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.

Perfectly located property in the heart of Antibes

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property, perfect for our family of 4! Beautiful bedrooms, great bathroom (kids loved the bath!) with very good shower. Living area also provided all we needed, including great coffee machine!

Very close to cafés, bars and restaurants, perfect after a day at the beach. Everything we needed was provided, including beach towels, beach umbrella and beach games.

The owner was very helpful with all enquiries prior to our trip and we had easy communication with the lovely Cami who met us on arrival at the property with keys etc.

All in all a fabulous week, thank you!

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.
