Cap d'Antibes is a small, residential penninsula community consisting mainly of high-end Villas. It is a favorite getaway for the Europeans, the French and Brits in particular during the months of July and August. It does, however, have two noteworthy commercial enterprises.
The first is the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc, a five-star hotel by any standard. It was here that Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton had what even the French described as a "torrid" affair which was so successful that they later returned here for their honeymoon. It is a must visit for afternoon tea or even something a bit stronger. It is a ten minute walk from our Villa.

The second is Garoupe Bay. It contains one of the nicest of the many beaches stretching along 25 kilometers of coastline in the Cap d'Antibes area. It is a five minute walk from our Villa.
Garoupe Bay is known for its outstanding people watching and a handful of casual but outstanding bistro restaurants. It, too, is a must visit for a looooong French dejeuner.
