Activities in Cannes
Located in the middle of the Rue d’Antibes, across from the Lérins Islands, and just a stone’s throw from the finest boutiques along the Croisette, the Cannes Croisette Prestige Apparthotel offers easy access to Cannes’ main attractions.
Forville Market: the ultimate Mediterranean market, high on colour and awash with a thousand fragrances, and featuring every local product: flowers, fruit, vegetables, freshly-caught fish, and traditional produce (olive oil, olives, fresh cheeses, speciality breads, etc.). An antiques market is held on Mondays.
Gourmet shops offering a wide range of specialities can be found nearby in the narrow streets winding through the old part of the city.
Cannes’ main attractions are just a few minutes’ walk from the Cannes Croisette Prestige flats:
The Croisette: one of the most famous seaside promenades, and the ideal destination for a leisurely stroll in the shade of the umbrella pines and palm trees, while admiring the view of the Lérins Islands.
With its fine sandy beaches, luxury hotels, cafés, restaurants, casinos and deluxe stores, visitors cannot help but fall under the Croisette’s spell.
Le Suquet: this district overlooks the Vieux-Port and provides exceptional views over the Bay of Cannes and the Lérins Islands.
It is home to the Musée de la Castre, in the ruins of the mediaeval castle of the Lérins monks.
Rue Meynadier: a pedestrian street with a multitude of small gourmet food shops (pastries, deli products, fresh pasta, cheeses and wine) and ready-to-wear boutiques.
The Bay’s beaches, for wellbeing at all times: relaxing on a beach mat beneath a parasol, water-skiing, sailing, windsurfing, parasailing… lunch on the beach, candlelit dinners, and so much more.
Cannes by night: restaurants, piano bars, casinos, shows, nightclubs (Palais, Baoli, Palm Beach Club, le , etc.) – just some of the trendiest and most glamorous venues for finishing your evening in style!

Arts and crafts: the French Riviera is a hotspot for tradition and creativity. The full range of skills demonstrated by local artists and craftsmen can be witnessed in a number of areas, the best known being Biot and the Vieux Moulin glassworks, and Vallauris and its Rue des Potiers.
La Castre (primitive-art collection)
Located in the hills above the old part of Cannes, the Musée de la Castre, deemed a historical monument, overlooks the Croisette, the bay and the Lérins Islands. The museum’s collections offer visitors an insight into Orientalism, antiquities, ethnography and primitive art.
La Malmaison: permanent and temporary exhibitions
La Malmaison is located on the Croisette and hosts three major exhibitions each year. This art centre regularly spotlights such famous painters as Matisse, Ozenfant and Picasso, for whom the French Riviera represented an inexhaustible source of inspiration.
Musée de la Mer, on the Île Sainte-Marguerite
Housed in the oldest part of the historical Fort Royal, on the Île Sainte-Marguerite, the museum beckons visitors to discover the state prison and the cell occupied by the Man in the Iron Mask, the mysterious prisoner who was incarcerated there for 11 years. Visitors can also see the murals by Jean Le Gac, as well as the equipment used for underwater and terrestrial archaeology.
Designed by artist Jean-Gabriel Domergue, the villa is an art venue surrounded by a magnificent garden.
Set in an idyllic setting amid an unspoilt natural environment, these tiny outcroppings in the Mediterranean are home to a unique collection of fauna and flora, and boast a remarkable history that blends the mystery enshrouding the Man in the Iron Mask and the serenity of Cistercian monks.
A shuttle service can take you from the Vieux Port of Cannes to the islands of Saint-Honorat or Sainte-Marguerite in less than 15 minutes.
You can also enjoy a number of sports activities, including tennis, swimming, golf and horse-riding, within 10 km from the Cannes Croisette Prestige.
