Spacious and Well-Appointed Townhouse in the heart of Antibes



Updated: 23-Oct-2016
Old World Charm with a Modern Flair

Maison du Bateau offers the charm of a home set within the ancient ramparts of Antibes combined with all modern conveniences.

Bright and airy, Maison du Bateau is located on the picturesque cobbled-stoned Rue du Bateau--a short stroll from the Picasso Museum, a traditional Provençal market, and azure-blue beaches. Our home provides an ideal setting for a relaxing week on the French Rivera. No driving needed to enjoy all of the restaurants, cafes and leisure activities in and around Antibes.

The two-story townhouse has been meticulously restored. We have endeavored to maintain the charms of the original home while adding a modern flair. Our well-appointed chef's kitchen provides the perfect setting to prepare a family-style Provencal meal. For a restful holiday, our beds are equipped with comfy mattresses, crisp, white linens, and plush pillows.

We provide WiFi, cable TV, free local calls, bath and beach towels, and a welcome basket.

We are located 20 minutes from the Nice Cote d'Azur Airport.

Perfect combination of style...location and comfort for your time in Antibes.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week in Maison du Bateau. Booked very far in advance with Antibes-Rental as their properties are very popular. All communications were replied to promptly and booking process very easy. Advance detailed info was very much appreciated including restaurants in case you want to pre-book. Their recommendations were very good. This stylish two level townhome has a perfect location in the heart of the old town of Antibes and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in the city. The famous Marche Provencal is just 1/2 block away and it is the best place for shopping. We did lunch in the townhouse...all fresh from the market. We did not even begin to use all the gadgets in the kitchen...it was stocked with everything you could need as was the entire townhouse. If you have mobility issues probably not your spot as bedrooms are upstairs. There is no apt. on top and it was very quiet. There are other apt that share a courtyard. They were all very respectful of each other. The townhouse does have a small table outside but it was hot and we mostly stayed inside when home. The a/c is modern and central...none of those antique units you often find in rentals. Suzanne was the greeter and very helpful in both check in and check out ...we really had no issues so did not need to contact her. I really searched to find just the right spot in Antibes and this was it. Antibes itself also is small enough (especially in the old town) to feel comfortable but so easy to visit other spots on the coast or inland. I highly recommend Antibes-Rental and this townhouse and hope to return.

My wife and daughter found this wonderful place online, and when I walked in I could hardly believe my eyes: not only is the house located in the best, most centrally located part of the old town of Antibes, but it's also perfectly quiet even with the windows wide open at night (which is how we like to sleep). The house itself is a work of art: tastefully and lovingly furnished and decorated, well-appointed and yes...one might even say luxurious (but in a non-ostentatious way). To put it simply: I cannot think of a better place to stay than here if you have a week or two to explore the many wonders in this corner of the world where countless amazing sights await the curious traveler within only a short walking or driving distance of this most special home. Kudos to Tom and Paul who have done a terrific job of restoring this property to its glory days!! We will hold special memories of 14 Rue du Bateau for as long as we live...

We recently stayed at Maison du Bateau, friends had recommended a holiday in Antibes and also Antibes Rental. We were not disappointed. The location of Maison du Bateau provided easy access to the farmers market and many wonderful restaurants. It was a easy walk to the railway station making it easy to travel to other tourist spots. We loved the experience of staying in the old village.

The accommodation was excellent, the owners have thought of everything. We loved the place as soon as we walked inside, the property is both stylish and beautify appointed and with its superb location we felt at home immediately. We will have no hesitation in recommending this property to any of our friends or family. We look forward to staying there again.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Maison du Bateau is simply ideal in every way for a stay in Antibes. The apartment exceeds ones expectations in its location, cleanliness, aesthetics, and charm. The owners have great talent in decorating, use of fine linens, tasteful toiletries, etc. Dishes, serving pieces, wine glasses, flatware and every kitchen device imaginable are thoughtfully selected.

One could not ask for a better location. The old sea wall and the med are steps away in one direction, while the ancient Provencal Marche await in the opposite direction. The street is quiet and full of personality at the same time.

Maison du Bateau is simply a true gem.

Five stars; comfortable, classy & well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

What a superb property which lived up to all of the stellar previous reviews that other visitors had kindly provided. The location is excellent; peaceful and quaint with 50 meters in one direction to the sea and in the other direction to the Marche Provencal. Super well equipped; the best that we have ever stayed at. The furnishings are tastefully classy and the place was super comfortable. The courtyard was a welcome haven to benefit from the good weather, and I love shutters so those were an added benefit (so French!). Suzanne was a super host and the owners have a true gem on their hands. Five stars all around!

Fabulous Maison du Bateau

  • 5 of 5

Maison du Bateau is superb and more spacious than it appears online. It is beautifully maintained and contains everything you need for an enjoyable stay. It's excellent location in the old town means that you are close to many fantastic restaurants, the wonderful market and coastal walks. The owners and their manager Suzanne could not have been more helpful, and we shall certainly be returning. We recommend Maison du Bateau without reservation.

From the Owner

Antibes-rental.com focuses on the medieval village of Antibes for our holiday rental properties as the town has maintained its historic character with charming cobbled-stone streets. Antibes also has beautiful beaches, a famous Provencal farmers market, and fantastic restaurants and cafes. The village is conveniently located 20 minutes from Nice International Airport (Cote d'Azur Airport) and has convenient train access to points throughout the region. Guests do not need a car to enjoy an amazing holiday.

Set on one of the most picturesque streets of vieux Antibes between the Musée Picasso and the Marché Provençal, Maison du Bateau provides the perfect setting to enjoy the quaint cobbled streets, casual cafés and glamorous beaches of the French Rivera.

Plage de la Gravette is located five minutes from the house. This small beach is great for families with young children as it is very safe (sheltered from waves by a small breakwater). Antibes also boasts several private beaches with casual restaurants and beach seating available. Visitors should also explore the larger beaches at Juan Les Pins, on the opposite side of the Cap d'Antibes, as well as its many restaurants and specialty shops.

Maison du Bateau is located steps away from the daily Provencal market. Rosé wines, olives, lavender, seafood, goat cheese and Cavaillon melons are among some of the regional specialties on offer.

Visitors should also check out the cathedral and the old ramparts of Antibes. The town has several museums, the best of which are the Picasso Museum and the Peynet Museum.
