Magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

I searched for homes to rent for MONTHS until I found this home. The owner, Daniel, is VERY responsive and helpful. We just returned to the US today and I miss this house!

We are a family of 5---4 large guys aging from 16-23 along with my husband and me. All the guys are 6'3" and up--so we needed space. This home fit the bill perfectly. We had plenty of room and facilities. I visited the market each day for fruit, baguettes, croissants etc...It is less than 100 steps from the door of the home. Even though our train arrived late, Svetlana met us at the door with a nice bottle of wine and some bananas--Merci beaucoup!! Due to our late arrival, we did take a taxi to the house from the SNCF station---it was about 25euros for the trip. Be sure to grab a map of town at the Tourist Office (across the street from the train station)--that helped us a lot as well.

The AC worked great--all appliances that we used were functional and well-kept. A HUGE thank you to the previous guest who left a beach umbrella and goggles for use! That was great. Previous guests must have left beach towels as well, which was nice since ours were too wet at times.

The Wifi connection was good as well.

Overall--we had a wonderful trip and would stay here again for sure!

Thank you to Daniel, Arnaud (realtor office/manager), Svetlana and Arnaud's dad who spoke with us once--their office is RIGHT around the corner if you have any questions..

This was our first Homeaway rental and it was an OUTSTANDING experience. I would not hesitate to use this home and Homeaway site again.

Thank you so much Daniel!

Beautiful apartment in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with this beautiful house on the ramparts in Antibes... house immaculately clean and well equipped to high standard with beautiful decor, but a very homely place with an understated touch of class! Ease of booking with any queries quickly responded by Mr Kent although we had no issues whilst there ! Central to the gorgeous beaches and market with lots of restaurants to choose from. Can't wait for our next visit!!highly recommended!

An absolute gem in the heart of old Antibes

  • 5 of 5

The situation and interior of this glorious old house was overwhelmingly beautiful. Set back from the main bustling daily market in old Antibes, the house overlooks the sea and Cap d'Antibes. We were absolutely delighted with the interior of the house which has been so tastefully and sensitively renovated maintaining the wonderful character of the property but bringing it straight to the 21st century with every modern convenience. The property was spotlessly clean and extremely well maintained and the sumptuous bed linen and beautiful bedrooms made our stay even more relaxing.

We loved the fact that the property is so central that wonderful beaches are just a short walk away (with their magnificent views of the Maritime Alps rising up in the distance) as is the bustling Port and beautiful old town with its quaint and artisan shops. There are of course some delicious restaurants, namely Les Vieux Murs, 50 meters away and for those who feel like something extra special the Michelin Star Le Figuier de St-Esprit restaurant just around the corner. Of course there are many other cosy bistros and pizzerias as well as the Place National square which is taken over by outdoor eating.

I would not hesitate to highly recommend this beautiful property, fully equipped with all mod cons. Mr and Mrs Kent provided excellent service and were more than happy to answer any queries we had about the surrounding area. They clearly love this property and place and we felt that they wanted us to love it as much as they do. We absolutely did and have just booked for next year!!

Great accommodation in just the right place!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked through the door into the cool air of the house we felt at home. Every need was catered for in great style and comfort. Fantastic restaurants and food market just a few steps away from the house that sits in a perfect position with views of the sea but away from the crowds.

Antibes is a first class resort in the right position to explore the coastline and mountain villages. Trains and buses are easy to use and great fun too.

Discover this great part of France and all the things it has to offer. 7 of us did and can't wait to return.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful house for the Easter break 2017. Firstly, the house itself is immaculate - everything is of such high quality! The beds are super comfortable and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly want and more. The location could not be more perfect as everything is walking distance. We were lucky to have some lovely sunshine and spent a good few hours on the little terrace which gets the sun nearly all day!. It is the ideal place to stay when you want to explore the coast as the train station and bus garage are just a 10 minute walk away but Antibes itself is a lovely place with amazing little restaurants and bars and some beautiful shops. We definitely recommend this house and hope to return again in the near future.

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.
