The apartment is situated on a small cobbled pedestrian street inside the most photographed and painted stone archway in Old Antibes.
It is tranquil, bright, picture perfectly French and lies between the Ancient Stone Sea Wall and the Provencal Market in Antibes.
This is the oldest quarter of Antibes. The building originates in the 1200's and housed the clergy of the Cathedral. There are 3 abandoned tunnels below. One leading to the Cathedral, one to the sea and the third to a Monastery long since gone.
As you enter through the ancient timber door of the building and up to the second floor (not too many steps) the apartment is open plan and airy with many windows, which is unusual in the Old Town.
The solid timber painted kitchen with oak benchtops is fully equipped. There is a 4 ring electric hob, oven, large fridge/freezer and even a small dishwasher. The washing machine is hidden away in a cupboard nearby.
A pretty table and 4 chairs with overhead chandelier sits in the dining area alongside the now ornamental fireplace.
Up 3 steps to the next level, seating is ideally placed at the large French Window in the living room looking down on to the cobbled street below.
A perfect spot for your morning coffee or a glass of wine later in the day to simply to watch the world go by. Perhaps you will catch a glimpse of a bride and groom as they emerge from the 12th Century Cathedral at the end of the street. Up here you are actually sitting inside the archway. A comfortable sofa, which can be converted to a bed, 2 relaxing wicker armchairs, TV with English language channels, DVD and I-Pod complete the living area.
Again up a few stairs to the most Romantic Bedroom in town, complete with dormer window views to the Cathedral Bell Tower. Don't worry! The bells are silent during the night when the town sleeps. The bedroom has a wardrobe and chest of drawers. For the warmer months there is a fan and portable air conditioning unit.
All other areas of the apartment are fitted with ceiling fans and also wall mounted heating units for the cooler months.
In the fully tiled bathroom there is a natural stone vanity, a heated towel rail and a Free Standing Bath with shower overhead. A perfect place for a relaxing soak at the end of another stunning Riviera day.

This place would love your review
When you book this place, here’s where your review will show up!
My husband and I owned and operated our own boating school for many years then decided to leave home and begin a new career running large Sail and Motor Yachts in Europe and beyond.
After sailing the seas for many years I began taking care of my daughter's beautiful holiday apartment in Antibes. We are new to Airbnb but have been welcoming happy guests for 5 years now - "Great Location, Home From Home", "We Loved It!", "Truly A Unique and Special Apartment", A True Gem", "Fabulous"
I Love the sea, books, movies and travel.
