A place to see and be seen, Cannes is the flashy zenith of the Cote d’Azur’s glitzy and glamorous resorts. Offering first-rate people watching opportunities, the palm tree and palace-lined Promenade de la Croisette is one of the world’s premier seafront boulevards, and a place of fine dining, popping corks, and gleaming yachts. Whether you’re looking for sun, sea or famous festivals, the Capital of Cinema truly is a 5-star destination. View more

La Croisette is the catwalk of choice for sunglasses-toting A-listers - and whether you want to strut your stuff beside golden sands and turquoise waters - or sink into the anonymous shade of a café to watch the show - Cannes has something for every inclination. Of course, the city is synonymous with the silver screen’s finest, and celeb-spotting is a sport here when the movie world’s stars decamp to the south of France, for the annual film festival. Tuxes and flowing gowns float down the streets, when camera flashes and exclusive parties light up the city during this box office event. While souped up sports cars roll along the streets, and giant yachts flash in the harbour’s sun, the rising Le Suquet neighbourhood offers a perfect counterpoint to the extravagances, and some of the best views of the city. Cannes’ oldest quarter is its most charming and authentic, with restaurants scattered among the narrow stone streets plating up ingredients from the Marche Forveille market. Stuffed to the brim with the freshest, sun-blessed produce, you can try out some Pissaladiere – a flat bread of anchovies and caramelised onions, enhanced with the delicate fragrance of Provencal herbs. A trip out across the waves to Saint Marguerite’s island is another escape, and a place to crunch pine cones while hiking forest paths, before soaking in views back to the mainland from the fortress’s mighty ramparts.
