Antibes-Juan les Pins, a maritime city with Greek and Roman origins, is characterised by its ramparts built by Vauban, its ports, including Port Vauban; the first marina in the Mediterranean, the chic and majestic Cap d'Antibes, sandy beaches and the excitement of Juan-les-Pins. The incomparable charm of the Antibes has conquered many hearts, from Nicolas de Stael to Picasso, Sydney Bechet to Miles Davis. There are quarters with fishermen, boat docks and Provençal market squares from which rise the accents of Jazz. Around its environments, near the villages of Biot, Valbonne and Villeneuve-Loubet, nature reigns: large natural parks, beautiful golf courses, waterways... The surrounding villages are models of lifestyle with creative arts, and the architectural charms of Biot and Valbonne. Nearby is the "Silicon Valley" of the Riviera: Sophia-Antipolis.
