NICE PEBBLES: CATHEDRALE - RIGHT IN THE HEART OF THE OLD TOWN

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Nice Old Town (Vieux Nice) - Nice Pebbles: Cathedrale

2-bedroom 5th floor duplex apartment, 20 m2 terrace

This is a holiday apartment oozing class. The superior finish of the Italian travertine floor throughout, vaulted ceilings and luxury fittings combined with the fabulous terrace means it is worth stretching the budget for if you’re a couple who are looking for something special. Friends or family whose top lists of wants are location, outside space and superior finish will be hard pushed to find better.

This is a high spec duplex apartment on the top floor. Whilst you have to walk up four flights of stairs (no lift) to get to it, it is most certainly worth it.

Due to its elevation there is fantastic light and lovely views of the glittering Cathedral dome and the hills of Nice. The rental apartment is in a building typical of Nice's Old Town. The common parts have been recently decorated. There is a famous Pizza restaurant, Pizza du Maison next door.

The apartment is seconds away from the famous Rossetti square and the fabulous terrace overlooks the Cathedral St Reparaté. You could not be more in the heart of the Old Town. It is just a few minutes’ walk away from both the Cours Saleya, Promenade des Anglais and beach and the bus station and a tram stop is a mere five minute walk away. There is also a public car park nearby, which is found under the Cours Saleya. A fifteen minute stroll will get you to the Port and the main shopping district in the modern city centre. The main Nice Ville train station is about 25 minutes away by foot or an easy 4-stop tram ride.

Stretching from the Theatre de Verdun to Place Garibaldi and Place Massena to the Cours Saleya and Promenade des Anglais is the bustling Old Quarter known as Old Nice (Vieux Nice). From early morning to late evening these picturesque streets are alive with cafes, restaurants, shops and bars marking this as the main tourist hotspot.

Our rental apartments in the Old Town of Nice book up fast, especially in Summer months. This is where you are right in the heart of everything and enjoy the ambience and character of these historical winding narrow streets and small squares.

If you like atmospheric night life, bustling café squares, great restaurants and bars everywhere you turn, then the Old Town is most definitely the place for you. It’s also very near the beach and bus station and has a decent two floored supermarket as well as a cinema which offers English language films.

There are numerous bars in Vieux Nice including traditional French, Irish, English, Jazz and Wine bars.

Food plays a big part in Vieux Nice. Our guests are often amazed at the number of restaurants, cafes and brasseries that can be found in such a small corner of town. Chick Pea pancake or ‘Socca‘ is the local delicacy and hungry locals and tourists alike can often be found queueing at Lou Pilha Leva on Place Central and Rene Socca on Rue Miralheti. All around the Old Town visitors can find a variety of tastes from French, Italian, Greek, Indian and Lebanese. The Cours Saleya is the famous farmer's market of Nice set one street back from the Promenade des Anglais, Offering fresh produce and local favourites such as cheese, olives, soaps, fruit, vegetables and flowers from early morning until midday. Monday sees antique traders setting up stalls and selling their wares. In Place Francois the daily fish market comes alive with fresh catches before sunrise and usually finishes a little after lunch. In summer the Cours Saleya and Place Francois is alive in the evening with craft stalls.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Our last week of our honeymoon and staying here could not have made it more perfect ! This is a stunning apartment. The smells coming from below were just amazing while we thought about what we would do for the day sitting and relaxing. The hike up the stairs hopefully helped with all the delicious wine and food we enjoyed each day. Nice is a charming city and we loved getting lost around its streets each afternoon. And sleeping in was pretty awesome too – lovely accommodation-truly fantastic! We hope to come back and enjoy again soon. Thank you!

GREAT APARTMENT AND TERRACE BUT SCRUFFY BUILDING

  • 5 out of 5
Our vacation in France spanned eight weeks and the week in this beautiful apartment – with its glorious air conditioning in 38 + degrees weather – was in the top five highlights. Nice Pebbles made this holiday a 5 star experience and took very good care of us. The sounds and smells from the cafes, bars and restaurants were wonderful as was the roof terrace. What we didn’t like was the scruffy entrance and dirty element of the Old Town, but we found this was the norm rather than the exception, so we soon got used to it, the price you pay for being close to local people we decided. Not sure we’d immediately pick to stay in the Old Town again because of this, but if we do, we’d certainly come back to this apartment.

More uniquely, the well thought out double glazing that pushes out inside the walls means the terrace can be open plan too! So with a two seater sofa inside, two wicker lounge sofas outside, sun loungers and then the more formal dining area with antique table.
