This beautiful, almost hundred year old, mansion reflects a bygone colonial time with linen suits, panama hats, long skirts and huge hat creations. A quiet walk in the garden takes you back to an earlier era when the french riviera was a haven for English aristocrats on their way out into the world on behalf of the Queen/King.
The entire renovation of the house has focused on preserving the house's "art nouveau" identity. At the garden dinner table under the shade of the Magnolia you can enjoy an authentic provencal meal or why not a French cheese plate, accompanied by the blackbirds singing in the trees.
The house consists of three floors and a guest house. A total of 6 bedrooms with room for 13 adults (or 10 adults and 6 children/youths), 4 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, dining room and studio.
The garden is 2500 square meters and has a fenced heated pool (11x5 m) with Jacuzzi. The water is kept at 27/28 degrees from the first of May to the 15th of October. During the winter, the pool is closed. In the pool area there is also a fully equipped Cabana bar for nice relaxing afternoons. Make your own refreshing Mojito with mint leaves from the herb garden when the sun is in its zenith.
Take a 10 minutes walk to reach the charming old town of Antibes and stroll the streets filled with little boutiques, markets and restaurants, visit the beach or check out the impressive port of Antibes. Despite the central location the house is not disturbed by traffic, the area is an isolated green island surrounded by hedges and walls.
The well-tended garden has palm trees, mimosa, roses and a herb garden for your own use. There is also a croquet lawn with mallets, wickets and balls and a Petanque court for afternoon activities.
