About Liesel Havercroft

Liesel has been managing "La Bougainvillea" for 2 years now and is applying her attention to detail and skills from working on board yachts for over a decade to ensure her clients are happy and well looked after during their stay.

Liesel Havercroft purchased this house in 2007

Why Liesel Havercroft chose Antibes

'La Bougainvillea' is renovated to a very high standards with beautiful bedrooms and a luxurious bathroom, a well equipped kitchen and a private and secluded courtyard for al fresco dining.

Although in the centre of the Old Town, we're on a quiet street unlike many other rental properties, so you don't have all the street noise at night. The house is also very cool on hot Summer's days due to the very effective aircon, the thick walls of the house and the shaded courtyard outside.

What makes this house unique

We have a stair gate upstairs and can provide a cot, high chair, toy box, bed safety rails, stepping stool, potty etc upon request. We'll do provisioning for you for a small fee, which can be very useful if you coming with small children and need nappies, baby food or any other items.

We'll also be happy to assist you where we can in providing local information and recommendations.

Perfect for a break in Antibes

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. We stayed as a party of four friends for a five night break. The house is perfectly located in a quiet street a stones throw from the old town so quiet, but minutes away from the shops and bars of Antibes. The house has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard and truly feels like a very smart home from home. There's even touches of a hotel about it, with L'Occitane toiletries, docking station and quality bed linen. The outside courtyard was brilliant - perfect for eating al fresco or a nightcap. All in all thoroughly recommended.

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home in a central location. Easy walking distance to all of old Antibes. Beautifully appointed home with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Gorgeous bathroom, spacious living room and big bedrooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, only wish it had been a little warmer so we could have used the charming courtyard!

Central, quiet, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very central, walking distance to everything, but still very quiet. It was especially handy to have a well-stocked Carrefour market just across the street. Excellent beds, and the heated bathroom floor was a delightful luxury on cool January mornings. Liesel was immediately responsive to our few requests, and we followed her suggestion of the Miam Miam takeout just up the street - three times in one week. We look forward to a return visit.

Tranquil perfection in the heart of Antibes.

  • 5 of 5

There are some places so perfect it makes me reluctant to say how great they are in case it becomes impossible to book them ourselves in the future. This apartment is one of them. Wonderfully quiet, yet slap bang in the middle of Antibes, with free on-street parking outside.Top quality everything, beautifully designed,immaculately kept. Everything you need is there, from beach towels to indoor slippers to wonderfully comfortable beds and linen to the properly equipped kitchen to the umbrella in case it rains. Air conditioning units that run so quietly they are almost unnoticeable so a good nights sleep is guaranteed. Charming outdoor eating area with visiting wild birds who enjoy the birdbath. There is a supermarket across the road, the provencal market is a five minute walk and there are excellent boulangeries, cafes and restaurants a stones throw away.The only thing that might present some people with a problem is the same thing that prevents me taking my octogenarian mother here : the bannister-less curving staircase would be too difficult for her. We were two middle-aged adult couples so this presented no problem and we had a marvellous stay .

La Bougainvillea is absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

La Bougainvillea is absolutely beautiful and perfectly located to exploring the old town and the wider area. It is much more spacious than you anticipate and immaculately maintained. We recommend a walk to Juan Le Pin, a train ride to Monaco and/or Cannes, and if you can, hire a boat from the beautiful harbour. Or, just relax on one of the lovely beaches and watch the world go by. Liesel and Stuart are excellent hosts who could not have been more helpful during the booking process, and during our stay. We will definitely be returning next year. Thank you Liesel for helping to make our holiday so enjoyable. Denise, Martin and Margot
