Booking information
Interested in experiencing the charm of Les Trois Palmes and Old Antibes? Find out more

es Trois Palmes is a charming old Maison de Village (town house) right in the heart of things in picturesque Old Antibes. It is available for rent all year round and has all you need for a fun and relaxing break in one of the most beautiful spots on the Cote d'Azur.


Within Les Trois Palmes are two double beds, two singles and three double sofa beds. It is perfectly laid out to accommodate up to three couples or two families.

Apart from the fully self-contained studio (which has its own kitchenette and shower-room), there are two fully equipped kitchens, two bathrooms and a wc.

Plenty of room

Over six floors (including the studio), each of about 30 square metres, Les Trois Palmes offers seating for at least eight in the provencal kitchen dining area and the lounge and on the terrace for dining al fresco.

Peaceful haven

Particularly in the summer, Antibes is a bustling, lively place. But Rue Guilllaumont on which Les Trois Palmes is situated, despite being right in the centre, is remarkably quiet. There are no bars or restaurants actually on the street and very little traffic, while tourists are attracted mainly to Rue Sade, the market and other neighbouring streets.

The little lane Impasse Sade, also leading to Les Trois Palmes and the studio, is even quieter. There is no access to cars and it is solely used by the houses with front doors onto the lane.

Les Trois Palmes is available all year round. The Cote d'Azur is, of course, best known as a summer destination. But Antibes is a town with very much a life of its own. Restaurants, bars and shops are open and busy all year round, so there is still plenty going on even in the quieter months.


And why not ski from Antibes? The pistes of the French Alps (forming a backdrop to the view from the terrace) are only an hour away. So you can ski during the day and sit out at a cafe in the Old Town in the evening. For the 2002/3 winter, transport to and from Antibes to the slopes combined with a day ski pass cost just 30 euros.

Wonderful shopping

The famous daily provencal market is literally around the corner, with colours and smells that excite the senses even before you get your discoveries home! And Rue Sade, just at the end of the street, offers many lovely food shops to entice you.

Great bars and restaurants

If you prefer to eat and drink out, there could hardly be a wider choice so close at hand. Explore the neighbouring streets for all the bars and restaurants you could possibly want. Whether sampling the local provencal food or some other nationality, you are unlikely to be disappointed. The food is truly a delight.

Beautiful beaches

There are three sandy beaches within easy walking distance. The nearest, nestling under the old fortifications of the town, is just five minutes through the Old Town. Very sheltered, it is ideal for children and the water is surprisingly warm even in the cooler months.

The other beaches are a stroll along narrow, quaint streets with flower bedecked houses, past ancient monuments and along the ancient walls with stunning views of the coast and across the Mediterranean sea to the Alps as a distant backdrop.

Floral streets

The Old Town part of Antibes has narrow, cobbled streets with plants and flowers often climbing up the outsides of the houses around the faded shutters. So it is great to wander around and take in the atmosphere that has changed little in hundreds of years. Or just sit outside a bar and take in the easy-paced Mediterranean life.

Plenty to do on your doorstep...

Because Les Trois Palmes is so centrally located, there are several museums and other places to visit within a few minutes' stroll through the streets of the Old Town. The famous Picasso museum, for example, is just two minutes away on the other side of the provencal market.

Why Antibes?

or slightly further afield

With excellent bus and train services, you really don't need a car to go further afield. The exclusive Cap d'Antibes, a protected nature area, offers a welcome alternative to the hustle and bustle of the Cote d'Azur. There is a wild walk around the rocks, and gardens and museums to visit - but it is also fun just to wander the streets and take a peek at the large villas and mansions and their extensive gardens.

Just a ten-minute bus ride from Antibes is Juan les Pins, a seaside resort with a long sandy beach that sweeps around the bay and has plenty of style.

Explore the Cote d'Azur

Antibes could hardly be more centrally located, so is ideal as a base to explore the rest of the coast and inland. Again, a car is simply not necessary. Monaco, for example, is just half-an-hour away by train which takes a picturesque route by the sea.

Entertainment for all

For children, there is plenty to do for all ages. Several squares around the town have playgrounds, there are various attractions such as go-karts and merry-go-round, and amusement and water parks are within easy reach, including the world-famous Marineland.

For adults, there are excellent restaurants, live music bars, casinos and night clubs (the Les Trois Palmes support staff would be pleased to provide a baby-sitting service if required).
