                                                              Sejour parfait

                                                              We did have problems in getting to the apartment, absolutely none of Bernard's doing, 90 minutes late down to Easyjet and then the 98 bus was oddly on strike, more likely diverted to take the football fans to Euro finals match. Once we caught up with Bernard everything was great. So many facilities, such tasteful furnishings who couldn't ask for more. First impression on the location- very busy pedestrian walkway with range of restaurants, bars and other small shops, cheese deli had only just opened. However noise was no problem overnight, good nights sleep every night and you are so central that Cours Saleya, Promenade des Anglais with its beach, the museums and mainstream shops such as Galeries Lafayette are all within easy reach on foot. We would not hesitate in recommending a stay here, Bernard and Marie are very welcoming and happy to help in any way.

                                                              Amazing apartment and a perfect location!

                                                              This was absolutely perfect for our 6 night stay in Nice. We were a group of 7 women on a family vacation and found this perfect for our stay. The location was incredible! A quick walk to the beach and super close to tons of restaurants and shops! It was very easy to get to the train station (about a 20-25 min walk) or to the tram line (5 min walk) which takes you to the train station. The apartment itself was amazing! The bedrooms were great and had great air conditioning for when it was warm! The bathrooms were both really good and spacious as well. The common area with the couches and big table were great and comfortable. The TV was great especially for us being able to watch the Euro 2016 games! There was also netflix and Apple TV which was an added bonus! The kitchen was perfect too! A huge fridge and freezer, a dishwasher and a nice oven/stove and microwave. Lots of dishes and glasses and everything we needed to cook with! We would definitely stay here again, Mike was great to communicate with before the trip so we were completely prepared for everything, and Diana was a great help for when we arrived and our departure! Loved loved loved our stay!

                                                              We stayed as a group of 4 for the football. The apartment is in a excellent location, in the Old Town with lots of Bars and Restaurants only a couple of minuted away. The apartment is on the 5th floor with a lift to the 3rd and 2 more flights to be walked up. The apartment is very spacious, clean and decorated nicely. The owner Frank was waiting on arrival with the keys and arrived promptly for handing them back on departure where he helped us arrange transport for the airport. All questions I asked prior to arrival were answered very promptly. The are the apartment is in is an excellent location for exploring all of Nice. I definitely plan to return soon.
