On our last morning in the South of France we stopped off in Cannes to make the most of the few hours before we had before we needed to head to the airport.
We were able to park easily at the train station (and tariffs weren’t extortionate!)
They’re currently setting up for the upcoming film festival, so they were literally rolling out the red carpet as we arrived. First stop was the Old Town, Le Suquet.
I bought this Gingham dress from Warehouse in the end of summer sales last year, but it seems the checked trend is here to stay. These are my current favourites.
Stunning little pastel streets peppered with hidden staircases and Vespas.
It’s easy to get distracted and keep wandering down every turn you find, but as long as you generally head in an upwards direction, you’ll find the top!
Where you’ll be rewarded with a spanning vista of Cannes, the harbour (with a superyacht or five) and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea.
After getting up early to pack before the drive to Cannes, we were starting to feel a little peckish.
So we wandered back down to the waterfront in search of croissants and strong coffee. Which we found at Belle Plage. A cafe and bar right on the beach.
We soaked up that last bit of French sunshine before jumping back in the car in the direction of the airport.
