An excellent apartment, very cosy. It has all that is neccessary for a short stay, or even a long one. All the appliances are very good. Its location is very good, between the Beach and the main train station, in a very quiet neighbourhood. The hostess was very nice and easy to communicate with.

L’artiste is a wonderful apartment. The location is perfect and in a very calm neighborhood. The communication with Catherine from Sunlight properties was perfect. An agent welcomed us at the apartment and showed us around. Transportation from the train station was also accommodated. I highly recommend this stay!

Wegen des Corona-Virus und den damit verbundenen Einschränkungen konnten wir die Ferien nicht so geniessen, wie erhofft. Trotzdem, die Wohnung war sehr geräumig, hell und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Because of the Corona virus and the associated restrictions, we could not enjoy the vacation as hoped. Nevertheless, the apartment was very spacious, bright and tastefully decorated.

Very nice apartment - great location. As part of the rental we were picked up at the airport and dropped off at our apartment, the drive was about 10 minutes. The neighborhood was very nice with plenty of shops and restaurants. Our apartment was spacious, air conditioned and quiet. The wi-fi and television worked perfectly. We loved having a full kitchen and laundry machine. The apartment is within a five minute walk of Place Garibald, five minutes to the beach and two minutes to the port. The booking process was easy and the people we dealt with were brilliant.

We spent a a few days in Nice, the apartment was excellent, very well appointed, with great facilities, the linen etc was of a very high quality and the a/c was fantastic as our stay was during a heatwave. Sunlight arranged taxi transfers from the station which was worthwhile as the drivers spoke English and gave us useful tips on getting around. We had big bags and the apartment has a lift which we needed.

April 2014 My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a week over the Easter holidays. The apartment is in a great location with the port, Place Garibaldi, the promendade and the old town all within easy walking distance. The bus for Monaco/Eze etc is a two minute walk and there are boulangeries and supermarkets around the corner so everything is really on the doorstep. The apartment is exactly as it looks in the pictures and we found it spotlessly clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. There was a great shower and the bedding was of a high quality and very comfortable. We appreciated that there were lots of 'basics' provided such as washing up liquid, kitchen towels, washing powder, coffee etc . We were met at the apartment by the rep , Dana, she was so helpful and had all the hard work of finding our bearings done for us by the time she left. My only criticism of the place is that the communal hallways aren't very attractive but it was very secure and for the most part pretty quiet. I would definitely stay in this apartment again and would recommend it to other couples.

We have just returned from a fabulous trip to Nice. We stayed for 5 nights in this wonderful apartment which is a mere dander to the port and the old town. It was perfect. The apartment is exactly as it looks in the photos; clean, fresh and modern with everything you would need to have enjoyable holiday. The property manager (Dana) could not have been more helpful leading up to and during our stay. my husband and I are just trying to workout when we can go back to this wonderful city!
