found the apt to be clean and practical for the two of us, certainly the view and balcony were very enjoyable. The apartment block, including the pool area was also clean and well maintained. The location, away from the main tourist areas, suited us perfectly, with a pleasant “local” feel to the area with all necessary services close by and good economical transport links to the main tourist attractions in the region. We had a most enjoyable holiday both in the apartment/pool and exploring the region. We were very happy and satisfied with our choice of accomodation and should we be fortunate enough to be able to plan further visits to the area we would not hesitate in contacting you re availability. Equally we would happily recommend your services to others. Thank you once again for everything. Kind regards.
Hallo Frau Huang und Herr Nielsen, Vielen Dank! Unser Urlaub war einfach super! Wir haben die Zeit genossen, das Frühstuck auf der Terrasse mit dem Meeresblick war perfekt. Das Geld für die Tiefgarage hat sich gelohnt, wir hatten keine Gedanken uns gemacht, dass irgendwas mit dem Auto passieren kann. Cannes konnte man entweder zu Fuß (gegen 25min dem Strand entlang) oder mit dem Bus (gegen 10min.) erreichen. Die Supermärkte, den Markt mit Obst, Fisch, Gemüse… konnte man innerhalb 5 min zu Fuß auch erreichen. Man kann auch nach Nizza und Monaco fahren (mit der Autobahn gegen 12€ Gebühren dauert die Fahrt weniger als 1 Stunde), man kann den längeren Weg nehmen ohne Gebühren mit den schönen Aussichtsplätzen. Auf jeden Fall empfehlen wir die Porphyr Klippen und Grand Canyon du Verdon zu besichtigen.
Unsere Tipps: Cannes la Bocca: täglicher Markt auf der Hauptstrasse (5min zu Fuß). Obst: Mangos, Ananasen, Erdbeeren, Melonen… schmecken ganz anderes und duften so! Nizza: die Eisdiele “Fenocchio” auf dem Place Rossetti – gegen 100 Sorten Eis. Antibes: Marineland – sogar unser Sohn, der 15 Jahre alt ist und wie viele anderen in diesem Alter alles langweilig findet, war total vom Marineland begeistert.
Monaco: Oceanographic Museum mit dem Restaurant auf dem Obergeschoss mit der Panorama auf Monaco. Unser Sohn fand das Museum auch sehr interessant. Dieses Mal haben wir auch die Wachablösung am Palast in Monaco gesehen. Das hat auch viel Spass gemacht. Nicht vergessen: Sonn- und Feiertags ist parken auch in Frankreich auf den Strassen kostenlos (man kann schon viel Geld sparen). In Monaco gibt es überall Aufzüge,die die Unterstadt mit der Oberstadt verbinden. Wenn man die benutzt spart man viel Zeit und Energie. Wir hoffen, dass wir noch mal nach Cannes kommen, auf jeden Fall werden wir uns an Sie wenden. Noch Mal Vielen Dank!
Thank you very much! Our holiday was just super! We enjoyed the time, the breakfast on the balcony with the sea view was perfect. The money paid for the underground parking was worth it, we never needed to worry if something would happen to our car. Cannes you can reach either by foot (around 25min along the beach) or by bus (around 10min.). The super markets, the market with fruits, fish, vegetables..I could reach within 5 min by foot. One can also go to Nice and Monaco (by highway against a toll of 12€ it takes less than 1 hour), you can take the longer road without tolls with the beautiful view spots. Under all circumstances we recommend to visit the Porphyr cliffs and Grand Canyon du Verdon.
Our suggestions: Cannes la Bocca: daily market on the main road (5min by foot). Fruits: Mangos, pineapples, strawberries, melons… taste differently and smell so! Nice: the ice cream bar “Fenocchio” on Place Rossetti – around 100 sorts of ice. Antibes: Marineland – even our 15 year old son who like many others at this age find everything boring was totally exited about Marineland. Monaco: Oceanographic Museum with the Restaurant at the top with a panoramic view over Monaco. Our son found the Museum very interesting too. This time we also saw the change of guards at the Palace in Monaco. That was great fun too. Not to forget: On Sundays and holidays parking on the streets is free also in France (one can save a lot of money). In Monaco there are elevators everywhere that connect the lower part of the town with the upper part. When you use these you save a lot of time and energy. We hope that we can come back to Cannes and in that case we shall contact you. Again many thanks!
Hi Davi, We had such a lovely time, couldn’t have wished for it to be better – we’ll be recommending it to our friends! We never got tired of that view and the weather was perfect – its just a shame to return to rainy Britain! Many thank, Best Wishes
Wir danken Ihnen nochmals für die Überlassung des Apartments in Cannes über Weihnachten. Es war alles sehr schön und wir haben unseren Aufenthalt und den wunderschönen Blick vom Balkon genossen, vor allem beim Essen, denn bei diesen Temperaturen konnte man auch im Dezember draußen essen. Es war alles so, wie im Internet beschrieben, der Kontakt mit dem Besitzer verlief problemlos. Das Gebäude liegt in der Nähe mehrerer Einkaufszentren, der Spaziergang nach Cannes dauerte am Strand entlang etwa 20 Minuten. Das Wetter war sehr schön, Sonne, 13-14 Grad und wenig Wind. Ideale Bedingungen für Exkursionen, die Reise nach Südfrankreich wird für immer in guter Erinnerung bleiben. Zum Zug z.B. nach Nizza oder Monaco dauerte es ca. 5 Minuten. Wir können das Apartment vorbehaltlos allen Urlaubern in Südfrankreich empfehlen…
(English translation): We would like to thank you again for letting the appartment in Cannes over Christmas 2007. Everything was okay and we enjoyed our stay and the wonderful view off the balcony while having our dinner, especially during meals since by these temperatures it was possible to eat outdoors also during December. We found what we expected from the description, the contact with the owner proved to be easy and sufficient. The site of the apartment in the building was in walking distance to nearby shopping centres, the walk towards Cannes centre took about 20 mins along the seaside. Weather was fine, 13-14 degrees C and little wind. Ideal conditions for excursions and the holidays in the South of France will remain a vivid memory for a long time. The train to Monaco or Nice was a five-minute-walk away. We would recommend this accomodation to anyone who would love to explore La Côte d’Azur.
We have just returned from Cannes and from our perspective everything worked smoothly. We did enjoy the view a great deal and in fact had every meal on the balcony. We found we did not need to use the fan as there was adequate ventilation and we were out all day anyways. We enjoyed visiting the bakery just north of the apartment and found all services such as groceries and restaurants to be very convenient. We frequently walked to and from Cannes (it took us about 25 minutes to the heart of the harbour) [remark from Owner: it takes in average apx. 35 min] and found it to be a most pleasant walk by the sea. We tended to swim between the big rock outcroppings as they were scenic and the beach there was quite wide . We were impressed with the good sand and excellent water. The pleasure was ours in being able to stay in your apartment. Feel free to use any of our comments that would be useful. Best wishes for a good year and if another trip to France is ever in our plans it will be comforting to know that we have contact with such a trustworthy and helpful person as yourself to contact regarding future accomodation.
Tak for opholdet i din glimrende lejlighed i Cannes de sidste 3 uger. Vi havde sol næsten hele tiden. Mange hilsener
(English translation:) Thank you very much for the stay in your excellent apartment in Cannes for the last 3 weeks. We had sunshine almost all the time. Many greetings
It was a great pleasure staying in your apartment. I would definitely like to stay there again next time. Contrary to my concern about the commutation to Palais des Festival, it was very convenient as MIPTV shuttle passed by the bus stop near from the apartment building every 30 minutes and I could also take buses to right in front of Palais. Fortunately, it was the area I used to stay during the festival, where big residence hotels are located, so everything was familiar to me. I think it is not necessary to mention about the view but it was just fantastic! Kind regards
Dear David, I am back from my trip today and thought I would email to say that the apartment was very comfortable, convenient and quiet. It was an ideal base for our time in Cannes. The conference buses made getting to MIDEM easy and the weather was good enough to walk along the beach into Cannes on a couple of mornings. Best wishes,
Dear David, Thank you for the use of apartment 608 last week. We had a wonderful holiday. The view from the apartment was spectacular and it was very easy to travel around Cannes La Bocca by bus and train. The weather was great! We couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing holiday. Many thanks
Vi hadde en fin uke i Cannes, og leiligheten var meget bra, flott terrassen, og meget bra billigende i forhold til Cannes (center), og ikke minst kort vei til stranden
(English translation): We had a fine week in Cannes and the apartment was very good, a beautiful balcony and a very good location to Cannes (centre) and a very short distance to the beach.
Hallo, nach dem wunderschönen Urlaub mit tollem Wetter, sauberem Strand, warmem Meer und leckerem Essen in Cannes sind wir nun wieder gut zurück. Das Appartment hat uns im Wohnbereich sehr gut gefallen, wirklich ein toller Balkon mit super Blick auf das Meer und l’Esterel-Gebirge. wow ! Wir haben unseren Urlaub sehr genossen. Eisenbahn und Lärm von Mitbewohnern waren nicht schlimm, der Aufzug hat überhaupt nicht gestört, Sicherheit ist super. Tiefgarage war überraschend gross, so dass man den Wagen bequem parken konnte. Die Idee mit dem Safe für den Schlüssel ist super! Nochmals vielen Dank, vielleicht klappt es im kommenden Jahr wieder Gast in Deinem Appartment sein zu können. Viele Grüße und alles Gute.
English translation: Hello, after the wonderful vacation with great weather, clean beach, warm sea and delicious food in Cannes we are now safe back at home. We found the apartment suitable to us, a really great Balcony with a superb view on the sea and the Esterel-mountains. Wow ! We really enjoyed our holiday. Railway and noise from neighbours was not a problem, the elevator did not disturb us at all, safety is super. The underground parking was surprisingly large so it was easy to park the car. The idea with a safe for the key is super! Again many thanks, perhaps it will work out that we can stay as guests in your apartment also next year. Many greetings and all the best
We found the location to be convenient and the apartment is comfortable and well provided for. I especially liked the orientation of 608 which means the balcony stays in shade until the afternoon so it is not too hot when we eat meals outside. The local supermarket and boulangerie are excellent and the quality of the fresh fruit and vegetables as good as a market. If you want the buzz of central Cannes, the block is just a €1 bus ride from the festival park, which was great for people watching. I think other guests might like to know where the bus stop is (outside the Ibis Hotel). We had a really good week and on the last day, we rented a car to drive to St Paul de Vence. The boys thought the lunch in Le Tilleul Restaurant was fantastic! Many thanks
