Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Nice Old Town (Vieux Nice) - Rue Martin Seytour

90m2, Furnished With French And Oriental Antiques, In A Fashionable Area Of Nice

Our huge 90m2 apartment in the historic port of Nice is tranquil, stunningly furnished and benefits from both front and rear balconies, allowing you to sit outside and enjoy the fantastic Nice sunshine at most times of the day.

Situated just off Rue Bonapart, a fashionable and trendy area that as yet is undiscovered by most tourists, you'll be able to rub shoulders with the resident Niçois in the nearby restaurants, bars and cafés that are just 60 seconds away. It's just a few minutes away from over 100 restaurants ranging from our local pizzeria to Michelin-starred fare, the port, several beaches, the historic old town, tram, airport bus and train.

The apartment is the perfect combination of modern and traditional elements, offering high ceilings, little decorative touches, air conditioning and a combination of new contemporary, French and Oriental antique furnishing, which it give it a very homely feel. It's very quiet at night and during the day the apartment is filled with sunshine! Guests tell us that our apartment is a great space to live in and is perfectly located for a visit to Nice and the Cote d'Azur.

The apartment dates from 1900, and to the rear overlooks a secret garden that Napoleon used during his time in Nice. The apartment in on the 3rd floor, but as the apartment block is over 100 years-old we don’t have an elevator.

As you enter the apartment you walk into a light and spacious hall and living space. The living room is vast for a Niçois apartment. It’s a great room, which is split into 2 defined areas to maximise the space, 1 providing a sofa and table which is great for reading, the other a much larger space which contains a sofa, a romantic love-chair and armchair. Hidden discreetly within an antique cupboard you’ll also find a large flat screen TV, DVD player, selection of films and a stereo. The room also features a fold-out double bed.

The kitchen and combined dining area are accessed from the hall. The retro Italian designer kitchen is well equipped, and the antique French dining table offers comfortable seating for up to 6 people. The rear balcony is accessed through the kitchen. It’s a quiet, tranquil place that enjoys sunshine throughout the afternoon. Complete with bistro table and chairs set it’s our favourite place to enjoy breakfast or lunch when eating in.

There are two bedrooms. The first is large in size and through double doors provides access to the front balcony, which also contains a couple of chairs so you can sit down, have a drink and watch the world go by outside. It has a new king size bed and mattress, an antique ceiling light and is well furnished with a classic white suite. The second bedroom, whilst smaller is unusual in design and well suited to 2 children or 1 adult. Furnishings comprise a 4ft bed, and some simple storage. We also have a baby travel cot available.

The bathroom and toilet are separate rooms. The bathroom is spacious and comprises a large bath with overhead shower, which is unusual for Nice.

The apartment was freshly renovated in 2011 and completely refurnished.

Why Chris Wood chose Nice Old Town (Vieux Nice)

Nice is a location that me and my family have visited regularly over the last 10 years. After spending so much time here we decided it would be a fantastic place to buy a second family home.

The apartment is well loved and in the perfect location to explore Nice and the surrounding Cote d'Azur. By Niçois standards at 90m2 it offers plenty of space.

What makes this apartment unique

What's totally unique is the peace and quiet at night, very rare in Nice, especially when you consider the apartment is located just off Rue Bonapart, a fashionable and trendy area that as yet is undiscovered by most tourists, where you'll be able to rub shoulders with the resident Niçois in the restaurants, bars and cafés that are just 60 seconds away.

The apartment was freshly renovated and completely refurnished in 2011.

Short get away from Finland

  • 5 out of 5
Our family (4 kids + parents) visited this lovely apartment and lively Nice in August for 5 days. The location of the apartment was praised and after our holiday it is easy to agree on these statements. Whether you go to the beach, restaurants, bakeries or supermarkets, all are very close or within walking distance. Also easy and cheap to visit Monaco, Cannes etc.

Apartment was well equipped and clean and there even were some DVD’s with Finnish subtitles, nice surprise for our kids .

All in all, if we ever travel to Nice again, we’ll definitely try to get this apartment booked!

Wonderful city/beach break

  • 5 out of 5
Lovely apartment in great old town location, easy access to Nice centre/beach front/train station via tram/foot. Square Garibaldi Located 2 minutes away with bus stop to Monaco €1.50 each return (can't get cheaper transport for a day trip). Great bars/restaurants around the corner & fab patisserie for fresh croissants & coffee each morning again 2 minutes from apartment. Can't wait for next trip back.

Wonderful stay in Nice

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and were welcomed and shown to our apartment. It is as described although a little darker in the evenings. All amenities as listed.It was moments from the Bus stop and Place Garibaldi in the old town. Lots of space, in the living area. We traveled with our 3 children under 12 so lots of room.

The shops were 2 minutes walk with lots of patisseries, restaurants and a handy supermarket.
The apartment has everything with air conditioning for the living room and 2 fans. It was very clean and well maintained so we all felt comfortable lounging around.

The only thing lacking was free Wifi - but actually for me that meant more relaxation but for the kids it was a bit frustrating however we had more family time instead of surfing the net. After a couple of day we just got used to it.
The 3 flights was stairs to the apartment were fine for us but not really for someone with arthritis.
The second room was small but perfect for our 12 year old to have a read. It did house a double bed (just!)There were lots of DVDs to chose from if you did not want to bring your own

The port was 3-4 minutes walk and the beach about 10 minutes walk. Buses to Monaco was 5 mins away. No need for a car- we used the tram and train to visit Cannes. The beaches were great.

So a lovely apartment - have already recommended it to a colleague and would happily stay here again. The owner was very helpful.

We had a very nice stay in this cozy apartment in the best location. The port, old town, beaches and farmers market are all within walking distance. Great restaurants and bakeries in the neighborhood. Apartment had a full kitchen which we used daily, as well as air conditioning and tv with DVD player and movies that my family enjoyed each evening. Great stay in nice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Nice, which was made all the better by your beautiful and comfortable apartment. The location is just about perfect; close to the old town and the up and coming port area, but also to the excellent and inexpensive public transport and to supermarkets, restaurants and of course boulangeries. We would definitely recommend a visit.

Fab, long weekend 7 years overdue!

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment could not be more central for everything including bars, restaurants, train route and port. In keeping with the area this apartment is full of character and homely and comfortable if you wanted to stay in for the evening but with so much to see and do why would you??
Would definitely return for seconds - fab!
