Location description from owner
The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region
If you have time and can pull yourself away from the charm of Nice, then I definitely recommend that you explore a few of the areas outside of Nice. The French Riviera or Cote D'Azur as also known is a magical place with so much diversity on offer. Apart from the glamour, champagne lifestyle, and sumptuous yachts - this is only skimming the surface. Where else can you have the extravagance in winter of skiing in the morning and walking by the sea in the afternoon? Explore the beautiful coastal landscapes dotted with small beaches, jagged rock formations and incredible sparkling azure mediterranean which can be seen by car, train, bus, cycling or even walking. If you can tear yourself away from the views then look inland and you will more than like see pretty hilltop villages perched high and proud. These sunkissed and historical hill towns are brimming with culture and history. Take time to appreciate the magnificent architecture of the Belle Epoque, Bourgois and Art Deco buildings to the Italian influenced buildings of the older quarters - colourful buildings with their pretty colourful wooden shutters. Visit the Picasso museum in Antibes, shop till you drop in Cannes, take a boat to St. Tropez, visit the Palace in Monaco, walk the enchanting path around Cap Ferrat, enjoy Sunday brunch in Eze, make your own French perfume in Grasse, explore the many galleries of St. Paul de Vence, visit the vineyards of Bellet and feel at home in Nice. And if you really want to live like a local then playing petanque (type of bowls played mostly by the older/retired generation) and drink pastis (anise-flavoured liqueur and aperitif ).
If you haven't been to Nice before then you are in for a treat. Nice has one of the most famous coastlines on the Cote d'Azur, the Baie des Anges. Surrounded by hills and mountains, Nice has a wonderful climate all year round.The main reason holiday makers choose to stay in this area is the proximity to the beach and Promenade but also the stunning views of the azure sea. Nice really does have everything to offer and I guess that's why tourists keep returning.Nice is a warm, vibrant and fascinating city with everything to offer the visitor with its beaches, restaurants, art galleries, night life and museums. It even has its own Roman amphitheatre in the quarter of Cimiez with the Matisse museum right next door.Nice (old town) is so charming with lots of pretty cobbled streets lined with shops, bakeries, restaurants concocting delicious smells.

Surrounded by hills and mountains, Nice has a wonderful climate all year round.The main reason holiday makers choose to stay in this area is the proximity to the beach and Promenade but also the stunning views of the azure sea. There is a superb selection of local shops, patisseries and small supermarkets nearby. The famous Promenade des Anglais is literally on your doorstep, and several private beaches where a sun bed and parasol can be hired on a daily basis - there are also public beaches if you just want to enjoy the beach for an hour or so without paying sun lounger fees.Place de Massena is the main central square which lies between the old and the new town. The Old Town is a maze of narrow streets, squares, little restaurants and fascinating shops. Visits to the Antiques Market (Monday) and the weekday flower and vegetable markets are not to be missed. The Nice Carnival in February is spectacular, as is the summer Jazz festival with top acts. During summer Nice has always something special going on, don't be surprised if you see some fireworks as the Major of Nice likes nothing better than fireworks to celebrate and event. Public transport is easy and reasonably priced.The airport bus runs from the airport and along the Promenade des Anglais before turning towards Place Massena and then the bus station at the Old Town. Other buses run frequently along the Promenade also with plenty of stops along the way. There is a good bus services to all the surrounding local towns hilltop villages or take the train if you prefer.

- Very Good
The best way that I can describe our satisfaction with the "San Diego" apartment is that my wife and I have stayed there 3 times and have already made a reservation to return next year. We have stayed in 3 other apartments in Nice, and this apartment is by far the best of the lot. First of all, the view from the living room, dining room and the kitchen area is directly onto the Promenade and the Mediterranean. For any early risers, you can enjoy the sunrise directly over the sea. Unlike the majority of apartments along the Promenade which can be quite narrow and almost tunnel-like, this apartment has double wide living area and a balcony furnished with lovely furniture. It is wonderful to soak up the ambiance of the Riviera on the balcony. while having a drink or even a light meal. Yes, there is traffic along the Promenade, but the double pane windows allow for a quiet apartment. All the appliances are first rate. The furniture is quite comfortable and more like the furnishings in a home with nice art work than in a rental unit. There are 2 decent sized bedrooms with excellent mattresses. The bathroom and the shower room allow our guests to have their own facilities. While the shower room is compact, it includes a toilet and sink as well as a great shower. To get to the center of town requires a 20 minute walk along the Promenade which is quite pleasant. For anyone who prefers not to walk, there are buses that run on the Promenade and on the rue de France directly behind the building. The frequent buses will take you anywhere in Nice for a mere 1 euro when you buy a 10 trip ticket. (We prefer to walk so that we have less guilt when eating all the delicious Provencal cuisine that is available). The area has nearby supermarkets and bakeries and almost any other type of shop. There is now a fairly large 'mini supermarket' almost directly behind the building. The owner clearly is interested in pleasing his guests, so there are constant improvements and additions to the apartment. All the shutters and the awning are now automated; the apartment has been freshly painted; closet space has been added to the second bedroom; and the mattresses have been replaced. The local contact, Roni, has been 100% reliable and couldn't be nicer to deal with. All in all, it is an excellent find.
“A lot of almosts”
Stayed at the San Diego last May primarily for the Monaco Grand Prix, but also to see more of Nice as we had been there for only one day on a cruise a few years ago. This apartment is somewhat difficult to review as it was almost exactly what we (my wife and I were traveling with another couple) were after--it's not easy to find 2 bedrooms with two full baths, not just a WC-- but a few annoying issues made it fall short. First off, it's quite roomy, with a large foyer and closets upon entry, the bedrooms to the left and the living area/kitchen to the right. What steals the show, of course, is the wall of windows/French doors opening onto the sea, and the living/dining/kitchen areas are brightly lit, well furnished and comfortable (must note here also that this area is also brightly lit in the dead of night as there's a streetlight right outside at balcony level). The kitchen was a nice functional workspace with modern appliances and pleasant lighting, the cabinets well stocked with staples. The only maddening thing was the lack of a way to make decent coffee--the actual coffee maker didn't work and the strainer on the French press was coming loose, rendering any cup made in it "chunky style". We had to resort to instant. The balcony was a most pleasant place, with comfortable furnishings including a large table, and of course that fabulous sea view. The downside here was the traffic noise, which being right on the very busy Promenade des Anglais and on the second floor was quite loud at almost all times--the uncountable small scooters sounded like leaf blowers right next to your ear. Shutting the balcony doors did a very good job of cutting the noise, however. The beds and bedrooms were quite comfortable and air-conditioned so windows didn't have to be left open, and being in the back of the building on a service/garage space were significantly quieter anyway. Storage was rather awkward--no drawers, but shelf and hanging space in the master, drawers but no hanging space in the second--but reasonably sufficient. The hallway bathroom (serving the second bedroom) was a fairly typical 3 piece and a useful size, but the ensuite in the master was a cruel joke. It was one room containing a wet shower (i.e., no curtain or anything separating it from the rest of the room so the sink and toilet got wet), a sink about the size of a shot glass with no place to store anything--which I suppose was all to the good considering it would have gotten wet anyway--and a toilet which faced the sink and provided all of about 6 inches of legroom as a result, requiring any serious business to all be done in the hallway bath and therefore imposing on our friends' space. The neighborhood was pleasant and access to necessities was not bad, but it is several blocks from the heart of town and the bulk of the restaurants/attractions. As to the 180 euro cleaning/greeting fee, although we did know about it in advance it's a lot of cash to have to bring with you for that purpose, and I see no reason it couldn't have been included in the rent. Overall this apartment was a nice enough place to be, and with the addition of a functional coffee maker and reconfiguration of the ensuite the rating would go up at least one star.
Thank you for your feedback and it sounds like you overall enjoyed your stay. I am so sorry to hear that you had to resort to instant coffee especially when I had left some nice coffee from the local coffee shop in the old town. I wish I had known during your stay as I would've replaced the French press. It's important to us that all guests to enjoy their stay in our home and these little things mean a lot - especially that cup of morning coffee to start your day. I hope that we can entice you back as we have made some improvements throughout. The apartment has had a complete repaint and freshen up including the ensuite which also has has an extractor fan fitted. The second bedroom has its own wardrobe with plenty of hanging space. The main bedroom has a new bed with high quality mattress for the perfect nights sleep and new headboard. A new electric shutter has been fitted to fall in line with the rest of the apartment. And of course a new french press/ сafetière............
“Lovely apartment with a great seafront position and balcony view”
We were a party of two couples, and we think we chose well as this apartment is spacious and light and made for a comfortable few days exploring the lovely city of Nice and beyond. The climate was mild enough for short sleeves, so the early season timing was also OK and meant that the rental price was still reasonable. We even managed some sea-swims, though most promenaders were doubtless thinking we were mad! The beds and pillows were comfortable, and the bedrooms quiet as they were at the rear of the block overlooking a yard and parking area. The best vistas are definitely to be had from the living room and large balcony - which is as it should be. One bedroom, the twin, has an electric shutter, but no wardrobe in the room which was an issue as the only real clothes storage was located in the entrance hall and therefore not overly private for dressing. Also, this is not an en-suite so bear this in mind depending on your party's circumstances and preferences. The double ensuite room, however, has a wardrobe as well as private washing facilities The kitchen is fairly well equipped, although we ate out most of the time and only used it for snacks and take-away eating. Vera, who met us and saw us in, was delightful, welcoming and most helpful throughout our stay. We arrived with an element of concern as we had only recently spotted a massive surcharge of €180 over and above the advertised rental rate which, over a 3 day stay, made a big and unexpected difference to the overall cost. This is meant to cover linen, cleaning and a welcome pack comprising a bottle, etc, but (having run holiday lets ourselves) this is still a large sum, and it needed at least two clicks to find the surcharge on the Trip Advisor site through which we booked. That said, Vera was very open-minded and accommodating to our concerns, but we suggest you ensure you have identified all compulsory charges well in advance of booking. We also feel that TripAdvisor should be more transparent in how rentals are represented, particularly when they are non-discretionary. Another recommendation, if you are planning to arrive by taxi from the airport, is to use a prepaid voucher system, such as Viajes Alameda/Shuttledirect. There are several stories about unexpected surcharges (a theme emerging!) and this was not only better value than a random airport car, but much easier and totally transparent - less stress all round. Overall, a very good apartment which we would thoroughly recommend, for a relaxing holiday in a wonderful city! Overall
“AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFE TIME”
