About Thady Nolan

Born in Ireland some generations ago, I moved to Nice as a computer engineer in April, 2002. Being a convivial barfly by night, I observed the Nice night life and quickly realised that something was lacking: A fully fledged Irish bar, without the clichés, but with wide screens for all sports fanatics, live music and a real Sunday roast on the menu. A good catholic boy, I decided to call the bar after my 'Ma' back home and the first Ma Nolan's opened in Vieux Nice in mid 2005.

Thady Nolan purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Thady Nolan chose Nice

I looked for an apartment to buy for a long time before finding this one. I fell in love with it straight away. It has some really beautiful features, being renovated and restored lovingly by two interior designers. The wooden floors, soft paint colours on the walls, master bedroom leading through to a quirky en suite with stand alone cast iron bath, imposing living/ dining space with high ceilings complete with contemporary girders and a full range oven. It was the place for me. My future wife and I moved in and spent a wonderfully happy year there before she fell pregnant and demanded we move to a property without stairs! It still hurts... I'd planned to live there for a lot longer than I did, but 3 kids later I think we did the right thing to look for somewhere with more bedrooms!

What makes this apartment unique

Practicalities - we have both air conditioning and double glazed windows (unheard of in a lot of old town properties) but a necessity as the apartment is always quiet and cool even though the city buzzes till dawn in the summer months. We are in the middle of everything the city has to offer and a short walk to the train station for access to neighbouring sights. Because this apartment was our home, it is comfortable as well as practical and you can settle into it as much as you would like to when away from home. Take a bath, put your feet up, stay in contact with your friends, we have wifi, or chill in front of our sky tv channels between day trips and evening meals.

Excellent, spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month in Thady's apartment, with a selection of close family members ranging from 24-68 years old over the four weeks.

This was our fifth visit to Nice and this spacious and well-equipped apartment was by far the best we have ever stayed in. There are four flights of stairs to negotiate but that did not spoil our enjoyment, if anything I needed the exercise - and the higher up you are, the quieter the atmosphere indoors. The Old Town is a bustling place and can be noisy at night but this is far less apparent on the fourth floor.

All the rooms are as light and airy as the pictures suggest, the air conditioning is a godsend and I really appreciated small things such as well-stocked essentials such as loo roll, condiments, washing powder and washing up liquid. The best way to describe it is incredibly tranquil once the windows are closed and very comfortable for four. Barry looked after all our needs splendidly and we enjoyed our visits to Ma Nolan's, Thady's pub.

Mela has written an excellent guide to the apartment and all the different experiences you can have in Nice and the surrounding areas, which we put to good use. In short, I would thoroughly recommend a stay here not least because the location is near to the beach but also to the tram and buses, which is a real plus. We loved Bar des Oiseaux (just opposite) and Les Deux Canailles restaurants. Les Garcons was quirky, fun and affordable with an interesting menu. I would also recommend a day trip to Antibes to the Picasso and a bus trip to Eze - breathtaking views from the exotic gardens.

Next time we return to Nice, my personal favourite city by the sea, a stay in Thady's apartment will be a must.

Great location in Old Nice

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment. We are a family of four with two kids under 4. It worked extremely well. Even with the four flights of stairs. It kept us fit so we could eat all the good restaurants steps away from the flat.

Apartment was very clean and had all the amenities we would need on vacation. The washing machine is really efficient and allowed us to pack light!

Beautiful Apartment in Heart of NIce Vieux

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful, as the photos show. It is well equipped and in a fantastic location. Everything you need is in the apartment from tv, dvd player, wifi, dishwasher, washing machine to cooking spices and dishwasher tabs. Immediately outside the apartment and beyond are lots and lots of fabulous restaurants; french, italian, indian, thai etc and many well stocked boulangeries. We had warm croissants and baguette for breakfast every morning (well when in France!). Barry who met us on arrival and departure couldn't have been more helpful; arranging transfers, carrying suitcases and recommending restaurants and places to visit. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Nice.

Great location - in the heart of it all.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic meet and greet service! Clean comfy beds, linen and towels. Lots of hot water. Very spacious.

Do buy a weekly travel pass at 15 euros and go all over Nice. Wifi was good.

We would recommend this apartment and would return again.

The communication was very easy. There are lots of restaurants on the doorstep and a good supermarket 10 minutes away.

Took train to Monaco - lovely journey along the coast.

Nice is nice!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this apartment in Old Town Nice. This was our second trip to Nice and we loved every minute. The apartment looks exactly as pictured and you couldn't ask for a better location to call home during your stay. Restaurants, bars, beaches, parks ... all at your fingertips. The manager Barry was available to help with anything we needed. He booked our transfers and even carried our luggage up the stairs. We couldn't have been happier with our stay in Nice. We would certainly stay again. Great experience. Even worth the stairs. Highly recommend.

A Wonderful Experience

  • 4 of 5

My sister and partner came all the way from Australia to experience the lovely ambiance of Nice. I had been to Nice many times so knew that our apartment was situated in a convenient location to the old town. Both of us had bad knees but it was worth the walk upto the 4th floor and we managed it 4 or more times a day at least. The apartment is spacious and beautifully furnished. In fact we hardly went out to dinner and stayed in and cooked on the lovely stove.

Barry met us and not only helped to carry our suitcases but was there when we needed anything. Thady was very helpful and we corresponded on many occasions. I certainly recommend this apartment. Have a wonderful holiday.
