Perfect for our Family

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this apartment and had a wonderful time. Our teenagers loved the apartment and the neighborhood. The market just around the corner was fabulous. We would go and gather fresh fruit and croissants each morning and have breakfast on the balcony. The beach is just a minute away, the funky small shops of old town (and a plethora of restaurants) just a minute in the other direction. It was a most wonderfully convenient location. The apartment itself was well equipped (beach towels and plenty of nice pillows were a plus) The air conditioning was a treat after roasting at the beach for a couple of hours. The people we dealt with were friendly and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant and easy. The apartment was adorable and so comfortable we felt right at ease and relaxed as soon as we arrived.

Great location and great property manager

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this unit for one month while I was studying abroad. Pam was wonderful from the time I started communicating with her about the property all the way through the day we left. The place was in an excellent location. Centrally located in old town Nice and easily accessible for the the beach and the Promenade. It is close to parks for children and lots of wonderful restaurants. The view from the balcony was wonderful and my son and I enjoyed breakfast outside every morning. The size of Frescarra worked perfectly for my family (6 people). The market is located just below the unit. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for yourself and although the refrigerator is small it served our group of 6 just fine. There is also an elevator which eases any concerns you should have about being on a higher floor. The WiFi was a little spotty when you were not in the central room but it did not pose a significant problem. We had a couple of incidences where we were in need of assistance and Pam responded promptly and helped us with all of our issues/requests. If I were to travel to Nice again I would not hesitate to rent this exact same unit again. I highly recommend this rental to anyone planning on visiting Nice for a short or long period of time.

Perfect location, loved staying in Old Nice

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed in the apartment for one week at the end of March 2016. We combined the two apartments into a very spacious large apartment. The building is located in Old Nice and in a perfect location. We were able to walk to everywhere in Nice. Wonderful restaurants, bakeries, and grocery stores are located nearby. My daughter and I easily went on morning runs along the Promenade des Anglais from the apartment. We were able to walk to the train station. The outdoor market (Cours Saleya) and beach are so close. My youngest enjoyed the carousel and running through the fountains at nearby Pomenade du Paillon. My kids could find the apartment building without parent assistance. We found everything we needed in the apartment (well-equipped kitchen, cable TV, balcony, wiFi, washing machine). The beds were comfy. Plenty of towels provided. There is a lift in the building but my family ran up and down the stairs and opted not to use the lift (had to work off the baguettes & croissants!). It was easy to keep in touch with the manager Pam who gave us a very thorough run-through of the apartment upon check-in. If you want to stay in a historical building and feel like you are in "Old Nice", this the place for you!

great apartement in Nice

  • 5 of 5

Our apartment was very charming and well stocked and we were thrilled with the location. We walked a block to the flower/vegetable market for fresh strawberries and around the corner for wonderful bread every morning then headed for the beach, museums or shopping. The old town location is fabulous for restaurants and a flavor for the wonderful city of Nice. Pam was there for our arrival and was very helpful in acclimating us to our surroundings and very responsive when we had some trouble with the plumbing. We enjoyed local restaurants including La Merenda and Acchiardo. Would love to go back again and would highly recommend this property.

Great apartment in Old Nice

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this beautiful apartment and it was just as much fun.

Plenty of room for the family and friends and right in the old town, close to the market, beach and sights.

It has the charm of being very picturesque but with the modern comforts of good air conditioning,WiFi and plenty of bathrooms!

There is a perfectly good lift to take you to the fourth floor but I tended to take the wide, old staircase to keep fit and work off the holiday excesses! By the end of the week I could do the whole lot two at a time. It seemed to amuse the other very friendly, mostly French occupiers of the building anyway!

Pam Demacon was so helpful and efficient and made sure that we had everything we needed.

We really look forward to coming again.
