                                      Great apartment for a holiday in Nice

                                      5 of 5
                                      in June this year we (3 people in the 60s) stayed in the apartment. Two uf us for the second time. The apartment has got all you need and we especially loved the terrace (when it was not raining). It is situated fantastic in the Massena Square just at the beginning of the pedestrian street and only a 10 minutes walk from the center of the old town. We only met friendly people including a very friendly and smiling Diana who let us in the apartment and explained what was necessary to know about it. We highly recommend this place and hope to return next year ourselves.

                                      The best apartment I have stayed in, in Nice.

                                      4 of 5
                                      I have been going to Nice twice a year for the last 15 years and this apartment is the best I have stayed in. We were met by the owner Sebastien who speaks English very well. He has thought of every thing in this apartment and the decoration and furnishing are of the highest standard. The apartment is situated in Place Massena which is right in the centre of Nice, 4 to 5 minutes walk from the Old Town , 2 to 3 minutes walk to the beach. The metro is on the square, and if you need to go to Nice station this is 3 stops on the metro. All the buses stop outside the apartment. The apartment is a bigger than most in Nice and because he has installed air conditioning and double glazing it is so quiet although you are in the heart of life, surrounded by restaurants and shops, there is something for everyone. Congratulations to Sebastien and I look forward to comming back in December. Stay in apartment June 2016 Veronica

                                      April review!

                                      5 of 5
                                      This was our seventh or eighth visit to Nice but the first time in an apartment. We were two couples travelling together and the accommodation was ideal. It is decorated to an excellent standard, has ample space including a large lounge, spacious bedrooms and a well-equipped kitchen. Although it overlooks the Place Massena, the apartment is very quiet with no traffic noise. It is ideally located on the edge of the Old Town but is also only a step away from the main shopping area, with access to bars, restaurants and public transport. The boulangerie on the same street does wonderful croissants for breakfast! Nic has left plenty of information on the local area, and also operating instructions for all the appliances. Visits to Nice, Antibes, Villefranche, Monaco and Eze were all on our agenda and worth visiting. For eating out at night you are spoiled for choice. In 8 visits we have tried many of the restaurants and this year was the first time we had a disappointing meal - and we had eaten in the same restaurant before so can only assume it was an off night. We particularly like O Palermo, Atmosphere and La Ville de Sienne. Late in the evening we like to finish at Mori's bar for coffee and a digestif! The weather at this time of year has always been lovely and was about 24C when we left on 26th April. We would not hesitate to return and will recommend the apartment to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in NIce.
