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!'

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 firstname.lastname@example.org - titling your email "Antibes" if you are interested and would like further details.
