Cannes is a city which lies on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea in southern France (a region known as the French Riviera).[1] Beauxbatons Academy of Magic was located near Cannes.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • J. K. Rowling had previously stated that Beauxbatons was located near the city of Cannes. Pottermore, however, retcons this, instead placing its location in the Pyrenees. It is, of course, possible that Cannes is the departure point of some sort of French equivalent of the Hogwarts Express.
