As you drive southward from Nice towards Cannes on the Côte d’Azur, or the French Riviera, you will experience one of the most scenic and desirable areas on the Mediterranean coast. Cliff promontories, ancient villages and the most spectacular blue waters will dazzle the senses as they inspired and enchanted the likes of Picasso, Monet and Renoir. Just half an hour from Nice Côte d’Azur Airport, the first view of Antibes will take your breath away. As you look down on this picturesque town its medieval fortress can’t be missed, jutting out into the deep blue waters of the harbour and set against a background of the snow-tipped Alps.
Packed with historical and modern treasures from Roman times to the present day, Antibes is made up of three distinct communes: the old town with its twisting streets and ancient ruins; the idyllic peninsula of Cap d’Antibes – home to many of its jet-set inhabitants; and the Art Deco glamour of Juan-les-Pins – a sanctuary of elegant and glamorous night spots on the beach off which super-yachts rock idly in the bay.
With its proximity to the luxury epicentre of Cannes a short 20-minute (9.5km) drive, investors have been flocking to Juan-les-Pins, Cap d’Antibes an enclave which offers a tranquil and private alternative to the frenetic activity and stratospheric prices of its high-profile neighbour.
Parc du Cap, a magnificent new development overlooking the Mediterranean and with stunning views of the mountains has been developed by the Caudwell Collection. Parc du Cap is a contemporary and luxurious series of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom residential apartments and 4-bedroom Penthouses with rooftop pools set within tastefully landscaped gardens.

When owners can prise themselves away from the exquisite environs of Parc du Cap, they can visit the bustling market in the town’s centre to stock up on provisions for a picnic on the beach or stroll down to Juan-les-Pins and enjoy a waterside aperitif on the terrace of the Art Deco Hotel Belles Rives, a former villa once the residence of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
