Cannes beach restaurants - important developments

29 Jan 2018

The French "loi littoral", which requires that 50% of the beach area must be available to the general public, has resulted in the number pf private beaches falling from 22 to 19 in Cannes.

Moreover, the 40 year leases applied in 1978 are coming to an end. Existing restaurants will be required to upgrade their facilities commencing September 2018, prior to applying for a new lease.

It is envisaged that the overall upgrading of the beaches (the sand level is being raised by 30cms) and la Croisette could last 3 years.

Meanwhile, Tetou in Golfe Juan (De Niro's favourite apparently) is no more, as you can see above.


Markets and Festivals

Film Festival dates have been changed to 09 to 19 May; that's a week earlier than usual.

Cannes Lions has dropped one day and now opens on Monday 18 June 2018.


Other Cannes news

Plage Royale

Mario has thrown in the towel (sorry for the pun) and the concession has now passed to the owners of La Mome restaurant.

For those not familiar with this restaurant, it is one of the newer fashionable venues in Cannes. Yes, we are working with them of course.

Baoli beach

Management of this beach has reverted to the JW Marriott hotel. Hopefully, they'll be less pretentious....
