When we mention the name of Cannes, we think immediately about its festival and its parade of stars. But Cannes, it is also a city steeped in history, as explains Le Cavendish, a 4 star hotel on the Cote d’Azur.
Founded in 997 at the foot of a hill that served as a lookout over the Seigniory of Rodoard, Cannes started out as a small fishing harbout overrun with reeds. It was called “Portu Canuae” and faced the Lérins Islands. In 999, the fort “Castrum Marcellus” was built. It’s theancestor of the current Suquet. Having experienced Spanish, English and Saracen invasions, the “royal” incarceration of the enigmatic Man in the Iron Mask, the spectacular breakout of Marshal Bazaine, the armies of Charles Quint warring against those of François I, not to mention the landing of Napoleon Bonaparte, Cannes was already prepared for its cosmopolitan destiny…
Nevertheless, it will be necessary to wait for 1834 and for Lord Brougham so that Cannes knows its development. From then on, the parade of crowned heads, artists and stars won’t stop … The XXth century transformed the city of the Princes in a pioneering town of tourism.
To discover Cannes off the beaten path, stay at Cavendish, a hotel located in the town centre of Cannes. The Cannes film festival hotel provides 34 sophisticated bedrooms and one of the best customer services. In the morning, a breakfast home-made is served in the sitting room and in the evening, the open bar is the best opportunity to exchange a few words with other guests and share a drink. To make a reservation at the hotel Cannes, please visit the Cavendish website and book your room!
