Best sleep I've had in a long time. It's well equipped has everything you would need, clean and at an incredible price. Location is perfect for Nice. Right in the old town, everything is easily accessible. When I return to Nice - I'll be looking to stay here again as it's better than places I've stayed before...which I was surprised at because previous places were great too! Martin and Chloe are very informative and helpful with any questions you may have and very lovely. Thank you!!

The apartment is a brilliant blend of comfort and stylishness. Property owner Karine is the perfect hostess. She has thought of everything and is rightly proud of the beautiful apartment she has renovated which could not be more ideally located in Old Nice, a stone's throw from the beautiful flower market and dazzling Med. It's a brilliant use of space and flooded with light. I particularly appreciated all the kitchen appliances and utensils. It is really helpful (and rare) to find basic supplies like salt and pepper, oil and vinegar in the store cupboard as well as bathroom and washing products. When you are only staying a short time somewhere it can be expensive to buy all those items and then have to leave them behind! Karine is always on hand to answer any questions and gave us a great recommendation to eat at the sailing club just beyond the port. Fantastic bakery on the corner of the road too. Can't wait to go back!
