Antibes Travel Guide

Antibes: Where Azure Waters and Timeless Beauty Unite

Antibes is an extraordinary part of the Cote d’Azur (Azure Coast). Writers, artists, and tourists have been seduced by the glistening seas, spectacular views, lush hills, and vibrant cultural life for centuries. Although a small destination compared to Nice and Toulon, Antibes is a concentration of local history. The town’s sea walls bear witness to its turbulent past, while Golfe Juan staged Napoleon Bonaparte’s surprise return from exile on Elba, Italy. To visit Antibes is to understand why writers such as F Scott Fitzgerald – author of Tender is the Night – could not help but propel the Cote d’Azur’s magical villages to international stardom.

  • Musee Picasso

    Art lovers always adore a visit to the 12th century Chateau Grimaldi, which Picasso used as a studio in the 1940s. The collection of sculptures, drawings, and other curiosities is unrivaled in Provence.

  • St Tropez

    Despite the undeniable bling, St Tropez is a must-visit icon of Cote d’Azur style. Avoid high summer – in the gorgeous autumn or spring light; it is hard to imagine that the pretty terracotta fishing village of St Tropez is one of the world’s most chic resorts. The crowds are thinner, the experience far superior.
