Juan-Les-Pins, commonly known as Juan, is a seaside resort and district of Antibes, located in the Alpes-Maritimes, on the Mediterranean Sea. Even if one distinguishes Juan-Les-Pins from Antibes, the two sites are intimately linked.
It was in 1880 that the son of Queen Victoria, the Duke of Albany, gave birth to the commune.[+]
In the past, Juan-Les-Pins was only a large pine forest bordered by beautiful sandy beaches.
In the 1920s, this charming seaside resort was largely developed under the impetus of Edouard Baudoin and the wealthy American Frank Jay Gould, who built a casino and a ten-storey hotel there. Numerous personalities were invited there, such as André Gide, Cocteau and Chaplin.
The greatest notoriety of the city: jazz. Since 1925, during the Roaring Twenties, its art has settled here for eternity. After the Second World War, Juan ended up being the Mecca of the great names in jazz. Indeed, it was in 1960 that Antibes Juan-Les-Pins saw the birth of its first jazz festival, which quickly gained unparalleled renown and managed to attract great artists such as Ray Charles, Armstrong, Hancock, Sydney Bechet, Georges Benson and Ella Fitzgerald.
The assets of Juan les Pins
Like a great mass unique in the world, the International Jazz Festival attracts fans from all over the world during the whole month of July. It generates a unique nightlife with improvised concerts, a real movement but also a magnificent cohort of musicians and artists.
Numerous activities are offered by this beautiful town: museums and guided tours, excursions, theme parks, water sports, thalassotherapy, creative glass and perfume workshops, car and bicycle hire. As previously mentioned, Antibes Juan-Les-Pins is closely linked to Art and very much appreciated by artists, many of whom have immortalized the town on their canvases.
There are many restaurants offering many seafood specialties. Also, Juan-Les-Pins offers a magnificent 5-hectare park called the Parc Exflora and designed by landscape architect Alain Goudot. It is thus the result of the juxtaposition of several beautiful gardens, of Roman, Moorish, Provencal, Tuscan but also Greek inspiration. It is thus possible to admire large century-old trees, olive trees, cypresses and umbrella pines. Also, an open-air theatre surrounded by beautiful arcades evokes the Italian Renaissance.
The commune of Juan-Les-Pins, between Cannes and Nice and close to Biot / Vallauris / Golfe Juan, is located 12 kilometres from the Nice Côte d'Azur international airport and 20 kilometres from the Cannes Mandelieu airfield.
