The small appartement is in walking distance to the beach, restaurants and a shopping area. The center of Nice is about a 10 minutes drive by car away. Everything in the appartement is tidy and modern. The building complex is calm, so is the neighbourhood. Enjoy!

My mother stayed a full week at Joanna’s apartment and I went to visit her 3 days. The apartment was cosy, peaceful and located near the beach but also close to the train station which was very convenient if you are looking to visit cities like Antibes, Nice, Monaco and so many others. There is a everything you need around the place; restaurants cafes and grocery stores. The apartment is very well equipped, you can definitely cook. We never got the chance to meet Joanna but it really didn’t matter because the communication was excellent and she was also so flexible regarding check-out time, thank you so much for everything Joanna !

Joanna's place is lovely and cosy! The area is quite and the beach just a 2 mins walk away! The apt is fully equipped with plates, glasses, pots and pans, even a mini-grill where you can heat up your croissants in the morning :) beach mattresses are available in the house (veeery useful since most beaches are rocky), however bring your own beach towels. Oh, and the bed is so comfy!! There is a big balcony, it's in the shadow all day long but you get sun from 6 pm, perfectly in time if you still want to enjoy a glass of wine in the sun on the balcony after a day at the beach. Bars and restaurants are a 5 mins walk, so it's the bus stop connecting to pretty much everywhere, and the nearest train station a 15 mins walk away. We really enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend Joana's lovely apartment to anyone! Thanks Joana and Anita!

The apartment was very close to the water, but not as close to the church and waterfront restaurants (pictured) as I expected. That was the only disappointment. It was clean and well-equipped, and we could always find a parking space for our car just in front. All in all, a great stay. We did not meet Joanna, but her manager was always available by phone, and met us when we arrived at the apartment.

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York of Italian Heritage therefore an affinity for the European lifestyle is in my blood. My European travels began early in life and France, with her joie de vivre, became my favorite destination. Great food and wine , fabulous weather and the friendly people helped make the South of France a place I returned to often. When I found this apartment in Cagnes-Sur-Mer I immediately fell in love with it. The historic surrounding area, the beautiful Mediterranean Sea and the added convenience of easily accessible transportation made my decision to purchase this charming large studio apartment a snap. With Italy just an hour away I find it easy to indulge myself in my Italian roots.

I love everything there is about food, wine and the friends and family I share these with. It is such a pleasure to walk to the nearby markets and shop for fresh produce, meat or fish, cook it up, then share it accompanied with good wine, stories and laughter. Add to this a stroll along the sea and an after-dinner drink/dessert/espresso while watching the sunset and the local residents enjoy their little piece of heaven. Ah, la vie est belle!

I hope you enjoy my home and the area as much as I do. Bienvenue!
