A special home in a special town
This beautiful home worked out perfectly for our family of 4 adults and 2 children. It was extremely comfortable and clean and had all the amenities we needed. The location was fantastic - so close to the amazing market, and a few minutes walk to the Picasso Museum and a five minute walk to a sandy beach. It was also an easy walk to the train station for day trips. Loved being in the old city - very magical.
Perfect weather, perfect location, amazing breakfasts
The Location of Mr. Kent´s property is truly perfect - the Sea is a Stone´s throw away and the views are what post Cards are made for. The exterior is amazing and the interior is very nicely renovated. The towels are thick and the bedding very nice. Tile floors throughout. There are dozens of wonderful bakeries in Antibes and gorgeous spots. My Young daughter was thrilled with the children´s books and all could find a good read at the property if they wished. The kitchen was nice and we used the washing machine daily. The combo washer-drier was truly only a washer. No clothes ever got dry even after repeated sessions in the drier. However, we were blessed with amazingly glorious weather, so we hung the clothes outside - which worked great for us. Our children were disappointed with the Speed of the WIFI. My only disappointment was that it took a Long time (ten full minutes!) for the water in the shower to get luke warm. The master bedroom is beyond great and the shower was lovely despite the lack of hot water. The full bath is very nice. The Little toilet on the top Floor is fine - but because the door is decorative and doesn´t Close at the top Corners, one must bite one´s lip when doing their Business because the Sound carries down all the stairs...we stayed with 4 of our children - our 3 Boys are all taller than 6 feet and we were all happy with the property. Mr Kent was very responsive and quick communicating. M. Arnault was responsive and efficient in Antibes. I would recommend the property highly to others.
Gorgeous and comfortable- luxury home from home
Amazing location, really nice accommodation with the most comfortable beds I have ever stayed in on holiday. Really spacious and clean. Really helpful and friendly manager. Antibes is simply lovely- we will be back!
I searched for homes to rent for MONTHS until I found this home. The owner, Daniel, is VERY responsive and helpful. We just returned to the US today and I miss this house!
We are a family of 5---4 large guys aging from 16-23 along with my husband and me. All the guys are 6'3" and up--so we needed space. This home fit the bill perfectly. We had plenty of room and facilities. I visited the market each day for fruit, baguettes, croissants etc...It is less than 100 steps from the door of the home. Even though our train arrived late, Svetlana met us at the door with a nice bottle of wine and some bananas--Merci beaucoup!! Due to our late arrival, we did take a taxi to the house from the SNCF station---it was about 25euros for the trip. Be sure to grab a map of town at the Tourist Office (across the street from the train station)--that helped us a lot as well.
The AC worked great--all appliances that we used were functional and well-kept. A HUGE thank you to the previous guest who left a beach umbrella and goggles for use! That was great. Previous guests must have left beach towels as well, which was nice since ours were too wet at times.
The Wifi connection was good as well.
Overall--we had a wonderful trip and would stay here again for sure!
Thank you to Daniel, Arnaud (realtor office/manager), Svetlana and Arnaud's dad who spoke with us once--their office is RIGHT around the corner if you have any questions..
This was our first Homeaway rental and it was an OUTSTANDING experience. I would not hesitate to use this home and Homeaway site again.
Thank you so much Daniel!
Beautiful apartment in beautiful location
Very impressed with this beautiful house on the ramparts in Antibes... house immaculately clean and well equipped to high standard with beautiful decor, but a very homely place with an understated touch of class! Ease of booking with any queries quickly responded by Mr Kent although we had no issues whilst there ! Central to the gorgeous beaches and market with lots of restaurants to choose from. Can't wait for our next visit!!highly recommended!
An absolute gem in the heart of old Antibes
The situation and interior of this glorious old house was overwhelmingly beautiful. Set back from the main bustling daily market in old Antibes, the house overlooks the sea and Cap d'Antibes. We were absolutely delighted with the interior of the house which has been so tastefully and sensitively renovated maintaining the wonderful character of the property but bringing it straight to the 21st century with every modern convenience. The property was spotlessly clean and extremely well maintained and the sumptuous bed linen and beautiful bedrooms made our stay even more relaxing.
We loved the fact that the property is so central that wonderful beaches are just a short walk away (with their magnificent views of the Maritime Alps rising up in the distance) as is the bustling Port and beautiful old town with its quaint and artisan shops. There are of course some delicious restaurants, namely Les Vieux Murs, 50 meters away and for those who feel like something extra special the Michelin Star Le Figuier de St-Esprit restaurant just around the corner. Of course there are many other cosy bistros and pizzerias as well as the Place National square which is taken over by outdoor eating.
I would not hesitate to highly recommend this beautiful property, fully equipped with all mod cons. Mr and Mrs Kent provided excellent service and were more than happy to answer any queries we had about the surrounding area. They clearly love this property and place and we felt that they wanted us to love it as much as they do. We absolutely did and have just booked for next year!!
We are in the prefect location on the Cote D'Azur only a 20 minute drive to Nice airport and a short trip to Cannes and it's shopping along the Croisette and renowned Film Festival.The House occupies a fantastic location directly on the ancient ramparts of the Old town of Antibes with views across the sea to the Cap D'Antibes.The House is in a unique south facing position on the ramparts being set back on a quiet , pedestrianised street with it's elevated and prominent position giving it the benefit of excellent sunlight to the terrace.The house is less than a minutes walk from the bustling Antibes provencal market and night market which opens daily and a wide choice of restaurants and cafe's are in very close vicinity.The world famous Picasso museum housed in the Chateau Grimaldi is just one street away by foot and Place National is home to the Musee Peynet.Antibes is also famous for it's Port Vauban the true centre for mediterranean yachting which makes this an all year round destination.The port is a 3 minute walk from the house.Close to the port is the imposing mass of the 16th Century Forte Carre visitor attraction where Napoleon was imprisoned.The house is 300 metres to Antibes sandy beaches.Alternatively there are a number of pretty 'perched' villages a short car ride inland such as St Paul de Vence and Mougins with their numerous restaurants and galleries.Monaco and the Italian border is a short train ride from Antibes station and is therefore very accessible for the Formula 1 Grand Prix.In winter both Alps Maritime ski resorts of Isola and Auron are approximately 1.5 hours drive from Antibes making ski-ing accessible.
