Charming apartment, really felt like home..
We stayed in this apartment for 7 nights, and straight away felt like a home! This was important for us as we were traveling with our two young children.
The PDF guide we received prior to arrival was so helpful and gave us clear directions for getting to the apartment as well as how to use the facilities in the accommodation, making life much easier!
We arrived very late, but reaching the apartment was straight forward. The apartment was clean and looked as though it is well cared for and there was everything we required to make our own meals (mainly breakfast). The only criticism I have is that the towels, shower curtain and toilet brush should be replaced more often. These are relatively inexpensive items and I would have felt more comfortable if these items were newer.
The decor was lovely, we enjoyed the art on the walls and it created interesting talking points with our children and fit the feel of the artistic old town.
The apartment is very well placed, we enjoyed the restaurants and shops that were located near the apartment. Despite the location being so close to everything the apartment was very quiet even with the windows wide open. We also liked how short the walk was to Promenade des Arts for bus links to the sea front (although the walk is 25mins), the port and surrounding areas.
We were able to do so much in Nice but know there is much more left to see, especially in the old town. So we will definitely go back to Nice and we would absolutely love to stay in this apartment again!
The issues mentioned have been put right by our housekeeper
The comfortably homey apartment in a perfect location in old town Nice was the best.
In old town where you can walk anywhere...or easily catch buses or trams to go to the museums, this was a great apartment. It was delightful to walk the narrow streets and enjoy many cafes nearby. The apartment felt like a place you could live! The art on the walls was lovely and all the construction was high quality. We would have loved to have stayed longer and may some day.
Cosy apartement in Old Town
The apartement is in very good position in Old Town: very safe and quiet street, location in 5th floor with balcony. Apartement is good equipped, cosy and clean. Enough for 4 people for short stay. Chateau and park only for little walk. Same to the sea. Owner is very helpful. Thank you, Richard.
Excellent flat in Nice old town
This is a holiday home, well-appointed in every respect but not prissy like some of the professional rental agencies. Very quiet, light, and sunny southerly aspect, and nice balcony, which always helps in what can otherwise be a claustrophobic area if you crave open spaces! The lift (there aren't many in Nice old town) is indeed helpful if you can't do many stairs. The location is up a 'stepped street' (easier slopes from the north). Good access arrangements and excellent briefing notes from owners who know their Nice! (The restaurant suggestions are spot on).
This was our second visit to this apartment in the Old Town and it lived up to expectation once more
The apartment is ideally situated in the Old Town, so a few minutes from the beach, and on the street to the Castle.
We swam every morning at 8 o'clock , followed by breakfast on the terrace each morning before setting of to explore the Town.
Fish and mussels bought at the fish market which closes at Midday at the sound of the cannon fire, and fruit and veg from the lovely market in the square.
Walks to the port to see its fine Yachts and watch the ferry unload and load its passengers to Corsica.
An early morning bus ride,( No. 100 to Menton,) along the beautiful coastline passing the little bays and through Monaco and Monte Carlo.
Having just read Giles Waterfield's novel, The Long Afternoon, about an English family who lived in Menton this visit was a must.
Visit to various Museum...Chagall, Beau Artes, and Matisse, all very good and in such beautiful buildings..
Nice has a lot to offer its visitors, and the French were very helpful to us too.
This property is highly recommended and provides all you need for a homely stay. Thank you Richard for letting us stay once more.
Very nice unit close to everything you want to do
Very nice apartment and it's close to dozens of great restaurants. If you want to cook in the farmers market with great vegetables, seafood, cheeses and sausages etc. It's only a short walk away. Also it's a very private unit. Thanks for letting us stay there
Three minutes on foot to the beach. It is a shingle beach with numerous facilities for sunshades, loungers, refreshments and watersports in the summer and stretches the full length of the Promenade des Anglais. Other smaller and sandy beaches at Villefranche, Bealieu and Cap Ferrat are easily accessible by bus (bus station ten minutes walk).
Nice Cote d'Azur 5km with shuttle bus to within ten minutes walk from the apartment. A car is not necessary.
The apartment is located in the centre of the Old Town of Nice and is surrounded by shops, cafes, restaurants with easy access to art galleries and museums. Transport by bus or train to Antibes, Cannes, Monaco, Menton and Italy is excellent.
There are convenience stores all around the Old Town with a Monoprix supermarket about ten minutes walk away, but most things can be bought locally in the small shops, the fruit/vegetable in the Cours Saleya (three minutes walk), the fish market in Place St Francois (three minutes walk) or local butchers, wine merchants etc. Restaurants are innumerable.
