This absolutely lovely apartment has everything going for it, great location - on the edge of the Old Town and close proximity to the sea. From the onset Le 17 didn't disappoint in any way from the elegant and restful decor to the well designed kitchen which was well equipped and lacked nothing we required. The bedrooms were very comfortable and it was a bonus for each room to have its own shower/bath with quality towels and a selection of toiletries. The position of Le17 is convenient, you can open the windows in the morning and your nose will lead you to freshly baked bread and goodies from the nearby boulangerie. As regular visitors to Nice we will definitely be returning and I'm sure it will be to Le17.

My family of two adults and two young children stayed for about 5 weeks during July and August 2017 and had the most wonderful time. The apartment is clean, neat and well stocked with all the essentials. We truly felt at home for the duration of our stay with only need of groceries from the market within short walking distance. Also, the beach, train station and bus station are very nearby, which was very convenient. Barbara and Pascal were excellent hosts. They were there for any need that arose and always friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this place and hope to be able to stay again in the future!
