  • Beautiful apartment on edge of Nice old town

    "We stayed in this apartment for Christmas 2014 and couldn’t have been happier. First of all, it is extremely well located within Nice – at the edge of the ‘old town’, overlooking the Place Massena and an approximately 3-4 minute walk from the Promenade des Anglais and its beach. Everything around it is just lovely. Second, it’s a beautiful apartment, well furnished, well equipped and well taken care of. Unlike many rentals that may have spartan and/or Ikea furniture, this one is well decorated and really feels like a home. If you’re considering this apartment – don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it! Although we were there in winter, I would definitely rent it in summer as well. It has a lovely terrace overlooking the Place Massena that I think probably gets afternoon/evening sun in the summer time. We (two adults in two separate rooms and a dog) enjoyed the large kitchen with its farmhouse-sized table, separate dining room and ample living room. One bedroom has an en-suite bath and one is located off the hallway – both are nice, clean and well maintained. The small third bedroom is accessed through the second (non-master) bedroom but also has direct access to the terrace (which could be locked in the case of using it for a child). The owners were also lovely, very helpful and very easy to deal with. They responded quickly to inquiries, provided all necessary information and were just very nice people. No fuss, no drama and they clearly care about maintaining a nice property. The apartment has good wifi, an excellently equipped kitchen, a parking garage (public, with fees) very close, a lift and really anything you could need. It was very easy to get into and out of Nice to visit nearby towns (subject to rush hour traffic at times)."

  • Summary of Recent Reviews (guests send reviews to my professional management company in Paris)

    "Mr Brad Staubes - USA - June 2013 - I want to thank you ALL for another very pleasant stay on Ile Saint-Louis. We've stayed now in Saffron (2.5 years ago) and Black Orchid (last week) and had excellent experiences both times. THIS time, we asked your concierges for help and information almost daily, and really appreciate the cheerful help we got each time. We have recommended Guest Apartment Services to other friends who occasionally travel to Paris, and will certainly contact you ourselves next time we plan a trip to your beautiful city. Many thanks! Brad Staubes & Trond Valldal Mr & Mrs Kirscher - USA - October 2012 - Dear Guest Services Team, We have returned home to the U.S. but want to thank you for the fine experience we had at one of your apartments. SAFFRON was charming and very comfortable with many thoughtful touches that made us feel at home there. We also appreciated the car service to the airport. We hope to return to Paris and your apartment a few more times before we become too old to travel. In any case, we will tell our family members and friends about the wonderful services you offer so they can enjoy them as much as we did. With thanks, Sheila and John Kirscher Mr & Mrs Petrides - USA - June 2012 - Bonjour Liliane, Christophe and Philippe, We have arrived home safely with our holiday but a dream. Once again we wish to thank you as our apartment and your support and hospitality were the highlights of our stay. We cannot wait until we visit you and your beautiful city again for we will surely use your service. We hope the weather is becoming warmer for you, it is cold and wet here. With our very best regards, Ann and George Petrides Mrs Judith Arbuckle - USA - June 2011 - Cher Philippe et Christophe: My only complaint about my recent vacation in Paris is that it had to end! I am not happy to be back home and would have preferred to stay all summer long! The apartment "Saffron" was ideal!! The location is superb, the bed was cozy and comfortable, the living room/kitchen was perfect, the decor is lovely, the bathroom was very nice, the lighting/mirors was good for reading and dressing and make-up, and the storage space was ample. The fresh flowers continued to bloom and smell fragrant all week long! The instruction booklet was very useful. In short, it was perfect! Merci beaucoup! The local patisseries/boulangiers, charcuteries, wine/fromage, clothing stores, and restaurants were all great. Again, merci beaucoup. Judith Arbuckle"

French Riviera (Cote d'Azur) Travel Tips

The French Riviera is the Perfect Vacation Destination

The French Riviera, also known as the Côte d'Azur, has all the glitz and glamor you could ever hope for. It is rivaled by few places on earth which makes it one of the truly magical and inviting vacation destinations of all time. Situated on the French coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the Alps protect the area from the harsh inland winds while the sultry Mediterranean’s warm gentle breezes draw you in. This dreamland makes French Riviera villas the perfect escape from the daily grind of your real life. Once you stay here, you will never want to go home!

When to Book French Riviera Accommodations

The summer months on the French Riviera, particularly July and August, can be stifling hot but crowded as well. If you want to avoid throngs of tourists and other vacationers, the summer is not the best time to go. Furthermore, you will find that prices are higher during this peak season as well. June and September are the ideal months to plan on booking French Riviera vacation rentals simply because the weather is gorgeous and the prices are right. It is important to know the vacation habits of the locals before you plan your trip as well. From mid-July throughout August, almost all of France is on vacation, so that may pack the roads, rentals, and beaches. You will also want to watch out for May with all of its church holidays as many main attractions are closed.

French Riviera Helpful Travel Tips

As you plan your trip to the French Riviera, knowing how to get in and around is a key element of having a successful vacation. If you plan to fly in, the Nice Côte d'Azur Airport is probably your best bet as it sits between Antibes and Nice. There are frequent flights between major cities across the globe and Paris which is then only an hour flight to Nice. The train is also a possibility as Nice is a major crossroads for trains arriving from Paris, northern French cities, and Italy. The Côte d'Azur line is also pleasing to tourists as it affords many great sights along the way. Taking the bus or having a rental car allows you to penetrate deeper into the smaller villages and backcountry spots throughout the region. If you plan on visiting the lesser traveled paths, these may be your best bet. You will be able to get a bus schedule easily from any travel agent or from the bus depot itself. Be sure to rent your car from one of the main rail stops.

Talking the Talk

Because much of the region makes its living through some form of tourism or another, many people will have no problem speaking English, especially in the most popular tourist areas. You may also find that many of the waiters and managers speak English natively or fluently but it would not hurt to try your best at French. Service is always better when you try the native language.

Staying Safe

Staying safe on vacation is always a main concern and the French Riviera is no different. Though Monaco lodging is very safe, the rest of the region has a reputation that challenges personal safety. Petty crimes such as pickpocketing, car theft, and burglary are all too common. Just do your best to avoid being a victim by staying aware of your surroundings, locking the door to your French Riviera accommodations, and not flaunting your valuables.

Things to do and See

The French Riviera is famous for St. Tropez, Monaco and the Cannes Film Festival. But there are plenty of lesser known attractions for you to enjoy. Have you thought about visiting the perfumeries of Grasse, the glass-blowers of Biot, or the perched quaint villages of Eze and Gourdon? Stepping into these areas will make you feel as though you have stepped into a living Picasso painting. Filled with mountain scenery, beach views, and everything in between, the French Riviera allows for a chic, energetic, and unforgettable vacation every time you visit.
