About Deepa Zaman
My partner and I love France and especially Paris and the south of France. I am a lecturer in further education, and my partner is an information security consultant. We enjoy french food and wine and have French nieces and nephews! We also love to travel and visit new or favourite places in France, and always feel excited for prospective guests when they apply looking to stay in Antibes as it is a wonderful location.
Deepa Zaman purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Deepa Zaman chose Antibes
We chose to buy an apartment in Antibes as it is on the Cote D'Azur in the South of France. The weather is lovely all year, it's very easy to get to with Nice airport nearby and a train station a few minutes from the apartment. Beautiful Provence is up the road and the back country offers endless walking/driving tours with national parks and natural gorges, mountains and lakes. There are many quaint medieval villages with culinary delights to explore. We wanted a place that was quick to travel to and also in a complex where mainly French families live, and lovely communal grounds.
What makes this Apartment unique
As mentioned our apartment is very easy to get to - Nice airport is around thirty minutes drive away or forty to sixty minutes bus ride away. Antibes railway station is walking distance. Local shops/bakers are a few minutes away and an Olympic sized swimming pool and high spec tennis courts can be found across the road from the complex. Antibes old town, port and nearest beach are all only fifteen minutes walk away. We also have a reserved parking place in the gated complex. We chose the apartment because it is a large airy family apartment. It has three bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a large living /dining room, with partial sea views. In addition there are two toilets, and separate bath and shower. Perfect for 6 people.

Wonderful, comfortable apartment in a peaceful area near all amenities
The apartment is comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The neighbours were friendly when we bumped into them and we felt very much at home. It was handy to be near the bus stops for the airport and La Garoupe or even days out in Nice. We took advantage of the neighbourhood boulangerie, cafe and mini market as well as the municipal
Swimming pool where lounging on lawns under palm trees was a real treat after crowded beaches. Will definitely come back as we liked being able to wander down to busy central Antibes without being overwhelmed by tourists and noise when we came back to the apartment.
Many thanks for the generous and informative review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and felt at home and Abul and I look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Thank you Deepa,
We had a wonderful week in your apartment. It is lovely and bright, spacious, clean and well equipped. We made good use of the beach umbrellas and bat and ball provided. Nicole was very welcoming. The location was great for the train station. Antibes is a gorgeous place. We took your advice and climbed to the top of the apartment block for amazing views and to watch the sunset. We didn't want to leave and hope to return again.
Thank you for the lovely review. So happy that you enjoyed the apartment and the views! We would be very happy for you to return and look forward to welcoming you again.
All the best

Very welcoming neighborhood!
Nicely set up, clean, and well-equipped apartment that suited our needs to sleep, wash, and feed six adults and two small children. Neighbors, despite all the noise the two small terrors generated, were extremely welcoming -- "Enjoy your stay with us," one family said. It's an easy, and interesting walk by the old town walls to two safe, stony beaches, or there's a swimming pool 200m. away. There's a small Casino market with many of the essentials 300m. away. Nicely done, Deepa.
Thank you Graham for your generous comments. Abul and I are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in the apartment. I would agree our neighbours are lovely! :-)
We wish you and your family well and hope to welcome you again in the future.

Spacious and well appointed apartment
A heartfelt thank you to Deepa for all the care and attention that has so obviously been put into this lovely apartment. It is probably one of the best holiday houses we have ever rented, and we have rented a few. We had a fantastic week and Nicole, the housekeeper, was very helpful.
The centre of old town Antibes itself is very close by and we felt the smaller, more enclosed beach (which is nearer) was probably the best of the three we encountered.
Speedos are compulsory at the Olympic sized municipal swimming pool at the end of the road, so be prepared. (We weren't, and had to borrow a pair. I'm sure they gave me the smallest they could find...)
Eating out is a bit hit and miss; Mister Pizza around the corner is good and not too expensive. We found a lot of very average places charging very high prices in the town.
Possibly the best times we had were at the apartment itself. There are two balconies for sunlovers, a decent DVD library (in English) and space to spread out and relax, eating food from the nearby supermarket and boulangerie.
All in all, a very enjoyable holiday. Recommended.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review it is greatly appreciated. Also, many thanks for the additional useful information. We are very happy that you enjoyed your time in Antibes and hope to welcome you again in the future. All the best Abul and Deepa
Relaxing stay in a great location
A lovely couple of weeks. The flat is spacious and comfortable and the owners are really friendly and helpful. Handy for town and beach, and just around the corner from the bus and train station, which makes it for easy day trips without the need for a hire car. Also means getting to and from Nice airport is very convenient. There's a great little bakery a couple of minutes away, perfect for breakfast pastries!
Thank you so much for the generous comments. Abul and I are really happy that you and your family had a lovely time in Antibes and we hope to welcome you again in the near future.
All the best
