The best of Cannes

IMG_2332

One of the many benefits of a holiday at the Cote D’azur is that it offers a variety of beautiful towns to explore. Each of them have their very own charme. Nice, has a metropolitan appeal and is great for shopping, quaint Antibes offers the most breath taking views of Cap D’antibes and some of the best restaurants in the region, Glitzy Saint-Tropez is the jet set’s favorite destination and nearby Pampelonne beach has some of the coolest beach clubs in the region. However, if I have to choose a destination for a weekend trip it would have to be Cannes. Cannes offers a little bit of everything. The Croisette hosts an array of beach clubs and great restaurants right on the beach, there is a good selection of hotels to choose from and plenty of options for some bar hopping and clubbing. In short, Cannes is a condensed version the Provence’s precious charme. With a 45 minute drive from the airport it is also easy to get to.

Here is my list of things not to miss in Cannes:

Restaurants: There is large variety of restaurants by the beach. Try as many as you can as they are all excellent. My favourite is the Baoli restaurant.

Beach Clubs: There are many however La Bonne Vivante’s preferred choices ist the Martinez beach club.

Clubs: Baoli & Gotha Club are among the best clubs to frequent when in Cannes.

Hotels: Famous for its celebrity clientele the Martinez combines artdeco charme with classic exclusiveness. Having an apereitif at the hotels outdoor bar by the pool at sunset is an absolute must!
