Not like me to give full marks as I am typically very critical but it was a joy to not be able to find fault – very rarely do I come across such high standards. Olga was a superb host, meeting me at the local station and showing me to her lovely apartment, which had the largest terrace I have ever stayed at with a beautiful view of the sea, a cake shop and supermarket right opposite the apartment and a lovely swimming pool. She had stocked the fridge with some wine, beer, water and orange juice which I did my best to replace when I left. Antibes is easy to get to by train or bus, the shingle beach is only a 5 minute walk away and the other way is a delightful old town with an abundance of quality restaurants and nice walks. But for me, it was a sheer delight to stock up from the supermarket, cake and pizza shop very close by and LAZE about on the terrace sun bathing, reading and listening to my music or E-books (headphones) throughout the day looking at amazing sun rising, the clear blue skies and then looking up at the stars and listening to the hum of the crickets in the evening( so Mediterranean). Total relaxation !! . She even provide a simple electronic barbecue for guest’s use as well. Amazing value and a real concern and wish for me to have a good time which I certainly did. Not wishing to embarrass her further, but I have travel a great deal in my life especially around Europe and stayed in many hotels, how I wish hotel staff had just a fraction of Olga’s true instinctive wish to be a remarkable host, give value for money and a deep wish for people staying in her apartment to relax and have a well deserve holiday. Merci Becoup Olga.
