From initially booking the apartment the owners could not have been more helpful with tips and suggestions of where to eat and what to do. Excellent instructions on transport and how to find the apartment where gratefully received and also very comprehensive. Dorine met us at the apartment and could also have not been more helpful to us. The apartment itself is well equipped and has everything you need. Situated right in the old town of Nice, you are in the hustle and bustle of the French life. However, at night after 11pm, so quiet, you couldn't hear a thing... There is so much to do in Nice itself and we enjoyed plenty of walks along the Promenade Des Anglais and also looking at the amazing boats by the Port. We travelled to Monaco on the bus for €1.50 which is worth the ride in itself. (remember to sit on the right of the bus for the views). We would definitely visit and stay in this apartment again and cannot thank Linda and Mark for making our special 20th Anniversary get away something we will always remember and cherish. 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!
