Antibes, conveniently located between Nice and Cannes, remains a popular beach resort in the French Riviera. The famous Old Town of Antibes, with its lovely cobbled streets and alleyways, is home to restaurants with fantastic French and International cuisine, charming shops, and its Marché Provençale ; the covered market offering everything from charcuterie, to home-made tapenades, to wonderful flowers and much more local produce.
The Antibes Old Town is also home to the celebrated Picasso museum, the first museum ever to have dedicated itself to the world renowned artist. Located next to the Antibes beautiful church and Old Town ramparts, the Picasso museum is situated in the 16th century Chateau Grimaldi.
Popular thanks to its sandy beaches, lively atmosphere, and beautiful centre filled with history, Antibes is a truly special town to visit. Known as the “Anglo-hub”, a large Anglo-Saxon community lives in this beautiful town on the Cote d’Azur. Accordingly, English is widely spoken throughout the area and in the majority of its bars, restaurants, shops, and cafes.
Although served by its rail station, Antibes is more conveniently accessed by car, due to a lack of evening train services, and infrequent train stops on a Sunday. Easy Car Booking can offer you a car rental for the day, a monthly car hire, or a long-term car rental, depending on the length of your stay in Antibes. With its windy roads and smaller parking spaces, a smaller car or an electric car is more suitable for your stay. People carriers can also be hired for families holidaying in Antibes.
