Fabulous apartment!

5 of 5
This is the second time we have been to stay at Naomi and David's apartment so you may have guessed we love it. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay and chill then this is right for you. The property is very high spec in a secure area with a small private patio/garden which leads to an infinity pool overlooking the sea. Paradise! The owners have spent a considerable amount of time ensuring that everything you need to know about the area and accommodation are to hand and on the odd occasion we needed advice they came back to us straight away. We will be back!

Clean, serene, spacious, and lovely

5 of 5
What a beautiful apartment in the heart of Nice. The white glove service matched the elegance and serenity of the apartment. Air conditioning in every room, gorgeous windows, and a well appointed kitchen. Karine was easy to work with and responded right away. We would highly recommend.
