Looking for a family holiday

by starkraving


I'd like to take my family to the Rivierra but I'm struggling to find somewhere suitable. My requirements are:

1. Suitable for families (my daughter is 12 years old)
2. Hotel or apartments with pool (not camp sites or chalets)
3. Resort should have entertainment in the evenings suitable for families
4. Close to train station - I don't want to drive whilst on holiday !
5. Plenty of restaurants

I don't really want to stay a few miles out of resorts. I like Nice but I think it probably is a bit too big.

Generally, we tend to spend a lot of time by the pool, but going off on the odd day trip. So a nice hotel is important. In the evenings we like to visit restaurants then walk around the resort or watch live bands or magicians etc.

Can anyone recommend anywhere ? Thanks.

Live bands, magicians, family entertainment, pool, close to train station? Sorry to be a bit negative but I'm not really surprised you're struggling to find somewhere suitable. What you have described as your requirements doesn't match very well with life on the Cote d'Azur.If you drop some things off that list Antibes or Villefranche might fit the bill. Otherwise look for dedicated resort villages perhaps Spain?

Giraglia Hotel in Port Grimaud has a pool and is on the beach Port Grimaud is a walled town with lots of restaurants directly across the bay from St Tropez and it has a ferry about 10 times a day, in the evening cross the road to the the open air hotel Praries de La Mer and watch the nightly entertainment or use one of their three beach bars. The bad news? The nearest train station is in St Raphael but you can use the navettes to go from town to town around the Gulf of St Tropez however Praries de La Mer has a small office offering day trips to most of the big towns and sites.
What you are looking for does not really exist on the Cote D'Azur

Ther is another hotel I think it is called beavallon but it sbaout 500 meters from Praries de La Mer but it does have apool but no beach you would have to walk to Praries de La Mer to use theirs

Travel Tips for Cannes


by JohnnySpangles

Next to the Palais De Festivals. Free to get in. No membership required. If you want to just play the slots no passport required. Access to tables requires smart clothes and passport. Go in the evening, the women in Cannes treat the slots like a night at the Bingo.

Bars just off seafront are cheaper

by rachel_sun

Cannes is a special place and it makes anyone who visits special.I was pleasantly surprised at the prices of most things and enjoyed my brief visit there.Cannes is easy to get around . just wear a good comfy pair of shoes.There are plenty of trendy clothes shops and just off the seafront was a market which i found some great food in.I bought some cooked pizza slices and cakes and took them back to my hotel.I also bought some perfume there which was a reasonable price.£8 i think.
Cannes has a mild climate and from May til Oct it has beach and swimwear weather,,, 20c- 28c.When i went in Oct it was 26c most days.
While in Cannes try to go inland abit too and see some worthwjile places.Grasse for one is well worth visiting.

La Holandesa in Cannes on the French Riviera

by La_Holandesa

"CANNES Très jolie !!! :o)"

I've been here many, many times and I looooove the mediterean way of life!!! :o)

Cannes is beautiful. It has a wonderful atmosphere, constant gentle sea breeze.

One of the most beautiful cities on the Cote d' Azur. The city is part of the Cote d' Azur, that hundred-mile stretch of the southeast France also known to the world as the French Riviera.

Cannes is the byword for year round enjoyment, which can be found close at hand. A place where culture, shopping, relaxation, sport and leisure meet.

In the heart of Cannes is The Croisette, the Palais des Festivals, the beaches, the marina, the boutiques.

Palais des Festivals - The Palais and convention center has turned Cannes into one of the most popular convention cities in the world. The Cannes International Film Festival is held here.

Promenade de La Croisette - One of the most famous promenades in the world.
For three kilometres following the curve of the bay all the way to Port Canto, the casino of Palm Beach. You can find your way back to the city center (centre ville) by walking along the famous rue d'Antibes, renowned for its international designer boutiques and world-class shopping. The rue Meynadier, restricted to pedestrian traffic only, runs near the rue d'Antibes and has excellent shops and boutiques of every kind. It is also less expensive, with many more trendy shops that open onto the street.

There are several restaurants, crêperies, bistros, green grocers and more, which are full of life...from morning till night!

Marché Forville is the covered produce market in Cannes. It is a lively, colourful, a very noisy French affair taking up an entire city block. Stalls sell vegetables, fruit, fish, oysters, every conceivable variety of paté and olives marinated in a thousand flavours. The flower market lies at the western end of the covered area. On a Monday, Forville transforms itself into a Flea Market (Marché Brocante).


De la mer et des plages de Cannes….. The beaches are sandy and the color of the sea…
The sea is wowwwww, so beautiful blue!!!

Is the bluest of all the European seas. It is a deep cobalt blue…azur. One finds very small waves only when the Mistral, the famous wind of Southern France, has passed.

Isles de lerins / Lerins Islands:

Thirty minutes across the bay from Cannes you'll find this small island where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned (you can even visit his cell).
See more in my tips about it.

"Cannes, town of the festivities and filmstars.."

Hollywood hot shots have swarmed into Cannes, particularly during the International Film Festival.

Cannes it’s known throughout the world for its prestigious film festival in May.
But also have the Shopping festival, MIDEM for music fans around the world, Festival De Danse and so many more.

With its wonderful year-round climate, Cannes provides the ideal setting for a fantastic working visit, artist retreat, or vacation holiday. La Croisette, beaches, seafood restaurants, cafes and terraces, as well as Le Suquet (the old quarter), local Provençal fairs, the "Vieux Port", artisans' areas, antique markets and world class shopping, are all within a short distance, providing a glamorous backdrop to the beautiful Mediterranean.

Cannes is located for local daytrips and travel; 45 minutes from Monaco, an hour from Italy and 5 hours from either Switzerland or Spain. Plus, the climate is one of the best in France with an average of over 300 days of sun per year!

Airport: Nice.
Airport ranks as one of the most active gateways to France and the Mediterranean. The airport is located 7 km west of the city centre and is the main port of arrival for passengers to the Côte d'Azur.

Cannes is heaven for shopaholics, who will never tire of the countless boutiques!
