The living area is open and spacious with well fitted out kitchen lots of light and air from the three large windows. Bedrooms are good size. We did not make use of balcony which is off one of the bedrooms as it is small and overlooked although that adds to the charm of the old town but maybe more for Summer. Your day would start with the church bells and watch out for 12 o clock gun which is not for the faint hearted. If you want to experience the vibe of this wonderful city then this apartment is perfect. Martin and Chloe were excellent hosts very informative and accommodating in terms of a later checkout. Look forward to visiting Nice again as 4 days was not long enough.

It was spotlessly clean, spacious enough for 2, 4 could easily be comfortable there. It was quiet at night but literally 50 yards from the old town action. Great shower, comfortable bed, reliable and fast wifi, large screen TV, you couldn't fault it. Laura was a very friendly host who gave us guides and tips on how to make the most of our visit. Nice is wonderful, what a beautiful city. We were there for a week and made the most of the old town, the port area, the magnificent Massena Square, the promenade, the Russian Cathedral, the shops ..... best holiday we've been on. Also we visited Monaco and Monte Carlo, Cannes and Ville France. We really didn't want to come home as there were so many other things we wanted to do but didn't have the time for. It could be pricey, a pint is about 7 Euros and you will struggle to get a meal in a restaurant for under 15 Euros. However Laura's tips of buying lunch in supermarkets, taking advantage of the many happy hours there which generally run from 5pm to 9pm when a pint is reduced to 4 Euros made it more affordable for us. We are a couple in our mid 50s, reasonably fit so we walked everywhere in Nice. However there are very reasonable bus and tram services that can be used. I just want to thank Laura again for the use of her apartment, in a word, magnifique.
