                                      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.

                                      Lovely apartment, fantastic location in the old town, great view!

                                      We had a fantastic few days staying in this beautiful apartment. Its location, on a lovely street right in the centre of Nice's old town, minutes from the market, minutes from the beach, beautiful park etc., was perfect for us. The building itself is also great. Rosemary was very friendly and helpful - she met us personally and showed us to the apartment, and gave us some great recommendations for restaurants, things to do etc., as well as a fantastic bakery! The apartment is spotless, cosy and had everything we needed (as well as a brilliant view of the sea over the rooftops of the old town!). We'd definitely recommend the apartment and are hoping to visit Nice many more times in the future! Thank you for a wonderful introduction to the city!

                                      Perfect Apartment

                                      5 of 5
                                      The apartment is absolutely immaculate, with real attention to detail right down to fresh flowers. The decor and furnishings are first class, and the layout of the apartment makes for a really comfortable stay. We have been coming to Nice every year for the past few years, and this is most certainly the best apartment we have rented. The fact that it situated in the Old Town, but is quiet at night, makes it even more impressive. We will be recommending it to our friends.
