Nice is only an hour away from the ski resorts, and it's close enough to Italy for you to be able to take a day trip to the alpine Italian villages or to the Riviera. It is possible in the winter to catch for 8 euros an early morning bus to the ski resort and go back at the close of day.
Winter sun at the beach and a couple of days skiing- perfect!
*The Port is an attractive touristic resort. The Old Town has romantic small streets, climbing to the Castle Park (Colline du Château), From the hill, superb views of the Coast and the city. Downtown, good places to eat socca (local speciality), sea-food, vegetarian, asian and italian specialities.

"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"
Great home from home with very good amenities in the apartment. Great location and well stocked apartment. Good sized bed and very quiet bedroom and cool apartment out of the sun. Small shower (in wid… More
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.

"Great Location with a lovely terrace"
We have just returned from a lovely holiday in Nice. We found the apartment Celeste to be in a great location. 5 mins walk to Place Garbaldi, to the tram and bus system, the old part of town and the port. We had 2 lovely trips to Eze and Ventimiglia. We got a lovely welcome from Charles and Gracie. Good directions etc. The apartment had everything we needed. The best part of the apartment was the terrace. Bit of care needed in accessing it. We really enjoyed our stay in Nice - so much to see and do! We hope to return some day and Apartment Celeste will be our first choice.
When the guests are so friendly, the owners can only be in the same mood !
Charles and Gracie.

Thank you for your appreciations and observations. We take care to greet personally our guests, and to look after the cleanliness of the apartment. The roof-terrace is really its main point. We try to change it in a "pièce à vivre", as we say in french, and in a small garden at the same time.
Thank you, also, for saying how many steps there are to go to the home Celeste! We never calculated their number, but specified in our description in the website that the building is without lift, like most of the historical buildings in the Vieux-Nice. Nevertheless, there are only two flours to go up to the sky !
You are right saying that the apartment is not very convenient for three adult people. So, we'll specify in future that the additional bed in the sofa-bed is above all suitable for a child.
Charles and Graciela.

"This is a gem!"
Apartment Celeste is in a wonderful location, near the chateau park, the port, the promenade des Anglais, and a short walk to Place Garibaldi and the "1 euro" transportation system. There is so much going on in Nice - we focused on music events and walked to a different event every evening. No need for a car. The apartment itself is charming, tastefully decorated, comfortable and well-equipped in a quiet neighborhood. We would return to this apartment in future visits.
We are doing the best to satisfy our guests. The apartment is really in a excellent location, with a advantage not frequent in the center of the city : a large terrace, useful in all seasons, with magnificent views on the Castle Park, and all the necessary to lunch or dinner, or take a drink.
Beaches at 5 minutes, and culture, entertainment in all the area, always walking ! Car is not necessary.
Charles and Graciela
