A Word of Welcome

Barrière and Cannes share together a long-lasting story of love and complicity that began over a century ago. Two destinies irrevocably intertwined, which traveled through the generations, and remain a unique destination in our hearts in France and worldwide.

Cannes and Barrière embody a shared history of long-lasting relationships for about a century now. It is a story of two mythical destinies, inherently tied. On one side, the destiny of a Mediterranean city, open to the world and the world of arts, and on the other side the destiny of a century-old French family group, whose Société Fermière du Casino Municipal de Cannes (SFCMC), the Cannes branch of Barrière, welcomes the world to prestigious places symbolizing the quintessence of French art de vivre.


An open story to the world


Since the Belle Époque, Cannes never ceased to reinvent itself, just like Barrière, whose prestigious Majestic and Gray d'Albion addresses have undergone major upgrades to meet the new aspirations of a clientele coming from across the globe, with new strong environmental and social expectations. 


Cannes is hosting every year major international events, such as its famous Film Festival, gathering for 76 years now a growing audience and attracting the best talents in the cinema industry meeting at Barrière’s. The Majestic and the Gray d'Albion are the direct witnesses and actors of this international reputation built up over the years. Today, Cannes and Barrière represent a dazzling showcase for the French art of living, resolutely modern and open to the world.


It is this same spirit that has guided the development of SFCMC abroad, whose activities have made a stopover in Saint-Barth, to give a new start to the Carl Gustaf Hotel, a real gem on a Caribbean paradise island.


A reference for generations


Whatever the address, for over a century, the Barrière Spirit has been combining multi-faceted experience for the pleasure of our guests coming from all over the world.


Barriere shows timeless modernity across generations, true to its DNA inherited from La Belle Epoque. The modernization of Le Majestic was one of this great timeless modernity achievements, which inaugurated 10,000m² and two exceptional penthouses, jewels of the Croisette, in 2010.


Located a stone's throw from La Croisette and the Palais des Festivals, Le Gray d'Albion is a historic player in Cannes' tourist scene. Elegant and modern, this 4-star address has also undergone a complete refurbishment, and is preparing a host of surprises for the delight of our guests.


This open-to-the-world and unrivalled Cannes Spirit is our reference, for Alexandre and I, when developing the dynamism and vision for SFCMC to remain a true reference across generations in France and abroad. 


Our hotels offer a world of unique and unforgettable experiences. We invite you to discover them leaving you with the best memories. 


Feel welcome !
