"Ok for a short break but not a two week holidat"
We stayed at this apartment for two weeks at the end of June/July. We were met on our arrival by Mary who explained the set-up. At this point we had to pay her €100 for cleaning and laundry and … More
We appreciate your comments and hope you enjoyed a lovely holiday despite your inconveniences.
Had you contacted our (english speaking) local manager, who is available throughout your stay, she would happily have shown you how to use the cooker hob and improve the shower drainage and any other day-to-day problems to ensure your stay is comfortable.
Our T&Cs are well explained in all correspondence and advertising before and after you book so there are no hidden unexpected costs.
I stay in the apartment regularly and when I left a few weeks ago everything was as it should be. Yes, our silver chesterfield armchair is now looking a bit shabby, but is still so very comfortable.
Research shows that one of the many charms of Vieux Nice is its bustling lively alleys filled with artisan shops, cafes, restaurants, bars. Most visitors fall in love with it for its uniqueness and history, and accept that along with this will come noise, however as I and our many guests have found, St Francois is generally very quiet at night.
The seagulls? sorry, they're out of our control :)

Our stay at St. Francois couldn't have been any better. The apartment itself is a good size with all of the comforts of home. It's location in the old town, with easy access to the streets, … More

We stayed here for 10 days as a holiday and a base for visiting the monaco gp. Fantastic location in the old town but tucked away enough that it wasn't noisy at night. Very handy for the buses (&… More

"Comfy apartment, convenient location and a friendly welcome."
This delightful apartment had everything we needed for a lovely holiday in Nice.
It was quiet with a very comfortable bed and we slept really well. The bathroom was roomy and the shower hot. The well equipped kitchen had all we needed and the shops were really close to buy supplies.
The location was excellent with just a short walk for the tram or bus. We are hoping to return to Nice for another holiday and we hope to stay here again.

"Very nice, great location!"
This is a wonderful little flat in a perfect location. We stayed here for the month of February, while my wife attended Alliance Française language school, a 15min walk away. Nice Carnival was a bonus; it's an impressive family-friendly production.
Very much as advertised, the flat itself is well maintained and well equipped. The queen bed is excellent. The WiFi works great, as does the shower. The stairs up to the flat are easy to negotiate -- not steep or shallow. The kitchen is tiny, but it works. We cooked most all our own meals. Good security. The owner, Athena, and local contact, Mary, are both very helpful and accommodating.
It would be hard to beat the location. We loved being in the old town with it's narrow streets and small shops. There are lots of grocery options within a few steps. Good quiet location just off Place St Francois. Easy access to buses and tram. We can recommend pre-booking airport transfers with Med-Tour, if you do not want to take the bus.

Small compact apartment, well equipped, with a great location right in the old town. No worries about restaurants or even buy in food supplies if you want them. Walking distance to everywhere, we loved it. Laundry very close. I guess if I had a suggestion it would be for a little more lighting in the bedroom... Mary, their contact, is very helpful and we had no problems at all contacting her upon our arrival. No problems with bond refunds.
Great stay, have fun.

"Ideal location with great value for money"
I had never been to Nice before, and didn't know what to expect, but I really can't imagine somewhere better placed for my first experience of this wonderful city. It's located on the edge of the old town which is full of wonderful narrow streets filled with shops, however the apartment was really close to the bus stop which meant that we had no trouble finding it, and didn't have far to go carrying our bags. The square outside had a fish market each day, it's above a wine shop and next to a boulangerie so it is a vibrant location full of hustle and bustle.
We were met by Mary who gave us all the info we needed and more, and the cupboards were stocked with some basics - and as we had mentioned it was our honeymoon there was also a bottle of wine chilling, bouquet of flowers and single rose on our pillow!!
The apartment was very clean, nice furnishings, well stocked with kitchen equipment, and nice shower room. The bedroom is quite small but somehow manages to contain a nice large comfy bed and plenty of storage space - it really felt like someone allowing you to share their home!
There was a really helpful guide listing lots of locations to visit including really helpful info like bus numbers and journey durations. However the welcome presence of reliable wifi allowed us to do our own research and planning too!
The bus stops are all within a few minutes walking distance as are three supermarkets, a multitude of shops and too many restaurants to count! The beach is 5-8 minutes walk - through the wonderful streets and Cours Saleya market.
This apartment was perfectly located and allowed us to really get a real feel for living in Nice, we hope to return next year and will have no problem contacting Athena again to make use of this little gem!

"Well located and in old town"
We enjoyed the location as it is in St Francois square but the apartment is a tad small and the cooker gives out minimal heat which makes self catering difficult! We were also slightly perturbed by the dossers seeking refuge from the red cross office opposite our apartment. However, it is well located for the old town and is quiet and the greeter mary was lovely. We enjoyed our time in Nice but it comes with a wealth warning, you'll need lots of euros!!
Thanks for letting us know about the stove. we will get that checked out immediately. The Red Cross offers free medical treatment to those who cant afford it, but rarely are they so busy that it creates a problem.
Glad you enjoyed your holiday
