If you’re seeking sun-kissed glamour, then Cannes certainly is the place. The home of the world-famous Cannes Film Festival, this glorious French Riviera town has been a favourite with the beau-monde for centuries. And for good reason too; brimming with rich culture, natural beauty and a vibrant foodie scene, this is a dream summer destination.

Whether you’re visiting for the festival in May or at any other time of the year, these six breathtaking villas in Cannes are sure to delight.

Villa Claire

Villas in Cannes generally set a high standard for excellence, and Villa Claire certainly doesn't disappoint. This outstanding example of contemporary architecture is perched in the hills of Cannes, giving guests sweeping panoramic views of Cannes Bay, Cap d'Antibes, and Esterel mountains. With five elegant bedrooms welcoming up to ten guests, it’s a wonderfully tranquil retreat to return to after a busy day at the film festival.

Villa Madeline

Tucked into the forested hillsides that rise up behind Cannes, Villa Madeline is a magnificent five-bedroom villa with a striking, contemporary look and heaps of sun-soaked outdoor space. The villa’s pièce de résistance is its spectacular rooftop terrace. In addition to an array of sun loungers and sizable, moveable sun umbrellas, the terrace features a private swimming pool and enjoys unbeatable views of Cannes and the surrounding coastline.

Villa Alang Alang

If villas could win Oscars, Villa Alang Alang would certainly have a brace of trophies resting upon the mantlepiece. A sprawling villa welcoming up to 18 guests, Gilles Pellerin’s striking architectural design is married with Balinese-inspired interiors, endowing the villa with a sense of grace and balance. This extraordinary villa is one of the most sumptuous spots in Southern Europe and has everything you could imagine and more, from its own spa to a private beach, you will never want to leave.

Villa Shine

From Villa Shine, it’s just a short drive to Cannes Festival’s HQ. Tucked away in the upmarket, mimosa-lined Californie Pézou hillside district, one can see over Cannes’ rooftops all the way to the Lérins Islands. To capitalise on the remarkable panoramas, this exquisite villa boasts a terrific array of outdoor social areas. Meanwhile, inside, you’ll find three magnificent reception rooms, two lounges with open fires and another dining table for 12, all looking seawards.

Villa Cassi

A dazzling villa in an outstanding position, Villa Cassi showcases the very best of Cannes. From the charming terraced garden, complete with a glittering infinity pool, to the chic and minimalist interiors, this villa embodies elegance and style. With eight exquisite bedrooms welcoming up to 16 guests, Villa Cassi exemplifies refinement.

Villa Leo

Tucked away in the green hills surrounding and overlooking Cannes is contemporary Villa Leo. The villa is a nature lover's dream, with four bedrooms and an additional one-bedroom apartment found across three stylish floors. The look throughout Villa Leo is modern chic. Neutral tones, clean lines and plenty of modern facilities inside perfectly complement the futuristic-style exterior.
