Antibes Old Town

The traditional cobbled streets and individual shops ensure that Antibes maintains its quaint and authentic feel. The ramparts along the coastal road and the Fort Carré are symbols of Antibes’ past and also add to the beauty of its coastline. Previously under both Greek and Roman rule, both nations have left their mark on the town they helped become what it is today.

Walking along the unspoiled roads of the Old Antibes, with their shuttered windows and rustic exteriors, it is clear that these roads have not changed in centuries. New tourists uncover this not so hidden gem year after year. Every corner you turn opens on to another postcard worthy setting. The Old Antibes is full of old world French charm. There’s something for everyone and it’s especially great for families. Antibes has three sandy beaches, one of which is conveniently situated by the Port and the ramparts in the very heart of the Old Town.

Just inside the ramparts is the Picasso museum, a beautiful castle in which Picasso once stayed, creating many masterpieces that he has left in the town. Visitors can now enjoy Picasso paintings at various points in the town, or visit the Picasso museum to see the art Antibes itself inspired.

The daily market is situated on the Cours Massena and is held every day except for Monday. Produce includes fruit, vegetables, meat and herbs sourced mainly from surrounding villages.

The Old Antibes is full of small and original shops. You won’t find many chain stores or high street brands here; it’s the place to discover an individual piece of clothing, artwork or jewellery all with the kind of personal service of yesteryear.

The Old town of Antibes has a much quieter nightlife scene than its larger neighbour the Old Nice. However, there are many good restaurants on your door step if you are renting a holiday apartment in the Old Antibes. There are also several bars along the ramparts and by the port where you can enjoy a quiet drink. If you’re looking for more lively nightlife you may want to venture further afield to Juan-les-Pins or one of the coastal nightclubs.

Old Antibes really is a perfect spot for a family holiday; sandy beaches, quaint streets, and every corner you turn there’s something new to discover!
