Juan-les-Pins is a glamorous beach resort and spa in the commune of Antibes, in the Alpes-Maritimes, in southeastern France, on the Côte d'Azur. It is situated between Nice and Cannes, 13 km from the Nice Côte d'Azur Airport.
It is a popular holiday destination for the international jet-set, with a casino, nightclubs and beaches of fine-grained sand.

The history of Antibes reaches back to the ancient Greeks, whereas beach-lined and cosmopolitan Juan-les-Pins is filled with art-deco elegance. Many artists and writers visited this area, including Graham Greene, Max Ernst and even Picasso, who depicted the town in many paintings and now has a museum dedicated to him.
