Villas for rent in Biot
Holiday Villa Rentals in and around Biot
On holiday in the South of France, you couldn't wish for a more traditional, Provencal village than Biot. Conveniently located between Cannes and Nice, set slightly back from the coast, Biot is an ideal base for enjoying the beach resorts of the Riveria, and exploring the beautiful mountain scenery and hilltop villages of the interior. The village largely follows a pretty high street lined with shops, restaurants and glassware shops, ending in an ancient village square, The Place des Arcades - a smaller version of its namesake in Valbonne. Biot is famous for glass blowing and is reputed to be where smoked glass was first invented. There are several workshops which you can visit and even blow your own glass. Restaurants abound in Biot including the Cafe Brun set in a peaceful private courtyard and the Cafe Des Arcades, run by the same Italian family for over 40 years and serving some of the region's best Provencal food.
