Perfect location for Nice and the Riviera

  • 5 of 5

Don't hesitate to book this lovely villa. Tastefully decorated it has all you need. A large balcony allows views across the harbour and the port. The villa is located on a street with other properties that has gated security access by key remote . Car parking is off road next to the house. There is no noise from surrounding properties or from external traffic which is surprising for a large city like Nice. Grocery shopping is just 1 minute away by car and a large Carrefour is just 5 minutes way. Many restaurants and other entertainment are all close by. We were met on our arrival and departure by the owners representative who was totally helpful and available at other times if required. Communication with the owner is first class and the service he provides cannot be faulted. There is just one complaint....we should have stayed longer! We will return if we visit Nice again.

A fantastic house in every way.

  • 5 of 5

I have been holidaying in rented properties in Europe for many years and this was probably the best of all the places I've stayed.

The house is stunning, incredibly well equipped, nicely decorated and furnished and with wonderful views. The location is fantastic as the villa is about a 15 minute walk from the port and old town but in a quiet and safe neighbourhood.

The owner went out of his way to provide very detailed information about the house and communication was exemplary both before and during our stay.

This property really does have the "wow factor" and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it - you won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

"We spent two weeks in Villa L''Herm in July 2012 (wk 28 and 29). We rented a car from airport and it immediately felt safe, when we noticed that Allee de la Palmiere is behind a gate. We were given the code to open it when we arrived. Houda and Philippe live next door so we were given the keys and instructions and Tour de Villa at once. And we fell in love with the villa really. The view is wonderful to Vieux Port, The Chateau Hill, Promenad des Anglais , airport and the city towards MAMAC. The house is like a home, full of small details all around. I particularly liked the library: I was able of study the history and geography of France. WiFi works without problem. TV sets, DVD and radio were also nice. Kitchen is good, we ate either on terrass or in the kitchen. It was never too hot at night because there are numerous electrical coolers in the house. I liked the pool, the water was not too warm (like neighbour Helmut''s, very nice neighbour though). Second week we had four children as our guests and they loved the pool, and it was also safe because it is only 120cm deep. We could easily walk to Vieux Ville, only 20 min. The car is easy to park either on the allele or in the yard. Washing machines worked as they should. Totally perfect. We felt privileged to live there! My mother, now 77 y, planned to rent L''Herm with couple of her lady friends. She liked the 1 floor arrangement, no stairs, except the cellar of course."

Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

I think your villa is very stylish comfortable and must have one of the best views in Nice. I loved just sitting on the balcony and taking in the surroundings as the evening approached. The villa had everything you could need or want.

The swimming pool was perfect with the water jet to swim against I had a daily work-out!

Familyfriendly vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect restingplace for our Nice vacation – two families of four.

The view is just as impressive as the pictures in the ad. The house is equipped with everything you need and more. Delphine the housesitter was very friendly and helpfull, providing us with whatever information we needed. The pool and garden area was perfect for sunbathing, playing with the kids and resting between our fieldtrips.

Bus 81 to Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and bus 100 to Monaco stops just down the road. Short walk to the Marina with a few restaurants that serves good, affordable fishdishes, and more. Mont Boron, the Old Town and the Promenade des Anglais are also within walking distance.

House-owner Jean-Pierre is awailable and easy to communicate with.
