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 recommended to hire underground parking with us, see more under Prices.
Travel guidance by car:
Get off highway 8 at sign no. 41 “Cannes La Bocca”, follow the signs direction Cannes. In a roundabout you will see a small white airplane as a statue on a pedestal, there you turn right after the plane, drive straight ahead for a couple of minutes 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 on each side, Century 21 to your left and Cannes Horizon to your right. (PS ignore a minor Cannes Horizon shop window that comes earlier on same street). 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 light 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 for those who have rented parking with us.
