This place was a gem! Centrally located in Nice, the apartment is decorated with taste, very beautiful. The living room, where breakfast is served, was wonderful. The Magnolia room was splendid! So beautiful, with a little balcony facing the garden, spacious and with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was huge, modern and beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. Nelly is a wonderful host, very dedicated. She spoke little english and I little french, but we were able to communicate easily. We were travelling with our baby daughter and Nelly was so nice to her. She went out of her way to help us, suggested nice restaurants to dine and places to visit. We felt like we were staying at a friend´s house. I would love to come back.
-seulement deux nuits:23 et 24/12/2014 accueil trés chaleureux de joseph et christina disponibles pour toutes demandes et conseils échanges d'idées trés intéressantes et d'un niveau culturel enrichissant petit déjeuner somptueux un paradis pour les beaux jours...il ne faut pas hésiter simplement:merci.
Nous avons profité d'un week end super reposant dans ce B&B de charme. L’accueil de Karin et Sydney à été vraiment très agréable. Chambre, petit dej' et environnement 10/10 !! Je recommande ... Erwan et Graciela
Elégant,calme, raffiné, un espace très agréable d'autant que l'aspect extérieur de l'immeuble est d'apparence ordinaire.Le parking privatif, sécurisé et les balcons au 7ème étage, le tramway au coin de la rue sont appréciables. L'accueil est parfait et le petit déjeuner digne d'un hôtel haut de gamme, balcon dans la chambre, dans le lieu petit déjeuner, un grand placard, une salle de bain fonctionnelle, le tout d'une propreté irréprochable... à découvrir vraiment !!!!
Beautiful lodging, in stupendous location overlooking the Baie des Anges. Small but exquisite room with private facilities located off the patio, complete with goldfish pond and the sound of water. Plentiful vegetable and herb gardens and a bowl of ripe red tomatoes greeted us as we entered. The hosts are warm, generous, passionate artists and fantastic cooks, providing a wonderful spur of the moment meal to two very tired travelers.We enjoyed watching the sun set, the jewels of lights along the coast, and the planes coming in over the sea along with passionate conversation. The art and atelier of the artists is wonderful to enjoy. Breakfast was exceptional. The only drawback, distance from the train station and airport, is more than compensated by the above and beyond service of transportation. It was fun staying with Christina and Jose. Highly recommended! They took in strangers who became friends.
Nelly is one of the best! She appeared like magic when we got out of our taxi & helped us upstairs with our bags. The Magnolia bedroom is beautiful with a small balcony & the large bed is extremely comfortable. Nelly thought of everything to make our nine-night stay most enjoyable. Her breakfasts were lovely, so much on offer that lunch wasn't needed. Then Nelly recommended local restaurants for dinner. We truly felt 'at home' & would love to return some time.
We had the opportunity to stay here for two nights and it was great. "Pati" made us feel right at home instantly. Sat outside in a comfortable patio area with a pretty view of the city. She brought out drinks and spent time with us talking about the area and more. The next day she rode with us into the city showing us around and then found her own way home...while we stayed longer in the city. Was a very pleasant experience for us!
Madame Dehlinger is a gracious and kind hostess. We stayed wtih her in Nice for three beautiful evenings. The room she provides is spotless, well appointed and private. The secluded balcony was lovely for sharing a meal and a glass of wine with my husband. The bathroom is clean and spacious. Her breakfasts are delicious and plentiful. Thank you very much, Marie Claude. We enjoyed your wonderful hospitality. Carlee & Jake from Canada
Il faut souligner, la gentillesse et l'extrème disponibilité de notre hôtesse : Nelly, qui a le sens des relations humaines dans le meilleur sens du terme. L'accueil a été exceptionnel. Quant à l'appartement, on se serait cru "chez nous", "at home", bâtiment de type haussmanien, dans une rue calme et paisible, et ce en plein centre de Nice ville, à 500 mètres à pied : de la Gare SNCF de Nice-Ville, à 500 Mètres à pied de la promenade des Anglais et de la mer, tout autant de la vieille ville de Nice et ses multiples restaurants, bars.. Quant aux deux chambres louées, tout est "cosy", propre, confortable, avec TV et WI-FI. Le matin vous vous levez (dans la chambre" magnolia"), en même temps que le soleil, et vous "petit-déjeuner" dans le salon petit-déjeuner extrêmement complet, avant d'aller visiter la ville. En conclusion, ce lieu où demeure Nelly est un endroit idéal pour visiter, à pied, la ville de Nice, 5° plus grande ville de France. Nous y avons passé trois nuits, et nous conseillons vivement chacun d'entre nous, de choisir cet appartement. Merçi à vous Nelly de votre accueil chaleureux et de votre bonne humeur. Salut. Eric et Eliane, 60 ans, de LE COUDRAY 28630. De passage à Nice le 25.09.2014.
I just spent 4 days in paradise with Cathy and Michel. Their home is beautiful, matched by their personal touches and hospitable warmth. Cathy and Michel were very helpful with directions and recommendations - more friends than innkeepers!The accommodations are lovely, well appointed, and homey; their location is handy to Nice and points beyond. Breakfasts on the veranda were the best - croissants and cafe au lait overlooking the orange-tiled roofs of Nice and the Mediterranean. Beautiful! The views are stunning. I cannot recommend this location more highly. It was the best place I stayed on my two week trip to the Cote d"Azur and Provence.
We enjoyed two fantastic days with Christina and Jose. They were very attentive all the time. Indeed, they surprised us with a bottle of wine and chocolates the first night. The breakfast and the views of Nice were incredible. We could see the cost while eating toasts with marmalade and croissants right made. Also, we enjoyed the terrace with the small pool with fishes. Very relaxing and pleasant! Eva & Enrique
Un sejour parfait avec deux hosts tout simplement formidables et chaleureux. Cristina et Jose nous ont accueillit avec une formidable vue et d'excellentes tomates et piments du jardin. Les petits déjeuners s'accompagnent d'une ambiance reposante et d'une vue magnifique. Merci encore pour ces trois jours farcis niçois!
e stayed at this beautiful and quiet B&B for 5 nights in July 2014. The room, La Phillipine, was very nicely decorated and clean and had a wonderful view from the balcony over the countryside to the mountains. Just one thing about the room that might be a bit unfamiliar is that there is no door between the bedroom and the bathroom. The pool was very clean and had nice chairs to sit on as well as an umbrella if you preferred some shade. Claudine was a perfect host, providing a delicious breakfast with homemade jams, fresh orange juice, fresh fruit salad and self made pastries every morning. She was also very helpful and gave advice about the places to visit, the best beaches in the area and even booked us a table in a nearby restaurant. Her English was great, which was a blessing for us because we don't speak any French. The small towns and villages as well as Cannes can be easily reached by car. We had a wonderful stay and we can definitely recommend this B&B to everybody and would be happy to stay there again.
Our family rented Les Grimaldines for two weeks this spring. The views are wonderful, the patio, pool and BBQ area are great and the location is central to all destinations in the cote d'azur. However, the villa is 40 steps up from the road which could be an issue for those with a physical disability. The steps are steep with areas that are unprotected by bannisters. The two bedroom suite is completely separate from the main house and is 10 steps below. The bedrooms in the suite are not separate from each other. It does have a small kitchen and laundry which was useful. Les Grimaldines is the owner's personal home. She has cats which could be an issue for those with allergies. The owner's sister lives in a large apartment above the main house. Although we never saw her, we could hear activity above us. The owner was very responsive to small problems that came up during our stay. The hot water situation is very marginal for the kitchen and the suite. Of the two bedrooms in the main house, one has an en suite bathroom. The other has an en suite sink and shower, but the toilet is in the main living area. Overall we enjoyed our stay and the separate suite worked out well for the infant. The relative lack of privacy and the physical layout are negatives for an extended stay.
From the moment we saw Nelly holding the "Jennifer and Peter" sign in the streets of Nice ( we missed each other at the station!) we knew we had found a special person. Nelly truly welcomes you into her lovely home as if you were a member of her family. The rooms are lovely and " oh so French" . The gourmet breakfasts each day are a delight and the location is a amazing. Thank you Nelly for making our stay so memorable. Pete and Jen Perth Western Austraiia
Excellent B & B situated in a quiet and elegant residential area of Nice. Laure et Henri are very exceptional people and caring welcome you as family. It seems to be at home with loving family. Excellent breakfast, served by the pool, made pleasant by the kindness of the French baguettes and croissants and homemade jams from Mrs. Laurel.
Nous y avons séjourné 4 nuits du 7 au 11 Juillet et avons apprécié toutes les petites attentions de Nelly. Le B&B est très bien situé; proche de la gare SNCF , proche de la plage et de la promenade des anglais. Nous le recommandons fortement ! Déjeuner copieux, literie exceptionnelle, chambre bien aérée. Notre coup de cœur ! On nous a même accommodé avec un stationnement privé.
We would like to thank Christiane at Georges for their hospitality! They made us feel home away from home. Their lovely house is gorgeous, tidy and Provence touch is present everywhere. The room we stayed in makes one feel so comfortable. The view from the terrace is wonderful and the garden is so beautiful. Highly recommended!
Nous avons séjourné aux Pervences 5 jours, au mois de juin 2014. Les chambres sont supers, spacieuses, lumineuses, propres, et la literie confortable. Nous logions dans une des chambres vue sur piscine/la vallée, le réveil est donc très agréable. Petit dej complet (pains divers, confitures maisons, yaourts, fruits, thé café, jus). La salle de bain, bien que partagée par les autres chambres, est très grande et très propre. La maison est située dans les hauteurs de Nice, mais facilement accessible en transport en commun (plusieurs lignes de bus) et à pied, à +- 30 minutes du centre. Laure et Henri sont des hôtes très sympas et qui fournissent de nombreuses informations sur la région et les lieux à visiter. Seuls petits bémols: la piscine n'est pas chauffée, et malgré une température extérieure élevée, la piscine reste un peu froide. Aussi, pas de table d'hôte, ni de possibilité d'utiliser la cuisine de la maison. Mais cela permet de se promener dans Nice la nuit :-)
We stayed at the home of lovely couple with their attentive dog Arthur! We could not of ask for a more hospitable stay, the breakfast was more than delightful, and with the unbeatable view, better than the 5 star hotels that surrounded us! The bathroom is shared, but was not a problem, and we thoroughly enjoyed our last evening with drinks with our hosts. We definitely stay here again, as we'll most definitely we paying Nice a visit again.
having just returned from our 7th visit to Villa L'aimee this is surely confirmation enough of an outstanding place to stay, the quiet ambience and cleanliness is second to none, the villa is ideally situated from the centre of Nice, but not too far away to take a leisurely stroll.....the breakfasts surpass the usual continental fare and nothing is too much trouble for the hostess Toni, she has a great knowledge of the city and amenities and will go out of her way to help with any enquiries...there is also the resident dog Fudge who makes you welcome too.....all in all this is a fabulous place to stay and the rates are excellent, it will surpass all your expectations for sure....we highly recommend Villa Aimee which is a gem on the beautiful Cote D'Azur.......
Everything about this B&B and its hosts is excellent. The beds are comfortable, the house is very clean. The breakfast of fruit juice, baguettes, croissants, home-made jams, fresh fruits, yoghurt and excellent coffee is perfect! You can have your breakfast in the shade, whilst the perfume of the jasmine which covers the walls floats around you. The bougainvillea at the other end of the garden confirms you are in the Mediterranean. The hosts welcome you as friends and guests, not simply as clients.
Affacciata sulle splendide acque della Costa Azzurra, Nizza, con i suoi tramonti e l’elegante romanticismo del lungomare, è un simbolo d’eleganza, mondanità e folclore. A breve distanza dalla riviera ligure e dalla spiaggia di Sanremo, per la posizione di confine e la vicinanza a Monte Carlo, rappresenta una delle località più note e frequentate della costa francese.
Un weekend in un Bed & Breakfast di Nizza è sufficiente per conoscere il fascino della città, ma, se possibile, soffermarsi per qualche giorno, magari in un agriturismo a Nizza città o dintorni, può essere l’occasione per visitare i luoghi della Costa Azzurra, Cannes, Saint Tropez, Antibes, Monaco. Per la sua natura, Nizza è molto frequentata in estate da chi ama la vita di spiaggia, ma la bellezza del paesaggio e della città la rende una meta piacevole in tutti i mesi dell’anno, anche in inverno, quando le spiagge appaiono deserte.
Per scoprire il fascino di Nizza è sufficiente incamminarsi lungo le sue strade, con la maestosa presenza del mare sempre a pochi passi. La Promenade des Anglais, il viale che costeggia la riviera con una splendida vista sulla baia, in estate è affollata di turisti, ma con un po’ di attenzione si possono notare i palazzi in stile Belle Epoque, come il Palais de la Méditeranée e l’Hotel Negresco. Nelle vie del centro, la città vecchia offre un continuo alternarsi di strade, piccole piazze e pittoresche chiese, tra le quali si distingue la Cattedrale russo-ortodossa di San Nicola. Nizza è anche il luogo perfetto per chi ama l’arte, con il Museo di Arte Moderna, e i musei dedicati a Matisse e a Chagall, che in questa città trascorsero parte della loro vita.
Tradizione e originalità si confondono negli eventi che Nizza offre ai visitatori, primo tra tutti il famosissimo Carnevale, con le sfilate di carri, i balli e gli spettacoli. Gli sportivi possono assistere all’arrivo della Parigi-Nizza, una delle più importanti corse ciclistiche internazionali, ma non mancano gli eventi culturali, il festival della musica jazz e della polifonia, oltre alla festa patronale, in ottobre, e al grande Festival di Maggio.
La specialità locale è l’insalata nizzarda, preparata con verdure, uova e acciughe, e servita con pane, aglio e olio. La gastronomia del luogo offre anche torte salate, frittate, pesce tipico della baia, olive, formaggi, oltre a versioni particolarmente raffinate e creative della cucina francese.
Il clima è quello della riviera, estati belle e inverni tiepidi. Proprio per questa particolarità, Nizza è bella da vedere in tutti i mesi dell’anno, forse ancora di più in autunno o primavera.
