Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

Located 3 blocks from the Mediterranean Sea in one of Antibe's newest, most prestigious, secure buildings. The building, '26 Albert Ier', is in the heart of the most desirable section of Antibes. This 3-bedroom apartment is on the 6th floor, (the 5th etage), in a new luxury building, with an elevator to its 8 stories and parking garage. The view from the apartment's very large front balcony, which has an al fresco dining table, includes the sea, the mountains, the Old City, and parts of Antibes' center, the Place de Gaulle.

The charming and historic city of Antibes was founded by the Greeks c. 500 B. C., and then became part of the Roman Empire c. 150 B.C. The old portion of the City, which is 2 blocks to the east of the apartment, is still partially surrounded by magnificent 17th century ramparts.

The apartment is located in the most convenient part of Antibes, and makes a perfect home base from which to explore the City itself, and also, on either day trips or overnight stays, to explore the entire Cote d'Azur, as well as Provence.

The apartment consists of 3 bedrooms, one of which has a queen-sized bed and an en suite bathroom, with the other 2 bedrooms each having 2 twin beds. All bedrooms have French doors leading to either the front or rear balconies. Other rooms include a living room, a kitchen, a dining area, a second bathroom and a separate W.C. Furnishings are a tasteful mix of antique and contemporary pieces. There is an underground parking garage, with a private garage door securing the apartment's enclosed parking space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bill,



We had a wonderful stay in Antibes. Your apartment was perfect - spotlessly clean, comfortable and more spacious than it seems from the photos. We loved staying so close to the centre, as on our previous visits we have always had to drive into town. Access was very smooth with the wheelchair. We managed to get our 7-seater car into the garage too, which we were not expecting from reading your notes. My husband was very proud of his parking skills!



Kind regards!

Visit to Antibes

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent five nights in this lovely apartment. It is updated and very convenient to the Old Town and beaches. Working with Bill was a pleasure. We have been to Antibes at least six times and renting online has always been a luck of the draw, especially with the bathrooms. This apartments is a sure thing!

We definitely would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting in the area.

Wonderful spacious appartment close to all local amenities

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed being based in Antibes. Great restaurants within walking distance and lovely walks around the old town. Railway station fairly close which meant we could travel further up the coast for day trips. Nice to come back to appartment and sit out on the balcony.

Excellent apartment in Antibes.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfectly situated between the old city and the beaches. A 15 min walk to the train station will get you up and down the coast. The place was very clean, nicely decorated, very comfortable. Everything we needed was provided. Bill was very helpful and sent detailed information ahead of time. You really can't go wrong with this apartment if you want to stay in Antibes. Highly recommend!

Great home base to see the French Riviera!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this beautiful condominium just steps to the Mediterranean Sea. It was beautifully furnished, ultra clean and thoughtfully stocked with all the comforts of home. It also had a large balcony with a great view of the sea and three bedrooms (took me awhile to locate one with 3). It also had an indoor parking space.

The days we stayed in the area we never got into our car. We walked to the beach, the grocery store, the downtown, the Old Town section and (the highlight of my week), the Picasso Museum.

The other days we took day trips to Monaco, a perfumerie in Fragonard, Canne, and a beach club. All were easy destinations from Antibe.

We hope to return to the area again and would not hesitate to return to this property.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our one-week trip to Antibes. It was a perfect walking distance to everything you need, but perfectly situated enough distance from the crowds of tourists. Communication leading up to our stay was easy, and we didn't have any hiccups while we were there. The apartment is clean, simple, and stocked with everything you need. We also really appreciated that we had a kitchen and beautiful balcony, so we could prepare meals, save a little money, and still enjoy a great view! We loved coming home from a day of sightseeing, stopping at the market on our way home, and having some cheese and wine outside! I'd highly recommend staying here.

Fabulous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Antibes is magical and this apartment is so perfectly located that we never even bothered to rent a car until we left for Provence. The location of the apartment is central to everything! Old town and great restaurants are just a short walk away. Our favorite part of each day was walking from the apartment in the late afternoon down to the small public beach. We would take a swim and just sit on the beach and watch the local families interact. The beach is at the bottom of the street and there is a taxi stand across the street from the apartment that can take you to the beaches and resorts in Juan les Pins.

My husband and I decided to try the train to Cannes and were blown away by how easy it was to walk 10 minutes to the train station, hop on a train that came every 20 minutes and arrive in Cannes in less than 10 minutes. A three block walk from the train put us right on the Promenade in Cannes! No hassle with parking!!!

As for the apartment itself, it has everything you could need, a fully equipped kitchen, laundry and three comfortable bedrooms. There is also a lovely balcony overlooking the city where we had breakfast each morning. The building is very attractive and well maintained.

We are already contemplating our next trip to Antibes and definitely plan to rent this apartment again!
