Nice is one of the most popular spots for holiday rentals along the French Riviera coast. Although Nice is popular amongst young visitors, it has something to offer for family and senior holidaymakers as well.

Very spacious and clean and having two bathrooms was a plus. The beds were amazingly comfortable - we slept liked logs. Perfect location and so convenient for everything - a little supermarket across the road, which had everything you needed and lovely reasonably priced restuarants on the street. It was only two minutes to the promenade and the tourist information office, where you could pick up bus timetables, maps etc.and general information. We only had four full days in Nice, but visited lots of places. We spent one day wandering around the old town and harbour and along the beautiful promenade and other days spent visiting Monaco, Antibes and the village of Eze - all a must to do and very easy to get around on the buses, which were very cheap. We must return to see more of this spectacular area.

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.

It is the perfect size for a family with kids, and the garden and the upstairs pool gave our kids the opportunity to have areas where they could "Escape the parents" and we could relax knowing they were in a secured area. It was clean, roomy, lots of light and enjoyable. Everything is a quick walk, the sea, the supermarket, the old town and restaurants. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. Always a quick response to emails. It was our first time in Menton, and we really loved the area, you are in the cote d' azur but don't feel like your in a holiday resort. Everybody is very friendly and the town is very well connect with transport. All in all a great property and a great location, we highly recommend this property and Menton. We will be back, Johanna
