AZURE: STUNNING, WATERFRONT TOWNHOUSE IN THE RAMPARTS OF OLD ANTIBES

Antibes House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4

Azure is a newly renovated 300 year old townhouse on the waterfront edge of the Ramparts of Old Antibes with spectacular views across the bay to the Cap d'Antibes. Every room in this air conditioned house has a sea view and the terrace has a spectacular vista. The luxurious architect designed interior has been inspired by a contemporary coastal theme with soft pebble inspired tones on the stucco walls. Limestone flooring, slate bathrooms and teak terrace decking combine with luxury Egyptian cotton linens and softened water to ensure that you have a supremely comfortable stay. In a superb location Azure is just 1 minutes walk from the Provençal Market where your gourmet welcome hamper produce is purchased by our local staff.

The Picasso Museum and the nearest sandy beach are also just a few minutes stroll away. There is a wealth of interesting shops, cafés & restaurants in the old town and vibrant port area which may just enough to entice you away from the sun drenched terrace.

Location: Azure is located 20 minutes by taxi from Nice Airport. Airport transfers, daily housekeeping & baby sitting can be arranged with our local staff. Beaches - Plage de la Gravette 5 minutes walk, Plage de Salis 8 minutes walk. The more exclusive private Garoupa and Keller beaches on the Cap d'Antibes are either a 20 mins walk or accessed from the bus station 5 minutes walk away. Inland -Visit the medieval villages located inland such as Biot -famed for its hand blown glass. Grasse - home of the international fragrance houses & the International Perfumery Museum. St.Paul de Vence- beautiful hilltop fortified village & art centre. Tourette sur Loup- a precipitously perched hilltop village. Valbonne- geometrically laid out historic village. Coast - Antibes rail station is ten minutes walk away & gives access to the coastal rail links which allow you to cherry pick your favourite excursion destination - cultural Nice, chic Cannes, Monaco or across the Italian border for lunch.

Events and Activities: Cannes Film Festival is closely followed by the Monaco Grand Prix in May are both easily accessible from Azure.

The July Jazz Festival in Juan les Pins is only minutes away. The terrace at Azure is the ideal venue to watch the dramatic firework display on Bastille day (July 14). The Nice Carnival is a must for February.

Sports and leisure: As a town with a marina at its heart, sailing, yachting, water skiing and wind surfing are all readily available. Golf - with 14 golf courses to choose within a 30 mins drive there is something for all levels. The Mougins ‘Golf and Country Club’ is renowned in France. The course is set in a beautiful landscape with outstanding views. Also of note is the Royal Mougins which has hosted the French Open.

Inland are riding, canoeing and kayaking. For the more adventurous there is also canyoning.

Skiing - Set at the gateway to the Mercantour National Park are two ski resorts - Isola 2000 (with 120 km pistes) set at 2000 metres, it is a purpose built resort. In contrast the traditional alpine village of Auron (130 km pistes) at 1600 metres oozes character. Both are within a one hour drive, and offer excellent facilities including the ESF ski school.

Wonderful and tasteful house!

We were so delighted to have stayed in this beautifull old fishermans house. The location is fantastic, the view in the rooms and the balcony incredible. We have just love it.
The house is bright and very clean. The flowers, the wine, cheese and other things in the basket gave us a feelin of warm welcome. We loved it soo much that we for sure will come back next year.
Thank you for a wonderfull week.

Charming apartment overlooking Antibes

  • 5 of 5
Ann-Marie unlocked the doors and reality proved to be even better than the website. All of our senses were charmed: we could see the Mediterranean and even smell it from the rooftop, we could hear the waves, feel the warm sun on our skin and taste the delicious food from the nearby marché provencal.
The kitchen was excellently equipped so that we enjoyed preparing food and eating it on the terrace overlooking Antibes bay at the end of March! People walking along the rampart were certainly looking at us, envious.
Expect everything to be as announced on the website - well, the flowers and the gourmet welcome gift were definitely a superb add-on.
We would absolutely recommend this apartment to anybody, just the narrow stairs are a hindrance for elderly or disabled people.

Loved this property. The location is ideal. We enjoyed shopping for food at the market and eating on the terrace with the beautiful water view. Also, easy access to many excellent restauants and shops all within walking distance.

Antibes is lovely and Azure offers the best opportunity to enjoy all that the south of France has to offer. All booking arrangement were handled promptly and check in and check out were a breeze. Azure is very well equiped and you will find all you need for a delightful stay.

We did not want to leave and have, in fact, booked a longer stay for next year. Thank you!!!

Very much it was pleasant to us!

  • 5 of 5
Our family - two adults and our daughter of 7 years- had a holiday in Azure 1 week in August 2008. It was remarkable week!
The house is located in center Antibes, near to the provincial market where we did purchases; near are also restaurants, cafe. Up to a beach to go close and very pleasantly. The house very beautiful, especially we liked a terrace - it was very pleasant to be on it in the evening.
Very friendly Housekeeper. We wish to thank for fruit, drinks, tasty products, household chemical goods which we have found out at arrival also. It was very pleasant. We have taken advantage of set of the information which is on printed sources in the house - books, directories, booklets, etc., many thanks for information materials!

Azure is located at the prestigious heart of the Cote d'Azur midway between Nice and Cannes. It is situated on the waterfront in the medieval Ramparts of the Old Town of Antibes. Antibes with its network of ancient interconnecting cobbled streets fans out from the superb marina and old Port Vauban with innumerable cafés, bars, restaurants and shops. The wonderfully colourful Provence Market is just one minutes walk away guaranteeing you the freshest local produce. The Picasso Museum with it is superb Contemporary Art collection is also only a minute stroll away. The nearest beach is only 300 metres from Azure. Further afield, if the historic hilltop villages of St.Paul de Vence, Biot and Tourettes sur Loup fail to entice you then the cosmopolitan centres of Cannes, with its fashionable Croisette, Nice with its culture and Promenade des Anglais & Monaco certainly will. Within an hours drive the ski resorts of the Southern Alps and the Italian border towns beckon.
