Destination guide

Set sail on your superyacht for chic Antibes

Breton tops, wraparound sunglasses, and boat shoes at the ready. An Antibes vacation rental puts you right at the glitzy heart of the French Riviera, where the people are almost as beautiful as the elegant sailboats and vast motor yachts moored up at the marina. More laid-back than Nice and Cannes, a vacation in Antibes is all about lazing on the beach, taking in the narrow streets and cultural attractions, and enjoying an early-evening glass of something cold as you gaze out over the Mediterranean Sea. It's a terribly hard life on the Cote D'Azur, but you'll cope.

Things to do

Perfect that pout and get your selfie stick at the ready

If you're looking for a killer backdrop for those quintessential holiday selfies, then the 16th-century Fort Carre is your best bet. It dominates the old town, with spectacular views over Port Vauban. To delve further back in history, the Archaeology Museum has a great collection of Ancient Greek artefacts. And if you opt for an Antibes vacation rental, you're following in the footsteps of some very distinguished characters. Picasso's links to the town are celebrated at the Picasso Museum, while F. Scott Fitzgerald rented a place over in Antibes's sister town, Juan-les-Pins, famous these days for its annual jazz festival.

Activities

When it comes to Antibes, we're gonna need a bigger boat

At the center of an Antibes vacation rental is the milk-warm water of the Mediterranean Sea. With more than 15 miles of beaches, there's more than enough space for everyone, whether you're swimming, sailing, or just working hard on your tan. Refuel with some delicacies from the famous food market, then complete your Antibes vacation checklist with a snoop round Port Vauban. Once an ancient port, it's set at the heart of Antibes, and these days it's legendary as one of the biggest leisure marinas in Europe, where the great and the good moor up in their floating apartment blocks.

Weather

Make no mistake, il fait beau round here (mostly)!

The French Riviera is famous for having some of the most glorious weather in Europe. Think long, hot summers on the beach, with a light breeze drifting in off the Mediterranean, just to complete the perfection. While summer evenings are still warm and mostly dry, the temperature can drop off just a touch, so bring a light sweater to drape round your shoulders for that authentic European look. Come winter, temperatures are mild, though still cool enough to keep you off the beach. Fall and early winter are when Antibes gets most of its rain, so grab a waterproof if you're turning up in October or November.

Natural features

If you haven't seen blue like this, you haven't lived

There's a reason they call it the Cote D'Azur. One look at the gleaming azure-blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea and you'll be well and truly hooked on Antibes. The Cap D'Antibes is a peninsula that sticks out into the Med, and is home to many of Antibes' beaches. Most of them are pebbly, so if you want a good spot on one of the sandy beaches, you'll need to be quick off the mark. If you're looking to delve deeper below the surface of the sea, then nearby Marineland is one of France's most popular marine parks, featuring killer whales, dolphins, and even polar bears.
