DELIGHTFUL AND SPACIOUS QUALITY APARTMENT IN THE VERY HEART OF OLD NICE

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Nice Old Town (Vieux Nice)

light and airy on 4th floor with a LIFT (a rarity in the Old Town) Beach 2 mins

'Maioun Casteu' Our luxury (our daughter says we should call it 'boutique') and very spacious (NON SMOKING) one bedroomed fourth floor apartment is in one of the nicest streets in the very heart of the Vielle Ville of Nice. A lift whisks you high up among the roofs where it is bright, airy and full of light . It is just round the corner from the beautiful Place Rossetti and it's bars restaurants and famous ice cream shop and Baroque Cathedral. Only 200 metres stroll from the beach and the famous Cours Saleya Market. It is even closer to the lovely park on the 'Chateau Hill' It is perfect for a romantic short or longer break at any time of year (Nice gets 320 days of sunshine) You do not need a car as the airport bus (3 euros each way) stops at the Gare Routiere only 100 meters away and with the new tramway system access all over Nice is quick and easy and the bus system is excellent. The bedroom is quiet and cool at the back of the apartment with a 'juliette' balcony.

Nice is a lovely place to visit at all times of year, it is generally mild in autumn and spring and even at Christmas we have sat outside in shirt sleeves. There is lots to do for all tastes. The Old Town is more like an Italian Village than the oldest part of a large city. It has more galleries than anywhere outside Paris and more restaurants of every type than our guests can experience in many visits.

Stroll along the famous Promenade Anglais, walk among the ruins on the Castle Hill and gaze at the stunning views over the Baie des Anges; Shop till you drop; then enjoy a romantic candlelit meal at the 'Tire Bouchon' - our favourite among many, then return to the apartment to enjoy one of the DVDs in our library selection.

View the Monets and Dufy's in the Musee des Beaux Arts or the modern art in MAMAC or the Matisse Museum

Great apartment

  • Review Submitted: 11-Jul-2011

Really lovely apartment in the heart of the Old Town. As such, it is perfectly placed for the beach and for the bus routes that go along the coast or up into the hills. The kitchen, dining area and living room form a large, bright open plan space that looks out onto the street below. The bedroom is at the back of the apartment and is therefore isolated from any street noise. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped; it even includes a dishwasher, whilst the washing machine is tucked away in a utility cupboard. It was a real pleasure staying at the apartment and helped to make our holiday even more special. Thoroughly recommended.

really nice apartment, located in the historic center, 2 minutes walk from everything you need (bus, trams, sea, city life ..).
A provision is even dishwasher, washing machine, vacuum cleaner and iron!
On the fourth floor but a lift (a comfort in Old Town) offers a beautiful view on the street.
Only problem Nice car parks .. light matches ..
The property is available and gentle! Recommend it!

What a lovely apartment and a perfect location. You have evrything you need to make your stay very comfortable and the benefit of good planning in the layout of the apartment. One big advantage is the bedroom is at the rear of the apartment which makes for very peaceful nights. There is also no noise from other apartments in the building. Last time we visited Nice there were major excavations everywhere as the tramline was under construction. This is now finished, the tramline is wonderful, (easy link to the two train stations), and the tramline is three minutes walk from the apartment. The bus station is the same and you are already in the heart of Old Nice with all its attractions. The front is an easy 5 or 6 minutes away and Castle Hill the same. We followed suggestions in the owners guide, (in apartment), for restaurants and had some wonderful meals out, (particularly Pamir and Cous Cous). We are keen walkers and had several all day walks so the lift in the apartment block was very welcome several times. There is also TV/Sat. Link/DVD's and a music box, we just never got round to using them as there is too much else to do. I am sure this combination of excellent facilities with a perfect location will prove to be very enjoyable for everyone using it.

An appartment that offers everything!

My husband and I have just returned from Nice and the appartment offered everything that anybody could wish for - even cookery books, guide books and a dictionary and lots of information about the area and recommendations for restaurants, etc.! It is ideally located in the old town near to restaurants, cafes, the beach and the amazing daily market. The airport bus drops you within minutes of the appartment and the train service to beaches along the Riviera is excellent.
