Hôtel Le Cavendish

Cannes, Alpes-Maritimes

Climb the candle-dressed marble staircase to dream between lavender-scented sheets in splendid rooms, some with balcony or terrace


35 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Civilised and convivial, the Cavendish is a joy, offering a drink on arrival and a complimentary bar in the evening. Set back from the bustle of Cannes, this splendid rebirth of a Napoleon III mansion displays Madame Welter’s talents. Subtle modern comforts and splendid rooms, some with balcony or terrace, are the frame. Sensuous, exuberant, almost edible choices of fabric and colour that are never overdone – crunchy raspberry taffeta, tasselled pistachio green, twilight mauve – clothe the frame. Quirky old-fashioned charm enfolds it all. It’s like being a guest in the grand house of a grand homme, such as its namesake, Lord Cavendish. How attentive to offer leaf teas for breakfast, how attractive to dress the curvy Carrara marble staircase with candles at dusk, how delightful to slip between lavender-scented sheets at night. Freshly baked croissants, cakes and crumbles, homemade jams and cheerful staff make mornings easy, especially if you are attending one of the events at the Festival Hall, ten minutes away. Superb.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Christine & Guy Welter

  • Go for a walk on La Croisette, take a stroll under the palm trees and pretend to be a Star standing on the steps of the famous red carpet of the Palais des Festivals
  • Take a cruise to the Lerins Islands facing Cannes : Saint Honorat and Sainte Marguerite islands. Another way to discover the bay of Cannes, more true and authentic
  • Take a look at Le Suquet and the Old City : Forville food market, Saint Antoine street with famous terrases and restaurants, Place de La Castre with its amazing sight of Cannes, as far as the eyes can see !
  • Hop on the train ( station less than 5 minutes walk from the hotel) to Nice or Monaco. Why not visiting the markets in Vintimiglia or San Remo : Italy being only 1 hour away ...
  • Visit Grasse, Fragonard museum and realize that fragrances created by famous perfumers are still made with flowers harvested less than 20 minutes away from Cannes
