F A Q
Will I enjoy Antibes?
Yes! Antibes has something for everyone. It’s in an exceptional location on the French Riviera with close to 300 days of sunshine each year. Some of the highlights are sandy beaches, a quaint old town, museums, countless restaurants and cafes, great shopping, the Provencal market and yacht harbour.
Should I book one of your apartments?
Absolutely! You will be booking direct with the owner, we have been established since 2005 and you will be getting genuine personal service from us, as well as a super apartment of course.
What is included in the rental price?
A comprehensive guide to the apartment and area sent ahead of arrival, quality bedlinens and towels, beach towels & umbrella, hotel style toiletries and a mid-stay change of linens and towels for stays of two weeks or more, all utilities including wireless internet and the end of stay clean.
What is the minimum stay?
From May to September the minimum stay is 6 nights, with a Saturday or Sunday arrival and a Friday or Saturday departure. Out of these months we are more flexible, with the minimum stay being 4 nights.
Should I book direct?
Yes, when you book direct with us you are getting the best price as you won’t be paying any commission fees, but you can also find all the apartments on HomeAway, Booking.com and Airbnb if you prefer.
How do I book?
You can book online with your credit card or by Paypal, just follow the instructions on the ‘Book your stay’ page.
What are the check in and check out times?
Check in is from 3.30pm and check out by 10.30am, however, where possible we try to accommodate earlier arrivals/later checkouts. We do not accept any bookings for arrivals to the apartments after 9pm
How do I get from Nice airport?
The easiest option from the airport is by taxi. There is a rank outside arrivals at both terminals and you will get from door to door in about 25 minutes. The cost is approximately 70 Euros depending on time of day/amount of luggage. If you take a taxi from the rank here it is a good idea to have the map printed off to show them where you’re going as they often won’t know!
If you prefer you can pre-book a car with a taxi company who will meet you at arrivals for 60 euros, this information will be sent to you in the welcome guide. Uber also operate here if you have the App.
There is a bus service that goes from both terminals to Antibes, the number 250, every 30 minutes, which costs 11 Euros per person one way and 17 Euros return, but be aware that the Antibes stop is next to the train station, so may be a longish walk with luggage depending on the apartment you are walking to.
Where can I park?
You really don’t need a car to get around, but if you do come by car there is free parking opposite Fort Carre on Avenue 11 novembre, with a shuttle bus that runs every 15 minutes to bring you in to town (approximately 2km). The parking at Ponteil beach, Boulevard James Wyllie, is also free all year apart from 15th June-15th September. There are several Q-Park car parks in town where you can buy a weekly pass for 62 Euros, see their website here: https://www.q-park-resa.fr/en/car-park/antibes-8.html
How do we access the apartment?
Michelle will meet you at the apartment. She will already have your flight arrival time and will have arranged with you to call/text or Whatsapp when you land.
What if I have a problem or query during my stay?
Michelle and Gary live in the old town too, so are never far away. If there is something we can’t fix over the phone one of us will pop over as soon as possible.
Do we need to clean the apartment before we leave?
You don’t need to clean the property, the end of stay clean is included, but we do ask that you leave it in a clean and tidy condition.
Do you take a security deposit?
Yes, we collect 200 euros from the card you use to make your booking on the day before arrival and it is automatically returned on the day after your departure. The deposit is held to cover the cost of any damage or breakages during your stay.
Can I provide feedback on my stay?
Yes, we’d love to hear your feedback. Either through the site you booked with, right here on our website or on the Apartments in Antibes Facebook page.
