                                                                                                      We booked Le 17 for little break and as a treat for my daughters and granddaughter. Being six of us, we wanted somewhere where we could be together rather than 3 separate hotel rooms.... somewhere with space to hang out together and enjoy some quality family time. Obviously the photos give an excellent impression of the apartment and almost look too good to be true, but when Sara Jane greeted us and took us inside, we truly felt the WOW factor! Not only is it as stunning as the pictures suggest, but feels so light, airy and spacious, plenty of room for all of us to enjoy. The bedrooms are beautifully and individually decorated and furnished, each with an equally lovely adjacent or en suite bathroom. We were well insulated from the night time hubbub from the street below by the large and efficient double glazed windows...aircon will keep things cool if you choose to have them closed. Super comfortable beds too. The kitchen is a joy to cook in, absolutely everything we could have wanted was there for us, even a Nespresso machine just like ours at home. The large open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area makes for a great space to enjoy time together if you choose to 'dine in', as we did several times. You can really feel and appreciate the love and passion that has gone into creating this property. Nothing has been overlooked or added without reason. The owner, Karine, described herself to me as "an ambassador of Frenchness", something that really shines through, not only in the presentation of the apartment but in the advice and recommendations in old Nice or Vielle Ville. It's a charming and characterful village in its own right, narrow alleys full of interesting shops, great bars and restaurants and great open squares with markets and sunshine. In summary - Apartment - 11/10 - Simply beautiful Old Nice - 11/10 - A charming pocket of Beauté française The owner, Karine - Also charming and a pleasure to deal with
