Legendary Homes and Hotels – The Carlton: An Icon Reborn

After seven years of refurbishment, including two and a half years of total closure, Cannes’ legendary luxury hotel is embarking on a new chapter. With just 10 days to go before the opening, we take an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the hotel’s final paint jobs and preparations.

This film also traces the 110-year history of this listed building. Closely linked to the International Film Festival since its inception in 1946, the Carlton has welcomed all the world’s ‘greats’ within its walls for over a century, hosting major diplomatic and cultural events.
