Top stars and supercars go together like champagne and caviar, and we're sure all of these things will be plentiful at the Cannes Film Festival 2017. Cannes is a glamorous destination year-round but for 10 days each May, Hollywood's elite flock to La Croisette along with an army of publicists, journalists and paparazzi. What better way to experience this prestigious event than with a luxury car rental in Cannes?
This year’s Cannes Film festival takes place from 17th - 28th May, and since it’s a milestone 70th event, you can expect an even more spectacular event this edition. In fact, the festival has already announced its lineup and it will break with tradition by presenting some TV episodes this year. The second season of Top of the Lake by Jane Campion, sole female recipient of the Palme d’Or prize to date and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks 25th anniversary revival will feature at the festival. New films by Sofia Coppola, Noah Baumbach, Todd Haynes, Michael Haneke and Michel Hazanavicius will be among the competitors for this year’s coveted Palme d’Or.
The Film Festival is renowned for its high fashions and lavish parties, many of which take place on the superyachts that line the harbour. It’s a beautiful sight to see the ultra-luxurious vessels moored along the Jettee Albert Edouard almost outshine the attendees in the historic Riviera town. Cannes buzzes with excitement as celebrities walk the red carpet to the Palais des Festivals, attend premieres and hold interviews and press conferences. The best way to be part of this is by renting a supercar and joining the others that throng the Croisette.
From the moment you roll into town with your luxury car rental, you’ll turn heads and gain admiring glances. As you roll into town in your Ferrari or Lamborghini, you’ll be able to glimpse the action at street level and check out the famous faces to see how many you recognise. Likewise, perhaps people will scrutinise your Aston Martin Vanquish Volante rental and wonder which intriguing celebrity is occupying the sumptuous leather seats.
There is no need to limit yourself to the Croisette when you can cruise around town from fashionable boutiques to Michelin restaurants and beyond. The surrounding region boasts a range of stunning countryside roads for anyone opting for car hire in the French Riviera. Experience the classic film era and drive along the coast in a convertible like the elegant Jaguar F-Type S V8 and discover other glamorous locales like Cap Ferrat and the iconic resort town of Saint-Tropez. Alternatively, head inland and explore the stunning countryside of Provence.
A Cannes Film Festival supercar hire is an essential part of the experience and it means you have the freedom to travel around the sun-soaked Riviera when the mood takes you. In fact, you can combine a Cannes supercar rental with a trip to Monaco for the Grand Prix that takes place towards the end of the Film Festival.
If you would prefer to completely relax during your time at the Festival and be chauffeur-driven, we also offer car hire with a driver. Cannes is 30 minutes from Nice’s Côte d’Azur International Aéroport and just 20 minutes drive from Cannes Mandelieu Airport, and we can have a car ready for you at either place.
