I spent 7 months living at Camping Douce, near Antibes - from 2nd December 2012 until 30th June 2013. I had come to the area for work at Sophia Antipolis.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I first arrived there.
But I really enjoyed my stay - so much so - that I extended my stay on SEVERAL occasions
and only left because my work at Sophia Antipolis had come to an end. And then - only after
a further 2 Months after the work had ended. I was in no hurry to go anywhere else - so I
extended my stay.
Even though I myself was a little unsure of my actual date of departure (and I changed it a
few times) - the Owners always made sure that I could stay there for as long as I wanted.
The Owners and Management are lovely and couldn't do enough for me. They even gave
me an Apartment (at no extra Cost) for the final weeks of my stay.
The price for the accommodation is reasonable and affordable - especially, when compared
with other camp sites or apartments in the area.
The whole camp site is spotless, nicely designed and spacious and the Owners invested a lot
in new roads within the camp site earlier during the year.
The Mobile Homes are fully equipped and maintained to a very high standard.
Some even have Air Conditioning. Also, there are a few apartments on the grounds.
Before renting again, each accommodation is thoroughly cleaned and checked that all
is in good repair and good working order for the next occupants.
Internet (via WiFi) is available too ; as is a lovely, clean swimming pool - a big favourite with
The Camp is within a few minutes walk from the Mediterranean sea with its breathtaking views.
It is very close to Antibes and it is possible to travel by Bus all around the area (Nice, Antibes, Cannes) for just one Euro per journey.
Shopping for food is cheap - but go to Carrefour, Intermarché, Monoprix for the best prices.
The hard work that the Owners put in certainly pays off to make this site great.
All in all a lovely site, clean and great surroundings, friendly Owners who take the time and
have a word for everybody and go the extra mile to make sure that your stay is as enjoyable
Everything about my experience there exceeded my expectations. I would recommend
Camping Douce to anyone and I can't praise it enough. I will definitely go back there again.
