Teens in Cote d'azur

I am travelling in June with two girl, 17 and 22. What city would they most enjoy--not quiet but fun with younger people. Beach is a plus also.

Juan les Pins has tons of clubs & discos. It also happens to have one of the best beaches. Consequently it gets very busy, loud & hectic at night which you might not like. If you stay in Antibes, it's close by for them but saner for you The other option is St Tropez for all but a pain to get to from Nice airport. Post back if you want more info. You can look at provencebeyond.com for more info on the area.

I will second that. Juan les Pins is a lot of fun. You can also stay in Golfe Juan, nearby and a little less busy.

Tulips, isn't Golfe Juan all modern high rise condos? I've just passed through & thought it very Miami beach-like, no?

Well, some of it is like that, but I have often driven away from the sea, and both Juan les Pins and Golfe Juan have some lovely areas with villas there. Not sure about hotels in those neighbourhoods though. I recently drove from Juan les Pins les Pinedes area to Cap d'Antibes through some back roads, and thought it was a beautiful area, with lovely houses. And if you want to be in the middle of things, the Meridien in Juan les Pins is not a bad idea; all rooms have small balconies overlooking the sea, it has its own beach, and is right in the centre of town.

Thanks for the info Tulips. I should mention for kakiebell one of my favorite places is Belle Rive in Juan les Pins. Have not stayed there but have gone for drinks & dinner on their patio. It was where Zelda & Scott Fitzgerald stayed. Very lovely smallish hotel & in walking distance of all the action but Le Meridien may have more "action" for the girls.
