I could not have imagined better hosts. Ralph and Karen were so attentive and made us feel so at home. They were always available with advice, suggestions, answers- anything and everything we could have needed. I felt like I was staying at a friend's home. The apartment was perfectly appointed and no detail was missed. I fully expect this to be my first stay of many!
Lovely Apt with a Gorgeous View!
This gem of an Apt. had all the comforts of home overlooking Nice and Cap d' Ferrat! We ubered over in a 10 min ride and were greeted by Jean, and made to feel right at home...He gave us a tour and explained appliances etc. All was clean, well laid out, updated, Wi-Fi, Satellite, Guide books, DVDs and quite a bit of pantry staples are provided. He pointed out the nearby Clubhouse and Pool, as a great nearby dining spot (great plus!) and also, the convenient Grocery Store and Pharmacy.
Due to back problems we easily Ubered our way around the area. It should be noted that the bus and train are excellent options and conveniently located. We were also provided daily car rental information by the owners. We made good use of the Hop On/Hop Off Nice bus which also extends to Ville Franche sur Mer. We purchased the two day pass for 25 Euros each (1 day pass = 22 Euros each) and saw an overview of Nice at a leisurely pace on one day and Ville Franche sur Mer on the next day. On Saturday, we booked a 4 hour private tour with Yvonne Erbe of Gate4Tours and decided to visit St Paul du Vence, the Matisse Chapel in Vence, and Tourettes-sur-Loupe in Provence. She made each stop extremely easy by dropping us off close in and meeting up with us after she parked. She was knowledgeable about the history and culture of the area and other spots in the Provence region and French Riviera. This tour was really a highlight! The owners have many restaurant recommendations and are very responsive...A special restaurant we highly enjoyed was Le Siecle on the Promenade des Anglais, where we shared the Chateaubriand grilled at tableside...we also really enjoyed a very fancy cocktail in the bar in the historic Hotel Negresco. One may only see the inside if you are a hotel guest or a patron of the restaurant or bar. Dont miss the famous chandelier or fancy dome which you can see on the way to the W.C.! Also, check out the Jazz venues in Nice or vintage shops! Loved our 5 nights here!
Beautiful apartment with a stunning view
My first impression upon arriving at Le Trésor de Nice was how beautiful the landscaping was before even entering the apartment. Upon arrival our greeter, Jean, was extremely helpful and gave us a full tour of the apartment and how everything worked. Before he left, he made sure to let us know that we could contact him with any questions we had about the apartment or getting around Nice (he and his wife live the building which is extremely helpful). The apartment has a large working kitchen, split bathroom, air conditioning, and two balconies with amazing views. Way beyond what we even expected (the photos online do not do the apartment justice). Every detail for a comfortable stay has been carefully thought out by Ralph and Karen. There is a wonderful restaurant on the property with lovely views and friendly owner, a market with all of the essentials as well a fantastic bakery and cafes within a short walking distance.
I wanted this to be a trip of a lifetime for my mother, my friends and myself. It far exceeded that. The only downside was having to leave. Nice has wonderful restaurants, markets, sites and everyone in the city was very gracious and helpful.
We all miss it already.
Great place to stay
We really enjoyed this apartment. It was very clean and every detail was well thought. Owner provided everything we needed. The view from this apartment is beautiful. We strongly recommend.
Fell in love with Nice & this view
Could not have asked for more. Ralph and Marlene make a great host team; communications, international travel support, flexibility when my flight was canceled due to the strike, everything. They made my experience an absolute pleasure. The unit is clean, inviting, and pleasant to spend time in. The W/D and updated kitchen make it ideal for extended stays. I loved the balcony and view for both breakfast and dusk. The view is absolutely stunning in the late afternoon light. Perfect place to have olives, cheese, and wine. If this unit is available snag it, you will love it.
Malcolm: thank you for your very kind review. Although you had a horrible experience getting to Nice [cancelled flight and 7 h overnight bus ride from Barcelona], we were able to adjust in part due to the SMS's between the 3 of us through your overnight bus trip to Nice - sometimes time zone differences help ;-).
Sounds like you really enjoyed the apartment, local facilities and the balcony/view. Hope you can visit us again in Nice or Paris. Thanks again - R&K
Wonderful apartment and phenomenal view
The apartment was larger than I anticipated. The view was the best we had spending three weeks in Europe. We had a car but you don't need it. We took local bus and train. The bus stop is convenient to the apartment as well as a grocery store, pharmacy and a nice place for pastry and cappuccino. We walked the coast to old nice from the apartment. Beautiful weather and a great time for us. Marlene and Jean are close by, speak English and very helpful. I would not hesitate to stay again. They have everything you need and even many English channels on the tv and lots of movies for days you decide to relax.
Michele: Glad you enjoyed the apartment and your stay in Nice. As you discovered, its very rare that you need a car since the bus and train service is so convenient.
That walk along the Promenade des Anglais is very pleasant and with all the beach clubs, you can always stop for a beverage of choice and snack or indeed rent a lounger and relax with the view and sound of the surf. Hope we see you again and thanks for kind comments. R&K
