Guestbook comments from the owner

Nous avons séjourné dix jours dans cet appartement à la mi-septembre. Un endroit merveilleux pour visiter Nice et la Côte d’Azur. Situé sur la rue piétonne Massena avec toute son activité, en plein cœur de Nice, à quelques minutes de la Vieille Ville et de la Promenade des Anglais. L’animation de la rue ne nuit pas au sommeil car les deux chambres à coucher sont situées à l’arrière. L’appartement est d’une propreté exemplaire – merci Lorna! – et fidèle en tous points aux photos inscrites sur le site. Avec, en plus, des fauteuils et un canapé très confortables pour se reposer. Les transports publics sont à quelques pas, autant ceux qui desservent la ville que ceux qui permettent de visiter les autres villes et villages intéressants de la Côte. Les échanges avec Rose et Charles ont été très efficaces et très chaleureux. Une adresse à retenir et à partager.

We stayed ten days in this apartment in mid-September. A wonderful place to live in and to visit Nice and the Côte d'Azur. The location is perfect. In the heart of Nice, on the pedestrian street Massena with all its activity, a few minutes from the Old Town and the Promenade des Anglais. The animation of the street does not interfere with sleep because the two bedrooms are located at the back. The apartment was exceptionally clean - thank you Lorna! - and faithful in all respects to the photos on the site. With, in addition, armchairs and a sofa very comfortable to rest after a day visiting. Public transport is just a few steps away, both those that serve the city and those that allow you to visit the other interesting towns and villages of the coast. The exchanges with Rose and Charles were very efficient and very warm. An address to remember and share.

Great location! Charming apt!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this lovely apartment!It was in an excellent location near the promenade, great shops and restaurants near by. Really quiet with the windows closed however. The apt itself was spotless, the beds were really comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed while we were there! Great hosts, Rose , gave us lots of advice on nice places to visit and the best places to eat! We had a fabulous week and will definitely be back sometime soon!! Thank you.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night from Barcelona and Rose had arrange for Lorna to meet us - she even came down to meet taxi and helped us with our bags and made us very welcome - all at 11pm! Fantastic location - close to beach, old town and railway station and everything you could want. Lots of helpful information in apartment regarding transport, tourist attractions, shopping, doctors, etc - very welcome compared to many other places. Able to walk everywhere. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Wonderful apartment in a central location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this apartment and loved it. The location is on a walking street so parking is an issue. However we found that if you book parking in advance at the Gare Theirs parking lot with the cost is only 10 euro/day with unlimited in/out privileges. The parking lot is an easy 10-15 minute walk from the apartment.

The apartment itself is completely remodeled. It has new flooring and kitchen and bath fixtures. The furniture is quite nice - plenty of seating and light for reading. The best feature are the windows in the living room. If you want to feel like you are in the middle of the noisy walking street below, open the windows. If you want peace and quiet, simply close the windows. The closed windows completely block the sound from the street below.

We really enjoyed walking everywhere in Nice. This apartment is central to everything. The owners are quite nice and are happy to help with questions about where to eat and what to do. The building has a secured front door and an elevator. We highly recommend this apartment!

Fantastic apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at this apartment and it was fantastic. Located centrally with all facilities within five minutes walking distance. The apartment was clean, uncluttered and extremely quiet, with a large lounge, 2 good sized bedrooms and a roof terrace/sun trap.

definitely worth a visit, we'll be back.

Lorna was a great help from directing taxi drivers to directing ourselves and a

pleasure to deal with.

Great Location! Gorgeous Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Great central location! Just a few minutes walk to the Seafront/Promenade with really nice shops and restaurants near by! Really homely, spacious, bright apartment! Nice was a great base to do day trips to Monaco, Antibes, St. Paul-de-Vence and Eze, and public transport was really easy. You can also do boat trip to St Tropez! The owners were lovely to deal with and gave us great recommendations for restaurants and places to visit, and left a welcome pack for us! Nice touch I thought! Will definitely stay in this apartment again! Thank you Rose and Charlie, we had such a great time!

Ideally situated for exploring Nice and surrounding tourist attractions, a two minute walk will bring you to the beach and Promade des Anglaise. Enjoy the wonderful sea

views here while relaxing on the famous 'blue chairs'. The famous Negresco Hotel with its Art Deco collection is a short distance away

The Old Town is 5 minute walk from the apartment with its many restaurants, churches and historic buildings. In Coeur Salaya you can buy flowers,fresh fish,fruit and vegetables,cheeses and exotic spices at the country markets which operated here daily except on Monday when there is an antiques market.

The Château overlooks the Old City and the Bay de Anges all the way across to the airport. The views are magnificent and more than justify the steep climb. There is a lift to the top if you wish and the small tourist train you can get on the Prom will also bring you there. The Château also has Roman ruins.

Nice is ideal for museum and art lovers with Musee des Beaux Arts, the Museum of Modern Art and the Opera House all within walking distance. A short bus trip will take you to Cimiez where you can visit the Mattise Museum, the Roman Ruins and the Monastery and gardens. This is a must.

Nearby attractions also include the” must do” trip to Monaco,the exotic gardens at Eze , with its magnificent view across Cap Ferrat and Nice (must see), the perched village of of St Paul de Vence, which is famous for its art galleries and the nearby Meaght Foundation, Antibes and, of course the film festival centre at Cannes. Also Cagnes-Sur Mare where you can visit the Renoir Museum and Garden(check opening times). The gardens at the Villa de Rothschild,Cap Ferrat are 20 minutes by bus and are superb as are the sea views on the way there.

Bus stops for all these areas are between 2 to10 mins walk from apartment and cost €1.50 each way, including to Monaco and to the ski slopes. All transport within Nice by bus or by tram costs €1.50 Trains from Nice Central station cost a little more but are inexpensive. Nice Central is a 10 minute walk from the apartment. A tram from nearby Place Massena will also take you there.
