Cannes Real Estate: A Sound Investment Opportunity with Rising Prices and Rental Income Potential

With the 76th annual Cannes Film Festival 2023 starting today, 16th May, all eyes are on Cannes as the excitement builds. Leonardo DiCaprio, Natalie Portman and Harrison Ford are among the stars flying into this magical town, which is renowned for its soft sandy beaches, warm clear waters and jetset vibes.

While Cannes is often buzzing with glitz and celebrity check-ins, it is simultaneously inclusive. Everyone, from locals, to businesspeople, tourists and A-listers, walk the same streets and shop in the same stores, including designer brands along the Croisette and quaint boutiques up the cobblestoned Le Suquet.

Why you should invest in Cannes real estate

According to an article in The Times – which featured comment from Home Hunts – last year the Palais des Festivals hosted 140 events in 310 days, including 80 cultural performances and 60 business events. This means that investing in real estate in Cannes is unlike anywhere else. As house prices keep rising, it’s a place where you can rent a property out all year round for a short- to medium-term revenue stream, as well as securing a long-term investment.

As Cannes has this huge congress market, as well as millions of tourists each year, you can attain a very interesting rental return, particularly on central properties,” said Tim Swannie, Director of luxury buyer’s agents Home Hunts. “Property prices have increased around 5% each year for the past 3-4 years and even in difficult times such as back in 2008-2009, prices remained stable.”

Savvy investments aside, many clients buy property here purely for holiday pleasure as well, as Cannes is easy to access by car, train, plane, boat and even helicopter. “Cannes has its own private airport and is less than 30 minutes from Nice airport so it’s a very attractive destination for wealthy property buyers who usually like to live in the hills above the town,” said Tim. “In areas such as La Californie or Super Cannes, you can find some of the most spectacular properties on the whole Riviera.”
