What a Joy!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot rate this property or owners highly enough. Fantastic communication from Peter before and during our stay. Michel kindly met us on arrival and took time to show us round the apartment and also very patiently went through the map pointing out various bus routes, points of interest etc. The apartment was spotless, very well equipped, anything we needed was there. We enjoyed 'living' in the apartment rather than just having a bed for the night. Thank you both :)

Fabulous apartment with a wonderful owner!!!

  • 5 of 5

We love the lovely Cimiez neighbourhood and the short pleasant walks up and down gentle hills to restaurants and shops (estimated 10-15 minute and 20-25 minute leisurely walks respectively to the main train station and Place Massena respectively). Marc Chagall museum is literally round the corner!

This quiet, charming and well-maintained apartment is set back from the street in a large lovely courtyard. The apartment is fully equipped and is therefore perfect for a couple like us wanting options such as eating in, not relying on expensive hotel laundry etc. It is very tastefully decorated and very cozy and inviting. We enjoyed the south-facing balcony for our breakfast and for evening drinks.

Peter, the owner was extremely helpful both before we arrived (he even took the time to research restaurants and sights in the Alsace region for us) and during our stay. Peter is an engaging and interesting person who made us feel comfortable in asking about various things. Thanks to Peter, we learned about Cap Moderne and The Maeght Fondation. And excellent restaurant suggestions! When we noticed the bedside lamps not turning on on our 1st night, he was there to resolve it at a convenient time immediately the next day. This very comfortable apartment has an impressive accumulation of maps, brochures for various Côte d'Azur areas, and a collection of books, DVDs, great TV channel selection, etc.

We intend to return to Les Palmiers when we next visit Nice and we absolutely recommend Les Palmiers to anyone looking for quality accommodation in Nice!!!

A little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I used to visit Nice in the 80's with my parents so although the town has changed it was wonderful to find this flat and have the opportunity to explore the south of France again.

The flat is near enough the centre without the hustle and bustle, and easy to get to, either with a healthy walk down and a somewhat more challenging walk back up! Or by bus, the stops are nearby.

Everything in the flat is interesting, beautiful, stylish, comfortable or all of the above!

Peter and Michel are wonderfully attentive owner/hosts without being intrusive. They struck just the right note for me, ready to answer questions or give advice but not on top of me!

The change of temperature from icy, windy England to bright blue skies and balmy breakfast on the adorable terrace was perfect.

I was very happy to be so close to the Marc Chagall museum, his paintings are so inspirational for me. Also I had a fascinating walk a little way up the hill to the Regina, a big apartment/hotel block which Queen Victoria had built and used to visit in the winter and on to the remains of a very atmospheric Roman amphitheatre, and then on up again to a lovely park surrounding the Musee Matisse, another hero of mine!

I would highly recommend a visit, for a weekend or longer but it will be hard to leave Les Palmiers!

Comfortable and artsy!

  • 4 of 5

First off, Peter was so helpful with a map prepared with locations of restaurants, shopping, sights and bus stops. And even before we arrived we exchanged wonderful emails about other places to visit in France. The apartment is in a great residential location an easy bus ride from the main area of Nice. We bought a 7 day bus pass that goes beyond Nice, it was a great deal. I love the decor of the apartment, it's artsy and comfortable. There are books and magazines and a good selection of DVD's. The bed is amazingly comfortable. the terrace is a great place for morning coffee or an evening cocktail and the shower is huge! Thank you Peter and Michel for your charming hospitality!

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked the apartment for a relaxing break for 7 nights in September 2012. Firstly I cannot express how welcoming the owner of the property, Peter, made us feel (even before we arrived). Peter was extremely helpful for suggesting our transport to and from the apartment, gave us bus time tables, maps of the surrounding area and great ideas on where to eat the fabulous food in Nice.

As it was our first time in nice we really didn’t know which area would be the best location to stay, after exploring Nice for a week I would definitely recommend this apartment. It is very peaceful both during the day and at night and only 15 min walk to main shopping area in the centre of Nice. Yes, it has a bit of a walk to the Promenade de Anglais and the old town (for us aprox 20-30 min) but a beautiful and very enjoyable walk even for a pregnant woman? We didn’t hire a car during our stay and never felt we needed to, public transport is cheap and took us to Monaco and Cannes.

The apartment itself was extremely clean and very well maintained. It has a fully equipped kitchen with everything in working order, perfect for cooking a meal bought from the food markets. The balcony was lovely to sit on and have your breakfast. The bedroom was a good size with plenty of wardrobe space and a very comfy bed. The bathroom was spotless and has a terrific shower.

In summary a fabulous apartment with a very friendly and very helpful owner, I would highly recommend this apartment for any age of couple.

A trip to remember

  • 4 of 5

My other half and I have always wanted to explore the south of France and as he was due to fly to Afghanistan we wanted a romantic trip away before he left. The apartment was perfect, very similar to our flat in surrey so we felt at home straight away but we has the added bonus of a pretty balcony and hot weather!!

My partner and I like walks so as long as you dont mind a 20 mins walk into the Old town of nice your be fine and it was a beautiful walk of little french roads. The old town was full of life and plenty to see and do but it was nice to go back to the apartment at night for peace and quiet.

We could also get the bus all the way to Monaco which was a great day out and the bus trip was all along the south coast...we also got the train to cannes for the day...so it was great place to explore.

Peter the owner met us on arrival and was wonderful and talked us through the local area and all we could do, leaving us with a bottle of rose to enjoy, such a gentlemen.

Lovely place and good memories to hold onto, I cry as I write as he is now away but we loved this holiday and I would go back again...thank you Peter. x
