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.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Ivan is a fantastic host. We arrived late, but he patiently waited for us. He helped us arrange transportation to the airport and checked in on us throughout our stay and is just extremely pleasant and caring. Upon our arrival he had a bottle of wine waiting for us along with a platter of local delicacies! The location of the apartment couldn't be better - close to beaches and the old market with lovely top floor views of the old town and the sea. The kitchen was well equipped as was the entire house. We had a great stay!

A beautiful place to relax in Antibes

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a lovely stay at Maison de la Tour. Ivan is a very gracious host who helped get our holiday started in just the right way with a welcome platter of savory and baked goods from a local Boulangerie. The townhouse is extremely well appointed with everything we needed for a week next to the Mediterranean. The sunsets from the top terrace are spectacular to watch. A local market and lovely shops are just steps away. Be sure to stop by Café Milano for a delicious meal. We loved our time in Antibes and Ivan went out of his way to make it feel special.

Beautiful home with an exceptional host.

  • 5 of 5

The house is quite accurately pictured in the listing. What's not apparent until you get there is how thoroughly and beautifully equipped it is. The host spared no effort to make everything as perfect as possible to suit our changing configuration of guests. I have rented many charming places around the world through VRBO. None topped this for quality, completeness and ease of quickly addressing any issue that came up. Bravo Ivan for creating and caring for this exquisite seaside home. It's perfectly located near the daily market and close to a remarkable collection of wonderful small restuarants. We brought our sailboat to Port Vauban for our stay, so day sailing was a primary activity. It hardly gets better than having a lovely day on the water, capped with cocktails on the roof deck with its sensational view.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This property exudes style, charm and relaxed Riviera chic. A wonderful stay is assured. The attention to detail in the house is exceptional, and it is impeccably provisioned. Ivan couldn't have been more helpful before, during and after our stay. It made for a perfect, comfortable & special vacation.

Fantastic!! Exceeded ALL expectations! Dignified, home-like luxury in the best location possible!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully renovated 17th century home, steps from the local food market and many great restaurants in Vieil Antibes. Rooftop terrace has phenomenal views of the Mediterranean and Antibes. Beds very comfortable! Ivan is extremely helpful and provided great recommendations for activities and assistance with reservations! Would definitely stay here again!

We've stayed in MANY holiday homes all around the world and this rates as one of the best we have experienced! Beyond the couldn't-be-better location (proximity and character) and lovely house, Ivan has provided so much attention to detail to make this the model for all rentals. Creature comforts abounded from Apple TV and Netflix in all rooms, to high end kitchen appliances and cutlerly. Even the shampoo and body wash in well designed bathrooms.

Lots of stairs but good to work off all the great food we ate just steps away😀?

Charming, comfortable and well-equipped pied-a-terre in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here enjoying Antibes and it's surrounds. This house is a charming base from which to do this. There are so many great things about it, it's hard to know where to start!

The location is superb. Within a couple of minutes walk you can be shopping the fabulous Provençal market, sipping a coffee or beer in a sidewalk cafe, picking up a great bottle of wine for dinner, or standing on the sea wall looking out at the waves.

The house is delightful, charmingly decorated throughout, comfortable and well equipped for gourmet cooking amazing meals with your market purchases. The roof terrace with its great views and comfortable seating is a great escape at the end of the day to relax in.

Antibes itself is great walking town, you really don't need a car here, and there is lots to do in walking range, or you can take the "petit train" to Juan-les-Pins for a change of scene. You'll be getting plenty of exercise between strolling around, and climbing the stairs of this house - from the basement to the roof terrace you'll be climbing five flights of stairs!

Finally, Ivan was a great host to us. He greeted us on arrival and made us feel very welcome, with some thoughtful gifts, and lots of help.
