We stayed at Maeva in august 2007.
The location is a little outside central Nice, just a few kilometers from the airport. Maeva is 5 min. walk from the beach and since it is a little away from central nice the beach is not too crowded.
There is a 30-40 min. walk from the appartment to central nice.
The rooms at Maeva are very small - we had a 4 person apartment and the kids had to sleep in the in bunk beds in the appartment entry.
The biggest problem was that the bathroom had a very unpleaseant odour - smelling damp and moldy.
The place is pretty worn but there is a lovely garden and a very tiny swimmingpool.
