Review #7229102 "Fantastic location and apartment"



Fantastic location and apartment just as described. Excellent directions from the airport and so easy to find. No car needed as public transport by bus or train is very reasonable. Great winter sun location and the Christmas market was excellent.

One word - Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment, clean and tidy, and excellent location. We went as a group of 4 and the accommodation was large enough for us. We all loved it and are already in the process of arranging a return journey. Highly recommended!

NICE - Appartement Bord de la Mer

  • 4 of 5

Nice and the surrounding countryside in May is a wonderful time to visit and the Appartement Bord de la Mer provides the ideal base to explore. The Appartement is very convenient for local shops and the Promenade des Anglais. The local bus and tram services are only a 10 min walk away through one of the main shopping streets. The Appartement is well furnished and clean. The bathroom and kitchenette are pleasant, and have all you need. The accommodation is suitable for 3 people comfortably, or 4 if necessary. The owner provided all the necessary information relating to the appartement and the local ammenities.

As the Appartement is on the second floor, the only concern was the lift which worked erratically, possibly making it difficult those less able who would have to use the stairs We had a great two weeks in Nice and would recommend the appartement to anyone who wants to explore Nice.

Owner's Response: Bonjour Guests, Thank you for this great review, your stay is truly important to us. The lift is being fixed, and I am informed that it is working well. As the apartment is only on the 2nd floor, it is only a few flights up, but we understand that the feature lift is useful for suitcases and etc. We try to beat the lift, via the stairs, when we send up our bags! Most apartments in France, do not have lifts, so we are blessed with this lift. We are a family of 4/5 and find the apartment very well suited, we also get some mixed groups to stay. Just to let other guests know we have installed a lovely new shower, and kitchen oven top. I would like to thank all our repeat guests for coming back year after year. This means so much to me and my family to get it right. A Bientot Richard et Family

Very nice and clean, close to the sea-front,

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four, we rented this lovely flat for a week over the Xmas period. The flat is very nicely done up, main bedroom separated from iving-room/kitchen area where the children can sleep. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby, yet very quiet as the windows open on a quiet street to the side. Owners very friendly and helpful, we will definitely rent it again !!

Lovely week spent here in October 2015

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in a perfect location close to everything. We had a lovely stay in Nice and visited St Paul de Vence, Antibes, Cannes and Monte Carlo/Monaco. Bus services to all these places great and only 1.5 euros to all of them - pay on the bus. Apartment was fine for 3 people and had everything we needed. Would not hesitate to use this apartment again.

Just image yourself sipping a cold glass of Rose wine or drinking a fresh ground French Cafe, relaxing and watching the world go by? In this perfect cosmopolitan near beach front location. This much sort after fantastic central location, near a local french bakery on Nice's famous first old road, the Rue de France, situated in the 'Golden Quarter' (Carre D'or) in Nice. Literally a leisurely 1 minute walk to the sea front & beach. Situated on a quiet side street, but close to all the best restaurants, cafe culture, street entertainers, designer shopping boutiques (like Chanel, Armani, Karen Millen, and many more), famous museums (Matisse etc) and transport links. Le Carré d'Or, or 'Gold district' is the elegant section of the pedestrian zone of central Nice, which begins at the Promenade des Anglais and extends to the tree-lined Boulevard Victor Hugo. Look for street names like Paradis, Alfonse Karr or Longchamp in order to identify this chic quarter of Nice.The 'Gold District' is the Mayfair or Park Avenue of Nice,on the gorgeous French Riviera Coast.

Other Activities: Shopping, Festivals, Art Galleries, Architecture, Canoeing, Wildlife (inc outside Wolf Sanctuary watching), Photography, Restaurants and night-life.

Golf: See Owners Website for excellent Golf Courses nearby on the French Riviera!

Ski: Winter skiing & Snow boarding is easy; Isola 2000 is a large modern resort, very popular, with good lifts and well maintained runs for all abilities. It is 2,000 metres high and usually has good snow from before Xmas to March. It's about 1hr 30 minutes drive from Nice, or there is a ski-bus service from central Nice (10 minute walk from our apartment). Auron, Valberg, Greolieres, and a number of smaller resorts are lower altitude and hence have snow for a shorter time, they are about the same driving time from Nice. Limone in Italy is prettier and about the same size, it is about a 2 hour drive.
