How do I find a place to live in Cannes?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Cannes is a popular destination for tourists and film industry professionals alike. As such, there are a variety of housing options available in the city. One way to find a place to live in Cannes is to search online classifieds, such as Airbnb and Airbnb Experiences, where locals, expats, and tourists are all advertising short-term and long-term rental options. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who specialize in Cannes who can help you find the best housing options in the city. Of course, you can always reach out to friends, family, and colleagues who may already have connections in the area and may be able to help you find the perfect place. With a little bit of research, you can find the perfect place to live in Cannes and make the most of your stay in the beautiful city," said one expat who made the move to Cannes, France.
