Truly a home away from home....

  • 5 of 5

You start having a wonderful time the minute you arrive ! Lovely balcony with table and chairs and umbrella ... which the neighbors walk through but no hassle. You walk through the front door and it is wow.... Beautifully furnished and has everything you need. Kitchen, lounge and dining area on the ground floor ... Magnificent stove .... Dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer. Up one flight are 2 bedrooms ...all comfortable and they share 1 bathroom with bath and shower and toilet all in one. The master bedroom is on the 2nd floor and it is huge with lovely views over the bay. and walkin shower ... Fabulous. There is a separate toilet up a little step. The apartment is really centrally located close to the rampart, fresh market (buy your meat here ), shops everywhere and plenty if restaurants! There is a Carrefour city close .... just ask for directions. It is a bit of a walk from the station with luggage but can easily be done just take it slow. A car is not really necessary we did not have one. The express airport bus can be caught just above the railway station Euro11,50 ... There is a lift for baggage ... In fact you can catch all buses at this huge bus terminal ... People are friendly just ask for help and directions. I would highly recommend this apartment ... You will have a holiday to remember.... Bus to anywhere on the coast is Euro1,50! Train Euro 4,50 ... Antibes is a wonderful city to explore the French Riviera from.

Beautiful updated home with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 and the three bedrooms accommodated everyone in comfort. Location is perfect near the market and the water and an easy walk to the center of Antibes. Arnaud was waiting for us at the front door and was easily accessible and assisted with our transportation back to the airport in Nice. The house was beautiful and fully equipped. Two nights we bought food, cooked dinner, relaxed and enjoyed being part of this fabulous setting.

A SUBLIME Antibes holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Old Antibes is a pretty special place but our stay was made PERFECT by this absolutely beautiful house. Every detail... the stunning decor, incredible level of comfort and the incomparable location made this a holiday we will never forget. Each morning, we walked less than a minute to the market - this alone would have made our trip amazing... but to be able to walk on the ramparts, stroll along the yacht harbor and go to the beach and visit the Picasso museum just 2 or three minutes away was a dream come true. We rented a car but you really don't need to as the train station is only a 10 minute walk and you can easily access all the coastal towns from there (although Antibes is by far the most beautiful). Dan and Liz were so on top of our reservation and did everything to make sure were were taken care of by their fantastic property manager, Arnaud. We will return for sure - hopefully many times.

Lovely home in Antibes

  • 5 of 5

Two young senior couples spent a lovely week in this charming home situated close to the sea in Antibes. We had two comfortable bedrooms. The one upstairs had a beautiful view. There was one other bedroom with two other beds which we did not use. Web were greeted with a bottle of wine, fresh strawberries and a few other staples. The house was very clean and inviting .Iwas very well situated with a market a few steps away and many restaurants close by. We could easily get to all the sites on the cote d'azur. Our security deposit was returned immediatly upon vacating.Parking was available a block away but was somewhat difficult to get in and out of .all in all a very satisfying and enjoyable stay.Carolyn and three others

A lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house in a superb location - in the heart of the old town yet on a quiet street with minimal noise disruption. The stairs are steep and there is no handrail but this is more than compensated by the wonderful location and beautiful decor. I would highly recommend this house.

Fabulous, well appointed town house in old Antibes

  • 5 of 5

We rented the town house in old Antibes for 2 weeks in the middle of September 2014. We were a party of six adults. We all found the house to be very well appointed. Very clean when we arrived. The photographs are very true and accurate. The property manager, Arnaud, is right around the corner at the estate agents. He is very helpful and speaks great English - for example, he organised a taxi for us to travel back to Nice airport. The location of the house in old Antibes is perfect - it is down a quiet street so there is very little noise, and it is right around the corner from the Provencal market, Le Zinc wine bar / restaurant, and L'Enoteca, the other wine bar we liked. My only observation, and I am getting "picky" now, was that the house could do with three sets of keys, instead of two, when there are three couples in residence.

We are in the prefect location on the Cote D'Azur only a 20 minute drive to Nice airport and a short trip to Cannes and it's shopping along the Croisette and renowned Film Festival.The House occupies a fantastic location directly on the ancient ramparts of the Old town of Antibes with views across the sea to the Cap D'Antibes.The House is in a unique south facing position on the ramparts being set back on a quiet , pedestrianised street with it's elevated and prominent position giving it the benefit of excellent sunlight to the terrace.The house is less than a minutes walk from the bustling Antibes provencal market and night market which opens daily and a wide choice of restaurants and cafe's are in very close vicinity.The world famous Picasso museum housed in the Chateau Grimaldi is just one street away by foot and Place National is home to the Musee Peynet.Antibes is also famous for it's Port Vauban the true centre for mediterranean yachting which makes this an all year round destination.The port is a 3 minute walk from the house.Close to the port is the imposing mass of the 16th Century Forte Carre visitor attraction where Napoleon was imprisoned.The house is 300 metres to Antibes sandy beaches.Alternatively there are a number of pretty 'perched' villages a short car ride inland such as St Paul de Vence and Mougins with their numerous restaurants and galleries.Monaco and the Italian border is a short train ride from Antibes station and is therefore very accessible for the Formula 1 Grand Prix.In winter both Alps Maritime ski resorts of Isola and Auron are approximately 1.5 hours drive from Antibes making ski-ing accessible.
