My partner and I have just returned from our 2nd visit to Antibes and the Hotel La Jabotte. This visit was even better than the first. The sun shone everyday whilst we ate our breakfast on our own little terrace. Yves and Claude and Tommy their dog made us feel very welcome. Breakfast is set up every morning outside the rooms in the courtyard, fresh croissants, various French bread slices, cake, cheese, homemade jam, yoghurt, very strong and delicious french coffee - what more could you ask for. They also cater for people with allergies, soya milk, wheat free bread etc. After a morning interaction with their other guests we are all left to our own devices. At the bottom of the lane is one of the loveliest sandy beaches in Antibes so not far to walk for a sunbathe. Turn left and there is a 15 - 20 mins stroll by the sea to the old town with it's brasseries, boutiques and cobbled streets. Everywhere you look is a photo opportunity, glittering blue sea, many smart large private boats bobbing on the water, idyllic! Always ensure to get back to the hotel for a spruce up before the evening, as at 6pm Yves holds a cocktail hour on the terrace once again. Each evening is a different cocktail, or rose wine or beer with tasty nibbles. We only missed one night during our 4 day visit and that was because we were in Monaco for the Grand prix. I can't recommend this small hotel more highly for the level of personal service from Yves & Claude. One evening we had a reservation at Hotel du Cap on the other side of the peninsula and we couldn't get a taxi - Yves kindly drove us. The rooms are all individually decorated in Yves quirky style and the simplicity adds to the charm. When booking this hotel you are booking a personal experience. It should be remembered that this is a beach resort hotel and therefore no mod cons are available - which is exactly why I like it. No tv, no swish elevators, no huge hotel lobbies etc. Each room on the ground floor has a terrace area, there are beach chairs and umbrellas for all guests to use. At Hotel La Jabotte you are spending a few days in a guest house environment, plenty of privacy and peace and quiet. We will be back for our third visit very soon!
