South of France Holiday Accommodation to rent on French Riviera

near Nice, Cannes, Juan les Pins at Cap d'Antibes

Côte d'Azur French Riviera accommodation to rent - holiday apartment to rent (sleeps 2-4)

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of St Tropez, Monaco - MonteCarlo, Nice, Cannes and Juan les Pins, but still want to be near enough to enjoy their facilities, you might fall in love with this place in Antibes. The Cap d'Antibes is quiet - a place of exclusive Hotels - (Eden Roc, for instance,) but it's within easy reach of the special events of the French Riviera and all the facilities of the Côte D'Azur.

It is also within only 400 metres of beaches to both East and West. Many holiday accommodation advertisements say "within 5 minutes of the beach" but in reality that's driving time rather than walking time - this really is walking time to the beach here. It is very conveniently situated.

A friend who was there this year writes:
'The Antibes experience was relaxing and the accommodation very nice! The things I liked best were the building itself, places to walk to, including the beach of course, the convenience of the food market across the street, and the atmosphere of the Cap, also nearness of old Antibes and the choice of beaches. Lastly,if possible, I would like to reserve the upper apartment again for next year . . . Thanks again for your hospitality!'

Not far from the Baie de Milliardaires, it enjoys wonderful unspoilt beauty. It is also near excellent value food shops with wonderful fresh vegetables and a Brasserie where a good meal will cost you about 45 francs, around £4.50.

The apartment is on the ground floor on the side away from the road. It is two rooms and sleeps 2 + 2 with a double bedroom and a sofabed in the living room. There is a kitchen area with dishwasher, fridge, washing machine and cooker with a hob and oven. Whilst many tourist resorts are crowded with people, the Cap d'Antibes is quiet enough to really enjoy dining outside on the terrace.

Price: from 2000 francs (£200) per week depending on number of people and dates. Please email jean@antespam.co.uk - titling your email "Antibes" if you are interested and would like further details.
