Beautiful traditional villa with 4 double bedrooms (sleeps 6 max 8 persons) set in secluded garden with pool in Cannes centre. Just 20 minutes walk or 5 minutes by car , from the Festival Hall and sandy beaches of Croisette, with convenience stores, fabulous bakeries, brasseries and cafes nearby.

The space

This detached villa is a rare gem. It is secluded but close to the heart of Cannes, just 1.2 km to Festival Hall, 20 minutes walk to the seafront and beaches. It preserves early 20th century architecture whilst providing comfort and modernity throughout. It has been refurbished by leading UK architect. The result is a combination of Provencale simplicity and sympathetic modernisation, retaining most of the original features. Although you are minutes from the centre of Cannes, the walled cottage garden and pool provide an atmosphere of privacy and tranquillity. The garden is shaded with Mediterranean shrubs, orange and fig trees and the patio, shaded by vines provides an ideal space for al fresco dining.
Internally, all finishes are of an exceptional high standard and combine traditional materials including marble and granite. The property offers versatile accommodation :
4 double bedrooms:
-master bedroom with four poster bed, dressing room and en suite marble bathroom
- double bedroom with double bed and walk in shower room
2 double rooms with twin beds or made up as king size beds
with walk in shower room

Fully equipped kitchen with granite worktops and marble table and chairs.

I love Claudine's villa. It was utterly beautiful! The garden is stunning and it's a short walk into the main area in Cannes. The location is quiet and idyllic. My daughter loved feeding the lizards and tortoises in the garden. The pool is glorious. Highly recommend.

Response from Claudine:
Thank you Lucia for your feedback. your comments have been taken on board. regarding the gardener, indeed he should have announced himself ,but from our/ his perspective , he has been with us many years and he is so used to coming that he didn't think about it. I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay at Picciola, and we hope to see you back in Cannes in the near future.

We were 3 couples and a 2-year old staying for 6 nights. The pool and outdoor space were fantastic - we were really only inside to cook or sleep. The location was very convenient to the main parts of Cannes - Le Croisette, the market, the beach, Le Suquet, were all about a 20-minute walk. Granted, there are a couple of good hills in the way, but that didn't bother us. Grocery store, bakery, restaurants all available within a 7-10 minute walk. The neighbourhood is pretty quiet. The occasional scooter or garbage truck, but nothing you wouldn't expect. The house was clean and well supplied (spices, coffee, towels, that sort of thing). We would not hesitate to book Claudine's house again.

We stayed at the villa for one week and that was one of the loveliest holidays and places we have been to. House is amazing, garden with the pool is just piece of paradise! The location of the villa is super convenient, lots of shops around and croisette is at walking distance. Cloudine, the owner is extremely helpful and was super quick to react on any requests or questions we had. We will definitely go back if possible!

I share my time between London and Cannes and I love it ! Cannes is a lovely city with the most spectacular coastine, beautiful beaches , great for swimming or jogging,best enjoyed in the early morning sun. Food markets are fantastic with lovely fresh fish, fruit and vegetable and if you do not feel like cooking , there is a profusion of good cafes and restaurants for all budgets within a 2 minute walk from the apartment.
