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.

Lovely stay in Richards apartment in Nice. It's in great location close to beach, restaurants, bars and supermarkets.

A month in Nice

  • 5 of 5

I spent a month in this well located apartment. It has everything you need to be comfortable for either a short or a long stay. The bedroom has plenty of storage and an extremely comfortable bed. It is easy access to transportation, the beach, and old. nice and most things you can walk to from there, I was on my own, and felt safe and secure in the apartment and building. I hope to return soon

Great location, building is well maintained. The apartment is well cared for and attractive.

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 nights in Richard's apartment which is a short walk from the Promenade Anglais. Surrounded by restaurants we enjoyed a wide variety of cuisine. Nice is a great place to stay and Richards apartment ticked all the boxes. Ten minutes to the station where we took the TGV to Monaco and Antibes. Buses are plentiful and the tourist information is close by on the Promenade. Highly Recommend.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Thank you so much for this great review. You are close to all transport links with very easy access to places like Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, frejus, Eze, Italy and even Corsica. You don’t even require a car! But if you do, there is parking very close to you. The restaurants on Rue de France are varied and good quality, without breaking the bank. Most restaurants here are terrace and street, with street music, acts and other street entertainment and culture. We look forward to seeing you again soon. A bientot Richard and family

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.
