Discover the Charms of Antibes

Antibes: The Jewel of the French Riviera

Nestled between Cannes and Nice on the illustrious French Riviera (Côte d’Azur), Antibes blends historic charm and modern luxury. The old town, with its 16th-century ramparts and the iconic star-shaped Fort Carré, offers a picturesque backdrop to the luxury classic yachts moored at the Port Vauban Marina. This scenic marina hosts the prestigious Panerai Classic Yacht Challenge ‘Les Voiles D’Antibes’. The Cap d’Antibes peninsula, a lush haven with grand villas, separates Antibes from the chic resort of Juan-les-Pins, known for its buzzing nightlife and the renowned Jazz à Juan music festival.

Luxurious Retreats and Historic Elegance


Escape the hustle and bustle of Antibes by driving along the Boulevard J.F. Kennedy at sunset, arriving at the serene Cap d’Antibes. Here, the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc stands as a testament to timeless elegance. Overlooking a prestigious swimming pool, carved from the rock in 1914, this hotel offers a perfect blend of history and luxury. Originally built as ‘Villa Soleil’ by the founder of Le Figaro, it was transformed into the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc by Antoine Sella in 1889. This historic retreat has hosted luminaries like George Bernard Shaw and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. During WWII, it served as a military hospital. Today, it remains a haven of glamour and tranquility.
