It is beautifully furnished, spacious and well taken care of. The main bedroom has a lovely view and I really enjoyed the balcony and the morning sunshine. It has a carrefour just around the corner which was very convenient. Most of the restaurants are in the center of Nice, which is about a 30 minute walk, but you can get a bus. I preferred being outside the center as there were less people. The apartment has WiFi which works best at the back of the apartment. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is a good size. Overall we really enjoyed staying in the apartment. You will need to bring your own things for the beach. Its a pebble beach, so I would recommend folding chairs or some sort of cusions to make it comfortable as the umbrellas and sunbeds on the beach are quite expensive. We took the hop on hop off bus tour which is a great way to see the city and it takes you to a little town around the coast which is worth spending some time in. Catherine and her family are very helpful and accommodating as we arrived quite late. Her son speaks English which was great as unfortunately we don't speak French. Overall we loved staying in the apartment and would definitely recommend it.

The apartment looks just as it does in the pictures, the cutest and most comfortable stay we could hope for. It is smack dab in the heart of things, so you can go to the bar literally downstairs and walk home, as well as walk to the farmers market every morning and a pleathora of restaurants! They were very thorough with the details and check in process and were so accommodating! I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
