Rustic charm meets beachside glamour

This lesser-known jewel on the Côte d'Azur has a sparkle and charm much like its glamorous neighbours, Nice and Cannes. Enclosed by 16th Century ramparts, the cobbled streets and wooden-shuttered buildings of the Old Town contrast with the glittering marina – also known as Billionaires’ Quay. The old working Port Vauban was transformed into a harbour for the superyachts of the rich and famous in the late 1980s, and is the place for fantasy yacht shopping today. 

The beaches of Antibes are well-sheltered coves, ideal for swimming and sunbathing. And if you fancy living it up at a luxury beach club, you’re in the right spot. Cocktails served to your sunbed overlooking the Mediterranean Sea? Yes please.

Art lovers are well served here, too. Tick off must-sees like the Musée Picasso – set in Grimaldi Castle, where Picasso lived and worked in 1946, the giant sculpture Nomade, and the Musée Peynet, which is dedicated to the local cartoonist.

Your Antibes questions, answered

Generally speaking, Antibes isn’t up there price-wise with Saint Tropez, Monaco and Cannes – especially if you stick to cheaper set menus or mix eating out with self-catering.
Absolutely. Get a taste of the millionaire lifestyle and charter a yacht for the day. Or join a more cost-effective boat tour along the French Riviera.
The Art Deco resort of Juan-les-Pins is just a walk over the headland and well worth a visit for boutiques, cocktail bars, and nightclubs.
