This area is very popular and highly rated in Cannes as it is the ideal place to invest if you wish to have a good rental return, in view of the numerous congresses organised throughout the year.

It is the most sought after area for those coming to Cannes on holiday.

There are a lot of main residences, with quite recent buildings and offering a dynamic neighbourhood life with all the shops, boutiques, restaurants and public transport nearby.

The Croisette is the place to be, where you can find luxury real estate and splendid properties where the price per square metre can quickly soar, thanks to the sea view offered.
