The South of France is better for those who want to get away from the concreat jungles of Paris ... we stayed at this cute B&B in Juan les Pins.
It all happened by a last minuet change of plans because of over booking from another B&B in Antibes...
None-the-less our hosts were very gracious lending us stuff like beach blankets and throwing in wine from there region even driving us to the airport in Nice. The property had its own pool which we indulged in. A simple breakfast of jams and croissants tea&coffee, etc. (ask might even make crepes?) might be a little old fashion for some ( there was a hint of moth balls and cat smell which my girlfriend was allergic) but besides that it was liveable when it comes to being in someone's home (built in 1997 same owners Rene and Rosemary great hosts). The taxis was a royal rip off (the place is a little hard to find) I recommend a car or the bus/rail) or call Rene they might just pick you up from Nice (only 20 min. sea-side drive) avoid highway. About a ten to fifteen minute walk to the long beach through a park (should have a good sense of direction) and you can get to Antibes, Cannes, Nice, etc. easily by bus or train. Great little shops and food is excellent and they cater to english and french. They also had great wifi (providing you bring your own computer.. mine Mac notebook 2007) and the rooms and bathroom was large (request the one beside the pool). All in all I give this place a 4 out of 5. Remember it a quiet place/neighborhood if thats what your looking for?
