Perfect location for beach and navigating Nice
This place is in a perfect location. Close to the beach, and walking distance to many restaurants, gelato, shops, and easy to walk to other areas of Nice other than old town. It does get warm if you go in the summer. Has air conditioning, but still gets hot in VRBO. Also, TV cable does not work if your wanting to watch any cable tv, as we wanted to watch the FIFA women’s tournament games and could not. Does get a little noisy at night, with the people who like to party until the wee hours of the morning. If you can handle the warmth, and the noise it’s a great place to be.
In the center of old town
This comfortable apartment is in an ideal location for old town, the seaside promenade, the flower market, trams and buses. Because it is in old town, there is a lot of night activity, and even though the windows are excellent, it is difficult to block all the noise. If you’re a very light sleeper, you might want ear plugs.
The furnishings in this apartment are both comfortable and charming. The washing machine has a very fast option that seemed to get our clothes plenty clean. We hung them on the line of the balcony, or in various places around the apartment and they dried quickly.
We were slow learners on using the front door of the building, but we finally learned that if you put in the code, then QUICKLY opened the door, it worked perfectly. I would happily stay in this apartment again.
Charming apartment, perfectly located
Arrival was painless, and Pam went out of her way to accommodate our arrival time. Although there was a bit of a problem that a repairperson was dealing with, Pam found a great solution so that there was no inconvenience at all. The location can't be beat, with the flower market and the ocean both only a few blocks away, and two small grocery stores around the corner. Plus, it's situated on the Palais du Justice square, which has several outdoor cafes, one of them providing live jazz. The decor is simply charming, spacious, and the balcony provided nice views and a place to sit with a glass of wine in the late afternoon. The picture in the listing shows the ferris wheel, but it is not there now. The living room and bedroom are very comfortable and good sized, and furnished with French country-style antiques, while the kitchen is easy to work in, and the appliances easy to operate. The TV also was easy to operate--not always the case in some apartments in Europe, and the limited channels were all in English. We enjoyed having access to some of the food products and coffee filters left behind by other guests, and contributed our own for the next guests to use. We would stay there again with no hesitation. Only one suggestion: to put a waste basket in the bathroom.
Well-appointed homely property in old town
This was lovely and comfortable; furnished in a homely way, not like the 'chic' furnishings of the agencies. Good to have two bathrooms for the three of us; a quiet flat above the noise of the city, with a useful, if narrow, balcony. Well equipped in all aspects.
It's rare to have a higher-floor flat with a lift in the old town (which is a lovely and convenient area to stay), if you find lots of stairs difficult, but appreciate the light, the view and the balcony once you are inside the flat.
Easy access arrangement with Mme Demacon, who was very helpful in all the essentials of settling in.
My only small criticism is that the 'rustic' crockery is now mostly getting rather chipped and fragile, and it might be good now to replace it all in one go!
Thank you for the review,
I am happy the apartment worked for you.
Regarding the crockery ...I will address this, asap.
Best location for Old Town, restaurants, bars, shopping!
