Our Contact Rosa offers Nicoise cooking courses in her own home, using organic produce bought from the Cours Salya old town market which you purchase in the Morning with her. She will advise on the produce, whats in season and whats not. This market and wine cellar tour, along with nicoise cooking is fantastic and we can arrange this for you. We had a great time, especially sampling our efforts afterwards with several glasses or two, of Rose Bandol and Provencal Wines.

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.

One word - Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
Excellent apartment, clean and tidy, and excellent location. We went as a group of 4 and the accommodation was large enough for us. We all loved it and are already in the process of arranging a return journey. Highly recommended!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
I've set up my business nearly three years ago and not had a break until I found this Apartment in South of France, Nice is gorgeous, feeling a little bit of glamour and de-stressing was achieved. Apartment is set out to accommodate couples and small families, and caters for all. Lovely complex and views/area to die for - THANK YOU for allowing us to stay here. Will recommend and come again

Owner's Response: Dear Jason,

This is the sort of feedback, that makes it so worth while for us. Its my raison etre!

Your experience is key to us. We know that in these times of austerity, value, location and trust are key.

The atmosphere on the Rue de France is ideal families and just those who like to browse the posh and interesting shops, or just have a coffee or croissant in the morning.

We hope to see you and your family very soon.

Warm Regards

Richard & Family :)

Clean, comfortable, and great location.

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is just as my title states: clean, comfortable, and in a great location. Easy access to the beaches, area shops, cafes, and markets. My wife, son, and I couldn't have been happier with the apartment. Margareta was very helpful in pointing out area food markets and directions to trains etc. If you get a chance and like to shop for bargains hop on the Friday morning train to Ventimiglia. Just be prepared to be standing and packed amongst the old ladies seeking the same bargains. Sure, it was uncomfortable, but its part of the experience! I have a hard time find anything negative to say about the French Riviera. However, I did find the dog feces on the sidewalks to be a bit of a negative. Also, the amount of noise from people late night (after midnight) made it nearly impossible to sleep with the windows open. Even though the temperature was very comfortable (22-24c), a fan to circulate the air in the apartment would have been helpful because the A/C was not to be run for more than 2 hours at a time. Overall, we would stay again and my minor complaints stem from my personal tastes / desires. it may not be a problem for others.
Thank you Richard for opening your home to my family for our vacation.

Regards,
Darrell C.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for this good review. The market just over the border into Italy is great for bargains, let alone the great pizza and gorgeous coffee! The train can be busy, so we either go very early or go later in the day, as the market is on all day. The Maire has been clamping down on dog doo. If you go to Paris, this is very much worse, and is a local sport, dodging the dog doo. In Nice, this is very posh dog doo, so if you are lucky you may spot a few diamonds in the dog doo! Kidding apart, the Marie and police are dealing with this and issuing fines to these posh folk. They carry their dogs in handbags here! Honest! There is air-conditioning in the apartment and there is also an air fan within the cupboard, I will make this clearer in our welcome pack and thank you for raising this. The noise on the street after midnight is unusual, but the French have many celebrations at the weekends. Our windows are sound proof. We get many guests stay with us as they have said that the Old town is too noisy, loud and smelly for them. These guests have told us that our apartment is much quieter, as we are on a side street and away from the old town, but still near all the lovely French atmosphere, shops and restaurants etc. I'm personally a light sleeper and picked the apartment as it was quieter and off a quiet side street. Hope to see you back soon. Richard & Family

Ideal base for enjoying the best of Nice

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is in an ideal location, very near to the beach, Old Town and shops - the bakery opposite is a real bonus!
The property was clean and comfortable and contained everything we needed to enjoy our holiday.
The excellent information provided by Richard beforehand ensured that we had a trouble-free stay and many of his tips were really helpful in planning our days. The bus service is so cheap at one euro and fifty cents per journey and enabled us to visit all the places we had planned to travel to - my only advice about travelling to Monaco is to go by train. Though the journey is less picturesque, it is much quicker and far less crowded - it was like a cattle truck on the bus! I recommend Antibes and Eze - well worth a visit, as is a visit to the castle. We went up on the lift and walked down - lovely views.
All in all a lovely holiday, helped by the gorgeous weather and convenience of the apartment which we would certainly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review. Yes we work hard to keep it nice for our guests. Eze is lovely and highly recommended. We provide tourist information to make your stay just that little bit more speacil.

There is so much to see and do here, thats why we get many return guests each year.The weather and light here explains why so many artists and photographers such as Matisse and friends came here to paint.

The apartment is blessed with a central location close to all transport to these amazing places.

Gorgeous well located property.

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay hugely. Very handy for the beech and also for the town. Easy access to train to visit nearby Monte Carlo, Cannes and Juan les Pins. The flat is very well kept and nicely furnished. The luxury bathroom is a particularly strong feature. Café on the ground floor is excellent for the traditional French petit dejeuner. Also very accessible from Nice airport. Only a short bus ride to very near the front door.

Owner's Response: Many guests love our bathroom and the lift for easy access onto the second floor. This is also suitable for elderly persons or to just put your luggage in the lift. The apartment is large enough for 4 guests, 2 couples, or a family of 4, plus 5 if needed on request.
The super fast broadband recently installed, is a much appreciated addition by our guests as well.
We are happy that you had such a lovely stay with us. Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review. We hope to see you again soon. 2015 is starting to get very booked as well.
Warm Regards

A Beautiful Clean Apartment

  • 5 of 5
I am very pleased to say thank you to Richard and his family for making myself and my family of 4 very welcome in their apartment. Very clean and well maintained were top of my list along with the location which has easy access to all requirements needed. My family and I had an excellent time and would definitely stay there again.

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.
