About Christine Gower

I have had the apartment for over 12 years and live in Canterbury, Kent. I like to visit Nice but mostly during the winter months.

I was born in London but moved South seventeen 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.

Near the beach and the Old Town which is very popular with visitors.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has a great location within easy walking distance to many bars, shops and resturants. The train station is about 15 minutes by foot. The balcony, although small, is great for people watching on the street below. The 2 airconditioning units were a bonus as we had temperatures in the mid 20s. The apartment was well equipped.Claire was very helpful, especially with check out times. Great experience. Hope to return. Pat and Derek Wilson. Co. Down

Good location

  • 3 of 5

Good location & apartment ok for 2 people. Very low bed & settees were not overly comfortable as they were bed settees. The accommodation would not have been great for more that 2 people. Information given was good & great for exploring Nice & close to restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent review of my property. I do only advertise the apartment as being suitable for 2 persons and maximum 3. I plan to keep one sofa bed as if friends stay they do not want to share a double bed. However I will be replacing the other sofa bed in the near future which will then be more comfortable for sitting.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great for 2 people located right on the Rue Massena pedestrian street just a few blocks form the plaza and a few blocks from the beach. Lots of restaurants outside. Within in a 5-10 minute walks you are at the old town. Since the bed is upstairs it was nice to have AC in the unit. Check in was very easy. Would stay again.

We really liked the appartment, so centrally located & good views from the little balcony.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment lived up to expectations & the descriptions are very accurate. Some added touches enhanced the property - very good shower, good sized bathroom sink & nice flooring. Tea & coffee provided with a good supply of cutlery & tableware with a large table to eat comfortably. Plenty of local information provided - maps etc. Comfortable seating areas in the lounge. All quite spacious for two people. Only negative comment - the kitchen sink is in a very awkward position, not very accessible without getting backache! Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed staying at the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marion and Martin for your review, very much appreciated and so glad you enjoyed your stay. The kitchen sink is a little awkward but I think they were trying to make good use of the space when it was fitted. I do hope you come back to stay again in the future. regards Christine

Great location in centre of town and lovely balcony to sit out on.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the apartment and especially the location, used the balcony a lot to sit out on in the evenings. Nice welcome from Clare on arrival who gave us soon good tips on supermarkets and good walks etc. The apartment is fine for two but we would say no more, there is only one toilet and bathroom and the sofa beds in the lounge not ideal. The apartment could have been cleaner - very dirty glassware, bucket of water full of flies on the balcony and several drawers etc are stuffed full of old items - needs a good clear out! There’s a lack of a good kitchen knife for food prep and some of the towels have seen better days! The sofa beds in the lounge are uncomfortable as sofas! That said we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan for your review. I have taken on board your comments but glad that overall you enjoyed your stay. One sofa bed was broken recently by a guest and it has been bought to my attention so I will be replacing it soon. I am sorry about the glassware and bucket of water. I will mention this to Claire who is responsible for the cleaning. Likewise I will have a clear out of the drawers - they used to have a lot of useful information, maps etc - sounds like some items might be redundant now. I do only promote the apartment for two people, maybe three at a push. Thank you again for highlighting the above points.

Perfect location!!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location, walkable to almost everything. Great restaurants and food shops within a block or two. The bus system in Nice is easy to access and very affordable, so we were able to get to other places very easily. While we were hoping for warmer, sunnier weather, the apartment was cosy and filled all our needs. Great to look over the balcony and see the action on Rue Massena. Our host was very attentive and stayed in touch to make sure everything was working properly. Would definitely return to Nice, especially if it was a warmer forecast!! Thanks for a great two weeks.
