Antibes, Antibes

France's insider take:

Antibes is an odd combination of cutesy medieval town and luxury yacht harbor, with one of the Côte d'Azur's longest stretches of beach at its western edge. The old walled city is almost intact and dominated by the Château Grimaldi, built in the 14th century and restored in the 16th and 19th centuries. It's now home to the Musée Picasso, in recognition of the man who seems to have left his mark on every village worth its salt in the region. Antibes's streets are crowded with tourists, at least just inside the gates; climb the Rue d'Auberon to escape the hordes and come to the town's covered market, where easygoing cafés and gourmet shops line the arcadelike square (including the funky Balade en Provence and its Absinthe Bar, downstairs). Outside the gates are a few postage stamp–size beaches crowded with locals and tourists. But the real draw for the moneyed set is the port, full to bursting with yachts, many of which are for hire at the agencies lining the quais.
