Cannes - its region and its real estate market

The city of Cannes is located in the Provence - Alpes - Côte d'Azur region in Southern France, just to the Nord - East of the Esterel mountain range, just 36 km from Nice, 55 km from Monaco and approx. 60 km from the Italian border. Cannes is renowned around the world not only as a beautiful seaside resort with its legendary Croisette - boulevard, but also for its famous Film Festival that attracts each year the world's most cherished actors, directors and industry heavyweights. Cannes began its ascent in the 19th century when English Lord Brougham, Chancellor of the Exchequer, established a base in the then - undiscovered fishing village. Soon, many more members of the English aristocracy followed his example and built magnificent estates there to escape the harsh English winters. Since this time, Cannes has attracted the High Society from around the world, a trend that was further strengthened after WW II when Cannes became the host of one of the world's most important film festivals. With its many legendary luxury hotels, restaurants and shops, Cannes has become as symbol of the "French good life".
