Apartment was great . We loved the way it was laid out and the design. The apartment was very clean and Sandra was extremely helpful in explaining all the details.

Hello Paul, ............ first I must tell you that after booking my own holidays for the past five years, that this year we hit the jackpot. It’s always a worry when you rely on others but you came up trumps with this one. I’ve not even stayed in hotels this good and we never go lower than 4/5 stars. The very, very, best apartment I’ve stayed in. We would like a different location next year, with a sea view, plenty to see, and lots of shops, are you up for the challenge. Just one little niggle, could have done with more pillows. All the very best, Mr P. from Cornwall, June 12.
Good (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Mr V. from Barcelona, May 12.
Excellent arrival and departure service - thank you Sandra, much appreciated! Have already recommended you to friends planning a visit to europe!! The apartment was very spacious, very well equipped and comfortable. The views were outstanding- we will stay again. (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Mr R. from Australia, Apr 12.
The apartment is in the Port neighborhood, which is close enough but also far away from immediate beach or inner city scene. We were here in April, and rain and cool winds prevented us from spending any time on the balcony, though the views through the windows were at times beautiful, facing the sea (where the ferries and other cruise ships come in to dock out one window and a hilly green historic park on the side), and also annoying after a time (when the ferries came in German and other cruise ships and their came in with their blazing engines and loudspeakers). The spirit of the place is very positive with lots of light and an unshut kitchen. But we really recommend the owners invest in a total upgrade in the kitchen and overall rennovation snd furniture.For example, the nice thing about an apartment is the possibility to prepare breakfast or simple meals. Yet there wasn`t a decent knife and the coffee machine and all appliances were at least 15-20 years old. Wouldn`t cost - a month`s rent or so - and the place vastly improved. The neighborhood is really great, and probably more authentic than living in central Nice. There is a wonderful shop with prepared foods on the right side as you go up the Rue Stalingrad with delicious Nice specialties to take away and a good bakery just beyond. The bus stops right in front and there are bikes for let around the corner. All in all a good experience. (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Satisfied - Mrs F from Vienna, Apr 12. (JDV say - we revisited the property the following week and found the kitchen and its appliances to be very satisfactory we also advised the owner on a few further enhancements).
Good needs simpler instruction to work tv equipment fine (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Dr K. from Glasgow, Sept 11.
There were no "hidden disappointments" all was as described or better and Sandra the local rep. was most pleasant and helpful. (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Mr W. from Cardiff, April 11.
Hi Paul, we`re back home from our week`s holiday at Apartment Euphorbe in Nice....and very nice it was too. The view from the balcony was superb and it was well situated for all amentities. All four of us really enjoyed ourselves...the weather was generally superb......There were a couple of relatively minor issues which in general did not spoil a much needed break - we would certainly recommend JDV and Apartment Euphorbe to others and we are trying to find a slot for ourselves again there next year. With thanks for your assistance and advice with the booking - Mr & Mrs M. from Somerset, Oct 10.

Excellent and exactly as advertised. (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Mr M. from Lancashire, Aug 10.
Extremely spacious, comfortable with great views of Port of Nice (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Mr N. from County Down, July 10.
This apartment is extremely spacious and has superb 270 degree views of sea, hills and port. If you enjoy people watching and just watching the world go by this is the ideal place. The apartment was brilliantly well-equipped with everything we needed and more. We had an excellent stay here and would highly recommend both the apartment and this company for their excellent customer service and friendly and polite way of dealing with our every need. The owner who met us on arrival gave lots of information about the area and the apartment and was really friendly, as was the agent who came at the end of the stay. Balcony was great - we spent most of the time out there when we were at the apartment - great for a long lazy breakfast watching the world go by. It gets the sun from 10am right into the evening. The balcony could do with more than one sun lounger seat though to make it more comfy. The area was in walking distance of a small beach and about a 10 minute walk from the main beaches and 20 mins stroll from the old town. The main marina part of the port is just a 2 minute walk with some great restaurants and a really lively Irish bar - Miss H. from Tyne & Wear, May 10.
Flat is gorgeous what amazing views. I love it so much here would be happy to come every winter. By the way is there any avail left for this apart for a week in the summer? - Mrs B. from Berks, Nov 09.
Dear Paul, we were very satisfied with your service and quality of accomodation. We will be pleased if we could use your service in the future, best regards - Mr O. from Slovakia - July 09.
