Cannes is renowned worldwide for the beauty of its setting and the magnificence of its festivals.
With a population of 70,000 people, Cannes provides all of the conveniences of cosmopolitan living. Situated on the shores of the Bay of La Napoule, it is well located for travel on the French Riviera.
The mild climate of the Côte d’Azur is also ideal for those who enjoy outdoor life.
Bonjour! I am a native of Cannes and became the AIFS Resident Director here in 1999. I studied abroad for a year in England, a year in Spain and a third year in Scotland, encountering new adventures and challenges every day. It really changed me as a person and altered my perception of the world.
Along with traveling I enjoy discovering new cultures. I speak French, English, Spanish and conversational Italian. I have a Masters degree in Tourism Management and have worked in the tourism industry in Greece, Norway, Tunisia and Ireland. Whether it’s your first time abroad or your tenth time, every minute is sure to be a great experience. I look forward to helping you adjust to the new environment and sharing my culture with you.
