“Ideal Location”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Located just off the Maison Carre square, this apartment in an old building is ideal for exploring the sights of Nimes. The owner, Gordon, was extremely friendly and gave us a friendly welcome and lots of useful information about places to visit and local restaurants - on his recommendation we had lovely tapas and cocktails at the Royal Nimes hotel around the corner which was so good that we went back the next evening for a meal. A lot of attention to detail has gone in to decorating the apartment and anyone who loves opera would adore it. A nice touch was a red rose and a bottle of rose on our arrival. All of the sights of Nimes are easily walkable from here and it is a short walk in the morning to the indoor market for fresh bread/pastries. If you decide to stay here, go for a meal or a coffee in the rooftop restaurant at the art gallery opposite from where there are amazing views. A lovely place to stay - the only downsides are that parking is in a nearby car park and is expensive and this isn't for you if one of your requirements is a power shower, however the bathroom is beautiful, high-ceilinged and also has a washing machine. Would recommend.

“Excellent location, full of character”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Wonderful décor based on operas. Right near the Roman temple in the middle of town. Gordon was very helpful with information and advice. He even provided a welcome bottle of local rose. All the facilities worked fine. We spent a really enjoyable week there.

A pleasure to deal with Gordon from start to finish. Opulent flat decor, immaculately clean, cosy, value for money, and perfect location in the centre of nimes opposite carree d'art, a stones throw from the maison and 5 minute walk from the jardin and arena. Supermarket few minutes walk for all necessities.
Enjoyed our 5 day stay here and would definitely recommend to all! Felt like a home from home

Our stay in Nimes was absolutely wonderful, first of all because we were in this glamorous, Opera themed apartment that is very well located here in the town, everything is right on your doorstep. And secondly because Gordon is the perfect host. Everything is well explained and organized and he instantly answers any request and last but not least the ballet and concert show we were invited to see at his home theater were a new and really enjoyable experience. We had great fun :-)
Thank you Gordon!

What an adventure it was to stay at Opera Diva>We were very fortunate to have met Gordon (.Although we had a hick-up to start which was mainly our fault) We just clicked.....and were lucky to have spent a lovely evening with Gordon and his friends.The apartment was huge ,with just the two of us .As our friends had to cancel at the last minute due to ill health.Opera Diva is in a fantastic position ,on the same street as the Maison Carre,and about 200 meters from the market.We were able to walk to almost everything. the Les Arenes the Jardin de la Fontain etc.We loved Nimes,and I said to my husband while walking one day ,"who needs Paris"!! It was great to have a washing machine and dryer .It's good to have clean clothes when travelling! We stayed in the Margot and Rudolph room which was comfortable,although the pillows could be updated.The apartment feels like you are living on a stage set ! It was wonderful.Also Gordon came to help us with our bags on the bus to the station,for our trip to Barcelona.It was so kind of him to help us oldies (70&68 yrs).In all an excellent experience ,we hope to return!!!
