Welcome to Biot

Biot’s history dates back to the Roman Empire when it was officially mentioned for the first time. And even now, one cannot fail to recognise that the history of the old village ("le vieux village") has been quite agitated. Today, this historic centre provides a perfect setting for typical village life in the south of France and thus is a popular place for tourists. Nonetheless, Biot has been able to retain its individuality and authenticity which is reflected in its narrow streets, cobbled roads and many other hidden charms. That is probably the reason why the famous tourist guide Michelin nominated Biot as one of the nicest "Detours de France".

Biot’s unique location in the heart of the Côte d’Azur

Biot can be found nested in the triangle made up of Cannes, Nice and Grasse. And, because of its proximity to the sea, it makes an ideal location for a beach holdiday. Within a half-hour drive, you can easily visit Grasse, the city of perfumes; Cannes, the city of festivals; and Nice, the administrative centre of the “Alpes-Maritimes”. And don’t forget the Roman city of Antibes, only 6 km away, where you can explore Europe’s biggest yacht harbour.

small, romantic but still big enough

No matter if you want to take a stroll at the beach, in one of the near parcs or along the river "la Brague", on foot, by bus or by car it's all just a few minutes away. On the other hand you can enjoy the day in the village, on one of it's plenty places or on the terrace of a café or restaurant.
