LA CROISETTE: Who hasnât heard of La Croisette? This unique and world famous Boulevard follows the ancient seaside road known as the âchemin de la petite croixâ or the âroad of the little crossâ, from where it derives its name.
It is best known for the many congresses that take place at the Palais des Festivals and in particular the â Festival International du Filmâ, and the countless stars that crowd the stairs and the red carpets. The frenzied invasion of the Croisette each May at Film Festival time lends notoriety to the hot spots of Cannes and luxury is omnipresent through the high-end boutiques, the star chefs, the five star hotels, and the luxury apartments and residences so popular with the cognoscenti of Europe and the world.
However there is much more to it than that. The sandy beaches are meticulously cared for and cleaned both on-shore and off, and the beach bars and restaurants are of a quality and gastronomic appeal to rival any in the world, welcoming and elegant. The very extensive gardens and walks along its 3km length from the Old Port and the Palais des Festivals in the west, past some of the most impressive real estate in the world, to the Pointe Croisette at the farthest eastern end of Palm Beach are beautifully gardened. There is street art on display, there are sections given over to roller skaters, to pavement artists, to exceptional rose gardens and in winter fabulous displays of cyclamen; there are no less than three ports with yachts and boats of all sizes through which one is free to wander if one wishes, and there are fairs, country markets, and world beating fireworks displays set to music, enjoyed by thousands who turn out onto the Croisette, and many more watching from their apartment balconies and homes.
For the ordinary resident or holiday-maker there is little to beat a leisurely stroll along the Croisette in the warm evening sun in winter or summer, to watch the magnificent sunsets across the bay lighting up the bright red Esterel Hills in the west, and to stop for a glass of chilled rosé and a few olives while quietly observing the world go by. Hundreds turn out, children on their scooters and parents and pushchairs, and yes, the occasional face you may recognise from a magazine or a film.
Not quite as popular but every bit as enjoyable are the mornings when the Croisette wakes up to the beat of early joggers, and the footsteps of those who prefer a brisk walk to get the circulation going, and a stretch of their legs before a busy day.
The Croisette is for all people, for all occasions, and for all seasons.
