About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This little gem is located right in the buzzing heart of Juan les Pins on the Côte d'Azur, France.

Juan les Pins is a bustling beach-side village/town nestled on the Cap d'Antibes peninsula in between Nice and Cannes on the French Riviera. It is a major holiday destination popular with the international jet-set and famous for its night-life with trendy shops, restaurants, cocktail bars, nightclubs, a casino and its long Mediterranean beaches and buzzing beach clubs. Juan les Pins (or JLP) is only 13 km from Nice International Airport which is accessible by 25 minute taxi ride or a 30 minute train.

The apartment is located 1 min walk from the beach and 15 seconds walk from the best restaurant street in Juan les Pins. It is on the first floor of a well maintained 1930’s building with a fantastic 7msq balcony that looks down on the alfresco dining restaurants and over to the ‘Jardin de la Pinede’ (Garden of the Pines) where the old French men play petanque all day. The gorgeous balcony is perfect for people watching night and day! It has been newly renovated in a modern Moroccan style with a brand new American kitchen and wooden laminate/parquet flooring throughout.

If youre interested in 'Jazz à Juan', Europe's oldest and internationally renowned jazz festival, you will be right in the thick of it! It is within the festival boundaries so you can sit on the balcony and listen to Jazz until the early hours without moving a muscle. Or if you have come to get amongst the fantastic shopping that Juan les Pins has to offer, you are in the epi-centre with the best ‘shopping street’ just around the corner at a 30 second walk. Then there is the nightlife, which is what draws many to this busy French jet-set seaside town. The bars and clubs are right on your doorstep so while your enjoying your wine down the way you can pop home to change your outfit or grab an extra layer in a second!

There is no need for a car in JLP as there are fantastic train and bus services running the length of the Côte d'Azur. If you want to visit the Picasso museum or the old 16th-century town of Antibes for the day it is just a short 15min walk up and over Boulevard Wilson to Plaza Charles de Gaulle, or there are busses which run regularly from the bus stop only 1 min walk around the corner, or the train station which is 5 mins walk. Alternatively, glamorous Cannes is only 6.5 kms (a short 10 minute train ride) away and magnificent Monaco is 30 kms or an hour by train.

Antibes-Juan les Pins: ' the only town on the Côte d'Azur not to have lost its soul!'

About Sylvia

We are two New Zealanders living and working in France. Greg is a yacht captain and Sylvia is a new Mum.

Sylvia purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Sylvia chose French Riviera (Cote d'Azur)

We just love Juan les Pins and have spent a lot of time there while working on the yachts. We wanted to buy a property we could live in as well as rent out and this location was perfect. It is right in the centre and close to restaurants, bars and the beaches. Our apartment is beautiful and light feeling and a great place to spend summer holidays.

What makes this apartment unique

We spend a lot of time playing petanque in the park over the road, loads of time at the local restaurants and bars and even more time at the beach at the end of the street. It feels like you are right amongst the action!

Just incredible

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I travelled from New Zealand and were thrilled to catch up with a fellow New Zealander in Juan les Pins. We had the most amazing time - the apartment is just perfect and we didn't want to leave. Thanks Sylvia for welcoming us, providing a perfect setting - and it was so nice to hear a kiwi accent. Hope the new baby is providing you with much joy! Until next time...

Air conditioned quiet amidst lively town center

  • 5 of 5

The delightful Sylvia from New Zealand carried my heavy valise up the stairs and sent me the dress I left behind. The rooms were spacious and the AC a God- send in the hot and humid weather. Right above a wonderful bakery and a popular fast-food place, the double doors shut out all noise from the near-by jazz club, throngs in the streets and PamPam with the great drinks. Super café you can see from the balcony and shopping galore at your fingertips. My dream beach club, Les Pirates, with its chic restaurant five minutes away. Clean & everything works. What more can you ask? Of three vrbo rentals this summer, this was the only one with direct contact with the owner. It is superbly located,

clean and, as the French say, "une trouvaille." a real find.

taking responsibility and no third party involved,

A éviter absolument!!!

  • 1 of 5

L'appartement est situé à l'intersection des bars et boîtes de nuit du côté de la Pinède. Il faut savoir que c'est assez bruyant le soir, mais très bruyant durant la nuit..

Le logement est par ailleurs situé au dessus de 2 restaurants Kebab, ce que la propriétaire s'est gardée de nous dire..

Il y a les odeurs de viande dès qu'on ouvre les fenêtres, mais aussi un autre problème qu'on ne pouvait soupçonner au départ..Les Cafards.

L'appartement est habité par des cafards et autres blattes, probablement dû aux restaurants du Rez-de-chaussée ou bien au mauvais entretien des parties communes, assez vétustes.

Une bombe anti-insectes est d'ailleurs présente dans l'appartement, ce qui laisse penser qu'il y avait déjà ce genre de problèmes avant notre arrivée.

Lorsque nous avons contacté Josey, (l'intermédiaire de Sylvia la propriétaire) pour lui signaler ce problème, elle nous a rétorqué que nous étions les premiers à trouver des cafards et que c'était probablement dû au fait que nous avions "laissé des ordures dans l'appartement"..

À aucun moment la propriétaire ou son intermédiaire sur place n'ont eu la délicatesse de se remettre en cause malheureusement.. Ajoutez à cela un manque total d'esprit commercial, aucun tact dans la relation client, une douche qui marche mal, un appartement pas insonorisé et vous obtenez une location qui vous a coûté déjà bien cher au vu de tous ces désagréments et dans laquelle la propriétaire tâchera de vous maintenir coûte que coûte..

Pour finir, importunés une fois de plus par ces problèmes d'insectes intempestifs, et ayant 2 enfants en bas âge, nous avons été obligés de quitter l'appartement avant la fin du séjour pour passer les nuitées restantes à l'hôtel.

Bon séjour aux plus courageux !

Owner's Response: This is the first negative review that we have ever had. As you can see above and elsewhere we have never had a review less than 4 stars out of about 15 plus reviews. Some guests (very few) seem to enjoy making as many problems as possible and unfortunately this was one of them. I knew right from the start that this booking would be problematic. We have always enjoyed meeting and hosting our guests and have had many repeat clients because of the service and wonderful apartment. If you would like more information about any of the problems that this guest mentioned, we are more than happy to answer your questions honestly. Or, you are very welcome to pose any questions to any of our previous guests on the review list. Please just ask, we would be most happy to help :)
