“Great apartment in an excellent location”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We recently stayed in this apartment as a family of four. The location is excellent as it's in the heart of the Old Town but off the main tourist areas/squares. Although the apartment is located on the fourth floor and you get an excellent workout on the way up those stairs, you will be rewarded with excellent views from the outdoor terrace. This made the holiday for me - just sitting out on the terrace eating & drinking red wine with the atmosphere of the Old Town was magical. The apartment is located to the many restaurants and small shops in the Old Town. We hired a car for a few days & it was a bit of a pain walking to garages located on the outskirts of the Old Town (especially if you forget something in the apartment) but at least it keeps you fit!

The apartment is modern and clean & has a nice shower. The shared areas might be a shock for some people but this does add to the charm of the apartment & the area. We booked the apartment via Nice Pebbles & they do an excellent job with communication & "meet & greet". Highly recommended.

Thank your for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review of the location of La Belle Excuse. Your review raises a good point; parking in Nice can be difficult. Luckily, Nice has an excellent public transport system that includes trains, buses and trams. Check out your Pebbles guide for more information about this. We hope you enjoyed your time in Nice and we look forward to seeing you again.
