Getting there


Booking information

ntibes is quite centrally located on the Cote d'Azur, so is ideal to use as a base to explore the coast and inland.

If you have a car, you are only a few minutes drive from the Provencal motorway that runs along the coast, but, with excellent public services, it is far from necessary to have your own transport.

The bus station is only a few minutes walk from Les Trois Palmes, and the train station is about ten minutes away. There are, however, frequent shuttle buses to both stations you can take from very close to Les Trois Palmes if you wish.

Antibes is connected directly into France's high-speed train network - TGV's stop at Antibes railway station. There are also frequent local trains up and down the coast and inland - 15 minutes to Nice and just half-an-hour to Monaco and not much more to the Italian border heading east, and just a few minutes to Cannes heading west.

Film festival and Monaco grand prix

Les Trois Palmes is close enough to Cannes for the Film Festival in May, and even an excellent play to stay for the Grand Prix in Monaco, also in the same month.
