Incredible Antibes Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights at this property, which is wonderfully renovated while retaining the rustic old town location it deserves. Everything worked beautifully, the location is unmatched and the ease of communication and assistance with the owners and manager was fantastic. When you see the location on the map you will wrongfully assume it will be noisy because of it's proximity to great restaurants and the market. On the contrary, every night (including the weekends) was one of restful, quiet and calm sleep. The point of contact, Suzanne, was personable, flexible and had great recommendations for our stay. When we return to la Cote d'Azur we will stay in Antibes just so we can return to this property!

This is the Place to Stay on the French Rivera

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Maison du Bateau for the month of March 2017 was an absolute treat. Owners Paul & Tom have created a gem of a home for all their guests while on holiday. The web site describes exactly what awaits the visitor, so I will not repeat all the amazing amentities. From the initial booking correspondence, through to the deposit payments and security deposit refund all was smooth and efficient. Even though our flight arrived four hours earlier than anticipated, Suzanne our contact was their to greet us with all the necessary information to complete our stay.

Kudos to the interior designers, for the entire house, special mention on the master bedroom from the furnishings and the one window with a view of a wall of ivy and the other with streaming sunshine make for a room that can only be described as refined comfort. The second bedroom allowed for sitting at the window in the sunshine, which allows anyone to thoroughly enjoy reading and writing. And all other rooms in the house were equally enjoyable. And the skylights were an added joy. And the kitchen a delight for any cook.

Antibes is definitely the place to be while in the South of France, I truly understand why Paul & Tom chose this area to be their home. It is close to the bigger cities of Nice and Cannes and the Italian border is just an hour away. And while Antibes Old Town is just as popular, still gives the feeling of peace & quiet. Taking the train and local bus is within easy walking distance, five minutes to the bus and less than fifteen minutes to the train. And if you prefer to just stay in Antibes, there are many places to sit and walk and relax.

March can have fickle weather anywhere in the world, but the weather gods were on our side providing blue skies, sunshine and temperatures ranging from15-19 degrees daily except for three half days of rain.

Once again, Antibes is the place to be, in one of the homes that Tom & Paul have made available for visitors.

Outstanding accommodation. This place is superb.

  • 5 of 5

This property is magnificently equipped and provides so many extras as well. It is luxurious and spacious and yet is next,ed into the old town in a beautiful location. 50metres away is a daily food market each morning and I think is just a few minutes more walk to bigger shops, restaurant and cafes. It is a solid 15 minute walk to the station (Gare de Antibes) which is not really possible if you have luggage. You need to use a taxi which stops nearby because it the property is on a pedestrian only street/lane way.

The communication from the owners was excellent and we were met and shown around by Suzanne who who not have been more helpful. She also saw us off at the end when we left.

This really is a lovely place to stay and the property is first class in every way.

We would certainly stay again if in Antibes.

Perfect combination of style...location and comfort for your time in Antibes.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week in Maison du Bateau. Booked very far in advance with Antibes-Rental as their properties are very popular. All communications were replied to promptly and booking process very easy. Advance detailed info was very much appreciated including restaurants in case you want to pre-book. Their recommendations were very good. This stylish two level townhome has a perfect location in the heart of the old town of Antibes and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in the city. The famous Marche Provencal is just 1/2 block away and it is the best place for shopping. We did lunch in the townhouse...all fresh from the market. We did not even begin to use all the gadgets in the was stocked with everything you could need as was the entire townhouse. If you have mobility issues probably not your spot as bedrooms are upstairs. There is no apt. on top and it was very quiet. There are other apt that share a courtyard. They were all very respectful of each other. The townhouse does have a small table outside but it was hot and we mostly stayed inside when home. The a/c is modern and central...none of those antique units you often find in rentals. Suzanne was the greeter and very helpful in both check in and check out ...we really had no issues so did not need to contact her. I really searched to find just the right spot in Antibes and this was it. Antibes itself also is small enough (especially in the old town) to feel comfortable but so easy to visit other spots on the coast or inland. I highly recommend Antibes-Rental and this townhouse and hope to return.

My wife and daughter found this wonderful place online, and when I walked in I could hardly believe my eyes: not only is the house located in the best, most centrally located part of the old town of Antibes, but it's also perfectly quiet even with the windows wide open at night (which is how we like to sleep). The house itself is a work of art: tastefully and lovingly furnished and decorated, well-appointed and might even say luxurious (but in a non-ostentatious way). To put it simply: I cannot think of a better place to stay than here if you have a week or two to explore the many wonders in this corner of the world where countless amazing sights await the curious traveler within only a short walking or driving distance of this most special home. Kudos to Tom and Paul who have done a terrific job of restoring this property to its glory days!! We will hold special memories of 14 Rue du Bateau for as long as we live...

Car: not necessary

Set on one of the most picturesque streets of vieux Antibes between the Musée Picasso and the Marché Provençal, Maison du Bateau provides the perfect setting to enjoy the quaint cobbled streets, casual cafés and glamorous beaches of the French Rivera.

Plage de la Gravette is located five minutes from the house. This small beach is great for families with young children as it is very safe (sheltered from waves by a small breakwater). Antibes also boasts several private beaches with casual restaurants and beach seating available. Visitors should also explore the larger beaches at Juan Les Pins, on the opposite side of the Cap d'Antibes, as well as its many restaurants and specialty shops.

Maison du Bateau is located steps away from the daily Provencal market. Rosé wines, olives, lavender, seafood, goat cheese and Cavaillon melons are among some of the regional specialties on offer.

Visitors should also check out the cathedral and the old ramparts of Antibes. The town has several museums, the best of which are the Picasso Museum and the Peynet Museum.
