I’ve stayed in Copenhagen, Malmo, Amsterdam, Paris, London, Brighton, Marbella, Malaga, Glasgow and other European cities known to be expensive—but it seems Cannes tops them all.

Probably, it is not always that expensive out here at Cannes but if you are visiting at a time when the Cannes Film Festival is on the run, you should expect sky rocking prices for hotels and apartments. The festival period is a booming season for these hotels and apartments owners, as demand shoots up greatly.

With people from all around world coming down to Cannes for the festival, everything get expensive here—not just the hotels or apartments. Taxis, Car rentals, food, drink and I hear the ‘call girls’ even double their prices for both long and short nights.

If you ever want to live in a beautiful hotel apartment very close to Cannes that is well within budget, then I think you should check out MMV Les Vacances Club at Theoule—which is just 7 miles from the Cannes Film Festival grounds.

The beautiful hotel apartments which have 3 swimming pools with 1 being a heated pool also have a Sauna and a Seaview. So if you decide to go for a Seaview apartment like we did, you will get to enjoy the beautiful blue Sea view from your balcony…

Apart from the fact that the apartments are on mountain top which makes commuting difficult (if you do not have a car), the prices are affordable…

For a one bedroom Seaview apartment which takes up to 4 adults just like the one we got, prices fall within 170 euros and 200 euros per night. They also have studio apartments which I hear are cheaper…

Even though our stay so far has been pleasant, the customer service has been really bad—and everyone we’ve met out here has complained about this.

Also, for someone like me who needs the internet to work, it is a hustle out here. The wifi only works when you are down at the reception—so there isn’t any internet access in the apartments. In today’s world where internet is everywhere in Europe for free including McDonalds, I am not sure why MMV has no internet access in their apartments.

The non-availability of wifi in the various apartments means that most of the residents come down to the lounge or reception area regularly—and this creates some sort of community. I’ve met several interesting people (film-makers, film students and movie enthusiasts) at the lounge—and we’ve decided to keep touch when we all finally leave to our various countries…We occasionally have mini parties at the lounge while working on our laptops.

I wouldn’t say MMV is great but it serves the purpose we needed it for—an affordable and a decent place to stay for the Cannes Film Festival.

Am I going to come over here again? No, because I love having internet access in my room—and I appreciate good customer service too…
