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.

Beautiful apartment in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Nice, it is a beautiful city with so much to see and do and the apartment was perfect! It sits on the corner of a cross road, with a patisserie, pharmacie and greengrocers right on the doorstep. If you step out of the apartment and head in one direction your at the sea in minutes, take another straight road and you'll find yourself in the city centre and another brings you to the train station in 2 minutes. Inside the apartment has everything you could possibly need and is beautifully decorated. The WiFi password 'homefromhome' could not be more apt. Overall it was a 5* experience and we would love to stay again!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and had everything you needed. The guest book at our disposal is wonderful with extra copies of maps at your disposal if you need it. The apartment is very well located and only a short walk from the train station and a few minutes walk from Promenades des anglais.

Great location. Clean & comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this location. Everything was as we remembered including milk in the fridge for tea and a complimentary bottle of wine. Very comfortable apartment with everything you need close by. Train station less than 5 minutes away, fresh bread and fruit across the street, a supermarket three blocks down the road and the beach just a ten minute walk away.

Late September visit to Nice

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully presented and maintained property. It is spacious, with all mod cons and is very convenient to the prom and main shopping area. I really enjoyed staying here and look forward to a return visit!

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Nice at 7 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Bar tabac Le gounod at 0.05 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Nice Port at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Train : Gare SNCF at 0.1 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A8 autoroute at 0.4 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Le Keter at 0.05 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Isola 2000 at 45 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Promenade des Anglais at 0.2 Kilometres 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.
