We have just expanded our our 16th century house in the heart of the gorgeous old town of Antibes. We purchased a small house next door and can now offer three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a small outside roof terrace. We have added air-conditioning too.
The house can sleep 6 in beds, two on a really good sofa bed and, at a push, another 2 on self-inflating air mattresses, although 10 in the house is a squash.
The house is in the Rue Brulee, just off the Rue des Bains near the top of the old Marche Provencale. We now have a secure parking space in an underground car park about 400 metres from the house on the edge of the old town which guests can use for no extra charge- a real benefit in Antibes!
Students at Skema university are welcome for winter lets, as we have done successfully in the past - references available.
The house is minutes from beaches, cafes, restaurants, market, shops, the Picasso museum and the yachting marina yet is in a very quiet pedestrian street. It is also close to museums and the rampart wall of the old town which looks straight on to the sea. The house is on three floors with the middle one providing the main living room and kitchen, the upper one a bedroom and bathroom and the lower one a large vaulted-arched bedroom with bathroom which can accommodate several children. The property has all mod-cons such as TV, HI-FI, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.
Antibes is an exceptionally pretty place and has all the attractions of a historic old town such as a huge choice of cafes, restaurants and shops around the numerous pretty squares. It also offers the famous Picasso Museum, the cathedral, the Provencal market and the yachting marina.
PARKING is not easy in the old town and you can have a great holiday without a car or just rent one from the usual companies in the new town (Blvd Albert 1). We now have a parking space in the new underground car park by the port, a five minute walk from the house which guests are welcome to use for no extra charge.
Everything from beaches to sailing clubs to boat hire is right on your doorstep and transport links to Cannes, Nice, Monaco and Juan Les Pins are excellent, either by local bus or train. There is no need to have a car although car hire locations are close by.
Antibes is about 10 miles from Nice International Airport and is reachable either by taxi or bus. The bus is now only €1 per person from the airport! The Alps are only about 90 minutes away for mountain walking and the hills of Provence are even closer.
