Review #7229102 "Fantastic location and apartment"



Fantastic location and apartment just as described. Excellent directions from the airport and so easy to find. No car needed as public transport by bus or train is very reasonable. Great winter sun location and the Christmas market was excellent.

Fifth time and counting. Will be returning

  • 5 of 5

I have visited richards apartment 5 times now over the last 10 years. I just love it. It gives us the right mix of easy as well as useful. Easy in that you are 15 minutes from the airport by bus, 2 minutes stroll to Sporting Plage, and there is a cafe by the front door. Useful in that you can have so many holidays in one place. I have had days where i never needed to range more than 200 yards from base whilst having a beach, cafes, bars, restaurants and supermarkets within the radius. This was especially useful if one of you is on crutches. I have also had many day travelling by train and bus around the cote d'azur all from the apartment.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, We always welcome return guests, and always look at ways of improving and making your stay even better. Yes we are so close to everything here in Nice, the beach, shops, Cafes, Museums, arts and the sea! So much to experience. The lift is great if one of you is on crutches, but the apartment is only on the second floor. It helps with the luggage as well. See you again soon, as you have rebooked with us. Warm Regards, Richard and Family

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Thank you for your great review! The apartment is self contained and even has a washing machine and air conditioning in the apartment. We are also very easy to find just off the sea front and beach. The building is a traditional Niscoise building dating back to the 1890's, so has lots of character and is very French. We hope to see you very soon and it was a pleasure to have you as guests. We would not hesitate to recommend you as guests to other owners in the future. Warm Regards, Richard and Family.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment with a fab bakery across the road! We've eaten so much freshly baked French stick and many croissants that our belts need loosening! Beach is literally 1/2 minutes away. Both my husband and daughter enjoyed our morning strolls along the way, really appreciating the aqua sea. Castle Hill is a must, beautiful views across Nice. In the The Old Town we found the most amazing Ice Cream parlour, lots of bistros and architecture.

The apartment was suitable, very clean and well laid out. The kitchen looked new? We liked the yellow / grey colour scheme. It was bright and airy and we very much enjoyed our stay. Good communication with owner and met by a lovely French lady. Bottle of wine in fridge was a nice touch.

Thank you

Owner's Response: Dear guests, Thank you for this lovely review. Yes the apartment is blessed with been central to everything including all French culture and being near the sea. The lift is a real asset for the apartment and is great for people with mobility issues if they wish to use the lift, but the apartment is only on a short flight of stairs to the second floor. The beds are very comfortable as well. The building is also been redecorated which is also a real plus for the building. We look forward to you staying with us again very soon. Richard and family

Just image yourself sipping a cold glass of Rose wine or drinking a fresh ground French Cafe, relaxing and watching the world go by? In this perfect cosmopolitan near beach front location. This much sort after fantastic central location, near a local french bakery on Nice's famous first old road, the Rue de France, situated in the 'Golden Quarter' (Carre D'or) in Nice. Literally a leisurely 1 minute walk to the sea front & beach. Situated on a quiet side street, but close to all the best restaurants, cafe culture, street entertainers, designer shopping boutiques (like Chanel, Armani, Karen Millen, and many more), famous museums (Matisse etc) and transport links. Le Carré d'Or, or 'Gold district' is the elegant section of the pedestrian zone of central Nice, which begins at the Promenade des Anglais and extends to the tree-lined Boulevard Victor Hugo. Look for street names like Paradis, Alfonse Karr or Longchamp in order to identify this chic quarter of Nice.The 'Gold District' is the Mayfair or Park Avenue of Nice,on the gorgeous French Riviera Coast.

Other Activities: Shopping, Festivals, Art Galleries, Architecture, Canoeing, Wildlife (inc outside Wolf Sanctuary watching), Photography, Restaurants and night-life.

Golf: See Owners Website for excellent Golf Courses nearby on the French Riviera!

Ski: Winter skiing & Snow boarding is easy; Isola 2000 is a large modern resort, very popular, with good lifts and well maintained runs for all abilities. It is 2,000 metres high and usually has good snow from before Xmas to March. It's about 1hr 30 minutes drive from Nice, or there is a ski-bus service from central Nice (10 minute walk from our apartment). Auron, Valberg, Greolieres, and a number of smaller resorts are lower altitude and hence have snow for a shorter time, they are about the same driving time from Nice. Limone in Italy is prettier and about the same size, it is about a 2 hour drive.
