About Alisa Gallgher-Pugh

This is us with Grandma enjoying the beach in Antibes. Although we grew up in London we visited France frequently as a family. I share the house with my sister Stephanie.

Alisa Gallgher-Pugh purchased this house in 1998

Why Alisa Gallgher-Pugh chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

This house belonged to our father who loved France and everything French. He particularly loved the old town and this house has charm and character of a typical French town house in the 'vieille ville'.

What makes this house unique

Everyone says the climb to the top is worth it. Relax and have a glass of wine on the roof terrace and enjoy the views. We love watching the super yachts during the summer and the sun sets can be pretty amazing too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Alisa,

We had a great week at your lovely town house!

All facilities in your house worked very well, and it was also perfect for our two teenage boys with wi-fi, and aircon in their own bedroom. We can highly recommend your house!

Quirky town house in a superb location at the heart of the Old Town

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just spent 4 nights at this delightful house and the perfect location for exploring Antibes and its surroundings. The property is clean, comfortable and has everything that you could wish for during a stay. The layout of the house is great with the living areas upstairs providing the views over the old town and the sleeping areas in the cooler lower part of the house. The roof terrace is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine or cold beer while watching some of the world's largest mega-yachts cruise the local waters of the Med.

There are many local restaurants in old town Antibes and no shortage of places to drink. The daily covered market is almost on the doorstep for those who prefer to buy fresh and eat in.

Public transport is very accessible and reasonably priced. We took a bus along the Cap d'Antibes one day and a train to Monaco another day. All in all Antibes is a great centre for exploring this part of the world.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. Despite the stairs, it's worth a climb, and it's a lovely place to relax. Getting the local trains and buses is a fantastic way to discover the local surroundings- there's really no need for a car! I hope to welcome you back again. A G-P

Great location to enjoy beaches and charm of Antibes

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in Antibes. The townhouse was in an ideal location and within walking distance to both beaches, restaurants and shopping. The townhouse layout provided ample space for our family of 4 including our 10 and 12 year old daughters. The stairs are steep and will need to be used frequently so the townhouse is not suitable for guests with impaired mobility. The linens were adequate including beach towels and of good quality. We appreciated the use of the beach umbrella as it was hot and sunny during our beachtime. The apartment was clean. The kitchen was adequately stocked to allow us to cook some of our meals at the house. A few more plastic rather than the metal utensils such as spatulas would be helpful to use with the good quality nonstick skillets to maintain the integrity of the nonstick surface. The dishwasher is not mounted and this causes the racks to tip during loading. The owner is aware of this and hasn't been able to find a solution to this issue but the dishwasher worked fine. The wifi worked well and had good strength. There were some board games that we enjoyed playing. Our host, Sabrina, was very helpful orienting us to the house and giving suggestions for restaurants and local sights. If our travels ever take us back to Antibes we would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I will look into a few more plastic utensils as that's a good idea as the pans are mostly non-stick. The dishwasher does have a little lilt-and I'll see what our handyman can come up with; but works fine as you say. I'm glad you had fun at the house and exploring Antibes. We would love to have you back again in the future. A G-P

The perfect townhouse and location for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent Easter here, and the location was perfect for our family of four. The weather was divine and we had a blissful time!

Thank you for the lovely welcome and the helpful information that you provide - all our questions were answered in 'the black folder', which makes for an easy holiday!

Easy walking to the morning market, the harbour, the square and most importantly, our favourite boulangerie! We loved being amidst Old Antibes, and wandering the back streets. Not to mention being a stones throw from Musee Picasso...

The townhouse is equipped with all you need, and we were super-comfy. We reluctantly had to leave... well before we were ready to, and now wonder how quickly we can return!

A gem of a place - quaint and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay - quirky, characterful and really charming. We loved being so close to everything and walked everywhere. We ate great meals at home and right on our door step - there's so much choice! We really enjoyed the feel of the house and it's relaxed-ness - owner was really helplful and great communication all round. Will definitely be booking in again. Thanks so much!

Fabulous house - fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Right in the heart of the old, walled city of Antibes, the house is ideally located for exploring the city and trying out the restaurants and bars. The facilities in the house are excellent, with two bathrooms and a large lounge area. We also took a number of walks from the house right round the Cap d'Antibes to Juin les Pins and on to Antibes. We had a brilliant stay.

Perfect house, perfect location.....

  • 5 of 5

Ahhh Antibes... So good to be back. The sun was shining and the house is located perfectly for all kind of outings. The lovely Picasso museum and the market are barely a 5 minute walk

I love walking around the Cap d'Antibes when the sun was setting it was amazing ...and so quiet. The market was as colourful and friendly as ever. We had some fresh oysters delivered to our table in a little restaurant next to the market on Sundayaccompanied by some crisp local rose...delicious! It was very funny when staff and quests started dancing....

Monaco is worth a trip and very easy to get to by train which stops right next to the harbour. We had some fab lunch on the rock near the palace in one of those narrow streets.

We also did some "home cooking" in the very well equipped kitchen and will all the fresh local vegs all tasted much better then at home. Breakfast and late night dancing on the lovely roof terrace .... Beds very comfi and new towels very nice.

Bus or taxi to the airport very easy..

Antibes is nice in every season, I could very easily live in Antibes....

I will definitely be back!
