Biot is perched up high and and overlooks hills covered with mimosas and olive trees, not 20 minutes from Antibes. Visiting Biot is to take a real tour through Provençal history which dates back to 154 BC.
Its streets and alleys are named accordingly : la Calade, Le Portugon, Le Cul de Sac, La Calade des Migraniers, Les Croûtons, Place de l'Airette, Rue Rondon, Rue des Orfevres, Place de la Catastrophe (where two houses collapsed on June 12, 1898), and Place des Arcades which is outlined on two sides by Romanesque and Gothic arcades.
Do visit the glass and ceramic shops as well as Le Mas des Orangers, an interesting shop selling provençal goods.
Also the fascinating shop Harmonie Decoration is worth seeing at 16, Chemin Neuf with its wonderful interior design pieces.
