Cannes France is a glamour Private Jet destination
renowned for its annual film festival that dots the destination with jet-set stars and talent from around the world, is a prime destination for your next summer charter getaway. The year-around resort town is a star in itself on the Cote d’Azur and truly shines during the summer months. While the town is on the mainland of France, there are also islands just off the coast – or “croisette” – worth working into your French Riviera retreat.
Most Luxurious Hotel Suite
Hotel Barriere Le Majestic. If the name didn’t give it away, this hotel is luxury on the Mediterranean. The suites, the spa, the scenery: it’s majestic indeed. It even has a private screening theater should you want to have a viewing on your visit.
Book the French designer Christian Dior Suite. The suite is draped in luxurious hues of grey and rouge accents, from the Louis XVI chairs in the grand dining area to the pristine bed linens. You’ll feel right at home, as if it was your own French apartment…and if can be starting at 22,000 euros a night.
Hardest to Get Table
La Guérite. Just off of the coast of Cannes is Sainte Marguerite Island. That is where you will find La Guerite along with your best meal of the trip. Charter a private boat to La Guerite to dine on authentic Mediterranean food. You’ll also find a Petanque field good for a game and a few good laughs among friends. Famous friends linger here too; Sylvester Stallone to name one. The open-air restaurant embraces the local colors and the view of the coast line as its decor.
Aside from dining, you can simply relax here also. The beach area is lined with chaises for sunbathing at water’s edge. La Guerite opens every day for lunch. There is also another location in St. Barts.
Exclusive Experience Money CAN Buy
Molinard perfumerie opens the door of its private mansion in Grasse to welcome VIPs.
Schedule a VIP perfume classes with one or two of your closest friends. (Maximum is three people.) Create your own eau de parfum with the best in the business- professional perfumerie. Nothing is more personal than a signature fragrance and nothing more exclusive than having your very own customized to your liking.
Don’t worry about being generous with your spritzes. Molinard keeps your secret potion recipe on file and will whip up more when you’re out and send to you, wherever in the world you might be.
The mansion is an under-an-hour bus ride from Cannes.
Only in Cannes
Ok, this might not be Cannes proper, but it’s definitely an “only in” experience. Saint Honorat is another one of the Islands of Cannes and faces the Croisette. It is a quick 15-minute boat ride from Cannes’ mainland.
Here on Saint Honorat, and only here, the local Monks of the Abbey of Lerins make their own wine and liquors. The monks themselves take every step in the wine-making process. The not-yet-famous-but-delicious Lerincello is to die for and only available here.
Hottest Local Spot
l’Atelier Joseph. It’s location of this restaurant is one of a kind- perched on a hill with an unobstructed view over the bay. Here, you will experience the authentic Cannes, a local village vibe and warm atmosphere. During the summer months, lounge on the panoramic terrace. Nosh on fresh and thoughtfully paired ingredients.
