Stayed at Biot -part of Antibes, (pronounced ANTIBE) excellent bus and train service to Nice or Monaco. Local journeys all 1 euro. Nice restuarants and very nice people. Don't speak French very well, but had no problem.
Old Antibes very busy, drunks sitting around in bus station, otherwise nice place with market and pretty town squares.
Stayed at Camping du Pylone which is a very clean well run site with lots of local amenities, ie Fairground, Marineland and Aquasplash all very clean and well run - Aquasplash is brilliant.
Rail and bus service is a few minutes from Antibes and Juan Le Pins. Buy some beach shoes and it is great even on the stony beach!
