The Promenade des Anglais and Les Résidences du Palais de la Méditerranée
The Promenade des Anglais, was built in 1820 by an Englishman, Lewis Way, for afternoon constitutionals. Today this palm tree lined promenade is used by walkers, joggers, cyclist, and roller bladers. The promenade runs the length of Nices ocean front, approximately 7 km.

The complex includes the Residences and a 4 star+ newly restored art deco hotel and casino, Le Palais de la Méditerranée, now one of the "leading hotels of the world". The hotels façade is now a national monument and dominates the Promenade des Anglais.

Le Palais de la Méditerranée is a late 1920s building set on Nices famous Promenade des Anglais on the seafront. The decor reflects art deco design and the french rivieras gambling casino culture, with its pillars and ornate glass decoration.

Friends from Bergen, Norway Jun 2016

We were a group of 4 friends travelling to the Euros this summer. Had a great time at the apartment, the place was clean and well equipped. Exellent location right by the beach and a 15 min stroll to the old town. The apaprtment building is "boxed" by surrounding buildings, so there is practically no noise from the streets.

Lovely flat. Perfect location. Can't wait to go back !

Couple from Garforth, United Kingdom Sep 2015

Excellent apartment, well placed for all amenities, beach, restaurants etc. Very quiet overlooking lovely garden area. pat was extremely knowledgable and helpful too. Only negative is cleaning fee is a little high, but would not deter from returning again.

Reply from Deirdre

Hi Michelle, many thanks for taking the time to write review of our apartment. We are pleased that you found the apartment well placed, in an oasis of calm, and that Pat was a good source of information.

To clarify regarding your comment; "cleaning fee is a little high"; the local handling charge is not a cleaning fee. It is well documented, that this fee is for checking in and out of the apartment by Pat, apartment introduction, as well as provision of bed linen and towels. As you found, Pat is knowledge and helpful, and provides a good service, which is this fee.

Perfect for a holiday in Nice. Great location, ideal facilities.

I like this apartment with its two balconies/terracies a lot, as it is located in the heart of Nice, in a quiet compound with a beautiful garden. The beach is so close, which is really convenient. The other exit leads to rue de France, a lively street with numerous small shops and so close to the pedestrian area. The apartment is well equipped. For me who feels 'at home' in France, not only because of my profession (translator), it is the perfect "base" for a great vacation. This is why we keep coming back (I believe it was our third stay in this flat). Everything, from the booking to the friendly welcome and so competent local assistance, was highly satisfactory.

Isabella, we are delighted that once again, you and your Mother and Father enjoyed your stay in our apartment in Nice.
Thank you for taking the time to review the apartment and for your welcoming comments.

Couple from Glasgow, United Kingdom Jun 2015

Apartment was very clean and we received an excellent welcome. The location is very central with lots of food shops and restaurants in the vicinity. In spite of its central location it is very quiet. The balcony overlooking the gardens is a very pleasant place to eat and to just sit.

Another great stay at 203 Le Baccara. Pat met us at the promenade bus stop and was most welcoming and helpful, even coming in to change the linen for week two. The apartment remains fully equip as described and includes more than you need for a relaxing holiday, with new loungers on the balcony together with mats and umbrella for the beach. The secure internal courtyard and gardens are quiet and peaceful, whilst outside, the streets around the complex seem busier than ever with an even wider choice of restaurants within the immediate vicinity, and with dual access, both to the promenade and the beach, and to the pedestrian area on Rue de France, the apartment could not be better situated. Will & Celia.

I had a wonderful three weeks in March, 2012 and loved every minute of it. My son spent a few days with me initially, then husband came for a week. Was on my own for a few days and felt extremely safe and secure. A family friend came for the final week. Did a lot of sightseeingMonaco, Menton, Cap Ferrat, Villefranche, Antibes, Cannes, St. Paul de Vence. Tickets sold out for the Opera but will know for again. The Trattoria was excellent for Pizzas And felt that Francinni didnt change their menu often enough-love the decor. Found the French extremely helpful and had a better connection with them through my efforts with the language. With regards to the apartment I found it excellent value for money. It exceeded my expectations-I felt its main selling point is its location. To have such easy access to the promenade des anglais was wonderful, and with the exit on to Rue de France you had easy access to shops etc. Also found coming and going to airport by bus fantasticeven with 19 kilos of luggage! The description was very accuratehaving read it several times I knew what to expect. Nice to have the range of books there etc-made it feel homely and had no problem working TV. I would definately recommend it and I have every intention of returning!! Brigette was great-very punctual coming and going. She gave us lots of time explaining how everything worked. Found your little green chair handy for reading at the beach and it was lovely to have the heating in the evenings as it turned cooler. Again many thanks and also for your efficiency in dealing with the rental of the apartment. Kind regards, Anne

"I stayed at this appartment with four others(adults), and found It to be of a high standard and amply big enough for all of us. Everything you could ask for was provided, from iron, hairdryer etc. to cd`s, dvd`s and things for the beach. Very handy for the beach, shops, supermarket, pubs, restaraunts and trams. We were made very welcome on arrival and nothing was a problem. I would definitely recomend it to anyone. Bill Walker"

It was reasonably good value at €1,000 p/w but perhaps there could have been a 10/15% discount considering the current economic climate. It was well maintained and met our expectations in terms of facilities, layout, location, and general condition. The main aspect that did not suit us was the absence of a level deck shower, which would suit a wheelchair user. The description was accurate. One aspect that took us a while to figure out was the VOIP setup. This was unplugged, but when I had time to look at it I figured it out. I would recommend it. but there are probably cheaper options in the same vicinity. In our case we could not afford to take chances on accommodation that we hadn’t assessed in advance. We were met on arrival and helped with our luggage and gave instructions, codes, etc. We also received help when we had to make a few phone calls to for information/help on the first day.

Reply from Deirdre

The client was not aware that during the season, due to the economic climate, we did in fact reduce all our rental prices by 10%. The same period in 2009 was €1,100, whilst the client paid €990 this year.

I have reviewed the correspondence with the client regarding the shower and its suitability for a wheelchair user and see the following comment:

“My question relates to whether there is a walk in shower, i.e. level deck – suitable for wheelchair access. If not we will lift Anna into the bath, which is ok from our perspective.”

Our reply was as follows:

“The shower is not walk in, there is a step, so is unsuitable for wheelchair access.”

We understood the lack of a level deck shower was a not a problem for the clients, based on the above comment.

It was unfortunate, that another guest had unplugged the VOIP telephone, which obviously was human error on the part of our Representative in not noticing this fact and plugging back in.

Finally, we always appreciate the time taken by the client, to review our apartment.

Best regards,
Deirdre

We have had vacations in half a dozen or more rented accommodation, normally on a self-catering basis, and after thirty years of two or three foreign visits a year, and four or five in each of the last six years, we have become tolerably adept at sussing out the good properties. This one was abundantly what we sought. Thus, it was quiet, beautifully clean, well furnished, with excellent beds, abundant hot water, splendidly equipped in the kitchen, and fully darkat night. The addition of the requested duvets was most welcome, and air-conditioning room-by-room was a treasure we don't meet often!The location could not have been bettered. We even managed the TV, though the oven foxed us at times! The things we missed may reflect that we were unusual in actually catering for ourselves foil, herbs, a knife-sharpener, a third tea-towel,and, amongst good cleaning materials, a duster! The only damage we inflicted, to our knowledge, was when we tried to make a daubein the big blue casserole and melted the knob on the lid - sorry! A lidded glass or pottery casserole for use in the oven would have been most helpful. But these really are minutiae. Perhaps the absence of a shelf (for toiletries)in the shower room, and for soap etc in the showeritself, but it's a very good shower. The only comment we would make that comes remotely near the status of a complaint concerns the lighting in the sitting room, more especially lighting to read by. But we really did feel we had outstanding value for money and then some. With every good wish and many thanks - John & Norma.

Date of Arrival : Sep 13, 2008Name on Contract : Garry HelfrickReview Rating : 5/5Review Title : 161640 - "Nice in Nice""Property was as advertsed. Excellent location if your on foot,and good access to parking if driving. Be sure to buy a long term parking pass in the adjacent parking garage if driving, or the parking is pricey. The apartment is comfortable and decently appointed,really lacked nothing. The company rep. was there at the appointed times at the beginning and at the end of our stay. There were many good restuarants in the area, we particularily enjoyed the ones on the site of the market in the Old Towm. The info regarding dining that was in the apartment was also helpful and accurate. Overall our experience both with the accomodation and agency were most satifactory."

Some interesting comments from an apartment guest:"Thanks for the updat ed information on the internet.It was a bit of a nuisance having to go out and get logged on etc, but hey, no big deal, but at least you found the root of the problem. We enjoyed our stay all the same and it was a comfortable apartment.By the way, did Bridget inform you that I fixed the en-suite plumbing. There was a leak from the sink waste. Anyway I removed the drawers and stripped down the waste unit, which was blocked and I cleaned out the pipes and the inside panels and reassembled, so all was well. .Next time we come I will bring my tool box Ha..Ha..just joking.We are still looking for a place in the Nice area. We did not have much of a chance to go house hunting, as we had friends join us, but we will be heading back there in a couple of months, so I will give you a call to check if apartment is available if that’s OK.Well that’s about it for now, thanks again and hope everything is OK with you.Ken & Grace from Aberdeen, Scotland"

Hi Deirdre, just a note to say what a fabulous apartment you have. We really enjoyed our week and spent several days on the sporting plage and used your surf board to the max!!!.I was just about to go shopping one day when Andrea said it's a shame you're going to have to carry a load of heavy stuff, what you could do with is a shopping trolley I wonder if there is one here!I thought I hope there isn't I don't want to go out with an old lady trolley (remembering my Granny wheeling hers around).Needless to say your apartment has every accessory imaginable so I gritted my teeth and went down to Spar towing it behind me !!!!Seriously though we had a super timeBest WishesChris Adams and family

We had a marvellous holiday. The apartment was excellent, spotlessly clean, spacious, well equipped and in a great location. Brigette was most helpful throughout our stay. I would consider the apartment very good value for money and would happily return or recommend it to others. Thanks for all your help.
