About Jean Jackson

We are a mature couple who searched for the perfect holiday apartment and fell in love with Coco! We live by the sea in England so it was really important for us to have the sea on our doorstep in Nice, the marvellous historic Palais Bellevue sealed the deal!

Jean Jackson purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Jean Jackson chose Old Town

We love Nice and were determined to find a really special apartment. Coco ticked all the boxes - by the sea, unbeatable position, beautiful building, lots of space and very special. We hope you will love it as much as we do.

What makes this apartment unique

The morning sun and the sight if the sea never fails to give us a thrill, and the the trip to the market for fresh produce or just watching the shipping in and out of the Port reminds us what a perfect location this is. . We hope our guests will feel the same by the time they go home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have fallen in love with the place. The apartment was ideal - well kitted out and great views / location. Well looked after by Nina and her crew. We never had a bad meal, and there is so much to see and do. Hope to return soon!

Monaco Grand Prix and the French Riviera . The beautiful Coco Palace & Nice .

  • 5 of 5

Our stay and holiday at the stunning Coco Palace was totally out of this world.

I booked a weeks holiday to Nice for a surprise 50th Birthday for my husband to see the Monaco Grand Prix .

It was very clear from all the wonderful reviews that Coco Palace would be perfect. Booking the apartment was very easy and straightforward and within a couple of hours I had received a response e mail from Jean and Howard Jackson. I e mailed Jean and explained the purpose of our holiday and it being a surprise 50th for my husband to see the GP , from then on Jean provided lots of helpful information via e mail including lots of maps and places of interest and I felt nothing was to much trouble . We arrived in Nice to be collected by taxi from the airport by Clare who is Jeans key holder / management contact . Clare was lovely and very helpful showing us everything we needed to know about in the apartment . As for the apartment and it's location well both were just stunning . The photos on the web site are very accurate but actually being in the apartment gave it a totally other dimension . It was so spacious and spotlessly clean . The entire feel was in keeping with a real Parisian bygone time ...beautiful shutters to the windows and lots of special finishing touches. The apartment has everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable self catering stay. The rooms are all large including the kitchen , bathroom and bedroom. The bathroom has a great power shower and feels airy. The bed is gorgeous and so comfortable which was essential after many days spent walking all day and discovering the Cote D'zur. The view over the beautiful port from the French balcony was priceless and we spent our early mornings and late evenings sat here enjoying watching all the fabulous ships and activities around the port. We were in easy walking distance of the old town which was amazing with lots of restaurants and bars and lovely shops, also the train station was just a 10 minute walk and a very short ride to Monaco, Villa French which were both gorgeous. We took the ferry one morning to St Tropez for the day as the ferry was just outside the apartment this was so easy and well worth the 60€ . Everything about our stay at Coco Palce was faultless and I would absolutely recommend staying here and enjoying Nice and it's beautiful sourounding areas to anyone . We fell in a Love with Nice and with Coco Palace and are planning our return next June .

The best place we have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfect - it is large, beautiful and everything works. We found it to be close to the Old Town and at the same time near to the Port where we found some great restaurants. Sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine was good to relax after a day's sightseeing. We shall be back!

Myself and my partner stayed in Coco for a week in July. It was truly a wonderful place to stay. The location of the apartment is perfect for exploring Nice. You are 5 minutes from the Old Town and the Promenade is literally on your doorstep. Upon arrival we were greeted with a lovely little hamper with some wine, cheese, cracker breads and jam. The information provided by the Jacksons was really helpful and their communication during difficult times in Nice were touching.

We spent a couple of days within Nice exploring. We would highly recommend visiting the ruins and waterfall above the memorial. It is just around the corner from the apartment. It is a bit of a hike up the steps so be prepared! The restaurant La Shounga which is just by the apartment is open late most nights and serves really great cocktails and pizzas. We even got one made and took it back to eat on the balcony.

We would definitely recommend Coco - it has all the little extras you would want from a holiday apartment. The only thing I would say though is that during the really hot periods the apartment does become rather hot. We became accustomed to it after a couple of days but I got prickly heat on the third day and the warmth of the apartment didn't help. This is no reason to not stay here though. We will definitely be back. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi K - Thank you for your review. I'm really glad you enjoyed the location and the extras which I believe are a necessity! You stayed in Nice at the warmest time of the year, which some people love, but I myself find it a little intense . We instslled the ceiling fan to creste a cool breeze and I hope this helped. I hope you do come back - possibly try later on in September or even October when the sea is still warm and the temperature has dropped a little.. Thank you again and best wishes - Jean

lovely apartment, good location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. The location was good and was a 10 minute walk from most things (old town, restaurants, bars etc). The apartment was also a lot bigger than I was expecting and had a great balcony to have breakfast on. It doesn't have air conditioning which actually wasn't that bad because the apartment doesn't get that hot and there is a good fan in the bedroom. The wifi was good, it was clean, host was nice. Also, we took the ferry from Nice Port to St Tropez so the location was awesome for that as it picked up and dropped off right outside the apartment. All around great stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for such a posiruve review - from a charming guest. So glad you enjoyed the apartment particularly the space and the balcony, and the fact it was so close to everything. The ceiling fan in the bedroom is new this year and sounds to be working well. The trip to Sr. Tropez is something we particularly recommend and sounds to have been a highlight of your trip - many thanks for choosing to stay with us, please come again!

Fantastic Apartment! Lovely Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the airport by a very pleasant taxi driver. This was pre arranged for us by Claire , who we were then whisked away to meet at the apartment . She showed us round, helped make sure we had Internet access, answered all our questions then left us in charge of the keys.

The apartment was all we had hoped for & more! It was bright, airy & appeared much more spacious than in the photos. The kitchen was very well equipped & the table by the window gave lovely views of the port as a couple of evening meals were enjoyed just chilling after sightseeing & walking all day. The balcony was an ideal spot for breakfast as the sun shone on it from first thing. With views of the Port, sea, boats & people coming & going it was hard to motivate ourselves to get up & go for the day! The bathroom is very spacious & has an excellent shower where you can enjoy using the lovely gift left by Jean. The bedroom , at the back of the apartment is very quiet & has lots of hanging & storage space. The bed was comfy & we enjoyed a week of very restful nights sleep.

The location is perfect for taking a stroll down & round the Port to admire the lovely Yatchs, fishing boats & Cruise ships. If you enjoy a bit more than a stroll take a walk along the costal path to admire the views across the bay's. While in the other direction you can stroll along the sea wall to the Prommenade & Market area with its many restaurants & bars. There is always something interesting happening there. If you enjoy live music a visit to Shapko is a must - we went there 3 times!

We had decided to have a break from driving & use the public transport ( bus, train & tram) we visited Antibes & took 3 trips to Monaco as we were attending the Historique Grand Prix. We feel the trip is nicer by bus but of course it takes a lot longer. Either way you will find is cheaper than the fares in England. We also enjoyed a tour on the open top Red Bus & as your ticket lasts till 6pm & is hop on & off it is good value & takes you out of the main town area. We also did our return journey to the Airport by bus.

If we ever return to Nice we know where we intend to stay! & are happily recommending it to all our friends & family.

A prompt email on our return from Jean was received to say she had returned our deposit.

Thank you Jean

You can explore the historic Old Town, watch yachts, fishing boats and cruise ships coming and going in the Port of Nice, swim from the beach des Ponchettes, or climb to the top of the Chateau hill for an amazing view of Nice!

Why not hire a blue bike, there’s a stand right outside the front door, and cycle right along the Promenade - the bike path goes all the way to Cagnes sure Mer! There are two diving schools with offices a couple of minutes away, boat trips can be booked in the Port, Segway hire is Rue Halevy, and trips to Cannes and St Tropez can be booked in the Port.

There are buses to Beaulieu, St Jean, and along to Monaco from the Port, All bus and tram travel in and around Nice is 1.50€ per ride, or buy a book of ten from the Ligne d’azur office and they will only cost 1€. We recommend you download the Lignes D'Azur App for the best up to date information, and the TER train app for all local trains.
