On one of the most picturesque walking streets along the Côte d'Azur. I wish I had a Euro for every picture someone has taken a picture of my house. Around the corner is the Cathedral, Musee' Picasso, and Marche' Provençal. Short distances to Nice, Cannes and an hour train to Italy. A perfect location to enjoy the south of France.

About Nancy Mina
Antibes for me is magical....I enjoy all my neighbours who are French, Swiss, and Swedish. The village multi national. As I was an American ex pat in Asia and Europe for 12 years, I find living a European life several times a year a wonderful balance. My little dog Bubba is a jet setter to travelling with me and loves to meet all the other dogs. He makes me walk him several times a day and it is such a beautiful place to be on the sea. It is beautiful 12 months a year.
Nancy Mina purchased this House in 2006
Why Nancy Mina chose Antibes
There are very few houses (not apartments) with direct view of the sea. It is in the middle of old village so there is no need for a car and with a private entrance, I found peace and serenity. A big plus is that it is such a short distance from the airport after a long haul flight!
What makes this House unique
The house is in the center and on sea so views of regattas, sunrises, full moons, yachts and the alps. 200 meters to restaurants, Marche Provencale, museums... Unique in antibes is that there are only 15 properties with sea views in this location on the remparts...
Excellent - what a great spot
We loved starting at this house. Right in the middle of old Antibes but looking out over the water it was perfect. We could walk to the market, restaurants, bars and shops in a couple minutes but at the same time it was totally silent at night. We loved it and would love to come back.
Our fourth year and we're hoping to come back next year
A beautiful way to extend the english summer. There's nothing better than sitting on the balcony looking out over the sea in the Mediterranean sunshine.
And you are perfect guests!
A little house with a big personality
Lovely little house in a great situation. Wonderful views of the sea and passing boats. The market and shops a very short distance away. Plenty to do and see in Antibes and surrounding area. Enjoyed it so much I am going back to the house next year.
Wow, unbelievable stay
This place has it all! The view from both the 2nd and 3rd story window is nothing short of breath taking. You can choose to have your coffee on the second floor balcony and wave to the tourists who are admiring the villa(and envious of you having a place on the sea), or you can choose the more private garden down below. Shopping in old town is less than 2 blocks away and the beach is about 1 block. The place is immaculate and the kitchen comes complete with everything necessary for wonderful meals at home. Loved my stay. This place is not your same ol same hotel room. This maisonette captures the artistry and simplicity of the south of France, it feels timeless.
Adorable seaside stay
What a wonderful visit! This maisonette in the old town of Antibes has a great location - close to beaches, boats and wonderful restaurants - but nothing can top the view.. Waking up to a view of the sea and stepping onto the balcony for a morning coffee is priceless.
Nancy is a fantastic host providing all our necessities in this immaculate little house. Highly recommend!!
I stayed here starting on May 6th, honestly a life changer...The seaside 2 story maisonette exports you to another reality. It is perfectly decorated to capture the simplicity and artistry of the south of France. The surroundings of all the buildings truly remind you that you are right next to the Picasso Museum with beautiful doors, architecture and flowers all around. The maisonette itself is sparkling clean and has a 2nd story balcony that is perfect to have your coffee, lunch, dinner, after dinner drinks, etc. You can wave to the all the people admiring the building from that view point or if you prefer privacy there is a quaint garden below. Loved it, would recommend it to anyone.
The kitchen is modern and efficient so it is easy to take advantage of the fresh produce and meats in the near by market and make your own luscious meals without all the cost and inconvenience of eating out all the time. There is also a washing machine so you don't have to be hauling around dirty clothes as you travel.
Love this truly unique property, it is a bargain as compared to the sterile excessively Americanized hotel chains that are offered elsewhere.
Nice location,house a bit tatty !
We would give 5 stars for the location and the view,but that's about it.
The house is very small as described,but you would expect some more storage space ,even for only two people.Owners clothes in wardrobe
didn't help.The house is very cluttered with
Owners things ,every single drawer in the house
Is full up with stuff.Overall house is a bit tatty,
(Seat covers in lounge,armchairs,rusty fridge etc.)
Water pressure in the house was very low,
almost impossible to have a shower.
Emailed owner, she promised to help but nothing happened.
We had to email her her for the access code
the night before our arrival,she just forgotten to send it.
House would probably be ok for students with
lower expections but not for this price.
Sorry Nancy , but we hope to prevent other
People from getting disappointed
Thanks for the inputs always. Surprised Thibault didn't stop by! Agree on the storage ... always a problem in the older houses. Bathroom closets should have been empty.
Hope you enjoyed the view and the little village. Will be there soon to resolve the issues.
Did follow up with the water issue and maintenance did stop and adjusted. But didn't want to bother guest in early morning.
Working on additional items
Short walking to beaches Plage Gravette or Plage Salis. The Royal Beach Club is a wonderful way to stay for the day with loungers and a fantastic lunch on the sea.
Nice airport is 20 kilometres and there are taxis and buses. Take a train to Paris! The train station is a 10 minute walk or go to Italy for the day.... There is a car rental location name Midiloc where you can rent a car for the day to go Eze for 37 euro all inclusive. Just ask for Martine and she will help you out.
The old town has a fantastic variety of shops for food, items typical to this area of France, clothing and boulangeries. The historic seaside town has history from the Greeks and Romans. There are so many pretty streets and Place National has clothing and antique markets on various days through the week.
