Situated on the Côte d’Azur where the Alps dip their toes in the sea, Antibes is located between Nice and Cannes. The city includes the charming old town of Antibes with its Provencal Market and ancient maritime history, and the tourist favourite Juan les Pins, once a vacation spot of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemmingway.
Over the years the Côte d’Azur has welcomed artists including Monet, Picasso and Matisse. With around 300 days of sunshine a year and mild winters it’s not hard to see why people have been flocking to this region for years.
It is also an excellent base to explore nearby Provence, Italy and Corsica.
