We had a lovely stay in Nice in September, thank you for organising this for us. We loved the apartment because of the location, which was so central to all the great sights and shops in Nice city centre. The apartment was immaculate throughout and beautifully presented by the owner. Once we had overcome the issue relating to the price, I found dealing with Sunlight very easy. You were always efficient and replied to my emails promptly. We would gladly stay at the apartment again and would happily use Sunlight properties in the future.

Appt. was beautiful and spacious and very central. Despite that it was very quiet as it was in a cul de sac. Jocelyn was punctual and very helpful and appt was spotless on our arrival. We went on day trips to Beaulieu, Antibes and Monaco and really enjoyed all of them. We were lucky to have perfect weather in Oct with temps perfect. My 10 year old daughter enjoyed the nearby Ice-cream shop and we used the Boulngerie round the corner every day. I would highly recommend the appt and have done so to friends. Thanks Keith

My friends and I really loved the apartment. There was plenty of room for all 3 of us. It exceeded all our expectations. Beats the heck out of staying in a hotel. One night we took our dinner to go and we ate out in the balcony. That was very relaxing. Everything was spotless (very clean) and we love the decor. We thought the location and the neighborhood overall was great. It was close enough to everything and yet not really in the middle of it all, which was how we like it. The bakery right on the corner was just what we needed. We bought our early morning croissants, brioche, and coffee over there. I don't know about discovery as far as restaurants but a friend recommended Acchiardo and also Cave De L'Origine which incidentally was also one of your recommendations. We went to those places and was not disappointed. We missed going to the La Merenda though. Oh well, maybe next time. Sunlight Properties overall was very easy to deal with. Everything was really straightforward. Christine was great. She was there to meet us within minutes of our arrival at the apartment. She even set the washing machine for us when I told her that we forgot how to work it. Thank you! We really did have a great experience with you and we had a great time in Nice.

Thank you so much for our wonderful stay in your beautiful apartment. There were a lot of things that we enjoyed including the location of the apartment and the modern design of the apartment. The beds were comfy and the water in the showers were warm. The only problem that we had was when we first arrived. It was my understanding that I had to contact someone when we arrived to arrange a place for pick up of the key but no one answered my calls. I guess there was a representative waiting with the key at the apartment. This could have been my mistake or just a mix up of communication.

"Excellent base for Nice" If you are looking for an apartment that is centrally located but quiet at night, this is it. The pictures show Amour Violette as it really is, very spacious, clean, bright and modern - although the terrace is not really as inviting as it might seem, being fairly overlooked by surrounding buildings. The apartment is located in a quiet spot, in an "impasse" or dead end just off a fairly quiet one-way shopping street. The flat is comprehensively (and thoughtfully) equipped with quality fittings except for the absence of a clothes dryer. Good, secure wifi, comfortable beds, good quality linen/towels and two good bathrooms (the second one, an ensuite to the second bedroom, is quite compact but OK - although you need to use the separate toilet out past the living room near the door to the terrace). Access to this first floor flat is via easy stairs. The only odd thing is that you dispose of your garbage by finding a public bin on the street nearby. The location was perfect for seeing everything in Nice and it is in easy walking distance to the station to hop local trains to places like Antibes/Juan-Le-Pins. Service from the property managers was very good, including the provision of very detailed instructions for arrival and detailed info about the flat and living in Nice. The cash security deposit was returned on checkout without any fuss.

"Great Apartment - Central yet Quiet" Making the inquiry and booking the property was really easy. Responses to our inquiry were detailed and immediate. I did get a little nervous when I didn't receive the bill for the 2nd payment right away but all went well. Directions on how to get there and what to do prior to and when you get there was also very detailed. It would be difficult to get lost. Our liaison, Christine was very helpful. She met us outside the apartment within 2 minutes of us getting there to hand us the keys, gave us the tour of the place, gave us instructions on how things worked, where things are, and set us up with the wifi. She also had to go back to the apartment to set up the washing machine for us because we forgot how to work it. The apartment location was perfect for us. You can walk pretty much everywhere. It is central and yet away from it all. There were 3 of us but there was a lot of space even for 4 people. It was very clean, and that is the main thing we look for in a place - hotel or apartment - while on vacation. Everything else is secondary. However, everything else met, if not exceeded our expectations. The decor was very modern. Mattresses were comfortable and the beddings and towels were very pretty. We didn't cook but we did a take out dinner which we ate out at the balcony. There was a bakery right around the corner where we got our coffee, croissants, and brioche. My friend woke really early one morning and went to the Cours Saleya to buy some cheese and meat stuff to eat with our croissant and brioche for breakfast. There was a list provided in the apartment that guests can refer to for places you may need to go to such as the bank. Also, there were recommendations for restaurants to go to. One of the restaurants - Cave De L'Origine - matched one of the restaurants in our list that a friend gave us. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was a great place to go home to after a day of touring.

“If Carlsberg did Holiday Apartments.............” We have just returned from a fantastic week with our children aged 11 & 7 in this superb apartment. Ideal location right in the heart of the town and within easy walking distance to the Old Town, the beach and the station. The apartment is exactly as it appears in the description, beautiful decor and great facilities, the wifi is a definite advantage when researching our day trips and of course always helpful for keeping the kids occupied! The outside space is a lovely place to eat or just simply relax. Dana was most helpful & friendly when we met her on our arrival, she had arranged a taxi from the airport which was well worth it. We would definitely like to return.

“Spacious, clean apartment in the perfect location.” We were greeted by Dana with a smile and she was excited to share the details of the apartment as well as provide information about what to see and do in the area. The apartment was clean and spacious. The location of the apartment was within walking distance for the beach, restaurants, old town and shopping. Dana was accessible by phone throughout our time in Nice. Upon checkout, Ivan was timely and very friendly, handling checkout professionally and efficiently. We were travelling with 4 adults and 2 children and the apartment had more than we needed. We hope to stay here again in the future.

Lovely apartment, exactly as advertised. The apartment is as big as the photos suggest and seems even more spacious thanks to the lovely high ceilings. The apartment is really well equipped with all you could need and in very good condition. The location couldn't be better - minutes from the old town, bus stops and the sea front, and only a short walk (or 2 tram stops) to the station, and yet down a really quiet cul-de-sac - perfect! Dana managed the key pick-up/deposit/etc and she was really organised and friendly and very helpful. We all had a great week in the apartment and would definitely recommend it 100% and, if we return to Nice, will more than likely stay there again.

Perfect location with 2 bathrooms and spacious veranda Stayed here with 4 female friends to celebrate our 40th birthdays. Paid a bit more than we could have but we wanted something nice. Great location for shops, walking to beach and old town. Lots going on a stone through away but in a great quiet spot. Two bathrooms made such a difference and the apartment was nicely air conditioned. Nice comfy beds with open planned livening space and kitchen. With 5 adults we never felt cramp tat all. Best of all was the veranda - whilst only getting the sun between 2pm -5pm we spent our time lounging there. We were lucky with temperature and loved Nice.

We came back yesterday after our holiday in Nice, staying in Amour Violette. We wish to tell you that it was just what we wanted - a spacious, clean and modern apartment for 3 of us, with excellent access to the city. We had a fantastic trip and M Ivan Faudet was most helpful. Our arrival flight was delayed by an hour, but the taxi from Your Friend in France was waiting for us, and our return trip (booked separately) came to pick us up right on time. This is the first time that we have rented an apartment for a city break and if we do it again, we will definitely consult your company to see what you have available. With best wishes John, Barbara and Andrea Sevier

“A perfect location” We spent 5 nights in this apartment and found it to be a perfect location for visiting Nice. The apartment was large, clean and extremely well equipped. There were only 3 of us, but having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms ensured that we did not have to queue to use the facilities. The balcony was a lovely sunny place to sit and eat our lunch. We used the washing machine and were pleased to be able to go home with more clean clothes than dirty ones. The location was perfect for food shopping and window shopping at the many boutiques in the area. It was also near to the seafront and public transport links. The company representative was on hand to show is around and was most helpful in every way.

I inquired about a few of Sunlight Properties' apartments before settling on this location, but Catalina made the booking process very easy and gave suggestions of apartments that were close to each other (I needed to book 2 apartments). Location: in Carre d'Or, walking distance to the Promenade, Old Town, Place Massena, just about everything! We walked in to Old Town to buy baguettes and croissants for breakfast almost every single morning and could easily swing by the apartment again throughout the day after shopping by Place Massena, walking up Colline du Château, etc. Apartment: We were a group of 5 adults and Amour Violette was the perfect amount of space. Beds were comfortable, sofa bed was nice and spacious for my male cousin, and plenty of closet space for our 6-night stay. The open kitchen/living room plan really makes the apartment feel large enough for a group-- we spent one lovely evening in after buying an assortment of cheeses, pâtés, baguettes, wine, and fruit from Old Town. The apartment was well stocked with dishware, flatware, and glassware. It was nice that even though there was one full bath, the other bathroom had a separate toilet/sink and walk-on shower/sink so that we wouldn't have to compete to use the bathroom. Never ran out of hot water. Transportation: An added plus to booking with Sunlight Properties is the complimentary transport from Nice airport to the apartment! There was a slight mixup with the number in our party since I had booked more than one apartment, but this was quickly remedied. Dana was a wonderful greeter and gave us a thorough tour of the apartment before leaving us to settle in. I really can't say enough wonderful things about Amour Violette and Sunlight Properties. They were very accommodating and the apartment itself was a dream to stay in-- I will definitely be booking with them again in the future if I find my way back to Nice!

Situated on a quiet 'impasse' which leads onto pretty street full of upmarket shops, Amour Violette is just 2 minutes from main pedestrianised centre for a great selection of bars & restaurants. Although just 5 minutes to tram stop, nothing is more than 15 minutes walk away, Good restaurant just opposite the apartment entrance (bedrooms on opposite side so no problem with noise at night) and very popular with locals. The apartment is clean, modern and spacious with everything you would need for an enjoyable stay, including plenty of hot water and comfortable beds. Outside terrace, although somewhat overlooked, is a pleasant area to enjoy the warm weather. Sun limited to around 3 hours in the afternoon but will be much longer in the summer. Dana was terrific, meeting us outside the apartment when we arrived and organising transport to and from the airport. Highly recommended. (UK)

Fantastic service all the way from inquiry, reservation and payment to arrival at the airport and apartment. The apartment is large and convenient with all the amenities we could think of. We were picked up at the airport in Nice, fast and efficient transportation directly to the apartment, perfect! When we arrived to the apartment Dana welcomed us and tell us practicalities, showed us what was worth seeing in Nice. During our stay, she was never more than a phone call away if there was anything we needed or if we had any questions, great service! The apartment is perfectly located, a few steps from Place Massena, Promenade de Anglais and Vieux Nice, close to bakery, shopping and restaurants. We really appreciated our stay at SunlightProperties Amour Violette.

Brilliant location in Nice, with all visitor attractions accessible. Well equipped with very comfortable king size double bed and large twin beds. En suite bathrooms were fine. The balcony was enclosed and unadorned, most likely better in the summer, we visited in December. Lighting in sitting room great. Pick up arrangements very good all in all highly recommended.

This was our 3rd rental booked with Sunlight Properties and have to say the best in terms of location and proximity to excellent shopping ranging from your typical high street stores to some very individual independent boutiques. Excellent choice of restaurants within walking distance. Nice Ville station just a 10min walk away to whisk you away to the very salubrious Monte Carlo in under 30 mins. Don't leave your wallet at home you will definitely need it in Monaco! The property as we've come to expect from Sunlight was well equipped with all the gadgets and gizmos you'd expect home from home. Beds super comfy too. Would definitely book this rental again. Special thanks to Hanna who met us at the apartment after being collected from the airport by the complimentary taxi service. Hanna very kindly settled us in and provided very useful tips and hints to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Thank you Hanna!

We (three adults and three kids 9-11) rented this holiday rental apartment for its size and its location; we were pleased with both. The bedrooms were spacious with plenty of closet space, the beds comfortable, and the rooms quiet at night. The sofa sleeper was comfortable for the kiddos as well. the bathrooms were as advertised, the second toilet just off the living area. The living area was as big and comfortable as it looks in the pictures. The kitchen and its seating area were great for morning or afternoon meals, snacks, or drinks. The kitchen was well equipped. The terrace was big and sheltered; we ate several family meals there. Air conditioning worked well, as did clothes washer and dishwasher. The apartment location was perfect - one block to Rue Massena, one of the main tourist strips; two blocks from Avenue Jean Medecin, the main road that leads to Place Massena, shopping, and the light rail. A ten minute walk to the Cours Selaya and Old Town. You can hit the beach in five minutes - we preferred the public Plage Centenaire, right next to the private beach / resaurant La Galet. It has a toilette, a life guard during summer, and a place to buy drinks or rent towels. There were several markets in close proximity; we preferred Spar, two blocks down from apartment on Rue Maccarani. Sunlight Properties was very easy to work with and communicated well. Hanna was there to meet us and available when we had a couple of questions. We would book the apartment and use Sunlight Properties again.

The apartment is perfectly located for visitors who just want to unwind, not drive anywhere and spend a relaxing time strolling through the quaint streets of Nice. It comfortably fits 4 people and all amenities are within walking distance no need to take bus or tram. Plenty of restaurants and shops close by too. We look forward to returning at some time in the future.

Thank you very much Catherine & Diana for having made this our long stay in Nice a magnificent experience. You have made our stay extraordinary. From the first contact with Catherine has been very very fluid, comfortable and giving us all the facilities possible. We will always remember it and also housing is a luxury for any tenant. Everything is well placed, very well thought out down to the last detail and with great pleasure so that you feel at home from the moment you walk through the door. Congratulations to the owners and thanks for making it possible. The apartment is very well located, in the heart of Nice, in a pedestrian access passage that gives a special touch of tranquility and privacy at the same time, very appropriate in our particular case. Close to everything and far from nothing, this location allows you beautiful walks by the sea, by the most popular shopping areas or by the always grateful old Nice. Thank you very much for making it possible, Sunlight Properties, a great initiative with an unusual staff. Catherine, I have no words to hank you for all your support, dedication, facilities and affection. You have made us very happy here given the circumstances. See you soon, always.

Wonderful spot in a fantastic location near to everything. The hosts were helpful and provide a book with tips on how to get around and use appliances etc. Do rent this space, the pictures are accurate. The space is quiet overall and large. Great clothes washer and AC. Tip - Le Bocal is a fantastic restaurant nearby. Open between 12-4pm and worth searching out.

The location was perfect, a short walk to the beach and Place Massena. Plenty of restaurants and bars just around the corner as well as a bakery and 2 grocery stores. Common areas were large and the terrace would have been a perfect spot to spend our evenings had it not been so hot and humid. The air conditioning worked well and made coming back to the apartment an absolute pleasure!
