FRENCH in CANNES for teenagers aged 12 - 17
"FRENCH SUMMER IMMERSION VACATION"
Enjoy your summer French Teenager language vacation in one of the best-known cities of the French Riviera - CANNES.
Just 10 km from Antibes, this is a busy upscale tourist destination, host of the annual Cannes Film Festival and famous for its various luxury shops, restaurants and hotels.
La Croisette is the waterfront avenue with palm trees. La Croisette is known for picturesque beaches and for restaurants, cafés and boutiques. La Suquet, the old town, provides a good view of La Croisette. The fortified tower and Chapel of St Anne house the Musée de la Castre. The Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned on the Île Sainte-Marguerite.
The "Croisette" stands along private fine sandy beaches, but teenagers generally prefer the public beaches located east of Cannes where they can enjoy lots of cafés, snacks and reasonably priced restaurants, and meet up with other young people and holidaying families.
Cannes summers are long and warm, with summer daytime temperatures regularly hitting 30°C, while average temperatures are about 25°C. Temperatures remain high from June to September, the busiest time of the year. Despite the hot daytime temperatures, a Mediterranean breeze keeps summer evenings comfortably cool.
Distances: 45 minutes from St-Tropez, 40 minutes from Nice & 1 hour from Monaco.
