Now is the time when celebrities flock from all four corners of the world to the infamous film festival in Cannes.
Between 14th and 25th May this year, the red carpet has been rolled out in celebration of the 72nd year of this glamorous annual event.
This week, we read about Elle Fanning, an American actress and youngest-ever member of the event jury, fainting on the red carpet whilst rushing from one A list event to the next!
While this may sound exciting to some, we envisage taking things at our own pace on a more relaxed holiday in this stunning part of the world, and what better way to experience it than from the luxury of your own private villa?
Where to stay in Cannes:
On a private estate overlooking the stunning surrounding countryside, La Champenoise is a beautiful house formerly owned by the Dom Perignon family.
Perfect for a family get-together or just a week away from it all enjoying the sunshine in the south of France, the villa has a large heatable pool and shady surrounding terraces on which to completely relax and enjoy the view.
Enjoy a glass of rosé at the bar on the ground floor, or help yourselves to the well-stocked wine cellar, which operates on an honesty basis.
A range of A-list style indulgent extras can be arranged by the concierge from private yoga and massage, to a multi-cuisine chef.
