Olaf and Joelle are wonderfully kind and friendly hosts. Their hospitality was outstanding. The apartment is exactly as described and had all we could possibly require. We spent many hours on the lovely terrace, which is a quite a sun trap. The fresh grapefruits, lemons and mandarins were such a treat.

We prefer to walk around the city and to the Promenade, but the buses are nearby, frequent, relatively inexpensive and provide access to many parts of the city and Cote D'Azur.

During our stay we were treated to Olaf's coffee - seriously the best I have ever tasted.

Thank you, Olaf and Joelle. We had a lovely holiday!

Great stay at this Nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

Me and my partner had such a lovely time staying at Olaf and Joelle's apartment. They were really accommodating to us making sure we had everything we need. Olaf's coffee was great to try also! The apartment itself is lovely and so spacious on the ground floor of their beautiful building. It was nice to have a bit more space, having been staying in studio apartments at our previous destinations. The location is away from the tourist area which we liked and it is close enough to the bus station if you prefer transport instead of walking into the main centre. I would definitely recommend staying at this apartment as we had a great time.

top und familiär

  • 5 of 5

Schon der erste Kontakt mit Herr Draeger kam sofort und ohne Probleme nach der Buchung zustande. Die Ferienwohnung erwies sich als Glücksgriff- sie war Top und mit allem ausgestattet was man so braucht. Herr Dreager stellte uns eine verkehrsgünstige Anreiseroute zur Verfügung. Außerdem gab er hilfreiche Tipps für Strand und Besichtigungen. Wir waren rundum zufrieden.

P.S.: Nochmals vielen Dank für den guten Kaffee am Morgen :)

We stayed here for 2 weeks and really rated the location of the house. The beach, shops, restaurants, trams and buses are all within walking distances. If you are looking for somewhere central to stay in Nice but without all the noise from the crowd, this is the place for you.

The house was very clean and very well equipped with everything one would need for a perfect stay . We cooked most days in the well equipped kitchen and shops and markets all within walking distance.

Olaf and Joelle were wonderful hosts and couldn't do enough for us and Olaf makes a great cup of coffee.

We had a great time staying here and would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to friends and family.We'll be back!!

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot! We'd be delighted to see you again, even if it's just for a cup of coffee! And here is Colin's review in gaeilge: D'fhanamar anseo ar feadh coicíse, agus thaitin sé go mór linn ar fad. Ní raibh i gceist ach siúlóid ghearr chuig an trá, an siopaí, bialainn, trammanaí agus na busanna. Má tá áit sona suain á lorg agat i lár Nice, is é seo an áit atá uait! Tá an teach féin breá ghlan agus é gléasta go h-árd caighdeáin. Níl rud ar bith in easnamh ann. Rinneamar ár cócaireacht féin beagnach chuile lá. Thug Olaf agus Joelle dídean thar bharr dúinn agus thug siad chuile chabhair dúinn le linn ár dtréibhse. Déanann Olaf cafe den scoth! Bhí an-time againn leo agus ní bheidh aon mhoill orainn árd-mholadh a scaipeadh lenár gcáirde is clann. Ad tnúth go mór leis an gcéad turas eile! Slán go fóill

Schöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei erholsame Wochen in der Wohnung von Fam. Draeger vebracht. Die schöne Altbauwohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht, und mit einem gelungenen Mix aus Alt und Neu eingerichtet. Die Küche ist komplett ausgestattet,sodass wir täglich gekocht haben. Auf der grossen Terasse kann man in der Sonne frühstücken, oder einfach im Liegestuhl ausruhen. Von der Wohnung kann man gut zu Fuss in die Altstadt oder zum Strand gehen. Die Bushaltestelle ist um die Ecke, und bis zur Strassenbahn ist es auch nicht weit. Die Wohnung liegt in einem Wohngebiet, aber Restaurants, Supermarkt, und Geschäfte sind in unmittelbarer Nähe und schnell zu Fuss erreichbar. Ebenso der täglich stattfindende Markt.

Die Familie Draeger waren freundliche, unkomplizierte und aufmerksame Gastgeber. Immer einen guten Ausflugs- oder Restauranttipp parat. Nicht zu vergessen der super Kaffee, und die leckeren Pampelmusen aus dem Garten. Die Wohnung ist ein gute Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die Umgebung und natürlich für Nizza selbst, und absolut empfehlenswert.

Car: recommended

The flat is close to the centre of Nice; you can easy walk there or take the tram. The most famous areas are ‘la Promenade des Anglais’ and the old town (‘la Vieille Ville’) which are both less than 3 km away from the house. While renting a car is not necessary if you plan to stay in Nice, we believe that the countryside and the Medieval perched villages of Eze, Gourdon or Saint-Paul de Vence for example are well-worth a visit too and for those, renting a car is recommended.

You will be able of course to enjoy all sorts of water sports here. If you’d rather like less popular destinations, then you may want to consider the breath-taking walks around Cap d’Antibes, St Jean Cap Ferrat or in the Esterel (near Cannes).

Nice is located at the foothills of the Alps. The ‘col de la Bonnette’ which reaches a maximum altitude of 2715m and is one of Europe's highest pass roads. The closest ski resort is Gréolières Les Neiges, about 60 km to drive from the house. It's a great location for day return trips. The more serious ski resorts of Isola 2000, Valberg or Limone are all less than 2 hours away from our home. Italy is less than half-an-hour away.

Winter is certainly of appeal. During sunny days, the temperature can sometimes reach 18 degrees. If you plan on visiting us in January, February, or even in March, you will be able also to enjoy the mandarins, lemons and grapefruits which will then be ripe and ready-to-eat!

We provide our guests with guides in French, English and German so that they can best plan their holidays.
