“Location, Location, Location”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

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.

“Perfect 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!

“A perfect location”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

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.

“Perfect location with 2 bathrooms and spacious veranda!”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

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 are a family of 5 (with a teenager and 2 adult children) who had a great 5 nights stay in Nice and at the Amour Violette. Booking through Sunlight Properties was easy and Pamela answered all of my many emails. We were also given a complementary airport shuttle to the apartment through friend-in-france transport, which we booked for our return trip to the airport. Dana, the local property manager,was very helpful with check-in and advices on bus, trains, etc... Check-out was quick and easy. The apartment was spacious, clean, with good AC and Wifi, The location is excellent as it is next to the main Jean Medecin Avenue, with a Monoprix supermarket nearby, restaurants, patisseries, shops, etc... We walked to the Old Town, the promenades, and the train station is an easy 15-minutes walk. At check-in there was only a couple of toilet paper rolls, and no hand or dish soap. We had stayed in several apartments in Europe and know to hit the market to buy basic necessities, but other places provided us with these basic items to start with. It was not a problem for us but there is also a restaurant across the apartment which can get noisy at night. We love our stay in Nice and would definitely come back to this apartment.

Just returned from a superb week in Nice. Apartment was perfect and Dana at sunlight properties looked after us very well - within easy walking distance of loads of restaurants, promenade, old town, rail station Etc. Cool, comfortable and quite during a very hot week.

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. I would have rated the apartment 5 out of 5 apart from the fact that the floors in the apartment were really dirty (but do not worry as the rest of the apartment was clean and beautifully presented and I have every confidence that Dana and Sunlight properties will read this review and ensure this is not an issue in the future).
