After spending several years vacationing in Antibes, we decided to make it our home and embark on our journey of procuring unique homes in and around the ramparts of the old town.

Why Antibes-Rental.com chose Antibes Old Town
Maison du Bateau is perfectly situated on a quiet cobblestoned street in the heart of old Antibes--next to the famous Picasso Museum. Rue du Bateau is one of the oldest streets in Antibes and dates from the Roman period. We love the location of the house, near the Provencal Market and all the restaurants and shops of Antibes. It is a perfect place for a memorable holiday on the French Riviera. There is a well-maintained communal courtyard next to the house with private seating for guests staying at Maison du Bateau.
What makes this House unique
The property is centrally located in a bustling town that has activities in all four seasons of the year. No car is needed to enjoy a vacation while staying at Maison du Bateau. But, if you do come by car, there is a convenient underground parking garage just 400 meters away (61 Euros/week).

Great Place to Stay in Antibes
We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Maison du Bateau. The home is well equipped and comfortable. We liked that it was in walking distance to the markets, shops, and restaurants of Old Town and only a fifteen minute walk to the rail station.
Great holiday house in old Antibes
Beautifully restored house in a great location in the old town, right next to the Picasso museum, the Market, and a stone’s throw from the sea. We enjoyed shopping in the market and cooking for ourselves as well eating out. Good for anyone who likes to holiday without a car as everything is on the doorstop, and you might struggle to park if you did have a car. We used the coastal train for our excursions, but chose to spend time in Antibes too. Very warm welcome from owners Paul and Tom. Thank you.
All mod cons in a beautiful, old building
This property is full of character, tasteful and so well equipped we could not think of anything that it doesn't have. The ancient street is peaceful and tranquil but a two minute stroll takes you to Antibes' fabulous, Provencal market and the many restaurants and bars of the old town. We loved everything about our stay and have resolved to return.
Beautiful property in the center of Antibes. Very, very clean. True French interior and exterior design is outstanding. Lovely territory in the garden with a garden table and chairs. The place has everything you need from towels and beach bags to every kitchen accessory you can imagine. The English lady Susan, who greeted us, was very very nice to communicate with. Tom and Paul sent me all the details in an instant plus all the information about Antibes, superior communication. 12 stars out of 10, my best recommendations.
High quality managed by excellent professional staff.
Marvellous eye for detail & client focused.
Set on one of the most picturesque streets of vieux Antibes between the Musée Picasso and the Marché Provençal, Maison du Bateau provides the perfect setting to enjoy the quaint cobbled streets, casual cafés and glamorous beaches of the French Rivera.
Plage de la Gravette is located five minutes from the house. This small beach is great for families with young children as it is very safe (sheltered from waves by a small breakwater). Antibes also boasts several private beaches with casual restaurants and beach seating available. Visitors should also explore the larger beaches at Juan Les Pins, on the opposite side of the Cap d'Antibes, as well as its many restaurants and specialty shops.
Maison du Bateau is located steps away from the daily Provencal market. Rosé wines, olives, lavender, seafood, goat cheese and Cavaillon melons are among some of the regional specialties on offer.
Visitors should also check out the cathedral and the old ramparts of Antibes. The town has several museums, the best of which are the Picasso Museum and the Peynet Museum.
