Cannes, the Pearl of the French Riviera, with a gentle, sunny climate, is served by an excellent motorway network, a heliport and the Nice Cote D’Azur airport (20 minutes away), which puts all the European capitals within easy reach. Cannes, a town known for its sailing, its international festivals, important hotels, “haute couture” and its rich “arrière-pays” (hinterland), is undoubtedly a highly developed economic sector where activity flirts with the pleasures of Mediterranean life.
A change in the usual routine is possible only 5 minutes from downtown. The most beautiful homes on the Cote d’Azur are to be found on a protected hillside, away from the animated lifestyle of La Croissette, where they nestle in the heart of luxurious vegetation, with an abundance of mimosa.
The property, which is bordered by the communal woodland surrounding the town, is located in this area which is known as “the green lung of Cannes”, protected from all types of pollution and the usual concrete excess buildings to which we are accustomed. Here can be found absolute peace, only broken by the sounds of cicadas and birds. A matchless, ever-changing landscape is offered to the eyes of those privileged to delight in it, from the time that the sun rises over the expanse of blue until it sets over the mountain range of Esterel. The property has an open view of the sea of 180º which cannot be obstructed.
The most wonderful views can be seen:
-La Croissette as far as Palm Beach.
-The Lerins Islands.
