Designer Belle Epoque retreat near Plage de la Salis
Escape to classic French Riviera charm—with a contemporary twist—at La Calado. Pretty and traditional on the outside, chic and modern on the inside, this Antibes vacation rental is a wonderfully stylish retreat. At five bedrooms and a short distance from downtown, it’s the perfect size for reconnecting with family and the perfect spot for exploring the area with friends.
Private gardens filled with cypress and olive trees, lavender and rosemary bring a little piece of the French countryside to the villa’s quiet neighborhood just minutes from Antibes. Savor the scents and sunshine from terraces with a heated pool and lounging and dining areas. In the evenings, flip on the Apple TV, surround-sound system and Wi-Fi, or treat yourself to a session in the hammam or a glass from the wine cellar.
While the original villa is a Belle Epoque gem, this luxury property has been lovingly restored to a bright, modern finish. Parquet floors, pale wood accents and white walls link the living room and dining room, and doors lead into a fully equipped kitchen with a stunning waterfall marble breakfast bar.
Each of the five bedrooms at La Calado has a king bed and en-suite bathroom, as well as the same considered style as the main living areas. Details such as exposed ceiling beams and cozy window seats lend charm, while in the bathrooms, patterned tile has spa-worthy appeal.
Spend your holiday ensconced in the villa or sightseeing around the Riviera. It’s a short drive from the residence to shopping, dining and ancient fortifications in the old town area of Antibes, and to popular, sandy Salis Beach. Relive your honeymoon over a drink at the exclusive Hotel du Cap-Eden Rock or make the short drive to Cannes for a stroll along the famous Croisette.
