Villa La Calado Reviews
Stunning & Elegant French Mansion
I celebrated my 50th birthday here. Tom and Paul were truly gracious in handling the reservation and we had excellent correspondence prior to arrival. We were greeted early in the day by their hostess Suzanne who took us through the workings of the home. They were kind enough to accommodate us earlier than the posted check in time.
This home is truly spectacular. The 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms are equally accommodating for all the guests. Cutlery and dishes are plentiful and carefully thought out. There is a dish for anything you can think of. Our group thoroughly enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen, There are multiple dishwashers and fridges which really are handy when entertaining with a group.
My friends and I had such a wonderful time. We didn't want it to end. I would recommend this villa and these hosts to anyone. It was my first VRBO experience and its was awesome!

Five-Star Luxury 5 minutes from beach
La Calado is a spectacular 5 bedroom villa that is convenient to both the beach and old town but feels a world away. Perched on a hill overlooking the city, this historic villa has been recently renovated and delivers on the perfect combination of rustic local charm and modern comfort. The owners are incredibly friendly and are meticulous with the details. Gentle rain showers, wood flooring that is soft on the feet, a gorgeous swimming pool, and so many comfortable places to lounge / sit that our biggest regret was that we didn't get to try them all. Incredibly affordable for the level of comfort. This feels more like a Four Seasons or Aman than a vacation rental and we will definitely be back.

The Jewel of Antibes
This historic villa has been tastefully restored to his former grandeur by its owners : it is well thought and beautifully furnished in a classic and modern Mediterranean style. The beddings and linens are high quality. All the amenities of the house: huge kitchen, beautiful on suite bathrooms in each bedrooms, barbeque and outdoor kitchen, gorgeous salt water swimming pool with an outdoor shower. It was even better than staying in a 5 stars hotel. This property exceeded our expectations.

The villa is simply spectacular. You wake up and look out over the old town toward the Alps and the sea. Beautifully restored and modernized. Our reaction when arriving was "we'll never leave this villa" and while we eventually did (the old town of Antibes is just a short walk) we can imagine returning to this villa and spending the entire time on the property. The heated swimming pool is just one of the many aspects of the place that lures you to stay at home. Wonderful for large groups as the house is so large with a variety of bedrooms and living rooms you can always find a quiet place or a place large enough for all your friends and family. We were there in May when the weather grew more gorgeous each day, but even if there had been a rainy day, the villa would have been a wonderful place to curl up and enjoy cooking meals in the huge kitchen, watching Apple TV, or just watching the weather over the town.
Wonderful experience and we will most definitely return.

Exquisite Villa for the perfect vacation
Our family of ten spent nine wonderful days at La Calado in Antibes. Housing ten people is no easy feat but La Calado did it with ease and style. Each couple had their own beautiful bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. We had large living spaces to gather as an entire group, but also intimate areas for those who wanted time alone. The design aesthetic of the home is exquisite and the attention to detail is amazing. With the recommendations of our hosts, Tom and Paul, we discovered the wonderful restaurants of Antibes but, by far, our favorite dinners were held seated around the outside dining areas at La Calado. The outdoor kitchen was fabulous and made our afternoons by the pool complete.
We rented a car and used it mainly to get to and from the airport. We were able to walk most places or use rented scooters. We took the train to Monaco, but always had La Calado to return to. It was an incredible home base to have while we explored the French Riviera.
