Guestbook comments from the owner

Patricia and Joe made the booking and check-in process very easy. Their host Grace was able to arrange a private transfer from the airport as we had a late flight which was much appreciated especially with small children. We had a warm welcome and basic supplies and some treats were left for us on arrival. The apartment was lovely on the first floor of an art deco building. It was well decorated in a traditional French style. Both double bedrooms had adequate storage space and had air-conditioning units in each one. The kitchen was well appointed although we only really prepared breakfast here. The shower was powerful and there was an abundance of hot water and loads of towels which was a major plus. There was also a cupboard full of beach gear which came in very handy. The apartment was located very close to the train station making day trips easy. Antibes is recommended! Main shopping street, beach, tram, 3 bars and restaurants can all be accessed on foot from the apartment. Bakery, fruit and veg shop and grocery store are on your doorstep also. We had a lovely stay at Joe and Patricia's apartment and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. A wonderful stay in Nice, thank you.

Car: not necessary

The (pebbled) beach is a 10-15 minute walk depending on whether you get attracted by the many provencal shops en route. If you prefer, you can pay to use one of the private, sandy breaches along the Promenade.

Alternatively, Antibes, Villefranche sur Mer, Juan les Pins or Cannes all have sandy beaches and are easily accessible by train.

Getting around Nice is easier than ever - the tram system is excellent as is the Vélo Blue (bicycle rental system).

You really don't need a car here as you are so centrally placed in Nice and the SNCF central station is less than a 5 minute walk away. The train line has excellent train links to Italy, Monaco, Eze, Menton, Antibes, Cannes etc.

If you are driving the auto-routes are excellent.

There is so much to see and do you will need several trips to do it all. You can get away into the mountains for skiing or walks, the promenade and beaches, the art galleries of St Paul de Vence, Villefranche, Cannes Film Festival, Monaco Grand Prix - it's all just a short trip away.

For the workaholic, WiFi is available in the apartment!

Local restaurants, a little bar, a mouthwatering greengrocers and several tasty boulangeries are all on your doorstep. Banks, a range of shops - everything you could possibly need are within a 10 minute walk.

Notes:
Having tested the property ourselves with our own children, we welcome yours. Although the lift in the building is suitable for a buggy, it may be a little narrow for a wheelchair. For your convenience, a washing machine, indoor clothes airer, iron, ironing board, beach mats and parasols are all provided. We only believe in charging for the time you stay and so linen, towels, and heating (in winter) are all included. Upon arrival, the property will be clean with fresh bedlinen and towels. Although we do not expect guests to clean before departure, we ask that the apartment is left in an acceptable state. The area..... Famous for lovely beaches right along the coast - Nice, Villefranche sur Mer, Beaulieu sur Mer, Eze.... - the Cote d'Azur has loads more to offer. The rich history of the region means the city has a very distinct culture. A great wealth of fine architecture, a diverse cultural life, a myriad of museums and art galleries means there is something for everyone.

Excellent location, very clean apartment with super facilities. Arrangements for keys well managed.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in Nice. Apartment is handy for the station literally a five minute walk away. Took train to Monaco and Antibes, both worth a visit. Struck by the cleanliness of the apartment, very impressive.

A pretty place in a good location!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this place in Nice. We had a group of five and we were snug but comfortable. The apt is cool with moulding and hardwood floors and has a separate WC for those special moments. The AC worked well in the bedroom but did not cool the entire apt. The breeze from the sea was enough to cut the 85 degree Heat. It is a comfortable place and a good location to explore a great town. Good communication from the owners on some qquestions we had as well.

Lovely well cared for apartment, great location!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my husband and 3 adult daughters - a rare treat as they're all flying the nest! Convenient location with plenty of shops close by and a 10 to 15 min walk to the promenade. Well equipped kitchen, bed linen and towels supplied. Good communication with owners and agency staff so no hassle with collecting keys etc. Would definitely recommend!

very nice apartment, very well located

  • 5 of 5

A very pritty, very clean and very well equipped apartment, very well located, very close to the station and around short and very comfortable 10 minutes of walking to the beach and the city center. Very kind owners and local key holders with perfect communication. Although we (my mother, my sister and my teenage daughter), arrived late at night they were very heartly welcome and could enjoy a pre-prepared breakfast next morning. Thank you very much for that! The girls made trips to the surroundings by train almost every day, which is very convenient due to station-closeness. Nice was very hot this June and the airconditioning did a very good job, still temperatures are elevated, also in the room, as you would need to expect at this time of the year. Due to its so very good location, the apartment is situated at a vivid street crossing, which guarantees also very good logistics and extremely short and convenient paths to the next bakery and fruit store, and brings along on the other hand at times maybe a bit more noise in the night, when the city activates e.g the garbage disposal. Overall a definitely very recommendable apartment and thank you , Joe and Patricia, also for your so fast, friendly and supportive communication!

Owner's Response: Alexandra, thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We are delighted that your family enjoyed their stay, especially your mother - we hope she had a lovely 75th birthday. Your comments on the location of the apartment and your experience of dealing with us will be very helpful for future guests. You are correct - temperatures in Nice were very high in June this year and we're glad to hear that the air conditioning was effective. You are all more than welcome to return any time. Thanks again and best wishes, Joe and Patricia

Decent place

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay however, the location is not in a very quiet area. The air conditioner did not work during a heat wave that occurred during our stay. We tried to keep the windows open for a breeze at night but with the combo of noise and air pollution from the motorcycles and cars constantly going by, even at 2-3 am, we did not experience restful nights. The apartment is located quite close to the train station. which was very nice for day trips to explore the French Riviera but probably explains the traffic in the area. The place was clean and furnished well.

Owner's Response: Sooji, thank you for taking to the time to write a review on our property. We are very pleased to hear that, overall, you enjoyed your stay and found the apartment to be clean and well equipped. However, we want to apologise for the impact the faulty air conditioning unit had on your experience. It was unfortunate that the unit began to malfunction just prior to your stay - which coincided with a heat wave!. We ordered a replacement immediately and it will be installed this week. Normally the combination of double glazed windows, functioning shutters and air conditioning ensures a good night's sleep. Again, sincere apologies. The situation has now been resolved. Joe & Patricia
