The train station which is a ten-minute walk from the apartment offers regular services to all of the towns along the coast. Both Cannes and Nice can be easily reached by train in 15 minutes. The inland towns are served by a regular bus service. The bus station is a two-minute walk from the apartment. The winter ski resort of Isola 2000 is c. 2-3 hours drive away.
Behind the ramparts, the centuries old 'Vieille Ville' has all the charm of a French Provençal village and attracts visitors throughout the year. Strolling through the towns narrow cobbled streets with its cafés and craft shops is a pleasure. The bustling Marche Provençal has a daily food market specialising in local produce. There is a vast choice of high quality restaurants which offer very good value and cater for all tastes. The Picasso Museum in the Grimaldi Castle displays the works which the artist created in Antibes in 1946.

"Nice little apartment in nice little town."
Good location in pedestrian area, very close to boulangeries, shops, cafes etc. The beaches and stations by walking distance as well. Apartment convenient, air cooling, refrigerator, washing machines worked well. TV wasn't working, slight inconvenience during TdF. WiFi would have been nice, too. Otherwise, we rented bicycles from Cafe du Cycliste in Nizza and rode a little bit around, Gordon, Col du Vence, Grasse and so, great roads to ride there, although close to Antibes-Nizza the traffic was little bit too heavy for our taste.

"Un petit bijou"
My husband and I stayed in this lovely little apartment. It has a very French feel to it. I put this down to the fact that you are in the very midst of a beautiful little rue ; every morning the smell of the boulangerie underneath as this sleepy street wakes up. Despite the fact that you are on the doorstep of this lovely old town it is extremely quiet after 10pm so that if you have exhausted yourself with a walk along the breathtaking seafront or perhaps have enjoyed a meal and a glass of wine at one of the many superb restaurants you will be able to return to your apartment and relax. There is plenty in antibes to visit but should you wish to venture a little further there are many beautiful places within easy reach.
The owners are extremely helpful. We will definitely book again.
We appreciate your taking the time to post a review on your stay in our apartment in Antibes. We are delighted to know that you had an enjoyable holiday.
