Neighbourhood

Antibes is a cosmopolitan largely pedestrian town inside the walls. The town welcomes tourists and sailors and yet is truly French in its feel. The Cap d'Antibes has some of the world's most beautiful coastline, positioned between Cannes and Nice. There are many wild beaches and charming bays for swimming in Summer. You can walk past mansions where F. Scott Fitzgerald, Guy de Maupassant, Pablo Picasso and other greats lived, choosing Antibes for its beauty and artistic lure. You can sip a cocktail at the Eden Roc hotel or rub shoulders with the famous at the Cannes festivals. Drive 20 minutes away and you are at St Paul de Vence, the town where so many artists and writers gathered. Another 20 minutes will take you to Grasse, the home of many famous perfumeries. This link will show you the activities year round. https://www.antibesjuanlespins.com/en. There are too many museums, galleries, hilltop towns and astounding drives to mountain tops and remote beaches to list here and you definitely will not run out of places to visit.

Getting around

The best way to discover Antibes is on foot or by bike. Or take the bus which stops all over town (10 € a week). In the evening there are plenty of taxis – and reduced fares for students. Distances : Antibes is at 9 km from Cannes, 14 km from Nice airport and one hour from Saint Tropez. It is quick to get to Paris: 80 minutes by plane and five and a half hours by high-speed train (TGV). Every half hour there are trains to Cannes, Nice and Monaco. The train to Italy is an hour and fifteen minutes. In Antibes you’re right on the French Riviera, in a human-sized town, just a few minutes’ walk from Juan les Pins. Nice, Cannes and the airport are nearby.

Member description
Hi, Rob and I and Australians who moved to the beautiful Côte d'Azur in 2018 and just love living here. Naturally we still like to see our Australian family so we are keen to do exchanges (simultaneous or non-simultaneous) with people in Sydney and Brisbane to let us visit our two daughters there. We are keen cyclists and love to explore the small towns of France to to discover the amazing layers of history here.
