The apartment is as shown on the photos with really great views over the harbour - perfect to while an hour away on the juliet balcony with a glass of wine watching the comings and goings of superyachts, fishermen etc. It is on the 2nd floor but there is a very small lift so you don't need to carry bags upstairs. At night it was quiet being away from the centre of the old town especially as there is quality double glazing for light sleepers.
If self catering there are 2 supermarkets close by with everything you need and the well equipped kitchen has a fridge freezer - handy for wine & icecream!! Large variety of restaurants in the immediate vicinity.
Conveniently located - 5 mins to Place Garibaldi for the tram which takes you to Avenue Jean Medecin for the new town and the train station from where you can go to Cannes, Antibes or Eze. You can visit Cannes & Antibes on the same train ticket. At the end of street for 100 bus to Monaco and Menton or the bus to Villefranche. Turn left there is a little free boat that ferries you across the harbour during the day and then you can go along the promenade to the lift to go up the Chateau hill for wonderful views or continue to the flower market and the old town and its myriad of little streets and shops. The roads the other side of the port contain the antique shops.
Paul from JDV Holidays and Sandra who met us at the property were both very helpful and professional and I would have no hesitation in recommending both the Company and their property
The apartment is very spacious and in an excellent position for everything. Buses stop nearby to centre of Nice, villages along the coast and Monaco and Monte Carlo.
Opening the doors on to the balcony and being able to watch the boats was great.
A bbonus was the excellent restaurant Le San Juan at 7 Bd Franck Pilatte just up the steps from teh port and round to the other side the bay. They were particularly caring in catering for special dietary needs. Can highly recommend them. Food was delicious!

We stayed just under a week at this well equipped apartment. It was very comfortable and clean for our party of 4 adults. The location really couldn't be any better! A beautiful view over the marina and walking distance to the old town and many restaurants. Although if you don't feel like going far, the restaurant 'Le Marlin' below the apartment was great.
This is also a perfect location for buses and trains to visit towns along the riviera. We didn't hire a car and didn't miss it. The airport bus dropped us 5 mins walk from the apartment and worked well to and from the airport. 6 euros each for each journey. A well stocked supermarket is a few mins walk from the apartment.
Sandra met us when we arrived, was friendly and gave us all the info we needed.
We went by bus to Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, Beaulieu Sur Mer and Monaco. 1.50 euros each per journey. Don't forget to validate your ticket on board. Caught the train to Cannes. All recommended!
We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment or booking through Joie De Vivre who made the whole process very easy.
A minor improvement would be to replace the towels provided which were a little worn. We look forward to returning to Nice and staying here again in future.
Arrived on a late flight for the Grand Prix weekend and had to collect the key which was conveniently left for us at the airport. A short taxi ride along the sea front and into the port area the apartment is easily located.
Sandra came the next morning to ensure we were happy with everything and also gave us tips regarding public transport, local supermarkets and a few restaurants. Accommodation was well appointed with everything we needed for our one week stay. The view of the port from the balcony was really special.
Would recommend and definitely use again
