Great little studio

  • 5 of 5

Although quite small the studio had everything we needed. Layout and amenities were as described. On arrival, fresh and clean. Francesca was a lovely host.

The studio is close and convenient to the beach and the activities around Old Nice. Everything accessible including public transport.

Our short stay was fantastic.

Great vacation at an awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Francesca's apartment for 5 nights in early June. The apartment is furnished and has all the necessary amenities for those who want to spend longer periods of time. The kitchen has all the necessary utensils, pots and pans, plates, cups, glasses, and some electric appliances such as coffee maker and toaster. This allows for meals preparation, like a quick breakfast or even more elaborate dishes. The proximity to the farmers market (Cours Salleya) facilitates these cooking activities especially that the time of the year when we were in Niece it was when plenty of summer fruits were available (strawberries, raspberries, apricots), and fresh vegetables great for salads. When the farmers market is over, at around 1:00 pm the tables where the produce was exposed are replaced by the tables and chairs of the restaurants and cafés around the square. It is a very lively place and when we visited it coincided with the beginning of the UEFA Euro Cup, so the city was flooded with enthusiastic supporters who gave the place a great vibe.

The flat is also located just 5 minutes away from the famous Boulleverd d'Anglaise and the beach. The beach is a narrow strip along the promenade, with plenty of public places or private beaches that offer sun beds and other amenities. So, the proximity to the beach is an added bonus, as well as to the nearest tram station.

We enjoyed our stay in Niece very much, and the choice of our accommodation it contributed to the great experience. If we're going back to Niece, we'll definitely choose to stay at Francesca again.

Perfect small studio in the old town of Nice

  • 5 of 5

We with my wife visited Nice for 4 days and were quite satisfied from the property. It is recently fully renovated studio in the old town of Nice, close to everything there. I can recommend it to single and couple travelers for stay in Nice. The bed is a unfolding sofa, that is of good quality, comparable to a small double kingsize bed (maybe 140 cm/190 cm).

Francesca our host was very helpful with her proffessional approach to the guests, as she has sightseeng materials, maps and printed instructions for buses in the studio. She also provided us with advices for our stay, leaving coffee, jams, salt, oilive oil and other such small convenient things for our stay. Although Francesca does not live close to the studio, everything for our check in and check out was well organized without need to lose time for waiting.

Thank you for everything Francesca!

Великолепно / Great

  • 5 of 5

Оптимальное местоположение. Старый город. 2 минуты до городского пляжа. Тихое место. В то же время, в 100 метрах начинается бурная городская жизнь. Уютная студия со всеми необходимыми удобствами. Франческа очень дружелюбна и гостеприимна. Мы опоздали на час. Франческа терпеливо нас дождалась. Снабдила картами, справочными материалами, ковриками для пляжа и зонтиком. Мы остались очень довольны и благодарны Франческе. / The optimal location. Old city. 2 minutes to the beach. Quiet place. At the same time , in 100 meters begins diverse city life . Cozy studio with all the necessary comfort. Francesca is very friendly and welcoming . We were late for an hour. Francesca patiently waited for us . Francesca endows maps , reference materials , rugs and beach umbrella. We were very pleased and grateful to Francesca .

Séjour fantastique!

  • 5 of 5

Ce studio pratique, fonctionnel et très bien situé dans le Vieux Nice nous a permis un séjour mémorable ... trop court, bien sûr. De plus l'accueil chaleureux, les conseils judicieux de Francesca ont fait en sorte non seulement de faciliter, mais de rehausser positivement ces quelques jours. C'est avec grand plaisir que nous recommandons cet appartement pour tous ceux qui désirent découvrir cette belle ville.
