About Nic Beeby

I am English and have connections with Tuscany in Italy. I wanted to have an apartment by the sea where I could go around the coast to Italy or indeed the other way as far as Spain. It is also great to travel up into the mountains behind Nice. I wanted to be able to walk everywhere with all the conveniences of the old town at my fingertips. 100 years ago the high season was in January and February because the climate and the light was so wonderful. I love to be in Nice as I feel rejuvenated!

Nic Beeby purchased this apartment in 2000

Wonderful apartment in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is absolutely fanatastic! Plenty of room with excellent facilities, we were able to cook every night comfortably and eat in the open plan dining space. The bed is super comfy and the shower is great. You get a great view from the bedroom window and can also see the sea from the living area! Location couldn't be better - the sea is minutes away and restaurants and bars are just close by. For being so central it's surprisingly quiet which allows a undistributed nights sleep. Nic provides lots of recommendations on where to go and eat, as well as some local info which was invaluable - thank you! Would go back in a heartbeat!

Perfect Location and Stunning Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The description for this apartment could not be more on point. The location is absolutely perfectly situated between the old and new town. Very easy to get to and from the airport. The apartment was spotless and very well equipped so very handy for cooking in most nights. Make sure you enjoy the morning market for all the fresh produce. I hope to be back very soon!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second visit to this comfortable, ideally located appartment, and enjoyed our stay every bit as much as the first time. It is exactly as described by the owner, and is well equipped and maintained. There is lots of helpful information on where to go and what to do.

It is in an ideal location close to the promenade and to the market and old town. The Place Masena is excellent for people watching and there is a great view from the second bedroom window.

We used public transport which is inexpensive and easy to manage to visit Antibes and Vence. There is plenty of choice of where to eat with so many restaurants close by.

We would definitely recommend it to friends and hope to return again ourselves.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

This was our second 10 night stay in Nice and my husband and I enjoyed it every bit as much as our first holiday there. There is just so much to do and see that you are never bored. The wonderful coastal scenery can be accessed by bus for 1 Euro. We went to Villefranche and the Rothschilde's villas and gardens by public transport and can really recommend them. Prior to travelling to Nice we had organized a tour of Cannes/Antibes/Cap Ferrat and St Paul De Vence - all places we had not seen on our first holiday. The apartment's outstanding location allows you to enjoy the sea as well as many restaurants/bars/etc. Place Messina is an excellent spot for people watching and we were able to soak up the atmosphere of Euro 2016 and view the excitement of the fans from our window. Nic replies promptly to any queries you may have and Madame Horel is very helpful (she even lent us a really large umbrella on the one evening it rained during our stay). We still feel that we have only scratched the surface of Nice as a city and have no hesitation in saying that we will be back.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Ann, I am so glad you both enjoyed your return visit to Nice! You are so right - there are many wonderful places to visit and even I, who have owned this apartment for sixteen years, have still not got to see everything! Many more years of exploring! Come back soon. Nic

Perfect location, lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

A perfect apartment for two independent travellers, with two good-sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Great location in the old town and close to transport. A well set-up kitchen (with basics available) although we didn't use it apart from breakfast as there are so many good restaurants and cafes close by. We particularly enjoyed the pizzeria opposite and La Merenda just half a block away. Madame Horel was a great host with plenty of good information, and lots of great information from Nic in the apartment.

Nice, the Queen of the French Riviera, is at the very heart of life on the spectacular Côte d'Azur.

Founded by the Greeks and colonized by the Romans, Nice's temperate winter climate and verdant subtropical vegetation have been attracting visitors for centuries.

It has a lovely warm and sunny climate, good beaches, interesting museums and galleries as well as an atmospheric street life. The 12 day Carnival in February is an explosion of celebrations culminating in a spectacular firework display.

Nice was Italian until 1861, and the pastel façades and balconies of the Old Town have a distinct Italianate feel. It lies at the eastern end of the Bay des Anges, at the foot of the hill still known as the Chateau for the castle that once stood here.

The Old Town is the most vibrant part of Nice, with its narrow streets, which are packed with boutiques, galleries, artists' studios. Nice's beautiful Opera House is situated here with a varied menu of Opera, Ballet and Classical Concerts.

At the centre of the Old Town is the Cours Salaya, the daily morning market bustling with flowers, fruit and vegetable stalls which make way in the rest of the day to cafés, bars and restaurants.
