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
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.
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.

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.
| Rue Guillaumont is quiet, making Les
Trois Palmes a peaceful haven to come home
to, even in summer
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.
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
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.
