6.) This chateau home in the heart of the French Riviera
This charming historical villa is set in an oasis of calm and yet only a short stroll to the centre of Juan les Pins and the beach. About midway along the French Riviera, between the glitz of Cannes and grandeur of Nice, you’ll find the historic port town of Antibes and the famous Cap d’Antibes.
Smaller but perhaps more authentic than its neighbours, Antibes is predominantly a port, with the entrance to the harbour guarded by ancient ramparts. Today Antibes supports a substantial yacht charter business which gives the old town a lively ‘lived-in’ atmosphere, buzzing with restaurants, bars and music venues which go on into the early hours.
