Very, very pleased
We were very, very pleased with this apartment. It is exactly as described and the owners were polite and attentive, offering help and advice. We found it very comfortable, perfect for a family of four and with effective airconditioning. We also thought the location was ideal; in the centre of a lively pedestrianised area with supermarkets, bars and restaurants, a manageable walk from the station and just five minutes from both the beach and the old town. We were looking for a base to enjoy Nice and the wider area and this was perfect, we would not hesitate to book again or to recommend to others.
Thank you Mark and Family,we are delighted you enjoyed your stay.We love Nice and it’s surrounds and are happy to give our tips and recommendations to help our guests to get the best from their holiday.

Coffee and Cakes in the best location in Nice .
I have just returned from a fabulous week in this apartment in the best location in Nice.
My wife and two teenager daughters could not recommend a better place to stay while in Nice. We were greeted by the host Lorna together with a four page list (provided by the owners) about where to visit/places to eat and a detailed information pack about how to get around Nice via Trains and bus.The restaurants on the list were excellent and we had no need for a guide book. The apartment itself was perfect for us as everything was within a short walk. Every morning we strolled to the promenade to swim followed by a coffee and cake 50 meters from the front door of the apartment and sat people watching as we relaxed sipping our coffee and amazing cakes. The train station is only a 10 min walk and links you to so many places. we traveled three times by train but we all loved returning to our street in Nice.The apartment was comfortable with air con and on the 3rd floor away from the Hussle and bustle of the street below. When i return to Nice this is the place to stay and for a potential visitor you cannot go wrong staying here if you want to get the perfect Nice experience in a really nice apartment. Finally the power shower in the bathroom deserves a 10/10.
Thank you Cathal for your lovely review. Charles and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We love telling our guests our favourite places to eat ,so it is good that you enjoyed them too.
Yes the shower is fab....wish I had as good at home!!
Thank you for choosing to stay in our apartment.

Nice Rue Massena
The property was just as pictured. Nicely maintained. Even though it was on busy Rue Massena, it was quiet. It was a very walkable area. Lorna, our host's assistant, was very helpful upon our arrival.
Thank you Linda. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes we love how quiet it is,especially at night.
Thank you for mentioning Lorna,she is our treasure over there!

Great location! Charming apt!
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.
Thank you Matt for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. A lot of our guests mention how quiet it is even though it is on main pedestrian street. We hope you and your friend return to Nice in the future and we would be happy to have you stay again.

Great place to stay
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.
Thank you Pam. We are happy you enjoyed your short visit to a Nice and hope to welcome you back for a longer stay in the future.

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.
