Palais Yolande was terriffic, homely and spotless.
Everything about our stay was perfect. Dealing with Janette was a pleasure. So professional from start to finish. The location of the apartment was superb. All arrangements went perfectly and the apartment was equipped with everything you could think of. Janette provided lots of valuable information about Nice and surrounding area to make our holiday just wonderful. No time wasted trying to find our way around, just consulted Janette's information books and we found all we needed. we would not hesitate to recommend Janette's apartment to anyone and we will definitely be back. Julian (agent) was also very helpful on arrival and we were in apartment spot on time as arranged. All our group were sad to leave. Thank you Janette.
Excellent stay in Nice
7 ladies enjoyed a wonderful stay in this apartment. We found it spacious, spotlessly clean and very well appointed. The location was very good, a few minutes from the sea front, beach and various supermarkets. We spent several evenings in the flower market area which was about a 15 minute walk. We would highly recommend this as a base for a stay in Nice
Lovely Spacious Apartment in Great Location
From the moment we booked this apartment, way back in January, Janette was extremely helpful. We are a group of 4 ladies, celebrating a significant birthday, and this apartment was perfect for us. As there were only 4 of us, we could spread out but the flat sleeps 8 and could sleep 7 in separate beds, so perfect for groups like ours. When we arrived, Janette's friendly representative in Nice showed us round and explained everything about cooker, washing machine, dishwasher tv, wifi etc.. Wifi was very good! The flat was modern with contemporary furnishings and very spacious. The beds were extremely comfortable and the location was brilliant. Walking distance from the Old Town and the sea. The local architecture was beautiful and we were also close to the main shopping streets. We had a wonderful time exploring Nice and surrounding area, including trips to Monaco, Ventilmiglia (in Italy) and Grasse. We also felt there was plenty more to see and would definitely stay in this apartment again. You will not be disappointed if you stay in this apartment!!
A superbly furnished appartment very central
The apartment has everything that you could need , its beautifully decorated and in a very quiet building which is within very close proximity to both shopping and restaurants. Perfect :) we were a group of 6 ladies of a certain age! and had a great week exploring Nice and the surrounding area .
The apartment is lovely and so spacious in a very good location near to Old Town, railway station and airport. It was very clean and we were met on arrival by the manager who was very obliging. The apartment has a wealth of information of places to visit, restaurants etc which we made good use of.
Exceeded our expectations
This was our first visit to Nice for myself and my brother, sister and out partners. We were met and showed around this lovely apartment which exceeded all our expectations with everything we could possibly need. it was within easy reach of the beach, Old Town, shops and restaurants. Very well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Thank you for making our holiday so memorable.
From the Owner
“We are a family with 5 children (age range 17yrs - 29yrs) and Palais Yolande has been our holiday home for 10 years. My husband has been visiting the Cote D'azur for over 20 years and of all the magnificent towns of this region chose Nice as it really does have something for everyone. It is a vibrant city on the sea. We spent a long time searching for the perfect holiday home and we believe we found it in Palais Yolande. It is in a very lovely area of Nice and offers a truly French experience. We have let the apartment for holidays for a number of years now. I have enjoyed the fact that others have likewise got pleasure from our second home and it is extremely important to me that your holiday experience is as near perfect as possible.”
