Often, when planning a trip…
Millionaires and celebrities concur that Cannes is outrageously beautiful. Sitting on the French Riviera, the city has 12 hours of sunshine in the summer. However, the real magic lies in the affluent parties and festivals that are held here. The Cannes Film Festival, for instance, gets worldwide attention. Others include the Yachting Festival and the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, among others.
The Magical Coastline
Côte d’Azur is a prominent point of attraction. The blend of deep ocean blues, the pristine beaches and the luxurious villas behind is breathtaking. The Cannes coast is a sedative to the soul and a feast for the eyes. Vast yachts line up as far as the eye can see. There are many hotels and restaurants along the coastline for seafood lovers. The beachfront restaurants are famous for dessert and chocolate. On top of that, cake shops sell a variety of handcrafted gourmet chocolates and macarons.
Every year since 1946, prominent celebrities in the entertainment industry gather in Cannes for the Film Festival. The budget for Festival de Cannes grosses to about €20 million. The region benefits a great deal from the tourism with income of approximately €80 million from a single event.
Beyond hanging out in the haunts of the rich and driving posh cars in the Cannes streets, there are plenty of meaningful things to do. Some of the endless parties and wealthy show-offs are actually for charity. One example is the amfAR Cinema against Aids gala that was held during the Cannes Film Festival in 2017.
The event graced by Hollywood stars managed to raise close to $20 million for AIDS research. Notable guests included Madonna (she auctioned her kiss for more than $ 1million for the cause), Robert Patterson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Naomi Campbell among others.
If glamour for charity is what makes your blood rush, make a date this year (from May 17th-28th) with Sienna Miller and Vanessa Redgra. The two will be the hosts of the annual amfAR’s Cinema against AIDS gala that coincides with the Cannes Film Festival. Pharrell Williams, Linda Evangelista and Katy Perry have confirmed attendance.
Apart from A-list celebrities, models adorned in high-end diamonds and couture usually flag the Cannes festivals. The young, beautiful and affluent find peace on the French Riviera. If you cannot make it to the Amfar gala guest list, try the L’Oréal Blue Obsession party. They are competing for the film industry’s bigwigs and hot models.
While the Amfar gala is for a worthy cause, L’Oréal Cannes party is a celebration of the film and glamour. Notable guests and hosts for L’Oréal Paris include Lewis Hamilton, Lucky Blue Smith, and Chris Brown.
The world’s boat show extravaganza also happens in Cannes. This festival – the Yachting Festival comes in September every year. Just like the film festival, the boat show is an affair for the blue-blooded. Vintage and latest yachts are let out for all to admire and take a joy ride while sipping champagne. The 2018 edition will be held at two ports- Port Pierre Canto and the Vieux Port.
Rue d’Antibes For Shoppers
Another unforgettable experience is Rue d’Antibes. This is an excellent shopping center in Côte d’Azur. This coastal town brings to the modern world charm of the middle ages thanks to its exquisitely ancient architecture. Just a walking distance downtown from Cannes, Rue d’Antibes is home to numerous shops including the Sneakarium, Satellite, and Paul &Shark among others.
The sneakarium on 61, Rue d’Antibes should be the first stop for sneaker lovers. There are also designers such as MaxMara, Missoni and Agnes B and household luxury jewelers and chocolatiers. Chances are you will max your credit card on the high-end goods, but without remorse.
