Sandrine and I welcome you at home in our 60 square metres flat from where you can go to the beach by walking for 100 yards.
The flat , located in a condominium,is rather quiet. The gardens and the main house, built in the half of the 19th century by a british lady,are both recorded as historical monument and worth to be seen for themselves.
It is at the groundfloor floor on the garden side, and at the 2 nd floor on the street side.
You can park inside but the car is useless.Indeed, bus lines are down the street to bring u downtown.
Also you can rent the "blue bicycles "at the bikes station for 1euro a day .
You'll find the main stores in the same place:
"Carrefour city"food shop, Tobaco, bakery, hairdresser, and, of course pizzas!
During spring and summer, when going to the beach ,also down the street, there is a private beach club where you can get sofas and umbrellas for renting. They ,of course, provide restaurants services.
Comming with kids? 100 yards higher on the same avenue there is a free children park with water games on during summer.
Comming for culture? Between the kids parc and our flat is located the naïv Art museum.....free entrance!
At home you'll find 2 Tv screens, a dvd payer , cook,hob, hoven, M-w hoven, dish washer but no washing machine.......you do not come for clothes washing , aren ´t you?
Anyting is missing, we can help, we are the nextdoor neighboors.
......see u soon.
Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour chez Sandrine et Vincent qui nous ont accueillis chaleureusement. L'appartement est joliment décoré, la résidence est verdoyante et calme. Parfait pour 4 personnes, spacieux, et très propre. Bien desservi par les bus, pour accéder au centre ancien de Nice, proche de la plage. Nous reviendrons certainement vous voir... Merci à tous les deux.
Vincent and his wife was a fantastic hosts: affordable, always attentive to our needs, from our arrive in Nice to our leaving.
Apartment simply perfect: furnitures new and of first level quality, all was clean and the family give to guests an incredible colletcion of DVD/Games to be viewed on two incredibles Plasma TV...what we want more? 100mts and were on Promenade des Anglais, 10 mins in the center city. 10 stars for them! Grazie Grazie!
Nous sommes très heureux d'avoir passé nos vacances de la fin d'année à Nice chez Sandrine & Vincent. Leur appartement est impéccable, propre, très bien aménagé et non loin de la plage. Vincent est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport et nous y a déposés pour retour, ce qui était vraiment très gentil de lui. Encore un grand merci, nous espérons de revenir l'an prochain.
We stayed two nights and Vincent & Sandrine were excellent hosts who were as courteous and hospitable as one can hope for. Apartment had a full kitchen with utensils/cutlery, 2 TVs with a nice selection of their DVDs, heating, and very spacious. Had a great time, thanks!!
Vincent and Sandrine were great and very helpful. They made sure we had everything we needed. The apartment is beautiful, clean and modern. It's very close to the beach and public transport. We would recommend it to anyone.
Sandrine and Vincente have a lovely apartment that is located a mere 15 min bus ride from the city centre. It is indeed just a short walk to the beach. There is a supermarket and bakery close by. The apartment itself is fresh, modern and clean. The wi-fi connection was excellent. We thought the giant shower head in the bathroom was awesome and for the ladies, there is also a hair dryer. The kitchen is very well equipped and includes a coffee machine and even a water filter jug. Coffee and tea are provided. And there were even nice little touches like tiny jam tubs, sachets of salad dressing and tomato sauce. The apartment is also furnished with large screen TVs and a selection of DVDs should you feel the need to take a rest from exploring the city. Vincente is a thoughtful and friendly host. He was kind enough to mail our postcards for us too. Thank you for providing us with a comfortable and very pleasant AirBNB experience!
The apartment is very well equipped to a high standard which made a good base for us each evening, The setting in the garden is lovely and peaceful too. We made use of the Mini Market on the corner for food, as well as the Boulangerie next door to it. Great food.
We walked into Nice the first day - it's easy but a long way. So we opted to use the "velo bleu" after that. Once you have worked out how to register, it's simple and efficient. For people in the UK, these are like the "Boris Bikes" in London. Cycling along the cote d'azure in the sun was a lovely way to travel and easy too with the flat cycle lanes. Lots of places to leave the bikes in town too.
The apartment is just a few minutes walk to the beach and the velo bleu park is just on the front, so very convenient.
Vincent (we didn't get to mee Sandrine) was a great host. He took a lot of time to explain everything to us, looked up restaurants for us before we arrived and made our stay so simple. We would definitely stay here again if we visit Nice.
We did a day trip to Monte Carlo as it's just around the bay. Hugely disappointing and I would not recommend going unless you want to drive the F1 circuit. Concrete and no soul. Antibes though was great and a simple train trip away.
Thanks Vincent and Sandrine for your hospitality, it was a great week.
Both Sandrine and Vincent Marques are incomparable hosts --- Vincent even picked both myself (arriving at 10 AM) and my friend (arriving at 8:00 PM) from the airport (which he was not required to do). Both were very helpful, considerate, polite and we were treated like members of the family [Vincent even helped me carry groceries from the grocery store). They both bend over backward to meet our needs, and provided many a cooking and other accessories for free. Their way of helping me out touches my heart. My recommendation are TOPMOST for them.
To say it simply, it was our best B&B experience yet! The apartment is extremely modern, clean and is super spacious giving you a feel of your own home away from home! Its located 5 minutes from everything so your right near al the action and the beach!!
Vincent was such a great host and very friendly. He is also a world of knowledge when it comes to Nice'.
We stayed in the apartment for 4 nights. Vincent picked us up from the airport and dropped us off on the way back. Vincent's English is excellent - better than my French - and he is very friendly and helpful. He is also careful not to be intrusive. The apartment itself was in excellent condition, very clean, spacious and finished to a modern standard. There were TVs in lounge and bedroom, DVD player, espresso machine, dish washer. My wife was pregnant at the time but the bus ride to and from central Nice was not a problem. We walked into down along the seafront one day. The grounds were also beautiful - you can see this from the picture - and worth exploring in themselves. We both loved Nice. Great food, not too expensive (if you are a little discerning - some of the portions were surprisingly large) and very picturesque. Train rides to various other south coast resorts short and easy. We visited Antibes (20 mins) but Monaco, amongst other places, is not too far. Finally, I'd just like to reiterate how helpful Vincent and Sandrine were. I'd forgotten my camera charger and Sandrine phoned up a shop or two to find one and they then dropped us off in town, next to the shop. I also left my driving license behind, which Vincent then posted back to me. You couldn't stay at a better place being looked after by better people.
