About Francoise & Francois

Expat since 15 years in Italy, we bought this apartment where we are feeling like at home in France!

Francoise & Francois purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Francoise & Francois chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

Antibes is a place we love, the old town, the port Vauban, the beautiful yachts, the local market, the beaches, and a great choice of very good restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is near everything, owns a private secured garage, a large terrace and is quite calm. Very well equipped and designed for a family of four or two couples of friends.

Great central location for exploring Cote d'Azur

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week in this very clean and modern apartment. We used it as our home base from which to explore, by train, the many little villages on the French Riviera The location is ideal - 5 minute walk to the train station and about 10 minute walk to the old city with many fine restaurants to be found. Parking is provided but a car is definitely not essential. Mme. Gamelin welcomed us promptly upon our arrival. The photos provided accurately portray the apartment. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others.

Thank you Francoise for helping us to have a wonderful vacation in beautiful Antibes.

We like this place, we are in love to owners :)

  • 5 of 5

We are here for the fourth time, and that's more then just words! Very convenient location in the heart of the city and a quiet place. Right in the city area there is sandy beach, and if you prefer pebbles, then it is very close. We always drove by car to this beach. Just 1-2 min. Restaurants within walking distance. Excellent Italian restaurant 100 meters away.

Antibes is located on the cape and there is always a pleasant climate. The heat is not felt as in the neighboring cities.

And of course special thanks to François and Anne-Sophie for hospitality and service and bottle of wine ;) We are glad, and the fifth time we will come to you!

With best regards,

A Pleasant Stay in Le Port, Antibes

  • 4 of 5

This was our seventh visit to Antibes, so we knew the area. The apartment is in a modern block and is comfortable, spacious, secure and well-equipped. The kitchen and bathroom are particularly pleasant and, all-importantly, the bed was very comfortable. In addition, we found access to the balcony via kitchen and living room very useful. The location gave us easy access to bus and train stations. At the same time, we were still close to the food shops. One of our great pleasures is walking around the Old Town and along the ramparts and we had been concerned that the apartment was slightly further away than we would wish. We need not have been, as it made no difference to us. In addition, we found ourselves pleasantly near to the marina. The apartment was beautifully quiet, which was important, as, in the past, some of the locations in which we have stayed have been noisy. Just a word about Anne-Sophie, the on-site manager: we found her wonderfully helpful, including meeting us the night before we left, as we had an early departure and helping with a false alarm about missing reading glasses! Over-all, we would definitely recommend this apartment.

Le port

  • 4 of 5

A very well appointed property. Comfortable and well equipped,

close to excellent transport facilities. We found it an ideal base

for exploring the coast from Cannes to Vintimiglia. If we visit

Antibes again we shall certainly stay there. Thoroughly recommended!

Elegant, complete, cosy and well situated.

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed our stay in this excellent appartment. The reception was cordial and instructive (thanks for the bottle of wine!). Antibes is a lively place. Most of the objects of interest are in the neighbourhood reachable by foot. 'La vieille ville' starts at the end of the street. Very good restaurant: Le Vauban, a good Italian is at the corner of the building: La Famiglia.

We recommend this adress!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved this apartment. The apartment and building are modern and a short walk from the train station - no need for a taxi. The marina is across the street and you can walk to the beach, market, and restaurants in town. The owner has a couple of straw beach mats that came in handy plus a wheeled card for the carrying groceries. The owner is very easy to deal with and his manager meet us promptly on our arrival.
