Clean, serene, spacious, and lovely

5 of 5
What a beautiful apartment in the heart of Nice. The white glove service matched the elegance and serenity of the apartment. Air conditioning in every room, gorgeous windows, and a well appointed kitchen. Karine was easy to work with and responded right away. We would highly recommend.

Great apartment great position

5 of 5
Richards apartment is in a great position close to many good restaurants, super markets, promenade, public transport, the train station being just a short walk away. The apartment has everything you will need, great shower, kitchen with oven and washer which greatly helped when you just bring hand luggage. The bed was very comfortable. You will not be disappointed with this apartment.
