Overview

About the property

3 bedroom/3 bathroom (sleeps 6) townhouse in old Antibes, sea view roof terrrace

Maison de la Tour is a 17th century town house in the oldest part of Antibes which is also a quiet pedestrian area. It has been fully renovated combining Provençal charm with all modern amenities.

It is the perfect base to explore the Cote d'Azur, just relax and/or prepare wonderful meals throughout the year. This unique and spacious house with its private en-suite bathrooms suits couples or families with children.

This 3 floor town house is situated in a lovely pedestrian area, just behind Porte de l'Orme, one of the ancient city gates in the oldest part of Antibes, a stone throw from the covered Provençal market, the Picasso museum, the harbor, the sea and of course, many excellent local restaurants and shops. The closest public beach is just 2 minutes walk away.

From the exceptional sun kissed roof terrace, you will be able to enjoy a 360 degree view over Vieil Antibes, the sea , the mountains and even Nice and Cap Ferrat. The stylish lounge/dining area, which comfortably sits 6, has wonderful dim-able lighting for the evening and a large parasol to protect you from the sun during the hotter hours of the day. It is the perfect place to have breakfast, dine or just relax after a day on the beach. The large Weber gas barbecue (E320 Classic) allows you to have nice grill parties "with a view".

Maison de la Tour retains many period features like white-washed wooden ceilings and beams, oak doors, terracotta and traditionally painted cement tiles. One of the rooms even has a vaulted ceiling and a working, antique wood burning fire place.

Each of the double bedrooms (chambre des drapeaux has 2 twin beds 90x200, chambre des rames has a brass king-size bed 160x200 and chambre de l'ancre has a brass super king-size bed 180-200) has its own stylish bathroom (2 with large shower cabins and one with a bathtub/shower) with retro, chrome fittings. The finest Egyptian cotton linen and high quality towels, including beach towels, have been chosen for your comfort. Each of them also has a flat screen TV, a DVD player (multi-regional), Apple TV and a subscription to Netflix. Wifi is available throughout the house including the roof terrace.

The large modern living kitchen/dining room is situated on the 3rd floor, just below the roof terrace. It has been equipped with every gadget an amateur chef needs to prepare a perfect meal with local delicacies bought in the nearby Provençal market. It also includes 2 large fridges, one of them a Liebherr with an ice maker to ensure that you can enjoy properly chilled drinks.

I offer a personalised concierge service making your stay in this beautiful place a unique experience.

Please note that we welcome new mums and to this effect have purchased a new crib available in Maison de la Tour.

Why Maison de la tour chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

Vieil Antibes , where Maison de la Tour is located is a pedestrian area and the most beautiful and historic part of town The sea, the Provencal market and the Picasso museum are less than 5 minutes walk from the house. It is the perfect base to explore the South of France.

What makes this house unique

The many period features combined with all modern amenities will provide you with a unique holiday experience.

Personally , when I first saw the house, I fell in love with the roof terrace from which one has a wonderful view over the old town, the sea and the mountains. To me it is a truly amazing place to relax and/or dine.

Tastefully decorated and imaginatively renovated

  • 5 of 5

It has everything you look for: first, and most important, a helpful and friendly owner (well traveled, multi-lingual and interesting to talk with); second, a wonderful place, an old townhouse, completely renovated and imaginatively furnished with five floors (allowing privacy) and the best rooftop terrace in sight – an outdoor dining area with grill, giving a 360 degree view, over the Mediterranean, the rooftops of Antibes and the Alps in the distance: and third, the perfect location - on a quiet cobblestone pedestrian way in the center of old town - allowing you to explore every nook of old Antibes – two minutes from the central market, four minutes from the Cathedral, 3 minutes from the Picasso museum, 10 minutes from the beaches. (I joked with the owner that I was tempted to make a negative comment because I wanted to make sure it would not quickly become so popular that I would not be able to rent it again.) If the use of superlatives seems excessive, they are warranted. The stay was five star in every respect.

Perfect Location – Beautiful Home – Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

What more could you ask more – positioned within the old town, this beautiful home is only a one minute walk to the covered markets, a few minutes to Antibes beach and a few more minutes to the Antibes shopping precinct. All three bedrooms have their own bathroom so whilst we were a family of four with grandparents, the home would work equally well for 3 couples. The beds are super comfortable and the linen and towels first class. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could want for and the dining/living area relaxing and very well decorated. As for the roof terrace: well we virtually lived there. Yes the views are fantastic but it has also been well equipped to make a very comfortable eating and relaxing area. It was just wonderful to go up there to watch the sunrise over the water and then return again at the end of the day to enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching the sunset over the hills. We did of course get out during the day: there is so much to see on the Côte d'Azur by using Antibes as a base.

Ivan was the perfect host in every possible way, going above and beyond our expectations. Finally, there is secure covered parking available at a reasonable cost only a 5 minute walk away which if carparks were graded, is as good as they get.

We had a fabulous stay at Maison de la Tour and hope we may find the opportunity to return one day soon.

Schönes und geschmackvolles Haus!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wundervollen Aufenthalt im schönen Maison de la Tour. Das Haus ist sehr gut gelegen, um die Altstadt zu erkunden oder zum kleinen Strand zu gelangen. Die Dachterrasse bietet einen herrlichen Blick über die Dächer von Antibes bis hin zum Meer. Das Haus ist sehr stilsicher und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, und es ist alles sehr gepflegt und sauber. Der Besitzer Ivan ist äusserst zuvorkommend und bereitet einen sehr herzlichen Empfang. Wir kommen gerne wieder, merci pour tout! Susanna und Uli

Look no further

  • 5 of 5

The property is even better than described. We were 3 couples and there was plenty of room for all of us with the 3 bedrooms and en suites. The location can not be beat and Ivan was a wonderful resource and manager. We will definitely be going back. Yes...there are stairs...and the roof top patio is worth every step. We cannot say enough about this wonderful property. Thank you Ivan for sharing your home with us.

Magical holiday

  • 5 of 5

La Maison de la Tour is even more beautiful in reality than in the photos. Its location in the old town is perfect - everything you need is close by and yet it is quiet. My sister and I enjoyed being so close to the beach for an early morning dip before breakfast at a great coffee shop. We also enjoyed shopping each day at the wonderful provencal market and local shops such as the boulangerie. We fell in love with La Maison and with Antibes. It was particularly hot for September so we enjoyed the comfort and luxury of all the facilities in la Maison. We loved the wonderful roof terrace especially in the balmy evenings. We enjoyed preparing meals using the local produce and of course there are good restaurants nearby as well.

Ivan was lovely to deal with and to meet. He was so welcoming friendly and thoughtful - nothing was too much trouble. Thank you very much Ivan for everything - we can't wait to return....
