One of the Best Places We've Stayed!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we met the lovely Pat and were shown around Andrew and Jan's gorgeous apartment, we fell in love with it! The furnishings were beautiful (and so French!) - the parquetry floors, the extremely comfy lounge, the spacious bedrooms. There was so much attention to detail, they'd thought of everything. From the complimentary wine, cheese, milk and crusty French bread, coffee maker with pods, soaps, tissues, shopping bags and trolley, beach umbrellas and beach chairs to the laundry bag, fold-out clothesline and pegs - everything was covered!

The beds were comfortable, the towels were fluffy, the showers were hot, the wi-fi fast and the air conditioning was fabulous. There were books to read and even board games to play and we loved the cable tv.

The apartment was in a brilliant location, close to the beach, promenade and shops, our favourite being the patisserie, Canet! We loved sitting on the terrace watching the sunsets and enjoying the atmosphere.

This was honestly one of the best places we have stayed and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. Thank you!

Amazing Apartment with a beautiful view and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The only negative to this apartment is that only one room has air conditioning. During the summer months, its hot but i will say if you leave the doors open and put the fans on, we slept comfortably. Pat had some bread, wine and cheese for us in the apartment. You need to take your own shampoo, conditioner and soap. I would highly recommend this place.

Clean, top-notch apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in many AirB&B apartments before. This apartment has exceeded my expectation as related to size, deco, furniture, location and cleanliness. Furniture is not brand new, but well kept and clean. It has a large balcony that let five of us to enjoy breakfast while looking out to the mountain in a distance. Andrew, the owner was very attentive to my needs. He answered all my questions timely and satisfactorily. At first, I was skeptical about how close it is to the tourist attractions, grocery stores, and parking. Parking is really right across the street and a grocery store is around the corner. Walking to Prom des Anglais and Old Town is within 30 minutes if you don't get lost, but we did most of the time. The property manager, Pat arrived at the apartment to meet us on time. She took the time to introduce the apartment to us. There were a bottle of vine and baguette waiting for us in the apartment as well. Without reservation, I highly recommend this apartment for any travelers to Nice. Andrew and Pat deserve this recommendation.

Fantastique!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was fabulous! We were a party of four women and found this gem of a place to be a dream residence for our week in Nice. It's a perfect place to stay the month! Where do I start? The three bedrooms and four beds worked out quite nicely for us. The bedrooms were comfortable and cozy. The apt was air conditioned, a real bonus. The 2 full bathrooms were spacious and suitable for 4 girls. The kitchen was very well stocked and included both an American coffee maker and an espresso maker. The refrigerator greeted us with wine, milk, orange juice, etc.,. to get us through our first day's arrival. A very thoughtful and appreciated gesture! The girls and I enjoyed the living room and the terrace immensely. Our evenings were spent either on the terrace with a fabulous Rose and some cheese, or in the formal living room, discussing our day and the next adventure to come. The location of the apartment was fantastic as well. It is located only about four or five small blocks from the Promenade Anglais.

The apartment is decorated so elegantly and simply. There is a beautiful light about it, night and day. Andrew was absolutely wonderful to work with and incredibly accommodating. We felt like special guests at 56 Rue St Philippe! We would recommend this gorgeous place in a heart beat! Miss it already. Thank you Andrew, Jan and Pat!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Everything went right with our stay in Nice. We were met on time, shown the apartment and given a bottle of wine and a few other essential groceries to begin our stay. The apartment is in a great location, short walk to the promenade and the old town part of Nice. After a few nights in Aix-en-Provence staying at a three-story walk-up, we were thrilled with the small, but very reliable elevator. The apartment itself was impeccably clean and very well furnished (thank you for the Nespresso!). It was lovely to sit out on the terrace in the morning and the evening. We loved our stay.

The apartment is situated in the centre of Nice in one of the prime residential areas, away from the heavy traffic of the Promenade & other major routes, but still within easy walking distance of the beach & town centre. It is 7 mins walk to the beach and 13 mins to Place Magenta (the pedestrian centre of Nice). The old town, atmospheric, bustling by day and noisy by night, is a 25 minute stroll along the Promenade. Built by the English in Victorian times the wide Promenade with its palm trees is the most impressive on the Riveria.

Just around the corner from the apartment you will find all the shops you require for your daily needs, as well as the pretty, 100 year old Jardins Alsace Lorraine. Buses from there will take you anywhere - direct to the airport, rail station or central Nice, or from the Promenade you can go to Cannes, Antibes and many other outlying villages. Bus travel is cheap; a 1.5 Euro fare is valid for most journeys up to 74 minutes including changes. (Buying a 10 journey ticket reduces the cost per journey to 1 Euro)
