Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed over Christmas and had a realy good time. Connie was extremely helpful and the apartment was clean and airy and light, modern but with the old character too. Floors are wood and marble so great for our dog and for summer if you come from the beach. It was so close to the wonderful market, open every day including Christmas day, and to many many restaurants. It overlooked the sea front and the road was not too bad here as it is down to single track. Great to sit and stare out over breakfast.

Everything we needed was provided plus a lovely welcoming basket on arrival. Parking might be an issue (it was not for us due to Connie's help) but to be honest we only used the car 1 day to go to Italy! Loads to do in Nice which is a vibrant city for locals as well as tourists all year round. We hope to return.

Lovely Apartment with Charachter in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

I have just returned from a week (two adults and two ten year olds). The apartment has an excellent location as it sits so close to the promenade with a decent balcony that is a great spot for people watching. The road on the prom is very busy with cars, motorcycles and people strolling past. Don't let this put you off because the entrance is on a quiet road at the rear and both bedrooms are at the rear and there is no noise at night. There is a staircase to negotiate to reach the apartment.

We were met by Connie at the property who is extremely helpful and the collection of keys could not have been easier. The apartment is very clean and well equipped for eating in. The beach has life guards at peak times and flag system to advise on bathing conditions. It is a pebble beach and there are lots of watersports etc further down the beach.

It is a short stroll of a minute or two to the bustling Old Town with narrow streets and open spaces with hundreds of restaurants. There is market for fruit, fish, flowers and antiques close by. Local supermarkets are dotted around although the closest I found was a good ten minute walk. The area feels very safe to walk around and I found the local vendors to be very helpful. The Old Port is a ten minute walk away and mixes the old with the new, commercial and leisure craft. Monte Carlo is a short train journey and the trains are cheap and efficient.

I enjoyed Nice and if I ever return I would for sure stay here again.

Perfectly Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited Nice, France in late April 2017. We wanted to stay in an apartment like setting with a kitchen due to the fact that my husband and I brought our 2 young girls (ages 2yrs and 5yrs). We couldn't have chosen a better place. This apartment was amazing. The location was spectacular. The views of the Mediterranean were breathtaking. The size of the apartment was perfect for our girls to run around and play. They loved to people watch when we opened the French doors overlooking the Promenade des Aglais and the Mediterranean. The kitchen was stocked with everything (dishes, utensils, pots, pans, cutlery, etc) to prepare homemade meals if we were too tired to eat out or to prepare meals for my girls. I loved the fact that there was also a washing machine. It helped me to pack light knowing that I would be able to do laundry during our 15 day vacation in Europe. The location of the apartment is walking distance to most of the major sights to see (Cours Saleya, Castle Hill, Promenade des Anglais, the #ILOVENICE photo op site, etc). Eileen, the owner, was spectacular. She was very professional, prompt, and helpful with my inquiries.

The only downsides I would say regarding the apartment are that the cable tv was not working and if you are sensitive to noise, it may be too noisy to hear the cars whiz by. The fact that the cable tv was not working did not bother me at all. We came to Nice for vacation, not to watch TV. Fortunately, the apartment comes with free wifi and we had our iPads handy to entertain the girls if they wanted a bit of screen time. You could only hear the whizzing cars if you sit in the front room (living room). Once you shut the bedroom door and the door leading out to the living room, you won't hear the cars.

Overall, I would highly recommend this apartment. My family and I would come back to it in a heartbeat if we visit Nice again.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this apartment! Coffee on that patio every morning is one of our favorite memories of the trip. The view really is as beautiful as the pics and the apartment was very clean! Connie was great. She made sure the coming and going was easy and we were stocked with everything we needed. The location couldn't be better - so close to everything you could want... the beach, restaurants, sights, shopping, everything! I would recommend this apartment to everyone! If you're researching apts in Nice and are trying to figure out which rental to stay in, it's this one!!!

Great location - stunning Sea View!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is very well equipped, spacious and beautiful. Location great with old town just outside the door, the harbour around the corner an the sea right across the street. The traffic is busy outside the living-room and kitchen but we weren´t disturbed by it in the bedrooms which are located on the opposite side of the apartment.

Connie was very helpful and kind to us despite our late arrival. A welcome kit with milk, water, juice, wine, bread, cheese, eggs etc waited for us upon arrival. The wardrobes, in both bedrooms are generous and filled with hangers - you won´t miss anything here!

If there is anything - the bed in the master bedroom was broken somewhere in the frame so it made noises whenever you moved in it.

Overall - we are satisfied with this apartment and will definitely return if we come to Nice again!

The “Ponchettes” are one of the landmarks of Old Nice, classified for protection as an historical and architectural treasure. Dating from the 18th century the apartment is situated among the arcades and terraces that make up the Ponchettes. The apartment has beautiful views over the Baie des Anges (Bay of Angels), with a shingle beach directly opposite and the old castle is a short stroll away. Also on your doorstep is the Promenade des Anglais - Nice's famous seafront esplanade. It's 6km long and is a fantastic place for a stroll or you can hire a bicycle or roller blade up and down. The Cours Saleya with its famous flower market, cafes and restaurants is less than a minutes walk from the house. Nearby there are also some excellent speciality shops, art galleries and museums (Musee Matisse, Musee des Beaux Arts, Musee d'Art Moderne et Contemporain).

Other Activities: Golf 30min drive, skiing 1hr 15min drive
