La Jabotte

Antibes and the Côte d’Azur

La Jabotte

The beaches

  • La Salis, 60 metres from the hotel, is a free sandy beach with views of the mountains and ramparts. A family beach, that of our own childhood. We provide convenience items (see our services) and crockery if you plan to have a picnic. Handi-Plage disability assistance is available at La Salis if needed.
  • Le Ponteil, a sandy beach 100m away, is the neighbour of La Salis
  • The Gravette, hidden under the ramparts, lies between the Nomad and the Picasso Museum
  • La Garoupe is a site renowned since the 1900s for its beach and its palace, the Hôtel du Cap. In summer, a champagne bar is open in the evening – why not go for a drink at sunset and visit the gardens?

Accessible by foot (30 mins), by bike, by car, and the state-of-the-art… the tuk-tuk! A magnificent walk “on the edge of the world” along the Littoral path will inspire your dreams. A word of advice: treat yourself to a sunrise, when the magic will be at its height.

  • Les Ondes is cosy and looks out over Cannes, at the foot of the villa, today in the shape of a grand piano, watching over the fishing boats of the charming Port de l’Olivette.
  • Fort Carré: If you’re not keen on sand, this pebble-covered beach is 20 minutes away by foot.

Antibes

You don’t visit Antibes: Antibes visits you, permeating your being. Many writers and artists have felt it. You fall in love with Antibes, its climate, its alleys, its atmosphere. Victor Hugo once said, “Everything here shines, blossoms and sings”.

Antibes will awaken your five senses: sight, captured by the blue of the sea, hearing, soothed by cicadas, smell, attracted by jasmine and orange trees, taste, thrilled by olive oil and aniseed, and touch, as you delight in caressing stones rich with more than 3000 years of history…

  • The painters’ route: just one of the excursions offered by the Antibes Juan-les-Pins tourist office.
  • The Provencal market: With Jacques the cheesemaker, Dominique the florist, Denis the fisherman and the market gardeners Michel, Marina and Marielle, local products are in the spotlight. In summer, artists display their works until nightfall.
  • The marina: the largest marina in Europe.
  • The old town and its ramparts: despite the weather, the old town remains a village overlooking the sea, with its eyes on the Alps. Lose yourself in its alleys, and let your senses run wild.
