Overview

About the property

Stunning Sea View Apt on the Ramparts in the Old Town of Antibes

In a unique location with breathtaking panoramic views of the sea, mountains, sandy beach, Fort Carré and Port Vauban, you’ll experience a magical atmosphere here for your holiday. We affectionately call the apartment 'Place de Rêves' (Place of Dreams) as the building’s entrance is just off the ‘Place de Revely’ in the Old Town of Antibes. It is on the 3rd (top) floor in the building next to the former home of the artist Nicolas de Staël. The apartment has 2 balconies, 1 in the bedroom and 1 off the living room. The bedroom is Air Conditioned with a king-sized bed (160 x 200cm) and there is a large sofa bed (170 x 200cm) in the living room. The sunny and spacious living room comes equipped with a Roland digital piano overlooking the marina. Best of all, the Mediterranean Sea lies just outside so the views are quite stunning!

The apartment is located a one-minute walk through the Place de Revely and under the Roman arch of the Old City wall to the famous market called the ‘Marché Provençal’ where you’ll find fresh local produce. Within a few meters is the world acclaimed Picasso Museum where he worked in the 1940s and where you’ll find a stunning collection of his paintings and ceramics. Picasso painted his "La Joie de Vivre" in Antibes in 1946. Today, Antibes still embodies The Joy of Life.

Possibly the most perfectly-situated apartment in Antibes, you’ll find a large choice of restaurants, shops, and cafes within easy walking distance (2 minutes or less!). The apartment provides an ideal setting for a car-less vacation on the French Riviera. We can provide for pick-up and drop-off at Nice (NCE) Airport if needed at an extra charge.

The fantastic views make the open plan kitchen/living room/dining area a natural gathering area for relaxing, and cooks will appreciate the well-appointed kitchen. The kitchen includes an electric oven, electric cooker with glass hob, microwave, fridge with freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer combo, Nespresso machine, milk frother and coffee presses (cafetières) in two sizes. All fittings are high quality and the kitchen will have everything you need to cook fine food at home.

Whether you're lingering over a pain au chocolat and coffee on the balcony table-for-2 for breakfast or you’re proudly serving dinner made from fresh Provençal ingredients you purchased at the market on the dining table (seats 6), you’ll enjoy the ever changing views of the Mediterranean below.

The well-appointed bathroom has a shower, tub and towel warmer.

For exploring further afield, the apartment is a 10-minute walk to trains/buses to Cannes, Nice, Monaco, and the Nice airport. Ski resorts in the Alps are located within a 1.5-2 hour drive (Isola 2000 & Auron).

Your rental includes an "arrival starter kit" (toilet paper, paper towel roll, soap, coffee, tea, milk, wine and water), cleaning (for a 2 guest rental, a £50.00 charge will be added for 3 or more guests), bed linen, towels, beach towels & beach gear, electricity, water, WiFi, and phone calls to fixed lines in most parts of the world (Europe, Continental USA and Canada) and phone calls to mobile phones in the continental USA and Canada. Please note, you will be charged from your deposit for all other calls.

Why Jonathan & Judy chose Antibes

There are very few properties with this location in the Old Town of Antibes looking over the sea. As we have two apartments in the Old Town, we have decided to offer this apartment for holiday lets starting in May, 2014.

What makes this apartment unique

Stunning panoramic sea views. Everything you would want or need within 1 minute walking distance from the cobbled streets of the Old Town. Including a sandy beach right below the living room balcony.

Magical,enchanting, comfortably ideal.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrive we felt comfortable in this lovely appartment . While the weather was not as warm and sunny as we had hoped, we were able to open the balcony doors and sit comfortably at our table viewing the blues of the Mediterranean and the snow capped Alpes. Our hosts did everything to make us feel comfortable, providing coffee, milk in the refrigerator and essential cooking oils and spices. The location was ideal for quick trips to the market for fresh produce and bread or long excursions knowing we would wind ourselves back to the seashore. Quaint shops and cafés and restaurants were all in walking distance. I strongly recommend this charming appartment set in the pittoresque town of Antibes. I know I will return.

Wonderful magical apartment overlooking the Sea and the French Riviera

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay in this charming apartment in Antibes. The location is fabulous-right in the Old Town section of the city. The apartment is well equiped and situated with widows and a balcony overlooking the beach and the Sea-with spectacular views all the way down the coast to Nice snd beyond. We spent hours just sitting on the balcony marveling at the view. We are hoping to return often. Jonathan and Judy are great hosts and they respond quickly to any problems or special needs. We rented this apartment based on all the glowing reviews and I’m happy to add one more glowing review to the many that have already been submitted.

Merci Beaucoup Judy!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were stunned when we first saw the views from this apartment. Not only does it have a nice balcony with views from the inside living areas, but there are additional picturesque window scenes throughout the apartment. Judy could not have been more helpful with accessories and items provided to make our stay comfortable, and was available throughout the 4 night stay through text or phone. Antibes provides excellent restaurants, markets, walking,paths, etc., and all are within a short distance from the apartment. We would definitely return to this apartment, and have already recommended it to friends and relatives should they visit the Riviera.

The best view in town!

  • 5 of 5

As Rich Steve's says in his book on the area, the square in which no 14 Place de Reves is situated is the prettiest corner of the old town and, having visited most of the towns along this coast, we have definitely found Antibes to be the most charming - with a wonderful friendly atmosphere.

The view from the French windows in the apartment is spectacular. The apartment is airy, spacious and very comfortable - especially the super- king sized bed. Jonathan recommended some great restaurants and was very helpful - there are beach chairs and bags to borrow and all sorts of things that you may have forgotten to bring with you. We definitely hope to return.

Lovely stay in Antibes!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described and the views were spectacular! The location is perfect - a quick walk to the train station, the beach, and right in the Old Town which is charming. We couldn't have asked for better hosts - Judy & Jonathan thank you so much for making our first trip to Antibes so special! We hope to be back one day!
