5/5 Superb, the most central place you can rent in Nice - Ms V. from the Netherlands, July 20.
Overall this is a great apartment in such a great location and having stayed here twice already I would not hesitate to go back, if the terrace issues were attended to (total renovation due before 2020). Location and roof terrace were the best features. Joie de Vivre were such a joy to book through particularly Paul Rhodes who was amazingly helpful going above and beyond in my time of need, not to mention Sandra the rep for the apartment, who was also a great asset and very helpful - Mrs H. from Glasgow, July 2019 (third visit).
Just come back from a fantastic time in Nice!! This apartment was amazing, everything you needed and more! Because we were so central we could travel anywhere and we did without a hitch! I have to say a massive thank you to Paul Rhodes who made booking this holiday so simple and to Sandra our host for being so helpful you have both done a brilliant job - thank you! Will I go back to Nice - definitely - Miss M. from Manchester, July 19.
We spent a wonderful short break in a nice apartment (3 bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathroom) with a great roof terrace. The location is terrific: View of the historic old town and side views of the sea. The communication with landlord and local agent was straightforward, fast and very accommodating. We will be back again !! Thank you-)) - Mrs F. from Germany, Sept 18.
This is our fourth time to stay in this apartment and have always enjoyed our time there, close to the beach and many restaurants and shops.The best feature was the spacious roof terrace and the proximity to the beach. The property was very well equipped - all that was needed was available. Paul and Sandra who deal with the booking and meeting are very helpful and professional at all times - Mrs M. from Antrim, July 18 (4th visit)
Hello Paul! Thank you for your help and thanks to owner of Apt Passiflore for our good vacation. Thanks for good weather, warm water, suntan on the face of my daughter. :)))) We have had excellent time in Nice. We wish you good luck and future success in your job. Best regards - Mrs Z. from St.Petersburg, April 18 (4th visit)
Hello Paul! We really liked the apartment, and especially the terrace! Thank you! We had a wonderful holiday! - Ms A. from Kazakhstan, July 17.
We liked the balcony and the giant mall within a five minute walk was perfect for shopping. If you walk straight to the beach you end up at the water sports station where you can do all crazy stuff like parachute. We feel like the price was fitting the accommodation and it was perfect for a chilled vacation near beach and center of the city. No problem to get anywhere within minutes. But it is no place to go by car, parking really was a disaster. There is no parking space at all especially with a big car. You can not drive a big car in a parking house. Mr R. from Germany, Aug 17
Absolutely wonderful apartment. Had everything we needed and the facilities were excellent. Sandra was very helpful and replied to our questions very quickly. The only thing that was not sufficient was that the doorbell didn`t work after a new door was installed downstairs.
