Porte de L'Orme Reviews

 

Porte de L'orme is a favourite

This year is our fifth stay in Tom and Paul's apartments and, as always, the properties are 5-star with personal welcome and plenty of choice to cater from 2 to 10 folk.

All modern facilities are integrally placed in characterful and elegant properties that certainly live up to all the promotional material. Port de L'Orme is a particular favourite of ours as it is so close to all the beaches, marina, markets and a stroll to the station should you wish to explore the Cote d'Azure Antibes is a magnet and once visited, you will want to keep returning.

We highly recommend the service offered by Paul, Tom and the team as beautiful well appointed apartments in stunning surroundings is the anchor to a memorable and relaxing holiday.

Fantastic stay, great location

Great location in Old Antibes, steps from the beach and the local market. We were greeted by Suzanne who took us through the well-appointed, spotless apartment when we arrived.

The apartment was so cozy, yet totally updated with all the modern amenities including a washer/dryer combo that we used (A rare find in Europe!) during our stay.

Tom and Paul left a wonderfully informative letter with all the info one would need as well as a nice welcome basket of goodies. The bed was very comfortable, plenty of storage with baskets for all your little items, a nice touch.

The bathroom had nice plush towels and high end soaps, shampoo and conditioner. The kitchen was well appointed with everything one could need, even a sewing kit! We appreciated all of the thoughtful touches and the attention to detail. Nothing was missed!

Thank you for a wonderful stay, our favorite stop off on our journey in this very special town!

Elegant Simplicity in old Antibes!

Wow! This is how to live like a local in the heart of the old town just meters away from the sea and from the local outdoor market and a short stroll to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay at "Porte de l'Orme".

The location is incredible and the apartment itself has been renovated with a fresh and elegant simplicity which preserves much of the local character and the charm of the original house. The kitchen is large and well equipped to do some serious cooking - perhaps of some of the fantastic fish being sold down the road!

Top marks for style and for being a nice and clean apartment. Very friendly and helpful welcome and a great little welcome tray of goodies in the kitchen and very nice soaps etc in the bathroom. Would definitely recommend this highly!

Fabulous location to call "home" in Antibes

We had a great 10 days at Porte de L'Orme. It was the perfect spot to use as a base for our vacation. The apartment has a fabulous location within the old ramparts of Antibes: literally only steps from the Mediterranean, the Musée Picasso, and the Marché Provençal on a small, quaint, cobblestone street for pedestrians.

The apartment is perfect for 2 people (although there is a small second bedroom). We were greeted by Suzanne who gave us useful information and details about the apartment.

We had a car during our vacation, although you can easily see the area without a car. We parked in the brand new city parking garage--Pré-aux Pecheurs at the Port Vauban harbor. It was the most well-designed parking garage we have ever seen...very unlike most small French garages.

It was wonderful to be able to go out each morning and get fresh croissants to go along with the coffee we made in the apartment's Nespresso machine. While there are many good restaurants nearby, which we enjoyed, we also liked eating "in."

This apartment was everything it was advertised to be. Neat, clean, and nicely-furnished. We highly recommend Porte de L'Orme if you are looking for a "home" in Antibes.

Fabulous Vacation Rental

We loved our stay at this property in Antibes. The owners are obviously travelers themselves because they have thought of everything it takes to make the weary traveler comfortable (crisp white sheets, coffee maker, blow dryer, house well stocked, etc), The apartment is clean and charming and the location is superb. I almost hate to say how wonderful it is because it may not be available next time I come to Antibes. Staying in such a well appointed and well location made Antibes our favourite city on the French Riviera. We will be back!

Comfort, style, and location

We stayed at Paul and Tom’s beautiful Porte de L’Orme vacation rental for two weeks in March. We completely agree with all the previous positive reviews of what and why an amazing place this is.

Everything is perfect and to a very high standard - the apartment itself with its beautiful furnishings, high-end kitchen and bath amenities, the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in, and the location (one-half block to the Med – including a glimpse of the Sea, one-half block to the Picasso Museum, one-half block to the daily fruit and vegetable market, a short stroll to everything in the old town.)

We couldn’t have been more pleased. Paul and Tom have several vacation rentals in Antibes. All have been created with their guests’ comfort in mind. The reservation process is easy and thorough. We do not hesitate to recommend Porte de L’Orme or any of their properties if you are seeking a memorable place to stay in wonderful Antibes.

A lovely and memorable stay!

We had the most amazing time on our visit and week stay in Antibes and at apartment Porte de L'Orme. The apartment was beautifully decorated with all the amenities one could want or need. The location was perfect right in the heart of the old town with the Ocean and views just steps away and The outside market filled with every goodie imagined almost right outside our front door.

We also found many marvelous culinary restaurants, bistros and cafes one could ever want or ask for to dazzle all our senses all within a short hop, skip and jump some a little farther when in the mood for a midnight stroll. The owners were more then accommodating with information on Antibes and always kept us updated. Just a wonderful renting experience and mind blowing location!

We left very relaxed and sad we couldn't extend our vacation another week. There is always next time. We would and have recommended this apartment to and for anyone looking for an escape from the normal day to day grind. Warning be prepared not to be disappointed, it was a lovely stay. Thanks Antibes and Thank you Porte de L'Orme!

A Wonderful Place to Stay in Charming Antibes!

We had a great 10 days at Porte de L'Orme. It was the perfect spot to use as a base for our vacation. The apartment has a fabulous location within the old ramparts of Antibes: literally only steps from the Mediterranean, the Musée Picasso, and the Marché Provençal on a small, quaint,cobblestone street for pedestrians. Couldn't be better!

The apartment is perfect for 2 people (although there is a small second bedroom). We were greeted by Suzanne who gave us useful information and details about the apartment. We appreciated and enjoyed the treats in the welcome basket.

We had a car during our vacation, although you can easily see the area without a car. We parked in the brand new city parking garage--Pré-aux Pecheurs at the Port Vauban harbor. It was the most well-designed parking garage we have ever seen...very unlike most small French garages. Sorry to rave about a parking garage, but this one was exceptional.

It was wonderful to be able to go out each morning and get fresh croissants to go along with the coffee we made in the apartment's Nespresso machine. While there are many good restaurants nearby, which we enjoyed, we also liked eating "in."

We visited in November and the weather was (mostly) beautiful, but cool. We can only imagine what the warmer months must be like. The market was not at its best and some of the businesses were closed. During the warmer months it would be nice to have some outdoor space or a balcony, which this apartment does not have. (Just something to keep in mind.)

This apartment was everything it was advertised to be. Neat, clean, and nicely-furnished. Merci Paul and Tom for making our booking easy and professional. We highly recommend Porte de L'Orme if you are looking for a "home" in Antibes.
