Perfect location

4 of 5
We booked an airport transfer which Ivan arranged for us, this worked very well. We have been visiting Antibes for 20 years and I have to say this apartment has one of the best views, and is ideally located for the shops and restaurants in the old town as well as the beaches. The apartment is very comfortable and has a well equipped kitchen.

Perfect place to unwind

5 of 5
My family had another lovely stay at Scoubidou (our third time there). This was our first late-season visit, but even in October the weather was gorgeous and the outdoor pool was still lovely and warm – a very welcome antidote to grey, rainy London. We didn't go on many day-trips this time out – there's a largeish supermarket just a few minutes' drive away in town, so we mostly just loaded up on provisions and lounged around the villa. But we're happy to report that Beaulieu-sur-Mer has lost none of its charm. We ventured out to St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat for lunch one day (about a 20-minute drive away) and got some superb photos of the beautiful views along the coastline. We'll definitely be back next time we need to get away from city life and decompress!
