Festivals of Follies, Plum Guide home in France

Click to book Festivals of Follies now: from £4890 per night Think of something that would elevate your holiday, and we assure you that Festivals of Follies has it. From a private pool, a hot tub, a games room with billiards, several living rooms, a large terrace, and a garden to beautiful bedrooms and views, this boldly beautiful home is a great backdrop for a large gathering. Cannes' central beach is less than a kilometre away, which means you'll also be staying close to the city's cultural wealth. Stroll down the cobbled streets of Le Suquet and find your new favourite restaurant or go grocery shopping at Marché Forville. Dip your toes into the sand at La Croisette and then slowly walk back to your not-so-humble abode. And as if this weren't enough, keen golfers can play a round at Royal Mougins on the villa's membership. The host team here is absolutely stellar and able to organise a variety of activities that will free up even more time to enjoy all Cannes has to offer — think babysitters, private chefs, and maid service.
