Great little town house in old antibes in quiet little pedestrian street, we spent seven nights here and loved it. Best spanish restauant next door, best pastry shop just down the road and beach only 5 minutes walk. Sarah met us at the house and showed us everything and was more than helpful. Would not hesitate to stay here anytime in the future. Antibes is a wonderful little town with alot to offer or you can train to anywhere for a day trip.

We spent a week here in July and really enjoyed it. The location was right in the old town, but on a quieter street with low foot traffic.
The house was well equipped, and had recently been updated with new appliances and cupboards in the kitchen.
We also had really great service from Sarah and 5-Star. We had left one of our bags in the house, and Sarah went above and beyond what we expected to ensure that the bag was forwarded to our next destination.

We enjoyed our stay in antibes, and the apartment location was perfect, but we were a bit disappointed of the apartment.
* prior leaks or insufficient laundry of wash cloths left the apartment with a nasty smell (we tried drying the wash cloths and placing them on the terrace, but it took a week and some air fresheners to make the stay in the living room comfortable)
* Apartment was not a clean as we would hope and have been used to when renting apartments in other parts of France northern and southern Spain.
* The living room was a bit different than illustrated on the site, the living room is pictured differently than the actual layout, as there was an extra sofa in the living room. This makes it very difficult to seat more than 3 persons when eating. We planned on making some dinners in house, but being 6 persons for half our stay, this was impossible with the extra sofa.
It didn't help to have a massive leak in the bathroom, and having plumbers etc visiting our apartment at least 4 of the days.
It is unfortunate that there were plumbing problems during your stay - occasionally these things happen that are beyond our control. In this instance, there was a problem with the plumbing to the bath which caused a leak down into the kitchen, We did do our best however to call out plumbers and get this rectified, working around you wherever possible since we felt that this was preferable to not having the problem repaired. We also offered the option of moving to another property at the time.
We are a little surprised about the comments concerning the linens and cleanliness - all guests receive a personal check in and are told that should anything be amiss, then they can call at any time and we will try to rectify the problem.
We can only apologise and hope that the charms of the house and the fantastic location of the house, as well as the beautiful setting of Antibes, more than made up for these small inconveniences.
This villa will have some modifications done to the ground floor in June 2013, one of them is to have a new kitchen fitted. We will take your points into consideration with regards to having a bigger dining area :-)
Should you wish to return to Antibes, then I am sure you would leave more than satisfied.

We had a really lovely stay in apartment in antibes.
We fell in love with this place as we passed a door step. We stayed there with family of 3 children, it felt like home. You can hear the old antibes noise, but in a very good way... There is a restaurant next door. Around the corner there is a brasserie. It's really warm and welcome place in heart of old antibes.

A stone's throw from the old town of antibes, its beaches, and the essential amenities of supermarkets, whilst being tucked away on a quiet pedestrian street. Our young children don't have far to walk home from the beach in the evening, but don't get disturbed by the noisier streets close by. The house is well equipped. It's layout is flexible allowing separate space for kids to play and adults to relax. We like to think of it as our house in antibes - for a week-or-two a year anyway.

This is a traditional house that many of us would like to own. Quirky, in need of a little tlc with all the life and charm that allows one to be a part of the old town. The property managers are helpful and were great with collecting us from the airport and giving us a few pointers.
