A short travel blog by Mark Walters from the UK:
We travelled from Sussex, UK to Nice via Gatwick.
We stayed in one of Hotel Le Florian’s apartments on Rue du Commandant André. We have stayed in Cannes several times before, but the Hotel Le Florian was an excellent choice. The continental breakfast was more than we could eat (and we did try), the apartment was clean and spacious, with the location being excellent.
We visited many places during our 8 day stay. St Tropez, Grasse and the Villa Domergue.
Villa Domergue was well worth the Bus ride and the 10-15 minute walk, even though it was 30+ degrees and there was no shade!
We travelled to St Tropez on the boat that leaves Le Vieux Port. The boat trip was great and it was lovely to arrive in style!
Grasse was beautiful as well. The perfume museum and the views were excellent. The old town was very picturesque and the fact that they were spraying perfumed mist in the streets was very welcome in the heat.
We travelled mostly using the busses, which we were really impressed with.
We ate in a couple of places – the Marina Caffe and Pizza Cresci. Both very good food, service and value for money.
Cannes is a place we have been to many times and always love returning. We hope to come back many times!
