About The Owner

I am self employed working in London property market.

I also work as Volunteer Independent Visitor to children in the care of the Local Authority.

I have loved France all my adult life and I am slowly trying to learn french.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

Why The Owner chose Nice

I wanted a property that made you feel that you were immediately on holiday, and with it's direct west facing views over the Port of Nice, it's a wonderful place to relax in in the evening and watch the sun set from the balcony.

What makes this apartment unique

As it's on the top 6th floor, it offers great views of the port, sea and mountains behind NIce, and even on a bad weather day it feels like you're on holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The air conditioning in the bedrooms was fabulous. Having stayed in the area 3 times before we know what it is like trying to sleep without any a.c. The fabric and furnishing in the flat was excellent, everything that could be required was there. The balcony was the perfect place to chill out after a day in the hot sun, offering a fantastic vista of the ever changing port.We enjoyed the stay in your apartment very much !

Nice Port Penthouse stay May 2017

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment is perfect for exploring nice and a good base too if visiting the Monaco Grand Prix. The view from the balcony is beautiful and breakfast there in the morning is a great start to the day! The apartment overall was excellent and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. The only negative I would say would be the £260 we had to pay upon arrival which was for cleaning the apartment and towels which I thought was very excessive. That aside, the holiday was absolutely brilliant.

Owner's Response: The Local Agents Fee of £150 is for providing the following services: - Liaising with incoming customers and conducting a meet & greet at the apartment to familiarise themselves with everything they need to know; - Making up the beds and providing one set of bed linen/towels for each guest and two sets of keys; - Conducting an inventory check on departure day and liaising with the owner to report any problems and authorise the Damage Deposit return; - Stripping the beds and taking the bed linen and towels to the launderette for cleaning; - Conducting a final clean of the apartment. My terms and conditions detail the following: Any additional changes of linen / cleaning can be purchased by you by separate negotiation between yourself and my local agent. An additional 50 Euros will be payable in cash for late arrivals between 8pm – 11pm, and 100 Euros after 11pm. The £260 to which John refers included the £150 Local Agents fee, (which at the time of his booking was taken locally in Euros) and his late arrival fee of 100 Euros as he arrived after 11 pm.

Comfortable stay with a gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment met all our needs, and the view made it unique! We found the apartment to be very clean and comfortable. There were plenty of dishes and kitchen tools. Lots of great restaurants, bakeries, and groceries nearby. Le Local and Le Marlin were two of our favorite restaurants. The view from the apartment balcony was spectacular, both during the day and at night. We used Uber to and from the airport, which we found to be both economical and fast.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review and I'm very happy that you enjoyed the balcony views as much as I do when I go there. I have to agree that UBER is a very cheap and quick way of getting from the airport to the apartment in the Port.... for now. At the end of 2017 the new East West tramline should be up and running, where you will be able to catch a tram direct from the airport to the apartment in half an hour - watch this space.

An Apartment with a Changing View & in a Vibrant Area

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely time late October in the Nice apartment looking over the Old Port; we were not ready to go home which is always a good sign that you are comfortable in your surroundings. The apartment has a lovely outlook both in day when you look out over the activity in the Port and then the evening when the lights on Castle Hill opposite flicker as the evening breeze rustles the foliage on the hillside.

The apartment is exquisite and in a vibrant area, it is on the top floor of a well maintained block, when the three balcony doors are closed you hear very little outside noise. The living room is very airy and overlooks the Port; the kitchen area takes up very little room but is big enough to cook an interesting meal. The beauty of the apartment over an Hotel is that you can self cater and in the Port area there quite a few excellent shops in the Italian quarter. Personally my favourite shop was "Charcuterie Italienne" on the Rue Bonaparte. Favourite restaurant (yes we did eat out as well) was "La Flara", the elderly gentleman can certainly cook an excellent steak in the pizza oven and I loved the pizza straws with my pastis. The neighbourhood is superb for food shopping, but it would be perhaps difficult to describe as taste is so personal, not everyone goes on holiday to cook but then that is why I sometimes like to self cater, if you admire fresh local produce you just want to move to the next logical step.

We would like to visit the area again and see how the new Metro Tram line (Airport to Port) when it opens in 2018. The work opposite at the moment is fascinating and can only enhance the area in the future.

Owner's Response: I agree that the views from the lounge and balcony are quite special. I feel as though I'm on holiday from the moment I arrive, irrespective of the time of year. The new tram will run directly from the airport to the port (just outside the apartment) from 2018, but in the meantime, I've discovered that getting an Uber cab from the airport is quick and half the price of a standard taxi, so it makes a lot of sense to do that instead of going by bus.

everything we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

This was everything we had expected and more. The photos are wonderful, but don't do justice to the stunning panorama of the Port, and North to the mountains. We could have spent all our time on the balcony, but coming all the way to South of France, we explored the towns along the Med by bus... so very cheap! We were a bit worried when we saw the upheaval at the quayside to provide for the new tram, fear not there is no noise to be heard! From the minute we were welcomed by the charming Laure, we realised we had arrived somewhere special. Can't wait to visit again, first time using Uber and found them a wonderful slick service to and from airport!

Owner's Response: I have also used 'Uber' for my airport transfer the last two times I visited the apartment. It was extremely efficient and cost about 20 Euros each way and takes about 30 minutes max. While the tram works are in progress (which will be until the end of 2018) I highly recommend using UBER for your airport transfer. It might be a bit more than 20Euros if there are more than two people in the car, but the bus costs 6 Euros each, so for the extra convenience, it really is worth it, and it's quicker too. At the end of 2018, the new East/West tramline will run from the Airport directly to the Port and take half an hour.

Great apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

I visited Nice with a group of 4 friends so we chose an apartment for the number of beds. This apartment was perfect for us and had everything we needed.

We were met by the local agent who made us very welcome and explained everything about the apartment.

The apartment itself was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was great having the additional en-suite and toilet and the main bathroom was huge which was great especially for a group of girls. It's in a perfect location to get around, has some great places to eat and drink on the doorstep and the views from the balconies were amazing.

The essential information pack contained all the details we needed and the restaurant recommendations were spot on.

We would definitely recommend it and hope to come back again soon.

Great place to stay in Nice

The owner seems to really care about this apartment and his guest's experience. Every detail had been considered. We enjoyed the Port view and all of the amenities of the apartment.

Owner's Response: When I bought this apartment in 2010, I was immediately taken by the superb view directly over Nice port, the sea, and the mountains behind the City. You feel like you are on holiday as soon as you arrive. I'm so glad everyone else appreciates it like I do when I visit.

Nice / Port of Nice

Nice is a wonderful city with everything you could hope for - spectacular scenery, museums and galleries, history, great architecture, food, beaches and glamour.

Nice port is a 5 minute walk into the bustling Old Town. It is a maze of little shops and restaurants all leading down to the waterfront where you can eat out and admire the yachts and luxury cruisers.

A new tramline, due to open in 2018 will connect the port to the airport.
