Attracting the likes of Claude Monet, Ernest Hemingway, F Scott Fitzgerald and English royalty, the 4-mile long peninsula of Cap díAntibes, certainly, has a reputation. Between the Bay of Cannes and the Baie des Anges, this is one of the most picturesque bays in the Mediterranean. Luxurious estates are perched high above the sea, surrounded by tall pine streets and rugged rockery. Take a walk around the cape, the views out to sea are superb, and then cool off at one of the public beaches. Though they may be small, thereís a lovely atmosphere, and many people dine out on the beach in the balmy evenings. Donít be surprised to see the odd celebrity wandering around when the Cannes festival is on. A visit to the old town of Antibes and Juan Les Pins is a must, and if youíre in town for the Juan-Les-Pins Jazz festival, youíre in for a real treat.
