This charming town house is located on a pedestrianised street, within the medieval walls of old Antibes.
On the ground and first floor, there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
- One bedroom with twin beds and en-suite shower room.
- The other with a double bed and a separate bathroom, with bath.
On the third floor, is the kitchen/living area which is open plan with sofa bed, chairs and coffee table. It also has a dining table and chairs. There is a modern fitted kitchen area with large fridge freezer, oven/microwave and hob. Wooden stairs lead to the fourth floor sun-room and pretty terrace. The perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or meal with views over the roof-tops of old Antibes. There is a table, chairs, parasol and a small barbecue.
Our home has been sympathetically decorated using Provençal fabrics and French fruit wood furniture.
Within strolling distance of this picturesque street are local sandy beaches, the Marché Provençal- a daily bustling food market. The fortified Port Vauban- where luxury yachts and traditional fishing boats jostle for position. The house is perfectly located, close to the abundance of interesting shops, cafés and great restaurants.
Our house is 20 mins by taxi from Nice airport (or a convenient express bus ride). Antibes rail station is 12 mins walk and gives access to the costal rail links, where you can travel to St Tropez, Nice Cannes, Monaco or even across the Itallian boarder for lunch. You can also visit the Medieval hill villages of Grasse - home of international perfume house and museum. St Paul de Vence-a fortified hill top village with the Matisse chapel. Biot - famous for its hand-blown glass.
I live in the UK, but love to spend my holiday time in Antibes, which I have done for the last 30 years.
There is so much happening all year round, as it does not close down in the winter.
My children and grandchildren always enjoy going there, as it is a special place that can be enjoyed by all ages.
Mrs Jane Bottomley purchased this house in 1990
Its it an authentic french home, with period features. The house has a gorgeous sunny roof terrace, within walking distance of all our favour things.
The house is on a pedestrianised street in the old town of Antibes and near to beaches, the harbour, markets and restaurants.
There is a pretty sunny roof terrace with dining area.
Public transport is excellent.
What a beautiful place! It was so convenient for everything we needed and such a pretty location. We immediately felt immersed in the provencal life. Tastefully decorated, with every thing you needed for a great stay. We ate out every night, as the cafes and restaurants we visited were good value and just a walk away. We enjoyed walking round the harbour after meals and stopping off for a little aperitif, before turning in. We recommend Le Brulot restaurant, so friendly and welcoming. The pictures do not do this house justice! We would highly reccommend; a little jem!
