Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Nice Old Town (Vieux Nice) - Rue de la Croix
Just 5 mins to the beach, the flower market , shops and Place Massena

The apartment has been tastefully furnished to give it a 'home from home' feel and sleeps 2 people quite comfortably. The apartment benefits from two large double glazed windows which gives alot of natural lighting . One opens onto a small balcony which looks towards the Chapel across the street, the other towards a typical street in Vieux Nice.

The brand new kitchen benefits an electric oven and hob / extractor and all the necessities you might need to make your stay a memorable one. The small round table seats 4 people quite easily enabling you to try out some of the local delacacies.

There is comfortable seating in the lounge area, with the settee and additonal seating to watch a DVD or read, with Internet Access available. The television provides channels such as BBC News, CNN ,Sky News Bloomberg + others which may be in French but a great way to learn the language !

Nice / Vieux Nice area: Nice has attracted many famous people over the years and is full of culture and if art is your 'thing' then why not visit some of the many museums such as the Musee Chagall or Musee Matisse or indeed the Maeght Foundation in nearby St Paul de Vence which holds a mix of modern and contemporary art and contains one of the most important collections in Europe. you can get to St Paul de Vence in about an hour by bus from the main bus station in Nice ( approx 5 mins walk from the apartment). Alternatively, you can visit one of the many churches / Cathedrals in Nice, some dating back to the 17th Century.

Annual Events: Throughout the whole year there is something going on and events NOT to be missed include :

* The Fete du Citron in Menton with fantastic exhibitions and carnivals with floats made out of citrus fruits

* Nice Carnival - 2012 years theme is The King of Sport - FULL of huge floats and a great party atmosphere

* Nice Jazz Festival - held in July and attracts people from all over

* Cannes International Firework Festival - countries compete with a grand spectacular of fireworks to music

NOT to mention of course, the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix and many, many more events !

Provence Cote d'Azur region: If this is your first visit to the Cote D'Azur then you are in for a real treat ! There is so much to do for all members of the family with so many exciting places to see, you will not be disappointed. Nice is fun, cultural, sophisticated and exudes charm with a capital C.

Provence is renowned for its rosé wine and lavender fields and if you want to venture further inland then why not pick up a hire car and head towards the vineyards and sample some of the locally produced goods - a fantastic way to see rural France at its best ! Alternatively, in late July / August why not head towards the lavender fields, they really are a truly magnificent sight to behold with a 'carpet' of lavender everywhere.

During the winter months, then why not spend a day or two at one of the local ski resorts which are within easy distance ( about 1 and a half hours by car) the resorts of Isola 2000 and Auron are very popular and well worth a visit.

We came to live in France some 7 years ago for a change of lifestyle and it has been quite a journey ! The Cote D'Azur is truly a wonderful place to live with most time spent outdoors enjoying the beautiful scenery and surrounding towns , not forgetting of course the amazing weather which we are blessed with here . Originating from Cheshire, we truly appreciate the warmer climate !

Sheena Macdonald purchased this apartment in 2009

We love Nice and in particular the Old Town with its cute little streets, plenty of places to eat, you will not be disappointed - all of which are literally on your doorstep . The buildings are so old, individual and fascinating its a great base from which to enjoy your stay in Nice.

All home comforts are catered for making it a true Home from Home.

Wonderful stay!

  • Review Submitted: 26-Feb-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
Thank you Sheena for the wonderful stay at your apartment! Everything is so clean and the apartment is right in the middle of the old town. We appreciated the welcome pack and all the cleaning products. These little attentions make the difference. Very well located to take the bus to go around for some visits.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments - it was a pleasure to meet you both. We really aim to make your stay as memorable as can be, for all the right reasons of course !

After a long flight it's important that the little extras are there for you - the last thing you feel like doing is going to the shop to buy provisions for that initial sit down

We look at our rental with pride and take great care to hopefully make your holiday one of the best and to remember Nice with many pleasurable experiences such that you will return one day.

Welcome anytime !

Sheena

We have had a wonderful time in Nice along the Cote D'Azur. The apartment is lovely and it was perfect for us - walking distance to the beach, shops , markets and all. Sheena's welcoming of us and all the help through e mail made our arrival great. The wine and the other items were great too ! We will recommend this apartment to others and look forward to a return trip - many thanks !

We have enjoyed our stay enormously. Having stayed in many apartments across Europe, we can honestly say that this is one of the best. Everything you would wish for is here and the location is fantastic - right in the heart of the Old Town, with added local atmosphere makes for a truly authentic experience. Thank you to Sheena for the kindness she has extended to us during our stay , would recommend without hesitation - amazing weather ( unexpectedly good and very welcome )

We have both had a wonderful holiday once again in Nice. This has been our first visit though in an apartment and after our experience this vacation, will do so again. We both echo all the positive comments mentioned previously by other guests. A special thank you to Sheena though who has made out trip very memorable from her first e mail to her to her fond farewell. We also loved the special touches such as the free wi fi and welcome pack.

Close to everything but still felt quiet

Had a lovely stay here in Nice ! Apartment is in excellent location , close to everything but still felt nice & quiet and lovely to come back to after a long day sightseeing. It was great to be met at the bus stop by Gail. Our favourite places to visit were Antibes, Villa Rothschild and Monaco. Loved looking at the luxury yachts ! Many thanks

Second time in Nice for us and the apartment was a great base to explore from. The larder was very thoughtfully stocked with basics which we did not expect , plus a couple of generous extras ! Thank you
