The most pleasant at the Villa du Roc Fleuri, a walking access to the centre and beaches of Cannes. Less than four hundred metres from the Forville market and less than a kilometre from the beaches and the Croisette.
Forville, the best, without forget Meynadier street.
After an early breakfast, head for the Forville market in Le Suquet to be among the first to discover the smells and colours. This is also where many of the products served at La Villa du Roc Fleuri are chosen. Why because local producers are present and offer fresh and varied products according to the seasons. The apples for our apple-ginger jam come from this market.
Take the rue Menadier to discover small shopkeepers, each one more adorable than the next. And if you feel a little hungry, head for the restaurant Chez Pompom, whose concept we love, small dishes to share.
For a breathtaking view, head to the top of the Suquet, dive into this maze of small streets and don’t hesitate to get lost. The atmosphere is exhilarating, the colours pastel and if you feel like culture, why not enter in the Castre Museum
The Old port
Going down the west side of Le Suquet you discover the beaches of Cannes and its extraordinary views of the Esterel mountains. Return to the old port and discover the Quai Saint Pierre, its old riggings and the pretty little fleet of fishing boats. On the other side of the river, another atmosphere, huge yachts and the Palais des Festivals with of course the red steps of the Cannes Festival.
Croisette and Hoche street
I like to walk along the Croisette, between the smell of sun cream and the luxurious palaces, another Cannes atmosphere, certainly not my favourite, but an atmosphere all the same. At the end of this famous croisette, you can discover the Canto port and especially the rose garden, as pleasant to the eyes as to the nose.
Why not take a little tour of the port to put yourself in the shoes of a billionaire on his enormous yacht for five minutes?
And to come back down to earth and take the road to the Villa du Roc Fleuri, stroll along rue Hoche, my favourite street, why: a southern atmosphere par excellence. Terraces lined up in the sun and pastis at every brasserie, but you’ll also find a great choice of super pleasant restaurants. Not forgetting our favourite tea shop, Collection T.
Because Cannes is not only the Croisette, but a multitude of atmospheres, take the time to stroll a whole day in its heart.
