Overview

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

Located on the 6th floor with a recently updated, reliable lift, our apartment is ideal for 1 or 2 persons.

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...

What makes this apartment unique

Outstanding views, location, and quiet.

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."

Perfect apartment for our week getaway

  • 5 of 5

As soon as my husband and I walked into the apartment we were thrilled with what we saw - it is exactly as it looks in the pictures. Fantastic view from both the living room and the bedroom with lots of light, antique but comfortable furniture and a really well appointed kitchen complete with staples such as spices, coffee, sugar, etc and even a welcome bottle of wine and package of cookies ! All paper products and cleaning supplies, including clothes soap and fabric softener were provided. All this gave us a good feeling on arrival. Hortensia was there when we arrived and gave us a very thorough introduction and useful information about the apartment.

Our favourite destinations were Monaco, Monte Carlo, Cannes, St Paul de Vence, the Rothschild villa and all the villages on the coast between Nice and Monaco. It really is a stunning coastline. We took the train to Cannes ( train station is a 45 minute walk away ) but used the bus for everything else - it's more scenic, very inexpensive and much handier with a bus stop outside the door for most destinations.

We had lunches out but ate dinners in because we were always tired after full days of walking and touring - it's a delightful apartment to have a meal right at home. There are a couple of smaller supermarkets within a ten minute walk but we preferred Intermarche ( 15 minute walk ) because it is larger and has greater variety.

There was an air traffic controllers strike the day we were supposed to leave and our flight was cancelled, so we had to book a 6am flight the next day. Luckily we were able to stay in the apt one more night and Hortensia booked us a taxi for 4am. Lost some sleep that night wondering if the taxi would show up but he was right on time !

This apt was perfect for us because we enjoy walking, it is slightly uphill from town so anyone who isn't too mobile might want to take a bus which stops right at the apt.

Thank you very much Olivia for giving us the opportunity to stay in your lovely apt.

Wonderful Apartment and Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent seven weeks in this apartment...Having stayed in other rentals in Nice none of them compared to this one for comfort, equipment, location, views, and joy of working with the owner....

When we read the reviews last spring we knew that we must try this apartment after seeing photos and reading the comments...We knew the minute we walked in that we had found the ideal place. After spending seven weeks in it beginning December 8, 2014 we can say that it lives up to all the glowing reports by former tenants... We've rented many places in other countries and in USA but this was by far the best equipped and the most wonderful owner to work with that we have experienced...Thank you for that Olivia.... You are so much a part of this apartment with your history of it and thank you for making it so special. You devoted so much time to us patiently answering questions and it has been a privilege to know you. We love NIce and having this apartment made the stay so much more rewarding. We're coming back next year...

Great to come home to

  • 5 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 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 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 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.

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.
