Biot

Biot is a very picturesque and well known village which dates back about 2500 years. Close to the famous beaches between Antibes and Nice this village is popular with tourists and still retains much of its natural charm and its feeling of antiquity. Biot is particularly famous for the hand blown glassware made to this day in the village, typically a clear or colored transparent glass with little bubbles. Both historic and modern, a lovely village to visit.
