About Cephora

We have been coming down from Paris since I'm a teenager to breathe, relax and here, each of us could have fun.

10 years ago my parents found this jewel of apartment with the best views though calm. The parking is a blessing in high season as parking spaces are rare so close to the beaches.

I renovated the apartment in 2014 to make it available for other as I live in the United States. I come as much as I can. When I can't the place is yours and we are happy to share it with you.

Cephora purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Cephora chose Juan-les-Pins

This is a jewel because it is right on the beach but still quiet. Juan's beautiful warm sea, the nightclubs and museums created the perfect place for my vacations since I was 14. People are coming from everywhere, the world meets here.

It's in the middle of everything, the French Riviera, Italy is right there, the Alpes are 1hr away... Young adults, successful professional, life lovers retirees.. Everyone finds something fun to do here. This is truly great place to grow while having fun.

What makes this apartment unique

What's trully unique and wonderful are the fantastic views, and to be right across the street from the beach. The Palais du Tropique offers with free parking which is a true luxury. The building is slightly on the back which allows for more calm during the high season.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our American family of 4 stayed in Palais Tropical in Juan les pins for two weeks and enjoyed every moment of it! Our daughters (2yrs & 3 yrs old) enjoyed playing at the beautiful public beach directly across the street. The waves of the Mediterranean are very small, allowing for perfect playing time in the water for children. The apartment is in the middle of town with walking access to all the beach-front restaurants and shopping. When in the apartment, we enjoyed spectacular views of the water from both the living room and kitchen balconies. The apartment is fully furnished, with very modern amenities and A/C. The charming beach town of Juan les pins is centrally located in the French Riviera, allowing us to take day trips to St. Tropez, Cannes, Old Antibes, Nice, Eze, Cap Ferrat and even San Remo, Italy! We had my wonderful experience with Patrice. Patrice was especially helpful in arranging for cribs to be set up and in arranging for a babysitter so we could enjoy the Cote d'Azur by night!

I can't wait to plan our next trip there!

Exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly what we wanted - practically beachfront with great views, large balconies, very clean, well furnished and equipped. Juan-les-Pins has a great Blue Flag beach - both public and commercial. The public beach is literally across the road so no need to spend €20 to €40 a day in the private beaches. The water is clear and lovely for swimming.

We lacked for nothing in the apartment. If you are a more adventurous cook than I you might have needed some extras in the kitchen and i have no doubt that Alain would have provided. There were nice extras including a Nespresso machine, and also a couple of good quality carafes which please me as I always decant red wine, no matter whether its a cheap plonk or a Premier Cru -it always improves the taste.

There is excellent Wi-Fi which operated on 5 different devices we had. A tip - bring a HDMI cable for your laptop and you can connect it to the large flatscreen television so you can watch Netflix, Sky and other on-line tv and movies.

The only thing we asked for was a change of linen at the end of the first week and Alain promptly came and changed it himself. I read a review criticising a lack of bed linen - all that person had to do was ask.

As there were just the two of us we cannot comment on the sofa bed but the 2nd bedroom - made by pulling across wooden screens was well provided for with an ensuite shower and wc. By the way the two showers are excellent fixed overhead with additional hand held heads and good strong water pressure.

The apartment is within walking distance of all the attractions of this great Riviera resort. Buses and trains are also within walking distance and allow access to the entire French Riviera and beyond to Marseilles and Italy, and anywhere in France or beyond via Nice. No need for a car although a car space is included with the apartment.

The bedroom does overlook the railway line at the rear of the apartment, which can be quite busy but French trains are electric on smooth continuous track and are much quieter than the noisy diesels of Ireland and the USA, or the rattlers on the London railways, so our sleep was not interfered with , even with an open window.

We stayed June 3-17 and enjoyed every minute. Hope to be back again next year.

Nice property, great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice apartment in a great location close to all the amenities and a short walk to the station. There are supermarkets, restaurants and shops nearby and we found there was absolutely no need for a car because you can get to so many places by train and boat. Alain was extremely helpful and the apartment was very well stocked with essentials like tea, coffee, dishwasher tablets & towels (inc. beach towels). We used both balconies depending on the time of day and the inside space was very comfortable for the two of us. The sea at Juan-les-Pins is beautiful and clear and great for swimming. We enjoyed a lovely 2 week holiday here.

Not a good experience

  • 1 of 5

I don't know where I start this one. The owner is very communicative- I give her that... But coming off of such great French hospitality in Antibes, Provence, Paris- this place falls short. There are no sheets- just one per the ONE bed they have. The other is for the sleeper sofa. The other bedroom is not correct as it is an Ikea lounge bed with a sheet thrown over it. My daughter ended up on the sleeper sofa and us in the back bedroom- so technically this is a one bedroom with a pull out couch and a lounge chair. The view is amazing - I agree - but as the other review mentions, there is NIO spiral staircase off of the kitchen at all. I don't know what this reviewer was thinking- maybe another place? There is a deck off the kitchen but the view is awful and riddled with cranes and noise that starts at 8am in the morning. The chair on the front deck was broken and we communicated this to Alain but it was never fixed. So we never sat on the front deck and just dined out. It was an okay cleaning on arrival- but no soap, shampoo- nothing. There were also no beach towels so we had to reach out to Alain and he gave us 3. I would not recommend not return.

Lovely property right in the heart of the resort.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, spacious apartment which allows very easy access to the beach. Very clean and especially well equipped. Alain was extremely helpful and shared his local knowledge. He was also very accommodating about departure times to assist with our late flight times. Although the apartment has one bedroom, it was spacious enough for our family of five. The sofa bed was very easy to put up and down and the little room behind the Japanese screens was just like another bedroom. The two large terraces with excellent views lent real space to the property. My only problem with the front balcony was that it houses the air conditioning unit which acts like a heater. In 33 degree heat, that wasn't too comfortable!

Nevertheless, beautiful apartment in easy walking distance of all amenities. Great for families who love the beach. Juan Les Pins is a busy resort without the sophistication of its neighbour Antibes but it is centrally located to allow easy access to all other places of interest on the Cote D'Azur.

I would certainly recommend this apartment. Many thanks to Alain and Cephora.

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay in this apartment, the photos do not tell the whole story. The two large balconies have full ocean view, the apartment is stocked with anything you need (beach towels, shopping basket, beach umbrella etc), the two bathrooms are modern and clean. the apartment is very spacious, nicely decorated and plenty of room for our two teenagers. Beds and sheets were of great quality. The beach is across the street. We enjoyed day trips to Cannes and Monaco (train station is within a short walk). Alain answered any questions we had and we were well taken care of. We highly recommend this apartment and would love to come back.

Fabulous location, great roomy condo, with terraces that have unbelievable views!!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are very accurate on VRBO for this condo, except it doesn't do justice for the the views from the top terrace. You go up a typically French windy circular staircase from the terrace that is off of the kitchen/dining/living room, and you are on top of the world!! There is a huge terrace, very private with 360 degree views over Cap d'Antibes, Antibes, Old Antibes, and of course the Sea!!

The condo is very spacious, with very large comfortable beds, a bathroom within the master, and another full bathroom in the hallway.

You are walking distance to everything, yet has plenty of parking should you have a rental car.

I give this place a 99percent, and we are well traveled American's that travel all over America and Europe. My only reason for the missing 1 percent is that I don't believe the condo was "stocked" properly on our arrival. We also have rental properties, and perhaps I am picky, but it would have been nice if we had been provided the following items upon our check in: there was a little bit of liquid soap in the kitchen, but none at all in any of the bathrooms, sinks or showers, there was only the one garbage bag in the kitchen, with none as backup, there was very little toilet paper, no were no napkins or paper towels, the sponge for the kitchen sink was disgusting dirty and smelly, and there were no tissues. These were very small items, as I have said that the place was a fabulous condo, but it just meant that my 1st night there I had to go out and find a store to purchase these items.

Our communications with both the property manager and the owner were excellent.
