Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Rose and Charles.

We left it too late to send review on H/A page so hope you can post it for us?

We spent a great week in this lovely apartment in June. We love our stay there and everything was as advertised and even better. The kitchen is well equipped and although small it is well organized to make cooking easy.

The beds were very comfortable and the air con which had a sleep mode so was quiet when on at night.The flat is very central and close to the tram station and bus stops. We travelled to Antibes ,Monaco,Villefranche,and St Paul and are glad we did.The restaurants Rose recommended were first class.

We highly recommend this apartment and will certainly return in the near future.We happily give it 5 ** Thank you Rose and Charles

Wonderful Nice vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment in August, it is in the middle of the action, restaurants, cafes, shops however it is extremely quiet ,relaxing and comfortable . It si also easy access to trains and buses. The bus Stop to go to Grasse and to Saint Paul de Vence is about 5 minutes walking from the apartment and the train station to go to Cannes and Monaco is about 15 minutes by foot.

The Owners Rose and Charles are amazing host. They’re very kind and helpful, we arrived early in the morning and they accommodated us to get access to the apartment.

Thank you so much Rose and hope to go to the apartment again!

The Shamoun’s family.

Beautiful apartment, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week in this apartment, and we loved it! It is stylish, clean, and spacious. It is perfectly located just off one of the main central streets, and yet thanks to the double glazing it is lovely and quiet at night. You can easily walk into the old town, where there are lots of restaurants, and within a few seconds you can access the designer shops. We couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Charming apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Nice and its surrounds.This apartment is ideally situated a few minutes to the beach and central to shopping,resturants ,five mins stroll to the lovely old town.The tram stop is 2 mins walk and where you can get to Nice train station(2 stops). The apartment is clean and well furnitured .The kitchen is small but well equipped with all you need included an Nespresso coffee machine. The bedrooms at the back of building are very quiet with comfortable beds and pillows and extra ones if needed.Rose and Charles were very helpful with the initial booking and kept in contact to insure we had a good stay.

Overall I recommend this apartment wholeheartly and will return for our next vacation

What a wonderful place to stay in Nice!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four just returned home after staying one week in Charles and Rose's beautiful apartment. Everything was exactly as advertised. Perfect location right above pedestrian-only street and unlimited cafes everywhere. Very short walk to the beach and the beach chairs and umbrellas are provided, which was very helpful. The cool air conditioning worked perfectly as well. Charles and Rose were so helpful leading up to our visit, making sure we knew everything necessary for a great Nice vacation. Lorna was very sweet and helpful as well. She met us within minutes of our arrival made sure we felt right at home. This is the place to stay when visiting Nice! Thank you Charles and Rose and Lorna.

Nice central modern air conditioned clean and spacious

  • 5 of 5

I have written a few reviews and like to give a balanced and accurate reflection of what to expect . Having visited Nice with my wife a year ago we stayed at a hotel, but this time we were taking our daughter and decided that an apartment would be better suited to our needs.

Picking the apartment for location was easier as I had an idea where it was..literally on rue massena which is full of restaurants,2 mins from the beach. 20 mins from the Train station and 20mins away from the 100 bus stop at the harbour which takes you to villa franche and monte Carlos. So great location..

The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a 5 floor building, but serviced with an elevator if stairs are not your thing.It benefits of a good view of rue Massena at the front, however at the back the view is of the back of other flats which is to be expected due to central location.However there is a little surprise with the sun terrace which has loungers, and we used a lot having breakfast or lunch or just to relax with a glass of wine.

Inside the apartment was very spacious , with both bedrooms and living area having separate air conditioning units which were easy to use.

Note there were duvets and extra blankets if required

We only used the toaster and microwave but there was everything required to cook in the kitchen.

Wifi was good ( very long password)

Internet tv, DVD player, selection of books,radio and CD player..

Even has mats and parasols for the beach which is stony but beautiful.

Basically the apartment was lovely and had everthing you would need.

Booking the apartment was easy and Charles and rose answer emails very promptly which is re assuring .

And finally, the lovely lady who came to meet us (Lorna)and give us our keys was so welcoming and helpful with locations of supermarkets etc.

To summarise , our experience of this apartment was all positive..

Coffee and Cakes in the best location in Nice .

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a fabulous week in this apartment in the best location in Nice.

My wife and two teenager daughters could not recommend a better place to stay while in Nice. We were greeted by the host Lorna together with a four page list (provided by the owners) about where to visit/places to eat and a detailed information pack about how to get around Nice via Trains and bus.The restaurants on the list were excellent and we had no need for a guide book. The apartment itself was perfect for us as everything was within a short walk. Every morning we strolled to the promenade to swim followed by a coffee and cake 50 meters from the front door of the apartment and sat people watching as we relaxed sipping our coffee and amazing cakes. The train station is only a 10 min walk and links you to so many places. we traveled three times by train but we all loved returning to our street in Nice.The apartment was comfortable with air con and on the 3rd floor away from the Hussle and bustle of the street below. When i return to Nice this is the place to stay and for a potential visitor you cannot go wrong staying here if you want to get the perfect Nice experience in a really nice apartment. Finally the power shower in the bathroom deserves a 10/10.

Ideally situated for exploring Nice and surrounding tourist attractions, a two minute walk will bring you to the beach and Promade des Anglaise. Enjoy the wonderful sea

views here while relaxing on the famous 'blue chairs'. The famous Negresco Hotel with its Art Deco collection is a short distance away

The Old Town is 5 minute walk from the apartment with its many restaurants, churches and historic buildings. In Coeur Salaya you can buy flowers,fresh fish,fruit and vegetables,cheeses and exotic spices at the country markets which operated here daily except on Monday when there is an antiques market.

The Château overlooks the Old City and the Bay de Anges all the way across to the airport. The views are magnificent and more than justify the steep climb. There is a lift to the top if you wish and the small tourist train you can get on the Prom will also bring you there. The Château also has Roman ruins.

Nice is ideal for museum and art lovers with Musee des Beaux Arts, the Museum of Modern Art and the Opera House all within walking distance. A short bus trip will take you to Cimiez where you can visit the Mattise Museum, the Roman Ruins and the Monastery and gardens. This is a must.

Nearby attractions also include the” must do” trip to Monaco,the exotic gardens at Eze , with its magnificent view across Cap Ferrat and Nice (must see), the perched village of of St Paul de Vence, which is famous for its art galleries and the nearby Meaght Foundation, Antibes and, of course the film festival centre at Cannes. Also Cagnes-Sur Mare where you can visit the Renoir Museum and Garden(check opening times). The gardens at the Villa de Rothschild,Cap Ferrat are 20 minutes by bus and are superb as are the sea views on the way there.

Bus stops for all these areas are between 2 to10 mins walk from apartment and cost €1.50 each way, including to Monaco and to the ski slopes. All transport within Nice by bus or by tram costs €1.50 Trains from Nice Central station cost a little more but are inexpensive. Nice Central is a 10 minute walk from the apartment. A tram from nearby Place Massena will also take you there.
