About Diana Shenk

We are from Portland and Paris. Love the Cote d'Azur, and particularly our area.

Diana Shenk purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Diana Shenk chose Antibes

We chose this apt. because of its location and the beautiful town of Antibes, which has everything a vacationer dreams of. A charming and historic town center, with a unique and famous fresh-produce market, and endless charm, while Plage de La Salis, where the apt. is located is very calm with year-around residents.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to everything. Trains, grocery stores, many parks, public transportation, and buses taking you to all the neighboring town and villages. You can wear your bathing suit, add a pareo and head on out to walk across the road to a beach that is among the seven best beaches in the Riviera.

Excellent apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

On arrival, we were met by Valérie. A nice lady who gave us the keys and gave us the information regarding apartment etc. Gave us a bottle of wine and some lovely fruit, nice gesture.

Apartment well equipped and comfortable. Location perfect, walking distance to restaurants and bars. Beach bang across the road, result. Of course, there is also a pool at the apartments. Great communication from the owner. Highly recommend.

Great Apartment and Owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in this apartment at least four times over the past five years. It is our "home away from home." It is very well appointed with a comfortable bed and pull out sleeper, high quality linens, very nice furniture and a kitchen with all we have ever needed. Also, it is very clean and safe. It has two balconies which means the sea breezes cool the apartment even on the warmest days. It is near good shopping, good restaurants, an excellent patisserie, close to Old Town, and right across the street from a sandy beach with a fabulous view of the Mediterranean. The owner is very responsive and will be helpful from the beginning of your trip to the end. We highly recommend this apartment and will return again and again.

Comfortable, modern apartment steps from beach.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at the apartment from September 15th to September 21st 2017. The apartment is spacious, well furnished, and clean. The listing description is totally accurate. It is located within a few steps of the beach “Plage de Salis” yet it is quiet and peaceful. There is a large screen TV with many French and foreign channels, as well as free WIFI service. There is a pool available on the ground floor level. There are several restaurants and shopping within walking distance.

Visiting Old Antibes, where streets are for pedestrian traffic only is very enjoyable with its many restaurants, cafes, and excellent pastry shops. We also took a short trip to Cagnes to visit the Renoir museum which was Renoir's home for the last 12 years of his life. The beautiful estate contains many paintings and sculptures by the artist as well as details and photographs about his family and life.

We enjoyed two very good meals at Au Bord du Cap, a restaurant around the front of the building facing the sea. Also there is a shuttle bus that stops near the beach if you wish to visit the old town of Antibes without driving. The owner Diana Shenk speaks fluently multiple languages including English and French, she is very pleasant and helpful before and after arrival. Also madame Moine greeted us upon arrival and showed us all the amenities of the apartment.

We had a minor problem with the kitchen sink not draining properly and the owner quickly made arrangements to have a plumber fix that issue. An underground garage is available on the 2nd level with the apartment, but it is more suitable if you own or rent a small or compact car. There is also some parking on the street, and a parking lot with Parco meters adjoining the Plage de Salis.

All in all we had a wonderful time in the Antibes area while staying at this very comfortable and well located apartment and would recommend it highly.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to host Mr. & Mrs. Tambert. They were a perfect fit for our our little "pied à terre" in Antibes. We are hoping that they will come back again and again, like so many of our other guests.

Great location for a cultural beach holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable apartment is located one block back from the sandy beach which made it so convenient to go for a refreshing swim each day. The medieval town of Antibes is just 15 minutes walk away where we enjoyed the famous French culture of fresh food markets, croissants, wine and cheese and charming architecture.

Superb apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

This splendid one-bedroom apartment on the Plage de Salis, one of two major beaches in Antibes, has been a singular discovery. The apartment is open and airy during the warm months, and at all times the light shoots through the apartment. However, plenty of doors can close it off to create separate rooms that provide privacy for multiple guests. As others have noted, it is very close to Vieil Antibes, a quick and easy walk, and the newer shopping areas, but it is far enough to offer solitude and quiet during the evening hours. A navette stops every half hour outside the apartment and provides quick access to the bus terminal which straddles the older and newer parts of Antibes. One of my favorite restaurants La Romarin is nearby as is the popular patisserie l'Illette. A well regarded restaurant is attached to the building; it overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. One balcony is an asset. Two full balconies, one for the morning and the other for the evening, makes for an embarrassment of riches. Diana, the owner, is a gracious, honest, energetic, and funny host. She will do what she can to make your stay comfortable and fun.
