Biot is a lovely picturesque old town located up in the hills of Antibes. This Medieval  town is full of culture, history and art.

Founded by Celts, invaded by Romans, taken over by pirates, ruled by medieval knights and sacked by the black plague: the old town of Biot has a rich history spanning over 2000 years. Today, Biot is a charming town famous for its glassblowing,ceramics and pottery, as well as its shady cafes, jumble of medieval buildings and pretty hilltop views across the French Riviera. The village has the feel of an artist's colony,with lots of open workshops where you can go in and watch artists create their pieces. or just stroll through cobbled streets framed by stone archways and glimpses of the sea.

Artists of all types can be found gathering in this medieval village to enjoy its rich and artistic culture. Workshops are dotted around the village with artists opening their doors and welcoming guests to watch them create their pieces.
