Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We didn't want to leave! Excellent location, 2 minutes walk from a lovely uncrowded beach. Also it is the perfect base for exploring the other towns of the French Riviera. The apartment was so homely and had absolutely everything we needed.

    Response from Joanna:

    Thank you Rebecca, I am so happy to enjoyed your stay. Please come back anytime! Joanna

  • Joanna's place was nice to stay. Small flat but everything you need to make your visit a wonderful holiday. If one day i would come back to Cagnes sur mer i will surely ask her to host me again.

    August 2012
  • Great place. Clean, tidy, convenient.

    Joanna made sure everything was in place for us and made for an easy key pickup. Only gave 4 stars in stead of 5 because the internet was slow and unreliable (which wasn't Joanna's fault).

    Otherwise, a wonderful place to stay and Joanna was very helpful and bent over backwards for us!
    Will stay again! :)

  • I would like to express my gratitude for perfect opportunity to stay in Cagnes-sur-Mer and in your wonderful apartment from 9-th to 21-th of September 2013. It is very cosy and comfortable, it has all necessary things for a holiday.
    The place is quite and very beautiful. It has very good bus and train connection with different touristic places. We managed to visit all Сote d’Azure from Menton to Frejuce!
    I am very much satisfied with the holiday I had.
    I hope to come back to Cagnes-sur-Mer one day and I will definitely recommend this place to my friends and family.

    Response from Joanna:

    Thank you so much Olga! If you have any suggestions for locations to see or how I can make the apartment better please let me know.

  • We had a very relaxing stay in Joanna's appartment. It offers just enough space for two people and is very close to the beach, which we enjoyed most. The area has many attractions and is close to Nice, for those people who love action, this is your place :)

    August 2013
    Response from Joanna:

    Thank you Anne, I hope you return and tell your friends!


  • Wonderful apartment in a wonderful location! 1 minute to the beach, the sea is visible from the street - we are very pleased. The beaches are clean and UN-crowded. Shop, bakery, stop all within a 2 minute walk, very convenient. The apartment has everything that you need! Thank You, Johanna!

    July 2013!

  • I enjoyed my stay so much so at the apartment that I didn't want to leave! It has everything you need to feel comfortable and is very convenient to the beach, which is a lot less crowded than in Nice. Great parking if you have a car and bus service is nearby, as well. Regional train station about a ten mins walk, but you can go all up and down the area from there and it's inexpensive. Local must visit: the artisinal bakery/boulangerie on rue de Nice (not the one on the corner, but across the street) about a block off Ave des Mimosas.

    Communication between both Joanna and her realty assistant, Anita, was excellent. Thank you, ladies, for everything!

  • location sans problème; tout est bien identifié , la plage est bien à 100 mètres ; seul bémol ,l ' équipement cuisine pour ceux qui aime cuisiner est un peu minimaliste ; à part ça tout est OK .

    June 2013
    Response from Joanna:

    Merci M. Thiel! I will post the translation:

    rental without problem, everything is clearly identified, the beach is 100 meters, only downside, the kitchen equipment for those who love to cook is a bit minimalist, apart from that everything is OK.

  • Great big apartment has everything you need. Very close to the beach. Nice quiet and green area. We are very happy with the stay in this apartment.

    June 2013
  • Замечательная, очень удобно устроенная для проведения отпуска квартира. Рука хозяйки позаботилась буквально обо всем.
    В трех-пяти минутах езды от аэропорта, так что машину не стоит брать сразу в аэропорту, лучше оглядеться и не попадать на деньги (было трудно найти улицу, поскольку названия написаны маленькими буквами на бледно голубом, но все таки получилось)))
    Место идеально для активного досуга - чудесная береговая линия.

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!
