Juan-les-Pins at Night

This small town, immediately adjacent to Cap d'Antibes, is for the younger, late night generation -- the after midnight crowd. Fortunately, it is close to the Villa and is an easy stumble home early in the morning.

Juan-les-Pins is best know for its world-class outdoor jazz concerts, including the annual summertime festival known as “Jazz à Juan.” 

When a jazz concert is not active, then the night clubs and casino will pick up the slack.

It was here that two of the Klotsche kids and their invited friends from the U.S. took liberal advantage of the slack drinking age restrictions and managed to act like "ugly Americans" -- unfortunately their audience included the local Gendarme. They landed in the local jail and stayed there for almost 24 hours. Even Christine Lagarde, current Chief of the International Monetary Fund and then a Senior Partner in the Baker & McKenzie Paris office, was unable to spring them loose.
