A description of Nice by "European Best Destinations"
Nice The Mediterranean art of living
A seaside city in the centre of Europe, Nice has been enjoying, in recent years, a genuine economic, cultural, artistic and architectural revolution.. Creative, dynamic, cosmopolitan, young, Nice is bubbling with innovative realizations worthy of Europe’s greatest capitals. Innovation is everywhere. Nice is on the move, constantly growing and evolving, always excelling...
It boasts cutting-edge infrastructures, from the international airport – the first busiest in France after Paris, with a hundred destinations all over the world – to its accommodation combining quality service and great capacity, and the ability to facilitate the planning of incentive events, regardless of their nature, their motivation or the number of participants.
The cuisine is as refined as it is delicious; it expresses the aromas of the Mediterranean, the diversity of products, the rich bouquet of the wines of Bellet, the mild flavour of olive oil, the excellent art of great chefs is expressed in the French Riviera’s best restaurants.
Life in southern Europe begins with the description of a sunrise on the blue waters of the Mediterranean, the well-being procured by the wonderful light that prevails only here, a lovely breakfast on a sun-drenched terrace, the tranquillity of a stroll in the narrow streets of the Old Town, lunch on a hotel terrace, afternoon shopping in the city’s prestigious boutiques, diving into the sea, sipping a drink on Cours Saleya, attending a classical music concert at the Opéra de Nice, a gala soirée at the Casino, candlelight dinner in a famous restaurant... It is all that and much more. Live a life of happiness and contentment.

It was comfortable staying in the attic room . Also the house is on a hill and has a view of nice from the balcony . We enjoyed our stay here.
Rani gave me easy to follow directions and greeted me and gave me the tour of the house. She also took me to the balcony where she pointed out the directions to points of interest. She even provided a breakdown of the map. She and her husband were very accommodating: printing boarding passes for me and giving me suggestions for a motorcycle ride (among other suggestions). Rani was very attentive to my stay and making sure I had what I needed.
The room was very nice and clean. It was plenty spacious and I really appreciated the shower. The location is close enough by tram or bus to old town. The trips back and forth kind of got redundant for me though. I had access to most of the house, but I didn't utilize them and I kept to myself - though Rani was kind enough to invite me to dinner and encouraged my presence throughout the house.
This place is an excellent value and you'll appreciate what it has to offer.
Wir haben uns im Haus von Rani & Florent sehr wohl gefühlt! Die Unterkunft hat eine gemütliche Atmosphäre in der man sich sofort entspannen kann. Aus der Gegend kann man das Stadtzentrum per Bus oder Straßenbahn äußerst schnell erreichen. Unsere Gastgeber waren vollkommen unkompliziert und sind uns bei Bedarf auch immer mit guten Tipps zur Seite gestanden. Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt!
Rani and Florent are friendly, energetic and always ready to help. I felt very welcome in their comfortable home which is spacious and nicely furnished. In addition to our room and our bathroom we were allowed to use the terrace, the kitchen and the living-room. I highly recommend Rani, Florent and their beautiful home.
Rani and florents place was amazing:) the view from the top balcony of nice was the icing on top. Their home is super clean and tidy and their kitchen is well equipped. The room was gorgeous and felt like a small hide away because it was in built to the top floor. Having our own ensuite was brilliant.
Their house mate Louise was a pleasure for company and culture.
We had a brilliant time there!
We stayed in Nice for 8 nights. It was wonderful. We were very lucky with the weather as it was very warm and sunny except 2 days when it rained a little. Florent and Rani were away on business but Florent's parents greeted us and were very welcoming and helpful. They told us where the next supermarket was, local markets and gave us some tips on places to go to :D The room was nice and the private bathroom was also very nice, although the water splashes a lot since there was no shower curtain. The house was nice, internet was good and being able to use the kitchen is very good. The house is in a good spot in my opinion because it is out of the tourist area and so it is in a quiet neighborhood, although this makes the walking down to the center about 20-30 minutes depending on how fast you walk. All in all it was a good stay and I would recommend it to anyone.

About the Host, Rani & Florent
(English version below)
Nous sommes un couple, je suis enseignant-chercheur et Florent mon compagnon est chef de projet. Nous habitons depuis longtemps à Nice et connaissons très bien la ville (sorties, loisirs, culture), la région (villes alentours, arrière-pays), les montagnes. (Nous sommes souvent occupés et parfois en voyage donc vous aurez parfois le lieu pour vous seuls). Nous sommes passionnés d'alpinisme, rando en montagne, vélo. Nous avons beaucoup voyagé et aimons recevoir ! Au plaisir de vous rencontrer!
Hello, we are a couple, I am a researcher at the University I work both in France and Sweden, and my partner Florent is project manager in Sophia-Antipolis. We live in Nice for a long time now, so we know the city and the region very well (where to go out, what to do). We are fond of alpinism, mountain treks and cycling. We are busy professionals and often on travel, so you will sometimes have the place for your own. We have travelled quite a lot and we love to receive and welcome people although we are discrete when guests are at home! We are looking forward to meeting you!
