I stayed in Villa Magdalena with my spouse and we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The house itself was situated near the port and the city center (old town and new) was within walking distance, but the neighborhood was far enough from the commotion of restaurants, bars and traffic. As a person who values peace and quiet, this spot was the perfect place to stay. Our balcony overlooked the courtyard, so no noises from the street below could be heard.
The family who runs this place speaks English only a little, but we did not find this a problem. They were very friendly and eager to help us. The breakfast served every morning was quite basic with a selection of cheese and freshly baked bread and pastries, but the atmosphere in the breakfast room with French music playing in the background made up for whatever the breakfast might have lacked.
The only negative thing I have to say about this place is that there were no closets or drawers in our room and thus no place to put our clothes and things out of sight. There were a couple of hangers and shelves, but not enough of those either.
In any case, I would warmly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for an intimate yet private place to stay in Nice for a couple of days.More
