Thank you for your kind comments.
The address is on Rue De France, so close to everything! The sea, beach and old town, but without the noise! We don't charge for normal cleaning, electricity or water like other owners.
The apartment is also only 10 minutes via bus from the airport (Nice International Airport) if you take a number 98 bus for a few euros (can use this ticket all day!!). Also we are about a 15 minute walk from train station, or 5 mins in a taxi.
We have many return guests; please see our guest comments.
It was very popular last year and this year looks the same so far.
Our website below has loads of info and booking form information. The website has guest comments, booking information, pictures and maps.
The apartment is situated just off the Promenade des Anglais and the beach, which is just off a quiet side street, called Rue de France in the centre of Nice. But close nearby to all restaurants, cafes and etc. The building is a listed 1870's building, so there are no night clubs, bars, etc,underneath the apartment to make it noisy, in accordance with French Law.
There is a small french bakery, on the street, which does gorgeous breads, croissants and coffees! There is also a good sensible cafe night life in the area. To give it that vibrant buzz.
The apartment sleeps four, and has four separate beds, one of which can be made into two large. Five by arrangement. The apartment has a TV, DVD, CD system, amazing French provincial marble bathroom and shower area with a square sink, kitchen dining area, freezer and fridge, cooker, kettle, large French airy windows, safe deposit box and air-conditioning even though the apartment is nice and cool in the summer months. All cutlery, plates and etc. Are provided. There is also a guest book and information in the apartment as well. To give a very French South of France feel.
The apartment is in a fantastic location, only 10 mins from the airport, either by taxi or bus. I would personally take the bus, which only costs a few Euros per person and the ticket lasts all day, for the whole of the Nice area. Really easy with luggage as well. As is only a 2 minute walk from the bus-stop on the sea front, beach and palm trees. Very central and near the Old Town!
You could also hire a car? There is loads of parking. But to be honest, the train, bus, and yacht services are fantastic to get to Cannes, St. Tropez, Antibes, Monte-Carlo, and even Italy. For instance, you can be in Monte-Carlo or Cannes in 15-20 mins by train! We have a special arrangement with a parking company and Irfan and his team can provide cheaper parking than other areas.
Hope to see you again soon!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. It takes effort to do this.
The apartment is only 10 - 15 minutes via bus from the airport. Then just get off at either Sporting Plage or Blue beach, cross the road, and then you are there, at, "Appartement Bord de la Mer".
We are close to a lovely french bakery. The apartment is light and airy, with lovely large french windows and traditional Niscoise shutters. The wi-fi is super fast to make our/your friends and work Collegues jealous via Skype or face time.
I personally love the bathroom in this apartment with a great shower and lovely square sink. I'm also very fussy about getting a good nights sleep, so have made the beds as comfortable as possible.
We just wish that we could stay as long as some our long term renters e.g 1 - 2 months! We work hard to keep it clean and make your stay as comfortable and fun as possible.
Richard & Family :)
