About Alisa Gallgher-Pugh

This is us with Grandma enjoying the beach in Antibes. Although we grew up in London we visited France frequently as a family. We regularly come out for family holidays to Antibes and long weekends away. Our family love coming out to the house too!

Alisa Gallgher-Pugh purchased this house in 1998

Why Alisa Gallgher-Pugh chose Antibes

This house belonged to our father who loved France and everything French. He particularly loved the old town and this house has charm and character of a typical French town house in the 'vieille ville'.

What makes this house unique

Everyone says the climb to the top is worth it. Relax and have a glass of wine on the roof terrace and enjoy the views. We love watching the super yachts during the summer and the sun sets can be pretty amazing too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

All that remains is to say thanks for the use of your beautiful property. We’ve had an exhausting week but the relative peace and quiet of Antibes has made for a very pleasant trip away from the hustle and bustle of Cannes.

Lovely house in the Old Town of Antibes

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly positioned house, steps away from the Provençal Market, favourite restaurant the Comptoir and minutes walk from two beaches. The house is very comfortable and ideally located to enjoy everything Antibes and beyond has to offer. The crowning glory is the roof terrace, a perfect spot for a sunny breakfast and later in the year an early evening glass of rose. Lovely long weekend with old friends.

Gorgeous French house in old Antibes

  • 5 of 5

This lovely, very French, house is in the perfect location in Antibes. Just a short walk from the wonderful covered market, and equally near the sea where you can sit and watch the boats zip across the bay. The house is 4 storeys high with a lovely light sitting room/kitchen on top floor and a welcome surprise is the roof terrace from which you can see the sea. It is quite small, but big enough to enjoy breakfast al fresco, and a lovely spot for some local wines pre-dinner.

The house is well equipped, and beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms are lovely, and the kitchen has everything you need.

From the house you can walk for miles along the sea front, stopping off at the odd cafe or bar. Or stroll a few hundred metres from the house to the Picasso Museum, or into town to the many shops, restaurants, market etc. There's also a marina where you can admire the luxury yachts, and a lovely town beach.

Antibes is such a fabulous place to visit, and this house couldn't be better placed to see all is has to offer.

Lovely comfortable house to stay in

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable. The kitchen is compact but has everything you need to take and full advantage of all the delicious local produce available in the nearby Provençal Market. Also, close to the beach and all local transport, enabling you to explore the coast. A great place for a weekend or a full on holiday.

very comfortable and great location

  • 4 of 5

lovely 2 week stay in Alisa's house which is situated in Old Antibes

It's a fab location as you are 5 mins away from the local beach and 12 mins away from the other beaches in the cap d'Antibes. You can see the sea and beaches from the roof terrace. It is also close to the market and supermarkets.Lovely restaurants and bars are all in stumbling distance!

It's a roomy ,down to earth house with everything you would need for a self catering stay in France. The stairs upto the roof terrace may be of concern for people with mobility issues or young children and you would have to bear that in mind.

it's very well located for Antibes and exploring the riviera as about a 25 minute walk to the station where you can get trains to Nice,Monaco and cannes.

This is the second time we have stayed in Alisa's house and it feels like home from home.

The french contact Sabrina was also very helpful with queries such as finding a local taxi firm and if the tv lost channels

Owner's Response: I'm very glad you enjoyed your second holiday at our house. Yes, the stairs up to the roof terrace are steep, so children must be accompanied. The view at the top is wonderful, especially at sunset. I hope to welcome you back again next year. AG-P
