About the property

3 Bedroom, In Between The Sea And The Provincial Market

The house is situated in the oldest part of Antibes old town between the Remparts and the Provencal market and less than one minute walk to either. This historic and very quiet pedestrian street is steps from the Cathedral, the Mussee Picasso, cafes and bars. Nearby restaurants range from small bistros to those with a Michelin star rating. The yacht harbour and beach are a three minute walk.

The house is a traditional seaside town house with French doors and Juliet balconies on the first and second floors. The foundations date back many centuries while the house itself is probably 150 years old. As you stand on the cobbled street near the entrance to the house the Mediterranean is a mere 30 metres away framed by traditional stone buildings. The view just gets better as you climb the steps to the dining area and then finally rewarded again by the magnificent panoramic sea view over terracotta tiles from the roof top terrace.

On top of the cave with laundry, ground, 1st, and 2nd floor each have a sleeping room with respectively a sofa bed (140x200), a bunk bed (2x90x200), and a sofa bed (140x200). 3rd floor include the kitchen with dining space and stairs to the roof top terrace. All rooms are walk-through to get access to the other floors. Bath (shower and sink) is at the ground floor while toilet is at the 2nd floor. During night, both 1st and 2nd floor can access toilet without entering the other room.

The kitchen includes dishwasher, oven, ceramic plates, and a dining table that may fit up to 6 persons and sliding glass doors to the balcony with stairs to the roof top terrace. The terrace includes lounge furniture for two to lie down or 6 to sit.

The house is newly renovated with respect for its Provincial style and decorated with new furniture. The kitchen is brand new and include high quality oven and ceramic plates. Air-conditioning and heating has been installed in 2013.

The house easily sleeps 6 persons. The dining area is not suitable for 6 grown-ups, this will be tight, but is suitable for our family of two adults, two teenagers, and two children. The house does sleep 6 adults, but is best suited for up to 4 adults and two kids. Kids should be non-mobile infants or so old that they can handle the stairs. Stairs are a major part of the house.

5 Floor 'Maison Village' With Panoramic Sea-View Rooftop Terrace
average rating of 4.0 based on 6 reviews

Fantastic location and terrace

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful holiday with our two boys of 6 and 8 in this house in Antibes located in a quiet narrow street connecting the market place to the coast.

The most fantastic part of this funny narrow tall old house is the terrace at the top. Once up there, you may enjoy a 360 degree view of the the close by coastline and the mountains far away.

Climb the stairs and enjoy.

Fantastic location and terrace

  • 4 of 5

My family including my two boys of 6 and 8 just had a wonderful holiday in Antibes. The house is located in the busiest part of town, but in a quite narrow side street connecting the market place to coast.

The most fantastic thing about this old funny narrow and tall house is the terrace. One of the highest placed terraces in the old town with a 360 degree view of the mountains and the close by coastline.

Climb the stairs and enjoy the view!

Smal, charming house in the midst of old Antibes

  • 4 of 5

We came to a small, but charming cityhouse in the very middle of Antibes. You can hardly find a better place in Antibes, 50 m. from the Picasso museum and the market and still quiet, considering you are in the midst of a very touristy town.

The house has 4 floors and a roof-terrasse.

As it is a narrow house, there are only one room and a stair at each floor. It contained what we needed for a good holiday: airconditioning, tv, internet and on the 4. floor a kitchen, simple, but new and functional.

The roof-terrasse on the 5. floor is unique. Small, but with a 360 degree view around the sea and the whole of Antibes. It must be the highest point in Antibes!

The house is a little old-fashioned, but clean and nice. Scandinavian furnitures. A lot of stairs, but you get use to it quickly.

Because of the stairs, the house may not be suitable for very small children, old people or disabled persons, but for a couple or a family with up to 4 children it is perfect - a nice house in the middle of one of the most beautiful towns in south of France, and at a reasonable price.

We didn't hired a car in Nice airport for the stay, and never missed one. It is easy to go to Cannes, Nice and other places along the coast either by bus or train. In Antibes a car is not needed. Beach, harbour, restaurants, affairs, everything is just around the corner.

Would we like to come to the house another time? Certainly.

Very charming house in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation in this charming old house in the very center of old Antibes, close to beach, harbour, market, plenty of restaurants, shops etc. The house fully lived up to our expectations. We would love to come back!

Belle situation mais confort rudimentaire

  • 1 of 5

Cette location est très bien située : au coeur du vieil Antibes, à deux pas du marché provençal et du musée picasso, à deux pas de la mer. Tous les commerces sont accessibles à pieds, plein de restaurants à 30 secondes a pieds. La terrasse offre une belle vue mais sa taille fait plutot penser à un balcon. Ce sont là les deux seuls points positifs de cette location. L'ensemble de la maison est assez vieux et impose une rénovation complète : murs pourris, peintures défraichies, électricité bricolée, plomberie fuyante, simple vitrage sans aucune isolation phonique dans un quartier très animé (avec une petite rue sans circulation mais avec pas mal de passages de nuit). Les escaliers, nombreux, sont assez dangereux : notre fille de trois ans a fait une belle chute, heureusement sans gravité. Les chambres ne sont pas vraiment des chambres mais des étages : si vous désirez manger au milieu de la nuit, vous devrez traversé les deux étages avant d'accéder à la cuisine, sans micro onde et au confort spartiate. Je ne recommande pas cette location. Un détail : les gérants ne parlent pas français et sont domiciliés aux pays bas...

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, We are sorry that you did not have 3 good days of vacation, indeed starting slightly chaotic with a French air strike. As we do describe in the web advertisement, you should not rent this house if your kids (or parents) cannot handle the stairs. A house in 5 floors do contain several stairs. Our own son of 4 handles them gracefully. Anther guest with babies not yet mobile have also enjoyed the house. In between it is up to parents judgment. A number of wrong facts in your review: All electricity and plumbing were checked and modified by professionals in 2013 (were also air-conditioning and heating was professionally installed), the house was re-painted in 2013, a new kitchen was installed in 2013, we are not from the Netherlands, but from Denmark, and we do understand French, but prefer to communicate in English (or Danish). Hope the best for your future holidays Tanja and Mads
