5 Extravagant Activities To Do In Cannes
Whether you are in Cannes for the Film Festival or for a getaway, the beautiful city truly has everything you need. Here are five luxurious activities to include to your Riviera itinerary.
Enjoy Gourmet Dining With Breathtaking Settings
Cannes is dotted with many fine restaurants serving exceptional cuisine that is delicately infused with Provencal and Mediterranean traditions. Some of our top picks include:
La Palme d’Or features views of La Croisette, the Bay of Cannes and the Mediterranean Sea. Inside, the two-Michelin-starred restaurant is decorated in an elegant Art-Deco style for an intimate dining environment.
The highlight of L’Oasis is the terrace surrounded by exotic greenery in a garden. Guests are seated under luxe shady trees, while the two-Michelin-starred restaurant serves up southern French dishes with a hint of Eastern influence.
Hire A Private Helicopter
Travelling by helicopter is the perfect way to view the coastline and explore different parts of the Riviera in a fraction of the time. Take a break from the festival scene and fly a short 15-minutes ride to Saint-Tropez for some beach time.
Go On VIP Wine Tours
Treat yourself to an unforgettable luxury wine tour. Cannes has a variety of travel companies – there are those that will whisk you around in a day by helicopter to the most coveted domaines and there are some that will organise a week-long extravaganza of winery dinners and exclusive tastings. Only the most luxurious hotels are reserved for your nightly accommodation.
Shop To Your Heart’s Content
Cannes is a fantastic place to hunt down the latest sartorial essentials and if you are looking to satisfy your desire for luxury, you can’t miss La Croisette.
On the exclusive boulevard is a Harry Winston Salon – one of the handful boutiques available in France. The brand showcases the ultimate in fine jewellery and high-end watchmaking, which will impress even the poshest shopper.
Delve Into A World Of Architecture And History
If art is your passion but you want to go beyond arthouse films, you may want to try one of the history tours. Le Suquet, the Old Town, is a great sightseeing spot with streets full of restaurants and antique shops. The ancient 22-metres medieval tower is a must-see for architectural aficionados.
