Antibes and Juan Les Pins

Region: Cote dAzure
Monuments:

To the east of Cannes is Cap D’Antibes, a promontory of delightful pines, secluded coves and magnificent homes.

To the west of the peninsular is the resort town of Juan Les Pins and to the west Antibes, both delightful resort towns. Midway between the two, the Naval and Napoleonic Museum display a collection of pieces from the Napoleonic era - Napoleon came ashore here from Elba in 1815. There are numerous models of ships and small craft and personal mementoes of the Emperor and his family.

Juan les Pins became fashionable in the 20’s when favored by writers such Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. One of our favorite hotels in the area, the Belle Rives continues to embrace the atmosphere of that time.

At one time a Greek trading port, Antibes is now a popular yachting haven and home to the Musée Picasso at Chateau Grimaldi, where the artist worked in the autumn of 1946. When he left, after four months, he donated 181 drawings and paintings to the town of Antibes.
