About the property


Ideally located in the pretty neighborhood 'Safranier' in the old town of Antibes, the apartments allow you to enjoy the charms of Antibes!

The typical daily market is just down the street to immerse yourself in the Provencal atmosphere, buy fresh local produce on colorful stalls, drink coffee with one hand socca!

The location of the apartments is exceptional because everything is within walking distance: the white sand beaches of Gravette and Ponteil (350 meters), the walk around the ramparts and the sea a few meters away, plenty of shops and restaurants (100 m), the Picasso Museum (200 m), the famous harbor of yachts (300 m), the bus station (300 m) to go in nearby cities (Cannes - Nice) or in Sophia Antipolis.

Recently and completely renovated the apartments are comfortable: WIFI internet, cable TV and international channels, microwave, oven, washing machine the machine, toaster ...

The decoration of each apartment was neat, combining sleek design for the contemporary side and notes with authentic Provençal furniture and marine antique objects, remembering that you are staying in the historic district of the old coastal town of Antibes!

The ground floor of the apartments for the warmth provided by the wood.

The charm and comfort under one roof for a great vacation in the most pleasant cities in the French Riviera- Ideal as a base for visiting the Riviera!

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment could not be on a prettier street. Great location for shops, restaurants and the beach. Well equipped, clean and spacious inside with everything needed for a relaxing holiday. The roof terrace is perfect for both sunbathing, and long summer nights dining outside. Lovely to be able to see the sea too. We would definitely return!

comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Gateway. Clara and her husband Pierre are so lovely. They have great ideas and want you to have a great time. This was our 5th visit to Antibes and this apartment was a great place for our home base. It is bright, spacious for two, and the terrace was a real treat. It's in my favorite area - the Safranier. It's a great location and Clara has some wonderful restaurants on her suggestions list that I'd not tried so we were excited to have new experiences. I really loved having the upstairs sitting area and we dined nightly on the terrace. My only small hitch, which wouldn't be a problem for most, was that for me it was a working holiday and the Internet challenged me at times to make clear calls on my Skype. It is shared with Clara's other apartments in the building. I will look forward to my return and would certainly make the Gateway my home again.

Perfect holiday accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Gateway for a week and only wish that we had stayed longer. The apartment is perfect for a couple needing a relaxing holiday. The location is fabulous, so peaceful and yet so close to everything in Antibes. The roof terrace is lovely for sitting with a glass of wine in the evenings. The kitchen is well stocked although there are so many restaurants to visit that we didn't use it much!

Clara and Pierre are the perfect hosts with plenty of tips on where to eat and visit. We took their advice and walked up to the church and lighthouse on Cap d'Antibes one day. It really is a stunning part of the Cote d'Azur.

We will most definitely return!

TOP Ferienwohnung - die keine Wünsche offen lässt !

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 3 Wochen in dieser wunderschönen Ferienwohnung mit toller Terrasse / Balkon mit prima Fernblick -auch teilweise auf das Meer-. Die Ausstattung ist sehr gut und man fühlt sich gleich wie zu Hause ;-) Bei Fragen oder Wünschen stehen Clara & Pierre stets zur Verfügung. Die Lage der Wohnung ist besonders schön ruhig und man kann nachts prima und ungestört durchschlafen !!! Wir haben uns bestens erholt und kommen gerne wieder.

Un location formidable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passés une semaine à l'appartement et c'était super.

L'appartement est idéalement situé, près de la vielle ville et la plage.

Nous étions deux personnes et c'était bien assez espace pour nous mais l'appartement peut accueillir beaucoup de personnes si vous connaissez l'autres bien.

Nous mangerions beaucoup, q'il y a un abondance de restaurants. Mais pour manger dedans, il y a une cuisine bien équipé et un beau balcon/terrace.

Nous y retournerions.
