Less best kept secret and more Mediterranean favourite, nothing says French Riviera like the glistening waters of Antibes. Equally as elegant as its neighbouring hotspots of Monaco and Cannes, it has an allure of its own that gives your Mediterranean charter the final dust of gold it deserves...
Unbeatable nightlife, glamorous hotspots, luxury boutiques, Antibes ticks every box. While 'private' seems to be the buzz word for everything in Antibes, superyacht owners can relish in moments of privacy and seclusion as well as places to be seen, on and off your superyacht.
The area is a popular destination for superyacht travelers, who love strolling down the rustic cobblestone streets of Old Town and through bustling open-air markets filled with local food. Art lovers will want to see Picasso's paintings in a 12th-century chateau and check out the Antibes Art Fair. The town is also a great spot to enjoy a variety of beaches and a botanical garden, perfect at marveling at its manicured beauty, something known to the French Riviera Region.
Old Town Elegance
Take a walk through the narrow streets of vielle ville, the historic Old Town. Divided into the old port and the newer Port Vauban, superyachts genetly dot the horizon. Spot the historic site of The Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-la-Platea d'Antibes with its wooden sculptured front and well worth stepping inside for its crucifix of 1447 and a Virgin sculpted 1515.
Art Lovers Rejoice
The former Château Grimaldi at Antibes, with a rich heritage and colourful history stretching hundreds of years is a must see. In 1946, Spanish artist Pablo Picasso came to live in the Château Grimaldi and was so delighted with the place and the views out to sea that he later gave a large number of his works to the town. For art lovers this is an unmissable hotspot to be relished.
Each day in Cours Masséna in the heart of Old Town, the Provencal market 'Le Marche Provencal' takes place. This wonderful sight offers a vibrant escape into bustling locals who make their way through fresh local produce and unites international travellers for a taste of local life, just as the locals do.
