A sunny, south-facing terrace with dining furniture, an electric sun awning, lighting and easy chairs - perfect for al fresco living on sunny days and warm evenings! An oasis of peace and quiet at the rear of the building after time at the beach, touring or shopping. The comfortable living area has air conditioning, a couch which converts to an additional bed, a glass dining table with four chairs. Cable TV, video, DVD, CD, internet (incl WiFi). Fully equipped kitchen with ceramic hob, refrigerator with freezer, washing machine with dryer, microwave and conventional ovens. The bedroom has separate air-conditioning.

Airport Terminal/Train Station Pick Up Service: We offer a special pick up service from the NICE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT or NICE SNCF TRAIN STATION to your rental apartment. An English-speaking driver will pick you up by appointment and take you and your luggage directly to the apartment which you have rented. The low cost for this service is 13euros from the SNCF Nice centre train station and 28euros from the airport. So, no more waiting for a non-existent taxi from the train station or lifting and lugging your luggage from the airport to the bus or taxi to be left off several blocks from your apartment. Be sure to enquire about this service when making your booking.

Excursion Service - Private Tours: We are pleased to introduce you to Gateway Excursions which offers private tours of the French Riviera in comfortable and luxurious 4 and 8 seater air conditioned cars and minibuses. Their English-speaking drivers can accompany you to all destinations including the Italian border town of Ventimiglia for its well-known weekly market, or all the way down the French Riviera coastline to St. Tropez to visit the famous summer playground of the stars with a stop-over in Cannes to see the Festival Hall where the internationally renown Cannes Film Festival takes place and the beach where the starlets show off their wares. Details and prices are available through Robbie tel: (003306) 5064.7327 or send email enquiry to: contact@gt-way.com or upon your arrival in Nice, but advance booking is necessary during high season.

French Riviera Casino Tour: Never been to a casino? Intimidated by the idea of losing money but curious about those who win and lose and how games are played and machines work? Why not take a tour with an English-speaking guide who will accompany you to the Casino in Monaco or Antibes or to one of the casinos in Nice and explain protocol and procedures to you. Find out how the high rollers operate. Watch them in action and observe their tactics and facial expressions. Or, observe the slot machine players and hear the sweet sound of the coins falling when they hit on good luck? Or, try your own luck with the machines or at the tables, but you will be under no obligation to play and you'll be sure to arrive home safely.

Wonderful little hidden apartment in a central location

  • 5 of 5

We were given excellent instructions on how to find the apartment, walking from the train station. It's a cute, sunny, very nice property located on a pedestrian only street. There are lots of cafes, markets, and shops within steps of the apartment. The unit is on the back side of the building so it's quiet, and you don't hear all the people on the street. Highly recommended.

Great base in Nice.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location near to shopping, restaurants, short walk to the beach or light rail. At the rear of the building so super quiet. Apartment of good size and all the modern appliances. Wifi was iffy but our hosts were most welcoming and helpful. We'd stay again.

Gorgeous apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at the apartment. Great location in the centre of the action in Nice, close to shops, the beach and Place Massena. Spacious apartment, lovely and quiet terrasse, great AC and wifi. We usually walked to the Vieille Ville to check out the restaurants there, though there were many nearby to the apartment. Kitchen was well set up for cooking. Our host was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any questions that we had. Highly recommend staying here!

A great spot in the heart of Nice

  • 4 of 5

This is place is in a lively part of Nice and close to everything. There are some great restaurants just outside your door. Although its in a busy area the apartment is on the back side of the building so you dont here any of the noise. The patio is great spot to sit and have a glass of hwine. Not much of a view but it has the atmosphere. The tram to get around Nice is just around the corner. It will take you to any where you need to go from the bus station to the train station

A wonderful apartment close to main attractions

  • 4 of 5

We had originally booked from Tuesday to Tuesday but we had to change from Saturday to Saturday and this was done without any hassle. As we were arriving late on Saturday the keys were left for us at the airport and when we arrived there was bread, milk and cheese and wine left for us. We had been given full instructions how to get there and we used Shuttle Direct for the transfers by taxi and they were excellent. The apartment is on the third floor and you have to go up about nine steps to reach the very small lift but that was not a problem. The apartment has all the facilities you could need for cooking and a lovely bathroom and bedroom with a large comfortable bed. The living room / kitchen has its own air conditioning unit and there is a separate one in the bedroom. The view from the verandah is not the prettiest but it is a sun trap from early in the morning and has a table and chairs for dining al fresco. All in all we consider this apartment to be good value for money and its location close to Place Massena is excellent. We would thoroughly recommend as it is also lovely and quiet being at the rear of the building. You might want to ask for a second set of keys if you want to do separate things during your stay.
