About Cécile Pavani
I arrived in Antibes when I was 14 years old with my parents and my little sister and my heart never really forgot Antibes. In 2013, I finally came back to settle here. I renovated this apartment to live in it and to welcome my 2 daughters, my family and my friends to spend nice holidays. I am Italian and I have been living in Paris for almost 30 years. I am an Italian teacher at the Lycée International de Sophia Antipolis and I love this profession that gives me the opportunity to share my passion for my native country. I love the sea and travelling more than everything (Cambodia, Thailand, America, Africa, Greece and of course Italy). I love to sing, to dance the rock and roll and to mix rock, pop and classical music. I am a great fan of the regional Jazz festivals, I also love reading and going to movies. I travel the town and its surroundings by bike and I also go to Cannes or Nice even if I have to take the train on the way back home.
Cécile Pavani purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Cécile Pavani chose Antibes
Antibes is the ideal spot to travel the Côte d’Azur as you please and I am delighted to share the magic of this place with other holiday-makers as I did for my friends and my 2 daughters since their childhood.
What makes this Apartment unique
Everybody loves this apartment, its views, its quietness and the constant brightness both in summer and winter thanks to its panoramic views. My friends and my family also love the large convivial kitchen that is equipped to prepare festive meals that you can cook with your loved ones and enjoy on the balconies or inside. You will also love to sit down in the living room for music, television or computer sessions but everybody says that it is an ideal nest for holidays in couple: with its romantic views that change all the time and the many discoveries that the town and the region offer, it is the ideal place to come in couple and recharge your batteries.

Beautiful apartment in ideal location in Antibes
My wife and I stayed at this apartment in a prime spot in Antibes for 6 nights. It is within walking distance from the train station and a 5-minute stroll from a lovely beach and the shops, cafes and restaurants of Old Antibes. Perfect spot.
The apartment itself is beautifully furnished in a classic, modern mediterranean style. Its a real home from home actually and is ideal for relaxing in. The 2 balconies were well used, especially the one that overlooks the citadel in the old town and has sea views across to Nice and the Mountains behind.
Inisde, the modern kitchen is equipped with everything you can need for a short or a long stay. The lounge is comfortable and the bedroom has a bright and airy feel with plenty of space. The bathroom is really great with. Large walkin shower and stylishly fitted out.
Overall, this property exceeded our expectations. It is a 5-star apartment but is very reasonably priced. Best of all, the owner Cecile cannot do enough to help and even left us with wine, eggs and other essentials for our arrival, a very welcome treat!
We plan to rent here again for a week or more once our new baby arrives. Strongly recommended.
Thanks for all your nice words, that make me very happy and you are welcome to stay in Les Toits d'Antibes when you want.
Fabulous apartment in Antibes
This apartment was perfect in every way. Cecile was a perfect host - met us at the designated time, even left us appetizers! She is wonderful! The apartment was perfectly located. We could walk to a grocery store on the practical side of things and to the harbor and beach for fun. The apartment is modern, light and airy, well equipped and a pleasure to spend time in. The building was very quiet and amazingly, the street was also extremely quiet starting at about 11 pm. We could sleep with the sliding doors open on this 4th floor apartment. A very safe area. There is even a garage as long as you have a small vehicle. I highly recommend this rental.
Thanks for the nice words. I have been really happy to meet you and that you was satisfied about the apartment as you say.
See you soon.
Amazing time at this place!
Cecile is very welcoming host. We stayed at her apartments for 3 weeks and it was an amazing time. Apartmemts are located in a very convenient place with good infrastructure. Just in a few minutes you will find groceries, cafes, restaraunts, drug store, public and private beaches. There's also a fantastic view on a mountains, sea and harbour. Moreover, there's always fresh air and breeze since you have two balconies at the opposite sides of the house. Apartments are fully equiped, so you will have more then enough for your comfortable stay. We will be happy to rent them next time!
Thank you so much for your very nice words. You two was really friendly guests and it was à pleasure to host you. Have good time.
The Place to be! great view in Antibes
The apartment is much more beautiful as described and shown in the photos. We stayed here for two weeks in July and we highly recommend it. It is really easy to get to, in the center of Antibes with private parking. 3 minutes walking distance to the beach, the old town and bus station and 10 minutes to the train station. The apartment has a fabulous outlook onto old town, Port Vauban with its yachts, and lovely musée Picasso and with a little view of the Alps and Italy..... It is very quiet and relaxing. The apartment itself was very clean and had everything we needed for a great holiday. The kitchen area is gorgeous with all modern equipment: fridge, modern cooker&hob, microwave, coffee machine etc. Great quality kitchen. We stayed in a couple of evenings and everything we needed was there. There is a good sized living room, with space for a dining table, a sofa, a large flat-screen TV. There are a couple of English news channels. and an ipod hi-fi for music which was very useful. Both living areas, the kitchen and the main bedroom open up onto the 2 balconies. The apartment is very well designed. The bedroom is very confortable and great in hanging storage for clothes and beach towels for our stay.... Location-wise the apartment is perfect. The owner Cécile is really good to deal with, and we communicated very well with her before and after our stay. Excellent apartment for a stay in Antibes and we would certainly stay here when returning to Côte d'Azur! This place is definitively "The place to be in Antibes!"
Thank's a lot and see you soon in France.
Excellent for exploring Antibes, prime position!
Excellent apartment in prime position and great view with efficient and friendly owner.
Equipment is particularly good and we appreciated the very good bed, climatisation and ipad.
View and position were perfect. Access to stop for bus from airport at only 5mn was particularly helpful.
Cecile the owner was very helpful and available. We are already planning a return!
Thank's for your time and nice words.
See you when you want
Sehr, sehr schön ....
Wir waren eine Woche in diesem tollen Apartment. Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen, Bei der hochwertigen und sauberen Ausstattung fehlte es an nichts. Die Wohnung ist hell und freundlich. Rückseitig mit einem schönen Blick über die Dächer des alten Antibes. Im Hintergrund der Hafen und das Meer, etwas entfernt die Silhouette von Nizza. Nach vorne eine belebte Straße, dennoch ruhiger Eindruck, mit großen schattenspendeten Bäumen und dem Blick auf die Häuser des neueren Antibes, die der Bauhausarchitektur ähneln. Praktisch vor der Haustür jede Menge Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Die Fußgängerzone der Altstadt beginnt um die Ecke. Zum Strand und Hafen sind es etwa 10 Minuten zu Fuß. Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin war unkompliziert und Cecile ist sehr sympatisch .... wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und kommen gerne mal wieder.
Bernhard & Susi
Danke schön Bernhard und Susi.
Merci beaucoup et à très bientôt
In this apartment in the heart of town, you will be close to all shops, the cinema, the theatres, the fishing harbours and marinas including the famous “quai des milliardaires”, the ramparts, the Picasso and Peynet museums and the very charming pedestrian streets of the old Antibes. The old town is at your disposal with its picturesque narrow streets by the ramparts and the charming area of Le Safranier. The Provencal market of the old Antibes is one of the most typical of the region and there you will find fresh products from the local producers every morning: fruits, vegetables, cheese, fish, local products, socca, honey, olives and tapenade. There are many restaurants for all tastes and all budgets with lovely pleasant terraces to take a break or relax, enjoy the local dishes and have an aperitif. You will be within a few minutes from the many beaches of Antibes. The charming beach of La Gavette is a few 500m away from the apartment and Antibes also has several private beaches with casual restaurants and comfortable beach sunloungers. I also recommend you the Royal Beach at the Jardins du Ponteil only 500 m away from the apartment. You will also have the opportunity to explore the huge sandy beaches of Juan-les-Pins and Cannes or the pebble beaches with crystal-clear water of Fort Carré in Nice. You will also be very close to Monaco and Italy and you can visit the coastline and the hinterlands to discover all the exceptional touristic sites: Cap d’Antibes, Lérins Islands, Théoule-sur-Mer and the Esterel until Saint-Tropez. Closer, the old village of Biot and its internationally renowned “Verrerie” (glass factory), Valbonne with its old town and its Place des Arcades, the old Cagnes, Mougins and the galleries of contemporary artists, Saint-Paul-de-Vence and the Maeght Foundation, etc. You are close to several sport activities: boat rental in Antibes, tennis, Olympic-sized pool, sailing club and port. There is Marineland and its internationally renowned attractions, the departmental parks of Vaugrenier and La Valmasque. The Golf de Biot is 10 minutes away and Cap d’Antibes is also to discover by car or on foot via the Chemin des Contrebandiers or also by boat. For climbing lovers, Baou de Saint-Jeannet is a must-see in the region. Nice is 30 minutes away by car or by train with the Promenade des Anglais, the Jazz Festival, its carnival, its museums, its squares, its old town and the flower market of Cours Saleya that are a foretaste of Italy but also the Negresco Hotel, the Russian Church, the Belle Epoque buildings and its “fin de siècle” atmosphere. You will find a Casino, many restaurants and typical cafés to enjoy the best Provencal cuisine or to have a drink on a terrace, cinemas and many theatres. The pedestrian streets, the old Nice, Port Lympia, the park of the Château, the Russian Church and the brand new Coulée Verte are important places to visit. 15 minutes away by car or by train, Cannes welcomes you with its Croisette, its beaches, its famous festivals, the old town of Le Suquet, the Forville market and the Rue d’Antibes. The beauty and the variety of landscapes of the hinterlands, the winter sport resorts 1 h away, the Mercantour National Park, the green hills and the small perched villages.
Our recommendation to see and to do on the Côte d’Azur:
Picasso Museum and its terraces overlooking the ramparts of Vauban,
The Lérins Islands (Sainte-Marguerite and Saint-Honorat with its monastery),
Maeght Foundation (in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, this museum is nested in a wood of hundred-year-old stone pines where the works of art of the greatest artists (Picasso, Giacometti, etc.) are mixed with the landscape and the views of the valley and the sea),
In Biot, the Verrerie de Biot and the Fernand Léger Museum,
The Vaugrenier Regional Nature Park,
The perched villages (Hauts-de-Cagnes, Aspremont, Saint-Jeannet, Carros-le-Vieux, etc.), t
The Principality of Monaco, Montecarlo and its aquarium and exotic garden,
Théoule-sur-Mer and the Esterel,
The summer music festivals (jazz in Nice, jazz in Juan-les-Pins, Les Heures Musicales in Biot, etc.) and many varied colourful Provencal markets.
With its central location on the Côte d’Azur, Antibes is a human-sized town where it is pleasant to move from a universe to another: from port Vauban to the ramparts, from the narrow streets of the old Antibes to the Islette and Cap d’Antibes and the lighthouse of La Garoupe, this charming small town will give you the opportunity to enjoy your holiday at your own pace. Of course, I am at your disposal by phone and by e-mail to give you advices and answer your information requests before and during your stay.
“Les Toits d’Antibes” welcomes you.
