The apartment, just off the prestigious Boulevard Victor Hugo, Nice, has all the light and sunshine that comes from facing south east on the fourth floor.
There is a lift in the building which goes up to the fourth floor. The large living room has two full size French windows, both of which lead to a full length balcony with a table and 2 chairs for meals, drinks and relaxing. Inside seating includes leather rocking chair and sofa. The dining area has a round glass Habitat dining table and 4 chairs. The kitchen is fitted to a very high standard including new fridge/freezer, Bosch washing machine and dishwasher, induction hob, oven and microwave. The bedroom has matching king size bed, wardrobes, chest of drawers and bedside cabinets. There is a separate WC with basin. The bathroom has bath, basin and separate shower in cubicle.
The apartment is a seven minute walk from the railway station and a seven minute walk from the Promenade des Anglais. There are many restaurants and cafes nearby, a boulangerie across the road, with several supermarkets just a couple of minutes away.
Fantastic apartment, fabulous location
Beautifully appointed accommodation in a perfect French building. So much better than a pokey hotel room, the apartment is very spacious and has everything you could need to make it a home from home. Many extra touches such as beach mats and Ray and Jacky’s books and DVDs add to the overall enjoyment of the apartment. You are just a stroll away from local supermarkets that provide everything you could need. The location is perfect for all modes of transport taking you to wherever you desire. You will be hard-pressed to find such good self-catering accommodation in Nice. Celine is the on-site contact who is very friendly as was the pre visit email contacts from Ray and Jacky giving you all the assurance you need. We would highly recommend this sunny holiday home. Thank you,

SIMPLY OWNERS - SO MUCH IMPROVED FROM OTHER OWNER’ SITES ON THE INTERNET.
We loved this apartment - no corners have been cut with this little gem on the Côte d’Azur. Much larger than the average city apartment. The decor/furnishing are second to none and in line with some of the best places we have stayed in over the last 20 years. Immaculately clean. Kitchen is very modern with every appliance you require (including condiments/oils/washing up liquid etc). Those little touches go to create a lasting appreciation / impression.
It is in an ideal location being a short, leisurely walk, to the beach and having all the transportation nearby (including the fabulous train station which we intend to utilise on our next visit). We enjoyed this apartment and it’s location so much we actually only made it to Monaco - to walk the F1 circuit.
We DO intend to return soon, in the knowledge that we can easily visit St Tropez and Cannes.
We liked the leisurely mornings / early afternoons relaxing in and around this superb apartment and taking in the many coffee houses before hitting the town (a leisurely 10 minutes walk) to frequent the numerous restaurants/bars. In fact, we would normally have 50% of our meals in the apartment wherever we are staying, however, the choice was so good we ate out most days.
On a very important note :
Celine who manages the apartment is a valuable asset for any English holiday property owner in France. Perfect English and a great sense of humour. So welcoming and helpful.
Looking forward to when we can next return to this lovely gem of an apartment.
With many thanks to the owners Ray? Jackie and manager Céline for making our holiday memorable.
It was a great pleasure to stay in this apartment near the old town of Nice between the beach and the main station. It‘s perfectly located to discover the town and all Cities nearby (Monaco, Cannes, etc.) The apartment was clean and very comfortable. Communication with the owner and the organisation on site were friendly and without any problems. Hope to come back again.
This flat is well located to walk to any of the sites in Nice as well as the train station.
We arrived from Canada just in time to experience the first snowfall in 8 years!
There is some hustle and bustle at all hours of the night so if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs as I did and it solved the issue.
There are many great restaurants and grocery stores close by!
Thank you to Ray and Jacky! We'll be back hopefully for better weather!

Owner's Response: Do come again and enjoy the sun!
This was our first visit to Nice and we weren't disappointed! The apartment was very tastefully decorated, fully equipped, spotlessly clean and ideally located. Nice is a very beautiful city with a lovely, friendly atmosphere and lots to do and see in the area. We had a fabulous holiday! Nice has totally captured our hearts and we'd love to return - hopefully to stay in this lovely apartment! We highly recommend both!

The apartment is exceptionally clean. Delightful balcony. Also, it's well placed for station, prom or shops! Celine, who greets you, is so helpful and lives nearby if any help or advice is needed. Always keen to help guests or arrange a taxi if required. She's a delight.

Wir haben in dem sehr sauberen und großen Appartement unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Alles verlief sehr professionell und wir hatten keinen Grund zur Beanstandung. Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet und sehr gepflegt sowie sauber. Alles ist fussläufig gut erreichbar und trotzdem entfernt genug von touristischer Hektik. Wir würden diese Unterkunft in jedem Fall weiterempfehlen und gerne wieder zurückkommen.
Danke für die schönen Tage sagen,

Owner's Response: Always happy to hear our guests have enjoyed their stay and thank them for their recommendation.
What a joy it was to stay in Ray and Jacky's apartment -- very spacious, well appointed, excellent location, even niceer than the description. The apartment is full of natural light and we loved having the balcony, especially for a late afternoon or nighttime glass of wine. The place was spotless and beautifully painted. Furniture and decor were attractive, functional and smart for travelers. After 10 days in much smaller hotel rooms, having this amount of space AND the convenience of a washing machine was great for us. Celine is a gem and could not have been more helpful, although the apartment is set up so intuitively, we could almost have walked in with no assistance. We loved Nice and should we revisit, we would love to stay in the Tarleton apartment again. Thanks -- Stanley and Ellen, Los Angeles, California

Owner's Response: We enjoyed reading this charmingly written review and hope our American guests will return.
We loved this place. The photographs actually don't do this apartment justice. It is truly spacious, modern, and beautiful. Celine was there to help orient us on arrival. After that everything went very smoothly. It's high enough up that the street noise from maintenance vehicles in the early morning was not too much of a problem. The internet was fantastically excellent, over 100 mb/sec.

Owner's Response: Lovely comments from our first American guests this summer. So pleased they enjoyed everything and hope they'll return.
We had a lovely holiday in Nice staying at this wonderful apartment! It had everything you could need plus a few surprise extras. The location was perfect for exploring all that Nice had to offer and with the train station only a 5 minute walk away we were able to explore even further afield. Celine who met us on arrival is a lovely host and explained carefully all about the apartment. As she lives in the same block she would be close at hand if there were any problems - needless to say there were'nt any! Thanks to Ray and Jacky for letting us stay in their apartment and when we do return again someday it will be to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Our location and superb manager delight yet again- this time for our first guests from Canada. We hope they will return.
Apartment was very clean and tidy with all the things you would need for a relaxing stay. Great balcony for an early morning coffee and croissant. Good location only 5-10 minutes from bars and restaurants although quite a long walk to the old town. Lots of small supermarkets and shops locally for supplies.
Overall I would definitely recommend a stay.

We spent 5 nights at this extremely well equipped and central apartment. We relaxed ate out nearby and took a bus to Monaco for 1 euro 50! Spectacular views along coast can thoroughly recommend. Nice has so much to see and do, we will definitely be back. Thanks Ray and Jacky for letting us stay and also to Celine for her attentiveness.

Location was ideal with apartment situated in a relatively quiet residential area but with huge choice of local bars/restaurants, Promenade des Anglais and rail station all easily accessible by foot. The apartment was very stylish, comfortable and extremely well equipped and this enabled us to feel at ease as soon as we arrived. Enjoyed nice, lazy breakfasts in the sun on the outside balcony whilst watching the world pass by. Celine was brilliant and explained everything extremely well when we arrived but was not at all intrusive but comforting to know she was at hand and she happily organised our taxi back to the airport. Highly recommended.

Property beautifully presented. Owners very accommodating with their personal things like books etc., Lots of useful leaflets giving information on local shops/restaurants / attractions/places to visit. All felt very generous. So able to relax straight away.
Even help with arranging taxi on arrival when local airport bus service caught up with national strike. Celine, who lives in the same apartment block, was on hand to help but not intrusive.
This all contributed to giving us a very relaxing but interesting holiday - just what we wanted.

The apartment is in a great location to explore on foot all the delights of Nice of which there are many. It is extremely well equipped, smart and stylish and scrupulously clean as well as being very spacious. Jacky and Ray produce excellent directions, notes and guides and their knowledge of local restaurants is really useful. Celine who showed us round is very helpful and lives not far away in case of any problems. Nice was great in winter with so many fine buildings and sights to see and the apartment enabled us to enjoy it to the full. The mild weather was an added bonus. A perfect winter break!

Owner's Response: Our secret is out- this is the perfect winter escape! So glad our guests enjoyed their stay and we hope to welcome them back.
Fantastic apartment in quiet residential location.Great amenities, shops , cafes all within a few yards from your door. Recently decorated to a very high standard....fresh and bright.
Warm friendly welcome when you arrive and good local contact living in same building.Transport to further-a-field destinations all within a x 20 minute gentle walk.Would certainly stay here again as old town gets overwhelming at times.Owners have thought of everything including beach mats and parasols !
Great views from the 4th Floor balcony, very pleasant for morning coffees and breakfast.If the stairs get to much a well operated lift gets you there in a flash.
Restaurants all around you offering great "local" x 3 course meals with wine for around 45 -50 euros (you will pay far more in old town) Our sixth visit to Nice and the best yet !! Andy & Dawn (Newcastle Upon Tyne)

Once again, we are most grateful for the opportunity to stay in your apartment in Nice. Just as good as the last time in all respects! I am sure we shall be going again next year so I hope we shall be able to stay again at the same time. It's perfect for us.
It was a good stay. We find it best to eat in the nearby restaurants. One night we ventured into the old town but it is not as pleasant really and the quality of the service and not nearly as good as the local restaurants. We very much like the Corsican restaurant nearby.

We stayed in one hotel, another more central apartment and finally this one in Avenue Auber during our visit to Nice. We certainly saved the best 'til last! Everything about this apartment, within its wonderful classic French block, is excellent. Great position, excellent aspect, immaculately clean. If you want a comfortable stay in Nice my advice is 'Look No Further'.

We had a wonderful week in Nice, made more pleasant by the lovely apartment we stayed in. It is very central, easy to get to, within walking distance for public transport (which is excellent) and for exploring Nice and the surrounding area. The apartment has everything you need, Celine is a wonderful host and the owners provide great information and support in advance of your trip. We would love to return to Nice at some point as we didn't do everything we wanted to so if we do we will definitely return here and recommend to family and friends!!

The property is in a great location for the beach and the old town as well as for public transport to visit places further afield.
The apartment is very well turned out, spacious and made for a very comfortable stay. Celine was very welcoming on our arrival and accommodating of arrival and departure times.
We particularly enjoyed the balcony, which catches the morning sun for breakfast (from local bakeries) and lunch but is shaded in the heat of the day and is a great place to relax with a drink and a good book.
Many thanks for making this a lovely holiday in Nice!

The perfect apartment for visiting Nice and the area. Beautifully laid out and furnished and very comfortable. Near to the sea and the Old Town. A great place to be based. Excellent restaurants within easy walking distance. Very helpful advice in apartment. Five stars and more if they were available. Couldn't be better!

Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our stay in Nice and really appreciated the charms of this lovely apartment. All the information and tips from yourselves, Celine and other guests helped to make our time in Nice all the more enjoyable. We enjoyed temperatures in the mid 20s and appreciated having the use of all the beach gear.
We hope to return to Nice at some future time and hopefully to Avenue Auber.
All good wishes to yourself and Jacky,

A fantastic time was had exploring the city of Nice! The apartment was luxurious and comfortable and managed that difficult trick of making you feel at home despite a beautiful climate and a pulsating city to explore. We were very appreciative of the owners who went the extra mile to ensure a wonderful time. We would recommend the apartment to you unreservedly!

Owner's Response: We also find new discoveries in this beautiful city every time we stay. We are delighted they had such a great time.
We have just returned after spending a week in this beautiful apartment. It is centrally located in a quiet street, 10 mins from the promenade and 10 mins from main shopping area in Nice, so it suits all types of holiday makers whether you want to relax on the beach or catch up on Nice fashion. We were met by Celine who showed us round the apartment, gave us instructions on appliances and directed us to local supermarket, although the fresh croissants from the banette on the corner of our street were hard to beat. Each morning began with fresh coffee and croissants on our balcony watching Nice waken up. The apartment is very comfortable, bright and airy. The owners Ray and Jackie also have a visitor book and encourage all guests to leave tips for future guests, for example restaurant recommendations, bus and train routes - a really nice touch. If you are looking something central and a little bit special for your trip to Nice don't look any further ".......... Book this apartment quick, you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: This review summarises all that we feel about the about too. Thank you.
Lovely apartment with character, within walking distance of all facilities, e.g. restaurants, trains, Promenade des Anglais, etc. My husband has Parkinsons disease and he managed no problem. The apartment is very well equipped. We used the washer regularly as it was very warm whilst we were there so tended to wear the 'thinnest' cotton clothes we had. They soon dried on the clothes horse on the balcony. Wish we'd taken fewer clothes!! (A narrow balcony but good to sit out at the table if you wanted). Quite a busy but interesting street below. Lovely boulangerie/patisserie round the corner from which we often bought fresh bread, and pastries ....mm
Although there is no air conditioning it didn't bother us as there are shutters and canopy, to keep out the sun if you want and the portable fans did their job well.
Very good spacious bathroom with shower over the bath. Great separate shower also. Plenty of cupboard space for all bits and pieces. All very clean, new looking and well maintained. A separate toilet situated next to bathroom - also very modern.
Lovely beach but pebbly. We bought swimming shoes - 10 euros a pair and it was worth it as we went swimming regularly.
Celine, who lives on the ground floor was there to greet us - very late as the plane had been delayed. She had bought us some milk as shops were closed and we were very grateful for this kindness. Celine is a lovely person, very charming and helpful, always there if you need her. She is a real treasure and it is very reassuring to know that there is someone like her to turn to. We did seek her help one evening coming back from a meal (near the end of our hol.) as we had been robbed by a gypsy. I think she (maybe with others hidden, who knows) spotted my husbands vulnerability and stole his wallet and cash. Luckily no cards as we keep these separate. Celine advised us and we went to the police station next morning. They were very good. I know these ferrel people are all over Europe not just in Nice but please be aware and keep your money safe - preferably in a money belt I would suggest.
We used public transport to visit places, e.g. Monaco/Monte Carlo - train to Entrevaux (medieval like village). Cost is very reasonable.
Good supermarket nearby, fruit/veg market is wonderful!
We look forward to visiting Nice again in the future - indeed we would visit this lovely apartment again, safe in the knowledge that we already have a friend in Celine.

We really appreciated all of the qualities of your apartment. Celine greeted us at the start and set us on the right track for everything and she was there on the last morning to say goodbye. We had no problems whatsoever with anything and particularly enjoyed the roominess and the sunny balcony for our morning coffee and croissant

Many thanks to the owners for this warm, well equipped, well furnished flat, an excellent base, close to promenade,shops, train station and buses, from which to explore Nice and the eastern cote d'azur. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Delighted they had such a good time- the flowers they caught at the Carnival, from the girls who throw them from the floats, still fill the apartment with colour.
Three weeks - much of it alone - in November/December in an unknown apartment can be a long time if it doesn't come up to scratch. But this apartment not only came up to scratch, it exceeded all (high) expectations. I loved it - from the first warm welcome from Celine who explained everything (and even set up this Luddite's laptop and iPad) to my reluctant departure. The apartment is in an ideal situation, very comfortable and has all mod cons. Morning coffee, a fresh baguette (from the boulangerie a minute away) and a Kindle on the sunny balcony, while England shivered, is hard to beat. The apartment is within easy walking distance of sea, station and main shopping area and there are lots of local shops and restaurants very close. Nice itself is a lovely place with a very good and cheap transport system which gives easy access to all the places along the Cote d'Azur and to the attractions in Nice itself. Thank you, Ray and Jacky, for providing a wonderful home from home. I'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this lovely review- we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much. We are very fortunate in having Celine, our property manager, living as a neighbour in the block and being so responsive to guests' needs.
The three words above are exactly how i would describe our stay at this apartment. The directions, communications, and greeting on arrival were brilliant - The apartment is absolutely wonderful! Best of all in a perfect location - 5 minutes from the promonade, 10 to the messena and 5 minutes to the supermarket! The apartment was clean, very well equipt - even down to use of cushions and parasol for the pebbly beach. I would 100% recommend this apartment and we look forward to definitely coming again :) xx

just what is says on the tin. A good location for a Christmas break away from the cold of the UK. Lovely apartment, well appointed and central. A wide choice of excellent, value for money restaurants and sights within easy walking distance. Easy walk to train station to visit other Cote dAzur towns. A well loved and central holiday apartment in a vibrant, chic, warm, city coastal location.
