The apartment is spacious and hospitality by Tristan and Marilia, his apartment manager, was most gracious. It is located central to the port and lovely Garibaldi Square, seaport and to bus access to Monaco and other neighboring villages. Other than the adjustment to no A/C and a…

Response from Tristan:
Thanks Jennifer, what a kind review! You must come again. The bus for Monaco, Villefranche, Eze and Menton costs just €1 and departs from outside our street. As we make clear to guests, our apartment block was built when Abraham Lincoln was President - that means there is no lift to our beautiful third floor home. No dice! Look forward to seeing you soon, Tristan

We loved this flat, which is in a fabulous location (yet quiet), very open, light, airy, supplied with all we needed, and very comfortable to relax in at any time of day. Everything advertised about this flat is true, so I don't need to repeat. The host was very friendly and we…

Ah Christine, how generous of you! I am happy to recommend anything to suit any party - in your case Nice's best vegetarian restaurants and Monaco's best museums. You're right - we have a central location near the yachts of Nice Port and the Old Town's Place Garidbaldi. But our apartment is enviably quiet with a beautiful south facing exposition. Finally, yes please come back! The welcome pack with bottle of wine is waiting for you ;-)

We loved staying in Tristan's beautiful home. It was spacious, clean, and extremely comfortable. The apartment is located in a fantastic part of the city, with great restaurants, bars, and markets just minutes away. Also the beach and old town are less than a ten minute walk. Tr…

Response from Tristan:
Wow thank you Lowell. It was a true pleasure to host your group from New York. Now that direct flights between JFK and Nice are year-round, why don't you come back next Spring?! Our apartment is indeed fabulously located. So quiet, so sunny, yet minutes from the Old Town, beach, tram and Monaco bus. We prefer the more authentic restaurants in the Port as opposed to the more touristy Old Town ones, but you can certainly eat like a king in both! Hope to welcome you again soon, Tristan

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Tristan and Kathryn's Nice apartment. The space is beautiful, well equipped and perfectly located for exploring the city and its surrounding areas. Since the owners are travel writers, there are also some great tips and recommendations at the apartm…

Hi Suzanne, That's so generous. Hope you enjoyed the welcome pack and books. All of our favourite restaurants in are in the guidebooks that we write, although we have the iPad for even more tips. We are praying you come back next year! See you soon, Tristan and Kathryn

The apartment is very close to old city and the sea. You only have to get your personal belongins, everything is perfect.

Response from Tristan:
Thank you Ezel and friends! All of our guests say the same thing: the apartment is close to the Old City and sea, yet is utterly peaceful as it faces a vast south-facing courtyard. The Monaco bus, place Garibaldi tram and over 100 restaurants are within four-minutes walk. Hope you come back to our beautiful Nice apartment soon! Tristan
