Make a villa in Biot your home away from home

Biot villas are set about a mile or so inland from the buzzing French Riviera coast, historically famed for the pottery and glasswork commonly crafted in this region. Characterised by quaint and narrow streets, rentals in Biot are the perfect summer alternative to the bustle of Antibes, Nice or Cannes, where HomeAway also offers a selection of holiday villas (for those looking to party and pose!). Quieter and more relaxed, the Alpes-Maritimes lie conveniently to the north of Biot accommodation, providing opportunities for lengthy mountain excursions to supplement the sand and surf.

Most villas in Biot come with a fully equipped kitchen so guests can exploit the amazing Provencal produce, as well as conveniences like washer/dryers, satellite TV and onsite parking. The vast majority of Biot holiday rentals also have access to a pool, if anyone in the travelling party can't stand the salt and sand of the shore. Tennis courts and gardens round off the luxury-end accommodation.

Things to do

Outdoor pursuits: With the beaches and marinas well within walking distance, there are a plethora of convenient watersports to enjoy from a Biot apartments, from scuba diving to jet skiing. Inland, the Alps rise majestically to provide less commercial and more rigorous pursuits, like hiking, mountain biking and climbing. Skiing is also widely available in the winter.

Beaches: The beaches of the Cote d'Azur are just over a mile away, so are easily accessible on foot, by car, or one of the regular buses. The particular beaches closest to Biot are often regarded as the finest on the French Riviera, owning to their natural fine sand, which contrasts to the shingle found elsewhere.

Nightlife: The nightlife of the Cote d'Azur is famed for its refined excess. Biot, however, is more quiet and assuming, though still quite commercial in parts; it even has a British-style pub (albeit with Riviera-style prices)! The best bet for an authentic Provence experience is to get way off the beaten path, and venture inland with a hire car.

Shopping: Like the nightlife, the shopping on the Cote d'Azur is similarly opulent, but visitors can still enjoy themselves window shopping and people watching without spending a dime. If souvenirs are desired, it's better to go inland and browse the village markets, cutting out the coastal markup.

Culture: Biot has its own museum of the history of ceramic production in the area, as well as a museum-cum-glass outlet that trades and displays the famous 'bubbled' glass produced in the area. However, a simple walk around the hilltop village soaking up the atmosphere is as culturally rewarding as any tourist trap.

Weather in Biot

The climate is Mediterranean, with long, hot summers and short, warm winters. Rain is sparse, but autumn sees a higher concentration of thunderstorms. High temperatures in the summer hover around 30°C, with nights comfortably in the mid-teens. Winters can see snow on the nearby Alps, but it never really freezes on the coast, with daytime highs in the low-teens. Perhaps once a decade sees frost.

Travel to Biot

The region is served by two major airports: Marseille and the more convenient Nice Cote d'Azur Airport, which is only eight miles away. The airport is well served by bus links, but if excursions to the Alps are desired (and they definitely should be) then a hire car is a worthy investment. Driving from the UK to the south of France isn't beyond the realm of possibility either, with a trip from London taking a comfortable two days to drive. It's also possible to get from London to Nice by train in not much more than nine hours.

Fond memories

Thank you so much for making our stay so special – we felt very welcome and knew where to turn for any advice required. This is the second time we stayed at your property and we would like to book it again for next year! We had an amazing time at your beautiful house and everything was there to make our stay memorable – the house, the location and the value. The sea view is unbelievable and we were spending a lot of time just enjoying the view. Looking forward to next year!

Lovely, Peacefull & Convenient

5 of 5
The hosts are a very nice couple and very helpful. The location is good if you have a car which we did. Good access to the highway so easy to get to Cannes, Grasse, MC, Antibes, even Menton is a nice drive. About 20 min drive from the Nice airport. There is a nice grocery store a short walk away (i think its a mini Carrefour) which has all you'll need. (Its closed on sundays). There is also a nice boulangerie across from the grocery if you want the really good stuff! The flat is well equipped, clean and spacious it has a washing machine and a proper shower despite what the ad says. There was three of us including our 9 yo son but the flat can easily accommodate two couples. No a/c though but a nice breeze most nights and a great fan!. Internet and TV worked good, I could even use my netflix account to watch movies. Really nice views from the bedroom, kitchen and balcony. What a pitty we couldnt have a BBQ their like the neighbors below did. Couldnt find a nice french-pub like 'Le Beaujolais' nearby but that's the compromise you make when you choose the hills vs a flat in the city. Would recommend it to small families who like the cool calm hillside flat or anyone going to the tennis academy near by. Thank you Valery! Look forward to our next visit.
