A sparrow’s spit from the heart of Cannes, its railway station and myriad fleshpots, the elegant and evocatively re-named Villa Garbo brings you the luxury of a smart hotel and the practicality of a serviced apartment. Choose your breakfast from the buffet and have it on the terrace or in your room. Your suite or apartment, done in taupe and pink, has an immaculate stylish kitchen, good lighting, comfy beds and a contemporary marble bathroom with a striking black mirror. The whole place is carefully furnished and colour-coordinated in period and modern style – antique chandeliers and tonic lime green chairs, marble fireplaces and ethnic touches, 1890s candlesticks and leather sofas. The owners and staff are genuinely friendly, always ready to answer your questions round a (free) aperitif and expertly creating a convivial house-party atmosphere. The private beach is the height of indulgence in bustling, celeb-ridden Cannes. You will feel like a guest in a high-class mansion with impeccable servants at your beck and call. The Penthouse is a wow with its own roof terrace.
