7 Things to do in Cannes ft. Chantz Clothing

7 Things to do in Cannes ft. Chantz Clothing

to do in cannes

I was in Cannes last month with my lovely gorgeous muffin man of a boyfriend- also know as Justin. It was our first time in the French Riviera, and whilst I’ve been to Paris and a few other French towns, I was the most pleasantly surprised by Cannes and what it had to offer. I didn’t expect such a luxuriously pretty place with as many lavish amenities. Nor did I know the sunsets would be some of the most caramel coloured skies I’d ever seen.

Now some of this to do list is the touristy stuff every traveller knows to do, but some of it is recommend by fabulous locals and wandering friends. Trust that I know how you feel about the tourist stuff, but sometimes, thousands and thousands of people actually have the RIGHT idea…

1.Lounge on a private beach

Cannes has several exclusive beach clubs with great food, amazing service and the right amount of personal space! Day loungers can run up to 40 euros, but the experience is worth the splurge. Be prepared to see some of the most tanned people of your life though! The French Riviera takes its tanning VERY seriously…

2. Go shopping on the Rue D’antibes

The Rue D’antibes is a pretty little street with shops ranging from Zara and Mac to Prada and Fendi. Even if you’re not looking to ball out and return home with 20 pounds of extra luggage, it’s a lovely stroll and great for people watching. The South of France has great taste, so there are many small boutiques with affordable pieces you couldn’t really find anywhere else.

3. Rent a car and drive to Monaco

Having lunch in the quaint little town of Eze (the midpoint between Cannes and Monaco) was one of the highlights of the French Riviera. We rented a gorgeous convertible SL from Sixt rental cars to spend the afternoon in Monaco. Sixt is our european equivalent of Avis, it’s affordable, and has good customer service. The drive along along the coast was just phenomenal. Not to skip the local hotspot, we stopped along the way in Eze at Le Nid d’aigle for a luscious lunch with a view! *Note: Monaco is a sllooowww place…

4. Indulge on a nice dinner

I don’t think I have to go much into this. The cuisine in Cannes is fantastic. There were dozens of unique and elegant restaurants in small alleys to try! I would highly recommend at least once trying a seafood place and ordering a nice bottle of white wine during your stay. You seriously deserve it!

5. Visite the Forville market

It’s a travelling luxury to have access to fresh organic fruit. The Forville Market is a morning market right in downtown Cannes. There are all kinds of fresh produce and local products to try. Justin and I stayed in a pretty Airbnb, so it was important to us to be able to have access to some fresh food in our fridge, and some healthy home cooked meals! This market was by far the closest thing to a WholeFoods around! Not to mention, one of the more delicious things to do in Cannes.

6. Stuff yourself with gelato- it’s reaally good

7. Visit Le Suquet

Le Suquet is the old part of Cannes that has a great nightlife scene. The streets come alive at dusk with musicians and artists. The little streets are magical and capture the timelessness of the older french architecture. Le Suquet is worth a visit, it will really give you a sense of the culture and history of Cannes.

    The French Riviera is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited. I was there in 2012 when I also visited Monaco – I just wrote a Blogpost about that – and saw the Formel 1 Race there which was absolutely amazing. I was also in St Tropez which is so famous but in my opinion, Nizza deserves more attention because it’s such a pretty place on earth – love it.
    I really enjoyed your post and the beautiful pictures.
