Perched on a hilltop in the ever-popular South of France, is the picturesque medieval village of Biot. Strolling around the streets you’ll be enchanted by the cobblestones, ornate doors and stairways. Long been associated with pottery and ceramics, you can visit a delightful museum celebrating this, but more recently Biot has become known for its glassmaking. With several glassworks in the surrounding hills, you can go and watch the glass-blowing process in action. Take a leisurely walk along the Rue Saint Sebastien where you can enjoy a coffee in one of the colourful cafes, then make your to the Place des Arcades with its lovely 15th century church. There’s plenty to do in the surrounding areas – a wonderful trail to amble through between Biot and Valbonne, a volcano a couple of kilometres north of the village and of course the nearby beaches. For real sun-worshippers head to nearby Juan-les-Pins.
