Le Cannet (French pronunciation: ​[lə kanɛ]; Occitan: Lo Canet; older Italian: Canneto) is a commune of the Alpes-Maritimes department in southeastern France.

Administration[edit]

Le Cannet was part of Cannes until 1778, when it was made a separate commune.

Location[edit]

Le Cannet is located in the north of Cannes, on the French Riviera, approximately 2 kilometers from the Mediterranean Sea. The two cities form a single urban area. It has a typical Mediterranean climate. Being well located, protected by numerous pine covered hills allows the city to benefit from a form of micro-climate, defined by its low level of humidity and ice, even during winter. These characteristics have made it a particularly appreciated part of the region
