Biot is famous for its blown glass, and there is a large studio where you can see the artisans at work. Nearby is a very good museum of art glass, as well as a shop where you can see and buy all kinds of the famous Biot "bubble" glass. There's also an attractive old town to visit.
Cannes, Antibes, and Nice are all reasonably close to Biot, as are Vallauris, Valbonne, and the perfume town of Grasse. There is a lot to do and see in the area--we have friends nearby and have spent a fair amount of time visiting the villages, churches, and museums. You should have a wonderful summer there. Bonne chance!
