Our Apartment is 500 metres from the sea in a quiet road. Golfe-Juan has lovely large sandy beaches and safe swimming in clean water. There are private beach sections and free public sections with free showers. During the summer there is a free hail and ride shuttle bus which takes you around Golfe-Juan if you don’t want to walk
La Desirade is not in the center of Golfe-Juan - which is about 1km - 1/2 mile away. The apartment is on the Juan les Pins side. You can see our position on a map at http://tinyrurl.com/desirade
Golfe-Juan is the real Cote d’Azur showing all its beauty as the inhabitants have kept it unspoilt. Unlike Antibes or Juan-les-Pins, Golfe-Juan has not turned into to tourist centre . The hills run down into the sea so you can enjoy water sports and the arts all around the area. It is only minutes to Vallauris nearby with its ceramics centre started by Picasso. Enjoy a trip to The Maeght Foundation in the hills with fabulous modern art and sculpture. It isn’t far to Italy if you want original pizzas
There is a nearby harbour for yachts and boats, with harbourside restaurants and cafes. Golfe-Juan is a little town with bars, bakers where you will be able to buy fresh bread each day together with other shops offering ready to cook dishes. There is a street market not far away which you can open to explore in the evenings.
Juan-le-Pins is nearby and is a centre for night-life and disco’s . Antibes on the other side of Juan-les-Pins is worth exploring. Vallauris, the upper part of Golfe-Juan is interesting and famous world-wide for its pottery and links with Picasso.
