Winter in Nice.

5 of 5
This is the fourth winter we have rented this apartment. It is ideally situated in a pedestrian area with a good selection of shops and restaurants, + easy access to the bus termini to take advantage of the wonderful and cheap service. The apartment is small but has everything that is needed for a comfortable stay, wifi, good selection of dvds, etc. We certainly made a lot of use of the balcony on the sunny afternoons enjoying a glass of wine and people watching the street below. We would certainly recommend this apartment, we will probably back for a fifth stay next winter all being well.

Wonderful stay in the centre of Nice

5 of 5
We loved our stay at this apartment at the begininng of February. Even though many would find this an unconventional time to visit Nice, I would say it is a great time to visit this lovely city. We had a very positive experience from start to finish and can highly commend this apartment. We experienced highly efficient mail correspondence concerning any of our questions and an absolutely invaluable on-site assistant who went out of her way to help us in all possible ways. Thank you Val!!. This lovely apartment is ideally located in the centre of Nice. All amenities on the doorstep. As we were travelling with children (teenagers) and were on a budget, it was not possible for us to eat out every night. However, no problem, in this apartment, it was a pleasure to prepare and enjoy the evening meal at home, as everything is in place so that this can be done. There are plenty of small bakeries and supermarkets nearby. For us, the lifesaver was the "Picard" around the corner....we could enjoy a simple meal at the lovely table at the window with a good bottle of wine..... what more could you wish for. The beds were very comfortable and we all slept like babies.....especially those of us who were lucky enough to have enjoyed the excellent wine...The daily early morning 10 km run / walk is highly recommended and absolutely easily reachable from the apartment. We hope to go back and think this would be a good destination regardless of time of year.

Beautiful Stay!

5 of 5
The apartment is beautiful exactly as the photos show even better! It is equipped with everything you need for a stress free stay in the South of France. The airport pick-up made arrival fast and worry free. Hanna was waiting at the apartment to show me how everything worked and she even spent extra time making sure everything worked and writing down all the buses and trains I would need to reach different places on the Riviera. She was so kind and she even checked in throughout the week to see if I needed anything her thoughtfulness was very much appreciated! I would definitely recommend sunlight properties!
