Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Antibes - Place de Rêves

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.

About Jonathan & Judy

English/American couple living between Antibes, France and Oxford, England who are lovers of Art, Music and Food.

Jonathan & Judy purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Jonathan & Judy chose Cannes - Grasse - 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.

Dream Stay

  • 5 of 5

In spite of a rainy arrival, Jonathan and Judy were on hand to give us a very warm welcome, this was the only rainy day, after this we had sunny weather.

The photos on “HomeAway” certainly do justice to this apartment. The outstanding view from the French windows overlooking the little beach and port Vauban gave us many moments of pleasure watching the yachts and sunbathers, even though our stay was in November.

The apartment was all as promised, fully equipped with many”extras” and certainly much better than other apartments we have rented and throughout our stay, Jonathan and Judy kept in touch to make sure we had all we needed.

Making use of the bus pass, (only 10 euros for the week) we visited Biot, Valauris, Cannes and Juan les Pins and took the train to visit Monaco and Nice.

We particularly enjoyed paddling in the sea, visiting the old town exploring the little back streets and the markets. However, we will never forget our last full day, (18th Nov.) at Juan les Pins, eating in a restaurant on the beach two metres from the sea with a clear blue sky and a temperature of 19 degrees C.

Sadly our two weeks passed too quickly and we would certainly like to return to “the Place de Reves”.

Gem of an apartment

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing stay at Jonathan and Judy's apartment in the old town of Antibes. I've traveled to many places in the world and have to say that the views from this apartment are some of the most spectacular I've ever seen. In fact, I can't imagine there is a better apartment in all of Antibes! Everything you could ever want, including French bakeries, cafes, wine bars, and restaurants are a 5 minute walk. And to top it all off, Jonathan and Judy are incredibly nice and always available for any questions you may have. I would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone going to Antibes.

A very unique spot in Antibes

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but praise for this spectacular rental. The view, of course, is a dream and well worth climbing three flights of stairs to enjoy a panoramic view of the beach, the harbor and the bay as far as Nice and Villefranche.. Everything about the apartment was clearly explained in a most useful booklet with a detailed map of Antibes, our hosts J & J went out of their way to make us feel welcome and greeted us with a bottle of chilled wine, milk and butter in the refrigerator, which was a very much appreciated touch. They made us feel more like houseguests than clients, and made our stay very special.

The apartment itself is bright,spotlessly clean and very well appointed with more kitchen ustensils than we could possibly use during a one week vacation!

Outstanding stay!

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Jonathan and Judy for their warm hospitality in Antibes! They have literally thought of everything you could possibly need, right down to that little wooden device to extract your toast without burning fingers. The location is outstanding and we loved the views of the sea with snow-capped Alps in the distance... and the gorgeous harvest moon rise too. In addition to touring the town, we enjoyed playing tennis at the club just beyond the train station. Also, Le Figuier de Saint-Esprit was offering a 2-for-1 special on Monday evening, a great way to experience a top restaurant just a stone's throw from the apt. In brief, the stay exceeded our expectations, and my (very picky) husband declared it "the best place we've ever stayed". We can't wait to return!

Place de Reves is Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

Place de Reves is spectacular! Million dollar sweeping views, there is no better spot in Antibes. The balcony overlooks the Mediterranean, swing open the large balcony doors and choose to sit in or outside, check out the enormous yachts, and the beautiful beach below, while sipping on coffee (or tea) all provided by your host and hostess. Head down to the street level, turn the corner and you are smack dap in the heart of Antibes, the daily market is amazing for everything from cheese to produce, and of course croissants, to the souvenirs of Provence, herbs, soaps, spices and lavender.

Turn the other corner and you are on the beach.The hosts provide chairs, Mats, floats even a cooler. After the beach open up the complimentary bottle of Rose and head back to balcony of the beautiful apartment.

The hosts provide tons of information on Antibes and the region, but if you were anything like us, it was hard to venture out of the apartment.

The apartment is super clean, comfortable

Furniture, unique art throughout and a well equipped kitchen, as well. The king size bed is very comfortable and the balcony doors can be opened for views of the Mediterranean, or shuttered up for sleeping in late.

Great restaurant recommendations from the hosts as well.

Wish we had stayed longer then the 3 days, but we will Return.

Big thanks to Jonathan and Judy!

Wonderful Apartment in Antibes

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was absolutely perfect for our 5 day stay and we made new friends with owners Jonathan and Judy. When we arrived, Judy met us and went over all the details and workings of the apartment. She explained how to use everything and shared with us the handy information binder they have prepared for guests. She was also very helpful with parking instructions. The apartment was very clean, well appointed, and had stunning views of the beach, harbour, and the Mediterranean. Lunch on the small balcony with a bottle of wine, courtesy of our hosts, was a treat. The apartment was stocked with Nespresso pods, jam, butter, bottled water, soaps, laundry detergent, beach mats and chairs, umbrella, board games and just about anything else we needed including excellent wifi! A short walk to the beach, the marina, the market and the centre of the Old Town made our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Jonathan and Judy were very responsive to any questions when booking and during our time in Antibes, and our stay went smoothly. We highly recommend this wonderful apartment and Jonathan and Judy were very welcoming and genuinely cared about ensuring a great stay.
