The Secret House doesn't disappoint! Tucked behind another building in the heart of Nice Old Town it really is a secret house, although it has stunning and extensive views from the balcony over Nice. The house is over three floors with two good sized bedrooms, both en-suite and a lovely top floor kitchen/sitting room with doors out to the balcony. The décor is stylish and contemporary and the house is very well equipped. Our communications with Erica were excellent throughout and we thought the house was very good value and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to other travellers. We really felt that we were staying in authentic Nice, the house is very quiet yet you are just a short walk to the magnificent castle grounds and the old town. Monoprix supermarket is a short walk away as is the tram system and the Airport bus. We ate in the old town every night and there are loads of really good restaurants to choose from. We loved our stay!
We stayed first week in October. Weather was perfect. Sunny 23C pretty much everyday. The villa is lovely and the pool excellent. We were travelling with an 8 month old baby and Gaia was very accommodating with cot and high chair. We went for walks everyday. The pier opposite is lovely with nice bars and restaurants. It’s very quiet this time of year but that suited us perfectly. To the right less than a km up the road is a shop for basic amenities. To the left, you can walk for a few km you will come to la table d’orientation which is on a hill with some of the most spectacular views I’ve ever seen of the Riviera. Keep going to la pointe de l’aiguille and the town of theoule sur mer.
Highly recommend a car. We did day trips to Cannes, Antibes and Monaco. All great spots. Love the old French towns and had long lunches and people watched there. There is a massive shopping complex about 10km away close to Mandelieu la napoule (worth visiting the chateau there) for all self catering needs as well.
Overall a great holiday and will try get back there.
