Antibes : an ideal destination for a dream vacation
Antibes, nestled on the French Riviera, offers an exquisite blend of history, culture, and breathtaking landscapes, making it an ideal destination for a memorable vacation. The Old Town, enclosed by ancient ramparts, boasts charming cobblestone streets lined with vibrant markets, boutiques, and quaint cafes. Visitors can explore the iconic Picasso Museum, housed in the Château Grimaldi, where the celebrated artist lived and worked in 1946. The vibrant colors of Antibes' marketplaces, coupled with the delightful aroma of local produce, create an immersive sensory experience for travelers.
Beyond its rich cultural offerings, Antibes also features pristine Mediterranean beaches, inviting azure waters, and a picturesque coastline. Plage de la Salis and Plage de la Gravette are popular spots for sunbathing and swimming, providing a perfect setting for relaxation. Yacht enthusiasts can marvel at the luxurious vessels in the Port Vauban, one of the largest marinas in Europe. The Cap d'Antibes peninsula offers scenic hiking trails with panoramic views of the sea, while the Ile de Lérins islands, just off the coast, are ideal for a tranquil day trip.
Culinary enthusiasts will find Antibes to be a gastronomic haven, offering a diverse range of culinary delights. Local seafood, Provençal cuisine, and Mediterranean flavors dominate the menus of charming seaside restaurants. Exploring the lively Marché Provençal, visitors can savor fresh produce, artisanal cheeses, and aromatic spices, providing an authentic taste of the region.
With its captivating blend of history, natural beauty, and culinary excellence, a vacation in Antibes promises an unforgettable experience
I would like to thank Judy & Jonathan for their warm welcome. We had a wonderful stay for 2. They gave us a warm welcome, organised everything so that our stay went as smoothly as possible with little touches on their part that made us very happy.
The accommodation is just as sublime as on the photos, even better. It is superbly well equipped, with a fitted kitchen and everything you need. The flat was very clean and tidy.
The sea view is just amazing, you can't get enough of it. The view offers great sunrises and sunsets.
As for the location, it is perfectly situated next to everything, in the heart of Viel Antibes. Next to restaurants, bars, bakeries, shops, etc... All within a 2-minute walk.
I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to spend an unforgettable stay in Antibes.

Stunning views, perfect location in the old town. Easy walk to market, shops, & restaurants. Train station 10 minute walk for day trips up & down the coast. We have stayed in Antibes many times and know our way around but 1st timers will find the location perfect for getting around the Côte d'Azur.

We had a fabulous 5 night stay here celebrating our 25th anniversary and everything was exceptional. The hosts were very kind, helpful and communicative and offered excellent recommendations. The apartment was conveniently located and very comfortable. It worked out as a very nice central home base to explore the area. You should BOOK this wonderful place. You will NOT regret it. Judy and Jonathon were excellent hosts. I am so grateful that they were willing to share their lovely apartment with us. It truly was a special place and one that we would love to return to again.

One of the best experiences we have had across our vacation stays, with our fam of 4 (2 young kids). The house, its location is better than described. Right in the center of town, a 1 min walk to a beach, and some of the most amazing sunrise and sunset views off the balcony. The house has an extremely well stocked kitchen to make some great memories. The pull out couch in the living room was very comfortable, to accomodate 2 people easily. Aircon worked v well for one of the hotter days in the area. Our kids had plenty of beach toys and games to stay entertained. Judy helped us plan our trip out, even before our arrival - and their restaurant and local tips made our stay memorable. If you're in doubt - just book this home !

We had a wonderful experience in Antibes and very much enjoyed our stay at this beautiful apartment. The owners were extremely nice and had great communication with us. They greeted us when we arrived, showed us around the apartment, and shared tips on places to visit and restaurants to try. They even set up a dinner reservation for us, which was our favorite meal in Antibes. The apartment was thoughtfully equipped with everything w possible for a comfortable and convenient stay - beach stuff, plentiful towels, extra pillows and blankets, kitchenware, etc. We visited Antibes during a heatwave in August, and the apartment stayed nice and cool. We were always comfortable in the apartment! I would be remiss not to mention the location of the apartment. It was seriously perfect! The view from the balcony is amazing. You get a beautiful view of the public beach, which was well-maintained, and you can see lots of gorgeous yachts. The apartment was easy to walk to and from - from everywhere in Antibes, including the train station. My family highly recommends renting this wonderful apartment. We hope to visit Antibes again because we loved it so much, and we will definitely stay here again!

We love France and particularly the Provence, and have spent many holidays in lovely places over the years….but this place is the most wonderful we ever had. Situated at the remparts of the old town with breathtaking views at the beach, the port, Nice and the whole eastern coastline…. you just can spend the whole day ( and evening) watching the bustling life from the balcony. The apartment is beautiful and equipped with absolutely everything you might need. Thank you so much Judy and Jonathan for taking such good care of us during our stay! You are lovely people.

On returning to Antibes we wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else. Restaurants on the doorstep, the market a few steps away & of course the hostess Judy who is a fountain of information. What’s not to love😀

I don't believe I've ever had a better experience with VRBO than I have with Jonathan and Judy's property. Not only is their property the most stunning in the area, but the kind and communicative experience Jonathan and Judy were able to provide was above anything I've ever experienced. They booked restaurant reservations, beach club reservations, picked us up from the train station, gave us a ride to the Nice airport, and provided a bottle of rose upon arrival for us to enjoy on the dreamiest balcony overlooking the Mediterranean after a long travel day. I can't put into words how their attention to detail and hospitality put us international travelers at ease during our stay in Antibes. Antibes is the most charming town. The train station makes getting to other coastal towns very accessible, but I bet you'll find yourself wanting to soak up the charm of Antibes and not wanting to leave. We miss morning coffee and night caps on the balcony watching the yachts come and go. We spent 4 nights at this beautiful place, and honestly, it wasn't enough. I feel so lucky to have been able to enjoy their little slice of heaven, and I do plan to return to Jonathan and Judy's magical property in the future with at least a week stay! If you're on the fence, book it! I promise you won't regret it!

We had a short stay in the French Rivera. Antibes was never on our radar initially (until running into this VRBO listing) but ended up being the perfect location on the French Rivera, close to everything you want to visit but away from the hectic Nice. It is beautifully located in the old town of Antibes with everything within walking distance including the marina, Picasso museum, lots of great restaurants, etc. The views of the water from the balcony every morning/day really are a wonderful thing to look at and I imagine great to swim in during warmer times. Johnathan and Judy themselves showed great hospitality with introductions and goodbyes, as well as great recommendations for restaurants. They definitely go the extra mile! Highly recommend trusting all the great reviews and stay here if you can find the availability. We left wishing we could have stayed longer and hope to return.
