Wonderful little apartment, tastefully arranged, marvellously equipped in the midst of the old town of Nice. Leaving the house you drop into one of the most beautiful lanes, animated by traditional shops, markets and restaurants. Warm welcome by the owner, who provides you with a large amount of tips and hints about activities and events. Largely recommended!

Management response:

We had a wonderful holiday and the apartment helped to make it comfortable and relaxing. The apartment is very central but its location also means it is quiet. Francoise met us and helped us settle in. She provided guidebooks which were invaluable in helping us get around the city. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Many thanks.

Management response:
