ANTIBES APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious 2 bed apartment. There was 4 of us, but there would be plenty of room for up to a family of 6. The apartment is very clean and the owners have thought of everything, bath towels, hand towels and even 2 beach towels in each bedroom. The apartment is on a pedestrianised street and is very secure and all cafes,shops and outdoor markets are very close by.

We visited Cannes and Nice on the Ligne 200 bus which is only 1.50. The bus station and the train station is only 10 mins walk away. We also visited

Biot village which is a beautiful medieval hilltop village. Also, Eze is well worth a visit, again a Medieval village perched on a hilltop.

We highly recommend this apartment and will definitely return.

It was lovely - beautiful town, clean well located apartment and great shops

  • 5 of 5

It was just as described - very well laid out and clean.It also felt very safe and although close to all the shops, bars and restaurants it was very quiet.The kitchen was well equipped and great for cooking the fabulous local produce available.The owners were so helpful - the holiday was very relaxing due to all the information available concerning local amenities and transport.

Plage de gravette is so near and you can spend hours there swimming in the warm sea.It is very safe for children too.The flat is also a good base to explore - we had a fun journey to Monaco and Saint Juan Cap Ferrat.Highly recommend this flat and this area.

Quiet, cozy stay

  • 4 of 5

Myself, hubby & 18 year old daughter spent a week in this apartment. It is exactly as pictured. All my contact with the owner was quick and easy, so was reserving it. We were sent the check in information prior to arrival and it went smoothly. Our deposit was refunded promptly, about a week after our stay.

We found the apartment easily, using Google maps. It's a quick 10 minute walk from the Antibes train station, even with our luggage. All the instructions were clear and accurate.

The apartment is simple, not much in the way of decor. The tall, old windows and tomette tile floors are pretty neat. The apartment itself is very roomy. The bed in the master was a bit too hard for hubby and I. Daughter said her bed was fine.

The kitchen had all the basics, and we shopped the markets and prepared our own meals a few times. There is a coffee press instead of a coffee maker.

We used the washer and the clothes drying racks and were glad for it.

As some of the other reviewers have said, although the portable A/C does cool the living area very well, it doesn't really reach the bedrooms. We used the ceiling fans and a portable fan and it was okay.

We never tried the TV so can't comment on it.

The wi-fi worked fine.

Lots of beach things provided, like chairs, umbrella, toys.

The old town is all around you, so there is lots to do and see, many places to eat, shop, etc right around the corner. We walked around a lot and always felt safe, day or night. It really is a good location. At the end of the evening, it was very nice to come back to a place so quiet and peaceful.

Fantastic 2 bed holiday home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful family holiday here in August 2016.

The owners were friendly and informative. The apartment is well located in a quiet street close to the bustle of the Old Town.

Easy to access from Nice airport by bus being a shortish walk from the station.

We all loved our stay and cannot wait to return.

Affordable, spacious, character property in Old Town

  • 5 of 5

Our family's experience of renting this property was a very good one. The owners were highly responsive and really professional in their dealings, and a small glitch, something beyond their control, was dealt with speedily and generously.

The apartment is really central to everything in Antibes, whilst the street itself is really very quiet with traffic blocked off largely, and attractive, especially in the evenings with the old-style lanterns hanging over it, and the magnificent restored chapel.

The train station took us 10 mins to walk to, the Gravette beach 7 mins, the bus station 5 mins and the supermarkets 3 mins. Of course there are dozens of great places to eat out, some quite cheap. We were regulars at Key West near the beach. There are so many places that you don't have to queue like you do in Nice Old Town.

We found the apartment great for us, with high ceilings and ceiling fans that coped mostly adequately with some very hot nights. There is a really efficient free-standing air conditioner in the lounge, so it's possible to quickly cool the place down.

There is a full kitchen, (full cooking facilities, full size fridge and freezer) unlike some apartments, so you don't feel like you are 'camping'.

The rest of the apartment is well laid out, spacious and well resourced. There are some board games, DVDs etc and cable TV.

The bathroom has a decent shower with unlimited hot water sited over the bath.

Overall, we wanted a comfortable property with character and affordable for a family, and we found it and will be booking again. Thank you to Mark and Caroline.

Great large style apt in the old town of Antibes

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults and 2 children) have stayed in the old town of Antibes for 14 years now and this is a very nice spacious airy large apartment which is very well positioned in the heart of Antibes on a quiet street.

It was very clean and had all the facilities that we required for our 15 night stay.

Shops, pubs, beaches, bus station, train station all within a very short walk of the apartment.

We have already recommended this to friends.

Thanks Mark and Caroline.
