Biot is a commune in the Alpes-Maritimes department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. It is located near Antibes, between Cannes and Villeneuve-Loubet on the top of a hill overlooking the Mediterranean.

Biot was a pottery centre from the beginning of the 16th century until the 18th century. In the middle of the 20th century, Biot once again became famous for its decorative pottery and glasswork.[citation needed]
