Great place to stay in Antibes!
Submitted: September 9, 2011
Stayed: August 2011
Our family of five (elderly couple plus 3 (almost) grown-up children) enjoyed our one-week stay at Waltraud and Rolf's beautiful apartment very, very much. It was perfectly equipped with everything you can dream of - not only the obvious things (crockery, cutlery, bedlinen etc.), but also beach towels, washing powder, scales, umbrellas, board games, a library full of books and a welcome bottle of wine and softdrinks in the fridge...simply great!). It was also perfectly clean and we were very happy about the good windows and the airconditioning! We slept perfectly every night! All the electrical stuff worked (especially WLAN!) and the bathrooms were excellent (not always the case in southern Europe..). The apartment is located in the city centre of Antibes, next door to a beautiful square and the tourist office, just 5 minutes from 2 supermarkets and one minute from the next baker's shop (very friendly staff and excellent products). We loved the tiny beach de la Gravette in Old Antibes - it was peaceful and not too crowded. Good water quality and a sandy beach (mostly) with showers, toilets and a snack wagon. In the pedestrian zone but also in the streets off the beaten track there are beautiful shops tempting you to spend your money. The Marché Provencal is a must, too. The city is very lively and crowded at times, but I would never swap it for Cannes or Nice! It is a very cosy, almost intimate place and in the evening there are many places where you can enjoy a typical French dinner at a reasonable price. The best thing was perhaps that you really do not need a car to get around. There are perfect public transport connections to almost every spot of interest on the Côte d'Azur and you pay a flat rate of 1 Euro irrespective of how far you travel. The buses are modern and air-conditioned and most of them stop right in front of Waltraud and Rolf's apartment. You can imagine that we would love to be back soon!
