Discover luxury on the French Riviera! Explore hidden gems on the edge of Cannes, with exquisite places to stay and insider insights into sought-after French Riviera locations.

Strategic Planning for International Trade Fairs:

Attending the esteemed Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity, MIPIM, Cannes Film Festival, MIPCOM, or any of the other international trade fairs, which host thousands of guests at the Palais de Festival each year, requires extensive planning.

Companies large and small still have budgets. We recognize the need for options that can adapt to varying group sizes and budgets or for those guests looking for a local and more authentic experience. With many charming little towns on the edge of Cannes, we outline here a few places that stand out on French Riviera.

We also offer private car hire and transport services for individuals as well as groups.

4 Charming Locations on the edge of Cannes:

While Cannes is the center, these surrounding areas have a lot to offer including incredible restaurants for executive dinners, beautiful villas for rent, and unique event experiences that we will explore in upcoming blogs.

Combining the French Riviera with the newest and finest venues and accommodations is an ongoing project and our goal is to keep you in the know. Some of favorite locations on the edge of Cannes include:

1. Juan les Pins

A small beach town. This hidden gem between Cannes and Nice. Great connectivity with just 1 stop by train to the Cannes station. The trip takes just a few minutes and allows you easy access with a short walk to the Palais de Festival and Croisette. The streets are lined with quaint café’s and this little village offers hotels that make you feel at home.

2. Antibes

A small French town vibe. 10 minutes by train from Antibes to the Cannes center. Famous for its old city and Port Vauban, the largest pleasure boat port in Europe.  Antibes, an exclusive location, has maintained its unique character. A picturesque little village with a lot of history, art, culture, and quaint French cafes adorning the streets. Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, located in Antibes, has been a hotspot for the rich and famous.  A popular hotel and venue during red carpet events and parties. Find hotels available in Antibes here.

3. Pointe Croisette

While still Cannes, otherwise known as Port Canto, and many times perceived as “too far away”, is now a go-to location for groups looking for a bit friendlier event pricing and quality accommodation in French Riviera

Many spaces at “Pointe Croisette” have been renovated and boast new and modern spaces. As well, many also have parking nearby or included in the rental. With the bus running up and down the Croisette (free of charge) throughout the event week, there is no need to worry about walking…unless you want a bit of exercise. In that case, a 20 minutes stroll along the Croisette to the Palais is all it takes. Just make sure you have comfortable shoes. Contact us for some of our unique spaces in Pointe Croisette.

4. Nice

Nice is a 25 minutes comminute by train but many guests enjoy staying in Nice. Close to the airport for easy arrival and departure and easy access to train or bus transport to the Cannes center. We have used the bus ourselves and find it easy and convenient, with a drop-off at a collection point in front of the Port of Cannes (on the Croisette). Find the best places to stay in Nice and French Riviera.

Enjoy the beauty of Nice, just 25 minutes by train from Cannes, offering proximity to the airport, stunning locations, and easy access to the Cannes center.
