Hey all, About this time last year I was posting about places to stay in Palma. After a semi successful summer season with temp work n a bit of day work, I have been forced to take the winter off due to lack of work. But not all is lost I am planing to head our to Antibes around the first week of April for the boat show! I was wondering where is the best place to stay and what is the nearest airport? Thanks for your help!

Two minutes research will answer all your questions, nearest airport is Nice.

I have done a lot of research into hostels! found 5 or 6 but they all seam to b around the €30-€35 euro mark, and as you would know the best places are normally found throw word of mouth! So a little bit of advice on "which one would be the best place to stay" would be appreciated.

Best thing to do is to get your boots on ground zero Antibes , then swing by the Blue Lady or other crew hangouts and ask around. New yachty crash pads are happening all the time.

Really, pre register with crew agents, get your cv great, try avoid crew houses (150+ euros a week) flatsharings a better option less networking though. try use bars for networking not being pissed spending all your money and ruining you name. dockwalk and talk. make yourself known.
