About Christine Gower

I have had the apartment for over ten years. Enjoy visiting Nice myself out of season mostly but love living in Canterbury, Kent.

I was born in London but moved South sixteen years ago and prefer being in the countryside.

Why Christine Gower chose Carre d'Or

You are in a perfect spot for exploring Nice. I always enjoy the buzz of the area but once inside the apartment it is lovely and quiet, a haven.

A fabulous apartment in the heart of Nice.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is on the top (5th) floor and there is a lift.

Inside the apartment is well finished and just as the pictures show it. The bedroom and bathroom are on an upper level accessed by stairs from the sitting room area.

The balcony overlooks Rue Massena which is a busy street of shops, restaurants and cafes. Although it is very busy late into the night once the balcony doors are shut you'd never know it.

The beach and the Cours Saleya market with its numerous bars and restaurants are a 10 minute stroll away. The Place Massena and tram stop are at the end of Rue Massena just 2 minutes away.

The owner has been very good in keeping in touch throughout the whole process and the local rep was there to meet us with the key when we arrived.

All in all a fabulous place to stay, we would definitely like to stay here again.

Nice apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It was in a great location of Nice - pedestrian only street in the center of town with tons of restaurants and shops. 5 min walk to the beach and 12-15 min to the train station. The apartment was adequate for our needs. AC was a huge bonus! The only bathroom is on the second level, so not very convenient if sleeping downstairs. No soap was provided in the bathroom, so had to use dish washing detergent from the kitchen the first night before we bought our own the next day. Maybe just an oversight and not a common thing. Other than that, we liked everything.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sabina for your positive review following your stay in my apartment last week. I do feel the accommodation is better suited to two persons as it only has the one bathroom. Normally if a third person stays its a family member or friend. I am sorry there was no soap in the bathroom I will get this addressed for future guests.

Super location

  • 5 of 5

The flat is two levels with a table/kitchen area. It was 5th floor with small lift. You do have to go up to the loft to go to the bathroom and bedroom so if stairs are a problem; note that. The flat is just a few blocks to the beach and a block to the square and Old town. The bed was comfy and foldout couch was as well. There are twofold outs so it could accommodate 6 people but would be tight as far as the over all space in the flat. Cute balcony but when the windows are closed super quite. Would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive feedback which is appreciated. Although the apartment could sleep six I only promote it for three, as I feel that is more comfortable. Plus as you said the bathroom is upstairs and through the bedroom so that would not suit everyone. I hope you do return in the future. Christine

Lovely apartment in central location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days in this lovely apartment it was just as described and even better than we were expecting. I was travelling with my 15 year old granddaughter and the apartment was perfect for us. The central location is brilliant as the beach, bus and tram stops, parks, shops and restaurants are all just a few minutes walk away.

The property was very clean and well maintained

We were welcomed by Claire and were able to drop our bags off earlier than the normal check in time. Communication from Christine was excellent throughout and she was very quick replying to queries.

My granddaughter appreciated the good wifi and the air con was most welcome as it was very hot during our stay.

We enjoyed being on the balcony watching the hustle and bustle on the pedestrianised street below and listening to the music from the cafes and restaurants and yet when we closed the door - complete silence..

Would certainly recommend and hope to return.

Fabulous property, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated in a very central location. Beach, restaurants and airport bus stop all within a five minute walk. Lovely clean top floor apartment, on two levels with everything you need close by. We will definitely be back, highly recommended.

Great Location with all the amenities you require.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is centrally located with a plethora of restaurants and cafes outside your door. a couple of supermarkets withs a couple of minutes walk one even sells GF products. Only a short walk to the flower market and the old town as are the railway station and bus stops for Monaco, Eze and Canne. Close to the beach and the promenade. TV with some english channels for when you have worn yourself out exploring the surrounding villages and need to put your feet up with a good WiFi connection. We will be back.
