Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Nice Old Town (Vieux Nice)
2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, apartment sleeps 4-5, floor area approx 63m2
Wonderful light and airy 2 bedroom apartment in the Old Town (Vieux Nice).
Our apartment is on the 2nd floor of a typical Nicois building in Rue Francois Zanin, a quiet but wide pedestrian street just round the corner (literally!) from the Old Town’s fabulous markets, shops, bars and restaurants and less than 10 minutes walk from both the beach and the port. It is also only a couple of minutes walk from bus and tram stops on Nice’s excellent public transport system which provides excellent services to the airport (20 minutes) and the many attractions in Nice and the wider area.
The apartment comprises a large (5m x 4m) double-window sitting room with dining area, a modern American-style kitchen, 2 bedrooms (one with a double bed and a walk-in wardrobe, the other with two single beds) and a modern WC/shower room.
The Old Town of Nice is one of Euope's 'jewels' - the historic buildings and pedestrianised streets are filled with the atmosphere of the local markets, restaurants and street cafes which you can enjoy or wander through, by day or night, relaxed and secure. Don't get put off by the city's reputation as a playground for the rich - the close proximity of the beach and the bus and trams stops (providing services not just to local attractions but also to Monaco, Cannes, etc) and the myriad of very reasonably priced restaurants and cafes means that you can have just as much fun on a tight budget!

In 2005 my wife and I decided to move our family from Oxfordshire to South West France where I now work as an artist (www.inoils.com) as well as returning to the UK to continue my professional consultancy practice.
We bought this apartment because of its wonderful location at the top of the Old Town - less than 10 minutes stroll through the pedestrianised streets to the front, only a couple of minutes from stops on Nice's excellent public transport and yet quiet (important to me as I am a light sleeper!)
Our fundamental objective has always been that people should have a great holiday so we did up the apartment and maintain it (with the help of our excellent local agent) in the way that we would want to find an apartment ourselves.
