Antibes, situated between Cannes and Nice on the Cote d'Azur was a Greek fortified town named Antipolis in the 5th century BC, and later a Roman town. It has always been an active port for trading along the Mediterranean. Visit the busy marina next to the Old Town (vielle ville), with the ramparts along the sea and the long, arched protective wall along the port. There are plenty of little streets for exploring, restaurants of all types, lots of shops from authentic handicraft stores to the well-known fashion stores. Public transport (Antibes railway station and local buses) can take you to from St Tropez to Monaco. The seaside town of Juan les Pins is only 15 mins away. Nice is the closest airport (17km).
This newly refurbished 1 bedroom apartment with balcony is situated in the centre of Antibes, a 5 minute walk from the Mediterranean and its beaches and 10 minutes walk to the Old Town, the local supermarkets and shops. You can walk easily to all attractions, the bars and restaurants, or just relax and enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the Med...!
At the far end of the lounge you will find a fully fitted kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, electric oven and hob.
The air-conditioned lounge, also with balcony access, has a new style sofa bed with thick mattress and wall mounted tv. Wi-fi.
The apartment has a small double bedroom which has access to the balcony.
In the entrance hall, there is a walk in shower and separate wc.
The apartment has central heating.
Wall mounted tv and wi-fi
The balcony has seating for 4 and a sunlounger. If you look to the left, you can just see the sea, and look to the right you can see the Alps.
Short term parking is payable on the street or you can park in one of the public car-parks. During July and August, the town is much busier and you might find it easier to book a parking space - you can book your place on-line.
Sorry, no pets. We do not cater for babies.
End of stay cleaning can be booked at £40. Please request at the time of booking.
Having lived in France for 16 years, we needed an excuse to return - so we bought this apartment in our bit of paradise - we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

You can spend many hours exploring the narrow streets. Visit in the evenings / night, when the place comes alive. It's not a big area but there is plenty to see. Some areas are very touristy, but if you venture off the main streets there are some interesting buildings, restaurants and shops. There are also museums and churches, and you can walk around some of the old fortifications.
The "big" yachts are owned by billionaires & superstars. The whole area is buzzing and is a great place to visit, peruse and eat.
Daily market selling fresh produce. Lovely cafes and restaurants along the side.
A lovely gallery with some interesting paintings/pictures/drawings in it. It also has a fabulous terrace with a stunning view!
