A well equipped cosy apartment with amazing views of the cathedral. You need to be fit to climb the 12 sets of 8/9 stairs. We were a little surprised by the cleaning charge of 110 Euros which we had to pay on arrival. This charge could have been made more transparent. The area of old Nice that the apartment is in the middle of is excellent for dining out and appear very safe to wander around at night.

Management Response
4 Apr 2016
The 110 3uros charge is specified in the website, in the preliminary correspondence and also in the Contract that every guest is asked to sign a month prior to the stay. Further, as detailed and specified, this is not just a cleaning charge. It includes preliminary arragements, meet and greet, linen and caretaking during stay. Please read diligently.

“Honestly--- it was amazing”

The apartment was spotless and had the most wonderful of views. It has everything you could want for a short break away.
There are a whole load of stairs to go up and down, but they never impeded how much we enjoyed our stay (only benefited our fitness). The square below was busy every single night and even though i am a light sleeper it was only nice, not at all frustrating. The apartment is small but it is the perfect size for two people. The bed at first seems small also, but as two quite tall average size individuals we never found ourselves without enough room.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this apartment!
The area was magnificent with a mix of old Nice and new Nice, with great transport to other towns only a moments walk away and the beach a moment in the opposite direction. If you're looking for somewhere clean and quiet on the inside, yet busy and happening on the outside then this is the place to stay.

“Excellent location!”
Reviewed 6 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Nice place, very convenient location, everything is within a walking distance. High 6th floor without an elevator. It was not a problem for me though. Many nice restaurants that open very late in the night on the plaza in front of the building, so it's a very lively place. You don't need an alarm clock because of the church bell. I enjoyed my stay a lot!

“Fab appartment”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Appartment is lovely based in old town, perfect location! The only downfall is the amount of stairs to walk up! Near all of the nice restuarants and bars. Appartment small but I think the same for all nice appartments. Would go again!

“Fantastic View busy square down below”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Staying at the Swallows Nest was an excellent experience. The apartment is exactly as advertised. Well kept and perfect for one or two. Looking out the bedroom window was like experiencing a slice of heaven every time. The square down below was always busy and vibrant and I felt like I was right in the middle of everything. By the end of my stay, I didn't want to leave!
