Why buy property in Antibes or Juan-les-Pins?

French Riviera

Cap d'Antibes villas are amongst some of the most sought-after properties in the world.

A list of who owns property here reads like a who's who of the celebrity world.  The Cap d’Antibes is one of the most exclusive areas in the whole of the French Riviera. It is a beautiful peninsula nestled between Antibes and Juan Les Pins and is justa 15 minute drive away from Cannes.

The Cap d’Antibes hosts some of the world's most exclusive properties many of which date back to the early 19th Century -the gracious Belle Epoque period. It was during the 19th Century Belle Epoque that the Cap d’Antibes was first discovered by the English and Russian aristocracy, They built the most sumptuous & ornate villas that the Cap d'Antibes is now famous for, many of which still stand in all of their magnificent grounds today.

Many famous musicians and writers were drawn to the Cap d’Antibes because of the popularity of the neighbouring Juan Les Pins which became synonymous with Jazz music. It was a place for the young and famous to hang out and the Cap d’Antibes played host to celebrities such as Frank Jay Gould, F Scott Fitzgerald and Douglas Fairbanks. The writer Jules Verne also bought a property on the Cap d’Antibes wherehe wrote the famous book ‘ Around the world in 80 days’ , - his villa is still there today.

Most of these American movie stars stayed at the ‘Eden Roc’ hotel which was ‘THE’ place to stay, especially during the Cannes film festival. Today the hotel Eden Roc is still as famous as it was 100 years ago - throughout the summer months and the Cannes film festival it is host to many private parties qnd is the place to spot the stars.

A great many of these beautiful villas can not be seen as they are well shielded by trees and high gates - they remain privately owned and in the hands of some of the wealthiest people in the world. 

More affordable apartments and villas can be found in Antibes and old Antibes as well as in Juan les Pins which is a delightful neighouring holiday resort, well worth a visit for its lovely beaches!
