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 French Riviera (Cote d'Azur)

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.

Superb apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

This splendid one-bedroom apartment on the Plage de Salis, one of two major beaches in Antibes, has been a singular discovery. The apartment is open and airy during the warm months, and at all times the light shoots through the apartment. However, plenty of doors can close it off to create separate rooms that provide privacy for multiple guests. As others have noted, it is very close to Vieil Antibes, a quick and easy walk, and the newer shopping areas, but it is far enough to offer solitude and quiet during the evening hours. A navette stops every half hour outside the apartment and provides quick access to the bus terminal which straddles the older and newer parts of Antibes. One of my favorite restaurants La Romarin is nearby as is the popular patisserie l'Illette. A well regarded restaurant is attached to the building; it overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. One balcony is an asset. Two full balconies, one for the morning and the other for the evening, makes for an embarrassment of riches. Diana, the owner, is a gracious, honest, energetic, and funny host. She will do what she can to make your stay comfortable and fun.

We are just back from a wonderful weeks stay in Dianas beautiful apartment, the apartment has everything you could want to make your perfect holiday. The location is superb, right across from a lovely beach, and a 10 min walk into the old town of Antibes. We will definitely be staying again and for longer hopefully. Diana is a wonderful host and does everything to make your holiday as perfect as possible

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.
