About Julia Richard

We are managing "La Bougainvillea" with all our heart and applying attention to details to ensure guests are happy and well looked after during their stay.

Julia Richard purchased this house in 2013

Why Julia Richard chose Cannes - Grasse - 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 also be happy to assist you where we can in providing local information and recommendations.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 3 days in June, 2016. It was exactly as pictured - very comfortable and well appointed. We had a lovely dinner on the terrace one evening and used the available beach chairs and umbrella one day.

The location was great and accessible to central Antibes. There is a grocery store across the street and several bakeries close by. It is within easy walking distance down to the harbour and there are many restaurants nearby. Antibes is lovely and you can easily take the train to visit Cannes etc. We were very lucky and obtained parking across from the apartment each day.

We would highly recommend this apartment!

Fabulous home, in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

Dealing with the owner was a joy, prompt, helpful and friendly.

The property is adorable, the courtyard area a huge bonus and the air conditioning a life saver!

We would have given 5*, however there were a few problems with leaks and a cupboard door, plus had to stand waiting in the sun for 15-20 minutes on arrival, as the gentleman letting us in was late. Not his fault and very apologetic, but not the best start!

We would not hesitate to recommend this property, and would love to stay there again.

Superbe location

  • 5 of 5

Les photos de HomeAway de la location ne nous ont pas menti. C'était exactement ça et c'était la perfection. Accueil, propreté, équipement; tout cela impeccable.

Ajoutons que la situation de cet appartement est remarquable. Bien que situé au coeur d'Antibes, à proximité immédiate de tous les commerces et services, y compris autobus et trains; la location est d'un calme absolu et on n'entend pas le moindre bruit de rue.

Donc un gros merci Julia pour ce très agréable séjour chez-vous à Antibes.

Jacques & Diane

Beautiful hideaway in Antibes

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing Christmas and New Year at La bougainvillea, the house is just as beautiful as it shows in the photos. The bedrooms are luxurious and we all slept so well there. The living room and kitchen are comfortable and cosy. Antibes is right on the doorstep and the train station just a 10 minute walk. The house and courtyard are well appointed and clean and well kept. We would thoroughly recommend this rental, thank you for a wonderful stay.
