Nathalie Weidenfeld, Denmark - 31 Aug 2016
Everything went very well, thank you. The apartment is very beautiful and Sandra very helpful. (I didn’t know she spoke German as I am half French that was t important but German guests might be happy to know)

Emily P., Chicago USA - 12 July 2016
We had a great time! The apartment was beautiful, had stunning views, was very clean and to our expectations. Sandra was very helpful in showing us around the apartment. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends & family. 

Lisa Gibson, California, USA - 12 July 2016
Thanks Chris, we really enjoyed our stay in your apartment. Sandra was helpful and the apartment was well stocked and felt clean and well cared for. We especially enjoyed watching the goings on at the port and walking to to the local grocery store.
Thanks again for sharing your place with us.

Terri Merrit-Worden, Nashville, TN, USA - 4 July 2016
We had a wonderful time in Nice and loved the apartment.  The apartment was very clean and more than what we had hoped.
We loved your restaurant suggestions and the info on the bus stops was great.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Absolutely will recommend and we do hope to be back in a few years.  We thought the location was ideal

Sandie Sharp, Surrey, UK - 3 Jun 2016
We have just returned from a wonderful week in your lovely Nice penthouse apartment and I have to say it more than lived up to our expectations. The accommodation was ideal for a family group of four adults and we spent many a happy late evening with a glass or two, enjoying the stunning views from the lounge over Nice Port and the surrounding mountains.
The apartment was more than adequately equipped with crockery, glasses, mugs, etc. and the dishwasher worked perfectly. We had no occasion to use the oven, washing machine, or TV as we were out much of the time. 
Thank you again for the use of your delightful apartment  -  I am missing it, and  those stunning views, already! We hope to return again one day.

Bent Jorgensen, Jylland, Denmark - 21 May 2016
We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment was neat and clean when we arrived and everything was very okay. We enjoyed the afternoons very much sitting on the terrasse overlooking the Mediterranean while drinking a glass of white wine. The restaurants just downstairs were great and we visited them several times.
It was our second stay in the apartment and we will probably return for the third time.

Anthony Curran, County Armagh, UK - 20 Apr 2016
We all had a great time and the apartment is excellent.  It was in a fantastic location,  so handy to Nice old town the promenade and the local bus and taxi rank.  
The view was incredible, overlooking the port and the weather nice enough for April that we could sit out on the balcony and enjoy it. We would love to return and would have no problem recommending it to friends as it was spotless.

John Sweeney, MA, USA - 13 Mar 2016
The time here is coming to a close [stayed for 2 months between January and March]. We've had a great time and are sorry to leave. We have enjoyed your beautiful apartment and the wonderful views.
We have done a lot of walking since there is so much to see and do. We may want to consider coming back again next winter, but it's too early for us to know if and when.

Frank Caldwell, Stanstead Abbotts, Herts, UK - 30 Nov 2015
Was the apartment clean and to your expectations?
Spotless and met our requirements. Hopefully we left it just as clean.  Would recommend without doubt.

Wonderful, wonderful views from the balcony. Very reliable wireless connection.Lovely walks and views up towards Mount Boron and then using the stairway down to the coast road. Used the local restaurants you recommended and would endorse them.
Ma Nolan’s was very busy and it was nice to have the occasional pint of beer. Although busy, no noise could be heard in the apartment.

Marianne MacDonald, Kent, UK - 26 Aug 2015
We had a lovely time in your lovely apartment – even better to know we missed flooding back home!
Thanks once again for the use of your fab place, it really couldn’t be better located.

Jenny Derham, Surrey, UK - 24 Aug 2015
We had an absolutely amazing holiday, the weather was incredibly hot and the apartment was fantastic. everything was perfect in all respects, clean, tidy and very modern and we would definitely recommend it to other people and possibly return.
We followed your advice and did not hire a car.  The public transport was very good and very cheap.

Rob Hart, Wiltshire, UK - 13 Aug 2015
1.Can't fault essential information guide received before arrival.
2. Sandra was excellent. I phoned her up to see how to work the hob and she was very helpful.
3.The apartment was very clean and met our expectations.
4. Most definitely would recommend and consider booking again.
5. Information on local area and recommendations in essential guide spot on. We enjoyed in particular the Rothschild Villa in Cap Ferrat and the La Cigna restaurant by the apartment.

Nicole Randall, Massachusetts, USA - 13 Aug 2015
We just returned from our holiday in France yesterday!  It was fantastic.

We absolutely loved your apartment.  It was perfect for our family of four (including 10 year old twin boys).  There was plenty of space, it was super clean and the views of the port were spectacular, providing constant entertainment for the boys (and us too!).  The location was very convenient, and made it easy for us to walk everywhere - Old Town, Castle Hill, Promenade des Anglais, the beaches past the Port (heading east) and the tram .  The bus to Monaco (and towns in between) couldn’t have been easier (or closer).  

The “Essential Information” was extremely detailed and very accurate.  It was so helpful to have it as a reference for everything.

Sandra [local agent] was fabulous.  She couldn’t have been nicer.  You have a real gem in her.

The apartment was spotless (and I am a clean freak).  I was very impressed with how it presented.

I would absolutely recommend the apartment to friends/family and would 100% stay there again on our next visit to Nice. We had friends staying in Nice at the same time, and they couldn’t believe the apartment - location, views, size, multiple bathrooms, etc.

We rented a convertible one day (at the train station) and drove to Saint-Paul-de-Vence, Tourrettes-Sur-Loup and Antibes. That was pretty fun!  I would recommend that adventure to future guests.

Jim Stewart - Palmerston, ACT, Australia - 18 July 2015
General Comments: The apartment is very well located near the old town, beaches and the port. It has been nicely renovated, giving modern, clean accommodation with great views and easy access to Nice’s main attractions. Highly recommended.

Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
We walked to Nice Riquier Station in about 15 mins to easily travel to Cannes and Antibes. You may wish to note this as an option, as it is much quicker than taking the bus. There is also a very interesting walk around the headland on the left side of the port from the apartment.

Maureen Dick - Perthshire, UK - 17 July 2015
We had a fantastic time in Nice .

Your apartment was beautiful & light , great space & layout , beautiful shower room  & lovely wc & ensuite ( looked new - fab ! ) , immaculately clean & tidy , looked fresh decor , linens were lovely quality , location & views were excellent - we totally loved your apartment !

Sandra was charming , efficient, contactable  & key transfer super easy . 

We would definitely recommend your apartment to friends & would stay there again .

We would give this property 5 star review . 

Lindsay Russell, Oxford, UK - 12 Jun 2015
We enjoyed a lovely few days in Nice.  The weather was superb and the location of the apartment could not be bettered.

Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
Carpe Diem restaurant - superb restaurant in the old town.  Great reviews on Trip Adviser and highly recommended.  We hired bikes for the day and enjoyed a great cycle to Villefranche.  A trip on the bus to Eze is also highly recommended.  The views are superb and the buses excellent value.

Richard Heller, Illinois, USA - 7 Jun 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed your apartment and had a great time in Nice.  Your close proximity to Old Town, Chateau Hill park, Garibaldi square and the promenade make it an ideal spot.  Of course the view of the harbor is outstanding and was especially fun with the luxury yachts around for Grand Prix weekend.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Yes we would, definitely.

The Chagall museum is a very nice visit - inexpensive taxi there and a bit long but easy walk back. We tried several of the restaurants that you suggested and all were very nice.  Le Bistro du Port was especially delightful because of the added involvement with the owner, who's a bit of a character.

Hazel & Brian Horsburgh, Surrey, UK - 24 Apr 2015
We had such a fantastic holiday. Your apartment is great, wants for nothing and can think o no nice a place to sit in the sunshine listening to the hustle and bustle of Nice. We loved the whole area and definitely want to go back another time, so much still to do !

Tino Peters, Berlin, Germany - 5 Apr 2015

We are back in Berlin. We spent beautiful days in Nizza and your apartment was wonderful.

testimonials 2014

Roger Bachelor, Devon, UK - 11 Oct 2014
The comments on the apartment are all favourable, we had a great holiday. The most outstanding feature is the view over the harbour. That was beautiful in all the different lights of the sun. The apartment itself was clean, we'll equipped and conveniently located. the local agent was friendly and also cooperative when we arrived early. the information you provided was thorough and useful. However, we thought we knew Nice, we haven't Been for a few years and spent an amusing morning looking for the bus station which has now disappeared.

Russel Hawker, Massachusetts, USA - 9 Oct 2014
We had a lovely time and the apartment was exceptional. It is a beautiful location and your web site pictures do it justice.  It is on a lively street with many wonderful restaurants. I would recommend this to anyone. 
The transit systems are great and is all you need as advertised in you comments.  All in all I would highly recommend this property for people traveling in Nice.

Paul O’Hara, Cheshire, UK - 22 Sep 2014
We had a great time, thanks and the apartment was ideal; we’d recommend (already have done) and will use it again.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
I think I'd emphasise that the bus stop virtually right outside provides a great service to Monaco. Great VFM too. Also, we'd been under the impression that it was quite a walk to get into the thick of Nice whereas it was only 10 minutes or so to the Old Town. A pleasant walk too. We didn' t have a bad meal anywhere so it's difficult to pick out any one restaurant.

Phil Gilmour, Manchester, UK - 1 Sept 2014
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Yes - nice apartment, good location.Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests? We found that the train to Cannes was a good option but beware the cost of a taxi from the train station to the apartment (24 euro).

Jill Ryan, Barnsley, S. Yorkshire, UK - 1 Sept 2014
We had a great holiday thank you and enjoyed the apartment. The view is spectacular! an evening drinking in the view and admiring the spectacular yachts beneath us. Perfect place to people watch!
The local transport system is excellent value for money - both the buses and the trains. We visited some beautiful locations from Monaco to Cannes. We really liked Eze and Villefranche too.

Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Definitely.

Lars Blomholt, Valby, Denmark - 19 Aug 2014
We had a great time in your wonderful apartment.
How did you find my local agent? Sandra was very helpful and also gave us good advises where to eat and where not to.
Restaurant La Vigna is as you did mention great. Good service with skilled staff.

Sally Roberts, Durham, UK - 7 Aug 2014
Was the apartment clean and to your expectations? Yes, very much so.
Best thing was sitting on the balcony for breakfast or a drink late at night watching all the boats coming and going. Spent alot of time doing that. Aircon was a godsend as too hot without. great to come back for a breather during the day and cool down.
We enjoyed going to Monaco and the bus was great although very busy, particularly the one coming back.

Bill Fornaci, New Jersey, USA - 31 July 2014

Of the 7 apartments we have rented in Paris and Nice over the last several years, yours was the FIRST where everything worked as described and documented. Thank you for that.

Hemang Mehta, Cardiff, UK - 26 July 2014
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Absolutely. Good location and lovely penthouse. Views and facilities were just right.
Beaches, walks and water sports at cap ferrat were much more enjoyable very close and convenient on bus rather than too commercialized Nice. 

Katherine Donnan, Armagn, UK - 29 June 2014
The apartment was fantastic thankyou for sharing it with us !! The apartment was spotless met our expectations - we loved the port view. Would definately both recommend it and consider using it again.

The apartment is very close to everything required for a lovely holiday - the NICE beach with its deeply shelving stones is difficult for swimmers  who are not confident.

Peter Dunkley, Haselmere, Surrey, UK - 16 June 2014
Deciding to return to somewhere you liked always has a risk - in the intervening time you build up an image in your mind that reality can’t quite deliver. Not in this case. We found our second visit even better than the first. Nice is a wonderful city and this spectacularly located penthouse has everything you need for a sublime stay. The owner Chris takes real care in creating a clean, well-equipped and great place to be, ably supported by his lovely local agent Sandra who is kind and obliging. Of course, telling the world about this gem will only make it harder to book next time around, but it deserves all the business it can handle.

Bent Jorgensen, Jylland, Denmark - 6 May 2014
We had a great time in Nice with our friends. It was our third time, and twice we have stayed on The Royal on the Promenade des Anglais. We liked that and enjoyed the view over the sea. But after having stayed in the apartment we definitely prefer that with the view over the port.
The apartment was clean and perfect for four people.
We have already recommended the apartment to family and friends and we definitely consider using it again.
We tried different restaurants and found them all very good. I think that our holiday experience has to do with being in the city and ‘taking it all in’: The old Town, the beach, the promenade, the old port, the beautiful boats – in short: just being there.

Bo Ekstrom, Stockholm, Sweden - 25 Apr 2014
We spent a wonderful week in your splendid apartment in Nice, with our daughter and our three grandchildren. Thank you very much and please forward our thanks also to Sandra who served us very well.

Lyle Brown and family, Nanaimo, Canada - 16 Apr 2014

Just arrived home last night from Heathrow great trip it was long but very enjoyable.
Loved your apartment Great view Great location your information package was complete your agent was very helpful place was clean and we would definitely recommend it as a great place to stay.

Jean Egan, Surrey, UK - 25 Mar 2014
The location of the apartment is simply fantastic; those glorious views mean that one is constantly entertained by the ever changing activities of the port. The balcony is a great place to sit in the warm sunshine, with a glass of wine in hand.
It is also marvellous that within 2 minutes walk, one can be at bus stops, supermarkets, boulangeries, restaurants, bars and so on. The apartment itself is clean, comfortable, and equipped with everything one could possibly require.
I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Janet Brown, Worcester Park, UK - 20 Mar 2014
We had a lovely 4 day break visiting superb restaurants on the door step as well as visiting markets and the old town a short walk away. The apartment is fantastically located with easy access to affordable travel for places along the coast, which we took advantage of spending a leisurely day in Monaco.
For me the most enjoyment was taking in the sights and sounds of the harbour from the apartment  balcony, whether it be first thing in the morning over a  laid back breakfast, sampling local produce, to enjoying a glass of wine in the evening sun.
A lovely break in a wonderful apartment and beautiful location – thank you.

Sarah Forsyth, Rutland, UK - 25 Feb 2014
I thoroughly enjoyed my three weeks and loved the aspect of the apartment. The apartment was clean and as I expected; I would definitely recommend it to friends.  It could do with a bowl for salad and possibly a bread basket, but otherwise it was well equipped.
Your agent was fine and very friendly.

Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
I always hesitate to recommend anywhere because I have found over the years that what I like is not necessarily what other people like!   All I would say is that the buses are fantastic and for long journeys incredibly cheap.

Australian family with children, Sydney - 25 Jan 2014
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Certainly, the apartment was absolutely spotless.
Sandra [local agent] was great - prompt and easily accessible via mobile phone; The essential info doc was very thorough and very helpful
; Loved the view, wonderful place for a holiday.

testimonials 2013

Debra Rifkin, Jefferson City, USA - 5 Nov 2013
We would definitely recommend your apartment to others and would stay again.
The Port location is one of the best for access to transportation!  Taxis, city buses, double-decker tour bus are all right down the street and the tram a short walk away.

Your restaurant advice was great!  We've been to Nice before and really enjoyed the Port area. Having such a great number of restaurants, we didn't have to leave the street!
Loved the large bathroom!!!  The walk-in shower is magnificent!!!
Though we only used it in the bedroom, the air-conditioning was outstanding.  Those wall units are excellent!
The view was amazing!

Klauspeter Muller, Pinneberg, Germany - 16 Oct 2013
We had an very nice holiday in Nice and at the Cote dAzur.

We went to Monaco and Cannes by train and started in Nice-Riquier, because this station is nearer to the appartment than Nice-ville.

Michel Thomas, Torquay, Devon, UK - 6 Oct 2013
We had a lovely time in Nice and the surrounding area.  Your apartment was perfectly located with the most superb outlook!  Your detailed instructions emailed in advance were spot on.  No problems at all.
We enjoyed the old town and to have that on our doorstep was great. 
We would suggest that all visitors take the bus ride along the coast to Menton - the scenery was probably the best we have ever seen and all for only 3 euros return!

Peter Dunkley, Surrey, UK - 25 Sept 2013

To wake up to an azure sky and be greeted by the sight of £50m of superyachts below your balcony is a wonderful way to start the day. We spent a fabulous week in this apartment and started recommending it to friends as soon as we got back. It is exactly as advertised: finished to a high standard, with good taste, and equipped with everything you need.

The location is just perfect, and quite apart from the inspiring vista you’re also just minutes from the wonderful old town and the beach. You absolutely don’t need a car if you’re staying in Nice, or want to go up and down the coast (the train is excellent). The airport bus decants you just a couple of streets away.

A word also about the owner Chris, who sends you forensically detailed and useful information to help you get the best from your stay, and – the first time I’ve ever experienced this in 20 years – a questionnaire afterwards to see if you were happy.  Very impressive all round .

Gainne Crowley - Dublin, Ireland - 15 Sept 2013

Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again?
I would, and have done already, recommend the apartment to friends. The apartment was very clean and was well equipped.

I would warn guests to expect delays if taking the no 100 bus to Monaco, we waited for an hour, the train may be a better way to get there. The local restaurants were very good, the views were lovely, I would add that the balcony gets lovely sun in the afternoon/evening. I would also add that the apartment, being on the 6th floor, was really quiet at night which in my opinion is a huge plus.

Hamish McClelland - Newcastle upon Tyne, UK - 14 Sept 2013
Apartment was spotless when we arrived - and hopefully when we left. We strongly recommend the apartment for a stay; we enjoyed staying in the apartment and would recommend it with wonderful views from the verandah.  A good sight for enjoying the port and its facilities and for public transport elsewhere.

The essential information pack is excellent.  This is our fifth visit to Nice so we are reasonably habituated.  Some points may be worth adding:
We always visit the Ligne d’Azur bus office (B.Jean Faures 75m. from Place Garibaldi) for all timetables useful for planning visits and sells 7 day bus tickets.

We tried most of recommended restaurants, also liked Marlan and Beau Rivage especially for coffee as meals variable and expensive. 

David Southard - Exeter, Devon, UK - 29 Aug 2013
Yes, the apartment was clean and tidy.  Having visited Nice on three occasions previously, my expectations of the apartment were high as I was familiar with the delights of the 'Old Town' and the Marina.  I have to say that my expectations were exceeded.  The outlook from the apartment over the Marina and the Château is magnificent.

We did find the cost of car hire at two outlets at the Marina to be prohibitive at 70 to 80 Euros for one day; consequently we did not hire a car as we had planned.  Before we travelled, I had seen an advertisement for car hire at the Marina at 30 Euros per day, but there was an additional mileage charge within the small print.

I would certainly recommend the apartment to friends and would consider using the apartment again, if I could afford it.

Yves Ouvard - Charente, France - 21 Aug 2013
A very comfortable and beautiful place, easy to keep clean. Thank you.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Yes, without doubt.
For restaurants : we always trust the announce "Petit Futé" : not too expensive, good quality. We enjoyed a very cheap ticket to visit 8 museums : Matisse, Chagall, Massena, Archeologic, etc : http://matisse2013.nice.fr/fr/presentation
But only for 2013. Hope it will be another for 2014.

Sue Welland -Staffordshire, UK - 4 Aug 2013
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? It was superbly located with great views.  Lovely restaurants right on our door stop too.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?  Don't always follow the obvious route around the port and up to the promenade.  We found a five minute quick route straight up to Place Garibaldi .  Local public transport exceptionally cheap and easy to use, we went to Monte Carlo for four of us for 12 euros return! 
The castle on the hill and the waterfall [opposite the apartment] can be accessed by a free lift to the top on the bend as you come down to the promenade - we went the long route the first time!  We also used the local train to Antibes which was very easy and cheap too.  Ma Nolans was a definite favourite with our teenagers, lovely food as were all the restaurants we sampled along the same stretch but well worth visiting the restaurants further into Nice near to the market too.

Jean Johansson - North Ayrshire, UK - 29 July 2013
The apartment is lovely, light and airy, pristine condition, wonderful views and well stocked with everything you need.

Location is perfect, you get the best of both worlds with the bustling old town and trendy Promenande des Anglais just round the corner. Transport links are great, we jumped on the bus to Monaco and the airport right outside our doorstep. The owner sent us all 'essential info', which made the stay so easy and the restaurant recommendations were useful too!

Ill be renting this one again.

Karl Elsass - Ohio, USA - 15 July 2013
It was a really great place, and we loved our stay there.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Yes - it was great.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests? There are so many nice places near the flat. We found a small, local crepe place that was great.  You could add that if you wanted -- although, I forget the name.  Maybe Creperie Bretone .
Any other comments? I already miss it. We hope to be back soon as well.  It is a lovely flat, in a great area!

Gordon Brearley - Newark, UK - 1 July 2013
My daughter and I really enjoyed our short break and thought that the apartment was excellent. Great location and excellent views.  I would recommend to others.

We thought that the 100 bus to Monaco at 1 euro each way was a bargain and the bus stop is very close by. But it is a very busy service – hardly surprising at that price.

Sue Hollest, Wiltshire, UK - 27 June 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed the superb facilities of the apartment, its position and the wonderful views!

Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
We have found a good Car Park solution for any future visitors to the apartment. It is the Barla Parking -Max 10 mins walk form apartment.
Here are the directions for you to give out - if this is helpful........................
Leave port at west corner, Rue Francois Guisol.
Cross three small streets, and then the cross the main road - Rue Barla
Barla underground parking is about 300m on the right.
20 euros per 24 hours (as apposed to 50 in the port!!), or 36 euros for 3 days - which is only offered to you when you go to pay after the first 24 hours!

Alana Gillham, Queensland, Australia - 24 June 2013
We had a fabulous time in the apartment during our stay in Nice.
1) All the information you provided was there and easy to find.
2) Your agent was very friendly and also helpful with directions.
3) The apartment was very clean and tidy, and things were easy to find.
4) I would happily recommend the apartment to my friends and will absolutely rent it again on my return to Nice.

Keith Pollster - Port Jefferson, New York - 19 June 2013
Was the apartment clean and to your expectations? Yes and Yes - loved it.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Definitely. The view is just spectacular, and we loved just sitting with a glass of wine on the balcony in the evening. It was amazing that we couldn’t hear the crowds directly below at the restaurants. And after a long day of site seeing, it was great to have such nice restaurants right there. We hope to come back with friends in the future.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests? Your restaurant recommendations were great. We took your advice regarding public transportation and cancelled our car rental, which we were quite happy with. Nothing else we can think to add.

Kirstin Dawson, Edinburgh, UK - 18 June 2013
We had a great time, the balcony was fantastic for relaxing and enjoying the views (and wine!). The free Wifi was great.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
We took a one hour cruise from the opposite side of the port, Would highly recommend this to others.  They also do boat trips to Monaco. We had a lovely lunch in a local restaurant called 'L'uizine' on a side street off the port, well worth a recommendation to others. 

Mike Ward, Stevenage, Hertfordshire, UK - 7 June 2013
The apartment was perfect, great position and well kitted out.
How did you find my local agent? She was brilliant.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Yes we would recommend and also use next year.

Maggie, Richard and Ben Southgate - 1 Apr 2013
Spent a terrific 4 days at this lovely apartment in Nice's old harbour:
- stunning view from the well-equipped and comfortable open plankitchen-dining-sitting room
- spotlessly clean accommodation; comfy beds and luxurious shower-room  
- well situated and conveniently located for local shops and restaurants
- a lovely stroll away from Promenade des Anglaise and all the wonderfulsights and amenities of Nice  
- two minutes' walk to bus stop for Monaco and Monte Carlo, and Villefranche, and a trip along one of the most scenic routes in the world - perfect

Sara Gruet, Surrey, UK -6 Mar 2013
We cannot recommend this lovely apartment highly enough! We had a wonderful few days. The views are simply breathtaking at all hours of day and night. The flat comes with the Wow factor as you walk into it. Having stayed in many rented places over the years, this one is the best equipped that we have ever had. And there is so much to do up and down the coast and in Nice itself. We will definitely be back!!

Rosemary Hanson, London - 4 Mar 2013
This lovely flat was just as described, and very well equipped. Easy to get to via the airport bus, and convenient for buses to other places. Nice welcome. We really enjoyed breakfasting in the large light-filled room looking over the port - lots of boats even in winter -with with steep wooded cliffs opposite. Evening drinks were enhanced by views of the sunset over snow covered mountains. We loved the markets and narrow, winding streets of the Old Town with little shops. Matisse museum is a bus ride away and free. Florian, famous for candying fruits is just across the other side port - they welcome visitors. Would definitely recommend the flat, and Nice.

David Brockie, Ealing, London - 26 Feb 2013
There can be few better views in Nice than the one to be enjoyed from this apartment. The port area is buzzing with cafes and restaurants and it is good to speculate who sets sail on the serious yachts moored there. The apartment has been subject to a recent refurb at a high standard. It is comfortable and well equipped. Spotlessly clean too. Although we didn't cook for ourselves there was everything you need to cater for a full dinner. The owner's restaurant recommendations were well founded. Arrangements were all very efficient, from the helpful notes provided by the owner to the welcome we received from the agent. Both gave very helpful advice to ensure we hit the ground running and got the most from our trip. Would certainly recommend to friends.

Your apartment in Nice is fantastic, the views, the location and it is very well equipped and clean. We would highly recommend it to anyone. It was spotless, tidy and was even nicer than we imagined.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests? We enjoyed La Vigna (good food/reasonable price) and the the Les Pins d'Alep Lebanese was very good and also reasonable price.

Dr Klaus Hollbaher, Graz, Styria Austria - 16 Sep 2012
It was a very nice holiday, we will come again, maybe next year. [The apartment] was clean and nearly perfect.

Dieter Kogler, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, Ireland - 13 Sept 2012
We had a lovely trip, Nice is beautiful and the port apartment certainly set the scene for a beautiful holiday, the view is spectacular and the apartment is up-dated and has all the amenities needed. Apartment was very clean, definitely met our expectations.

Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests? There is a great sandy beach in Villefranche-sur-Mer that makes a great day trip, guests can bring or buy umbrellas, towels and there lots of restaurants and a market.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again?
Most definitely.

Sandra Austin, Sellindge, Kent, UK - 8 Sept 2012
We have had an amazing time thanks for the use of your property; a really lovely position amazing good view, although above restaurants you would never know, I would love to own it !!!

Anne Ross, Helensburgh, nr Glasgow, UK - 6 Sept 2012
Thanks we had a great time and enjoyed our time immeneley - Apartment is well appointed to spend  few days in Nice- So easy to walk from apartment to most parts of town - or great to pick up buses. Stunning views from the apartment and because ti is on 6th floor it is lovely and quiet. i particularly enjoyed sitting in the morning on balcony looking at fanatastic boats and enjoying the vista.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
Highlight that the Gare has a left luggage - which we used as we didn't leave till 8pm.
We ate in a couple of really nice restaurants - but in particular I would recommend  Cosmos in Ville Franche sur Mer - great late afternoon trip to Ville Franche walk round to Cap Ferrat and back to Cosmos for dinner and a train or if early enough a bus back.

Caren Phillips, Trefechan, Aberystwyth, UK - 11 August 2012
We had a superb holiday and fantastic weather to go with it
Was the apartment clean and to your expectations?
Yes, Absolutely spotless. Plenty of utensils in the kitchen and rooms very spacious. Beds lovely and comfortable.
The location is superb and the views from the balcony - spectacular. Air conditioning was a lovely welcome in the evenings!
In the Nice guide book, there is some useful information on particular things to see in the Old Town. Cours Salaya, Rue Rossetti for Fenocchio's ice cream and the various art shops are not to be missed.

Monique Cusson, Quebec, Canada - 31 July 2012
Everything was perfect.
1) essential documents :perfect
2) the local agent was very nice and on time
3) the appartement was very clean
4) yes I would definately recommend this appartment.

David Beadling, Rochdale, Lancashire, UK - 29 July 2012
The apartment was very clean upon arrival.
The apartment was one of the best we have stayed at; I think it exceeded expectations in respect of location/ specification of fittings/ view. I think the shower in the main bathroom was one of the best we have used. The bathroom and living area were larger than expected and, although we were essentially 4 adults we have plenty of space.

Having air conditioning was a bonus (we have stayed in apartments which didn't benefit from this and the air-con made our stay much more comfortable). The complimentary wi-fi again was useful. 
We could have spent all our stay sitting on the balcony admiring the view but would have missed out on the sites of Nice for which we were very well placed, in fact more central than we had anticipated.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again?
Without a doubt.

Valerie Muir, Aberdeen, UK - 24 July 2012
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again?
Absolutely! I would love to come back again. The flat was lovely and the location was just brilliant! The apartment was very clean, comfortable and I would say exceeded our expectations!
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests? You really do not need a car. This was the first time we have stayed for a week without a car and my husband was skeptical. However even he enjoyed using the busses, trams and trains. We found them very easy and cheap to use.
How helpful was my local agent?
She was very helpful. She was there right on time to meet us, accompanied us into the flat and told us everything we needed to know.

Hilary Greaves, Menston, West Yorkshire, UK - 2 July 2012
We had a wonderful time in Nice and we were very comfortable in the apartment!  I particularly enjoyed the view and had my early morning cuppa sitting on the balcony and watching all the boats coming and going!  We felt the big bathroom and fluffy towels were very luxurious!  Sorry we had to use the air conditioning in the evenings but it was extremely hot whilst we were there (although we weren't complaining about the weather).
How helpful was my local agent?
Sandra was great and all the arrangements we made regarding arriving and departing went smoothly, without any problems.
We ate at the Resaurants every night and liked them all--they were so handy!  We weren't so keen on the "Do it yourself" barbecue place--a bit complicated-- but we liked the variety of the menus and prices. We didn't try Les Pecheurs because we thought their prices were too high but the lemon souffle at The Red Donkey was superb!

Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again?
YES without doubt! In fact I should love to go back sometime.

Toni Vesa, Pikkala, Finland - 27 June 2012
Was the apartment clean and to your expectations?
Yes. The apartment met our expectations. The view was great.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Yes.
La Vigna was our favourite restaurant in the port.

Jack Lusted, Crawley, West Sussex, UK - 18 June 2012
We had an amazing trip, thank you very much. The apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived and exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend your apartment to friends and family and would definitely consider staying there again should we return to Nice. The view from the balcony was fantastic and it was really nice to sit out at dusk with a drink and watch the sun set and the lights of the town, hill side and port come on. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable place.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
The Castel restaurant, on the beach front, was very good for the hire of sun beds. We also had lunch there and the food was fantastic. We also ate at the Cafe De La Place in Garibaldi Square twice. This was a lovely restaurant with great food and superb service.

Trudi James, Milton Keynes, UK - 11 June 2012
We had a brilliant time! Didn't realise there was so much to do so not long enough - will be going back for sure!
Was the apartment clean and to your expectations? Yes - exceeded our expectations.

Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again? Definitely! Ideal location for town, beach, touring.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests? We spent the day on Castel beach, and we're really looked after and didn't feel ripped off.  We had a fantastic meal sat outside at Les Pecheurs, one of your recommendations.

Paul Trimble & family, Chiswick, London, UK - 4 June 2012
We had a great time. Been to Nice many times, but not for a while; it's definitely improved with all the transformations. Apartment is both a fantastic base for Nice and the Cote generally. The apartment is very comfortable, perfect for a family or friends staying together. Having a lift is a bonus and, if you can leave the stunning view for a few hours, there is lots to do on the door step.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
I would just emphasise ( if you haven't already) how easy it is to get the bus from the airport to port and buy a 10 journey or weekly card at ticket office at airport before getting on bus, which is so economical. Also stop literally over the road going back to airport (20second walk!) is a request stop (one bus zoomed passed  me!), but not a prob as they  are so regular.

Felicity Wooltorton, Cowongla, New South Wales, Australia - 4 May 2012
Sadly we are departing Nice and the idealic apartment. Thank you for a brilliant stay - it was perfect and we loved every minute. Everything left tidy and clean - do hope we can come to beautiful NIce again.

Janet Espley, Weybridge, Surrey, UK - 18 April 2012
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again?
Apartment was very clean and tidy. Enjoyed the apartment, particularly the views and proximity to centre of town and bus routes. Would consider staying again, even thinking about buying in the area!
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
Best restaurants were Le Bistro Gourmand (now has michelin star) and La Merenda for true French cuisine and atmosphere.

Peter Larsen & family, Roskilde, Denmark - 8 April 2012
We had a fantastic few days in Nice, and we thoroughly enjoyed the flat. All in all the apartment is very functional and with the stunning view of the port it is a please just to get up in the morning and enjoy that view. It is quiet yet in the middle of everything and has all the equipment that one could possibly need.
We will strongly recommend this apartment to others, and should we go back to Nice - which is not unlikely - we would first see if your apartment is available - definately.
Once again thank you for your professionalism and the high standard of the apartment, it has been a pleasure to be your guest.

Martin Storm, Horsholm, Denmark - 25 Feb 2012
Was the apartment clean and to your expectations?
Yes - very nice apartment and great concept. The local agent was super.

Jonathan Clifton, London, UK - 16 Feb 2012
The views over the port through the 3 sets of sliding doors that open on to the balcony are stunning; the balcony is also great for sitting out with a croissant and coffee for breakfast watching the boats come and go below. The port itself is lined with some excellent restaurants and there are several useful shops within a 1 minute walk.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
I can recommend Le Bistro du Port and Zucca Magica (vegetarian and quite eccentric!) restaurants which face the apartment across the port. There are also plenty of restaurants, both French and Italian in the Old Town.
Overall I'd highly recommend the Penthouse and hope to visit again soon!

Gabrielle Walker, Sidmouth, Devon, UK - 3 Nov 2011
Apart from the absence of a shelf by our bed, that's all we could possibly complain about meaning that we were 99% satisfied and not expecting such a modern apartment, lavishly equipped and commanding such an outstanding position in the Port. We appreciated your professional approach to the letting and are only a little concerned that in recommending it to potential customers we may find difficulty (with dates) in returning, which we certainly intend to do.

Chris Chambers, Winchester, UK - 13 Oct 2011
Thank you for use of the Penthouse which we enjoyed enormously. The view from the apartment was wonderful and constantly interesting.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
I think it would be useful to highlight the variety of public transport available on the doorstep both to get from/to the airport (No 98 bus) and to a wide variety of places along the coast and into the hinterland. A few sample itineraries might encourage potential visitors.

Mhairi Brandon, Houston, nr Glasgow, UK - 10 Sept 2011
We had an amazing holiday. Just perfect we will definitely be booking for next year. Many thanks.

Ruth Craven, Manchester, UK - 22 Aug 2011
We really enjoyed the stay and would use the apartment again if we came.

Bernadette Goslin, East Lothian, Scotland - 9 Aug 2011
We had a great holiday and the flat was brilliant, the view was fab and I have very happy memories of eating freshly baked croissants with coffee on the balcony reading the Nice Matin.
How helpful was my local agent?
Mike was great; emailed in advance of our arrival, promptly responded to any emails, answered the phone quickly and was very helpful with local information.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again?

Kazu Egawa, London, UK - 25 July 2011
I would not hesitate to recommend your apartment to any of my friends. Because of its location we felt very relaxed during our stay. Especially in the evening, looking over the port on the balcony, yet, all the convenience are within easy reach on foot.
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
We found this comprehensive web page really useful to find out how to get around.

Brian Howie, Stirlingshire, UK - 2 July 2011
The air conditioning in the bedrooms was fabulous. Having stayed in the area 3 times before we know what it is like trying to sleep without any a.c. The  fabric and furnishing in the flat was excellent, everything that could be required was there. The balcony was the perfect place to chill out after a day in the hot sun, offering a fantastic vista of the ever changing port.We enjoyed the stay in your apartment very much !
Is there any information that you’d like me to pass on to future guests?
Due to location of flat all restaurants are within easy walking distance, all serving good quality food. Buses are cheap (1 Euro per journey) and much more convenient than trying to negotiate the city traffic by car. As the bus stop is just across the road it is simple to get to where you want to go quickly. The market in the old town is particularly good for fresh fruit, meat and vegetables. Quality exceeds that of nearby supermarkets.The small local boulangeries are superior to the supermarket too, there are 3 within a 5 minute walk.
Would you recommend this apartment to your friends or consider using it again?
Yes on both counts.
