Quiet location, easy walk to the beach

Thank you so much for a perfect weekend in Nice. Your place is wonderfully quiet and extremely comfortable. Will definitely be heading back. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for centrally located, comfortable, quiet place, and within walking distance of everything.

Sunny New Year in Grimaldi

5 of 5
Beautiful, clean, spacious apartment in an excellent location. Lovely, large and bright lounge/dining room and separate well equipped kitchen. Three large bedrooms with comfortable beds and good linen. Catherine is delightful and welcomed us to the apartment and gave us all the information we needed. She also left us a contact number just in case, which was reassuring. The apartment had a few bits and pieces (salt, pepper, oil) etc... that you need to get started in the kitchen and bathroom and even better complimentary local wine to sample. We had a fabulous New year celebration and thank you to Sunlight Properties for the beautiful apartment.
