Juan-Les-Pins is certainly one of the jewels of the Cote d'Azur, in southeastern France, and with good reason. Home to many of the jet-set, glamorous casinos, an elegant nightlife and glamorous port, it is not without character and charm. In fact Graham Greene reportedly said it was the only town on the Cote d'Azur to have kept its identity and soul. Intrinsically linked with ancient Antibes, the two work well together - Antibes with its Greek origins and ramparts, and Juan-Les-Pins with its art deco elegance, long sandy beaches and decadent nightlife - a legacy of the 1920s. It is here the Americans swung into town with their jazz music, and every July you can experience what it must have been like with Europe's oldest jazz festival. Hand impressions can be found along the Boulevard Edouard Baoudin including that of Ray Charles. Sandy beaches run along pretty much the entire coast of Juan-Les-Pins, and here you can sunbathe, eat and party in style.
