All the apartment and the garage
Cimiez is a quiet, safe,
residential area with beautiful gardens and stores for all your basic needs.
The neighbourhood of Cimiez is very close to the city centre and several bus lines run by. If you take the small passageway of Chemin de l'Olivetto you can walk downtown in 10 minutes.
Feel at home and act as if this were your home i.e. don't break anything or play loud music at night out of respect for the neighbours etc...common courtesy rules. No smoking :)
we had 5 amazing nights in David's spacious house in a nice neighbourhood, really can't beat the palm tree view, great equipped kitchen and the enjoyment of music in the apartment is the best! thank you Christiane for the warmest welcome, and thank you David for having us :) highly recommended!
My husband 17 year old daughter and myself spent a wonderful week in David's apartment.
Away from the hustle and bustle of central Nice the apartment is close enough to walk or take a 5 minute bus ride into Nice from a bus stop directly outside the apartment. The area is up market and close the the Chagall and Matisse museums.
The station is also only a 15 minute walk away from where several idyllic beaches can be reached, particularly those at Cap d'Ail and Eze. Monaco is on the same train line.
The apartment itself is clean spacious and well appointed. The kitchen is very well equipped with every conceivable 'mod con'
There is a fantastic sound system and huge television. The apartment also offers speedy wifi.
We found both David and Christiane extremely helpful with our queries .
We rented Davids apartment for 4 days of relaxation after a week of hiking the alps. The apartment was all that was promised and more. It was large modern and well kept, with all the amenities a family would need - a well appointment kitchen, large living room with a large TV and great sound system, a bathroom, shower room, and a third additional toilet. The storage room contains a washer and dryer. There was plenty of towels, beach towels and linen. The building and neighborhood were very quiet and allowed for a good rest at night.
David made sure there was food in the house when we arrived, which was helpful as we arrived on Sunday, and no Supermarkets were open. He was very helpful in providing information and ideas for our vacation.
We will most certainly return to Davids apartment when we find ourselves in Nice again, and highly recommend it as it provides very good value for the money spent.
David is an excellent host, he responds very fast and Christiane welcomed us and provided good tips about our stay. The apartment is very comfortable and has everything you need for a perfect family vacation. Air condition system in each room, stable Wifi and the electric blinds were just great! The kitchen is well equipped with a modern stove and appliances. It is located in a very quiet and pleasant neighborhood, just a few bus stops away from the beach. There are two supermarkets and one very good pizza kiosk close by. Thanks David and Christiane!
We heard from David shortly before our arrival reminding us to contact Christiane so she could meet us outside the apt. I contacted her and she met us as agreed... even though we were caught in bad traffic by the airport due to the taxi strike. We were relying on our GPS to get us there and maybe if we knew the city we could have avoided it but it was a mess that day. The neighborhood is beautiful! Grand old houses and apts. with giant palm trees that sit above the city with a view of the ocean. This apt is modern and spacious. Lots of room for 4 people. We only had 3 because my sister's husband had to return home due to business. The apt was clean and the beds very comfortable. Modern Air-conditioning units worked great in every room. There is a very nice stereo but we never used it. The giant flat screen was great. Also a DVD player worked.. printed directions are there on how to use it but I still had a little difficulty but figured it out. The second TV in the first bedroom never worked because the satellite connection didn't seem to work. I gave up and it didn't really bother us. There is a washer-dryer that is fairly easy to work. The dryer takes forever so we just dried our clothes outside on the rack. The dishwasher worked great and so did the other appliances. I never figured out the coffee maker... that was not a priority. Being American and not speaking french, these appliances were a bit of a challenge but we figured them out. David was also very quick to answer any questions by email.
David's apartment extremely spacious, clean and comfortable to stay in. His descriptions and pictures are accurate if not an understatement. The apartment is located in a safe and quite neighbourhood and everything (beach, city and museums) is just a short bus ride away. If you're travelling to Nice in a group of 5 or less, look no further, David's apartment will be your perfect choice.
Perfect space for the four adults to stay in David's apt accommodating up to 6guests.amazing use of the space and finished to an extremely high standard.Both the kitchen and living room are really well equipped with and cozy.wifi there is also very fluent.we intend to stay here whenever we r in Nice
About the Host, David
Conference interpreter having to live away from Nice :( Raised there and love the region. Will provide all guests with a list of things to see and do whilst holidaying. I always love to go back to Nice and enjoy my comfortable apartment, the old town, the beaches and above all the food. Nice has unique food experiences based on local, off the tourist-route cuisine that I will gladly share with you.
