Sandwiched between Cannes and Nice on the glittering Côte d’Azur in France, Antibes has long been known as a billionaire’s playground, with its
megayacht-filled harbour. Yet it’s a town of both modern luxury and storied history, where Michelin-starred restaurants sit alongside a traditional Provençal market. Sunbathe on the sandy beach or escape the heat in the Musée Picasso. Book one of these top hotels in Antibes for your next French Riviera break.

Located at the entrance of the old town, La Place Hotel Antibes is within an easy stroll of nearby shops and restaurants. It has 14 charming rooms, each offering memory-foam pillows and feather duvets for a comfortable night’s sleep. The breakfast buffet is served on La Terrasse, which, come evening, is transformed into a jazz bar with cocktails and plates of foie gras, smoked salmon and cheese to nibble on. There is no elevator, so you will certainly get fit walking up and down the stairs.

Relaxed, tranquil and luxurious are the words that best describe the experience of the Hotel La Jabotte. Enjoy the fresh sea air, the fragrance of the jasmine and the orange tree, and listen to the birds while sunbathing at this boutique hotel. Each of the nine rooms is individually decorated, and some have private terraces where you can enjoy your morning coffee or sip a sundowner. It’s a 15-minute stroll along the seafront to the old town – or make use of the onsite kayak. Most intriguingly, the owners offer incentives to guests to switch off their phones and tablets – one day gadget-free and you’ll be rewarded with a free breakfast.
