The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Sightseeing is endless; you are ideally placed between Nice and Cannes, and very close to the town of Antibes. Further inland the lovely old villages of Valbonne, St Paul-de-Vence and Mougins are close by. Other places of interest are The Port and Old Town of Antibes, Vallauris and its potteries, the glassmakers in Biot, the City of Nice and the hills and forests of the Alpes Maritimes region.
Other entertainment includes the casinos & nightlife of Cannes, boat trips, cinema, the perfumeries in Grasse or a day at the beach. Just 4 kilometres away you’ll also find the site of the water park ‘Aquasplash’, the sealife park ‘Marineland’ and a fairground.
Local shops, boulangeries & restaurants can be found just 5 minutes walk away in the village of Biot. This charming old hilltop village is very popular with tourists and has a busy main street with craft shops, a tourist office and cafes in the square. The village is most famous for its glassmakers and it is possible to visit the ‘verreries’ and their gift shops. The town of Antibes is also very close-by for a large supermarket and a greater selection of shopping.
Local markets are held on a Tuesday morning in the village of Biot and almost everyday in Antibes. Here you can choose from a selection of fresh fruit, vegetables, olives and cheese.
Sporting activities in the area are abundant – there is the golf course of Biot very nearby, tennis, boules, fishing, karting, water sports and the beach. You are also in very close proximity to the mountains and hills of the Alpes Maritimes region here, which makes walking and cycling very popular.
Beaches can be found just 3kms away at the Plage de la Siesta and Antibes.
The ski stations of Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron are approximately 1 hour’s drive away if you fancy a couple of days winter sports!
Getting around is easy from here; there is a regular bus service to Antibes and along the coast, with a bus stop approximately 100 metres from the villa. Trains also run along the coast and the nearest station is 3km away at Gare de Biot. A car would be useful here but not essential.
