Fly to Cannes with NetJets

Cannes: glamour and extravagance on the French Riviera
In the south of France, on the French Riviera, there is a seaside city synonymous with old-school glamour and extravagant wealth. Cannes was once a simple, small fishing village rising up from the port on the hill of Suquet. Today, stepping into the city is like entering another world - designer bars and couture stores line the sinuous streets, while super-yachts crowd the port. Like bees to honey, the world’s most influential and wealthy individuals are drawn to the city’s glamour and decadence, as well as its iconic events and busy social calendar.

Whether it’s to attend the annual Cannes Film Festival or simply to escape for a summer of sun by the seaside, a visit to Cannes is always a good idea. Start your trip off in luxury and fly directly into Cannes Mandelieu Airport with NetJets. With access to our world class fleet, you’ll be able to fly privately to Cannes at the drop of a hat, as our dedicated team takes care of your needs and desires.

Why go to Cannes?

The Cannes Film Festival
The iconic Festival de Cannes began in 1939 and has since become the epitome of glamour and prestige in the film industry. Taking place annually in May, the city is flooded with the industry’s biggest and most talented stars. Hosting a number of high-class, luxurious events, this invitation-only festival is the crème-de-la-crème, showing Cannes at its very best.

The rest and relaxation
Without a huge number of historical sites or other ‘must-dos’ in Cannes, visitors are free to spend their time relaxing and exploring the city guilt-free. Wander along La Croisette seafront, admire the multitude of luxury hotels and boutiques on one side and private beaches on the other. Sample the local cuisine in one of the numerous, indulgent gourmet restaurants, shop in the city’s luxury gems, or simply relax on the beach.

The rich social calendar
Cannes plays host to a number of prestigious events throughout the year. Enjoy the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in June, the Cannes Yachting Festival in September,
the Longines Global Champions Tour in June, and many more.

Fascinating day trips
Cannes is a good base from which to explore the surrounding areas. For example, the lovely îles de Lérins, St-Honorat and Ste-Marguerite, two wooded islets just off the coast. Named after the two saints who founded religious houses on them, they have been inhabited by monks for centuries. Offering pretty beaches, medieval vestiges, fascinating historical ruins, and more. Take a yacht out for the day and explore all that these historic, wooded islands have to offer.

When to go to Cannes

Cannes has a typical Mediterranean climate with a hot summer and mild winter. Summer temperatures regularly get up to 30°C, remaining high from June to September. Temperatures tend to drop below 10°C from December to February.

The height of summer can get extremely busy in Cannes and tourists inundate the city. The best time to visit is spring or autumn, while the weather is still warm but not sweltering, and the crowds are smaller.
