Cote d'Azur 4 - Antibes

Our home base for this part of our vacation was Antibes and it was a lovely for this purpose - the old town and harbour area would get crowded during the days but the evenings were quiet with most of the tourists gone back to the bigger centres so we had quiet streets and emptier restaurants - this suited us just fine!

Here is the beach

the daily food market (every morning) that became filled with local artists in the afternoons

the harbour, which is one of the largest on the coast so was filled with monster-size yachts (5 storeys with their own helicopter on top) by the stars attending the Cannes Film Festival

and designs, that I was collecting from everywhere we went. Some great iron railings on a church. This was actually right beside the PICASSO museum that was previously mentioned as closed for 2 years and opening the week after we left!!
