Great flat

5 of 5
The flat is located in a quiet residential area. Ignore the outside view. The stairwell is modern and clean. The flat itself is located at the rear of the building. It's very well finished, comfortable and is an ideal size for a couple. There's a rain shower and a detachable shower in a good-sized shower cabin. There's a kettle in the kitchen in addition to the list of the equipment on the description. There's a boulangerie and a greengrocer downstairs, Casino supermarket just three blocks away. The flat is 5 minutes walk away from the train station, airport bus stop and the main shopping street. A stroll to the Promenade takes about 15 minutes. The owners are very nice and accommodating. We would come back again.

Lovely flat, superb location

5 of 5
We came for a week with 2 children. The Uber taxi from the airport took only 15 minutes to drop us at the flat. The extremely helpful Ivan made it a smooth and welcoming check in. The flat is perfectly located to enjoy all that Nice has to offer. There is a lovely boulangerie next door and the beach/train station/old town and main shopping streets only a short walk away. We enjoyed the night parade at the Carnival in Place Massena which like everything else was very close by. The flat was very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It was great to have 2 bathrooms so we gave one to the kids and had the ensuite in the master bedroom all to ourself. We came to enjoy some winter sun but also wanted to do some skiing. There is a very convenient ski bus that leaves every morning from the train station to 2 different ski resorts at a very nominal cost of €4 per person each way and brings you back in the evening. We just had to walk about 6 or 7 minutes to get the bus and it dropped us right at the ski resort. So we managed to get 2 full days of skiing done while staying in Nice enjoying great weather when we were not on the slopes. One day we went for a walk around the stunning coastline of the Cap Ferrat peninsula which was a very short train journey away from Nice. Would definitely book this apartment on our next trip to Nice.
