Antibes - Boules and Babes

Antibes - Boules and Babes

The mix of posing beach babes, young families and old French men playing boules is one of the delights of this famous French town.

It is a favourite location for ex-pats - so expect to hear plenty of English on the streets, there is even an English bookshop called Heidi’s (actually it is a really good bookshop so do pay it a visit).

We have stayed in the center of Antibes and spent a week exploring the town, the exclusive Cap d’Antibes and the Thuret Gardens. Antibes is a lovely place to spend a week - great play-parks for the children and two lovely sandy public beaches.

With fantastic train and bus links to the rest of the Riviera Antibes is certainly worth putting on your holiday plans.

•Second largest town in the Alpes-Maritimes area

•The Jardin Thuret on Cap d’Antibes is one of the birth places for the idea of growing sub tropical plants in Europe.

•Antibes has a Musée Picasso
