Description

A charming duplex holiday apartment with large roof terrace in the center of old town Antibes.  

This property has three bedrooms and 2 shower rooms, making it ideal for a family or a group of friends to share.

Bedroom 1 has a king bed, Bedroom 2 has two single beds and Bedroom 3 has a double bed which opens out onto the roof terrace. 

Two Portable air conditioning units and several floor fans are available for the warmer summer nights. 

The best bit about this holiday apartment is the 20 square meter roof terrace that gets good amounts of sun through out the day and is also a very private space for those to prefer who sunbath away from the busy beaches.

The apartment entrance hall leads in to a fully fitted, well equipped kitchen and dining area, with a quality solid wood dining table for up to 7 people. Bedrooms 1 and 2 are situated on this floor and there is a modern, fully tiled shower room with WC on this floor.

An internal staircase takes you to the upper floor where you’ll find a second fully tiled, modern shower room with WC and the lounge area, with large picture windows opening on to the terrace and beyond to the Old Town roof tops. The lounge has a flat screen TV with some UK freeview TV channels, a blueray DVD player and mini hi-fi system.

Passing through the lounge you reach bedroom 3 which in turn leads on to 20 sqm of sunny and private roof terrace with a dining table for up tp 7 people and plenty of space left over for a sunbather or two. A terrace of this size and quality in the Old Town is a rare gem! The terrace also has a large wooden parasol and everything needed to enjoy al fresco living throughout your stay. The terrace is the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch, cocktails or dinner, there are also loungers to relax in so that you can enjoy the sunshine or the shade during your stay.

The kitchen has an electric hob, microwave, fridge with freezer box, dishwasher and washing machine plus everything you will need to conjure up delicious meals with all the mediterranean local fare.

This holiday apartment is situated in the heart of Old Antibes in one of the most picturesque pedestrian streets.  When you stay here you will have cafes, restaurants and boutiques on your doorstep so you will truly be in the character and style of the Old Town, whilst also having your own comfortable oasis to easily retreat to.

The magnificent harbor and beach is just five minutes walk from the apartment and there are also several larger beaches a short stroll away. More than 100 excellent restaurants and cafes are also ‘right on your doorstep’ so that you can enjoy a great meal with a glass or two of wine and then meander home for a night cap on the beautiful terrace.

The apartment for rent makes an ideal location to explore the town as well as being an ideal centre for exploring the Cote d’Azur. The train station connecting Antibes to the whole of this beautiful region is nearby as are public car parks if you decide to hire a car.

You enter from the street through an ancient wooden door and then climb 2 flights of weathered stairs from here you enter this beautiful apartment with wooden floors and charming rooms.

5 Star holiday in gorgeous Antibes.

5 Star holiday in gorgeous Antibes. Arrived to lovely sunshine in Antibes & we wandered along some fabulous streets & had to stop for a refreshing drink & cupcake on the way, happy to recommend Choopys. Arriving at the apartment a fabulous front door & greeted by 39 steps up & then into the apartment, it was just lovely, very French & full of character. Up some more stairs & onto the wonderful roof terrace, great for alfresco dining or sipping a wine, cocktail etc..perfect sunbathing spot too. Large table & chairs, sun loungers & a huge Parasol if needed. We spent so much time on the terrace, breakfasts & a takeaway dinner one evening too. Perfect October weather. The apartment had everything we needed, comfy bedrooms (super pillows in Master room ) & shower rooms. Fully stocked kitchen with everything we required. Even a Cocktail shaker. Fabulous selection of restaurants, cafes & bars. We strolled along admiring the Super Yachts & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We loved the area & all that Antibes has to offer, we shall return to this lovely apartment.

Lovely stay

Our stay in the apartment was very pleasant. We appreciated the strategic location in the heart of the historic center, 7 minutes walk from the Gravette beach and 15 from the Ponteil beach. The terrace is really beautiful, overlooking the terracotta roofs. The apartment is equipped with all the comforts (new washing machine and dishwasher, many fans, cleaning products, iron, beach towels, some card games...). Comfortable mattresses and pillows. I confirm, as for other comments, that you cannot use the two showers at the same time, but just organize and it is a problem that can be overcome. We enjoyed the owners' collection of DVDs, fine cinephiles. The TV only had one channel, but maybe we didn't manage to make it work. We confirm our appreciation for Janne (it is the second time we rent through her agency). Always available, kind and ready to meet any request. Perfect for those who love an authentic stay, with the seagulls singing and the swallows, the bell tower that plays the time and the inhabitants who carry out their daily activities!

Long Weekend

The apartment was in a perfect location in the middle of the old part of Antibes. There is an endless choice of restaurants within a several block radius of the apartment, so we tried as many as possible. The evenings were especially enjoyable with a cocktail on the open-air roof veranda under the moon and stars. Definitely a great location and value!

A lovely 10 day break in a perfect typically French apartment with roof terrace. Great central location on a pedestrianised street with an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants all within a minutes walk. Loved the market in town and walking the town’s ramparts. Would definitely return to Antibes and re-book this apartment.

What a wonderful experience from start to finish! Janne helped us feel secure in our booking. Upon arrival we had easy to follow clear instructions. The apartment itself is in the best position within the old town but on a very quiet pedestrianised side street with quaint shops and eateries around. The rooftop terrace was perfect for our evening meals- one night we were serenaded by a cello recital from across the way! The equipment within Janne's home was of high quality and made us feel at home. The only down side was the heatwave which coincided with our stay and made the rooms stifling although there were a plethora of fans and air conditioning units to help. The set up of the apartment was perfect for our family as the duplex arrangements gave us all (5 adults) plenty of communal and separate space. There is lots to do in and Around Antibes itself and following advice from Janne we visited St Vince de Paul- a not to be missed experience and went over the border to Italy's Ventimiglia market. We strolled around the shops, markets and alleyways and went for swims at the beach in the evenings. We absolutely loved our stay and would recommend choosing this apartment with no shadow of doubt.

Dear Gillian Thanks for being such an awesome guest and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. Best Janne :-)

Great location

We had a really great stay at the appartment. We were two adults, two teenagers and one smaller child staying there. The appartment has a great location in the old town on a narrow street with no cars. There are many nice restaurants nearby. Our best meal we had at the restaurant downstairs. There are sandy beaches within a few hundred meters. Our favourite was Plage du Ponteil. The public transportation network is good and there was no need for a car. It was easy to make day trips to Nice and Monaco by train. The appartments was clean and well equiped. The roof terrace was great. The only negative issue was the communal staircase which was narrow and not very pleasant. Janne who greeted us at the appartment was very friendly and helpful. We can warmly recommend the appartment!

Dear Joni It was lovely to meet you and your family and we hope to see you again next year! Kind regards Janne

Great little apartment

We enjoyed our stay in this delightful apartment. Our travel companions had health issues so we ended up being just one couple and had plenty of space! The central common staircase is drab and bit of a climb with suitcases; however the result is worth it. It appears that the apartment has been refurbished in the last year or two so everything is new and fresh. Charming decor and lots of small thoughtful conveniences make you feel welcome. Our greeter was also very friendly and helpful with recommendations for shopping, restaurants, etc. The location in the heart of old Antibes was perfect. One could walk everywhere and you really only need a car to explore outlying regions. You actually felt that you were a part of the landscape living as one of ' the locals'!

Dear Jennifer We are happy you had a wonderful stay and look forward to seeing you again in the future. Best

In the Centre of it all

Owners Direct review: KAREN M. said... 19 Oct 2016 At the centre of it allRue James Close, Antibes, PACA, 06600, France Date of Stay 17 Sep 2016 Helpful votes: 0/0 If you want a location that is at the centre of Old Antibes, look no further than this property. With a location on Rue James Close, you are on a side street that still has a lot happening on it, be it in the form of cafes from which to grab the quintessential croissant and cafe au lait, boutique shops in which to purchase a gift or personal reminder of your holiday, or bistro style restaurants. You are also a very short walk from a wider selection of restaurants, shops and local markets as well as supermarkets, as well as to several museums and the seawall. Old Antibes has a very laid back, casual vibe and this property is in keeping with that feeling. You enter a very nondescript doorway and have to walk up three flights of narrow stairs to get to this apartment, so the first downside is that if you have mobility issues and easy access is important, this is not the place for you. The apartment itself is well laid out, with three bedrooms, two adequately sized ones on the main floor with a well stocked kitchen and a dining area, as well as a full bathroom. The roomy master bedroom is on the upper floor, where there is also a full bathroom and a casual living room. What really makes this apartment though, is the outdoor terrace, one big enough to house a six seater table as well as have room for two loungers, where we enjoyed al fresco breakfasts of croissants and pain au chocolat every morning, along with the odd charcuterie styled lunch. Small details such as beach mats, beach umbrellas and wine coolers left good impressions, as did the cleanliness of the place, the personalized welcome by the property manager and the offer of a private taxi service from and to the airport. Downsides include the fact that along with being on the third floor of a building with no elevator, it is also located right above a restaurant, which luckily enough for us was only opened 2 of the nights we were there. However, we went in the shoulder season, so not sure if it does more business in the busier summer months. Being on a busier side street, there can be a fair bit of traffic at night but again, for the time of year we were there, that was not a major issue. If you like to sleep in however, you may find that a bit difficult, unless you can sleep in a room with the windows shut (there are fans), as I was woken early each morning to the sound of street cleaners, both mechanized and handheld brooms. That being said, would defintely recommend. My Response Dear Guest Thank you for your delightful review, we are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to see you again in the future. The stairs are listed in the advertising as not advised for people with mobility issues. The street cleaners wake everyone up all year around! Including myself! We hope to see you, your family and friends in 2017. Thanks so much!

Beautiful Home from Home

Owners Direct review. Helen and Family said... 17 Aug 2016 Stayed August 2016 - Rue James Close, Antibes, PACA, 06600, France Date of Stay 9 Aug 2016 My family of 6 adults stayed very comfortably in the beautiful apartment. This apartment is really home from home, everything we needed was provided for. The apartment is spacious, clean and airy. The roof terrace is wonderful with a great parasol to help keep the mid day sun from burning. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner on the terrace. The beds are comfortable and fans were provided for the apartment to help keep us cool as the weather was extremely hot during the day and night. A washing machine and dish washer are provided, we didn't use the washing machine but make use of the dish washer. There are two shower rooms and a lovely lounge with Skye TV. We were able to keep up with all the action at the olympics which was great. The apartment is in a pretty pedestrian only street, you will have to bring your luggage from a cab up the cobble roads to the apartment door. The restaurant next door to the apartment did lovely food and even did us a takeaway putting our pasta dishes in bowls which we cleaned and took back the next day. The apartment is so close to many beaches, in the summer season it is wise to get to the beach before mid day if you don't want to hunt for a space. There are so many places to walk in the evening which have a lovely atmosphere, street entertainers, evening markets and bustling bars and restaurants. We took the train and had breakfast in Nice, lunch in Italy and dinner in Monocco. Fab day out so much to see. I can also recommend a trip to Cannes try the Segway's they are so easy to use and a fantastic way to see the city. 1 hour for 30 euros, very good value, with an excellent guide. We had such fun and will be booking the South of France again and would Defintely stay In this apartment again. Helen and Family - London Leave
