The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
We have had day trips to Avignon, Arles, with its associations with Van Gogh, and the nature reserve of the Carmargue. Aix en Provence, under 2 hours away, is beautiful, as are the many towns, villages and perched villages in the mountains. In the Mercantour national park towards Italy there are wonderful walks.
Concerts and events are organized throughout the year along the Cote d'Azur, and there are countless excellent museums and galleries. Nice and Cannes are great locations and easy to get to. Must sees are the beautiful villages of St Paul de Vence and Mougins - famous for art (and restaurants in Mougins), and Grasse for its perfume factories. St Tropez and the Lerins Islands can be visited by car or day return boat trip. Monte Carlo and the Italian Riviera both within the hour.
For skiing, Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron are all within reach for a day trip. The Verdon Gorge, the largest in Europe, is a dramatic sight, with many watersports available such as kayaking and rafting.
The lovely beaches of Juan Les Pins are 15 mins walk away. Jazz à Juan is one of the top jazz festivals in the world which is held in July, only 20 mins walk from the apartment. Sitting on the beach having a meal or a drink, the sea lapping at your feet is an experience not to be missed!
Old Antibes has a food market every day, and a craft market several times a week. It is a charming, lively town bursting with wonderful restaurants and enticing shops.
Cannes, famous for the Film Festival and glamour, is 20 minutes away by car or train. there is also a bus from the bottom of the hill to Cannes or Nice, for just 1 euro. Nice has beautiful architecture, many museums and a famous promenade. Also the best ice cream parlours. It is about 15 km away and can be reached by a regular train service or by bus.

"Fab apartment in good location with great facilities and pool"
Had one of our best holidays ever as a family and would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. The pool is great, very good size and depth for kids, tennis is a bonus! There is every shop you need and a great poizza restaurant on the complex though the patisserie was not too good for our waistlines! Its about a 15 minute walk to Antibes with kids, downhill on way, uphill on way back but worth the walk as is a beautiful town. Juan Le Pains is a little further but is also a good place to visit.
The apartment has the most amazing views. It is spacious and clean and has all utilities required.
We will definetly go again :)

"Fabulous apartment and pool, spectacular views"
Booked the apartment at the last minute so weren't sure what to expect but from the very first contact Rena could not have been more helpful. She maintained regular e-mail contact and made sure nothing was left to chance for our arrival.
We didn't hire a car as transport links to the property are very good and cheap. We got the express bus (ligne 250) from Nice Airport and a local bus (ligne 8) from the stop the express bus drops off at in Antibes. On return we took the slower airport bus (ligne 200) so we could see a bit more of the area.
The apartment itself is very spacious and comfortable - there were 4 of us but it sleeps 6. The kitchen is well appointed and the bed in the main bedroom very good quality. The free wi-fi also comes in very handy. The pool is very big and there are 2 tennis courts - deck chairs, a lounger, 2 tennis rackets and balls are provided in the apartment. The highlight though has to be the views. Being on the top floor of the block it commands the most spectacular views of Antibes, the coast round to Nice and the mountains in the background. Simply stunning.
The location of Roi Soleil is good. It is easy to get to Antibes and Juan Les Pins, either walking or a short bus ride, and there are local shops with everything you need. We also did day trips to Ventimiglia, Nice and Cannes by train and bus which are frequent and good value.
A memorable week - will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am so delighted that you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to you staying again in the not too distant future!

Stunning views, great location with easy access to everything, beautiful pool. Rena was very helpful with detailed instructions on how to get there, and heaps of information on the area. Very relaxing holiday for us all.
Thank you for your kind review, I am so happy you enjoyed your stay in my apartment. I always do my best to make it feel special so I really appreciate your comments. I hope you decide to come and stay again in the future! All the best, Rena.

"Lovely lovely place with fantastic views"
Owner of property very easy to deal with - everything was exactly as I was told.
Apartment very spacious with everything you would need for a self catering holiday, it was clean and tidy.
Buses available right on the doorstep or town within walking distance.
Could not fault it at all.
Fab pizza restaurant right downstairs with shops for food, fantastic bakery if you can get there early enough in the morning the selection is out of this world and the breads are amazing.
Internet worked and I got my deposit back in full!
Thank you for your comments, it is a great area with lots of things to do and great transport so I'm glad you managed to take advantage of that and that you were happy with the apartment. I look forward to you returning soon. All the best, Rena
