Antibes Côte d’Azur

Antibes – a charming coastal town on the Côte d’Azur has become famous for its Picasso Museum and the harbor for the super yachts of the rich and famous in Port Vauban. The incredibly large yachts are equipped with swimming pools and helicopter decks. The Picasso Museum is located in the former Chateau Grimaldi in the old center of Antibes and has been renovated in recent years. Picasso and his beloved Françoise Gilot lived in Antibes for a year in 1946 and he uses the second floor of the castle as his workshop. As a thank you to the castle, he donated his work to the charming village to show the public. Antibes offers many cozy restaurants in the small streets and nice squares and a large covered market with delicious Provencal ingredients. Also visit the Peynet Museum and the cathedral. Outside the fortified old town you will find the Vauban harbor and the Fort Carré, built by Vauban in the 17th century.

Eden Roc Restaurant Antibes – Eden Roc Grill

The stylish Eden-Roc Grill restaurant, suspended above the pool and bay, bathes in the Riviera’s refreshing beauty. Chef Christophe Marc’s menu is gourmet simplicity inspired by Mediterranean land and sea: grills and salads have fascinating depths of flavour, crustaceans and “Sushi by Koori” are naturally delicious.

The other Antibes

Take a walk through the charming little streets of Antibes. Away from mass tourism and so beautiful. You will find the nicest little restaurants, boutiques and art galleries here.

Restaurant Le Square Sud Antibes

This restaurant is not located directly in the busy tourist center of Antibes but just outside it. You imagine yourself in a Parisian brasserie, overlooking a nice square where there is a regular market. Price – quality fine, food excellent and attentive, knowledgeable friendly service. For lunch we took the mussels “Moules a la creme” and goat cheese salad. Both delicious dishes. A glass of limoncello from the house with the bill is always very good (with us). In short, a must if you do not want to eat in the tourist restaurants of Antibes. Toilets also very neat, which is not always the case in France.
