Superb Spot

  • 5 of 5

A superb location to see and enjoy all Nice has to offer , Antonia Cafe was a great place for petit dejeuner less than a minutes walk from the door. there are so many restaurants within a short walk it is hard to choose where to eat as you feel like eating in them all. the tram is also very close. Michael was a superb host,very helpful and an inspiration for our stay bringing us local knowledge of the area that made our time there very special. Michaels' home has all the facilities you would need for a comfortable stay. we would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay again without hesitation.thank you Michael and Danny

For any couple or single person staying in NIce This apartment is perfect.

Michel is a charming and a most help full host, full of suggestions whether it be shopping eating out or sight seeing.

As it is situated in the old town, it is full of charm and character. Great for buying fresh baked bread and fresh pasty in the morning. I would recommend ta short train trip if you like a sandy beach. Antique market worth a visit. Lots to see. Great hair stylist just out side apartment. I would return

Kind and friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

Because the apartment is located in old city of Nice, it is very convenient for looking around the city and close to the tram/bus stations for Eze, Monaco, and so on. The owner is so kind and friendly. He helps us for staying in Nice.

The apartment room is old, small, partly shared with the owner but cleaned very well and relaxing me.

Accueil sympatique dans le Vieux Nice

  • 3 of 5

Nous avons fait en couple un séjour agréable à partir de notre "base" située dans le Vieux Nice. Le propriétaire s'est déplacé à notre rencontre pour nous faciliter l'accès à son adresse et nous a aider à trouver une place de stationnement gratuite ce qui est un peu un exploit dans le quartier.

Il a été très courtois et discret afin que nous puissions disposer le plus librement possible des pièces communes.

Une adresse bien située pour découvrir la vie niçoise.

Central and superb - Nice Old Town

  • 5 of 5

Just off the Place Rossetti, Michel runs a clean comfortable flat with your own space, double glazing (essential for good sleep), fans (essential for warm nights) and a warm welcome. Michel is good company, having spent an evening chatting to him, and the flat is ideal for Nice Old Town, the cafes, beach, central park area and all the things you may wish to see. All transport options along the Cote D'azure are close by. We wholeheartedly recommend this option for those not wishing to pay high hotel bills, but wishing to be in the heart of Nice with good advice and company.

Best Place in the French Riviera

  • 5 of 5

Michel was a fabulous host for our entire trip to the Riviera. He was friendly, knowledgable, and a fun person to be around. He gave us great recommendations for restaurants, groceries, fresh bread, and sights to see in and outside of Nice. Since there are many many options in Nice, his advice was invaluable. He made us coffee on occasion and sat up with us a couple nights while we sipped French wine and talked about traveling, culture, etc.

The apartment was perfect as well. It's a 5 minute tram ride from the train station and a 3 minute walk from the tram stop. So, it won't take you more than 10 minutes to get there and because its right next to the tram stop you can get anywhere VERY easily, including Cannes, Ville Franche Su Mer, St. Jean Cap Ferrat, etc. The apartment is right in the middle of old town, the best area of Nice. Inside is a kitchen with everything you need, a washing machine, and the room is comfortable and includes a ceiling fan and window that keeps you very comfortably cool during the day or at night.

Overall this is one of the best places we've stayed on our extended trip in all of Europe because of the location, comforts, and most of all the host, Michel. Stay here!
