About Nic Beeby

I am English and have connections with Tuscany in Italy. I wanted to have an apartment by the sea where I could go around the coast to Italy or indeed the other way as far as Spain. It is also great to travel up into the mountains behind Nice. I wanted to be able to walk everywhere with all the conveniences of the old town at my fingertips. 100 years ago the high season was in January and February because the climate and the light was so wonderful. I love to be in Nice as I feel rejuvenated!

Nic Beeby purchased this apartment in 2000

Delightful stay

  • 5 out of 5
Originally going to be a stay just for my wife, Catherine, and me, encouraged to come to Nice by one of our sons and his girlfriend who were staying on holiday nearby, we were delighted that there was sufficient room in the apartment for the other three of our four adult sons suddenly to be able to join us. Nic Beeby was charm personified over the phone whilst making arrangements, and gave us a reassuring sense of confidence. He responded most helpfully as our family plans changed, and gave excellent guidance notes for arrival.

The apartment was ideal in its position near the old town and the sea and a delightful square, and there was plenty of space for a family champagne and brandy cocktails party on one evening before walking to an excellent restaurant by the sea, recommended by Nic.

I felt considerably concerned one day to have had a towel rail come away from the wall in my hand, and called Nic, thinking that I would engage a local craftsman to fix the rail to the wall. No worries at all, he indicated, and more reassurance when Nic said that he knew about the rail, was hoping to have fixed it securely before we arrived but had not managed to arrange that; the charming approach again was most welcome and my initial concerns about potentially being seen as a vandal were quickly dissipated.

The facilities were fine, and although we did not cook anything as such the modern cooking hob worked excellently.

Work was actually going on round the flat whilst we were there, but that was of no consequence inside the apartment itself. There is a good stock of films to enjoy which was pleasant at midnight one evening and would provide entertainment if weather was ever poor.

It was curious to hear that Nic Beeby's wife runs a business from the same Mayfair address as ours; what a small world!

We would be very happy to return at some point.

Owner's Response: It is lovely to hear what a good time guests have had staying at Alexmari! I do try to put myself in their shoes and think how I would like to be treated if I was staying there. I am so glad you all enjoyed going to Le Castel - I think it really fabulous having dinner while looking round the bay in the evening. Do come back soon! Best wishes, Nic

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
May I express thanks on behalf of my wife, her sister and husband and myself for the real privilege of living in your fantastic apartment. It really is superb, it all worked out so well, Two of us in the double enjoying our wet-room shower and the other couple luxuriating in the big bath in the twin room!
The living / dining room is so big and bright and airy that even though the temperature regularly hit close to 30C outside, it was a cool tranquil place to rest at any time of the day or evening.
We tried out several of your restaurant recommendations as well as a few we picked out ourselves - all were delicious. On the one and only wet evening we scurried out to the very close restaurant in 5 A. Mari called 'Le Makasser'. It is absolutely superb and we returned there on a second night and it was equally good; it is very small [only 6 or 7 tables]; highly recommended is the Canard a Miel - best duck I have ever tasted! The salmon was delicious as well.
Your lovely neighbour is a treasure, charming and 'motherly' in so many ways!
After trips to St Paul and to Vence itself, to Antibes, Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu, Monaco and Menton we've covered everywhere within easy reach - we skipped Cannes this time - and all on the great bus service for the unbelievable fare of one euro fifty cents each way
I think it is fair to say that we will be back to Nice and definitely back to Alexmari. We will of course be recommending it to any of our friends and families who are even thinking of the Cote d'Azur for a break.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. It is so good to hear that you all had such an enjoyable time, using the local facilities to the full!! I shall add 'Le Makassa' to my recommended list of restaurants. I have to say that after fifteen years, I sometimes take for granted the wonderful light and airy feel that pervades the apartment. I look forward to welcoming you back when it becomes impossible for you to stay away!! Kind regards, Nic

Wonderful pied a terre in vieux Nice

  • 5 out of 5
Dear Nic. We had the most wonderful time staying at your beautiful flat in Nice. We have been to Nice a number of times in the past but have never enjoyed our stay as much as we did whilst staying at your flat. Not only is it perfectly located being a stones throw from the beach and the delights of the Old Town but it is also beautifully furnished and is set up to be a home from home. We really appreciated all your brilliant recommendations and treated ourselves to a very special evening at la Chevre d'Or - we have never ventured to Eze before but feel it won't be the last time. Many thanks again Nic, we had a truly fabulous time and can't wait to return to your flat next year! Best wishes, Hannah

COMFORTABLE APARTMENT IDEAL POSITION

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and wanted to visit the Côte d’Azur. We decided to base ourselves in Nice and your apartment was perfect, ideally positioned by the Old Town with car parking close at hand. It had everything we needed. For our special celebration we went to the village of Eze, high up with fabulous views over Cap Ferrat. We ate at the Chateau de la Chevre d’Or on the terrace which was magical. We had the most wonderful time in no small way thanks to your lovely apartment. Thank you so much for all your help and advice.

A wonderful holiday in Nice

  • 5 out of 5
When we arrived at the apartment we were delighted at its fabulous location. It is perfectly situated in old Nice, where the charming streets are filled with vibrant restaurants and bars, markets. The apartment was very well appointed and had everything that was needed for a comfortable holiday, it was spacious,bright and airy. The list and map with suggested restaurants, markets, bakeries etc were very helpful, giving us an idea of where things were. We had a wonderful holiday and look forward to going back. Thank you Nick.

Great stay at the edge of old Nice town!

  • 5 out of 5
We came ‘en famille’ to Nice for our summer holiday! The apartment was perfect for us, because of its great position at the edge of the Old Town. The youngsters could walk to the boulangerie in the morning, then onto the beach while I walked to the market to buy all the delicious fruit and veg which I so enjoyed. The apartment was even better than expected; it was light, airy and well equipped, a real ‘home from home’. One day we hopped onto a boat in the port, which took us to the island of Ste Marguerite for the day where we picnicked and swam in a beautifully peaceful cove – a fabulous adventure, we want to come again!!

Owner's Response: Ste Marguerite is lovely!, Next time you should try Isle Ste Honorat which is the other Lerin Island. Its so nice to hear the youngsters liked it too and felt it was like home. Just let me know when you want to come again. Nic

Nice, the Queen of the French Riviera, is at the very heart of life on the spectacular Côte d'Azur.

Founded by the Greeks and colonized by the Romans, Nice's temperate winter climate and verdant subtropical vegetation have been attracting visitors for centuries.

It has a lovely warm and sunny climate, good beaches, interesting museums and galleries as well as an atmospheric street life. The 12 day Carnival in February is an explosion of celebrations culminating in a spectacular firework display.

Nice was Italian until 1861, and the pastel façades and balconies of the Old Town have a distinct Italianate feel. It lies at the eastern end of the Bay des Anges, at the foot of the hill still known as the Chateau for the castle that once stood here.

The Old Town is the most vibrant part of Nice, with its narrow streets, which are packed with boutiques, galleries, artists' studios. Nice's beautiful Opera House is situated here with a varied menu of Opera, Ballet and Classical Concerts.

At the centre of the Old Town is the Cours Salaya, the daily morning market bustling with flowers, fruit and vegetable stalls which make way in the rest of the day to cafés, bars and restaurants.
