We travelled as a family group so there were 8 adults in our group and every one of us felt that the accommodation was outstanding. This beautiful villa is obviously lovingly maintained to a very high standard by its owner. Helen actually greeted us on arrival and explained how everything from the cooker to the brilliant gas barbecue worked, answered any queries we had and assured us that if we had any problems during our stay she would be happy to sort them out. We had no problems settling in but she was so kind and thoughtful she texted us next day to check all was ok with us. Helen had even left some basic food and treats in the kitchen to keep us going until we got to the shops, so very thoughtful. Bed linen, towels etc all superb and of a very high quality. The property was outstanding, honestly couldn’t think of any improvements. So well resourced both inside and out and everything was clean and well maintained. Very secure. Great location. Superb. Outdoor dining facilities were wonderful as indeed were the indoor. Pool was also very clean. Sun loungers and parasols were all clean and again very well maintained. So easy to relax in such a beautiful Villa. Thank you Paul and Helen for your part making our stay in Antibes so pleasant and stress free, from booking right through to end of our stay. Well done! - Michael from Derry Oct 22.
The pictures and description of this property simply do not do it justice! From the moment we arrived, we were met with open arms. The owners prepared a special welcome kit for us, and made sure we had everything we needed for our weeklong stay in Antibes. The house is beautiful - well kept, clean, very well decorated, and spacious. The outdoor space is an oasis nestled just above the old city of Antibes. Mornings on the patio with our coffee and croissants, afternoon bbq's and late night wine by the pool are a must. It was very hard to pry ourselves from the house to explore the Cote D'Azur, but we did, and found the house to be incredibly well located. Minutes from the main highway, we were able to get to Nice, Cannes, Eze, and St Paul de Vence with ease. We highly recommend a stay at this villa, and we absolutely hope to be back here again in the future. Bravo and thank you! - Mr K. from USA, Aug 22.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Great house and great location. Helen (the owner) went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we could possibly need for our week in Antibes. The large gas BBQ made cooking on an evening a pleasure with local butchers, bakers and supermarkets ensuring everything you need is only a 10-minute walk away. The villa was ideal for families with many different sleeping arrangements available. Additional items for children were also a blessing. Cot beds (x2), High chairs (x2), Bed Guard, Cutlery, Plates, bowls. Also, there was a large amount of beach and swimming pool equipment available to use eg: arm bands, goggles, rubber rings as well as beach mats and umbrellas. Great for families thinking of buying or bringing their own. The downhill walk into town was approximately 10 minutes to the Place Général de Gaulle where you can find Monoprix supermarket and a selection of restaurants and bakeries. A further 5-10 minutes will find you in the centre of a beautiful town - Samuel from the UK, Aug 22.

Our stay in Antibes was absolutely fantastic. We were 8 friends and stayed for a week. We got a warm welcome and the house was clean, spacious and beautiful. It’s located close to Antibes town and the ocean which we loved. We also hung out by the pool for some days, that was really nice too. I can highly recommend to pay a visit here, both friends and families - Ms H. from Sweden, July 22.
The house exceeded our expectations. Every corner, every detail was thought of - the kitchen is fully kitted with tools such as nutrabullet blender, garlic press, grater - nothing was missing. We were also impressed with how immaculately clean the house was. Our host Helen’s hospitality is to be mentioned as well. She was so easy to communicate with and extremely warm, helpful with everything, always available to us. We couldn’t recommend staying at this beautiful house more! - Mrs K. from London, July 22.

Great stay at a really nice and very well-maintained villa. Loved the kitchen, outdoor areas, and pool. Easy walk into the town of Antibes and quick ubers to a number of smaller beaches on the Cap that were fantastic. Would definitely stay again - Mr K. from USA, May 22.
We had a wonderful stay at this house. The place is amazing and the beds were really comfortable too. Check in and out was very easy.

Paul, We are having a lovey time. This villa is gorgeous and Helen was a wonderful host when we arrived. Thanks - Mr & Mrs H. from Bucks, April 22.
Paul was brilliant, I rang and told him my wish list and he said he thought he had just the right thing and he did, perfect. The location was great just close enough to town but far enough away to avoid the noise and hustle and bustle. The villa itself was amazing, beautifully kept, decorated and the bedding, towels etc were of such a high standard. Absolutely outstanding. The kitchen fully equipped. Just first class. - Mrs D. from Leicester, Aug 20.
