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.
