The apartment is part of a lovely Provençal villa, built in 1933.

There are 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath with bathtub and double sinks, a fully equipped kitchen, a living room/lounge, a 160 m2 private garden with a Weber charcoal kettle BBQ and deck, and a private parking space directly in front.

All bed, bath, and kitchen linens are provided and included in the price. Baby items (e.g. cot, high chair) are also on hand, free of charge. We want you to feel at home!

The space
*The apartment:
is part of a beautiful old villa, on a quiet street lined with old olive trees, where cicadas love to sing in summer.

The apartment has a private entrance, with a parking spot directly before the gate. The garden gate leads you through the private garden and past the sunny terrace to the front door. There is an outdoor shower by the door, for rinsing off the sand after visiting the beach, and then you climb the two marble steps up and enter the hall, where beautiful old tiles feel cool on your bare feet. To your left is the fully-equipped modern kitchen, complete with full-sized appliances (oven, 3 burner gas stove/hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine), to your right is the living room, with French doors that open onto the terrace, inviting you out into the garden. The living room has a large comfy sofa.
Continuing down the hall, the second door on your left is the bathroom, cheerfully tiled in white and orange, with a full bath and double sinks.

The last two doors on your left and right are the two bedrooms, both equipped with double beds and ceiling fans, for a cool and undisturbed night's sleep, or a nice snooze after a glass of rosé on the terrace.

*The terrace:
has teak furniture, a big parasol, and a top of the line Weber charcoal kettle barbecue for grilling whatever caught your eye at the market.

*The garden:
has been cultivated using only organic methods and is full of roses and 'herbes de Provence' - rosemary, thyme, sage, lavender... and the large tree at the foot of the garden is a culinary laurel (bay leaf tree). Feel free to add them to your cooking! The garden is home to quite a few adorable little lizards and frogs, who are somewhat shy but can be seen sunning themselves or hunting for insect prey.

*Environmental topics:
are very important to us, and the apartment has been renovated and maintained using environmentally-friendly, non-toxic, non-allergenic materials. The house is well-insulated to improve energy efficiency, with built-in air circulation systems to maintain indoor air quality. The lighting is energy efficient, our power is supplied by a renewable energy provider, and the garden has a drip-irrigation system to conserve water. Ceiling fans in the living room and both bedrooms, an awning, and shutters keep the apartment cool and comfortable in summer without air-conditioning, and in winter, there is a modern gas central heating with warm water radiators in every room, which keeps it warm and cozy.

*Children:
are very welcome! The apartment is child- and baby-friendly, and equipped with a foldable baby cot (crib) with organic latex mattress, high chair, baby bathtub and bath seat, potty and toilet seat reducer, as well as a step stool so younger children can use the sinks etc.

*The architecture:
is interesting - the house has an Asian name, and has some unique architectural features, including two dragons on the roof, a Buddha statue over the main door, and an octagon on the façade. The house was apparently designed and built according to feng-shui principles, and that is perhaps one of the reasons why the house has such a peaceful, inviting atmosphere.

Where you’ll be

Antibes, Alpes-Maritimes, France

The neighbourhood is directly adjacent to downtown Antibes, which means that everything is within easy walking distance: the old town (Vieil Antibes), the Marché Provençal, the Picasso Museum, the harbour, several beaches, all of the restaurants and shops and supermarkets and bakeries... The train and bus stations are also easily reached on foot. And although it's conveniently located, it is a quiet residential neighbourhood, where you can sleep in summer with open windows. (Please note, it is not beach front and it is not in the old town!)

The house is within a few minutes' walk of the CIA (Centre International d'Antibes, a well-known language school specialised in teaching French as a Foreign Language).

I'm Canadian by birth, grew up in California, but have lived and travelled all over. My husband is German, and we have a five year old daughter. We lived in Antibes until July 2014, when we moved back to Germany (for work reasons...). The apartment you see listed on AirBnB is our beloved home! It's very dear to us, which is why we decided to rent it instead of selling it. We hope you are as happy there as we have been. We have enlisted the help of our friend Barbara as manager, so you are in capable and caring hands during your stay.

During your stay

As guests are renting the entire flat, interaction will be low-key, just at arrival and departure for key hand over and inventory. This is done by our manager Barbara, a dear friend of ours who lives in Antibes and who takes care of our guests during their stay.

We have lived in Antibes since 2006, and the apartment has been our family home since 2010. We sadly had to relocate for work, which is why we decided to offer the flat for rent. That being said, we know Antibes and the local area very well and have prepared for our guests a book and online document containing our tips for the best places to eat and favourite things to do. Please let me know if you have any particular interests or requirements - we'll do our best to help you out!
