Antibes Travel Guide
Last one in's a rotten egg! We're finding the best places in the world to stick our toes in this summer (or next winter) for our World's Coolest Pools map. Know of any pools we must check out? Let us know.
Ask the old lady with the full complement of well-traveled Louis Vuitton suitcases: Sometimes the deluxe original is still the best. If you'd rather look to the young and hip, they'd have to agree with the seasoned jetsetter that the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc and its infinity pool is still one of the greats of the world. Twilight star Robert Pattinson will even vouch for it.
The grande dame hotel popular with the Cannes crowd was originally a mansion rented by loaded Americans during the Jazz Agein fact, it inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald to write Tender Is The Night after a stay with his friends in the uber-plush environs. So snooty is the hotel that, until 2006, it didn't even accept credit cards. And don't even think of stashing that cash in a non-designer bag.
The seawater-filled pool faces the Mediterranean and, if you remembered to bring it, your yacht. TripAdvisor commenters note that it can get crowded for those without the wherewithal to arrange for its private rental, so stake your claim to a chaise early.

Please welcome our favorite super world travelers back onto the scene. Tuesday night in Antibes, France, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had a romantic dinner at Michelangelo's restaurant. The two are in town while Brad promotes Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds at the Cannes Film Festival.
The restaurant, located about seven miles outside of Cannes, is known for serving a variety of Mediterranean cuisines and being a nice dinner escape for celebs at Cannes. Last night's entree came with more than just a dose of Brangelina; Twilight star Robert Pattinson also made an appearance at Michelango’s, although he was a third wheel, dining with Emile Hirsh and his girlfriend.
In other date night news, The new Captain Kirk, Chirs Pine, was spotted out with Audrina Patridge at the Red Lion Tavern in Silverlake, CA. The two are reportedly dating, or at least Chris wishes they were dating. The Red Lion is known for their extensive selection of German beer so maybe he can blame it on the alcohol and move on before he ends up a special guest star on The Hills.
