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.

About Olivia Chapman

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

Why Olivia Chapman chose Nice Old Town (Vieux Nice)

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...

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."

Great to come home to

  • 5 out of 5
My sister and I spent two weeks here in September. We felt Le Port was a perfect location. We loved the neighborhood, the local groceries, restaurants, and the view and fresh air from the balcony. It's true, the buses are crowded. We bet on whether we would ever get a seat on the 81. But, we always got where we wanted to go. The apartment is full of character, comfortable, and Sandra is very available to help. We had a great time, and we also found that good jazz station on the shortwave. Olivia does it good.

Lovely apartment with beautiful view

  • 5 out of 5
A great apartment with antique charm and modern amenities. Beautiful view of the harbor from the living room and bedroom. Small table and chairs on the balcony to enjoy a glass of wine in the afternoon. Short walk to the harbor where there are an abundance of restaurants with great food. One of our favorites was La Vigna. The seared scallops and black risotto were fabulous! The #100 bus stop to Monaco is just a few steps away from the apartment. We only had 4 days to discover the beauty of Nice and it wasn't enough. You must hike up the hill you see from the apartment balcony (Le Chateau). Best view of the Cote d'Azur and the Nice harbor and the entire city. Great shopping in old town Nice and they have a open market place on the Rue de Ponchettes. If I'm lucky I will definitely come back. Thank you Olivia for sharing your hillside hideaway!

Experiencing the real Nice

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay in Nice was a delight and a memorable experience. We loved the quaint, traditional apartment (incl the pleasantly old fashioned lift to the 6th floor) rather than a modern impersonal hotel. The views from the balcony were amazing and made it a joy to get up in the morning to sit out and have breakfast . Despite having a bit of an uphill walk each day to get back to the apartment , the accommodation is conveniently situated within walking distance of the beach and old town as well as local shops and restaurants.
I would definitely recommend staying there and look forward to going back again in the future

Perfect French Apartment

  • 5 out of 5
All of my expectations were met and the apartment was a wonderful place to call home for three days. The views from the balcony and inside rooms were magical. I really wanted a quiet place and it was perfect. The bed was very comfortable and sleeping with the windows open and the lovely breeze coming in was heavenly. It is a good walk into the old town, all downhill. I found the bus 81 and 100 very convenient for coming home as they stopped right outside the door. It was a perfect way to live in Nice and everything that the owner and manager did to make my stay comfortable was very much appreciated. I will return for a longer stay next time.

Great views, wonderful decoration, near to the center

  • 5 out of 5
A beatifully decorated apartment with great views of the sea. You can wake up looking at the ships on the sea.

Inside the apartment, you have everything you can need for cooking or even doing the laundry. They give you a card for parking, so you won't have to spend money or time looking for a place. The decoration is really beatiful, with an incredible collection of old books and a beatiful bedroom.

The apartment is perfect for groups of up to 4 people. You have a supermarket very near, the beach at 5 minutes walking and you can get to the port and the old Nice with just a short walk. We loved to go to Promenade des Anglaises.

In the apartment you'll find guides which will help you to prepare excursions and even a guestbook where previous visitors have been leaving their experiences in Cote d'Azur.

Olivia and Sandra are very kind and will help you with anything you can need.

A perfect place to enjoy Nice!!!

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.

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.
