2 BEDROOMS + OFFICE + 2 BATHS - in CANNES, walk to the beach, close to Sophia Antipolis

We live in Cannes, in the French Riviera.
Our confortable and sunbathed apartment is on the top floor of a small building, with a panoramic view of ills, city & sea. It is close to the beach (10 minutes walk) and located on a quiet street of a vibrant neighbourhood, at few steps from all amenities.
It is beautifully furnished and totally renovated. It has a large and fully equipped kitchen in Provençal style with deluxe appliances and two modern bathrooms, one with corner bathtub and marble tiles and the other one in Maroccan style with a big shower. The kitchen and the dining-living room open on a front big balcony where we love to enjoy our meals from Spring to Fall. The two bedrooms open on a back veranda with a panoramic view of Cannes' ills and Grasse's mountains.
The apartment has also a 90m2 private rooftop terrace, with young olive trees.

Rooms and amenities:
- Living/dining room: bathed in light from its wide picture windows, the living and dining room is a large space opened up to the kitchen
- Newly remodeled designer chef's kitchen in a Provençal style, fully equipped

- Office : it can be used as a third bedroom
- Garage with bicycles and scooters (both for children and adults) and a private parking in front of the entrance.

What you will love in the neighborhood?
We are located in an attractive neighborhood at 10 minute walk to the beach, a few minutes drive to the city center and 1 hour to Italy. The neighborhood is walkable, lively, but also quite an safe. Everything is at hand: bakeries, the Provençal market for local fruit & vegetables, fish and meat; restaurants, pharmacies and department stores. You can go downtown, the Croisette and the Palais du Festival in 15 minutes by bus (it stops at 200m from the house).
The local bus network is very efficient and inexpensive. For 1 €, you can go to Nice, Antibes, Saint Raphael, Montecarlo and all the main areas of the French Riviera.
In an hour by train, along the sea, you can reach the Italian city of Sanremo, or continue for the Cinque Terre. Two hours drive to the French and Italian Alps, and 1.5 hour to Marseille and Aix-en-Provence. You also are 20 minutes from Sophia Antipolis, where are located all the major university's and ICT companies' research centers.
If you want to enjoy a getaway in Europe, you can take boat to Corsica and Sardinia or fly low-cost to various European capitals (including Paris). The port and airport are in Nice, 30 km drive from our home.

This apartment is our primary residence. It has nice things and is meticulously clean. We make room for you but our staff is inside. We are looking for someone responsible and respectful who will treat our apartment with care as if it was his own.
