What’s so spe­cial about An­tibes?

French Property News - - Real Life -

Cul­tural his­tory: Pi­casso lived here (hence the im­pres­sive Musée Pi­casso), Monet painted here, and many other painters and writ­ers made homes here, in­clud­ing Gra­ham Greene and Scott Fitzger­ald.

The old town: An­tibes still has its old town walls ris­ing out of the sea, so it of­fers all the de­lights of a tra­di­tional French town but with the ben­e­fit of three sandy beaches, the largest ma­rina in the Med, and world­class gal­leries, shops and restau­rants.

Marché Proven­cal: There’s an an­tiques mar­ket on Satur­day, a clothes mar­ket on Sun­day, a night craft mar­ket in sum­mer, and the famed daily Marché Provençal for fresh pro­duce and tasty lo­cal del­i­ca­cies such as Socca, a pep­pered chick­pea pan­cake.
