Enjoy the sea and the French village life—right outside your door.

Ideally located on a quiet cobblestone street and steps away from beaches, shops, and markets, this “Porte” is your doorway to exceptional scenic beauty and the richness of the Provençal lifestyle. Plus, enjoy views of the Mediterranean from the living room!

Feel refreshed and renewed after a stay at Porte de L’Orme, a bright two-bedroom, one-bathroom pied-à-terre situated in the heart of Old Antibes, by the ramparts of the ancient Roman wall.

Combining historic charm with an elegant design aesthetic and all the modern conveniences, this apartment is perfect for experiencing the best of life in a charming French village as well as the legendary beaches and invigorating sunshine of the Côte d’Azur. Decadent croissants at the neighborhood bakery, farm-fresh produce at the Marché Provençal, and your favorite sandy spot by the sea…all within easy walking distance!

Porte de L'orme property details

A showcase of refined elegance and thoughtful touches that feel luxurious yet cozy, Porte de L’Orme was lovingly restored and renovated with the holiday travelers’ every need in mind.

In keeping with the character of the quaint cobble-stone street and the ancient walls extending back to Roman antiquity, the owners worked with local craftsmen to use traditional materials of wood and tile throughout the property. The result is an apartment that is both authentic to the French countryside and comfortable for the most discriminating guests.

Accommodating up to three guests, Porte de L’Orme features a layout and amenities that prioritize comfort and convenience. The two bedrooms can be configured to one king bed or two twin beds; either way, guests can indulge in truly restful sleep, on delightful mattresses with clean, crisp, high-thread-count linens.

Air-conditioning keeps the apartment cool on the hottest summer days when guests might choose to kick back, relax, and enjoy a movie on the flat-screen LED TV, equipped with Netflix, Apple TV, and channels in French, English, and more.

Given a fully equipped kitchen, complete with chef-quality oven and stove, dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso machine (and all the cookware, dishware, and stemware you need), you will be glad that the fruits, vegetables, meats, and spices of the Provençal farmer’s market are just steps away from your door!

Explore a whole universe of regional specialties and delicacies: freshly caught seafood, olives, goat cheese, Cavaillon melons, wines, and so much more. What could be better than sipping a rosé or apéritif, while preparing a gourmet meal with ingredients from the local land and sea?

With this apartment’s pedestrian-friendly location (and the Antibes train station just ten minutes away), no car is needed to enjoy a full and wonderful holiday in the French Riviera. However, guests may choose to park their vehicle at a safe and spacious parking garage nearby.

The apartment comes generously appointed with L’Occitane bathroom products and all the necessities of home: free high-speed Wi-Fi, washing machine and dryer, iron and ironing board, and hair dryer. A baby cot and high chair are also available.

Tempted by the alluring sight of the azure-blue waters, from the living room window? Grab your beach bag and beach towels (provided with the apartment), and head to the warm sands of Plage de la Gravette, a five-minute walk away. This small beach, sheltered by a breakwater, is perfect for families with small children.

Or, immerse yourself in the culture of an old French town—cafes, boutiques, specialty shops, restaurants, bistros, bars, and more are all just outside your door! And don’t miss the world-famous Picasso Museum, also a five-minute walk from Porte de L’Orme.
