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.

The photos on “HomeAway” certainly do justice to this apartment. The outstanding view from the French windows overlooking the little beach and port Vauban gave us many moments of pleasure watching the yachts and sunbathers, even though our stay was in November. The apartment was all as promised, fully equipped with many”extras” and certainly much better than other apartments we have rented and throughout our stay, Jonathan and Judy kept in touch to make sure we had all we needed. Making use of the bus pass, (only 10 euros for the week) we visited Biot, Valauris, Cannes and Juan les Pins and took the train to visit Monaco and Nice. We particularly enjoyed paddling in the sea, visiting the old town exploring the little back streets and the markets. However, we will never forget our last full day, (18th Nov.) at Juan les Pins, eating in a restaurant on the beach two metres from the sea with a clear blue sky and a temperature of 19 degrees C. Sadly our two weeks passed too quickly and we would certainly like to return to “the Place de Reves”. Sandra and Charlie

It was actually the house that made us choose Antibes, and both were perfect. The house is cosy, lovingly restored and decorated, well equipped, and in a great location. The old town is idyllic with plenty of restaurants, shops, markets, the beach, and I could spend everyday in the food market. We did a few day trips, and the train and bus stations are an easy walk from the house. Owner and manager were both wonderfully responsive.

Everything is new, great with child and the locations is fantastic! The infinity pool is clean and fun for children. There are noise from trafic, but that is expected when you choose to live in a city.
