Cannes is quite a small town, but it is a town of many faces. The city center is composed of three very different landscapes – the prestigious seaside promenade, La Croisette, the lively town center overflowing with boutiques, and the picturesque old port and Suquet hill which make up the old town. In the same style as Le Suquet, but 2 miles (4 kilometers) or so north of the town, Le Cannet is a delightful little village of narrow, winding streets and old houses belonging to the town's suburbs. Bordering the town to the east is La Californie-Super Cannes, a lush, green haven sheltering luxury villas. On the western side, the suburbs engulf Cannes La Bocca and heading south, you'll reach two green gems afloat in the sea – less than a mile from Cannes' shores, Iles Sainte-Marguerite and Saint-Honorat attract thousands of visitors every year.
