Narrow and winding road leads to great hillside views
Very secure building with great views of the hills above Nice. Small upkeep details (e.g., door handles) will need attention over time. Air conditioning effectiveness was not a problem for us, in mild temperatures, but hard to say if it would be cool enough in hot weather. Gary was very communicative and helpful. Don't let the narrow/winding road up scare you; you'll become familiar with how to drive it.
Happy in Nice
We booked this apartment for 2 months in late winter. The apartment complex was situated above Nice with fantastic views all around, toward the sea and our apartment toward the mountains(with incredible sunsets reflecting off the rocky peaks and bluffs - incredible!) It was a peaceful location. We didn't have a car, but an easy 15 minute walk downhill through an olive grove to the city below was a great was to begin the day. It was another 15-20 minutes to "old town" ; we'd usually walk the promenade along the sea - stunning. Most mornings we'd stop at Armand's at Passy and Gambetta for an espresso, to check out a new pastry and to people watch.
If you don't feel like walking, the transportation system is superb, abundant and economical. There is a bus service outside the complex which will take you directly to the train station in a few minutes as well as connect to numerous buses to take you anywhere you want to go. We looked forward to the walk uphill at the end of the day - just be mindful of park closing time and if you decide to take the bus in the evening, know your bus schedule.
The apartment is comfortable and has everything you would need including an excellent WiFi connection. The complex and building is very secure requiring passcodes for entry. Gary has plenty of tourist info and suggestions as well as bus/train schedules. The pool was not open - but then it was winter after all.
We didn't meet Gary in person, but he was thorough and quick with all arrival information beforehand and then checked with us when we arrived to ensure there were no issues or questions. We felt he was always there if we needed him. He even checked halfway through our stay to ensure all was well.
Overall, the accommodation was great value and we had an excellent stay.
If you want a quiet and relaxing rental away from busy Nice at night, this is a wonderful location and we'd certainly recommend staying here.
This 1 bed apartment in the hills above Nice was perfect for us. It's a bit out of town so we hired a car to get around but trains and buses are easy to use, if you go down that route.
All mod cons available and beds are comfy.
We couldn't get the freeview box or DVD to work which would have been nice but not a huge problem for us.
1 thing I would say is that I would have liked to have curtains in the lounge, rather than having to close the shutters of an evening so people couldn't see in. Having said that, the shutters are brilliant for keeping out the morning sun.
All that said, I would recommend this apartment.
Clean and efficient unit big enough for 4 people. Quick owner's response. Great location for a middle of a summer stay away from the maddening crowds of Nice. It is right next to the less-known park full of ancient olive trees. The oldest is about 1000 years old. Swimming pool is a great bonus and is open all the time. Beware of bus schedule to ensure return to the condo in the evening. Overall: great stay and would definitely recommend to anyone.
Great condo in Nice!
Stayed in this condo for 3 days during our recent trip to France and Italy earlier this month. We really enjoyed it! The unit is located on the second floor of a multi-building complex on the hills outside of Nice and is very modern and clean. Our 2 daughters slept on the hide-a-bed, which they found very comfortable. Had a problem getting the air conditioning started when we arrived, and the owner, Gary, was very responsive and called me right away with instructions on how to resolve the issue, which worked. The apartment is well-maintained. It's in a safe area, and very secure thanks to the several levels of security which are in-place (front gate and building codes, etc.). The pool was very clean and had a great view of the Nice waterfront and airport. We used public transportation when in the area, which we found very convenient. Buses ran on-time according to a fixed schedule. The unit is a 20 minute walk to the nearest grocery store, bakery, butcher, which were all very good. The walk between the unit and these amenities is through a park. It's a steep climb on the return but if reasonably in shape you should be fine. A recommended place to stay in Nice.
Outstanding hidden gem in Nice
The apartment is fantastic and caters for your every need. The bed is one of the most comfortable one I have slept in whilst away, and the kitchen is fully equipped.
The town is within easy reach by going through the nearby park.
All in all a great apartment which we are booking again for next year.
Located just outside the center in the quiet St Phillipe area of Nice. The apartment has a pool with stunning sea and city views. It is located next to a newly opened public park which is popular with locals and tourists.
