You’re down a quiet lane in the ceramic and glass village of Biot. Inside is full of creative flair, outside is traditional with a sparkling pool. You can sit in one of three salons, cook in a smart oak kitchen or soak in an elegant marble tub.
Gather breakfast supplies from the market and graze on the terrace – glimpse Antibes and the sea, the red hat of the Garoupe lighthouse. Hidden between the citrus, oleander and roses are sculptures and art installations, the silence broken by birdsong and cicadas.
The beach is a short drive, the village closer. Stay in with a bottle from the owners’ cellar or head out for fine Provencal pistou and brandades at Les Arcades. Pack picnics for walks in the Brague Valley, swim, relax.
