About the property

Stunning Sea View Apt on the Ramparts in the Old Town of Antibes

In a unique location with breathtaking panoramic views of the sea, mountains, sandy beach, Fort Carré and Port Vauban, you’ll experience a magical atmosphere here for your holiday. We affectionately call the apartment 'Place de Rêves' (Place of Dreams) as the building’s entrance is just off the ‘Place de Revely’ in the Old Town of Antibes. It is on the 3rd (top) floor in the building next to the former home of the artist Nicolas de Staël. The apartment has 2 balconies, 1 in the bedroom and 1 off the living room. The bedroom is Air Conditioned with a king-sized bed (160 x 200cm) and there is a large sofa bed (170 x 200cm) in the living room. The sunny and spacious living room comes equipped with a Roland digital piano overlooking the marina. Best of all, the Mediterranean Sea lies just outside so the views are quite stunning!

The apartment is located a one-minute walk through the Place de Revely and under the Roman arch of the Old City wall to the famous market called the ‘Marché Provençal’ where you’ll find fresh local produce. Within a few meters is the world acclaimed Picasso Museum where he worked in the 1940s and where you’ll find a stunning collection of his paintings and ceramics. Picasso painted his "La Joie de Vivre" in Antibes in 1946. Today, Antibes still embodies The Joy of Life.

Possibly the most perfectly-situated apartment in Antibes, you’ll find a large choice of restaurants, shops, and cafes within easy walking distance (2 minutes or less!). The apartment provides an ideal setting for a car-less vacation on the French Riviera. We can provide for pick-up and drop-off at Nice (NCE) Airport if needed at an extra charge.

The fantastic views make the open plan kitchen/living room/dining area a natural gathering area for relaxing, and cooks will appreciate the well-appointed kitchen. The kitchen includes an electric oven, electric cooker with glass hob, microwave, fridge with freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer combo, Nespresso machine, milk frother and coffee presses (cafetières) in two sizes. All fittings are high quality and the kitchen will have everything you need to cook fine food at home.

Whether you're lingering over a pain au chocolat and coffee on the balcony table-for-2 for breakfast or you’re proudly serving dinner made from fresh Provençal ingredients you purchased at the market on the dining table (seats 6), you’ll enjoy the ever changing views of the Mediterranean below.

The well-appointed bathroom has a shower, tub and towel warmer.

For exploring further afield, the apartment is a 10-minute walk to trains/buses to Cannes, Nice, Monaco, and the Nice airport. Ski resorts in the Alps are located within a 1.5-2 hour drive (Isola 2000 & Auron).

Your rental includes an "arrival starter kit" (toilet paper, paper towel roll, soap, coffee, tea, milk, wine and water), cleaning (for a 2 guest rental, a £50.00 charge will be added for 3 or more guests), bed linen, towels, beach towels & beach gear, electricity, water, WiFi, and phone calls to fixed lines in most parts of the world (Europe, Continental USA and Canada) and phone calls to mobile phones in the continental USA and Canada. Please note, you will be charged from your deposit for all other calls.

Jonathan & Judy purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Jonathan & Judy chose Antibes

There are very few properties with this location in the Old Town of Antibes looking over the sea. As we have two apartments in the Old Town, we have decided to offer this apartment for holiday lets starting in May, 2014.

What makes this apartment unique

Stunning panoramic sea views. Everything you would want or need within 1 minute walking distance from the cobbled streets of the Old Town. Including a sandy beach right below the living room balcony.

Another Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second wonderful stay in this delightful apartment and we plan to return next year. We love relaxing on the terrace, the views are stunning and it is a pleasure to watch the world go by from 'our' private haven. The living area is bright and sunny and the air-conditioned bedroom (and bathroom) mean that we were always able to sleep comfortably, even in this unusually hot summer. The location is perfect for everything that we love about Antibes old town. Judy was waiting to collect us from the airport, as arranged, and both she and Jonathan are very friendly owners who are easily contactable.

Magical stay in Antibes

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly special. The view is even better than the photos and the apartment is impeccably furnished and supplied. The weather was hot when we stayed, so we greatly appreciated the air-conditioned bedroom and bathroom. The location is ideal for enjoying the beach, walking to shops and restaurants and the amazing Picasso museum and other attractions. Since the apartment is on the top floor, there are lots of stairs to climb, but once you arrive, the climb is worth the effort. Our hosts, Jonathan & Judy were delightful, friendly & helpful. We will definitely return for many future vacations. This stay was THE highlight of our nearly month long trip to Europe!

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

The views of the Mediterranean Sea from every corner of this apartment are spectacular and Antibes is the cutest town along the French Riviera! This listing is exactly as advertised being extremely light and roomy with high quality fittings. I stood in front of the kitchen sink starring out at the sea instead of loading the dishwasher on many occasions and we sat on the balcony sipping coffee or wine as often as possible! The owners were incredibly helpful throughout the booking process and thoughtful with all the little touches left for our visit. This place is worthy of far more than 5 stars thanks to its sweeping views of the Mediterranean that are incredible no matter what the weather is, owners who go above and beyond to please you, and its proximity to all you could ever want and need for an amazing and unforgettable vacation in the South of France. Grab this apartment if you can!

Incredible apartment, Incredible views, Incredible hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to express the pure magic of this apartment! Besides the massive living space, beautiful bathroom and kitchens, and wonderful bedroom; the views of the sea off the balcony simply take your breath away. (And they aren’t bad from the 2nd balcony either!!) You couldn’t ask for more from the space, it was clean, comfortable, and inviting; and fully stocked with all essentials (including games, postcards, beach supplies, and more!) Both Judy and Jonathan worked hard to ensure every aspect of our trip was smooth, even with guiding us to the best pizza places and grocery stores. They were available in every step to help guide us through Antibes- while it was hard to pry ourselves from the balcony- this made for a truly inspiring look at an incredible city. If you have the chance to stay in this stunning home- jump at the chance!!
