Biot, South of France

Description: A centre of glass making, not really worth visiting for the scenery, although the village is not unattractive.

Location: Exit A8 Antibes Est. Take direction “Les Trois Moulins” or  Biot.

General Info: Open from 9.30AM – 8PM Mon – Sat  in the summer. Sun & Bank Holidays open 10.30AM – 7.30PM but closed for lunch 1.30PM – 2.30PM.  Verrerie de Biot (glassworks) website.

Our recommendations:  Take an unaccompanied tour of the glassworks to see the glass blowers at work.

For the children: This is the kind of place they will enjoy for a brief visit, ideal for a rainy day (although you don’t get many of them in this part of France!).
