Why Kristina Lancashire chose Antibes Old Town
We bought the apartment from new because we loved the location and the town.

100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Very nice and elegant property with good location. Garage entrance maybe not for the largest cars though. But we were made aware in addvance, so we were prepared.
Classy apartment in a good location.
Apartment was even nicer than the pictures indicate. Well situated. Close to restaurants, groceries, and old town. Bus stops are conveniently located near the apartment. Felt very safe both at this apartment and in Antibes. The vehicle road sounds make the apartment a bit noisy but some white noise from a sound machine cures that. Responsive owners. We would definitely return.
Nice apartment very convenient for the town and Antibes beaches.
A very nice 3rd floor apartment on a fairly busy street. Has a nice balcony to sit out on and air conditioning to keep it cool. It was clean and well presented. Close to the old and new areas on the town but also the Antibes beaches. In many ways the ideal spot to be. A bit noisy due to the traffic. Multiple high quality restaurants within easy walking distance.
Perfect in so many ways!
Our experience was the same as the others who reviewed this apartment: lovely, bright, well-equipped, comfortable, well located. I will add some of our favorite features: 1) On Thursday mornings there is a street market along Rue Albert 1er where vendors sell clothing, jewelry, hats, bags, shoes, cosmetics, and just about everything else! It’s fun for shopping and people-watching. 2) Although the flat faces south and east and is very bright, there are excellent shades that create a very dark sleeping environment. 3) Only steps from a bistro facing the sea called Le Phenicia which serves fabulous Libanese Lemonade (virgin or with a shot of your favorite spirit).
I would stay here again and recommend it to friends.
A fabulous apartment close to the beach, town centre and a host of good cafes and restaurants. Exactly as shown in the photos, the apartment is spacious, comfortable and well equipped and we really enjoyed having breakfast out on the sunny balcony each morning. John and Kristina provided really helpful instructions regarding directions around the area and also about which restaurants were good and which to avoid. The main beach was an easy walk, as was the local supermarket and old town. We even woke up one morning to find the local markets had set up very conveniently in the street below! We would definitely choose to book the apartment again (we do hope to come back again to Antibes – this was our second visit and we love the town) and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
