Best for pieds-dans-l’eau: Juan les Pins

Country Life Every Week - - Property Comment -

The area around the ma­rina and port of Old An­tibes has some spec­tac­u­lar beaches, from La Garoupe in Cap d’an­tibes to the long peb­ble beach be­tween An­tibes and Vil­leneuve-lou­bet, and many smaller ones in be­tween.

One of the best for sandy toes and glam­our gaz­ing is at Juan-les-pins. Once known as a slightly seedy sec­ond cousin to Cap d’an­tibes, the town is now up and com­ing, ac­cord­ing to lo­cal agents, and boasts an an­nual in­ter­na­tional jazz fes­ti­val. It’s per­fectly placed for ac­cess to Cannes, which is five miles away and it’s 16 miles from Nice and its in­ter­na­tional air­port.

Parc du Cap is per­fect for those look­ing for a fully equipped home within stum­bling dis­tance of the beach. Just 650ft from the Pinède and Juan-les-pins, this new-build de­vel­op­ment has a spa, concierge and park­ing—a rare beast on this stretch of coast­line. €599,950. Sav­ills (020–7016 3811)
