The flat is equipped with air-conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter.

My apartment has a portable wi-fi system (for which you need to buy a prepaid top-up locally). This is extremely convenient as it means that you can have wi-fi both in the apartment and also carry it around with you during the day.

There is a balcony with a table and four chairs ideal for eating breakfast and lunch. There are also four recliners to relax on and soak up the sun. The balcony receives the sun from mid-morning to mid/late afternoon (depending on the time of year). And of course the nearest Antibes beach is only a 7-8-minute walk away.

The apartment is located in the very centre of Antibes – close to all the shops and amenities, the bus and railway stations, the tourist office, the museums, beaches, restaurants, bars and the Old Town – but it is off the main road and so nice and quiet.

The building has an underground garage where a private space is available for you to park a car. There is a direct lift from the garage to the apartment floor.

The apartment is also only about ten minutes’ walk away from Juan les Pins which is equally popular for its lively nightlife, casino and excellent beaches.

The local library around the corner has free wi-fi and internet facilities.

You can also take the bus or train and quickly get to Nice, Cannes, Monaco and other locals towns along the coast, or go up the mountains, to visit charming medieval villages or to go skiing.

Location description from owner

The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region

The Cote d'Azur has over 300 days of sunshine a year and has long been a favourite holiday destination for both the British and the French. Lovely sandy beaches, safe bathing in a beautiful blue sea, historic, medieval villages, mountains, museums, cafes, bars and restaurants are all on your doorstep.

Apart from the obvious world famous destinations – Nice and Cannes (both just a bus ride away) – there are many less well known attractions equally worth seeing in the vicinity. Visit a pottery in Vallauris, a glass works in Biot or a perfumery in Grasse - all are very close and can be reached by public transport. No wonder Picasso loved this area and lived and worked here for several years.

The French Alps are about 1.5 hours away; you can drive there or go by bus or train. This is a great area for skiing in the winter and hiking in spectacular scenery at other times of the year. The nearby hills are ideal walking country and you can visit lots of picturesque, historic villages such as Mougins, Valbonne, St Paul de Vence, Menton, Gourdon or Tourettes sur Loup.

The bus service is very good and the fare is only 1 euro per person per journey. You can also get around by train which runs both along the coast and up into the mountains. You can therefore also go skiing in the winter, either by car or using the very convenient trains and special buses.

From Antibes it is easy to get to Cannes (10 minutes by train), where the world famous film festival is held; Nice (10 minutes), with its delightful pedestrianised old town and huge market; Monaco (45 minutes), where you can see how the other half live, visit the Monte Carlo casino and the Grand Prix; and even Italy is within easy reach.

Antibes Centre Ville

Antibes is ideally located between Nice and Cannes, with excellent bus and also train services. You can find out more about Antibes and current events taking place there at the official website: www.antibesjuanlespins.com.

Antibes is a very ancient town with over 2,500 years of history. There is an old fort dating back to the 16th century, and you can still see sections of medieval walls and towers around the old town - which consists of a maze of streets and squares filled with restaurants, bars and shops. It is also home to several museums, most famous of which is the Picasso museum, and a provencal market which sells fresh fruit and vegetables as well as arts & crafts. There is also a roman cellar turned into a fascinating bar with over a dozen different varieties of absinthe!

Antibes is attached to Juan les Pins, which is very popular for its beaches, its bars and the casino. Being on the coast there lots of watersports available including diving, sailing (both boat hire and lessons are available) and waterskiing, and there are several golf courses in the area.

Boat trips can also be taken to the Lérins Islands which are rich in history and nature. On Sainte-Marguerite, visit Fort Royal where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned. You can also sail to Monaco and St Tropez.

Firework festivals are held in Antibes, as well as other towns along the coast, and jazz festivals are held in Juan Les Pins and Nice. Christmas is well-celebrated with lots of decorations and events. Children are well catered for with the very popular Marineland and fun park.

Here is a report from the The Daily Telegraph (23/6/2009):

“If there is an art gallery with a more beautiful location than the Picasso Museum in Antibes, I have yet to find it. From the terrace below the medieval stone tower of the former Grimaldi Palace, you look out over the glittering waters of the bay to the distant grey bulk of Cap Ferrat. The sun beats on the Mediterranean, yachts slide lazily past, around the corner children paddle from the beach, and inside the medieval château, the white-walled galleries are hung with some of the painter's most hedonistic and untroubled work.

Picasso used the château as a studio in the autumn of 1946, a brief but apparently happy interlude in the itinerant life of the exiled Spaniard. His painting Joie de Vivre, which hangs in the museum, perhaps best captures the mood, with its summery palette of light blues and yellows. A naked model dances to pan pipes – played by a faun and a centaur – on the beach while a fishing boat bobs on the horizon.
Some of Picasso's most hedonistic and spirited paintings and drawings are here”.
