If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big places - St Tropez, Montecarlo, Monaco, Nice, Cannes and Juan les Pins, but still want to be really near to enjoy their facilities, you might try this nice old place here at Cap d'Antibes on an exclusive quiet Cap, but within easy reach of the special events and, most importantly within only 400 metres of beaches on two sides. Many places say "holiday accommodation 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. This place really is conveniently situated near to a wonderful food shop - so fresh croissants are on the menu for breakfast every morning.

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 Garoupe 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!'
