A May 2006 trip to Cannes by LitlLulu

Quote: Wanting to head to Cannes during the internationally renowned film festival? Make sure you plan early as hotels and accommodations are not only extremely expensive, but get booked quickly. Here, I will give you suggestions of where to stay and what to do besides watching films!

Pierre & Vacances Residence Cannes Beach

Hotel | "Résidence Pierre et Vacances Cannes Beach"

The Résidence at Cannes Beach is the perfect place for a family! Each room is apartment-style, with a small kitchenette, and can comfortably sleep five people. There is a private pool, but a two-minute walk across the street to the beach.

The Résidence is located in Cannes La Bocca which is about 10 minutes by bus from Centre Ville (downtown Cannes) and about 20-30 minutes walking on the beach. It is a nice place to stay, especially during the film festival because downtown is extremely crowded and expensive during the film festival.

This location is central, as there is a bank, supermarket, and outdoor market, within walking distance of the résidence.

The Quay


The Quay feels like you are actually in Ireland. Owned by Irish and Scottish people, they make you feel right at home. Making friends with people there is incredibly easy! We used to go to this pub to watch World Cup games, that was the best! Even watching something as simple as the French Open or the Tour de France is completely worth watching if you're watching it there!
