Antibes lies 10km west of Nice airport. Antibes is a small picturesque town that is bustling all year round. The main area and highlight is the Old Town with its charming cobbled streets and kaleidoscope of flowers hanging from every nook and cranny. Restaurants are aplenty and due to the large yachting community (Port Vauban is the largest yacht marina in Europe) and English presence there is a good variety and high standard of international cuisine as well as traditional. Book a relaxing getaway in one of our Luxury holiday apartments Antibes here.
The covered market place in the centre of the Old Town is open daily and is one of the best on the Riviera. The majestic ramparts surround the Old Town and are home to the Picasso Museum and some of the finest restaurants in Antibes. Walk along the ramparts for the most magnificent views of the Riviera and the Southern snow-capped Alps behind. There are two sandy beaches with shallow waters which, are ideal for those wanting a more beach type holiday in a smaller town.
Val Claret is a purpose built residential complex on the outskirts of Antibes. The area is relatively quiet and is not a tourist zone. Visitors come here to enjoy the complex of Val Claret and are happy to take a 30-minute walk or 5-minute drive/free bus ride into the bustling centre of Antibes. There is a quiet pebble beach in front of the complex, a 6-minute walk away. This is not the main beach in Antibes and does not have a promenade, but can still be popular in summer when other beaches can become busy.
