About Jules, Nicolas & Jérôme
When I'm not hanging out in Antibes eating gorgeous fresh produce from the market (literally at the bottom of my building) and drinking fabulous local wines, I live and work in Hong Kong. I'm currently a Senior Lecturer in Dance Studies at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. So an artist at heart and appreciative of beautiful - and at times expensive - things. So you’re probably wondering why a guy from New Zealand who lives in Hong Kong has a home in France… Well… I was on holiday in Antibes July 2014 and after a fine lunch with generous amounts of great Provencal rose’; I staggered into an estate agents and said "I'd like to buy an apartment". So I did....The estate agent showed me a number of properties that day however I completely fell in love with Chez Les Terrasses. Well more accurately I fell in love with the potential I saw in Chez Les Terrasses. So one year later having survived the French legal systems, French banking system (which are very thorough I have to report), Polish builders (who don’t speak English and my French is very very basic) and a great deal of blood, sweat, tears and money!! I'm there, living the dream of owning a property in the south of France. I love it here! I'm a big foodie (and like to think I'm a good cook), love French wine and the beach, so this apartment is perfect for me. I spent a lot of time (and money) making it comfortable for me, so I hope you enjoy it too. As you can imagine renovating an apartment in a building hundreds of years old had its challenges and limitations, so I wasn't always able to do what I want (moving walls was impossible). Happy to share my tips and experiences with anyone who finds themselves returning from holiday with a tan and real-estate...

My wife and I had a great time staying here during our five nights in Antibes. Both the apartment itself and the location (incredible 6-day-a-week farmer's market right outside your front door) were exactly what we wanted. No elevator in the building so make sure you are comfortable with stairs, but the view from the apartment's balcony makes it worthwhile. Another important point-- despite having the market, restaurants and shops right outside, the apartment is very well-insulated from the noise. The place didn't come cheap, but we felt we got what we paid for.
The hosts did a good job-- responsive during booking and were on call during our stay (we didn't have any problems that we needed them for). The wine and snacks in the fridge at check-in was also nice.
‘Chez les Terrasses’ was the perfect place for our week in Antibes. It was the fabulous terrace that clinched it and it delivered! The apartment was really well equipped, along with little extras like wine and snacks left for us on arrival, so it feel like ‘home from home’ except better! It is on the fourth floor but that just helped to justify all the marvellous cheeses, bread, fresh fruit and vegetables that we were able to indulge in right on our doorstep due to the great location. Both check in and check out were seamless. We were met on arrival by Nicolas who kindly gave us all the information we needed and then left us to enjoy our stay - which we did enormously, and hopefully we will be able to return in the not too distant future!

We loved staying in this bijoux apartment in the hub of old Antibes and hope to return in the future. Everything was so easy and straight forward with excellent communication with the host 24/7 if required. The market directly below sells a variety of super fresh top quality supplies. We enjoyed french cheese, juicy tomatoes, french bread with a glass of crisp rose wine (supplied by the host as complimentary) on the sunny terrace. The stairs to the apartment gave us our daily excessive. 10/10 AAAA rated
This apartment is wonderful, the position in Antibes is perfect. You can see the harbor from the outside balcony which is very nice, large and comfortable. This apartment interior is very well maintained, well appointed with all you can need. The design and layout make it very spacious and comfortable. The beds and linens are all very nice and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you would need. Having the daily market right below was great, went down each morning bought some fresh cheeses, and breads for breakfast. It was great! The beach and harbor is very, very close. If you don't go to the daily market, the supermarket is not far at all. A wine shop, cheese shop, butcher and bread market are all within a few feet of the apartment. The restaurants near by are awesome. Overall definitely would and will book again. The Keylady who met us at the apartment was extremely helpful with questions and suggestions of the area. Thanks Valerie!!! We loved our stay and do plan another!
Absolutely STUNNING apartment in perfect location
We spent 5 wonderful days in this gorgeous apartment which overlooks the central food market in Antibes. The apartment has everything you could possibly need.... the kitchen is actually better stocked with gadgets and equipment than my own kitchen!
The sunny terrace is the perfect place to soak up some rays and experience the charm of Antibes' old town. In the afternoons we headed upstairs to the sunny nook overlooking the rest of Antibes - it is the perfect place to have a glass of rose & read a book.
Can't say much more... totally gorgeous decor & perfect location in the hear of the old town. We will definitely be coming back here next time we visit the South of France.
