The southern craggy peninsula of Antibes, the Cap d’Antibes, on the French Riviera is an enchanting headland dotted with sumptuous villas. A bastion of wealth, this Cap houses royalty, Russian "oligarchs" and Hollywood stars. Hotel des Etrangers, one of the most exclusive hotels in the world, can be found on this Cap. Twenty-first century guests and film stars attending the nearby Cannes Film Festival continue to contribute to the almost mythical allure of the Hotel du Cap, which is lush even in comparison to the other high-end resorts and hotels for the rich and famous on the Cote d'Azur.
The historic chateau in Antibes, where Picasso painted some of his many famous works, and the allure of the film festival in Cannes, make residency in this area the envy of many.
The city of Antibes, built between the bays of La Salis and St-Roch, lies to the west of the Baie des Anges facing Nice. It offers many old winding streets and town squares, excellent museums, sandy beaches, a wide variety of restaurants - in short plenty to do for everyone.
Although the city is home to one of the largest yacht ports in the world, and the largest pleasure harbour in Europe, sometimes even billionaires struggle to find space to park their most luxurious yachts there, but more extra-large berths will be build in the harbour of Antibes Antibes in the near future. For now, however, the billionaire yacht owners of the world will have to fight for parking spaces for their up to 80 meter long luxury yachts with bullet-proof windows, their own missile defense system, and a mini submarine with internal boarding, on the glistening sea of the majestic old town of Antibes.
Who says the world economy is in trouble .......?
