The 2011 Cannes Film Festival is from May 11-22 this year, and the normally sleepy beach town turns into a three-ring circus. All the best hotels and villas in the area are booked solid. But the cheaper hotels and hostels in Cannes still have some “cheap seat” rooms available. Search the map below to find cheap hotels in Cannes!
Of course, Cannes is awesome, and frankly much more enjoyable, the rest of the year as well. It’s fun (and warm) to visit in the weeks leading up to the festival, when you can watch the town sprucing itself up for the biggest names in the entertainment industry. And from just after the festival until mid-July is still considered somewhat less than the French Riviera high season, so there are great deals to be had in a gorgeous setting with stunning beaches – and cheap prices all around.
Go for it!
