The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The Cap d'Antibes the exclusive area located on the headland between Antibes and Juan les Pins. There is a bus service serving the Cap but it is also a very pleasant walk/cycle. The area is steeped in history from the artists like Monet and Picasso that based themselves here.. to the European royalty that built their holiday homes here in the 1800s. Today you can soak up the daily food markets in Antibes or the July jazz festival in Juan les Pins. Cap d'Antibes gets lively in May when the Cannes Film Festival means that the biggest stars and best parties are all at the famous Hotel du Cap... 5 minutes from the apartment.
Le Cap d'Antibes really started to develop by the middle of the nineteen century. At that time, wealthy people from all Europe, notably UK and Russia started to discover that place and built luxurious dwellings.
In 1880, the surrounding town Juan les Pins was discovered by the Duke of Albany, son of the Queen Victoria. At that time it was a forest of pines surrounded by sandy beaches.
In 1926, the castle of Antibes was bought by Antibes municipality to convert it into a Museum. Picasso stayed there 6 months. He left all his works and the castle of Antibes became the Picasso Museum.
Juan les Pins had its glorious days during the twenties when American people visited it became lively & fun, enjoying sandy beaches, and... Jazz. It was an immediate success. All of Europe's youth in search of fun and best know American stars such as Frank Jay Gould, Scott and Jelda Fitzgerald, or Douglas Fairbanks used to go to Juan. That was the beginning of les années folles (the crazy years). After world war II, the exuberance atmosphere of Juan started again, making it being the European New Orleans. Sidney Bechet was impressed by the beauty of the place and married there in 1951, during a crazy day, made of orchestras & dancers in the streets, famous stars and journalists from all over the world. Sidney Bechet played his greatest hits in the streets of Antibes. In 1960, the Jazz Festival of Juan les Pins was launched. All the big ones came: Armstrong, Count Basie, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, Ray Charles....Hancock, Georges Benson, Keith Jarrett, Al Jarreau. Nowdays, the Jazz festival is held every July.

"This was the ideal place for our holiday in the South of France"
My family (of four) spent a perfect week here in August. The property itself is clean and comfortable with excellent sitting room, two bedrooms, bathroom and second shower and WC. The kitchen and barbecue are ideal for self-catering. The large outside sitting, dining and sunbed area is on two levels offering a choice of sun or shade at all times of the day. The beaches, restaurants, hotels and watersports of Cap D'Antibes are literally across the road, and shops for essentials are a two-minute walk away. Antibes itself can be reached quickly by foot, bicyle or road, and Nice, Cannes and Monte Carlo are short drives away. Bicyles and satellite TV/bluray are available to help with going out or staying in. I must add that Stuart, the property's manager, smoothed our arrival and departure and enhanced our stay with helpful insider knowledge of the area. I can't fault this place and am very glad we chose it.
