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 Le Port

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 !

Beautiful Penthouse, Phenomenal Location,. Plus a couple tips

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as described in the profile and the view/location couldn't have been better. It truly made our four nights in Nice special and we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Before booking, note that the owner states he processes your payment in British Pounds. If your bank charges foreign transaction fees, it can substantially effect the price. We paid an extra $100 USD in bank fees- $75 to process the payment, cleaning fee, & deposit and $25 when our deposit was refunded (promptly btw.)

The local property agent was kind and helpful. As a courtesy; it's very important that you arrive at the time you originally arranged. We drove in from Lyon and estimated that we'd arrive by 5-6 PM. However, because we decided to take a more scenic route (worth it); we didn't get to Nice until about 6:30.

The day before our reservation, the agent sent us an email asking that we text her 2 hours before our actual arrival. We attempted to do so but given the inconsistent Alpine cell/data coverage; the message didn't reach her. When we arrived in Nice around 6:30; we phoned to let her know we were about 45 minutes away due to traffic. While she was still able to meet us at the property before 8 to avoid the late arrival fee; it was clear that a 2 hour notice would've been appreciated.

Again, if you're looking for an exceptional property with spectacular views in a perfect location- this is the rental for you.

Awe-inspiring views in Nice!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the penthouse. Our flight was delayed coming in and Laure took great care of us. Checking in and out was a breeze, and we really appreciated the welcome bottle of wine with snacks (particularly after a delayed flight). The view from the penthouse is STUNNING! In addition to the view the location itself is really great. The marina is quiet and beautiful, giving you the full benefit of a central location without the noise and traffic of the hotel section of the Promenade des Anglais. There are a lot of restaurant choices nearby and Christopher provides a great summary of his recommendations. It's also near several antique shops and we had a lot of fun browsing through their wares. The only drawback was the size of the beds. They were comfortable but at 6' 3", my husband was a bit cramped. Overall, I highly recommend the apartment and had a wonderful time there.

Perfect to enjoy Nice with small kids

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family with 6-year old twins to enjoy Nice and surroundings. We spent a full week. The location was great for us with small kids-central, yet removed from the touristy part of Nice, great view that we enjoyed every morning and evening. It gave us a comfortable home to retreat to after full days exploryng Nice and its surroundings. Laure was very helpful to us as well. One day late in the evening we realizwd that we are locked out of the house because we forgot the keys, and Laure very graciously helped us with that. There are lots of restaurants and cafes in the building, as well as grocery stores and bakeries close by, which made logistics quite easy for us. Highly recommend this place.

Fabulous view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this apartment.As previously stated the view is amazing and is the biggest plus of this apt over many other rentals .We chose to stay and eat in rather than go out because sitting on the balcony beat the view from many restaurants. We ate out once at the Castel beach club which was very expensive but the food was excellent and the setting magical,we sunbathed here as well .Again a bit pricey but a great experience! We visited the Matisse museum and Museum of modern art both recommended. Nice has so much to offer and this apartment is in a great location to take advantage of this .

Owner's Response: Thank you Karen for submitting your review, and I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Nice and particularly the balcony views as much as I do when I go there. Having a glass of wine in the evening facing the setting sun is a great way to end the day, with the views of the port, sea and mountains behind Nice all visible is a special experience. I look forward to being able to offer the apartment to you and your friends again soon. Best wishes, Chris

Excellent apartment with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I spent five nights here and absolutely loved it. The views were stunning and so was the apartment.

The owner Chris was very helpful beforehand answering my numerous questions about the area!

I really cannot understand the poor review about the beds because we both slept incredibly well.

The weather whilst we were there was glorious so the air conditioning was well used. After a long day in the heat of the Cote d'Azure we were extremely grateful for the cool air of the apartment on our return.

The main purpose of our trip was to celebrate my son Robert's 18th Birthday with a supercar spotting holiday so much time was spent in Monaco. We were not disappointed.

I would thoroughly recommend booking activities with "Get your Guide". We used them twice - once for a full day Best of the Riviera minibus trip (in an air conditioned bus and excellent guide). A must if you haven't many days in the area. Also I booked my son an hour's drive in a Lamborghini Gallardo convertible. He mainly drove up in the hills in Monaco which he loved!

Food - in Nice we had two evening meals at Di Pieu which is on the beach front. A busy restaurant and you can't book but lovely pizza and pasta and huge portions. In Monaco we are in Tip Top twice - another Italian restaurant. Prices considering where we were were not too bad! La Tavernetta in Monaco old town was also very good.

We fully intend to come back to Nice and would definitely want to stay in the apartment again. It is very comfortable with excellent facilities and communication with the owner.

Many thanks indeed Chris.

Jenny and Robert, Warwickshire, England.

Owner's Response: Jenny - I'm delighted that you had such an enjoyable holiday and a comfortable stay in the apartment. Monaco is only a short distance along the coast from Nice port - I usually take the 15 minutes easy walk to Nice Riquier train station from where you can catch the train to Monaco in about 15 minutes. The advantage of this is that they go straight through the mountains rather than snaking along the coast road like the buses do. The alternative is to catch the 100 bus from outside the flat at Nice Port and that takes about 30 minutes direct to Monaco.

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.
