Great location in the heart of the old town. Perfect for exploring Nice and surrounding area

4 of 5
The flat is on the top floor and although a bit of a climb still doable by an unfit over 50s. The living area is open and spacious with well fitted out kitchen lots of light and air from the three large windows. Bedrooms are good size. We did not make use of balcony which is off one of the bedrooms as it is small and overlooked although that adds to the charm of the old town but maybe more for Summer. Your day would start with the church bells and watch out for 12 o clock gun which is not for the faint hearted. If you want to experience the vibe of this wonderful city then this apartment is perfect. Martin and Chloe were excellent hosts very informative and accommodating in terms of a later checkout. Look forward to visiting Nice again as 4 days was not long enough.
