This year the Cannes Film Festival is being held from May 15th to 26th.
If you want to take in the atmosphere but prefer to stay somewhere quieter, Blackwood has a selection of villas just 40 minutes away from Cannes.
Our holiday villas are in the countryside towns Fayence, Montauroux, Callian, Seillans and Bargemon, which are just a short drive from Cannes through the Esterel hills and past lake Saint Cassien.
The traffic is impossible in Cannes during the film festival. It can easily take an hour to get from one side of town to the other. But if you rent a villa you can drive to the station at Grasse or Mandelieu-la-Napoule and catch the train.
Another advantage of staying in a villa is that you can also enjoy a quiet Provencal holiday before or after your trip to the film festival.
