Light and airy fully furnished apartment with a 180 degree view overlooking the Mediterranean sea. Gated entry system with full time guardian. 4th floor of 5 - lift serviced. Equipped with 32" wide LCD cable TV (Digital Channels), High-Speed Wi-Fi broadband, 3 DVD players(regions 1,2, Blu-Ray). Free telephone calls to international landlines as well as French, US and Canadian mobile phones.
Approximately 60 sq metres, the apartment comprises of a large living/dining room with wall to wall patio doors leading out to the balcony which overlooks a private walkway and the sea, a fully equipped kitchen complete with all new and modern appliances, 2 bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, 1 bath/shower room and separate toilet room. The residence has allocated private parking for 1 car. There is also a large bowling green and a park with a stunning view of the sea behind the residence in case you fancy a picnic close to home :-). This is secured entrance for residents of the complex only.
It has a comfortable capacity of 4 people but can accommodate 6 by using the sofa bed in the living room which converts to a double bed. Master bedroom has a double bed, 2nd bedroom has 2 single beds.
Situated in a quiet location, the apartment is within easy walking distance to either Antibes or Juan Les Pins. Just 2 minutes by car or bus from Antibes or Juan Les Pins beaches, shops, restaurants, and leisure facilities. Nearest beach is the Juan Les Pins beach - which is approximately 9 - 15 minutes by foot.
Antibes occupies a prime location between Nice and Cannes making travel to either town quick and easy. For a relaxed and chilled atmosphere - Antibes beach and old town are unbeatable. There are buses directly outside the apartment that run to Antibes centre every 15 minutes (cost = 1 euro/time to get there = 3 minutes). Alternatively you can just walk there (approximately 20 minutes walk).
For the younger – or simply younger at heart – there is Juan Les Pins - which is a 15 minute walk or 2 minute car ride from the apartment. Juan Les Pins is full of fun bars and restaurants and the shops stay open until very late at night too :-) The buses stop at around 8.30pm so if you expect to stay out late, be prepared for some exercise walking back as taxis in this region of the South are few and can be expensive.
Access: If you are coming from Nice airport, Antibes is approximately a 40 minute bus ride depending on traffic. There are scheduled buses running from the airport regularly (The Cannes No 200 and the newly commissioned tourist Express 250 costing around 10 euros one way).

What a perfect stay!
We were traveling with a car and our 6 month baby girl and the apartment was exactly what we needed and more.
Lorna and her family were extremely kind to us....we had a bad experience in Nice, we booked Lorna´s apartment early in the morning and we were checking in that very same day. A great relief to find this apartment and such a lovely family as hosts.
The apartment it´s clean, bright and very tastefully decorated. It was wonderful to have breakfast in the balcony with the city and sea view. During the evenings we enjoyed a glass of wine and the peace of the area, admiring the sea/port view. Thanks Lorna again for such a great stay!!
It was my second time at Lorna's and it was fantastic! The apartment is clean and light. Lorna and Christian have been kind, helpful and available if needed.
Easy access to bus stop right around the corner, as well as grocery store, bakery etc. No problem if you are without a car.
I can highly recommend the apartment!
Superbe appartement tout confort, très propre, parfaitement équipé et décoré, avec jolies vues mer côté séjour et chambre double, et balcon agréable pour prendre les repas. Excellent accueil par Lorna. Bonne situation par rapport à de petits commerces voisins. Pour les accès aux plages, prévoir de prendre la voiture ou le bus du fait de leur éloignement et des voies à emprunter qui n'ont rien de pittoresque. Aucune hésitation à recommander fortement cet appartement.
We had a great time in Lorna's sea view apartment!
We appreciated the warm welcome with champagne (thanks again Lorna :-)) and the awesome view from the balcony. The furnitures are very nice with lovely decorations. You can find everything you need.
The only point in our opinion is that you need a car as it is not that close to the beaches as expected, but it is walkable. You can find a small supermarket, a bakery and a butcher just around the corner.
It is a great place to discover the cote d'azur - we can highly recommend Lorna and her apartment!
We had a great stay in Lornas beatiful apartment. The apartment fully met our expectations and was very well equipped. The view from the balcony was great and it was a great place to have breakfast in the morning. Lorna had provided a lot of written information and she and her husband was available for any questions we might have. Thus great apartment and great hosts.
We loved having the extra space in this apartment during our stay in Antibes. It was a bit of a hike from the main train station, but it was wonderful waking up in the morning with a view over the city and the sea. The sun pours onto the balcony in the morning making it warm even on November mornings. Lorna was helpful and provided lots of materials in the apartment on where to go and answer any questions we had. Good stay.
We had a excellent stay at Lorna's sea view apartment. Lorna and her husband were great. They were kind, helpful and readily available to answer questions. The apartment itself was well equipped, comfortable, clean and accessible to the centre of town and surrounding areas. We really enjoyed the spectacular views and its excellent location. I would highly recommend staying here, and would happily return.

Hi - I'm Lorna and I was born and brought up in sunny Scotland :-) After graduating and travelling for some time, I worked in London, Spain and now live and work here in the South of France with my husband and 2 children. I've been based in this region for 14 years and I can guarantee that you will have a very enjoyable and relaxing time here. Hope to meet you soon! Lorna.
