The flat was in the perfect location. Seaside view and surrounded by lots of different restaurants and things to do. We were a family of three and my son slept on the pull out sofa in the lounge. We didn't use the pool because the beach was so much fun, but it looked clean and well kept. The apartment was also clean and had everything we needed, there was even some beers and water in the cupboard when we arrived which we replaced at the end of our stay. Communication with our host, Barbara was excellent even when we contacted her quite late in the evening. The only reason I have not given five stars was because the air con could not be controlled from the remote and needed to be switched on the the main circuit board (due to be fixed soon), we also couldn't get the TV to work but I didn't even try to resolve this as there was plenty of real life to watch from the balcony and there were a couple of broken chairs. All very minor things that didn't spoil our holiday at all. Wifi was good, which enabled us to book a couple of tours to see the sights. We would denfintely stay here again. Thanks so much Barbara.
Thanks for your review Michelle, and yes the air conditioning is a problem and getting someone there to fix it even a bigger one.
I didn't realise that chair(s) were broken, and will look into that. Also the TV- The problem is that tenants play with the controls and set it off track, but it should have been looked at before your arrival.
I am glad you had a good time and enjoyed the beach and apartment.
all the best, Barbara
Good location but apartment needs updating.
First impressions: compact well equipped kitchen, good satellite tv system and good sea views. Unfortunately, the apartment overall was tired and dated. Very uncomfortable settee, delapidated balcony furniture, very old threadbare bed linen, lumpy pillows and very old hard towels. The A/C remote control was broken and it could only be switched on and off by squeezing into a cupboard to reach an almost inaccessible switch. Also, the A/C unit, situated on the balcony leaked water into a bowl which had to be emptied every ten mins otherwise it flowed down into the restaurant below. In our opinion, this apt is not good value for money but for the location, and we have stayed in much better apartments in the area which did not cost as much. We will not be returning to this apartment.
Good Evening "Anonymous" I gather your name is Ian.... I was shocked to say the least after reading your account of the apartment. The "delapitated furniture as you call it is 2 years old. Unfortunately the family that rented before you made a hole in one chair, which has in the meantime been replaced. The bed linen is 1 year old, actually all bought of best quality in December 2015, as well as the towels that were bought this past spring 2016. Old? You were informed about the switch for the air conditioning and that a repairman was ordered (who appeared the day you left BTW) some repairs and mishappenings cannot be avoided unfortunately. It was high season on the Cote d'azur and the repairment needed 2 weeks before showing up. I welcome you to please book elsewhere in the future and not return to our apartment. I know for a fact that for the location it is a very good price when compared with sea view and size, airconditions, all bedding towels, fully equipped kitchen and free pool entry included (oh, and final cleaning). all the best, Barb.
Beau studio idéalement placé
Le studio correspond tout à fait à la description donnée. Très bien équipé. Idéalement situé. Comme annoncé, parking sur la voie publique où il faut parfois chercher (Haute saison) mais prix raisonnable (2€/jour).
Superbe vue sur la mer. Superbe piscine dans la résidence gardée et très calme. Nous aurions mis 5 étoiles si nous n'avions pas été dérangés par le magasin de nuit du rez-de-chaussée. Propriétaire très attentive. Nous avons été reçus comme prévu alors que notre créneau horaire était assez large. Nous y retournerons volontiers.
BBeachfront apartment in an idyllic location
Small apartment with beautiful sea views. Lovely pool complex and short stroll to the beach. Ideal location for the perfect holiday.
Awesome Stay! Would definitely recommend this apartment
From booking til checking out we were totally impressed with our stay. We had a lot of questions prior to our arrival and Barbara was quickly to respond and always very accommodating. We were met and greeted with professionalism upon our arrival. The property was spotless, clean and pristine. Everything was as described. It was great to have laundry facilities onsite, wifi and everything we needed. The view from the balcony was spectacular! It was relaxing for morning coffee and the sunsets were unforgettable. Location was perfect. Watching the water was soothing and calming, there were several beautitul beaches we could walk to and we had access to a pool as well. There were restaurants and little cafes along the streets and as well as on the beach side. We weren't far from the airport or the mall nearby. We rented a car and drove along to nearby cities as a day trip St Juan Les Pins, Monaco and the views again were spectacular through the mountains with views of the water. Couldn't ask for a better location! I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again.
Thank you very much for your kind words. I am glad you enjoyed the apartments and found lots to do during your stay. Of couse I'd be happy to welcome you back anytime!
Better than expected
My wife and I stayed here for a short vacation. The apartment was spotless clean, and the location was perfect. Bus in front of the building if we wanted to leave the car at home, and across from the sea just ideal. We discovered many great restaurants within walking distance and like the Wine Bar in the next building. Parking sometimes took a few drives around the block, but for 2 Euros a day a great deal. We rented bicycles one day for a long ride along the promenade. Apartment is ideal size for 2 people. We would return for a longer visit next time.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay in the apartment and that your found lots to do close by. Of course it would be great to see you again in the future for a longer visit.
Cagnes sur Mer is a medieval village located directly on the Mediterranean. A short bus or taxi ride directly from the Nice Airport. All construction is completed for a beautiful Promenade. Events and Festivals occur throughout the year. Seaside town with old town for special shopping. Ideally located for outings. Bus services directly to the City of Nice and Monaco and west to Cannes. Uncountable ideas for day trips with and without own transportation. 10 minute walk to 'doggy beach' for Canine friends. The midieval towns of La Colle, and Vence only 6 km away, and the artistia village of St. Paul only 8.
