Antibes, Cap d’Antibes

Picture perfect Antibes is situated approximately 20km along the coast to the West of Nice just East of Cannes.

Antibes’ picturesque Old Town is concentrated around its world-renowned port. It is a cosmopolitan town where one could be forgiven for thinking English was the local language. Popular with tourists and home to numerous expats and ‘yachties’, Antibes is one of the world’s major international yachting centres.

A stroll along the Port Vauban is a must to admire the extravagant yachts harboured in the port. The town is protected by its medieval stone ramparts and its majestic Fort Carré, both reminders of the town’s rich history.

The Old Town of Antibes is quaint and traditional. It is popular with local and foreign buyers alike. Property for sale in Antibes Old Town are mainly apartments in traditional French-style buildings. Slightly further afield, in the newer part of the town, around Place de Gaulle, buyers will find more modern apartments for sale in recently built buildings. These buildings often come complete with amenities such as elevators and underground parking. Cap d’Antibes is another stunning area which connects Antibes with its sister town of Juan-les-Pins. Property for sale on the Cap d’Antibes is in high demand and mainly consists of luxury residences with sea views and spacious high-end luxury villas. The tranquil Cap d’Antibes affords residents of luxury villas for sale due to its ultimate luxury and privacy. Much of the villas and apartments for sale in Cap d’Antibes are surrounded by trees, greenery or secure gated entrances.

Antibes is buzzing with activity throughout the summer months and much of the activity centres around its fresh produce market, which takes place on the Cours Masséna, every morning except Mondays.

Antibes is blessed with several small sandy beaches, right in the heart of the city which are perfect for families. Plage de la Gravette is nestled cosily between the Old Town and the Port, protected from the wind and with gentle waves, this sandy cove gets very busy in the summer months.

Stroll just a little further along the city’s medieval ramparts to reach the larger Plage de la Salis. On the Cap d’Antibes is the exclusive private beach La Garoupe and favourite haunt of the rich and famous the Hotel Eden Roc.

Another attraction of Antibes property is the nearby business and technopole Sophia Antipolis. Since its creation in 1969 it has brought, and continues to bring, a large number of jobs to the area. Many of the employees of Sophia-Antipolis choose Antibes as their base, meaning there is a constant interest in both property to buy and property to rent in the area.
