Overview

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!

About Iain Vellacott

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.

Iain Vellacott purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Iain Vellacott chose Nice Old Town (Vieux Nice)

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 tram and bus network and just round the corner from Place Garibaldi with its restaurants, bars and supermarket - yet quiet (important to me as I am a light sleeper!)

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your apartment was fantastic and really was like being home from home. We have said we want to return to Nice in a couple of years or so and I hope

you will still be letting your apartment out by then as we would definitely return to your apartment.

Many thanks. You've made good job of doing up the apartment - we found it very comfortable and had a great time there - a very good location. MC

My family and I had a most enjoyable stay at your apartment. I would not hesitate to rent your apartment again when we next visit Nice. DG

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Nice and the accommodation played a huge part. We will recommend 4 rue Francois Zanin without hesitation. MO'S We had a lovely time, the apartment was perfect! TO'D

Fond Memories

  • 5 of 5

This ultra clean spacious and airy apartment was so conveniently situated in the Old Town, within 2-3 minutes walk of buses and tram. Everything needed for a comfortable relaxing stay was to be found in the property, with 3 supermarket/convenience stores 2-5 minutes walk away. Eating out was made difficult only by the incredible choice of restaurants offering good food at reasonable prices; one of our favourites was La Table Alziari, immediately beneath the apartment itself. It was only a leisurely 10 minute stroll from the promenade.

We are looking forward to going back to this apartment next year.

Acogedor apartamento en el casco antiguo de Niza

  • 5 of 5

Un apartamento acogedor y muy confortable en el corazon de Niza. En pleno casco antiguo ya un paso de todo.

No es necesario cochem hay de todo en la zona y ademas esta a un paso del Tranvía.

Andando se llega al puerto en pocos minutos, a la Plaza Massena a la zona mas comercial de Niza, y por supuesto su precioso casco antiguo. Los restaurantes comercios y supermercados estan a escasos metros.

Los dueños son super amables y en nuestro caso tuvieron todo organizado a pesar de contactar con ellos menos de 24 horas antes de nuestra llegada. Aunque son Ingleses y habln preferentemente ingles, lo cual ya es una ventaja para quienes dominamos poco el Francés, la mujer habla bastante bien español, con lo cual es muy fácil comunicarse con ellos.

Absolutamente recomendable.

Perfect location for a "getaway"!

  • 5 of 5

We (grandparents, mum, dad and 11 year old son) spent a week in Iain's brilliant apartment in Nice old town. It is superbly situated in the historic streets and you have bakery, restaurants, buses, trams.. everything right on your doorstep. There is everything you need including parasol and mats for the beach. As someone mentioned travel is super cheap and you can buy a "muti" ticket for the buses so a journey costs 1€!! There is loads to experience in Nice and along the coast...we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend the apartment. Iain was very friendly and professional in helping us to organise things. Thanks for a super week!

Would recommend for: Tourists without a car, sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children and romantic getaway.

Ideally placed property

  • 5 of 5

Central location for our needs, a family apartment. We were able to travel on the trains, trams and buses without concern. We were lucky that the Grand Prix was on during our stay and we managed to get to Monaco the atmosphere was brilliant, the bus was 1.50 each way number 100from behind the monoprix. Also went to marineland didn't know who enjoyed it most me or my 5 year old catch the 200 bus 1 euro each way catch it by hotel meridian caught the train back. Food we ate in a few times however there was a plethora of restaurants within close proximity to the apartment.
