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!

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

Great for the Tennis Masters and the seafood!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Nice primarily to go to the Monaco Tennis Masters, which was really good this year. Transport links to Monaco were well organised which made it very easy. It was only while we were here that we started to explore Nice. The apartment is in a great area at the edge of the old town making it ideal for walking everywhere. The new Promenade du Paillon which stretches along the covered-over river has been dressed as a wonderful green garden with water features. We walked all the way from Place Massena to Place Garibaldi where we found a wonderful seafood place called the Café du Turin. Highly recommended!
We wanted to stay longer but unfortunately we had to get home. We have decided to come back in the autumn. Thank you for your lovely apartment. I will be in touch.

WOW!! Perfectly placed in Nice!!

  • 5 out of 5
We were returning to Nice for the 4th time (we love the Cote'd'Azur) and looking to stay right in the heart of the town. As we were driving from the UK we wanted something central but with easy parking (big multi storey car park really close by) ... well we found the perfect place. This beautifully appointed apartment had everything we needed and is beautifully decorated and furnished with a real sense of style. As we walked in the door, we felt instantly comfortable and at home which is what we are looking for in a holiday place. Of course on our doorstep were wonderful cafes restaurants and shops with the market and the seafront just a short walk away and you are also right next to the wonderful "Place Massena". All in all the most wonderful week in a wonderful apartment, thoroughly recommended and we will definitely return very very soon.

So Nice!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first visit to Nice and we really felt we had landed on our feet! The apartment is in such a convenient position and we settled in very quickly. It was so easy to get there from the airport and once we had unpacked we went straight into the market (2 minutes walk!) for dinner. The atmosphere was lovely and within an hour we felt like we had been there for ages!! Our days were filled with exploring, shopping, walking along the front and soaking up the sunshine! The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable and homely. We cooked some delicious local dishes with ingredients from the fruit market which was a joy to wander around. Highly recommended!

A wonderfully happy stay in Nice

  • 5 out of 5
Alexmari is a lovely apartment in a great position at the edge of the old town. My husband and I loved it because we are from Italy and the old town is very italian. Our children loved it because it was so near the sea in the daytime and so near all the restaurants and bars in the evening. Being on the top floor it was very useful having the lift, especially when we were carrying all our provisions home from the market!!
The apartment is such a little haven to come back to after fun filled days. It has everything you need and more!! Your suggestion of places to visit was invaluable. Thank you for a fabulous week, we want to come back next year as there is so much we still haven’t seen. Ciao

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.
