A lovely apartment in old town. I wouldn’t stay in any other area.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for the four of us, but could have slept one or two more on the sofa. Lovely apartment with lots of charm and in a great location!

Property was lovely. We enjoy apartments in the old town and this is another we would recommend.

  • 4 of 5

Whilst we enjoy going out in the old town to eat , therefore don't do a lot of cooking in the apartment , it is lovely to be able to enjoy a leisurely breakfast after purchasing the fresh bread, fruit and cheese from the market or locally from bakeries. Local transport is very affordable and we took the train to Monaco and the bus to St. Paul de Vance. Overall a very enjoyable stay and would recommend this central apartment in the old town.

Spacious and charming

  • 5 of 5

Loved the charm of this rental. It was very spacious for the 5 adults. Detailed information left for renters on table. Be sure to read it over when you arrive. It has helpful hints. Rommelyn was very helpful guiding us to the apartment and to a local restaurant. Could have used more toilet paper as we were running very low. Location was great. Right down in the mix of things. Would definitely stay again.

Lovely! and soo convenient.

  • 4 of 5

Hi Simon,

We just loved our stay at your place. It was wonderful..

The location was so convenient for my sisters who hadn't been in Europe in at least 25 years.

They could step out the door to get anything or go anywhere.

We had some noise issues but that is expected in old town and wasn't much bother.

Hope to come back again soon and stay there again.

Not so good.

  • 3 of 5

Located very good in the heart of the old town, but inspite of this not very noisy. The apartment is an older renovation and not on an up to date-level. The kitchen is not really well equipped. There are no curtains for day-use, so You have to close the shutters (dark) or everyone from the other side of the street has a free look. The arrangement of the apartment does not show an arrangement. The technique facilities were ok, only the dishwasher (not located in the kitchen) was not fixed and wanted to tip over, when it was opened.
