Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

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.

Great apartment great position

  • 5 of 5

Richards apartment is in a great position close to many good restaurants, super markets, promenade, public transport, the train station being just a short walk away.

The apartment has everything you will need, great shower, kitchen with oven and washer which greatly helped when you just bring hand luggage. The bed was very comfortable. You will not be disappointed with this apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for these comments and we are humbled. As we only want you the guests to have a great stay with us and come back. We get many rerturn guests, with their new children and even there children coming back with thier own children, that makes it special for us. The hallways are being upgraded soon and the communcal areas are as well, so we are looking forward to that. The lift is really useful as well and the new addition combination oven is also a great asset. Warm regards Richard, Kim, Ruby and baby Zachary :) x

A great apartment in a good location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is located in a great part of Nice, near shops, transport and only one street away for the Promenade des Anglais. It is well cared for and decorated. Richard communicated well and Margarita was very friendly and helpful.

Great location one block from the beach

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I spent 5 nights here. It's a great location, close to restaurants and the beach. Written information from the owner included lots of tips on things to do while in the area. We arrived in Nice by train and were able to access the apartment via the tram and a 10-12 minute walk from the tram stop.

Fantastic hosts and lovely place in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is so close to everything. We drove my car and found if we parked in the side street we could easily unload, then park in the secure car parking nearby.

The apartment has everything, the microwave is a combo type thing that cooks both.

The shower was perfect and hot. Big enough for all.

The beds are comfy and the back up service in case of any issues or holiday ideas is fab!

We don't get much holiday time and we really value our time together as a family.

Thank you Richard and family for our lovely stay, we plan to come back in May next year.

Huge thanks Zak and co.

Flat with easy access to Nice town

  • 4 of 5

Great flat if arrive via plane or train but not so good for drivers of cars. Absolutely no parking in street or adjacent streets to unload. Absolutely no where to even pull up in front of the apartment.We took up Richards offer of arranging nearby parking but still made unloading difficult.

Second floor with small lift and consisting of hall, bathroom, kitchen/dining/sitting room and bedroom. Couch/sofa is sofa bed

Shopping at supermarkets within easy walk both east and west and both ways have one open all day on Sunday (Carrefour and Spar). Boulangerie opposite gave excellent service and supplies.

Flat comes with washing machine, microwave and hob, so if self catering avoid buying anything that needs a conventional oven.

Parking arranged via parkego- essentially rent someone else's space in private garage. Ok, but hidden cost is a mobile call to France every time you want to go in and out with car.

Bathroom - small shower cubicle (800x800 mm) particularly in view of the fact that the actual shower mechanism intrudes into space. Lots of hot water for two never ran out. Not much in the way of flat surfaces. Only one shelf and the edges of sink. Heating no problems and efficient (February).

TV mostly French, some Italien and about 6 English channels including BBC world service, English edition of France 24 hrs, English Arabic and 2 movie channels (tnt and paramount). Wifi excellent. Neighbours quiet, no disturbances at all. Some noise from streets at weekends if have windows open.

Many sights within walking distance(muse; muse massina, muse beaux arts, old town etc). Transport very good, if walk to Place Massina can buy 10 bus/tram tickets from tram machines with cash or credit card. Can also pay driver on bus (1.5).

All in all an excellent location for Nice except for the problems with unloading car. Also Richard uses PayPal to return security deposit so it will cost you £2.98 for the service.

Cozy, well-located Apt Bord de la Mer

  • 5 of 5

Pack your bags and head for the French Riviera. Located just a couple quick blocks from the Promenade, which runs across the Med Sea coast, from the Old Town and its daily fresh market, and from the lively town square with countless excellent eateries and shopping mall, this location can't be beat. I prepared and ate most meals at the well equipped pad. Check out the butcher (Marked "Rotisiere") two turns to the right across from Care4, a grocery shopping store with most everyday and touristy items (power converter, etc.). Nice is very safe, and I enjoyed late night strolls appreciating the lack of disorderly drunkenness often associated with violence. Nice is remarkably clean, with well placed recycle bins throughout the city as well as bike share, tram, buses, etc. The apt Bord de la Mer lives up to the charm of this wonderful community. Richard and family are exceptional hosts, answering my many questions as this was my first trip to France. The thorough English onboarding instructions were very appreciated, alongside light entertainment amenities like high-speed internet, TV/movies, and guide books in both French and English. My only caveat, which has nothing to do with the listing: Nice was much cooler than I thought. You will need at least light jacket until Summer.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for lovely review and tourist ideas. The mayor of Nice has done a great job investing in the city of Nice by the sea, loads to do, see, eat and drink! The internet that we have is very good and much better and faster than the UK's! The apartment is only a block off the sea-front and without all the noise. The weather in March is warmer than in the UK for the same time, that is why the Victorians used to holiday here in Nice in the Winter months. We hope to see you back soon. Kind Regards, Richard and Family.
