Antibes is a great small and quaint town. I second the Collioure suggestion, beautiful scenery.

I would recommend Collioure for a lunch stop, and the Pezenas for two nights at Hotel de Vigniamont, which is a fantastic B&B.  It's a great base to visit the Languedoc-Roussillon region, not far from the beach and local wineries.  Aix-en-Provence is a lively university town with one of the most beautiful boulevards in France, the Cours Mirabeau, and worth a night or two.From there, I would recommend Villefranche-sur-Mer as a base to explore the French Riviera, including Monaco.  It has a stunning bay, a nice beach, and the Welcome Hotel is a great little hotel.  You can drive or take the train to Monaco, Nice, Menton, and the rest of the area.  

Going back to Barcelona, you could break the trip up with a night in Arles or Nimes, both of which have well-preserved Roman Arenas and charm.

Have a great trip.
