Great holidays in a wonderful place
Apartment has really good interior decoration with clean and comfortable sofas and beds, kitchen with all modern conveniences, nice lay-out (rooms are well-isolated from each other), beautiful gardens which make you relaxed, and a fast wi-fi.
Every bonus you can think about is included: juices and champagne in fridge, lots of Evian, tea, coffee (Nespresso), biscuits, spices, salt and olive oil, sugar, dishes for children (spoons, forks, plates and glasses), blander, all for laundering and dishwashing, shower gels, soap, hair-drier. And they are free. First time (we are travelling and using apartments for more than 10 years) we didn’t buy them ourselves.
Florian helped us in all kinds of questions: he answered immediately (talking by mail), when we arrived he showed us the supermarket, also he brought an adapter which we needed almost as soon as we asked him. Thank you very much for your help!
We were with 2 children (15 an 2,8 years old). The younger one usually sleeps in a different room but we didn’t know, how is he going to behave in a new place, so we asked for a child bed – and Florian gave it – a big wooden child bed with linen.
The place is exciting, especially for holidays with children. In front of the apartment there is a park (we were cycling there) and in 2 minutes on foot – clean tidy beach. Parking next to a wicket. Very quiet place. There is a garden (private) where a baby may sleep (for instance, in a trolley) and where you may have lunch. Round the corner of the house there is a fish store with ripe seafood (oysters, for example).
We liked it very much!
It is a clean and comfortable flat; we all really enjoyed staying here! Florian is also thoughtful, has taken care all details. For sure, we will come back and recommend the flat to other friends.
See you next time!
Our experience in this apartment for 3 weeks in August was one that will take a long time to forget.
There were several issues that contributed to this disaster:
Hundreds of mosquitos were waiting for us on arrival. It was shocking beyond belief. Within the 1st hour, we killed over 100 mosquitos. In total, throughout our stay, we killed several hundreds, without exaggeration. We suffered constant sleepless nights as a result of waking up to sounds of mosquitos flying next to our head. Of course, throughout our stay we had multiple mosquito repellant scents that we plugged into the walls, and also used in total 6-7 cans of mosquito sprays. During check-in, Florian offered to drive us to the nearest supermarket to stock-up on mosquito scents/sprays, which was appreciated. After returning home and spending the remainder of the day killing mosquitos, we could not bare to stay at home. We called Florian and explained our situation, and insisted respectfully that a pest control company service the apartment/gardens the next day. During the phone call, Florian spoke very unprofessionally with my family, finding every way to imply that we were all born yesterday, and repeatedly asserting that having 100+ mosquitos in one day is normal, due to Cannes having a wet winter. We reminded Florian that we have been visiting Cannes for 30+ years, and have never experienced anything like this before. He mentioned that he cannot hire a plane for us to spray the entire Cannes. This is extremely unprofessional behaviour. The next day, Florian however passed by the apartment and placed small burners in every room that gave off a strong scent to kill the mosquitos. We were told to stay out of the apartment for a few hours until it was safe. There were no issues with mosquitos that night, though they returned the day after, and continued throughout our stay.
The noise emitted from the water pumps is very loud and woke us up at night.
The toilet in one of the bathrooms emits a very foul smell. The apartment entrance is also very close to the room that houses the building's household garbage, which was a very unwelcoming entrance to the building, and we would rush to get in to the apartment at times.
Lastly, someone from the electrical company knocked on our door and was threatening to cut our electricity on the spot unless the apartment owner/manager paid the far-overdue bill. The person tried repeatedly calling the owner and Florian, in front of us, without success. We called Florian from our phone twice until he answered. Although he apologised, we were woken up early, and wondering whether we had to vacate the property because it would get too hot without AC (we couldn't open the windows because even more mosquitos would enter).
I have never written a review anywhere near this length (nor do I usually even write reviews), but I felt that future tenants need to know the facts before committing to this property.
We made the reservation of the appartment in Cannes from 9-th till 15-th of March 2013,It was the business trip during MIPIM conference.
From the very beginig of booking till the end of our trip Florian was extremely patient and polite (it was our 1-st airbnb experience) , he aswered to all our questions in a very friendly way and was always in touch.
As for the appartment :
1. The appartment looks much better than on photo: the flat is very spacious, btight, with big windows.
2.The apartment is newly decorated, it has a very interesting design with elements of retro, mostly we liked an old radio.
3. The lounge in the apartment is huge and very light. The flat has everything you need: Wi-fi, TV, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, guest WC, concierge service and etc.
4. There are two gardens in each side of the appartment which are adjacent to the apartment and only the guests of the appartment can attend them, so you can drink coffee and enjoy the beautiful view of the sea.
P.S: If you are not sure weather you need the breckfast in appartment, don`t hesitate, couse nice lady Marie cooks very delicious breacfast in the morning.
Next time I will definitely stay in this apartment!
Florian's apartment is an amazing place to stay in Cannes and Florian is a very kind and care-taking host. We spend two weeks at the Croisette based flat, enjoyed the sunny garden, the massive living room and the well equipped kitchen. Everything was super tidy and highest standard. Thank you very much of taking care of us, Florian!
