Why property in Cannes?

Posted by admin in Property Investment, Property Letters, The South of France | September 12th 2005

It is a fact of Europe today that people are demanding more and more access to sunshine, wherever they may live and work. The Cote d’Azur has superb beaches, a beautiful sea, a stunning backdrop of mountains and snow, and quaint and ancient villages boasting fabulous cuisine.

It is only an hour and a half by car to some of France’s famous ski slopes.

What is not so well known is that 1.8 million business trips are made to the Cote d’Azur each year. There are year round Congresses, conventions and trade fairs, and over 200 national and international professional events. Outside of the main summer season there are major Congresses and festivals in Cannes EVERY MONTH OF THE YEAR. Starting with the most famous, the Cannes Film Festival, there are also the MIPIM, MIDEM, 3 GSM Congress, MIPCOM and a host of others. There is great demand for high quality business accommodation

The development and infrastructure to cope with this growth has been put in place over the last 20 years, and continues to improve.

Cannes is undoubtedly the centre of it all.

EasyJet and others offer Nice-Paris for €22, and London, Bristol, Frankfurt, Geneva for similarly ludicrous prices
