Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2+

Three hundred year old house situated on the edge of Antibes Old Town. A corner property painted in typical Provencal palette of yellow exterior with blue shutters, arranged over three floors with a roof terrace. The house has been completely renovated using original timbers and revealing interior stone walls. It is open plan with a large room on each floor linked by a wooden staircase plus a roof terrace which is accessed by stairs from the top floor. From this terrace there are views over the roof tops to the distant mountains. The light and comfortable living room is on the top floor with a sofa, a dining table for four and a hand-built kitchen which is well-equipped for cooking and eating at home if you choose. A spacious bedroom is on the middle floor with a huge armoire for storage. The ground floor contains a small sitting room with a sofa bed so there is space to accommodate a further two people. NB as the house is open plan they need to be family or very good friends! There is a bathroom on the ground floor (not open plan!) which is being updated for the 2016 season with a walk in shower. Also on this floor is a washing machine.

The house is delightful having the traditional feel of ancient timbers and thick stone walls but as it has been entirely renovated it has a spacious and open interior and is particularly light on the upper floors. You can enjoy a drink on the terrace looking out across the rooftops at the swooping swallows or dine under the stars. Stepping outside the front door in the immediate vicinity are many amenities - food shops, a theatre, cinema, bus station, the main town square of Place de Gaulle and numerous restaurants, cafes and bars.

The house is situated on the edge of the Old Town and close to the many delights of Antibes. The town is made up of lovely winding streets and alleys, traditional Provencal buildings and a multitude of charming restaurants and shops. A five minute stroll will take you to the sea in one direction or the daily Provencal Market in the other. The Picasso Musem, medieval ramparts and Port Vauban, home to the largest yachts in Europe, are all within a ten minute walk. Equally near by are three beaches, all free, for swimming, wind surfing or sailing. Cap d'Antibes and Juan les Pins are within walking distance or reached by local bus. With Antibes railway station also just a short walk away you can take a train ride along the glorious Cote d'Azur, west to Cannes or east to Nice, Monte Carlo and Italy . Should you hire a car there is the lovely hinterland with the pretty perched villages in the hills behind Antibes to explore and then enjoy the dramatic landscape and outstanding views back towards the Mediterranean. For those interested in art there are the homes and art galleries showcasing the many artists attracted to the south of France over the years by the climate and the extraordinary quality of the light.

Beautiful old house with lots of character in the centre of the old town in Antibes.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful week in this lovely house in Antibes. Perfect location right in the centre of the old town near the market, shops, restaurants, bars and patisseries. Also a short walk to the harbour, Picasso museum and the lovely Plage de la Gravette. The house was well equipped with everything we needed and Susan the owner was really helpful before our visit promptly answering questions via email. Her friend's husband greeted us on arrival and even showed us to a lovely restaurant and ensured we had a table, as we arrived quite late. We didn't hire a car and felt there was no need as it was easy to travel around locally on foot, by bus or train. We really can't wait to return again.

A lovely traditional house in the vieille ville of Antibes

  • 5 of 5

A delightful property, ideally located, in the old town of Antibes. The owner, Susan, was incredibly helpful, as was her agent, Trish. We thoroughly recommend the property and would certainly stay there again.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have absolutely loved staying in this beautiful, rustic little house. It had been very sympathetically restored to a high standard and quality. The rooms are spacious for two people and the roof terrace is totally private. Antibes is such a lovely place and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. We visited Monte Carlo and Cannes also which are both extremely easy to get to by train. Overall the whole holiday was perfect....would highly recommend this lovely house especially if you love very clean, high quality, rustic charm.

A character house over 3 floors in Antibes, with a small roof terrace.

  • 4 of 5

The house is mostly of wooden interior and is full of character over 3 floors.

The roof terrace is small but adequate to comfortably sit 4 adults.

Location is close to shopping area and close to the port.

Nice house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is nicely furnished with an interesting layout. Arrangements were easy. The location was perfect: a short walk to the train station, and close to some good restaurants on Rue Sade.

What a wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

It was while perusing listings on HomeAway for a place to stay in the South of France that we came across the photo for this house. It was actually the house that made us choose Antibes, and both were perfect. The house is cosy, lovingly restored and decorated, well equipped, and in a great location. The old town is idyllic with plenty of restaurants, shops, markets, the beach, and I could spend everyday in the food market. We did a few day trips, and the train and bus stations are an easy walk from the house. Owner and manager were both wonderfully responsive.
