Excellent property and location

  • 5 of 5

Maison Cerise is a lovely place, set up in the hills just above Nice. It's outside space is especially impressive, with two terraces, a garden and a pool. We spent a week there at the end of September. It's only about 30 minutes drive from the airport but once you're there you wouldn't know it - the views are fantastic and its quiet.

Whilst you need a car to get around, we found that the best way was to drive to the Henri Sappia tram stop (about a mile away down the hill) where you can park for free and then use the tram to get into the town centre - it's much easier than driving through Nice in the traffic. You can then use the main train station to visit Monaco, Eze, Cap Farat etc. The car is essential, though, if you want to explore the mountains, which are well worth a visit.

Maison Cerise is well equipped and has clearly been renovated in the recent past to a high standard. It's one of those places that you're happy to stay put in, even though you know you should go out and explore. It also came with a friendly cat that lived in the garden. I'd recommend it to anyone seeking an accessible, comfortable and quiet holiday. I think we'll be booking it again soon!

Deceptively spacious with a good level of equipment and appliances.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the peaceful location of this property being accessed from a narrow uphill road which leads to a shared drive with electric gates at the end which provide safe access. The property itself is joined on to a larger house at the side but in actual fact this never felt the case because the layout offered plenty of privacy. Very pretty large gardens with great views over Niece and the sea beyond.

We found this a perfect base for touring the area and would certainly visit again.

Traumurlaub im Traumhäuschen

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten in der bezaubernden Maison Cerise mit den wundervollen Gärten und Terrassen einen phantastischen Spätsommer-Urlaub mit allem was das Herz begehrt. Das Haus ist so hochwertig und komplett ausgestattet, dass es wirklich an nichts fehlt, sofern man - wie wir - nicht unbedingt einen Pool braucht. Der bezaubernde Blick über Nizza und das Meer... vom Schlafzimmer, aus der Küche oder einfach beim Frühstück auf der Terrasse - unser Urlaub war wirklich ein Traum und die Maison Cerise hat einen ganz großen Teil dazu beigetragen!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

This charming house is perfect for getting away from it all. With amazing views over Nice and the Mediterranean and surrounded by beautiful mature gardens, you can laze the days away reading a book and sitting on the terraces or from the house by car see the many attractions that Nice and the Cote d'Azur has to offer.

The house itself is full of character and comfortably furnished, also very well equipped with all mod cons and a modern fitted kitchen but without taking any of its charm away. It was wonderful being able to eat breakfast al fresco under the mature vines, which gave much needed shade at other times of day. Then around the corner is the 'sun terrace' with very comfy loungers. It's hard to tear yourself away to do some sightseeing as everything you need is there and if it's relaxation you are after, this is certainly the place to find it.

We will definitely be coming back and the owner's friendliness and efficiency certainly added to the positives of this wonderful find.

A little paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had very nice holidays in this charming little house. The view and the garden are beautiful. We loved taking time on the terrace. It's very calm but near from the city. We discovered two restaurants of "spécialités niçoises" in Falicon, at five minutes from the house, it was delicious. We expect from coming back very soon in this little paradise.

Tolles kleines Häuschen in herrlicher Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das kleine Häuschen mit eigenem Pool (wenn das Haus nebenan noch Mieter gehabt hätte, hätten wir teilen müssen) war für uns genau das richtige!

Die Aussicht über den Dächern von Nizza traumhaft, die Küche mit allem ausgestattet und die Zimmer oben mit Schlafsofa und Bett ausgestattet waren für uns total ausreichend (wir sind eine Familie mit 2 kleinen Kindern)
