Local markets are held every morning in the centre of Cannes approximately 3kms away and here you can buy fresh produce and fish.
Sporting activities in the area are abundant– there is golf, tennis, fishing, water sports, the beach, equitation, swimming and bowling. You are also in very close proximity to the mountains and hills of the Alpes Maritimes region here, which makes walking and cycling very popular.

Getting around is easy from here; you are on the bus network, also to Cannes and its train station. A car is not essential here.
Sightseeing is endless; the nearest places of interest are the town of Cannes and its festivals (the Film Festival being the most famous), the promenade “Croisette”, The Old Town of Cannes and its Port, the towns of Antibes and Juan-les-Pins and the city of Nice.

Beautiful house, and comfortable for our family. Well equipped kitchen. However house had not been checked to ensure everything was in place. Painting had been done prior to us coming & as a result satellite TV was not working and DVD player had disappeared..................we did have a lovely week, they were only little things really - we only missed the TV and DVD player really on Christmas day when it was pouring with rain and we were full of food! It is a very beautiful house though, and the area is great for access to shops, restaurants, and other parts of the region. Will let you know when we need another place! .(JDV say: things have been addressed with the local representative) - Mrs A. from Qatar, Dec 13.
We stayed in this lovely, old villa last week and it was perfect for us. The description and photos are entirely accurate but cannot convey the delightful feeling of seclusion and peace the villa offers. The large dining table was great for big family meals and the garden, sitting under the olive tree, was ideal for warm summer evenings. The property was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The manager was a delight, making us feel very welcome and offering help, if needed, through the week (the wi-fi was down and he spent a whole morning trying to get it mended by the supplier). The newly unshuted Bonnard Museum, less than 5 mins walk away, is highly recommended. Five floors of fully air-conditioned, well presented material with an interesting local history. A car is really not necessary to stay in this house. Parking can be a problem and the nearby bus service into Cannes is excellent. So long as they could negotiate the lovely spiral staircase, I would unreservedly recommend this house to friends, it is a beautiful place to stay - Mrs O. from Staffordshire, June 11.
A beautiful house, well equipped, with a lovely courtyard garden (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Ms G. from Brussels, July 10.
Maison Oranger was a wonderful place to stay. It was exactly what we were looking for lots of character and charm. We would love to stay there again! - Mrs T from Valencia, Aug 07.
The week in your villa at Le Cannet was absolutely charming, the place is so quiet, peaceful and safe, but at the same time so near to Cannes, Nice, Monte Carlo and many other exciting places and beaches worth to see and enjoy. The house and its location is very interesting for its antiquity, but at the same time you did a real good job furnishing it with all necessary modern equipment to make life easier and comfortable We loved Le Cannet as a town, we spent wonderful moments in the little terrace, as well as in the restaurants above, and I can assure you that if we come back to France, we will surely contact you to be able to enjoy that cozy home again - Mrs F. from Chile, June 07.
