The French Riviera
Long before it became the mecca of the sun-worshipping 21st Century tourist, the Riviera was popular among foreigners as a winter resort.
Lord Brougham, the Lord Chancellor of England, was accustomed to the winter in Nice but in 1834 was forced by an outbreak of cholera in Provence to stay in Cannes. He liked it so much he built a house where he stayed until his death in 1868.
Other famous Englishmen who made their home on the Riviera, were the writers Somerset Maugham in Cap Ferrat, Graham Greene in Antibes, and the film actor/writer, Sir Dirk Bogarde, who was President of the Cannes Film Festival in 1984, when he lived near Grasse.
Another foreign colony was the Russian nobility, who until the Revolution in 1917, was regularly joined by the Imperial Court. Their legacy is a number of beautiful Russian Orthodox churches in Cannes, Nice and Menton.
The Americans began to make their mark in the 1920s - Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford from the film world, Ernest Hemingway and Scott Fitzgerald, the writers, and the young Americans with Money. They introduced jazz, the music of Cole Porter and sunbathing. There was more jazz at the end of the second world war stimulated by the US Naval base: the Juan-les-Pins Jazz Festival dates from this period.
In the 1930s many German artists in exile settled in Sanary-sur-Mer. Other communities of artists have been established in Vallauris, where Picasso revived the traditional craft of pottery and which now hosts a bi-annual International Festival of Ceramic Art (July to mid-October), and in St-Paul-de-Vence, where James Baldwin, the American author lived for many years.
Monaco, where fortunes have been lost and won on the gaming tables, still attracts a significant number of wealthy tax exiles.
With its sun-soaked beaches, pristine port and elegant boutiques, Cannes is the most glamorous jewel of the French Riviera in the south of France. The impressive luxury yachts moored in the marina and the chic array of restaurants, shops and hotels create the sense of glitz and glamour that has become synonymous with the seaside resort, attracting an affluent and stylish set to visit each year. Cannes basks in the balmy Mediterranean climate all year round, making the resort an ideal location for sun seekers and people-watchers.
The promenade of La Croisette is world famous, running alongside the shoreline of Cannes. Watch the world go by with a coffee break or a glass of wine on the boulevard or soak up the atmosphere with a jog along the coast. Or, make the most of the weather with a visit to the public beaches on the boulevard, like Plage Macé or Plage de Casino, which is close to the Palais des Festivals and Cannes Station. However you like to spend your leisure time, the views here are unrivalled, so don’t forget to take some photos!
From restaurants to bars, clubs to casinos, there are countless things to do at night in Cannes. La Baoli, just off Port Pierre Canto is one of the most luxurious nightclubs in Cannes. Expect opulent décor, glasses of champagne and a celebrity guest list, especially when the Film Festival takes place each year in May.
One of the most prestigious events in the calendar, the Cannes Film Festival has brought together international movie stars, directors and producers once a year since its establishment in 1946. Held at the Palais des Festivals, the annual red-carpet gala oozes elegance and fascination, watched on by spectators around the world.
Not only does the Palais des Festivals hold the Cannes Film Festival, it also plays host to a series of congresses throughout the year, from the world’s property marketing in March to the luxury travel market in December, which is why a lot of our apartments are located in close proximity to the venue in La Croisette.
