ABOUT US: My husband and I live in Nice so our apartment in Le Cannet will definitely be your "home away from home". After we hand over the keys to your for your stay and wish you an excellent vacation, you likely won't hear from us. If, however, you need pick up/drop off at the airport or recommendations on where to eat we can help there too. We both speak English and French fluently and my husband speaks some German.
Interaction with guests
My husband and I will be there to meet you when you arrive and will stop by to pick up the keys when you leave. Other than that, the apartment is your home for the duration of your stay.
Absolutely no smoking in the apartment please.
Remember that the pool is for the enjoyment of those in the building. Please be respectful of the building tenants and keep the noise to a minimum.
The towels/linens are for use within the apartment; please bring your own beach towels (for use on the beach or by the pool).
My husband and I moved to Nice, FR in 2010. Prior to that we were both living in Toronto, Canada. In February 2010 we decided that we'd had enough of winters in Toronto and that life on the Cote d'Azur was more for us.
We both enjoy travelling and meeting new people. Luckily, we get lots of that from work. We also enjoy coming home too, putting our feet up and enjoying a glass of wine after a long day. Because most of our travel for work takes us to cities across Europe, when we travel for pleasure we enjoy sitting on a beach where we can people-watch, chat, and enjoy a drink.
