FAB MEDITERRANEAN VIEW/WALK TO OLD TOWN & BEACHES-PARKING TOO!

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

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our spacious one bedroom, art deco flat with tall ceilings is situated in a private, gated, residential neighborhood with permitted on-street parking available only to residents and their guests. Located on the 6th floor with a recently updated, reliable lift, our apartment is ideal for 1 or 2 persons but suitable for 3 or 4 quiet close friends or family.

So, come take in the spectacular view and laughter of the gulls from your own balcony while enjoying your morning café and petit déjeuner or before dîner as you sip your apéritifs and watch the coucher de soleil into the Mediterranean.

We’re also able to offer services beyond housekeeping and on-call assistance for the apartment, thanks to the superior management of Sandra Lenk, at a reasonable cost to you. For help finding your way in Nice or beyond, she’ll be happy to take you on guided tours or provide recommendations from the practical such as buying prepaid mobile phones to historic destinations. She’s also willing to lend a hand negotiating the local transportation by taking the bus or tram with you or, if you prefer, on-foot. If cooking is your thing, Sandra can arrange “french cuisine” classes including everything from menu selection and shopping for ingredients to instruction preparing your meal in our apartment.

PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE PHOTOS AND DETAILS!

Guestbook comments from the owner
"We really enjoyed our stay @ the apartment in Nice. The view is spectacular -- the sunset, the boats, the helicopter shuttles to Monaco, the fireworks from Cannes. The location was great for exploring Nice and very easy access by bus to Monaco. With the extreme hot weather, we mostly visited the beaches! We went "canyoning" with http://www.altitude06.com/ For an extra fee, the tour co offered a shuttle to/from the canyon which was well worth it to avoid having to rent a vehicle and drive through the area! The extra space in the apartment was perfect timing as we had caught a bug and needed some time to rest, relax and recover."

We live in rural Vermont with our three beautiful children, but also have a real sense of place and connection with Nice. Scott is the sole-proprietor of a modest home building and remodeling company; Olivia is an artist, recently having gone back to work after ten years at home raising the kids...

Olivia Chapman purchased this apartment in 2009

This vintage 1920s apartment has been in my family for fifty years, and has been owned by my parents, grandparents, most recently my uncle and as of the summer 2009, it is now ours. We use this enchanting apartment when we can, and share it with our French relatives from time to time. We welcome your impressions, thoughts and ideas...

WONDERFUL TRIP

  • 5 out of 5
We traveled to France in celebration of our 60th birthdays. This was our first trip to Europe. This apartment was perfect. It was clean, comfortable, and we felt very safe in the neighborhood. The view was amazing from the balcony.We stayed 2 weeks and used this as our home base to travel all along the Mediterranean. There are many things to do and see that are easy day trips. There are bus stops very close to the apartment. There is
a train station nearby that is walkable from the apartment as well. There are pamphlets and books in the apartment that were helpful with information about the area and suggestions for restaurants and neighborhood bakeries. We would stay here again if we get the change to return. The owner and manager of the apartment were very helpful.

BEST VIEW IN TOWN!

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed in this apartment in early May for 4 nights. Although it's fairly small, it has all the amenities we needed (including a washer/dryer). We especially loved sitting on the deck in the evenings with a glass of Rose, watching the ferries come in and out of port and the planes taking off and landing. The apartment was clean and the manager was very helpful. It's a little bit of a walk into the main part of the city, but not bad. It was also nice to have a parking place close by, although we never did take the car anyplace. We did have a wonderful time in Nice - my favorite was doing a tour on the Segway to Villefranche! So much fun!

MOM & DAUGHTER ENJOY COTE D'AZUR

Mom & Daughter enjoy Cote d'Azur
  • 5 out of 5
We traveled Italy, France and Switzerland for one month and both my daughter & I agreed that of all places we stayed, Palais Bel Mare was by far the closest we came to feeling like we were in the luxury of our own home. The apartment was furnished beautifully with all things you need to enjoy a home away from home and very clean. Olivia & Sandra have done a great job of providing directions, pre-arrival information, and awesome tourist information about the surrounding areas. We explored many areas surrounding the apartment and found it to be very conveniently located to everything we wanted to see and user friendly when it came to public transportation. The apartment is also located close to Old Town Nice and open air market and great beach access. The Port area, which is where Palais Bel Mare is located, is beautiful and the thoroughness of the owner and her assistant in tending to every detail in the well appointed apartment made it delightful as my daughter & I explored the Cote d'Azur from our lovely apartment. I highly recommend.

NICE WAS NICE!

  • 5 out of 5
Was the post card I received 40 years ago from my hubby, then an active duty Navy sailor and I made him promise to take me one day! The city did not disappoint and the apartment was absolutely marvelous. The view from the balcony is one from which you cannot tear yourself away. It is filled with old books, art, and furniture which adds a distinct charm and history. Olivia and Sandra are the best and do ALL they can to be sure your vacation is the best! Thank you Olivia for answering all our questions so promptly. To Sandra thank you for the awesome day of cooking lessons, french lessons and accompanying us to the market at Cours Saleya. Give a pet to Frieda for us!

ICONIC VIEW, HERITAGE BUILDING, IDEAL PEACEFUL LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
An authentic Nice residential apartment on the sixth floor of an art deco building by the architect of the Carlton Hotel [Cannes]. Parquet floor, rugs and vintage furniture. Fully equipped kitchenette and wifi. Still used by the friendly and helpful owner who grew up there so original artisanal paintings and small library. Balcony with iconic views over the Bay and Port. Short walk to the beach to the East of the Port. Fifteen minutes walk to Garibaldi or take the bus from the stop just two minutes walk away. On the bus route out to Eze/Monaco. Perfect for either a short stay [as we did] or a month [as other satisfied travellers commented in the visitors book]. Easy transaction, excellent communications and detailed written instructions for your stay.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
Olivia, please forgive this very late review. Your apartment is a true treasure. We stayed in this wonderful apartment for two weeks in October 2012, and we loved every minute. Olivia was by far the best VRBO owner I've ever dealt with: prompt and organized about every aspect of the rental, and her on-site manager couldn't have been nicer. The apartment is very comfortable, and the view from the balcony is as perfect as the photos. We bought the local rose wine and delicious cheese and watched the sun set every evening. We shopped at the local market and cooked many of our meals in the apartment.
Eating out was easy: the restaurants in the area, within very very easy walking distance (even for us 65+ renters), are wonderful. The bus stop is just across the street from the apartment house so you can easily get down the hill to the port/old town/main bus depot or east to other towns you might want to visit. We never in two weeks felt the need to rent a car. Forget taxis: the local bus costs just 1 euro. We will never visit the south of France again without reserving this apartment in advance. It's that perfect for us! (P.S. My husband just said, "make sure to tell them that we're not related to Olivia.")

Car: not necessary

Our apartment is located just below beautiful Mont Boron, known as the “Hollywood” of Nice. The Club Nautique's public beach right next to the Plongee Aigle Nautique (diving platform) is an intimate, uncrowded bathing spot, within a short walking distance. In the opposite direction, just beyond 'La Réserve de Nice' restaurant, lovely public cliff beaches can be found.

Shop on foot for kitchen staples at a neighboring supermarché or select your petit déjeuner of croissant and baguette from several local boulangeries. A brief stroll to the Port offers lots of dining choices. Or just wander by the harbor’s edge and enjoy the exotic yachts and colorful classic Niçoise fishing boats.

Place Girabaldi, 'Vieille Ville' (old town), Place Masséna, Nice’s Cours Selaya Flower Market, and Colline du Chateau (Castle Hill), as well as the Promenade des Anglais, to name a few popular spots, are also all within walking distance, some shorter, some longer. Local public transport is both an easily accessible and affordable option.
