'A Constant Carnival!' (Scott Fitzgerald)

Although often referred to as "Antibes Juan les Pins", Juan les Pins is in fact a separate entity, being the beach resort adjoining the historic town of Antibes. Juan les Pins may not be able to offer the history and culture of its illustrious neighbour, but it is justly famed for its superb beaches (among the best on the Côte d'Azur) and for its nightclubs that act as a magnet for the coolest revellers in Europe! Scott Fitzgerald referred to it as a 'constant carnival' and the phrase holds true today.

The Pinede and the beaches

A 'must see' in Juan les Pins is The Pinede with its beautiful sandy beaches framed by the pine trees from which the resort gained its name. 'Pinede' means 'pine grove' and these very pine groves once echoed to the sounds of the hedonistic parties of the 'roaring twenties' frequented by none other than Rudolph Valentino. The beaches are perfect for swimming and on summer evenings they are frequently packed with diners enjoying the warm climate and the lovely setting.

The Jazz Festival

The Juan les Pins jazz festival is famed throughout the music world and has attracted some of the best-known stars of the genre since its inception in 1960. The festival is held every year in the Pinede. Juan les Pins' links with jazz are illustrated by the fact that the town is now twinned with the French quarter of New Orleans.

From sandy wasteland to star studded paradise

The beginnings of Juan les Pins were very different from the lively resort we know today. It was notable only for pine trees and sandy beaches, but the combination appealed to two men who spotted its potential and whose vision (not to mention money) laid the foundations for its success. These man were Edouard Boudain, who revamped a failing casino and attracted crowds with cabaret acts such as 'The Dolly Sisters', and the wealthy and notorious American, Frank Jay Gould, whose influence and investment is credited with putting Juan les Pins well and truly on the map for the international jet set.

How to Get There

Air travel couldn't be easier as Nice Airport has a choice of airlines flying direct from the UK. Rail links are also good with trains to Nice and Aix en Provence and Antibes.
