antibes-juanlespins tourist office site
The Cote d'Azur has over 300 days of sunshine a year and has long been a favourite holiday destination for both the British and the French. Lovely sandy beaches, safe bathing in a beautiful blue sea, historic, medieval villages, mountains, museums, cafes, bars and restaurants are all on your doorstep. Apart from the obvious world famous destinations – Nice and Cannes (both just a bus ride away) – there are many less well known attractions equally worth seeing in the vicinity. Visit a pottery in Vallauris, a glass works in Biot or a perfumery in Grasse - all are very close and can be reached by public transport. No wonder Picasso loved this area and lived and worked here for several years. The French Alps are about 1.5 hours away; you can drive there or go by bus or train. This is a great area for skiing in the winter and hiking in spectacular scenery at other times of the year. The nearby hills are ideal walking country and you can visit lots of picturesque, historic villages such as Mougins, Valbonne, St Paul de Vence, Menton, Gourdon or Tourettes sur Loup. The bus service is very good and the fare is only 1 euro per person per journey. You can also get around by train which runs both along the coast and up into the mountains. You can therefore also go skiing in the winter. From Antibes it is easy to get to Cannes (10 minutes by train), where the world famous film festival is held; Nice (10 minutes), with its delightful pedestrianised old town and huge market; Monaco (45 minutes), where you can see how the other half live, visit the Monte Carlo casino and the Grand Prix; and even Italy is within easy reach. A detailed guide to Antibes and the local area is available from the antibes-juanlespins tourist office.
The Antibes / Antibes Centre Ville area
Antibes is ideally located between Nice and Cannes, with excellent bus and train services.
Antibes is a very ancient town with over 2,500 years of history. There is an old fort dating back to the 16th century, and you can still see sections of medieval walls and towers around the old town - which consists of a maze of streets and squares filled with restaurants, bars and shops. It is also home to several museums, most famous of which is the Picasso museum, and a provencal market which sells fresh fruit and vegetables as well as arts & crafts. There is also a roman cellar turned into a fascinating bar with over a dozen different varieties of absinthe! Antibes is attached to Juan les Pins, which is very popular for its beaches, its bars and the casino. Being on the coast there lots of watersports available including diving, sailing (both boat hire and lessons are available) and waterskiing, and there are several golf courses in the area. Boat trips can also be taken to the Lérins Islands which are rich in history and nature. On Sainte-Marguerite, visit Fort Royal where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned. You can also sail to Monaco and St Tropez. Firework festivals are held in Antibes, as well as other towns along the coast, and jazz festivals are held in Juan Les Pins and Nice. Christmas is well-celebrated with lots of decorations and events. Children are well catered for with the very popular Marineland and fun park. Here is a report from the The Daily Telegraph (phone number hidden)): “If there is an art gallery with a more beautiful location than the Picasso Museum in Antibes, I have yet to find it. From the terrace below the medieval stone tower of the former Grimaldi Palace, you look out over the glittering waters of the bay to the distant grey bulk of Cap Ferrat. The sun beats on the Mediterranean, yachts slide lazily past, around the corner children paddle from the beach, and inside the medieval château, the white-walled galleries are hung with some of the painter's most hedonistic and untroubled work. Picasso used the château as a studio in the autumn of 1946, a brief but apparently happy interlude in the itinerant life of the exiled Spaniard. His painting Joie de Vivre, which hangs in the museum, perhaps best captures the mood, with its summery palette of light blues and yellows. A naked model dances to pan pipes – played by a faun and a centaur – on the beach while a fishing boat bobs on the horizon. Some of Picasso's most hedonistic and spirited paintings and drawings are here”.

Awesomeness is all I can say Andrew is super friendly and very accommodating and the apartment is close to everything!!! What a charm
When i first arrived in Antibes Andrew met me at the station. Unfortunately some building activity had caused some issues at the apartment and there was an issue with the drainage. Andrew put me up in a hotel for the first night until this issue was fixed. (completely hassle free!!)
the apartment is self is ideally Located and extremely cosy. It had every thing i needed for the time i spent there. Andrew was a fantastic host and was very lenient to me leaving the apartment late on my last day.
I would definitely book this place again ad would recommend it to any one that is studying in antibes.
Andrew was a great host!! The studio was lovely and exactly what we were looking for. Situated in the heart of Antibes its was very easy to go for walk along the dockside or grab a bite around the corner. Thanks Andrew for the list of recomended restaurants it was a big help and that Choopy´s cupcake place was amazing. thanks for everything once again!!
Beautiful located cozy studio!
A Lovely, cosy, very clean studio apartment. I was attending a course in Antibes and the location for the two weeks was just perfect. Sophie was an excellent host, and had no trouble coming to help with a spare set of keys when I locked myself out the apartment! the cooking facilities were efficient enough for my needs, and having a washing machine was an added bonus.
I would definatly recommend this place ! Great value for money , and Andrew is really helpful . Nice and clean and has everything you need basically . i will be coming back !
Super Appart en plein coeur d'Antibes...à proximité des restaurants et bars... des boutiques...du marché provençal...et autres commerces ... Ce logement est une bonne alternative aux chambres d'hôtels économiques...tout en offrant l'avantage de cuisiner vous même vos repas...( il y a tout ce qui faut)...Veuillez noter que c'est en pleine ville... si vous recherchez le calme de la montagne ce logement n'est pas pour vous...pour ma part j'y retournerais demain matin! J'ai pu visiter Antibes à pied...tout en profitant de la côte-d'azur et des alpes maritimes à moto...
We have been for a week in a very nice, charming Place in the center of Antibes. The little studio is situated in an old House, very well renovated, with a lot of nice ideas. Andrew and Sophia were friendly and helpful from the first moment of our contact until the last moment, we left. we are looking forward to our next Hollydays in Antibes. Sure we will rent this nice little apartment a seceond time.

Very warm welcome, when I arrived late in the evening. Sophi actually picked med up at the trainstation in Antibes! - And was in general very helpfull. The apartment was my dear and safe home for nine days. In the old heart of Antibes, close to the sea, marked, and restaurants etc. It is very easy to go by bus and train along the Rivera. The apartment was so clean and sober, and nothing was missing. I hope to come back! The best place for a single female traveler. Thank you!
Très bon accueil de la part de Sophi. Le studio est conforme à la description, et très bien équipé compte tenu de sa (website hidden) situation est idéale, en plein cœur du vieil Antibes et proche de la plage. Le seul petit bémol de ce studio est son lit clic-clac, assez inconfortable (comme la plupart des canapés convertibles), mais largement suffisant pour quelques jours.
Nous serions ravis de revenir !
