Cannes (06 Alpes-Maritime, Provence) is probably best known for the glitz and glamour of the annual Cannes Film Festival. But away from the hype you could indulge yourself with the Cannes Shopping Festival 14-17 April 2017

Hollywood and Paparazzi -invade the town, the already high prices rise even further – and you can get the chance to sample the hedonistic atmosphere against the stunning background of the Mediterranean and the Promendade des Anglais!

It is a bit like the Tour de France – love it or hate it, get there or avoid it – and very French!
