Nearby Attractions & Activities

Biot old town, epitomises the South France, it is full of pretty cobbled streets and attractive, colourfully painted houses with wrought-iron balconies decorated with geraniums, bougainvillea and roses.  Leading into the old town is a broad boulevard with plenty of cafes and greenery and the town is well known as an artistic centre.  Sculpture, ceramics, jewellery and painting are all practised with passion here, but it is probably as a centre of glass-blowing that Biot is most well known - and 'bubble glass' is it's speciality.  There are, of course, some superb restaurants in the town and one doubles as an art gallery.

Biot is also home to the world famous Musee Fernand Leger.  Leger (1881-1955) was a major figure in the development of Cubism and the Museum, which is easily recognisable as it is decorated with an enormous mural by the artist, is a treasure trove of his work and an interesting place to spend an afternoon.

Biot has a weekly street market on Tuesdays with food, drink and craft all for sale.

A good selection of beaches in and around Antibes apprx 6km including -  Vieil Antibes and Port Auban, - Plage de la Gravette, Plage du Ponteil,  Plage de La Salis, Juan les Pins and Plage de la Garoupe.

There are excellent hiking trails through the wooded hills and shaded river valleys surrounding Biot.
