3 bedroom/3 bathroom (sleeps 6) townhouse in old Antibes, sea view roof terrrace
Maison de la Tour is a 17th century town house in the oldest part of Antibes which is also a quiet pedestrian area. It has been fully renovated combining Provençal charm with all modern amenities.
It is the perfect base to explore the Cote d'Azur, just relax and/or prepare wonderful meals throughout the year. This unique and spacious house with its private en-suite bathrooms suits couples or families with children.
This 3 floor town house is situated in a lovely pedestrian area, just behind Porte de l'Orme, one of the ancient city gates in the oldest part of Antibes, a stone throw from the covered Provençal market, the Picasso museum, the harbor, the sea and of course, many excellent local restaurants and shops. The closest public beach is just 2 minutes walk away.
From the exceptional sun kissed roof terrace, you will be able to enjoy a 360 degree view over Vieil Antibes, the sea , the mountains and even Nice and Cap Ferrat. The stylish lounge/dining area, which comfortably sits 6, has wonderful dim-able lighting for the evening and a large parasol to protect you from the sun during the hotter hours of the day. It is the perfect place to have breakfast, dine or just relax after a day on the beach. The large Weber gas barbecue (E320 Classic) allows you to have nice grill parties "with a view".
Maison de la Tour retains many period features like white-washed wooden ceilings and beams, oak doors, terracotta and traditionally painted cement tiles. One of the rooms even has a vaulted ceiling and a working, antique wood burning fire place.
Each of the double bedrooms (chambre des drapeaux has 2 twin beds 90x200, chambre des rames has a brass king-size bed 160x200 and chambre de l'ancre has a brass super king-size bed 180-200) has its own stylish bathroom (2 with large shower cabins and one with a bathtub/shower) with retro, chrome fittings. The finest Egyptian cotton linen and high quality towels, including beach towels, have been chosen for your comfort. Each of them also has a flat screen TV, a DVD player (multi-regional), Apple TV and a subscription to Netflix. Wifi is available throughout the house including the roof terrace.
The large modern living kitchen/dining room is situated on the 3rd floor, just below the roof terrace. It has been equipped with every gadget an amateur chef needs to prepare a perfect meal with local delicacies bought in the nearby Provençal market. It also includes 2 large fridges, one of them a Liebherr with an ice maker to ensure that you can enjoy properly chilled drinks.
I offer a personalised concierge service making your stay in this beautiful place a unique experience.
Please note that we welcome new mums and to this effect have purchased a new crib available in Maison de la Tour.

Why Maison de la tour chose Antibes

What makes this House unique
The many period features combined with all modern amenities will provide you with a unique holiday experience. Personally , when I first saw the house, I fell in love with the roof terrace from which one has a wonderful view over the old town, the sea and the mountains. To me it is a truly amazing place to relax and/or dine.

A very special house
Our return to Maison de la Tour was as perfect as our first visit. Everything, the fixtures and fittings, the bed linen, towels and the outside furniture on the terrace is of the highest quality. Ivan, our host, is superb - his thoughtfulness and attention to detail is second to none, nothing is too much trouble. The beautifully furnished house is like a home from home - we settled back in immediately and can't wait to return next year!
A very special place
My sister and I have now enjoyed 5 wonderful holidays at Maison de la Tour. We love its location in the beautiful old town , where everything you need is just steps away and yet it is quiet.
It is very well furnished, equipped and maintained so is extremely comfortable. We especially love to spend time on the roof terrace enjoying the amazing view of mountains and sea.
Ivan is so welcoming, friendly, considerate and helpful. We can't wait to return...
Beautiful Place with Hidden Problems and a Bad Ending
This is a beautiful place in a great location with 3 bathrooms an a nice kitchen. On the outdoor deck at our first night dinner meal I sat down on a chair and fell back against the guard rail. Later when I took my shower the handle of the valve fell apart into the tub. And the next day my son mentioned his shower in another bathroom would not drain properly. On our last day we received a notice from our travel agency warning us of travel disruptions due to the rail strike. We were forced to leave early and were completely distracted by strike causing cancellations to most trains from Marseille that day. After later communicating with the property owner, he informed us he was charging us 600 euros for the broken chair which my family did not cause. I certainly feel he took advantage of us and warn others he can not be trusted.
Dear Randy, I have been surprised and disappointed by your review. Clearly, despite the fact that all but one of the 51 reviews I have received since I started letting Maison de la tour, have been 5 stars (the other one being 4 stars). I accept that it is not always possible to satisfy all guests despite doing the utmost to achieve that.
What disappointed me most was that you say that I can not be trusted when in fact your comments are factually incorrect. When speaking to your during your stay you seemed to be loving my property and, least but not last, all other guests have held me in the highest regards . You never told me that the chair broke and you fell backwards: you initially denied that a chair had been broken and you subsequent were unable to explain how it had happened. Secondly, you never advised me of any problem with the bathrooms until 2 days after your departure asking you how your stay was. Again, if there had been a problem during your stay, I would have immediately address it there and then. At every checkout I inspect the property thoroughly - by doing this I actually discovered the broken chair (which you have failed to tell me) - and I did not notice any problems with the bathrooms except for a loose screw that I repaired immediately. In fact, the current guests, who have returned to MAISON DE LA TOUR for the 4th year, confirmed that they are ok.
I never charge clients for small breakages, but in case of an expensive item, like this chair made by “Tribu”, which is of the highest quality. The producer assured me that the cause for the damage has been misuse and so I have no option but to do so. Security deposits are there to cover such events and whilst I can somehow understand you are not happy that you have to pay for an item you have broken, I do believe it is not fair of you to vent such anger in your review.
At the end, you will notice that you have not been charged for this expense accepting that I bear the cost (although this is not fair) and yet your review is showing inaccurate information.
With respect to the disruption you experience due to the industrial action I can only apologise on behalf of the French, but I do not think it should affect your review of my property and I do sincerely hope you are not blaming me for it.
Once again, I am terribly sorry for this situation and hope that you can see that I always take my guests safety and well being at heart.
Wonderful townhouse in perfect location
This house is beautiful! You could spend your whole time on the roof deck if there weren’t a million sights to see in the area. There are 5 floors total with the roof deck - so lots of stairs - but lots of space and everything you need for a perfect holiday. Ivan is a wonderful host - always got back to me quickly with any questions - and very helpful when half of our group got delayed checking in by travel mishaps - he made sure family members got checked in and settled. Don’t hesitate to book here! Antibes is a perfect base to explore the area.
Hi Kristen - such a wonderful review! Thank you. It has been a pleasure to welcome you and to ensure that your stressful arrival was smoothed by the tranquility of Antibes and for the comfort of Maison de la tour. As discussed with you, you must come back and enjoy Maison de la tour in the near future! Ivan
Fabulous House in a Fabulous Location
We had a wonderful stay in Maison de la Tour. The location is fantastic, the house is clean and fabulously decorated, the many stairs a well-need "workout" with all the eating and drinking. I can't say enough about what a great place this is. We arrived to meet Hannah, who gave us a rundown of the place and left goodies, as well as grocery requests we made in advance. She had some great restaurant suggestions, as well as tips on the best mode of transportation for various day trips. Thanks, Hannah!
I wish I could rave about the weather, but, February in Antibes may not be the best time of year...
Would love to go back. Highly recommend.
Thanks for having us.
We loved Antibes, Ivan’s place was lovely and a perfect location. You are within walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. We hope to go back soon.
