Shopping - Cannes

The main shopping in Cannes is on the Croisette and the rue d'Antibes and the streets running between them. Though there are some interesting shops to be found on the streets to the north of the rue d'Antibes. It is bounded on the West by rue du Marechal Joffre and on the East where the rue d'Antibes meets the Boulevard d'Alsace.

Where to start? Cannes has it all. From the most famous names in Haute Couture - you will find Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent, to name a just few, on the Croisette. There are high end jewellers and watch makers (like Hublot on the Croisette. The famous rue d'Antibes, which is only 50 metres from the apartment is home to countless well know shops and small boutiques alike offering everything from "High Street" fashion (Zara), small specialist shoe shops, of which there are many, to works of art, antiques, home furnishings and beach wear.

Also on the rue d'Antibes you will find FNAC and Darty.

Absolutely not to be missed is the Forville market (Place du Marché Forville; every morning except Mon). To quote Anthony Peregrine of The Daily Telegraph, "Here is a vast Provençal larder where asceticism comes to die. If you are self-catering or planning a picnic, then this is the spot to head for." There are a myriad of cafes around the market so why not set off early, take breakfast and spend some time in one of the most splendid markets I have seen in my 40 year of visiting and living in France. This is not just a fruit and vegetable market. There is every food stuff imaginable, fresh pasta, dried spices and herbs, fish (of course), a salt stall, a mushroom seller and fresh flowers. This market has to be seen to be believed.

You can find almost everything in Cannes if you search long enough! Just let yourself wander around the streets and you will be amazed at what you can find. Happy shopping!
