Antibes is nestled within the stunning French Riviera. It is the perfect destination for charter guests cruising along the blue waters of the Mediterranean. Before tasting the gastronomic wonders of this Provençal city, you can fully immerse yourself in Antibes’ historic culture. From the ramparts of the old town to twisting streets lined with boutiques and galleries, every corner of Antibes tells a story of its exciting past. Fort Carré, a 16th-century fort made up of four arrowheads, was built to defend the city. It was one of the first fortified strongholds built in the Renaissance and offers amazing views of the ocean and the nearby city of Nice. The fort also houses a protected garden filled with Mediterranean flora and fauna that make it well worth a visit.

Antibes attracts yachts from around the world who can dock in Port Vauban, proudly known as the largest marina in the Mediterranean. It is a sight to see particularly when filled with boats bobbing up and down on the water. Port Vauban also offers the newly developed IYCA (International Yacht Club d’Antibes), also known as Billionaire’s Quay, which gives an exclusive experience for those who live a more luxurious lifestyle. With state-of-the-art facilities and personalised services, the IYCA is the ideal location in the Cap d’Antibes for yacht owners.

With lavish mansions and villas, the Cap d’Antibes peninsula provides homes for the world’s elite. With stunning views of the Mediterranean, this coveted location offers natural beauty and a rich history. For those visiting, you can stay in the renowned Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, this 5-star resort is the peak of luxury providing guests with impeccable service and its bar provides an extensive selection of the finest cocktails, wines and champagne. The hotel’s restaurant, Louroc, has one Michelin-star and serves delicious Mediterranean cuisine, using locally sourced vegetables, fresh fish and meats. Chef Sébastien Broda’s finest dishes include stuffed baby squid, cod velouté and scorpion fish with courgette flowers, capturing the flavours of Provence in every morsel.

The Belle Rives Hotel is a 5-star Art-Deco-style hotel that was the former residence of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Overlooking the ocean, this hotel offers spectacular views and provides gourmet dining for its guests. If you are looking to stay in the old town, then the Royal Antibes Hotel is the best choice. With 4-stars, this hotel has a rooftop terrace, and a relaxing spa, and is located on the promenade offering easy access to Antibes’ sights.

As well as dining in Louroc, Antibes has multiple other fine dining restaurants for you to choose from. Les Pêcheurs’ chef Nicolas Rondelli serves delectable seafood dishes perfectly blending the flavours of the Mediterranean, well deserving of their one Michelin-star. Les Pêcheurs offers a luxury dining experience with both elegant indoor dining and outdoor ocean views on the terrace. Le Figuier de Saint-Esprit is another Michelin-star restaurant run by chef Christian Morisset. Nestled in the old town you can sample plates made from the finest ingredients of the region from seafood delicacies to mouth-watering meat dishes.

Antibes offers a vibrant nightlife for visitors offering different locations where you can enjoy a drink after a long day at sea. A favourite of many yacht owners, you can visit Le Blue Lady Pub, located in the heart of the old town. You can enjoy a pint whilst listening to live music or watch sports games on their large television screens. If you prefer a more lively atmosphere when you go out, visit Brazilian-themed Pam Pam Bar in the Juan les Pins beach area. You can enjoy cocktails, tapas, and sundaes whilst watching live music and dance shows with performers dressed in colourful and exciting Mardi Gras costumes. If you prefer stronger drinks, you can also visit Absinthe Bar, which serves its namesake in a traditional fashion, with a sugar cube.
