Francis and Jane were there to welcome us despite our late arrival being one hour late. A lift for the baggage is a lovely convenience after lugging bags up many steps in Europe.
Francis and Jane made sure we knew the important things in the apartment and provided terrific local details, eg where to buy brilliant filled baguettes for EU3, which became a favourite for us. They also had other local conveniences listed like emergency medical contacts (for which we were very grateful), and directions to well priced local restaurants, shops etc. The local shop keepers where we bought supplies were a delight. Francis and Jane were also very responsive to requests during our stay.
The location is lovely, away from the noise of the old town but handy to walk everywhere. Easy access to the train made day trips to Eze, Monaco etc a breeze.
Nice itself is always a lovely city. You can explore galleries, the Old Town, and historical points or enjoy the beach and neighbouring bays.
The apartment is beautifully light and airy and well appointed with mod cons and was spacious for a European city apartment. I would be very happy to recommend this apartment.

Great apartment

We have been back 5 weeks now and can subjectively review our accommodation used during our 5 week holiday through France & Italy. The apartment is very well located in a nice area with the train station within walking distance to get away from Nice and visit the surrouding areas. There is a bakery, small supermarket and bar accross the road with very friendly staff (if like us your French is limited). We were warmly welcomed By the owners who gave use a guide tour of the apartment making sure we understood how to use everything. It is a large spacious clean apartment, lovely and bright in the morning sun. Have to say it was a great place to stay especially if you want to get away from the "tourist areas" but close enough to stroll to them each day, would recommend as worth staying here and if the oppurtunity arises would stay here again ourselves

Amazing Value for a Beautiful Period Property

We stayed here for just over a week and have no complaints whatsoever! Francis and Jane were more than helpful when we arrived and gave us great recommendations on what to do, see, where to go to eat etc. Property was perfectly located, 5 minutes walk from the main promenade, but still so quiet at night. I would definately recommend it to friends and family. One thing I would advise though is to bring your own towels/rugs for the stoney beach!! Finally I would recommend a restaurant in the old town (about 20 mins walk away) called Le Tire Bouchon - 19 Rue de la Préfecture. It was just such a pity that we only discovered this place on our last night!! Food was amazing - perfect place to finish up our holiday :)

My husband and I and our three teens loved this apartment. It is in a a lovely building and the amenities in the apartment are first class .The location is perfect - in the heart of beautiful old Nice, close to the beach, the Hotel Negresco, the promenade des Anglais, great restaurants, cafes, bakeries, shopping, and beautiful views. The owners are charming and provided much help to us and helpful information. It was all good!

Family visit to Nice.

  • Review Submitted: 07-Jul-2009
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2009
We travelled as a family of two adults and 2 children (7 and 4). The apartment is handy to the main train station which is the drop off point for those who get the bus from the airport. It was easily found and the owner gave a good tour of the property upon arrival.
Less than 10 minutes walk to the promenade and the Russian Cathedral, slightly further to the old town. Easy access to a variety of play parks, restaurants, supermarkets etc. The boulangerie around the corner was a regular stop for fresh croissants and bread.
The apartment was clean and well fitted out with DVD player, washing machine, internet access etc. It got hot in the evenings when the windows were closed but that's hardly unusual in Nice during July! The tiny lift and circular staircase may make it unsuitable for those with disabilities.
I would have no problem recommending this property to family or friends. All our dealings with the owner went like clockwork and the apartment certainly met our expectations.

The apartment is only a five minute walk to the beach. It is also only a few blocks from the Avenue Jean Medecin where you will have access to Nice's premier shopping centre, Nice Etoile, and the main shopping district, and the city centre. A grocery store, a pharmacy and a bakery for fresh croissants are just across the street. There are large supermarkets on Avenue Gambetta, only 3 blocks away. Strolling along the Promenade des Anglais to the Old City, you will enjoy its lively restaurants, bars and animated nightlife. On the way to the beach is rue de France, a typical French pedestrian street with many sidewalk cafés and restaurants. The train station is only 5 minutes away with direct service to whole French Riviera such as Cannes, Monaco and Antibes. No need for a car, everything is accessible on foot. Only 3 blocks away is a lovely park for sitting and strolling, on the intersection of Gambetta and Victor Hugo.
