The summer is well and truly over. The days are shorter and there is a nip in the air during the evening that means that those nights that we can enjoy dining outside are numbered.

However, for some, it is the most charming time of year and can certainly be in the running for the most beautiful season. With the red leaves on the trees, the golden glow of the brush and those sunsets that turn the world pink and purple, this might just be Antibes at its best.

There's still lots to do in the French Riviera in October. Here's just a list of some of the events taking place in Antibes this month.

Boeuf Theatre Festival

From early September to mid-November, the Theatre du Tribunal in Antibes hosts a comedy theatre festival, Boeuf Theatre. Created over 40 years ago, this event also brings shows and performances to the towns and villages in the region. Circus acts, theatre plays, live music, street performances, magicians, cabaret, shows for children and stand-up comedy will brighten up the Antibes' autumnal evenings.

Throughout the month, there are plenty of markets and second-hand 'brocantes' to be enjoyed.
