How tourist-y is Antibes in January or February?
I need a get-away soon, but I don't want to be around large numbers of tourists milling around, taking photos, partying. Unlike many tourists these days, I'm not "looking for the action" (excitement) at all.
I do speak French fluently and have been a francophile most of my life.
Is Antibes in the winter subdued enough, quiet enough for me to spend two weeks just de-compressing, wandering around, reading (French novels) and listening to classical music in my apartment? Or should I look elsewhere on the Cote d'Azur, somewhere smaller like Vence or Beaulieu, etc.??

My boyfriend and I are traveling to the French Riviera for a couple of days in beginning of august - i know it's the middle of tourist season :(. But despite that where is a nice place to go that will be somewhat mellow and not as pretentious as Cannes? We are looking to enjoy sights and beaches for a moderate price if possible. Thanks :)
I know it has 70,000 or so inhabitants:-).
I live in a town of 100,000 which I think is of decent size..of course not a big city with lots of stuff to do, but it's far from a small village.
When I see pictures or videos of Antibes, it seems to be that Antibes (despite having a similar number of inhabitants) is the size of a small village, though.
But on the other hand, it might be bigger than it looks (and of a decent size, too like 70,000 makes me think), because everybody just films the beach and the old-town?
I am planning to visit Antibes for 1 week in mid march with my partner, and our 4 month old baby, as it seems to be not as busy as places like Nice, Cannes, etc. Obivously we'd like to visit those places on the odd day here and there, but as we have the little one in tow now, we'd like to be able to "retreat" to somewhere abit quieter. Or if anyone can suggest, another location, abit quieter, but central to all these places? any info would be extremely appreciated! (ps. we will have a car rental for the week)
hi We have a weeks accomodation in Antibes on the French Riviera and would like to do a trip to Paris.

I am interested in renting for 2 women for 3 months is it possible to find a place for around 600 euros a month and is internet hookup possible
