About the property

Adorable bungalow with beautiful terraces and a pool in a perfect setting

Nestled in a green setting, our bungalow is very luminous due to its south-west exposure. It is located in a large property with trees, especially olive trees and Mediterranean plants; the house is located at the end of the propriety. Self-catering, single storey, and cannot be overlooked from the outside. Furnished with style, the antique furniture is functional for the pleasure and the comfort of our guests who can also enjoy the equipped kitchen. There are two large terraces, one is equipped for relaxation and idleness, the other for a barbecue evening to enjoy your holidays. At happy hour, you may prefer to stay by the pool and relax in the serenity of the place. There is nothing you have to worry about. There is parking on the property. In 10 minutes, you can reach the tram station (parking is free of charge all day long) and the A8 motorway toward Antibes, Cannes Saint-Tropez, Monaco, Montecarlo, and Menton on one side, and Italy on the other. If you do not have a car, you can take the bus 2 minutes away from the property. You must know that in summer, in the Riviera many entertainment activities are held.

About solange

We are nature lovers; this is why we have decided to live on the hill where we take care of the 40 olive trees that produce olive oil. We also love concerts, cinemas, theatres, museums, and our house lies in an ideal location because in 15 minutes, we can reach the city and its cultural places. We are also travellers. We love to discover, learn from other cultures, and meeting different people is our passion. To host and share is a real pleasure.

solange purchased this house in 1970

Why solange chose Nice

We chose to stay in the countryside, on one of the hills in Nice, far from the chaos of the city, but close enough to enjoy its services. We are 3 km away from the main roads to enjoy what Nice has to offer. It is a pleasure to live in this region. Quality of life, the weather, the brightness of the sky, the pebble and rocky beaches, museums, theatres, gardens and the Carnival, the flower fights, the jazz festival. You will never get bored and this is why we like Nice so much. Other advantages: in less than an hour, you will go from the picturesque villages to the mountain with is ski resorts.

What makes this house unique

Bungalow in the countryside on a 10,000-m² property. Quietness is assured. You will not hear the sound of cars (a private lane takes you to the property) and you don't have to worry about finding a parking space. There is a panoramic view of the hills and it is not overlooked by the neighbours. In 5 minutes, you can reach the bakery shop and a supermarket. If you do not wish to go by car, you can take the bus, which is 2 minutes away from the property.

Generally ok, but some facilities listed missing.

  • 3 of 5

Good overall but lacks Air conditioning despite being listed. Also lacks Hot Tub. This turned out to be a single jet in the unheated pool which was disappointing. Air conditioning was a much needed feature due to the heat in July. So much so we had to purchase a portable one to make the stay pleasant. Still awaiting deposit return. Good overall but beware of property shortcomings and misleading listing. Also no wifi despite also being listed. Bed is extremely uncomfortable, your better off on the sofa. That isn’t a sofa but a single bed. Property has a serious Ant problem, you’ll be sharing your breakfast with them. Have reported to homeaway.

Owner's Response: Par courtoisie je ne décrirais pas l'état du logement à votre départ. Pour la propreté, il suffit de se référer aux appréciations . Quant aux commodités manquantes, il suffisait de lire le descriptif conforme à la réalité. Dois-je préciser que ni taxe de séjour, ni surcout d'électricité de votre climatiseur n'ont été pris en compte?

Fantastic accommodation for 2 with pool

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for a couple to stay in a quiet location in one of Nice's 5 hills. If you want homeliness and a relaxing holiday with a great terrace space and a pool this is the one for you. The owners Solange and Jacques are very welcoming and friendly and they both speak a little English.

The property is compact but has everything you'd want from a self catering accommodation. Its very well equipped with everything you need within the kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom, terraces and pool.

We stayed here at the beginning of June and the weather was perfect. We used the pool everyday, towels and loungers provided. We used the electric Weber BBQ most evenings and were able to sit outside in the separate area next to the BBQ for our evening meals.

It is quite difficult to find the first time my tip is approach the accommodation from Nice via Route de Saint Pierre de Feric and the Ave des Oliviers. Once you've reached the end of the Ave des Olivers and turn right onto the Ave de Pessicart you then go past a School on your right As you drive down the road you will then see the white gate and trees and no 437.

We will definitely be returning soon. Thanks you so much Solange and Jacques.

Excellent séjour !!!

  • 5 of 5

La propriété est superbe et se trouve au calme, sans vis à vis. La résidence est très bien équipée, il ne manque rien. Le coin piscine est lui aussi impeccable et le contre courant vous permettra de nager en toute tranquillité. Et surtout, l'accueil de Solange et de Jacques, fantastique et chaleureux, que nous n'oublierons pas. L'endroit idéal pour se reposer et profiter du soleil au mieux !!! Continuez, c'est parfait !!!

Une location originale et pleine de charme.

  • 5 of 5

L'accueil de Solange et Jacques, toujours disponibles pour un conseil avisé ou pour une explication sur la vie locale, allié au charme de la petite maison, sa terrasse, sa piscine et son environnement, font de cette location sur les collines de Nice un havre de paix. On s'échappe facilement vers le haut pays niçois et l'on peut rejoindre le centre ville rapidement. Bref, tout pour plaire !
