It is very near Nice Opera, on the furthest south east corner of Carre d'Or, just 75 feet from Old Town. Major construction for this flat was finished November 2012 and, the design element and finishings we just completed in March 2013. So everything is in new condition. Ideal for a family of four.

About Frank and Aurelia

We are a French American couple with three daughters. Due to a sudden family emergency involving our oldest daughter we were unable to both work full time jobs. So we spent a considerable amount of time considering several industries that fit our skill set and fit within the framework of our community. Plus, something that would provide us the freedom to dedicate ourselves to our daughters needs. One day we came across this article about new holiday rentals. So we spent several months researching it and another two years finding the right property. Than we spent another six months buying and completely gut rehabbing this amazing apartment. It has been a few years since we started and we absolutely love it. We have gained some much experience and really fine tuned our properties and services. Our guests have been overall fantastic. We would love to host your stay so please book.

Frank and Aurelia purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Frank and Aurelia chose Carre d'Or

It took us two years of active searching to find this perfectly placed property. It really is the best location in town. We planned out and built an excellent product, as you can see in the pictures. Everything was built with the guest in mind, we have added amenities that just don't exist in any other property in the area. This flat was purposefully build with the holiday guest in mind. It's a trifecta, great flat, great location, and hosts that are willing to go the extra mile. Everything is brand new. The furniture, the appliance, everything is new. Through in the 4 meter high ceilings and large spaces and having everything just outside the front door and you will love it here too.

What makes this apartment unique

It is so hard to find a flat in this great of an area. Everything the Côte d'Azur has to offer is right here. But we also have added unique features like Apple TV, Air printing, TV with movies in your native language and a complete kitchen. Plus, you get to enjoy the most well thought out loft in the area. Give us a chance and send us an inquiry today.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thought the house was very modern and clean. Just be careful when you are using facilities at this place. We ended up paying 40euro for chipping a plate and a tiny scratch on the wall. If you are over 6.2feet tall you will be struggling to be comfortable in this place. Overall good location, close to the beach and wonderful host. *** HOST REPLY*** The 40 euro was for a hole in a wall.

Great location, very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

Frank, the owner was very responsive to my e-mails before arrival. He was on time for our check-in and the apartment was very clean. He was very friendly and took time to walk us through the unit. He was all the time offering his assistance and he gave us very nice dinner recommendations ( You cannot leave Nice without trying the bouillabaisse at Boccaccio).

The unit has been very fully renovated inside, very fresh and modern style. The loft style give it a cool character.

The building itself is old and not very nice itself, but the location is very good, near Place Massena, Promenade des Anglais and Cours Saleya. You can move around the city walking, by tram or bus without any problem.

The only two cons:

1. the bathroom is downstairs, and the staircase to go down is too narrow and shaky (you think twice to go to the bathroom at night).

2. The mattress is very uncomfortable, too thin and bended to the center.

A great advantage: there are two double beds upstairs (one of them can fit one adult and one child because it is shorter in one side), so it is good for a whole family.

Another advantage, if you come driving a car, is that there is a parking garage right in front, but be careful and do not leave anything in the car, because we left our GPS visible and they broke one window trying to steal it.

Owner's Response: Very sorry this couple did not read the advertisement and discription prior to their arrival. Unfortunetly, these guests broke a brand new table during their stay which they had to pay for. They also checked in after midnight without contacting us to let us know they would be 8 hours late. We did not charge them for the late check in. Their review does not match our experience with them. Also, we are not sure what their leaving expensive electronics on their rental car seat and in plain view has to do with our amazing apartment. On a plus, they brought to our attention a mattress that was not performing as intended and we replaced it with a brand new mattress and box spring. We have also added a hand rail to the stairs. For future guests, as we have clearly indicated in our advertisement, the two full sized beds are in the loft area and the bathroom is directly below on the main level, along with a sofa sleeper. If you have mobility issues this might not be the best solution for you. We have received over 150 five star reviews between our various websites. We are positive you will love it here so please feel free to book.

Incredible locatiom

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. Our family have stayed at several holiday apartments and the loft was amongst the very best, certainly the cleanest. A beautiful apartment with everything you could possibly need. Frank met us for check in. He was a pleasure to deal with. He answered all of our question. He even made excellent recommendations for restaurants and gave us great tips to local sites. The location of the apartment was excellent. Having our home base so close to everything made it easy to take breaks when we needed. Taking everything into account this was our favorite place to stay. We strongly recommend this apartment. Merci Frank et Aurelia

Can't judge "book" by its cover

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Suite during our visit to Nice. From the street, one could never tell that there was such a wonderful flat up one flight of stairs. Once inside, we found a very modern and well equipped unit. It proved to be a clean and comfortable apartment that is ideally located in the city. It's only a few minutes walk to the famous oceanside and also to dozens of good restaurants. The owner, Frank, was very helpful throughout and even suggested that we visit St Jean Cap Ferrat. What an absolutely wonderful locale. It's right on the water as well as being a favourite area for many celebrities. Well worth the 30 minute bus ride. The only appliances that we wished we had was a washer/dryer in this particular unit. It's our understanding that the loft above has them though. If that's something that you'd like you might consider the loft instead. Maybe a washer/dryer is in Frank and Aurelia's future plans for the Suite. Not sure.

Regardless, the flat is terrific and we highly recommend it to visitors who have a few days or more to spend in Nice. You won't be disappointed!

If we are fortunate enough to return to this beautiful city, we will certainly try to stay in one of Frank and Aurelia's apartments once again.

Excellent Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We set out on our daughter's 15th birthday celebration ("quinceanero"), which is the Latino version of the 'sweet sixteen' in the U.S.A. After 24 hours of flight time, the arrival at the apartment was spectacular. The pictures that Frank has posted does the apartment no justice. It is an exceptionally modern, well kept, and centric property which affords all the comforts of home!

On a related note, Frank was very attentive to our needs, which were not many, and would once in a while look in on us to ensure all was ok. In addition he was an open book on what to see and do in Nice and surrounding areas, balancing out pre-travel research.

We are definitely returning to this property and have already recommended to others this property for upcoming visits. We look forward to our next visit!

Best location in the Côte d'Azur. Located directly between Carre'Or and Old town everything Nice has to offer is right outside the front door. In addition, the loft is located perfectly for excursions to neighbouring cities. Public transportation is just around the corner. Plus, there are several car rental agencies just in the neighbourhood. Also, bike and boat rental agencies very near by.
