Cap d’Antibes

Cap d’Antibes – historically one of the most prestigious and expensive places in France

Cap d’Antibes is a picturesque headland between Antibes and Juan les Pins, and like Cap Ferrat, it attracts the wealthiest people.

Cap d’Antibes is one of the most prestigious and expensive places in all of France.

Cap d’Antibes, like Cap Ferrat is associated with the names of celebrities and millionaires.
It all started in 1865 when a famous botanist Gustave Thuret noticed this beautiful foreland, bought a piece of land, and started his experiments in acclimatizing tropical plants to local conditions.

Thanks to his work Australian eucalyptus and many varieties of palm trees can now be seen on the French Riviera. And the sumptuous green parks became homes to luxurious palaces and villas for Europeans of high standing.
