We spent five days in John Durnford's apartment in November 2017. Booking is a doddle and John's comprehensive instructions make it easy to get to the apartment, however you intend to travel. We would recommend the taxi to and fro' the airport. The apartment is comfortable and particularly well-equipped, with everything you need for self-catering (although you would have to be a stoic to ignore the attractions of Nice's restaurants) The first thing that strikes you is the fabulous view over Nice and the lovely balcony to enjoy it from. The bathroom has a walk-in shower, the seating area light and airy and the bed is comfortable. The port is a 10 minute walk away and the old town 20 minutes, but we wholeheartedly recommend the public transport system, especially using a five euro day pass. Two well-stocked supermarkets are a ten minute walk away, but Carrefour was our choice as you walk downhill with the shopping!
My wife and I stayed here 3 days as a part of our honeymoon. We had a wonderful stay. The location is great to walk to the port, old Nice, Villefranche-sur-Mer, a supermarket(if you’re on a budget) as well as much more. John was great from the day we booked. He went out of his way to find out our interests and give us things to do that fit our personality’s and likes. While we loved Nice, our favorites spot was on the patio looking out over the port. Would definitely reccomens. Thanks John!
This was our 3rd stay and have booked again. We love the views over the harbour, the bay & Mediterranean and the city.
The apartment has everything you ever need inc. excellent Wi-Fi, swimming pool and parking.
Easy access to everything Nice has to offer as well as Villafranche, Cap Ferrat, Monaco either by car or bus. John is an excellent host and all arrangements very easy and friendly.
Prior to our visit to Nice we received lots of helpful information from John the owner about the apartment and the local area. Also great communication during our stay.
The apartment is well equipped and certainly big enough for two adults and a teenager. The views from the apartment are spectacular, looking across the port. Also located in a quiet area. The pool area was clean and relatively quiet for this time of the year.
Great location. 10 minutes walk to the sea or port. 10 minutes walk to the supermarket. Easy to travel around as the bus stop is right outside of the apartment. 1.50 for a single travel (for example to Monaco - bus from the Port). Visiting Eze Village is a must.
We would certainly stay in the apartment again.
Lovely apartment in a great location to explore the Cote d’Azur. Walkable to the centre of Nice, 10 mins from supermarket and a bus stop outside to take you along the coast, very handy and cheap, the train station is also walkable. The balcony has stunning views of Nice, the port and Baie des Anges. Good size pool, ideal to use in the morning if you like the shade. Recommend going to Villefranche just along the coast. The owners have thought of everything that might be needed during a stay. Would recommend for a couple.
Our 4th year staying at this fabulous apartment. Clean, cool, A/C, totally furnished and with all the accoutrements, TV, WIFI, great kitchen. Stunning ocean views and excellent location on Mont Boron a very comfortable neighborhood of Nice just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, yet if you wish just minutes from downtown Nice Proper and Old Town with its quaint shops and great restaurants. Bus stops just in front of apartment. Head east to Villefranche sur Mer, Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, Eze, Monaco, or Menton. The large apartment balcony offers stunning views overlooking the Old Port for your lunch or dining pleasure at home. Nearby groceries ether at top or bottom of the hill totally easy accessibility 10 to 15 minute walk or don't forget to use the bus, very inexpensive. Again the local beaches are just a 15th minute walk down the hill. We consider this our home away from home, can't help but keep coming back.
Very nice flat well located next to restaurant and night life, but in quiet area. The flat has everything you need and such an amazing view!!! You'll feel very comfortable.
