Situated just over 1 mile from the beaches and ports, the hilltop town of Le Cannet enjoys panoramic views of this gorgeous piece of the Cotes d’Azur. The French Riviera has never looked so fine, and visitors are left spellbound by the beautiful mish-mash of pine and olive trees perfectly blended with a rich artistic and cultural heritage.
This quaint French village was considered part of Cannes until 1778, when it was made into a separate commune. It is situated just to the north of Cannes, and today the two cities form a single urban area.
Combining the rich heritage and cultural sights of this cobbled and tree-filled town with the easy access to the jewel of the French Riviera, Cannes, Le Cannet is a perfect retreat for those looking to shop and relax in beautiful, peaceful surroundings while not being too far removed from the lights and excitement of the city.
Holiday in Le Cannet

From sculptors to ceramicists, gilders, lacquerers, upholsterers, tableware makers, painters, goldsmiths, decorators, engravers and even luthiers; whatever you are looking for, odds are that you will find a skilled master craftsman with exactly what you long for.
Taking a stroll along paves and into ancient edifices, a walk around the old town of Le Cannet is a highly rewarding experience. The Saint-Catherine Church and Saint Bernardin Chapel are both historic buildings, while contemporary and ever-changing exhibitions can be admired at the Chapel.
An incredibly romantic retreat, after taking a hand in hand walk with the person you care about down beautiful French cobbles, end your stroll in front of the Lovers’ Wall of Peynet; a timeless mural painted onto the side of an old house. Livening up the street, it is a symbol of joy in Le Cannet.
