We were arriving late and due to delays, we were REALLY late. The owner's friend was waiting for us and it was like we weren't late at all. Very gracious.
Location is great. A 5 minute walk, just past the top of the road brings you to the tram that takes you to the tourist heart of Nice and the main line train is a further 2 minutes walk away. The '99' bus stops outside the station and takes you to/ from the airport for a few quid.
The flat itself is mostly good. Plenty of room, 2 sofas, washing machine, dishwasher, etc. Air con is by the front door, but kept the whole apartment cool. Simple and pleasant decor.
There were only 2 real negatives. The bed is the first. It's super saggy, which made my old bones ache a little by the morning. The second is the shower. It is only enclosed on 3 sides. There's a good array of tools to clear the inevitable spills, but a shower door would have been better.
It's really a 5* place for the money, but these 2 issues marred an otherwise great experience.
I do recommend this property, as it's great for the price, close to everything and a great space to hang out in.
This was our third time in Nice and it topped the previous two. Earlier we stayed in the more touristy Jean-Médicin district which we also thoroughly enjoyed. However, having explored a lot of Nice we have come to love the Port and Old Town area the most which is why we found Frédérique and Olivier's gorgeous little studio being ideally located in relation to both. Situated on the top floor of a quaint old building it has a beautiful big balcony overlooking a quiet courtyard and is very well equipped with everything one may ever need making it feel like a true home away from home. One of the nicest discoveries on this trip was Place du Pin located just on the back of the building with tons of bustling cafes and restaurants. This small square is somewhat off the beaten track and not easily found by the tourists which makes it into a wonderful authentic french/niçoise experience. The studio is very close to the Old Town and a 10-min walk from the beach and one can utilise the numerous bike stations in the area to get to anywhere else within a short period of time. We truly enjoyed our week here and cannot wait to be back!
