A renowned tourist site
Biot, a medieval jewel perched against a backdrop of verdant countryside, is ideally located between Nice and Cannes. It has managed to protect a quality of life and an identity linked to its history and art craft. The arrival of artists such as Fernand Léger, whose museum stands at the foot of the village, and the installation of La Verrerie de Biot, have brought in new creative energy that can be felt in the numerous art and craft workshops in Biot.
The extension of the Sophia Antipolis technology park is today giving a new face to a town that is determinedly turned towards the future. Located in Biot, just a few kilometres from Antibes, La Verrerie de Biot is a true tourist site and groups several key points of interest:
- the glassblowers’ studio,
- Biot Glass Ecomuseum,
- the great showroom,
- The Galerie Internationale du Verre,
- a decoration shop
- a restaurant.
Each year La Verrerie de Biot receives close to 700 000 visitors. Alone, with their families or in a group, they all want one thing: to discover the unique know-how and tradition of La Verrerie de Biot.
