About the local area
Local shops can be found just 50 metres away, a boulangerie 100 metres, a supermarket 150 metres and a wonderful restaurant on the sea front just 20 metres. You also have a great selection of restaurants to choose from all around the port area and in the nearby 'old town of Nice. There is a great choice of shopping in the department stores, the designer shops and gift shops of Nice.
Local markets are held in Nice and Villefranche. The most well known is held in the ‘Cours Saleya’ in Nice, adjacent to the old town, and offers an array of olives, flowers and fresh produce. There is also an antiques market held here on a Monday.
Sporting activities in the area are abundant– there is sailing, diving, fishing, water sports, jogging and rollerblading along the Promenade des Anglais, and of course the beaches. You are also in very close proximity to the mountains and hills of the Alpes Maritimes region here, which makes walking and cycling very popular.
Beaches can be found just 100 metres away and right along the seafront of Nice, as far as the airport. From here you can enjoy the sunshine glittering on the azure blue waters of the Med, watch the many boats crossing the ‘Baie des Anges’, and see the planes and helicopters coming in and out of the airport.
The ski stations of Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron are approximately 1 hour’s drive away if you fancy a couple of days winter sports!
Getting around is very easy from here. You have the bus and train services, which have a great network along the coast and further inland - the nearest bus stop to this apartment is 20 metres away. A car is really not necessary here.
Sightseeing is endless; you have the historical old town of Nice; the restaurants and yachts in the port of Nice; a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais; the views from the Chateau of Nice; the Museums of Art in Nice; the animals & plants at Parc Phoenix; the charming Mediterranean towns of Villefranche-sur-Mer and Beaulieu-sur-Mer; the zoo and coastal walk around Cap-Ferrat; the perched village at Eze; the casinos and port of Monaco; and the Italian border town of Menton. It is also possible to cross over the border to experience the flavour of Italy!
Other entertainment includes shopping, the casinos & nightlife of Nice, boat trips, cinemas, wine tasting, helicopter rides, or just good old relaxing on the beach!
Very satisfied - Mrs A. from Norway, June 15 (2nd visit).
The apartment was good, with a very good location. Internally everything was there that you needed except extra pillows as previously noted by another person and as no air con, fans are a must in the heat we experienced and we have decided not to rent abroad without air con or fans being supplied (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Satisfied,  service was very good and Paul & Sandra were very helpful with any questions we had - Mrs M. from Perthshire, August 15.
Exellent service (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Satisfied. It was our own mistake that we did not check that the appartment had Aircondition - but it has not - Mr S. from Denmark, July 15.
It was exactly as described in the literature. The area the apartment was in was perfect for us. The apartment was light and airy with great views overlooking the port area. Apartment had everything that you need in it. If there was anything that could be added to improve the comfort in the apartment it would have been another couple of pillows and some more comfortable chairs on the balcony, but these are only minor points. Great service from Sandra who met us at the apartment. She was very accommodating in changing our entry time to an earlier time, and responding very quickly when the light fused. Loved watching the ferries and yachts coming and going. Sorry to be back home but at least it was warm in Edinburgh when we got off the plane. Will definitely be returning to Nice as didn`t have the time in one week to see and do everything that we would like. Thanks for your help - Mrs M. from Brechin, Sept 2014.
The apartment was in a great location. Very close to the Port and maybe a 20 minute stroll to the Old Town. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our week in the South of France. (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Mrs H. from London, June 2014.
The apartment was lovely, modern and clean. I didn`t expect all the steps up to it though as the advert said it had a lift. This was a chore with a buggy. (JDV : the steps are outside in the communal gardens, from the pavement up to the communal door. Once in the building however there is a lift up to the apartment). The patio only got the sun in the late afternoon which was a pity. However all in all we had a wonderful holiday. (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Satisfied - Mrs B. from Kildare, August 2013.
Very good (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Mrs A. from Norway, June 13.
Thank you, Paul. I`m glad to say that we had a really good stay and liked both the apartment and the area very much. I have a good mind to use your agency again at some point, maybe even for a shorter stay just for me in the fall or in the spring (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied- Mr S. from London, July 10.
