Cannes - The Place for Wealthy

Sunday, 18 October 2009

cannesEveryone heard of Cannes. And the most famous city of the French Riviera is associated with different events and people from person to person. But Cannes, first of all, is the perfect place forvery wealthy people and celebrities. And anyone wants to live as beautiful and luxury as possible.

Enjoy some statistic data for introduction. So, Cannes is a small town on the Mediterranean shore of France, near to the Napoule, with the population of residents of approximately 70 thousand people. The Mediterranean climate is here in the town and its suburbs, with typical soft moderate temperature regime within a year; and the indicators of average temperature is the evidence for that, with 10 degrees in winter, and 13 degrees in spring, while in summer the temperature is 21 degrees, and 16 degrees in the autumn. The town now is spread for 9 kilometers along the sea shore, including the popular La Croisette Quay, Antibes Street, Walk of Freedom and the Festival Palace, the place to hold the legendary Cannes Festival, being the most prestigious Cinema Festival in the world.

 

We are glad to make a short excursion to the past to let you know how come that a small town in France gained the reputation of the main resort at Cote d'-Azur. The first settlement was founded here in the year 42 A.D. when the Romans set the dwelling called Aegtina here. The town was renamed approximately thousand years ago for Cannes, and as experts state the word «Cannes» comes from the plant growing here in the reed. During the middle Ages these lands were possessed by one of the monasteries, and Cannes was the ordinary fishing village (!). The situation was like that till XIX century when the moderate and comfortable climate and beauty of the shore attracted the attention of people.  

The actual «founder» of the modern Cannes is the English lord Brougham who incidentally visited this place in 1834. He liked the place so much that he constructed the residence here and lived there. When he died, the high society of the entire Europe came to say good bye to him, the lord was the former chancellor of Great Britain. The European aristocrats appreciated the beauty of the last shelter of Brougham and that was like a triggering point to invest into the lands in Cannes and build their villas there. And when the country road along the sea shore turned into the three-kilometer luxury La Croisette Quay two centuries ago with the plenty of hotels, cafes and stores, Cannes was titled as one of the best resorts. Tourists first arriving to Cannes face hotels, which are over 100 and a lot more tour residences. The range of hotel services does impress. You have a room subject to your taste and budget. The luxury place at Cote d'-Azur cannot do without four-star and five-star hotels, though there are cheaper rooms also for any class of people.

Cannes has been the elite resort for every time in the back, and here you enjoy the atmosphere of well-fed luxury and if you like the active rest for the youth, including extreme kind of relaxation, you feel hard to find something to satisfy the tastes and preferences.  Cannes is the place to relax, not the place to feel the extreme scent of freedom and permissiveness. Nevertheless, Cannes helps to experience bright and strong feeling as well, offering a plenty of gambling joints where the access is available for men in smoking and ladies should wear evening dresses to play there. La Croisette Casino is famous in the sphere of games that is situated in the Festival Palace. This Casino Houses has about three hundred game machines, Moreover, those who prefer cards and roulette, find something interesting for them also, winning and losing money.

The Cannes Film Festival is the most legendary event that is held in the Festival Palace. If you arrive to the town in May, you will see the celebrities and famous people all over the town not only on the red carpet. Cannes is the place where people are accustomed to celebrities and they do no express their love and obtrusive wish to talk to them, that it is easy for stars to walk in the streets freely. Apart from Cannes Film Festival a range of congresses and sessions are held in Cannes yielding to only Paris in the national scale. There is the Walk of Fame in Cannes created like that in Hollywood, and also the charming square to honor Prosper Merimee who lived and died here.

Those who appreciate the luxury and beautiful things will get lost in Cannes with the abundance of splendor. The most luxury boutiques with designer clothes and shoes, with fur items, with elite jewelry and perfume products, and all other things that would refer to the category of exclusive, prestigious and extremely expensive stuff may be acquired here, in Antibe Street, that goes straight throughout the town parallel too the se ashore and reaching the legendary La Croisette Quay.

It is useless to say something about La Croisette Quay. All the lavish boutiques and stores, the most prestigious hotels and expensive restaurants and cafes, located in the most elegant building of the town, presenting the most varied menus and wine cards, plus 8 kilometer of sand beaches and dams with thousands of yachts and boats, and you will have the entire picture of what La Croisette Quay is.

And who cares that people want to live a wealthy and beautiful life there?
