A beautifull little house, easy to find by car, a secure always available parking for the car. Her parents are very kind persons. All over a nice time thanks a lot
My bf and I had a pleasant stay, but we weren't expecting too much at all. We just wanted a clean place to crash for two nights and this served the purpose. We didn't meet Francoise, but did talk to her on the phone and she sounded nice. We were greeted by her mother who did not speak one word of English but was also pleasant. The place is fairly large, but has her endermologie equipment in it. There's no AC, just a fan. Be prepared to sweat. WIFI is sort of non-existant since you would have to go to the mother's porch to get it to work. The bed is like a see-saw-card board kind of thing. There's highway noise, but when we closed the wooden shutters it wasn't so noisy. We were provided clean towels, however the shower is sparse. No shower curtains and only a hand held shower head.
she also had a work appointment at the house from 11-2. it would have been annoying if we wanted to sleep in, but luckily we woke up early and went to the beach.
It's not a horrible place. It just depends on what you're expecting.
We stayed two nights in this accommodation. We travelled by car and had no problems with parking, as there are enough free parking areas around. Unfortunately, we didn't meet Francoise in person, we communicated with her via mobile phone. She was helpful and nice. Her mother was welcoming us. Even though she didn't speak any English, she tried her best to show us around the house. It was only a bit weird, when she kept my ID card until we left.
The accommodation is spacious and Francoise provided towels and clean bed linen. She also provided tea and coffee.
The only annoying thing were the ants in the house. When we left Antibes and opened our suitcases in Cannes, we found a lot of ants in our stuff. But overall, I would recommend this accommodation.
There's a nice garden for dining al fresco. Francoise is very friendly and speaks English. Her parents, in the adjacent house, are very kind and helpful if you need anything. For us, the house was a bit far out of town so your own transport is needed if you want to go out in the evenings as the buses stop running about 7.30pm, but it's budget accommodation in Antibes which is what we wanted.
The WORST experience I had with Airbnb.
1) This is NOT a house, this is an aesthetic surgery for the treatment of cellulite, adapted less or more like an house.
In the living room there is an hospital bed with a machine for the treatment leaning against the wall. (I made pictures of this and I post to Airbnb assistence yesterday).
There is not mention of this fact on the announcement.
2) The address is INCORRECT.The civic number is 1460 and not 1123 or 1118. Give a look to the map and see witch it is at the start of HIGHWAY.Only a deaf person can sleep well here.
3) We don't met the host, even thought we changed travel plane to arrive in Antibes after 7 P.M, as she wrote us on Saturday before.
We arrived at 7.35 P.M after long trip by car and welcomed us her old mother, who spoke only French.
She is the only honest person in this affair because she told us: "You can't sleep here without EARPLUGS."
It's not correct because I couldn't sleep here also with earplugs.
4) There is No TOWELS, NO SOAP, NOTHING in the fridge, only a one empty bottle of water.
5 )In the house there is NO WIFI connections, only crossed the garden next the mother house.
Perhaps she believes hosting vagabond or beggars.
For this "great treatment"we also had to leave a cautionary deposit of 80 euros and I leave my identity card to the mother of " Madame"until our departure.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!
PAYING MUCH LESS OR THE SAME IN OTHER CITIES OF "COTE AZUR" WE WERE TREATED LIKE KINGS NOT LIKE BEGGARS.
DO NOT STAY HERE!!
La PEGGIORE esperienza con Airbnb!
Questa non è una casa abitata, come lascia intendere tra le righe l'annuncio, non è nemmeno una casa, ma un centro estetico per il trattamento della cellulite.
Nel presunto salotto c'è un lettino, stile barella ospedaliera, ed appoggiata al muro una macchina per il trattamento. Per chi volesse ho foto che comprovano il tutto, già inviate al servizio di assistenza Airbnb, perchè spero siano fatte delle verifiche.
NON sopporto i furbi.
Dato che questo sito si basa sulla fiducia e la veridicità di quello che viene riportato, penso che annunci così fraudolenti dovrebbero essere controllati.
Il numero civico non è corretto infatti non corrisponde e solo poco prima del nostro arrivo la Signora ci ha fornito via sms il numero corretto che è 1460 route Grasse, come si può verificare sulla mappa o con street view si trova in tutt'altra posizione, cioè all'accesso dell'AUTOSTRADA.
Il rumore del traffico è ovviamente insopportabile anche con i tappi per le orecchie.
L'host non ci ha accolti al nostro arrivo nonostante avessimo modificato i programmi di viaggio per arrivare all'orario indicato, dopo le 19 di sera ( notasi che il ceck in sarebbe stato alle 15).
Con sms ci comunicava che se fossimo arrivati prima delle 18 avremmo potuto aspettare in giardino, lasciando i bagagli a casa della madre, in attesa che lei terminasse l'appuntamento che si era scordata di aver fissato tra le 18 e le 19.
Non so se mi spiego!!!
Se cambio i programmi di viaggio per venire incontro alle tue esigenze devi esserci all'orario indicato!
A differenza di tutti gli altri posti dove abbiamo soggiornato non ci è stato offerto nemmeno un bicchier d'acqua: frigo vuoto, niente sapone od asciugamani in bagno.
Un trattamento da pezzenti!
In più caso unico ho dovuto lasciare la mia carta d'identità alla madre della "Signora", neanche fossero l'HILTON, in custodia fino alla partenza, nonchè un deposito cauzionale di 80 euro trattenute direttamente alla prenotazione.
Il tutto per trascorrere una notte insonne con le finestre sbarrate per attenuare il rumore .
NON CONSIGLIO QUESTO POSTO!!!!
PAGANDO LO STESSO PREZZO O ANCHE MENO IN ALTRE LOCALITA' DELLA COSTA AZZURRA SIAMO STATI TRATTATI COME DEI RE!
Very nice house! Photos are worst than it actually is: a little house (a spacious living room, a bathroom and a bedroom) in a beautiful and romantic garden. We had our breakfast in the garden (where there are 2 chairs and a table). Ok you need the car to reach beaches and the center but it's been nice(next year we'll come back)
Francoise has little garden house which was nice. She was easy to connect and helpful. Our stay went well.
francoise is lovely and she makes sure your stay is wonderful! The place is a lovely 1 bedroom apartment with a lovely garden. I loved it! Thank you Francoise!
