Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful week at Aurelia and Franks loft. Frank gave us a warm welcome so that we had a pleasant stay right from the start. He took the time to answer all our questions (good places to eat, nearest grocery, ...) and was available via phone all the time. Thankfully we hadn't had much to ask. The loft is a cosy place with everything you will need. The furniture, the kitchen, the bathroom, the bed, ... without any flaw. The loft is perfectly located as well with everything just a few minutes away: the beach, nice restaurants, shopping, busses. Highly recommendable!

Frank and Aurelia

This advertiser has been with since 2013
Speaks french, english

We are a French American couple with three daughters. When we realized that would not be able to retire before 70 we decided to take action and put our future in our own hands. We spent a considerable amount of time considering several industries that fit our skill set and fit within the framework of our community. One day Aurelia came across this article about new holiday rentals. So we spent several months researching it and another two years finding the right property. Than we spent another six months buying and completely gut rehab'ing this fantastic flat next to the beach and right in the middle of the two best neighborhoods in Nice. We have now been renting the loft since November 2nd of 2012. After our first year we have only had 14 nights without guests and we love it. We have maintained our five star rating from the 30 reviews we have received from our guests. This experience could not be more rewarding. One year later and we finally fee comfortable enough to buy our own advertisement via Homeaway. So as of November 2013 we are here. We hope you and your family will give us the opportunity to earn your business. And, give us the opportunity to show you what everyone loves about our flat and location. We hope to see you soon.

Frank and Aurelia purchased this apartment in 2012

It took us two years of active searching to find this perfectly placed property. It really is the best location in town. We planned out and built an excellent product, as you can see in the pictures. Everything was built with the guest in mind, we have added amenities that just don't exist in any other property in the area. This flat was purposefully build with the holiday guest in mind. It's a trifecta, great flat, great location, and great hosts. Everything is brand new. The furniture, the appliance, everything is new. Through in the 4 meter high ceilings and large spaces and having everything just outside the front door and you will love it here too.

It is so hard to find a flat in this great of an area. Everything the Côte d'Azur has to offer is right here. But we also have added unique features like Apple TV, Air printing, TV with movies in your native language and a complete kitchen. Plus, you get to enjoy the most well thought out loft in the area. Give us a chance and send us an inquiry today.

Best location in the Côte d'Azur. Located directly between Carre'Or and Old town everything Nice has to offer is right outside the front door. In addition, the loft is located perfectly for excursions to neighbouring cities. Public transportation is under a minutes walk. Plus, there are several car rental agencies just in the neighbourhood. Also, bike and boat rental agencies very near by.
