ATRIBORD in Old Antibes
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 6
BEST LOCATION IN OLD TOWN : in the authentic heart of the old village, in the calm carless medieval part on historical Greek and Roman ground, near the luxurious yacht marina (100m) and sand beach (150m).
It is a charming one bedroom apartment (35m2) situated on the ground floor of a traditional and newly renovated styled townhouse.
Officially rated 4 stars tourist accommodation, it is newly renovated (2012) with a fully equipped american kitchen (refrigerator, freezer, tumble dryer, washing machine, dish washer, oven/grill, microwave and hotplates, etc.), a separate bedroom, a bathroom and lounge with TV.
The bathroom offers a shower, toilet and hand basin.
A full-size double bed, 2 single beds and a fold out sofa caters for up to 4 people comfortably (max 6 people), making it ideal for young couples or families.
All the apartment has a cool temperature all year long (specially in summer) because of the air-conditioning.
It offers a high-speed Internet WIFI connection (free of charge) and fresh bed linen and towels are provided.
Nestled neatly away from the noise in a quiet street but superbly situated nevertheless (still just seconds from where the action is), the house has everything on its doorstep. Just around two corners you can buy fresh food at the Provencale daily market and you'll be on the white sandy beaches in no time (150m), or the luxurious yacht-harbour (100m).
Everything you can need (shops, restaurants, pubs, museum, sandy beaches, yacht marina, etc.) is very close at hands, just a few seconds from the apartment.
It is also located near many bus stops and SNCF train station (with a T.G.V. stop) at 10mn walk, to all cities around.
A vehicle is not needed but a parking space, very close to the house (5mn walk, at the pleasure boat port), is also available for the tenant with an additional charge. It is strongly recommended in summer because of less parking free places.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
OUR CORNER of Provence (the coastal strip from Monaco to Marseille) has the best climate in France and arguably the best in Europe, being more temperate than the more Southerly parts of the continent. We enjoy over 300 days of sunshine a year and have the good fortune of benefitting from both the warming effect of the Mediterranean and the blocking effect of the Alps, so when the rest of France has bad weather, we often have bright sunshine and cloudless skies. Of course it can and does rain or we wouldn't have such beautiful, lush scenery, but it usually means a quick downpour from a storm and rarely lasts long. The best time to visit depends very much on personal preference. With so much sunshine, you have a good chance it will be bright and sunny almost all of the time, so an escape to the Mediterranean from a bleak English autumn and winter makes an ideal break. You are more likely to have a day or so of rain between November and February than in July, but this is also when you benefit from the greatest contrast with N. Europe as daily temperatures can climb to over 20ºC. April, May and September are warm and sunny (18-28ºC), and if you like the hot days and fabulous long summer evenings, June to early September is the time to come, when temperatures invariably range from 20ºC to 35ºC. Swimming in the pool generally starts in mid-May and goes on until September, weather permitting, while you can swim happily in the sea from mid-late May into November.
HOME to some of the largest private yachts in Europe, Antibes boasts a very large port and old town village. Quaint stone paved streets and alleys provide the tourist with hours of exploration. For those seeking tradition, or maybe just some fresh fruit and vegetables a Provencale market is held every morning in Market square, just opposite the Picasso museum.
This medieval village is shielded to the South/East by a wall, used originally to protect its inhabitants from passing sea voyagers. A short walk along the old town walls and you will find Gravette beach. This secluded beach is protected by wave barriers and is ideal for young children. A few minutes further along the old-town wall and you will find Salis beach, which serves as the grand entrance to the famous Cap d'Antibes. Cap d'Antibes is a millionaire's playground, boasting the most expensive real estate in the region. It is not uncommon for Hollywood celebrities to be spotted dining or relaxing in this secluded and tree-lined cape.
Antibes offers a wide choice in the evening, ranging from traditional Irish pubs, café bars and nightclubs to exquisite French, Italian and Asian cuisine.
Most activity is centred around the old town, and is all within a stone's throw of our Antibes townhouse.Antibes is a 15 minutes drive to Cannes, 25 minutes to Nice airport and about 1 hour to Monte Carlo, the Gorges de Verdon and St. Tropez.
