Détente et bon vivre dans un cadre élégant

5 of 5
Le 17 est un appartement extrêmement charmant, vaste, tout juste rénové. L'accueil est très agréable et les hôtes disponibles en cas de besoin. La situation est idéale, nous avons tout fait à pied. Les excellents restaurants du Vieux Nice sont à 2 pas, tout comme l'Opéra, le Musée d'Art Moderne, la mer... Une belle façon de profiter de la ville ! Merci !!

Perfect

5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed in the lovely apartment two times. We come to Nice every December and have stayed in several different apartments over the years. This is the absolute best. Well appointed, breathtaking views of the sea and the Port, great location near the market and the old town, yet very peaceful. You can open the doors facing the sea and have a nap in a comfortable chair facing the sun and the sea. We love walking along the sea on the way to the market. The manager is very pleasant and attentive.

Good location, comfortable, well-equipped.

We have recently enjoyed our seventh December stay in Santa Lucia. The apartment is ideally situated in a quiet street in the Vieille Ville a few metres from the Porte Fausse which is close to the bus stops for arriving from or leaving for the airport, and also the tram stops. Although it is close to the main shopping area, it is very quiet and peaceful, especially in the early morning or in the evening. It is surrounded by all the shops one needs for self-catering, plus several excellent chocolateries, and just 5 minutes walk from the Cours Saleya and, a few minutes further on, the beach. The entrance and stairway to the apartments is unprepossessing, but once inside, it is very attractive and has everything one needs. The living area retains the original tile floors, except in kitchen and bathroom and the décor is simple, with comfortable furniture. The kitchen is well equipped, with everything one needs, whether one wants to do a lot of self-catering or just simple things. There is an efficient washing machine. The bathroom has a good shower in the bath. The bed is comfortable. Although the Cathedral is just a few metres away, the bells are not too intrusive and, in the early morning, with the shutters and windows closed, one doesn't hear them. We consider the apartment a home from home. There are many good restaurants in close walking distance. L'Écurie, just across the road is excellent. There are many things to do in Nice – museums and art galleries, parks, the Opera, walks up to the top of the Colline du Château, round the harbour and along the sentier littoral in one direction, or along the Promenade des Anglais in the other, watching the world go by. We are looking forward to our next visit.
