About staying in Antibes
From luxury hotels and beachside villas to chateaux nestled in the hilltop villages, the town of Antibes and surrounding areas have a lot to offer. Whether you are craving a relaxing cocktail on the beach, looking to sample a delicate rosé in a private chateau or fancy popping the cork on a bottle of bubbly in a bar, there are towns, villages and accommodation to suit all of your holiday aspirations.
Cobbled streets and designer boutiques
The old town of Antibes has a great deal of charm, with its traditional markets and delightful winding lanes filled with boutiques and cafes. The accommodation on offer here tends to be on the more informal side, with a number of B&B's and a couple of small hotels. The pedestrianised roads can also make access a bit more tricky and you may need to walk the last bit to your residence. But for a holiday in an unspoilt Provencal seaside town, with history and art at its centre, you can't beat staying here. You also have a super choice of bars and restaurants, ranging from quiet sidewalk cafes ideal for people watching, to the more lively bar scene where the yacht crews hang out.
Cap d'Antibes accommodation
Living in the lap of luxury
As you come out of the old town to the south you will find some pretty beaches (Plage du Ponteil & Plage de la Salis) & and a marina which has a further selection of mid-range hotels and waterfront restaurants. Beyond Plage de la Salis is the headland known as Cap d'Antibes. This is where possibly the most famous Riviera hotel is situated - the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc. If your wallet won't stretch for this one, then there are other accommodation options, from B&B's to villa rentals.
Family accommodation on the water
On the other side of the headland from Antibes is the holiday resort of Juan les Pins. There is a greater choice of hotels here, from beach-front luxury to better budget options. Juan les Pins has a very different feel to Antibes. Whilst Antibes is dominated by its marina and yachting heritage, Juan les Pins is much more of a lively holiday resort. The narrow beaches stretch all the way along the bay to Vallauris Golfe-Juan, and you can enjoy beach clubs and water sports along the way. Bars and cafes stretch out along the promenade, and your designer wear won't look at all out of place. Every July there is Jazz festival, Jazz a Juan, and the streets are filled with music and the sound of parties. Accommodation options range from apartment rentals to B&B's and hotels, the more luxurious hotels tend to be towards the Cap d'Antibes side of the resort.
Further afield and less expensive
A short drive away from Antibes to the north is the beautiful town of Biot, famed for its glass-blowing industry. It is set up in the hills above the coast, and there are a couple of lovely hotels here, as well as a campsite. Further camping options are available by the coast north of Antibes close to the Parc de Vaugrenier and Antibes Land amusement park.
