J’adore l’appartement de Diana ! For three years now during the winter months, I have stayed in Diana’s apartment in Antibes. Would I return if I did not like it? In fact, I have already spoken to her about returning next year.
Most visitors spend their time in Antibes, which is a short walk, maybe 15 minutes, from La Plage de la Salis (the beach) and her apartment to the center of town. However, I recommend also walking the other way to Juan-les-Pins. It is the same distance. There you will find a more expansive beach, more restos along and on the beach, a wonderful café called the Café de la Plage, my favorite cafe spot, where you can wile away the hours looking at the Mediterranean Sea and the sunset, if you go later into the afternoon, of course.
You don’t want to walk anywhere? You want to kick back, read, get a sun tan, and not have to fuss with finding a restaurant. No problem. Her apartment is a half block from the sandy beach. In the same building on the corner and across from the beach is an excellent restaurant with a chef who worked once in a starred restaurant. On another corner is a pizza place. A short walk away (5 minutes) is a pastry and sandwich place and next to it is one of my favorite restaurants in Antibes, Le Romarin. Go to the beach, get a sun tan, take a step or two to the resto, eat a wonderful meal, return to the beach and catch a few more rays. Not bad for a vacation.
My other favorite part of staying in Diana’s apartment, apart from the many, many restaurants in Antibes and Juan-les-Pins, is the public transportation system. It is so easy to take the little navette #14, which stops at the apartment building, to the train station, and then to hop a train to Nice or Monaco or Italy or to go the other direction to Cannes or to Saint Raphael and catch a boat to St Tropez.
I have been comfortable in the apartment. It has a full kitchen, two full balconies, shiny marble floors that are very cool during the hot summers months, wall sized windows that can open to let the breeze blow through the rooms. Diana has done an excellent job of making the apartment a very desirable place to stay on the Riviera.
My husband and I chose Diana's apartment primarily because of her exuberance and honesty. We spent our 38th anniversary in her bright and airy apartment for 6 nights and relished every minute of its proximity to the beach, shops, and restaurants. We enjoyed cooking in her fully equipped kitchen and dining on the delightful front terrace overlooking the water. Charm abounds in her apartment along with all the amenities she provides; the huge flat screen TV, cable (with CNN), DVD/CD, and free WiFi internet connection, music, telephone, and truthfully everything Diana mentions in her apartment's description is available. We anticipate staying in her apartment next year. Our friends did not believe our pictures exactly matched what she put in her description. We did not want to leave.
My husband and I stayed in Diana's apartment in Antibes for a month during September and October. The apartment was very secure and had everything we needed for an extended stay including a well stocked kitchen, large refrigerator, nice linens, very comfortable bed, WiFi, flat screen tv, music CDs, and a washing machine. The location is excellent for seeing all of the sights while having a quiet and spacious place to return to each day. The apartment is right across the street from the beach with a fabulous patisserie a block away. Even in warm weather the apartment was cool with excellent cross ventilation. We could not have been more pleased and loved it so much we are returning again next year! Diana was very helpful in providing us with information from the minute we booked the apartment and was very responsive to any requests we had. We highly recommend this property.
We should have written this before as we just loved Diana's apartment . We have just contacted her as we want to book it for a week in June 2014
Everything was wonderful- the view , the two terrasses, and the spacious aprtment , the bathroom , the beautiful china
We loved the beach being just across the road
It was only a short walk to old town . although the navette 14 was supposed to come , it was unreliable. . Just as well, as we needed the exercise.
This is the only apartment we want to return to - we have booked every year for last 6 years on Cote d' Azur and there was always something wrong .
We had a fabulous vacation! My two children (age 3 and 6) and I travelled to Antibes for the first time. Diana, the owner, was so helpful. She provided us with so many helpful details about transportation, places to eat, what to do, where to go. It made the trip so much easier. On the day of our arrival we were greeted promptly at the apartment, walked through all details and access. Everything was clean, well lit and just lovely. The apartment was fantastic. Perfect location. The beaches, people, food and sights were glorious. Just as Diana had communicated. Thank you!
We really enjoyed our stay in Diana's apartment. Too bad it isn't possible to give more than 5 stars!
The kitchen is well equipped, the bed and sofa-bed are comfortable, the dining room table is huge, and the over-sized sliding glass doors provide for a very nice cross breeze. Our daughter really loved the swimming pool too.
The apartment is a 1/2 block from the beach, and from the main road to old town Antibes. The Marché Provençal is an easy walk (as is the Picasso Museum), and the number 14 bus will take you many other places for just 1 euro per trip. Be sure to take a walk up the Chemin des Calvaire for great views of the area.
We'll be returning to Antibes again, and we will certainly be staying in Diana's apartment.
Other Activities: Picasso Museum, Monte Carlo, Cannes, Nice
Ski: French alps are less than 90 minutes away. The best of both worlds -- hit the slopes during the day and enjoy excellent food, palm trees and riviera night life apres ski!
