Review – Manderley, ref. 440955
We have been coming to this fabulous apartment in Antibes for over 20 years and regard it as a home from home . The best word to describe it is tranquille - A truly safe haven. It is also very stylishly furnished, comfortable, elegant and practical.
The accommodation is excellent and adaptable – two double bedrooms – one with en suite bathroom also a separate shower room and cloakroorm. There are also two sofa beds in the lovely big salon which opens onto a spacious terrace over looking the garden and swimming pool. The apartment is within a 15 minute’s walk from the centre of the town and the railway station. There is a bus 100 yards away but the timetable is somewhat erratic . The gardens are beautiful and the communal swimming pool very well maintained. The other residents are quiet, considerate French, most of whom have a second home elsewhere so that outside peak holiday times the pool and gardens are unoccupied
There are a great quantity of restaurants to choose from in Antibes but the kitchen is so well stocked and the markets and delicatessens so tempting there is no need to ever eat out. Time doesn’t seem to matter – there is always somewhere open, someone ready and willing to find you what you need.
Antibes is a delightful town with a market once a week and a food market daily. Communications are easy with the railway station on the way into the town and train service connecting with all the well known towns along the coast – Cannes, Nice, Menton, Monaco - and Italy just a hour way. The weekly market in Ventimilia is renowned for its bargain copies of designer goods at a fraction of the price. In all the time we have been coming we have never not found something new to see or do and have always been sorry to leave and eager to return.
The listing of this apartment accurately conveys the quality of the location and the facilities available both inside and outside the apartment. The building and the grounds are well maintained and the apartment was immaculate on our arrival. It is equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay and the surrounding area offers a multitude of activities - sightseeing, culture, fine dining, swimming, boating and walking. The old town has a traditional covered market as well as a weekly one in the town square and many attractive, specialist shops in its pretty, narrow streets. There are restaurants and bars to suit all tastes. Walking round the harbour looking at the luxury boats is an experience.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property wholeheartedly to any friend or relation.
