Simply think of the French Riviera and you start to taste the enormous piles of seafood on café tables. Savor an ice cold Blanc-de-Blanc under a white umbrella. Cannes exudes sophistication and enchantment. Formerly a tiny fishing village, it was transformed by celebrities such as the Aga Khan, the Baron de Rothschild, and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor in the early part of the last century. Oh, and a certain film festival. And it has welcomed crowned princes and movie stars, the wealthy and the beautiful, ever since. Located on France’s Cote d’Azur, a journey of only a few minutes brings you into the wild hills of Provence with the scent of pine, eucalyptus and wild herbs in the air. Soak up the sophistication of Juan-les-Pins, Cap d’Antibes or Monaco on the coast, or venture further up into the pristine snows of the French Alps. Perhaps that’s the secret of Cannes’ success (and the recipe for a great holiday): its endless talent for surprise and reinvention. Cannes is like no other place on earth.
