What do I need to know about living in Cannes?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Cannes, they said:

"Cannes is a popular destination for expats who are looking to retire in the south of France. It is an expensive city and rents tend to be high, so ensuring you have a secure and well-funded retirement budget is essential. Knowing a little French will be helpful in day to day life as many locals do not speak English as their first language. Cannes has a subtropical Mediterranean climate with temperatures reaching up to 30-35°C in the summer months, so be prepared for hot and humid weather. There are plenty of cultural attractions to explore and enjoy, from the city’s beachfront to its various art galleries, architectural buildings and buzzing nightlife. Being mindful of France’s local customs and laws will help you integrate smoothly into the local community and make the most of your retirement in Cannes," wrote one member in Cannes, France.
