Have now stayed twice at this lovely apartment and expect to make further reservations in the future. The location is superb, just a few stops by tram from the main railway station and the airport bus stops nearly outside. A lift takes you to the top floor and the apartment where the furniture and decoration is extremely tasteful and stylish. Just love the galley kitchen with on tap iced water and all facilities including condiments, beverages and all those little things you would rather not bother buying when self-catering. The lounge then opens onto the most gorgeous balcony which is perfect for sunbathing and enjoying breakfast, at night it’s even more stunning with amazing views over a glittering Nice and is a perfect way to end the day with a glass of wine. The two bedrooms were very comfortable as were the beds and pillows which can be hard in France.
The local neighbourhood is perfect; just outside the front door is a fab massive local fruit and veg market including fresh fish and oysters. (This became a flea market on Mondays which was a great surprise) There is also a covered artisan market across the road with bread, deli and meat including Italian as we are so close to the border. With a couple of supermarkets super close too, you have everything you could possibly want to self-cater on your doorstep. Eating out is easy and there is a lovely fish restaurant a two minute walk from the apartment that I would recommend. The tram stops less than a five minute walk away that takes you to the old town in about ten minutes. Walk to the seafront and you can catch the local buses to most villages. Would recommend going to St Paul de Vence (artist village), Cagnes en haut (visit the castle), and Eze (cactus garden and exquisite views!) as a must. Then take the train to Monaco and Menton (old town and lemon groves) plus don’t miss Beaulieu which you can take a train to and visit the Villa and gardens Ephrussi Rothschild which is seriously beautiful. As for Nice I love the old town especially the flower market which sells antiques on a Monday. Eat seafood down by the harbour including fish soup (bouillabaisse). If you get the chance do see the Russian church behind the railway station.
For a perfect break in Nice this lovely apartment couldn’t be better located and now wouldn’t stay anywhere else. Brigitte the owner couldn’t be more helpful in making us feel at home, she was an excellent host and an absolute delight and really made our holidays special.
