Belle Sommet – Exquisite views!! Apartment

Amazing apartment with fantastic views
Posted on: 15/02/2017

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights. From the time we got there until we left we were always amazed by the view. The place was spotless when we arrived. Lots of stairs but it’s well worth every step. Great location, easy walking to everything. Close to the beach as well. Will defiantly stay there again when I’m back in Nice.

One of a kind!
Posted on: 15/02/2017

Once again, an absolutely magnificent ecperience! The flexibility of the staff, the efficiency of renting and communications and of course the appartment itself. The most spectacular view, everything else fades in comparison, a clean, perfecty equipped and clean apartment! And thanks again for the wellcoming basket!!

Warm service and the most wonderful view
Posted on: 15/02/2017

A remarkably beautiful and tastefully decorated apartment with the most stunning view of Nice from every window! Everything went perfect. We really appreciated that the friendly hostess met up at the closest busstop and accompanied us to the apartment, which lies in a quiet part of the old town next to Parc de la Colline du Château. It is steep and many steps up to the apartment. But the view is definitely worth it!

The perfect stay
Posted on: 15/02/2017

We absolutely loved this apartment – the views from the balcony were amazing! The apartment was very clean & spacious and had everything to make our stay comfortable. Location couldn’t be better – moments away from Colline du Chateau and close to lots of restaurants, cafes & quaint little shops in the old town.

Posted on: 15/02/2017

  It was a really nice appartment with amazing view, very cosy, with lots of charming details a beautiful atmosphere, it really has a nice spirit, it has everying in for a few days of staying in Nice.

Worth the climb!
Posted on: 06/04/2017

We loved our stay & can’t get over the amazing views from every window. Few steps to climb however so very worth it for the views. Elena & Jenny (apartment managers) were very helpful, assisting us with confirming tours, booking taxi pickup & also helping us with our heavy luggage on arrival. Very comfortable & cosy even on a rainy day

Great value professional service excellent location outstanding view from the apartment. Highly recommended

Cozy apartment, beautiful view.

Stunning views!
Posted on: 12/05/2017

Our stay was just about perfect from being met by Nancy from th 98 bus to leaving. The apartment is certainly not for the faint hearted when arriving with a suitcase! The climb is worth it what amazing views! We felt very privileged, it’s a view you could never tire of. The position of the apartment is convenient for everything(especially the little bakery at the bottom of the hill).

Enjoy the fantastic views
Posted on: 09/06/2017

The apartment is in a great location with fantastic views across the Old Town.  The inside of the apartment is very well equipped, with a large comfy bed and furnished to a high standard.

We specifically booked this apartment, rather than alternatives, for the small balcony providing a great place to enjoy meals, drinks and snacks etc, whilst enjoying the fantastic views and sunshine.

Very helpful
Posted on: 09/06/2017

We felt extremely welcomed on arrival. The lady who met us was so helpful and gave us some great tips. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wishes to stay in Nice.

Remarkably beautiful apartment

Spectacular View
Posted on: 20/06/2017

We spent a wonderful week in Nice, this was our fourth visit.

The apartment was stylish and the view from the balcony spectacular. Everything about our stay was just right.

We will definitely be back.

Perfect apartment for exploring old Nice (and beyond!)
Posted on: 10/08/2017

We stayed at Belle Sommet during the height of an august heatwave and the air con was most welcome! It’s a gorgeous, clean and well equipped apartment with the most lovely views over old Nice. Very peaceful at night. Really convenient for exploring the old town and about a 30 min walk from the station (or shorter by tram) for exploring the wider area. There is a narrow balcony- perfect for a relaxed breakfast. There are a lot of stairs so if you have heavy baggage or mobility issues it may not be for you but otherwise I can’t recommend highly enough. One of the local managers for the company who run the apartment met us at the airport bus stop and was really helpful- explaining things to see and transport etc. 

Incredible view
Posted on: 24/08/2017

This place was unreal. 100x better than the photos. It was honestly so beautiful I never wanted to leave. There are a ton of steps to walk up.. Didn’t personally have an issue with it, but I don’t think my parents would have struggled with it a bit. Totally worth it for the view. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Looking to book again soon!
Posted on: 26/09/2017

Good location with views from every window. Didn’t want for anything during stay.

Smooth experience with STAY YNA
Posted on: 27/09/2017

Had a lovely time here in Nice! We loved Old Town, so for us, the trip up the stairs to the house wasn’t so bad. By visiting Old Town, you’re already half way there! The AC was much appreciated during the hot afternoons, especially since it stayed pretty warm at night too! And the balcony was perfect for having lunch or dinner at the house, sharing some wine, bread, and cheese from the nearby supermarket. Amazing view from every window in the place. And checkin was super easy. We were given a bunch of helpful advice. Also, I forgot a suit in the closet and they helped ship it back to me! Very grateful for this!!

Thank you so much for a supplying us with a great home for our vacation. It was perfect in every way
Posted on: 27/09/2017

We had a wonderful stay in this apartment. The view is completely unique, and justifies the little walk up the climb from the old town.  We are hugely happy that we chose this apartment. Yes, it is on a hill, but it should be affordable for most people. The communication between the host fled well and we were met at the agreed place when we got to town. After being shown around the apartment, we received lots of useful information about the city and surrounding area. Appreciated the welcome gift too If we travel back to Nice, we will not consider other places to live.

We will think about the beautiful view from the balcony for the rest of the year!
Posted on: 04/01/2018

Beautiful place with an amazing view from the balcony. The apartment is located on one of the highest points in the old town, delivering a breathtaking view of the city and the sea. Nevertheless, you need not more than 5 minutes to reach the beach, promenade, market and coiline du chateau. This place worth every single cent. Highly recommended.

Amazing Apartment

“Beautiful apartment with amazing view! Charming and wonderful, near great restaurants, market, and beaches. ”

Absolutely Fab!
Posted on: 12/09/2018

Just want to say that the apartment was fab, and ticked all of the boxes. It was great to be right in the heart of old town but without all the noise! We were very happy with our choice, so thank you

Very stylish

“Sensational views, sparkling clean and stylish. Very calm, high above the old town yet less than 5minutes away by foot.”

Posted on: 07/01/2019

The photos do not do this place justice- if we could have stayed longer we absolutely would have. BEST VIEW IN THE WORLD!!! Everything was so clean and there was tremendous attention to detail- clean modern space in a fantastic location in Nice. Will definitely be returning

Modern Apartment

One of the most beautiful locations in Nice. Fantastic location in the old town with great views in all directions. Modern apartment in old building with charm

Amazing apartment

A million $ view and a well appointed apartment. We could have asked for more

Posted on: 07/05/2019

Everything I read about this place was accurate and even though I anticipated a great place, it truly was even better than expected. As others said, the views were spectacular- something I did not realize I valued so much until actually seeing the city from my bed at night and in the morning. The space is completely renovated and pristine. It is especially good to know that the bed is EXCELLENT. I had spent the night prior at a 5 star hotel where the bed was not even close. The stairs are a lot to navigate with heavy bags so if possible, pack light, or simply go slowly. Ask Elena for recommendations- She is full of information and gave us amazing tips- especially her restaurant picks. Dining out can be so personal depending on your taste and budget and she really hit the nail on the head in terms of true local authenticity and value. The location is wonderful- literally 5 minutes from all the great squares, restaurants the wonderful market and promenade. As far as any safety concern, there is nothing to be afraid of. Lots of activity in the building and friendly neighbors. There is a lighting system in the halls that you should ask about- my daughter lives in Paris so she knew how to navigate the hall lights but for visitors it would not be known. Also, as I have learned throughout France, people like to stay out and get home very late so you should definitely close the bedroom door. The building is not noisy but as I said, it’s very typical for people to come home at 4 or 5 in the morning! Having a laundry machine and dishwasher was fantastic. The shower was great- bigger than typical apartments and great pressure.

nice clean apartment

A very nice and clean appartment with a wonderful view of the old town of Nizza

Amazing apartment!
Posted on: 17/05/2019

Apartment is amazing! Especially breathtaking view and location. Will come back again for sure, thanks for great service and hospitality.

Thank you for the memories
Posted on: 22/07/2019

“Laura’s place was absolutely beautiful. Yes, there are stairs to get up there, but the view from the balcony is SO worth it. We had an incredible golden hour evening sitting on the balcony drinking the provided welcome rose wine. The bed is very comfortable! We had a small hiccup on the first night that was swiftly resolved by Elena & Jenny – I so appreciate their help, communication, and swift action in resolving the issue. This really is THE location to stay in Nice, the old town is a vibrant place to walk through at night with live music, countless restaurants & cafes, and great shops. Thank you for the memories!”

Wonderful apartment

The perfect place for any kind of stay in Nice

“The view from this apartment is really as good as it gets. The flat is very nicely decorated. Everything worked like a charm. We very much appreciated the small, considerate things like welcome wine and nibbles or washer/dishwasher tablets. The perfect place for any kind of stay in Nice!”

Apartment is in the best of locations
Posted on: 17/09/2019

“This apartment is in the best of locations even with all the steps to reach it. Don’t underestimate the climb as if you’re not up to it then it will be a struggle, especially with big bags like we had. But overall it was worth making the way up there for the stunning views. Photos don’t quite do it justice, has to be seen. We slept really really well, beds are super comfortable. Shower although not as modern as the rest of the place was very nice and pleasant. Aircon in the apartment which was really convenient as it was still really hot even though it’s September. You are right in the middle of old town which is where we based ourselves – plenty to explore and lots of great places to eat nearby. Worth going over to Ville Franche and Monaco whilst you’re here – the train station is about 30-40 min walk away but you can also get the tram. An Uber cost us €15 from there. Easy enough to cook in the apartment or get an uber eats and eat on the balcony. Thanks for a lovely stay, we would definitely recommend and come back again.”

Home away from home
Posted on: 20/09/2019

“Could not have asked for a better location and unit to make our stay in Nice exactly as planned. The unit felt like a home away from home, surrounded with beautiful views and nestled into the heart of Old Town Nice. Would strongly recommend to anyone traveling in this area !”

Such an amazing view and location
Posted on: 26/09/2019

“Such an amazing view and location! We loved staying in Old Town and just sitting on that balcony. Such great hosts and the place was very clean. Would highly recommend!!”

Nice balcony with good views

“Very nice and clean apartment / studio with a nice balcony with good views”

Most peaceful place in Nice
Posted on: 09/10/2019

“Stunning views from the cute tiny balcony of the city and sea. Located right RIGHT by the gate to Castle Hill, the prettiest, most peaceful place in Nice with 360 views and a waterfall. Fantastic location, walkable to shopping on Jean Medecin shopping, beach, port, buses to nearby towns, and plenty of boutique type stores/restaurants/boulangeries/etc. Lots of stairs up to the place, so you can absolutely indulge in that second pain au chocolat! 

Place, views and location were superb
Posted on: 17/10/2019

“Place, views and location were superb. Definitely take up Elena/Jenny Pizzeria recommendation. The best pizza we had on our Europe trip.”

Really wonderful stay
Posted on: 23/10/2019

“Really wonderful stay. Very comfortable and spacious apartment. Like everyone else said – there are a ton of stairs to get up to the place, but the view is well worth it. We loved our time in Nice!”
