If you don't know the work of Fernard Leger, this is the place to discover it. A totally civilised museum in a beautiful setting which does all it can to show Leger's progression from post-impressionism through Cubism to tubism.
Suggestions: buy the catalogue and take your time; suggested visit 1hr 45- 2hr. If you are coming from Nice, take the train to Beaulieu-sur-Mer then order an icila ride to the door or take the no 10 bus. For me, it surpasses the Picasso Museum at Antibes.

This is a very old church dating to 1118. The current building was completed in 1535. Several of the paintings were painted 500 years ago. It is not an ornate church but a good example of well preserved old church.

A FAMILY COMPANY If the tradition of glass in Provence is millenium, in Biot, it begun in 1956, date on which La Verrerie de Biot created bubble glass. Even today it carries high the flag of craftsmanship in the contemporary era. A UNIQUE KNOW-HOW In 1956, La Verrerie de Biot with the creation of the bubble glass marks a turning point, a renaissance of Provence glass. She managed to control the bubble, making a defect, the bubble, a quality: bubble glass. The soul of the Biot glass rests in its bubbles, each glass is unique. A RENOWNED TOURISTIC SITE La Verrerie de Biot is a tourist site that brings together: - The glassblowers Studio, 10 master glassmakers draw bright material on fire, blow and create under the eyes of visitors unique objects. The workshop is accessible to the public, inviting him to understand the mysteries of the Biot glass manufacturing and admire the know-how of the craftsmen - The Showroom , - The Ecomuseum of glass, Member of Eco-Museum and society Museum Federation. The Ecomuseum of the Biot glass aims to highlight and publicize the tradition of glass, - A gift shop, - The Galerie Internationale du Verre , an area of 300 m2 was built to show the glass as a museum shows his works. The Verrerie de Biot welcomes each year seven thousand visitors. LATEST CREATION Creation of a luminescent glass line named LUMIN'ESCENCE BIOT (R): the bubble glows in the dark !.
Having previously seen a couple of other glass blowing demonstrations this one left us distinctly underwhelmed. The best bit by far was the exhibition of amazing glass works of art by a variety of international artists,really stunning.
As others have said, locally blown glass was pricey and not to our taste. A trip into the old town is definitely recommended for other glass works and generally a place to potter around.

Installed since 1980 in an old oil mill dating back from the 15th century,the glass blowers benefit from an exceptional setting where Biot tradition and art join in harmony. It is in this magical place that Robert and Antoine PIERINI set their imagination free. Different Exhibitions, thematic or collaborations are organized during the year.
As there appears to be a multiple listing for the glassblowers of Biot I will leave my review on both.
Ut was absolutely wonderful to watch the workers elegantly craft beautiful pieces of glassware.
Such a talented few work here.
You can purchase the glassware and I have to say the prices are really reasonable.
A must do attraction should you happen to find yourself in the quaint title village of Biot.

Our hotel was in this square - or else we may never have found it. Its tucked away almost up a side street. It contains or quirky arty hotel and its rstuarant, some nice houses and a few bits of sculpture - but your visit to Biot wont be ruined if you dont find it.

Discover a complex of exception, thought in its least details: high-end and ultra-connected equipment, sports follow-up, coaching, collective lessons, swimming pool, tennis & padel.
my younger brother trains in Mouratoglou Tennis Academy and i stay strong of the opinion that we made a right choice sending him there. Professional atmosphere and great opportunities for children, with a high Prospect in life as well as teaching youngs organization and discipline. Great place, i would definitely recommend it for your young and not so much tennis friends or children!

Was surprisingly very reasonably priced... i thought a fancy looking restaurant, good crowd, great view, would be expensive, but the food was good and it was reasonable.
we ordered the meal of the day - swordfish, and the ratatouille that came with it was very nicely done. the veggies seemed slightly overdone, but I'm not an expert in ratatouille anyway.
... the dessert bar, and with every French Lunch you must have dessert, was excellent. Will certainly go there again.

Allow an hour to look around and take in the history of the village expressed in ceramic history and design. A fascinating small museum. See if you can find how many ceramic jars were made and used to export produce on horseback in a single year - its a big number!

Eclectic contemporary art gallery in a XVth century village on french riviera between Cannes and Monaco
The reason for the one point we have given .is not the quality of the art they expose . In fact we bought from their shop near the port in Cannes on April 23rd,2013 , a Doddle ,the one with the fishspine on the head . We paid 2500 Euros by credit card. Then gentleman in charge said that.he could not give us momentarely the facture and the certificate of origine but would mail them in the shortest time to the adress in Turkey ,which we gave him . We thanked him and departed.
Twenty days , no news. We sent two e-mails to the main Gallery in Biot , no reaction ,
The following comments are submitted because:
The documents which sgould normally given to the client , promised to be sent the next day or so had not arrived during the following 25 days .
The two e-mails sent to the gallery about this subject still remain un-answered.
We do not have any use for the facture nor for the certificate .But we noneless wished to give this information because we think that the lack of business ethics we eprouved might be also valid on some other aspects of operation of this Gallery.

If you like a cosy wine bar that's not on the busy main strip, this is for you. Owner was excellent and the Chablis and Rose beautiful!
Owner made us wonderfully welcome, even made sure our table was completely square on the slopped walk way by using wine bottle cork cut offs - genius!
Look forward to returning again.
