|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
A luxurious 2 bedroom flat, part of a villa converted to 4 apartments, in one of the best locations on Cap D’Antibes close to excellent beaches, night life and all amenities. Accommodation consists of an open plan kitchen and dining-room, spacious living room with TV, music center and Satellite, fully fitted kitchen with dish-washer, fridge, oven, micro-wave, washing-machine, covered terrace with magnificent sea-views, on the ground floor 2 bedrooms with main bedroom having a French door to the terrace and sea views, 2 bathrooms, double garage, swimming-pool, 300 sqm well kept garden and large private terrace with a built-in barbecue, panoramic sea-views. A number of Ski resorts are within one and half hour drive from the villa.
We spent just over a week at the apartment with our two teenage children. The pictures do not fully do justice to the house or its location. The setting is extremely tranquil in an elevated position and far enough away from the crowds but close enough to cycle, drive or walk (if you are feeling particularly fit) to the local shops and beaches. What the pictures cannot prepare you for is the breath taking view. You can spend time over breakfast or dinner just watching the yachts and mega-yachts go by!
With regard to the apartment itself it is well proportioned and spacious arranged over two levels with a good number of bathrooms and although we ate out a fair bit (Antibes old town a particular favourite) the kitchen is well equipped with only the absence of a knife sharpener our only grumble.
The shared pool was popular with us especially early and late in the day (it also has lighting for after dark) and the adjacent grass area perfect for catching some more sun and drying off whilst reading that all important holiday paperback. The apartment has good WiFi & cable TV but, as those of you with teenage children will know, that is not always a blessing!
We have used Airbnb quite a lot in the past but never Homeaway - overall we would recommend it as well as thoroughly recommending Regina & Ebby’s beautiful place...
We spent a week at the property with our two grandchildren. The dutch family who owned the other side of the property were holidaying at the same time and they couldn't have been more friendly. The villa is very well equipped with a comprehensively fitted kitchen, a fixed barbecue which we made good use of and fabulous views over the coastline. The two boys loved the swimming pool. The local town of Antibes which could be easily reached by foot offered a wide range of beaches, cafes, bars and restaurants. A car is essential because towns further afield such Juan Les Pins, Cannes and Nice required a car journey. When we arrived, WIfi was available and was suitably fast. In the evenings, we were able to view videos from a wide selection available. The remote controls for the TV and video did not work because their batteries required replacing and although we could have contacted Fifi to get replacements, we did not bother because we had so many other entertainments available. The property was very clean and well maintained. The large air conditioner in the main bedroom was a bit of an issue because it was very loud and so most of the time we turned it off. However, our week at the property coincided with a heat wave and the nights were very hot. We would certainly recommend this property.
We chose this villa based on the good reviews that we read. We were not disappointed. My family of two adults and two children visited the villa, Mirraniza, during the Easter holidays in mid April.The weather was great and we enjoyed three days on the beach and the terrace is a real sun trap so it was warm enough to have a dip in the pool.The villa is tastefully decorated and well equipped with fabulous views out to sea and across Antibes. The villa is set in a mature, well maintained garden which slopes gently down to the villa which our children enjoyed exploring, I imagine it will be very colourful during the summer months. We walked to the beach as only takes about 15 minutes(we don't walk fast on holiday!!) this left us free to walk into the old town to eat and drink at any of the many restaurants without thinking about parking.
Our only concern was the wifi working, we were assured by the owner that it had been fixed and it worked fine.
All in all we had a great time staying in this villa and look forward to going back.
The main picture is what seduced me to rent the place. WOW. The picture does not do the place justice.
The wifi did not work while we were there and that was severely limiting for us (we do not have european cell phones) and for that, I give 4, not 5 stars. We were able to get on line in Juan des Pins
The beds were comfortable and sheets and towels were plentiful. The property is spotless and well maintained.
The kitchen has everything that you need to prepare all the great fresh food/fish/produce/meats that this area has to offer.
Fifi is fantastic and available for anything that pops up (nothing did).
The dutch couple is lovely (we were using their table when they arrived for their holiday and we were mortified but got it straightened out as to what "belonged" to our apartment).
You will have use of the LEFT half of villa (sun porch, upper terrace with pizza oven and barbecue, garage with bikes) and you will share the the entire lower terrace with pool and grassy area.
Parking is plentiful and easy. You WILL need a car and plan on at least 20-30 minutes to get from the villa to A8. It took us 40 minutes to Cote d Azur on a Sunday with no traffic!
Beaches are plentiful and range from rocky to sandy and from free to pay for umbrella type. They are walkable. There are some flat areas for running/jogging/working off the wine and cheese.
Ebby answered all of my questions quickly and completely. Signing papers was easy. Money/bank transfer went smoothly.
I would return here and recommend this place to ANYONE wishing to know what it is like to live in the French Riviera like the ultrarich at the fraction of the price. You can pretend any of the yachts in the harbor are yours...we did.
Great place to have perfect getaway;)
We had our breakfast, lunch and dinner with amazing view!
Car is necessary;) to drive to market and beach.
We stayed at the villa during May 2013 with my partner and 7 years old daughter. The location of the place is perfect and sea views from the apartment and all of the villa are breath taking. There is a large terrace area with built in barbeque which was a great for eating outside during the evening and watching the sun go down. The villa is within walking distance to good beaches, Antibes and shops. Although the place is an apartment, being on two levels and having all the gardens and see view, it has the feel of a house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Will do it again.
Cap d'Antibes is one of the most exclusive places in the World with some of the most luxurious villas and hotels to be found anywhere. This includes the famous Hotel du Cap which is where many of the stars stay during the Cannes Film Festival. The area boasts some of the prettiest beaches any where in Riviera including La Salis and Plage de la Garoupe. On top of the Cap there is the La Garoupe lighthouse with extraordinary views in all directions and the Chapelle Notre-Dame-du-Bon-Port. The Antibes is within walking distance with its Grimaldi castle sheltering the Picasso museum, its Peynet museum, its Provençal market, its cathedral decorated with a baroque façade, but also its crafts shops, its restaurants and cafés. The villa is also close to Juan Les Pin with it sandy beaches. In July and August, Juan Les Pins is alive twenty four hours a day with its numerous night-clubs and live music venues and this is the ideal base for those that want to be on the beach all day.
Ski: Ski resorts of Valberg and Islo 2000 are one and half hour drive from the villa. A pair of skis and boots (size 41) are stored in Garage and can be used by guests.
