The taxi dropped us off right out front of the door and we walked into the lobby of this beautiful building. I looked around for the elevator, and looked and looked and looked. I could have sworn there was an elevator when I booked. I had promised everyone an elevator, but, there was no elevator.
We texted our host, who came over in about 10 minutes to let us in and give us the lowdown. She conformed that there was NO ELEVATOR, but there were 96 steps.
We were here for 6 nights and would be up and down the stairs at least twice a day, fortunately only twice with luggage. My entourage assured me that they still loved me.
This apartment is in the center of it all.
- 2 blocks from the beach and Promenade des Anglais
- 3 blocks from the Old Town and Cours Saleya Market
- right on the main square and close to Promenade du Paillon park
The apartment could sleep 6 (fold out couch) and was very spacious for the 4 of us. The cost for 4 people for 6 nights was $1,844 CAD. It had laundry, air conditioning, cable, good wi-fi, a roof top belvedere with a great view of the square, a bottle of cold Rose wine in the fridge, but, it did not have an elevator. Did I mention, that it did have a delightful chilled bottle of local rose wine in the fridge, to help us relax from our stair climbing.
2 annoying problems here:
- a musty smell in one bedroom, likely from the wall mounted A/C unit
- broken tiles on the floor of the shower. |Bring shower shoes.
Without further ado, here are the photos.

Those bloody stairs and the entrance lobby.

If you get the idea that we spent a lot of time up on the bevedere, you would be wrong, but we did enjoy frequent short visits.
