Review #7229102 "Fantastic location and apartment"

Fantastic location and apartment just as described. Excellent directions from the airport and so easy to find. No car needed as public transport by bus or train is very reasonable. Great winter sun location and the Christmas market was excellent.

One word - Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment, clean and tidy, and excellent location. We went as a group of 4 and the accommodation was large enough for us. We all loved it and are already in the process of arranging a return journey. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Yes we work hard to keep it nice for all our guests. Our guests are very important to us, as your annual leave/vacation time is important. We get many guests with either families or couples, elderly or even wheel chair bound. Our kichen has all the modern applicances and including washer/washing machine for your clothes, if you are staying longer than a week or more. This is at no extra cost to you. We hope to see you all again very soon! Warm South of France regards Richard & Family

Our second visit – and we’ve booked again!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our first stay in this apartment in 2015 that we returned for another fortnight and now wouldn’t look anywhere else in Nice because it is so well positioned and so well appointed!

It is located in the first road back parallel to the Promenade des Anglais, so it's just a 3-minute walk to the sea front. It is a flat, 10/12-minute walk (mainly pedestrianised) to Place Massena in the heart of Nice. The next roads inland parallel to Rue de France are the bus routes in and out of the centre of Nice, so the apartment is superbly positioned for exploring the city and venturing further afield.

The apartment is very well appointed with a comfortable good size bed and very adequate wardrobe space. The shower room is a good size and smartly appointed.

The Kitchen ‘range’ along one wall of the lounge/dining area includes a 4-ring hob, a combo microwave/grill and a large fridge. We ate 'in' every evening, buying lovely meals and vegetables from the local shops and supermarkets, all within 400m.

The windows of this second floor apartment (with lift) look out on a side street. We have not been disturbed by any of the local restaurants or bars, but as this is a city centre location there will be some ‘noises off’ such as the traffic on the rue de France and the nightly refuse collection around 11pm!

The owner, who is English and is based in the UK, is extremely helpful and provides very detailed guidance notes on the apartment itself, the local shops and restaurants and exploring Nice and its surrounding countryside. His local agent speaks excellent English and is available by phone for any queries

We so love this apartment that we’ve already booked our next stay!

We stayed in Richards apartment for the second time in January of this year. We loved the apartment the first time around and could not wait to return. Richard makes every contact count to take the stress away from booking a holiday. The apartment is ideally located and has all the items that you need for a base perfect for exploring Nice. We will return!

Excellent Location and Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to find this wonderful spot. The apartment is comfortable, perfectly located and very secure. The other residents in the building are friendly and one feels as though they are at home. Richard, the host, is kind and will provide you with all the information that you will need to fully enjoy Nice and make your stay from arrival turnkey. I would choose to stay here again and will if I have the privilege to visit Nice again! Cheers!!

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Thank you for this lovely review. The location is great only 10 mins from the airport and just off the beach, but without the noise from the cars. The shops and cafes near the apartment are fantastic with lots of lovely French patisseries and cafe culture. We can arrange parking as well with our contact. Hope to see you again soon. Kind Regards, Richard, Kim, Ruby, Zachary, Dogs and cat :)

Extremely convenient location in Nice!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment in Nice was so conveniently located! An easy walk from the train station, easy walk to the Old Town, quick walk to the beach -- loved it! The apartment is small (we had three adults and that really is the max) but had everything we needed. We are not light sleepers so the noise in the street below did not bother us. However, for a light sleeper you may need to close up the window and use the air conditioning instead because there was a lot of street noise. Richard was kind and quickly answered any questions we had. Richard included suggestions of things to do while in Nice. We scheduled the cooking class with Rosa and had so much fun with her! This was our first VRBO experience and everything went smoothly. (Paypal was a bit slow at returning our damage deposit, but we did get it.) Our timing in Nice was unfortunate due to the tragedy -- our hearts go out to all of the victims' families and people of Nice -- we look forward to visiting this city again in a happier time and will contact Richard for use of his lovely apartment.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Re: Thank you for staying with us Thank you for your lovely review.The apartment in Nice is so conveniently located! An easy walk from the train station, easy walk to the Old Town, and beach. We get many families stay of 4, and 5 by arrangement, usually a baby or small child. The apartment is situated off a quiet side street, as Nice is a city by the sea, and can be noisey at night, espeacillly if you have experienced a stay in the old town. Our guests and their holiday time is important to us, as we appreciate maybe more than other owners, that time is a precious resource, so we thank you for always choosing to stay with us. We have many partner contacts for our guests to take advantage of, i.e cooking courses and cheap secure parking. Paypal can take some time to refund, but this is usually not a problem, and we will always intervene if there is an issue with bond refunds. Our hearts and prayers go out to all those families and friends whom suffered, life is back to normal, and security is even tighter. We have many new bookings and confidence is high. I know you have booked to come back soon, so see you all again soon. Bonne Holidays! Richard, Kim, Ruby and baby Zachary! :)

Just image yourself sipping a cold glass of Rose wine or drinking a fresh ground French Cafe, relaxing and watching the world go by? In this perfect cosmopolitan near beach front location. This much sort after fantastic central location, near a local french bakery on Nice's famous first old road, the Rue de France, situated in the 'Golden Quarter' (Carre D'or) in Nice. Literally a leisurely 1 minute walk to the sea front & beach. Situated on a quiet side street, but close to all the best restaurants, cafe culture, street entertainers, designer shopping boutiques (like Chanel, Armani, Karen Millen, and many more), famous museums (Matisse etc) and transport links. Le Carré d'Or, or 'Gold district' is the elegant section of the pedestrian zone of central Nice, which begins at the Promenade des Anglais and extends to the tree-lined Boulevard Victor Hugo. Look for street names like Paradis, Alfonse Karr or Longchamp in order to identify this chic quarter of Nice.The 'Gold District' is the Mayfair or Park Avenue of Nice,on the gorgeous French Riviera Coast.

Other Activities: Shopping, Festivals, Art Galleries, Architecture, Canoeing, Wildlife (inc outside Wolf Sanctuary watching), Photography, Restaurants and night-life.

Golf: See Owners Website for excellent Golf Courses nearby on the French Riviera!

Ski: Winter skiing & Snow boarding is easy; Isola 2000 is a large modern resort, very popular, with good lifts and well maintained runs for all abilities. It is 2,000 metres high and usually has good snow from before Xmas to March. It's about 1hr 30 minutes drive from Nice, or there is a ski-bus service from central Nice (10 minute walk from our apartment). Auron, Valberg, Greolieres, and a number of smaller resorts are lower altitude and hence have snow for a shorter time, they are about the same driving time from Nice. Limone in Italy is prettier and about the same size, it is about a 2 hour drive.
