French villas by sea and Cannes Film Festival

Cannes Film Festival is not only the world’s most prestigious film festival, but it is one of France’s biggest celebrations, and the perfect reason to book French villas by sea. The city becomes awash in glitz and glamour, and is beating with a pulse all its own!

Located in the charismatic coastal city of Cannes, people come from far and wide to enjoy the sun of the French Riviera, the magnificent yachts, the posh soirees and to stay in French villas by sea or luxury apartments in and around Cannes.

Cannes Film Festival

The Cannes Film Festival, also dubbed Fete de Cannes, is 12 days in May when this cosy seaside town suddenly transforms into the most cosmopolitan and posh place on earth. Hundreds of thousands of people descend upon Cannes to screen movies, walk the red carpet, star gaze and party!

Dom Perignon & Brigitte Bardot

From the terrace of French villas by sea, stare in awe at the most impressive yachts mooring in the harbour and serving Dom Perignon. Also take time to explore the neighbouring towns that hold court for the rich and famous, and anyone else that can get in to the party.

It is said that as far back the 1950s the blonde bombshell Brigitte Bardot put Cannes on the map with her seaside photo shoot , and it hasn’t been the same since. During the festival the streets are packed and the parties never end. Now is the time to search for French villas so you too can soak up the energy of the Cannes Film Festival.

Champagne and wine flow unabashedly at the Cannes Film Festival and the beach is flooded with sunbathers and sport enthusiasts. It is, admittedly, difficult to get into some of the parties and events, but just being there is dreamlike. If you can’t stand the constant flashes of the paparazzi you can always take shelter in French villas by sea; rent one for yourself or host your own party.
