Hello all. I have been reading the posts in the Cote d'Azur forum over the course of the last few weeks and had a few questions I was hoping you could help me with. I am traveling with a group of late 20/early 30's friends from the US who like to have fun. In recent years we have gone to Ibiza and Mykonos and would like to visit the south of France next July 2015.
We are debating where to stay as a base for 4 days (we are going to Spain for the first half of our trip). We like going to the beach, beach clubs, nice (but late) dinners, bars/clubs at night, and like a more "beach resort" feel (we loved mykonos in this respect). After reading numerous posts on TA, I believe we would be best served in Cannes or Juan les-Pins. We are also discussing doing day trips to St. Tropez and/or Monaco.
From what I've read, it seems as though Juan les-Pins may have more of a beach resort feel, and Antibes sounds liike a great village to explre, but Cannes may be better suited for traveling to other locales by train.
Any advice on whether to stay in Cannes or Juan les-Pins (or elsewhere), and any other advice on the trip, would be greatly appreciated. While this is my first post on TA, the information on these forums has assisted us greatly in our past travels. so thank you in advance.
