At Home in Le Cannet

Place Bellevue, Le Cannet

This is where we live. Discovered by chance, on a visit to the Musėe Bonnard, we decided immediately to make Le Cannet our home. It feels like a quiet French village, small, intimate, welcoming, yet just up the hill from Cannes, overlooking the bay.

We walk to the shops every day and greet our neighbours.  Every encounter is warm and full of French courtesy, our cheese carefully selected and wrapped, our café served with a tiny, perfect chocolate, smiles, waves and friendly words as we walk through town. There is an innate elegance and charm here that completely wins us over and makes us feel at home.

In the old village, artisan studios line the historic Rue St Sauveur. This is where the Le Cannet Art Association presents ongoing exhibitiions, opened twice a month with a wine and pizza reception on the street. All part of the general joie de vivre, as friends, neighbours and artists gather to celebrate our creative endeavours. Everyone welcome!
