"It’s no surprise that both Picasso and Monet used Juan-les-Pins as a subject for their paintings. With its prized sandy beaches and warm Mediterranean waters, this Riviera resort is a picture-perfect place to soak up the sun. There are also plenty of gardens, historic sites and museums to explore in the area, with the popular sights of Cannes and Nice just a short drive away."

Juan-les-Pins at a glance

Located on the Cap d’Antibes just 13 miles from Nice Airport, Juan-les-Pins is a popular and elegant seaside resort with sandy beaches, bars, cafés, restaurants and trendy boutiques. It became popular in the 1920s and 30s when F Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway stayed here and has maintained its status as a popular short break destination.

The whole area has a vibrant, buzzing atmosphere, especially in the summer months during the peak July period when its shores give shelter to the World Jazz Festival, ‘Jazz à Juan’.
