About Diana Shenk

We are from Portland and Paris. Love the Cote d'Azur, and particularly our area.

Diana Shenk purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Diana Shenk chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

We chose this apt. because of its location and the beautiful town of Antibes, which has everything a vacationer dreams of. A charming and historic town center, with a unique and famous fresh-produce market, and endless charm, while Plage de La Salis, where the apt. is located is very calm with year-around residents.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to everything. Trains, grocery stores, many parks, public transportation, and buses taking you to all the neighboring town and villages. You can wear your bathing suit, add a pareo and head on out to walk across the road to a beach that is among the seven best beaches in the Riviera.

A lovely apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Diana'a apartment is in a great location.It's just 2 minutes across the road to the beach.It is a lovely 20 minute walk around the headland to Antibes with great viewpoints-there is also a bus available every 30 minutes for 1 euro to travel into Antibes.It ia also in a great position to walk to Juan les Pins and around the Cap d'Antibes.We used the train from Antibes to travel to Nice,Cannes,Grasse.The train service was punctual and reasonably priced.

The apartment has everything needed for your stay .It was lovely to have a balcony at the front and one at the back to enjoy the sun at all times and the canopies which could cover the balconies were helpful for shade when it was very hot.There was a basket of fruit and a bottle of wine to welcome us which we really appreciated.

Diana was very helpful when we booked and before we travelled giving us travel advice.Valerie was very helpful when we arrived at the apartment explaining how everything worked and showing us the pool.

We really enjoyed our stay and would love to visit again.

Great Apartment and Owner

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Diana's apartment for the past two years, most recently for the month of September 2014. It is lovely with all of the amenities you need for a wonderful, relaxing experience in Antibes. It has been spotless when we arrived with a bowl of fruit and bottle of wine to greet us. The location is excellent for day trips around the Riviera and for enjoying all that Antibes has to offer. We are returning for a month in 2015. Diana is a delightful person and very attentive to the needs of renters. We could not have asked for a better experience and are looking forward to our return.

Three months in Antibes

  • 5 of 5

J’adore l’appartement de Diana ! For three years now during the winter months, I have stayed in Diana’s apartment in Antibes. Would I return if I did not like it? In fact, I have already spoken to her about returning next year.

Most visitors spend their time in Antibes, which is a short walk, maybe 15 minutes, from La Plage de la Salis (the beach) and her apartment to the center of town. However, I recommend also walking the other way to Juan-les-Pins. It is the same distance. There you will find a more expansive beach, more restos along and on the beach, a wonderful café called the Café de la Plage, my favorite cafe spot, where you can wile away the hours looking at the Mediterranean Sea and the sunset, if you go later into the afternoon, of course.

You don’t want to walk anywhere? You want to kick back, read, get a sun tan, and not have to fuss with finding a restaurant. No problem. Her apartment is a half block from the sandy beach. In the same building on the corner and across from the beach is an excellent restaurant with a chef who worked once in a starred restaurant. On another corner is a pizza place. A short walk away (5 minutes) is a pastry and sandwich place and next to it is one of my favorite restaurants in Antibes, Le Romarin. Go to the beach, get a sun tan, take a step or two to the resto, eat a wonderful meal, return to the beach and catch a few more rays. Not bad for a vacation.

My other favorite part of staying in Diana’s apartment, apart from the many, many restaurants in Antibes and Juan-les-Pins, is the public transportation system. It is so easy to take the little navette #14, which stops at the apartment building, to the train station, and then to hop a train to Nice or Monaco or Italy or to go the other direction to Cannes or to Saint Raphael and catch a boat to St Tropez.

I have been comfortable in the apartment. It has a full kitchen, two full balconies, shiny marble floors that are very cool during the hot summers months, wall sized windows that can open to let the breeze blow through the rooms. Diana has done an excellent job of making the apartment a very desirable place to stay on the Riviera.

A Stellar apartment..no exceptions

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose Diana's apartment primarily because of her exuberance and honesty. We spent our 38th anniversary in her bright and airy apartment for 6 nights and relished every minute of its proximity to the beach, shops, and restaurants. We enjoyed cooking in her fully equipped kitchen and dining on the delightful front terrace overlooking the water. Charm abounds in her apartment along with all the amenities she provides; the huge flat screen TV, cable (with CNN), DVD/CD, and free WiFi internet connection, music, telephone, and truthfully everything Diana mentions in her apartment's description is available. We anticipate staying in her apartment next year. Our friends did not believe our pictures exactly matched what she put in her description. We did not want to leave.

Great Apartment and Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Diana's apartment in Antibes for a month during September and October. The apartment was very secure and had everything we needed for an extended stay including a well stocked kitchen, large refrigerator, nice linens, very comfortable bed, WiFi, flat screen tv, music CDs, and a washing machine. The location is excellent for seeing all of the sights while having a quiet and spacious place to return to each day. The apartment is right across the street from the beach with a fabulous patisserie a block away. Even in warm weather the apartment was cool with excellent cross ventilation. We could not have been more pleased and loved it so much we are returning again next year! Diana was very helpful in providing us with information from the minute we booked the apartment and was very responsive to any requests we had. We highly recommend this property.

Wonderful Apartment , Super Location

  • 5 of 5

We should have written this before as we just loved Diana's apartment . We have just contacted her as we want to book it for a week in June 2014

Everything was wonderful- the view , the two terrasses, and the spacious aprtment , the bathroom , the beautiful china

We loved the beach being just across the road

It was only a short walk to old town . although the navette 14 was supposed to come , it was unreliable. . Just as well, as we needed the exercise.

This is the only apartment we want to return to - we have booked every year for last 6 years on Cote d' Azur and there was always something wrong .

Thanks Diana
