Antibes and Cote D'Azur Advice

Jump to last reply

We're a late 20s couple looking to spend more than a week (think 7-9 days) in Cote D'Azur in late May. I've been scrolling throughout the forums, and I've found a few useful pieces of advice, however, I just want to keep our options open when it comes to what's available.

So, we're mostly going to rent (airbnb has some very chic and interesting properties, often half the price of a tiny tin-can of a hotel room). But we're unsure in terms of location - is Antibes better than Juan les Pins? We're not totally keen on Nice, since it's a fairly big city, and we want a bit more quiet. It's the same for St. Tropez - while it's flashy and everything, I'd like to avoid that for 7 days. Are there better alternatives to Antibes in the same area? (that also have a sea opening?)

A few other questions were:

- How likely are we to have a beach-like weather at the end of May? (Based on recent experience, since weather has changed quite a bit lately)
- Are there any specific no-miss activities in the surrounding areas? (for example, it's likely that we will cycle in Provence for a day or two, since it's so close-by)

Forgot to mention this one - we'll be going by car.

Thank you all in advance!
