A comfortable quiet centrally located apartment ideal for two people

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Jul-2016
A 1st floor, one bedroom apartment, well equipped in a very convenient location

Although centrally situated on a main road, this apartment is located to the rear of the building and is not troubled by traffic noise. It is reached up two flights of stairs. It comprises a large double bedroom, a well appointed shower room (no bath), a separate, fully equipped, kitchen and a reasonably sized living room with double doors on to a lovely terrace which catches the sun from around mid-day to early evening - a great location for lunch, dinner or just a relaxing drink. The apartment benefits from a private off-street parking place. It is ideally placed within a few minutes stroll of all the attractions and amenities Antibes has to offer. Shopping facilities are only two blocks away. The daily Provencal Market is an eight minute walk through the old town. The rail station, which brings the whole coast from Cannes to Italy within easy reach, is ten minutes away. The bus station, serving local needs, is less than a five minute walk - as is the sea and the beaches just beyond.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful holiday in this comfortable and convenient apartment. Very French in style with everything you could want and ideal for a couple. On the edge of the old town, handy for restaurants and supermarket, the beach only a few minute down the road.

The owners Steve and his wife couldn't have been more helpful or hospitable. We would happily recommend it to anyone looking for self catering accommodation in the Antibes area - brilliant!!"

A relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, traditional building with all the amenities we required. We were a bit concerned about the lack of air conditioning, but the fans provided worked really well with the high ceilings. We were warned by Alan our 'greeter' that WiFi could be a bit hit and miss ; which it did indeed prove to be, but it made no difference to our enjoyment of our stay (we used local cafe's internet instead when we needed it).

Afternoon sun on the charming balcony, an introduction to the local Rose wine via the welcoming bottle of vino (now a confirmed fan) and glorious weather during our stay. What more could we want.

We hope to return again and thank Frances for allowing us to enjoy her charming apartment and Alan for his help and guidance (and being so charming himself).

Could not recommend the apartment more.

Comfortable apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to this very comfortable flat. It's very central, close to all amenities with everything provided for an easy holiday. Both the owners and the agent Alan ensured that our stay went smoothly. Although we arrived after 10.pm Alan was waiting for us and provided tea and biscuits, very welcome after a long flight. We hope to return and would recommend it to a couple or solo traveller. Liam and Mary

Ideal Holiday home for two in Antibes

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this cosy, compact, comfortable and well equipped apartment for two. Some antique furniture and a splendid French bedstead made us feel we were deep in the culture. South facing balcony with full sun in the afternoons with some excellent flowers which we hoped we helped come out to their best. See attached photograph showing just one of the blooms.

The flat is at the back of the apartment block and is quiet. It is in an older building with the traditional pretty pale green shutters. It is located very close to the centre of Antibes, the old town, the Provencal market and the sea. There are good and very reasonable restaurants nearby. There is a comprehensive file of information on the locality including restaurant recommendations. We had the time to taste food in them all and can attest to their excellence of that on offer.

The flat is only three quarters of an hour on the bus from Nice airport and a short walk through a central shopping area. It is also an easy to walk to the Cap d'Antibes and where there is so much to explore. La Plage de la Garoupe is lovely and has a restaurant on the beach in which we relaxed – good cheval burger and chips which we can highly recommend.

We enjoyed some wonderful bus journeys to Nice, Cannes, Vence, Biot old town and Eden Roc. They are all also easily enjoyed in a day trip. The most wonderful Church by Matisse is well worth a visit with lunch in the old town. Biot is smaller but has the most interesting lunch venues. Nice has an excellent market, but the scale and quality of Antibes itself means you don’t need to go far for many different and fantastic French experiences.

It was also reassuring to have an English speaking agent, Alan who is very helpful and responsive if anything is needed. The book loving owners had arranged a library of intriguing holiday reads.. They also had an excellent collection of CDs and DVDs if we ran out of things to do, but local music, plays and dance left little time to see much of them. But we know what is there for our next trip.

A most relaxing holiday made easy by Steve Tiltson’s great communications of the apartment and its opportunities. We have been going to Antibes regularly since one of us, in 1966, saw England beat Germany in the final of the world cup on a beech camping holiday near there. This holiday was much more civilised and comfortable. We now feel we have a home away from home.

Well worth a visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you James. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us and all that Antibes and the surrounding area has to offer. It's always nice to hear of our guests using the local transport if and when they do venture out of the town. The trains and buses serve the area well. So much to do and see . . . so little time!

A perfect stay for two

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Steve & Frances’ apartment was just about perfect for us, we were there for a month. We were met by Alan, who looks after things, he couldn’t have been more helpful. He said “if you need anything give me a call, I want you to enjoy your stay” He was as good as his word and when we called about failed wi-fi (a minor matter) came round and fixed it within 20 mins.

The apartment is perfect for two people as far as we were concerned, set at an easy 2 minute stroll between the sea and the old town, immaculately clean, fully equipped with plenty of storage. It is quiet and surprisingly private, the balcony overlooks a block of flats but is sheltered by trees, we had breakfast sitting in the sun every morning. As an added bonus there is a really good small restaurant at the sea end of the Blvd “Bistro 44” great food and particularly good value at lunch time.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much. Alan does a superb job for us, especially when we are not around ourselves. He will appreciate your comments. It is important to us that we have someone who shares our standards and we are delighted that you had such a successful stay. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Nice at 15 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Various starting from at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Nice (to Corsica) at 20 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Biot at 10 Kilometres Nearest Train : Antibes at 0.9 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A8 - Junction 44 at 5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Too many to list starting from at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Plage du Ponteil at 0.5 Kilometres

The apartment is ideally situated in a central position within a ten minute stroll of all the attractions Antibes offers - 3 minutes to the sea; 5 to the old town; 10 to the rail station and port. Juan Les Pins and Cap D'Antibes are just a little further but easily reached on foot or by local buses. Whilst located on a main road, the apartment is to the rear of the property and is untroubled by traffic noise. It has its own off-street parking place. Food shopping needs are all met within a few blocks. Antibes is also a great base from which to use the train to explore the whole of the Riviera coastal strip from Grasse and Cannes to Nice, Monaco and even Italy, although some of our guests never stray from Antibes.
