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!

Our kichen has all the modern applicances and including washer/washing machine for your clothes, if you are staying longer than a week or more. This is at no extra cost to you. We hope to see you all again very soon! Warm South of France regards Richard & Family

Excellent location - excellent ownership

  • 5 of 5

We are a retired Canadian couple that have made our way across Western Europe over the winter months. The place is exactly like the description. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this location to others. We stayed for three weeks. It is a tad small so we’d only recommend for two people. You do not require a vehicle at all.

This apartment is in such an excellent location – right downtown and very close to beach and pedestrian district. A short walk will get you to old town for some excellent shopping opportunities. There are restaurants everywhere and far too numerous to count. The owner was excellent and provided all necessary information in a well-organized package. He (and his local contact) was available through the entire subletting.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Thank you for our great review. The apartment is suitable for families, couples, children and the elderly. The lift is a great asset, but we are only situated on the 2nd Floor of the building, so only a short distance up to the apartment. All our guests are very important to us, and we want to make them all feel welcome. Kind Regards Richard & family :) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nous sommes un couple canadien à la retraite qui ont fait notre chemin à travers l'Europe de l'Ouest au cours des mois d'hiver. L'endroit est exactement comme la description. Nous avons apprécié notre séjour et nous recommandons cet endroit à d'autres. Nous y avons passé trois weeks.You ne nécessitent pas un véhicule du tout. Cet appartement est dans un tel excellent emplacement - en plein centre ville et très proche de la plage et du quartier piétonnier. Une courte promenade vous mènera à la vieille ville pour quelques excellentes possibilités de shopping. Il ya des restaurants partout et beaucoup trop nombreux pour les compter. Le propriétaire était excellent et fourni toutes les informations nécessaires dans un ensemble bien organisé. Il (et son contact local) était disponible à travers toute la sous-location. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wir sind ein pensionierter kanadischen Paar, das uns auf den Weg in Westeuropa in den Wintermonaten haben. Der Ort ist genau wie die Beschreibung. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt und kann dieses Hotel weiterempfehlen. Wir waren für drei weeks.You nicht über ein Fahrzeug benötigen überhaupt. Diese Wohnung befindet sich in einem so ausgezeichneten Lage - direkt im Stadtzentrum und in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Strand und Fußgängerzone. Ein kurzer Spaziergang führt Sie in die Altstadt zu bekommen für einige hervorragende Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Es gibt Restaurants überall und zu zahlreich, um zu zählen. Der Besitzer war ausgezeichnet und bot alle notwendigen Informationen in einem gut organisierten Paket. Er (und seine Ansprechpartner vor Ort) war durch den gesamten Untervermietung zur Verfügung. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Perfect for exploring Nice

  • 5 of 5

The perfect apartment for exploring Nice and the surrounding area, the beach and old town. Richard's communication was first class with everything as per description and the additional information sent about places to visit, restaurants and local area was a great help and made for a fabulous 4 days in Nice, the weather could not have been better too. Although we did hire a car this is not necessary as the apartment is a short bus ride from the airport. We will be back Richard and would have no hesitation in recommending your apartment. Until the next visit, Simon and Jayne

замечательный семейный отдых

  • 5 of 5

Очень хорошие апартаменты. Довольны всем: местоположение, состояние и удобства- на твердую пятерку (единственный маленький минус для нас -отсутствие кофеварки, но была "турка"). Приятно удивило наличие в апартаментах всех необходимых хозяйственных принадлежностей и бытовой химии. Уютная домашняя обстановка: совершенно чудный мозаичный стол и под стать ему кованые стулья.

Отдельное Спасибо Ричарду за отзывчивость.

С удовольствием еще неоднократно посетили бы великолепную Ниццу, остановившись у Ричарда!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for such a lovely review. We are so close to the beach, lovely friendly restaurants and public transport. The Cafe downstairs does fantastic French coffee and croissants as well. We love the lift in this building as makes it easier for our bags, especially when we are feeling lazy, as its only on the 2nd floor! The apartment has very comfortable beds, this is important as I'm very fussy about having a good bed! We have tried to have all modern conveniences inside the apartment, such as a washing machine etc., just makes life a little easier. A hotel can't offer this! We have many return guests, which makes this so lovely for us. Your time with us is very important, so we want to get it right. A Bientot 2015!!! Richard & Family

Perfect Location & Perfect Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We work very hard and our leisure time is very important to us as a family.

This apartment is perfect for the four of us. It can also accommodate five if you ask Richard. It was clean, quiet, and the location was great, just a stone’s throw away from the beach front! We have now been coming here for over four years and love it. We wouldn’t stay anywhere else really.

The price is good and not expensive as compared to other places that we have stayed in before. The kids love the beach and the friendly restaurants and shops close by. We have also stayed here as a couple for a romantic getaway and for a bit of peace and quiet. There is something for everyone!

The Wi-Fi in the apartment is fast and we use this to make our friends and family jealous back home via Skype. It’s better than using the expensive internet cafes, also its more private and relaxing, as you can get a great coffee downstairs and a croissant to take back up to the apartment with you, whilst you use the internet to explore your next day’s adventures!

Richard is very helpful and takes pride in all his hard work to make the guest feel at home. That’s rare these days. We don’t feel like cash cows, like some owners make you feel. We have booked for 2015 August. We can’t wait to come back.

The only downside is that we have to go home. Boo!

A huge thank you to Richard and his family for making our stays so special each time. x

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this great apartment , which is ideally located just 2 minutes from the beach. We loved the local amenities in particular the bakery across the road and the Mexican food and wine bar just along the road. The mojitos were delicious! Exploring Nice is easy either by foot or using the trams and trains. We visited a lovely sandy beach on the other side of Castle Hill which was a 10 minute train ride away. Our daughters both enjoyed swimming and splashing in the beautiful green/blue sea.

The apartment was very clean, with flowers on arrival. The children slept on the sofa beds in the lounge area, and there was plenty of space to hide our suitcases and personal belongings in the large wardrobes in the bedroom.

Richard and Kim were very helpful and answered our questions. Richard was particularly helpful and prompt with his e-mails which we appreciated. Looking to book again next year as we loved our first Nice experience.

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.
