Arriving in Antibes 1st Apr - Can't find accommodation! Help! :)

 Hey girls and boys! 

I'm another newbie to the industry, coming from Melbourne, Australia arriving at the Antibes on the 1st of April. I'm so excited to begin this journey, however getting a little nervous as it seems that most crew houses are either full or overpriced at this time of the year! :-/ 

So finding people in the same boat as I to look for shared accommodation (unit/flat) may be the way to go!!! 

If you arriving at a similar time, or are already there and have a spare bed OR can just offer some advice, I would LOVE to hear from you!! (plus wouldn't hurt to make a friend or two before I get there)  

You can also email me if interested!!

 hey how you going, I started off in antibes last year, try 'resideal' or appart city for accommodation. otherwise air b'n'b for a holiday appt. you can expect to be forking out between 250-1000 euro a week depending on appt and number of people. I'm in Melbourne and will be heading back to Antibes around the 10 April. my name is Simon- 0434847877. give us call if you want some more info?

Hey Simon, thanks for the info! I'll be hitting you up tomorrow to rack your brains for sure!  

I've just booked to stay at Antares Hostel in Nice which is apparently right across from the station and am on the waiting list for the crew houses. 

Tess & Graham, keep in touch with me prior to arrival - I can keep you guys posted if I happen to find something whilst there or even prior!

Hey Honey! I'm in the same boat!

I'm heading over to antibes for the first time too!. I arrive on the 2nd April coming from Sydney I've just booked a room right in the centre of town (3 min walk to the port and agencies). I'm interested in sharing some accom as everything left at the moment is pretty expensive. 

The room I have booked has 2 beds, bathroom, kitchen, if your interested? 

Or I'd be keen to find something else to share? 

Have u had much luck?

I'm in Antibes at the moment got a place through airbnb for a week but having trouble finding somewhere else and check out on Sat. Crew houses seem to be full and anything else on airbnb or equivalent would blow through my budget. If anyone knows of anything going much appreciated if you could let me know.
