Consider using Uber – although it’s politically uncorrect – but it can be difficult to get a regular taxi. You need to download the Uber app on your smartphone.

PS: Renting a car is not that much more for a whole week than using above taxi however it is recommended that one should be an experienced driver and it is ideal that underground parking is included in our rental price.

Travel guidance by car:

Get off highway 8 at sign no. 41 “Cannes La Bocca”, follow the signs direction Cannes along the road Avenue Francis Tonner. Turn right in a red light cross where you see a sign with “bord de mer” (seaside) and have a real estate agency Cannes Horizon to your right. Once turned right, drive straight some 100 metres and you will find – just before a tunnel takes you under the train and to the beach road – a brown building on your right named Palme d’Azur. Access to the underground parking is to the right of the stairs to the main entrance.
