Davina met us on arrival and was very helpful. The location is about ten minutes’ walk from the pedestrianised restaurant area, and the sea. We were here in February, but the city was open, and friendly. The main train station is a short walk, we went to Monaco, Antibes, and Menton on different days, each about 30/40 minutes by train. No need for a car. Boulangerie and supermarket two blocks away. Definitely recommended, nothing not to like. Very friendly city.

Beautifully stylish with the owners having a real flair for design. Great for an escape from the worst of the British weather. Enjoyed all the facilities of the villa - efficient heating, wifi, tv and dvd- on inclement days and was lovely to get out and about in the area when it was sunny. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The apartment is modern where it needs to be (kitchen, bathroom etc) but has immense character in materials and layout. With fantastic views across Port Vauban to Nice and beyond there is always something interesting to see. Sunrise over the Mediterranean is very special. Ideally located for the fresh local market and the historic old town. We chose not to hire a car, but had no trouble using the nearby bus and railway links. The owners provide a premium service and go out of their way to make sure that your stay is wonderful in every way. We really appreciated the little touches like a starter pack including a fresh bottle of milk ( and one of wine!) ready in the fridge, DVD's of films shot in the local area and a range of books. Certainly such attention to detail is not universal, and we would thoroughly recommend a stay here in this very special place.
