About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
The apartment has everything you would need and is extremely well-equipped, spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. This is an absolutely beautiful part of France - so much to see and do. Liz, Banbridge, N. Ireland.
Fantastic! It is very difficult to imagine a better view from the apartment. Beach is within walking distance and all necessary shops and markets are close by. Sergey, St. Petersburg, Russia.
Antibes is beautiful and the apartment was great too. In particular we loved the big terrace with the sea view and spent a few evenings there sipping wine and watching boats and the lights of Fort Carre. Eija, Helsinki, Finland.
Delighted with the apartment - modern, comfortable, spotlessly clean and all the facilities you would hope for. Maria, Ireland.
We enjoyed day trips to St. Tropez, Cannes, Grasse and Monaco, all accessible from the apartment. Hugh, Aberdeen, Scotland.

Lovely apartment, perfect for exploring Antibes
I travelled to Antibes with my 2 children (ages 5 and 8) and couldn’t have had an easier or nicer holiday with them. I was slightly apprehensive about travelling alone with them for the first time but the owner (Sean) was very helpful and gave me lots of information before I went, and their local representative Cyril was equally as helpful. He also offers an airport transfer service which made it door to door.
The apartment is great – it has a lovely balcony which gets the morning sun so you can eat there and plan your day, and the apartment has all the equipment you need – and plenty of cleaning products as well to make it easy to look after. The sofa bed is very comfortable in the living room and there is good enough wi-fi to be able to watch Netflix in the evening, there is also sky tv and a few DVDs. The swimming pool isn’t heated, which didn’t deter my kids, although was a bit cold for me in late May! There were a few people at the pool each time we went but generally it was fairly empty. There is a main pool and also shallow ‘paddling’ end as well which makes it very safe.
Although you are a little way out of Antibes town there is a great supermarket and patisserie less than a 10 min walk away as well as a take away pizza place which is great. In the other direction there is the area of la Fontonne (again about a 10 min walk) which has more shops, a bank and places to eat (as well as tunnel access under the railway to the closest stony beach to the apartment, and the walk along the beach, past Fort Carre and the marinas and in to town) – so there is no problem about being a little bit out of the town and it means the evenings are nice and quiet.
There is a bus (no. 16 Environ bus – timetable online) which costs 1 euro and goes from just outside the apartment in to Antibes – it runs about twice an hour and you need to be outside a bit before the scheduled time to make sure you don’t miss it but it takes you right in to the centre of Antibes where you are then a max 10 min walk to the 2 main beaches.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this apartment or a trip to Antibes, I am pretty sure we will return.
Great apartment in excellent location
We spent a week in this lovely apartment which is like a home from home except more stylish, modern and clean! Antibes is a very pretty town with a lovely old walled town and fantastic harbour. We intended to use the train to get about but the No 200 bus which goes from Nice to Cannes at a maximum cost of €1-50 passed at top if road so we ended up using it to go to Nice and Cannes. One day we got the bus to Golfe Juan and walked back along the beach to Juan les pins and then on to the apartment (approx 4 miles). Lots of lovely restaurants in Antibes but a special mention for Restaurant Wiame (Moroccan) where we had a delicious meal. Would recommend an ebike riviera tour in Nice with the lovely Vincent. We will definitely return to spend some more time on that balcony watching the planes, trains and yachts pass by. Highly recommend the apartment.
Excellent location for a perfect holiday
My wife and I and our 8 year old daughter stayed in this apartment in August 2014.
It was perfect!
Firstly, the apartment itself is clean and comfortable and has everything that you could possibly want. TV, WIFI, fully equipped kitchen, large private balcony with stunning view. The apartment complex has nice gardens and the swimming pool is clean, well managed and quite large.
The apartment is ideally located for a variety of activities and excursions across the Cote D'azur. Bus stops within walking distance have services to Antibes, Cannes, Nice and other destinations and Antibes train station is within easy reach (by bus or 15 minute walk).
There are various shops (mini-market, bakery, pharmacy, fruit and veg, etc.) within walking distance and it is possible to reach larger shops via bus.
We did not hire a car and were still able to get every where we wanted to (Cannes, Nice, Marineland, St Paul de Vence, etc.) by bus.
The local manager for the apartment was extremely helpful when we had any additional requirements.
Our experience was entirely positive and we will definitely use this apartment again.
We have just returned from our third stay in this lovely apartment. The apartment is very clean and quiet and has everything we need to make a relaxing and comfortable holiday. We enjoy eating our meals on the balcony watching the boats heading for the harbour in Antibes. It is good to be able to swim in the pool and although we have never found it very busy, many times we have had the pool to ourselves.
We have found it very easy to manage without a car in this area. The bus from the airport stops about ten minutes walk from the apartment. Buses to Nice and Cannes are quite frequent and only five minutes walk away. Also the local bus to Antibes runs at the rear of the apartment and passes the rail station. Antibes is an ideal base for exploring the area, we have been to Cannes, Monaco, Nice and Menton, as well other places inland and on the coast.
We would thoroughly recommend this lovely apartment and hope to maybe return to it again in the future to enjoy the sunshine and the blue skies we have enjoyed here.
Fantastic apartment to relax in
If you are looking for a clean well furnished apartment near Antibes with great views, this is a gem. My wife and 6 month old baby and I stayed in the apartment in June 2013. The views from the balcony of the sea and of the Alps are beautiful. We found the living area spacious and did the majority of our dining on the balcony watching boats drift past and enjoying the warm breeze of the Riviera. Cleanliness was very important for us with our young son and we were delighted that the apartment was spotless. Likewise the pool area is very clean, private and well maintained. We recommend the stroll to Antibes along the beach, and definitely visit the local markets. We had no difficulty in locating the apartment and found Seán very helpful by providing local knowledge of places to see and things to do. We rented a car which is very useful to explore the area especially the inland villages. We used the local bus a few times and found it convenient. Also, we had a very scenic train ride along the coast past Nice to Monaco.
Overall great apartment in a quiet location, we definitely recommend it.
