Winter sun at the beach and a couple of days skiing- perfect!

"A gem, above the rooftops of the Old Port..."
This is a compact and surprisingly well appointed apartment with a spacious roof terrace offering amazing views across the Vieux Port and the mountains behind Nice. Despite its central position it is quiet and airy with great restaurants only 2 minutes walk away. Direct bus to the airport within 5 minutes walk, plus other great transport connections. Attractively furnished, the apartment offers a comfortable and relaxing stay in an intriguing part of this fascinating city.

"Recommend this Quirky Flat with a ROOF TERRACE"
This flat is ideally placed in the Port area , which is very quiet, in an atmospheric French building. It is very close to both the Promenade and the old town and bus stops. The bus service is great for exploring further afield. For us the living space, bedroom, kitchen and roof terrace were ideal. The roof terrace was a great retreat after a hectic day on the move. The galley steps to the roof terrace are wide and very manageable for anyone of average fitness.
The kitchen is well equipped, lots of hot water and a washing machine! The shower is a wee bit tight but more than adequate.

"Great location with fantastic roof terrrace"

Many thanks for your appreciations. We have previously specified in our advertising the small discomforts you point out : the galley type stairs to go up to the terrace, and the narrow bathroom (but the shower head not so low, because it is 6 feet 3 inches heigh).
Our building is ancient, historical, the floors are tall, each one with two flights, so to go to the second floor, there are really four flights...
We project to fit out the terrace with a maximum of items to avoid the inconvenience of carrying them up.

Excellent apartment. Everything you could need. Roof terrace was an added bonus. Charles and Graziela were lovely , so helpful. Excellent location, very central, within easy access of most places. Couldn't ask for better. We will be back.
