What a little gem
What a little gem Artistes Tresor is! My family (me plus my husband and three teenage sons) stayed here for a week and we couldn`t have been more comfortable. We really felt like part of the community. The apartment is right in the old town on the second floor of an old building with great views over the bay. We spent hours sitting on the lovely little balcony happily watching the boats coming in and out of the bay. It was an easy stroll to all the restaurants in the town and the little supermarket is almost next door! The beach is also an easy stroll along the harbour wall. And the train station is a five minute walk down the hill and gives access to lots of interesting places up and down the coast - we made day trips to Eze and Ventimiglia in Italy. The apartment is very comfortable and immaculately clean and felt like a home from home.

Great base for exploring the South of France
We stayed at the apartment for a week in the beginning of June. The apartment looks exactly like the pictures posted online and is in excellent condition: luxurious and comfortable. The view from the living room onto the bay is amazing. We couldn`t stop looking out the window and saying "We can`t believe we`re here!" A wonderful place, with easy check-in and out, and great amenities. The parking space makes this place an ideal base for exploring the south of France for vacationers with a car. The beach is about a 10-15 walk from the apartment, with the old town being along the way. The kitchen is great for preparing some meals at home and enjoying breakfast on the wonderful balcony. Wifi in the apartment allows you to stay in touch. After spending the day in town, the walk uphill back to the apartment allows you to work off some of the calories from the copious goodies you eat. The walk home up the hill may be a challenge for some, but we found it invigorating. Would love to come back!
