Extracts from our printed guide leaflet: There is a lot to do and see in Antibes for a short visit so that a hire car is not really necessary. The train also provides an easy way to explore other places along the coast. East to Biot, Cagnes, Nice, Villefranche, Beaulieu, Eze, Monaco, Menton and Ventimiglia. West to Juan Les Pins, Cannes and Grasse. A car is only required if you want to explore inland, especially the famous old “perched” villages. The Picasso museum in the sea facing Grimaldi Chateau is just the other side of the old town ramparts 50m from the apartment. Picasso lived and worked in the Chateau for a period when he was into Ceramics. The museum has an excellent terrace looking out to sea.
There are often spectacular views of the Maritime Alpes beyond Nice in the morning from the sea wall by the Cathedral and Museum.
There are many of the worlds largest motor yachts in the marina (the biggest pleasure marina in the Mediterranean). Golfers have a choice of more than 15 courses within a 20-km radius.
Other beaches and coastal walk: The other side of the Cap d'Antibes has some beaches too. If one side of the Cap is breezy and rough the other is usually calm and clear. Also, “Juan Les Pins” (where apparently Brigitte Bardot wore the first bikini in the 50s), which is effectively connected to Antibes but is on other side of the Cap has long sandy beaches.
There is a spectacular coastal walk around the end of the Cap that can be reached from the parking at Plages de la Garoupe. In season there is a bus service.
Restaurants: There are tens of excellent restaurants within a few minutes walk of the apartment, and several just seconds away. Just a few doors up the road from the apartment are excellent little restaurants, such as Le Comptoir and Le Tour Ancienne. The chefs are amazing and match many Michelin starred restaurants for quality and presentation at a fraction of the cost. 'La Taverne du Safranier' in the hidden away square in the Safranier quarter a few minutes walk down pretty little streets. 'Les Vieux Murs' by the sea wall 50m from the apartment for open air dining with a view. A bit pricey but a wonderful treat. Local favourite Brulot's is busy, great value and surprisingly good with some excellent Provence specialities on the menu as well as pasta and pizza. The restaurant stays open very late and will often be serving food well past 11pm. 'Vauban' in Rue Thuret offers superb quality food with amazingly good value fixed priced menus.
