My partner and I love France and especially Paris and the south of France. I am a lecturer in further education, and my partner is an information security consultant.

We enjoy french food and wine and have French nieces and nephews!

We also love to travel and visit new or favourite places in France, and always feel excited for prospective guests when they apply looking to stay in Antibes as it is a wonderful location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice stay in your flat. Everything was as you had described it, and everything worked...Nicole was very helpful, and full of useful tips and information. The flat was ideal for us, and we particularly enjoyed the local bakery, which is as good, if not better, than any in the old town. JM Norway (October 2014)



I just wanted to say a big thank you for renting your lovely apartment to us. We had a super time and would love to return some day. Nicole was very pleasant and helpful. SH Northampton (August 2014)

Spacious and well appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

A heartfelt thank you to Deepa for all the care and attention that has so obviously been put into this lovely apartment. It is probably one of the best holiday houses we have ever rented, and we have rented a few. We had a fantastic week and Nicole, the housekeeper, was very helpful.

The centre of old town Antibes itself is very close by and we felt the smaller, more enclosed beach (which is nearer) was probably the best of the three we encountered.

Speedos are compulsory at the Olympic sized municipal swimming pool at the end of the road, so be prepared. (We weren't, and had to borrow a pair. I'm sure they gave me the smallest they could find...)

Eating out is a bit hit and miss; Mister Pizza around the corner is good and not too expensive. We found a lot of very average places charging very high prices in the town.

Possibly the best times we had were at the apartment itself. There are two balconies for sunlovers, a decent DVD library (in English) and space to spread out and relax, eating food from the nearby supermarket and boulangerie.

All in all, a very enjoyable holiday. Recommended.

Relaxing stay in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely couple of weeks. The flat is spacious and comfortable and the owners are really friendly and helpful. Handy for town and beach, and just around the corner from the bus and train station, which makes it for easy day trips without the need for a hire car. Also means getting to and from Nice airport is very convenient. There's a great little bakery a couple of minutes away, perfect for breakfast pastries!

Half Term Break

  • 4 of 5

Although late in the year for a seaside holiday the weather was fair and the sea had not yet cooled down on the Cote d'azur. The apartment was clean, well equiped and ample for a family of 6 with a delightful, pine clad children's bedroom that my daughters loved. We were within walking distance of the nearest beaches but the beauty of the location is it's access to all of the Cote d'azure so we were so weach day we had a different town and beach to explore includingh a day in Italy. i would striongly recommend this apartment for anyone who is interested in visiting the area.

Less than 5 mins walk from the station, this apartment was perfect for seeing as much as possible of the area. Visited Nice, Monaco and Cannes by train and just jumped on a bus to Juan Les Pins. Mr Pizza at the end of the road makes it impossible to starve. Apartment itself is very well furnished and equipped with everything you could want. Went with 2 girlfriends and I got the kids room/ships cabin. LOVED IT! Owners very helpful with local tips and info and Nicole was lovely.

Would be only too happy to recommend to friends & family and would use again as I love the area.

Location

From the Owner

We chose to buy an apartment in Antibes as it is on the Cote D'Azur in the South of France. The weather is lovely all year, it's very easy to get to with Nice airport nearby and a train station a few minutes from the apartment. Beautiful Provence is up the road and the back country offers endless walking/driving tours with national parks and natural gorges, mountains and lakes. There are many quaint medieval villages with culinary delights to explore. We wanted a place that was quick to travel to and also in a complex where mainly French families live, and lovely communal grounds.
