A perfect location and place to experience Antibes old town!
Great property. Easy to deal with owner and manager. Thanks!
Location, location, location
This was our first ever visit to Antibes, and our first self catering holiday with our young family, so we had a little anxiety prior to arrival at the apartment "Le Bonheur".
First off - everything practically and administratively went very smoothly. Micaela, the owner, fielded the paperwork and payment efficiently, and Cathy (the local property manager) was friendly, responsive and prompt with everything she did.
The property itself has a nice layout with just enough space for a family of four with young children (aged 5 and 2). It is on the first floor entered by quite a steep flight of stairs, which was fine but needs handled with care.
Everything worked as it should, apart from the double sofa bed in the living room which wouldn't open out completely flat, but this was fine as my wife ended up with the kids most nights. The air conditioning was superb and was very much needed as we had daily temps of 37 degrees, even early evening it was still around 34. The fridge was also very cold, which isn't often the case in a hot country.
If there was a negative about the apartment it is that it would benefit from some new towels and bed linen - which wouldn't cost much, and maybe a new double sofa bed in the living room. We didn't try the two single sofa beds so cant comment on them.
None of this was at all a major issue however as the price of the property for the week was extremely good value given the area, location, and the fact it was the start of peak holiday season.
Now, onto the location. Wow! In two respects. Antibes itself is just wonderful, the old town in particular. Just a perfect place to wander around, relax, eat and drink. Great for kids as there is a beach and any traffic is minimal and slow.
And the actual location of the flat itself within the old town, has the main morning vegetable and meat market almost literally on its doorstep - this area transforms into a series of open air restaurants in the evening, so you can eat and drink in a variety of places within 1 minute walk of the property. The area where the apartment is couldn't really be bettered as an area to stay in in old Antibes.
I'd say the nearest sandy beach was 250m away by foot.
So the location of the property is its main selling point, and gave a great base from which my family and I completely fell for the wonderful Antibes.
Great location in Antibes!
The apartment is located in the old town, steps from the daily open air market and many shops and restaurants. There is a washing machine, nice for longer visits.
The kitchen is small, but serviceable for breakfast and small meals.
Cathy, the owner's local rep, was VERY helpful, picking us up at the airport, some light grocery shopping before arrival, etc.
for the price, it is a great value!!
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We really appreciate your feed back and are so glad that our guests get to experience this wonderful time of the year in Antibes and all that surrounds it.
The Cannes Film Festival happening at the moment, stunning beaches to explore from Monoco all the way through to Cannes, the exquisite bouquet shops along the cobbled streets , delicious tapas and wines to taste at the chic and vibrant bars & restaurants. And of course making the most of the convenient location of the apartment, situated next door to the the incredible historical monument, the Picasso Museum, 50m from the ocean & fresh produce market of Antibes.
We hope to see you again in the near future.

Apartment in Antibes
My wife and I rented this apartment for 4 weeks. The apartment is ideally located in the old town of Antibes beside the market and restaurants, which is very convenient. The train station is about a 10 minute walk and Nice airport about 30 minutes by car/taxi. The agent who takes care of the details, Cathy, is an absolute delight- extremely helpful. This is a very pleasant apartment most suitable for 2-3 people ( 2 is better) but can accommodate 4. Joe and Evelyn , Rhode Island, USA
Heaven in the Old Town
Deciding that we would head to Monoco for the 2013 Grand Prix, we wanted to soak up the surrounds of nearby France and see everything and anything that was on offer. Having never visited the south of France we were a little overwhelmed by the language barrier, road systems and trying to find our way around, but on arriving in the beautiful town of Old Town Antibes, our worries faded away quicker than the setting sun. Le Bonheur is drapped over the cobbled streets of the Old Town, to say it's centrally located would be an understatement. Cathy, the local manger went above and beyond the call of duty to help us settle in, helping with our luggage and even our travels plans in anyway she could. The apartment is decorated beautifully and you can tell that much care has been taken to offer up a unique and authentic French experience. The wifi was a blessing as we were constanly planning our daily activities, well not before we hopped down the stairs an into one of the bakeries that serves steaming croissants and fresh coffee. We travelled to nearby towns and of course made it to the Grand Prix without a hitch, all the while reassured in knowing we didnt have miles to travel to get back home. Thank you for such a wonderful stay, we will definitely be visiting this wonderful apartment again, there is simply too much magic in Antibes not to return!
What a lovely experience I had in this delightful apartment in the heart of the Old Quarter! I have been to Antibe twice and both times I stayed in this apartment... and will most definatly go back again! Waking up to watch and listen to the set up of the farmers market in the morning was blissful- no better way to start you day! And a perfect evening consisted of sitting on the window edge eating our freshly made dinner (ingedients from the market in the morning!) watching the wining and dining of the night below us!
The apartment is superbly located with a perfect mixture of one being able to enjoy the quaint quite village but with a dash of vibrancy and fun! A real cultural experince!
The owner, Micaela was so easy to deal with and has gone to a great deal of artistic effort to make the apartment not only extremely comfortable, but also aesthetically pleasing. The rental agent Cathy was friendly and helpful and assisted us with any touring queries we had.
I had everything I needed and more during my stay in the most wonderful Town, in the most beautiful home! So looking forward to my next visit!
I am so pleased that you had a wonderful time in Antibes and the apartment, There is nothing better than getting your fresh ingredients for the day, along with fresh flowers, from the market. Having the beach so close by also gives you another element of holiday feeling.
All the best,
