Located right in the historic heart of Valbonne, the Place des Arcades apartments benefit from having everything on the doorstep. There are at least 10 restaurants within walking distance and numerous cafes and bars, as well as all the local shops. Friday is market day in Valbonne when the village comes alive with hundreds of small stalls selling artefacts, cheeses, and wines of the region. Then the first Sunday of each month Valbonne hosts the region's brocante - bringing together antiques and bric-a-brac sellers from the surrounding villages and the coast.
Originally the Roman settlement of Vallis Bona, Valbonne is a picturesque medieval town with narrow streets and traditional stone and painted houses. Ideally situated between the Alps and the Mediterranean, it benefits from easy access to the mountain villages of the interior and is only 20 minutes from Cannes, Antibes and the beaches of the coast and half an hour from Nice airport. Activities include golf (9 courses within 15 minutes), tennis, riding, cycling and fabulous walks.
