About the property

Updated Apt, secure bldg, 1 Bdrm + futon, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4), UNBEATABLE VIEW!

Read our Reviews!! We have hundreds of happy guests! We use this flat 2-3 times per year - so it's clean, well-appointed, comfortable and ready for you! The view is TO DIE FOR! Welcome!

Seriously, one thing I enjoy most, is hearing that others are enjoying themselves in this lovely apartment we are blessed to have. We so love sharing our second homes with you (and thanks for helping us to afford them!) Our way of thanks is making sure you get a fair price, for a clean, well-furnished and perfectly located spot. Enjoy! Bon Voyage!

Check out the view! We are so happy to welcome you to our second home in Nice France. We love it here and would love to keep it occupied and enjoyed as much as possible. That is why our rates are low and our caretaker is happy - we keep her busy! We take our responsibility to provide you exactly the apartment you see on these pages very seriously. Just click "email owner" for more information and information on booking.

We love the South of France. We come here 3-4 times per year but when we are not here - why not use as it YOUR very own second home. We take great pride in offering a very clean, well appointed and inviting apartment right on Promenade des Anglais. You can't get this view anywhere else in the world! You can bet the photos are current and the bed comfortable.

Enjoy your morning cup of coffee on the balcony of this Nice Vacation Rental overlooking the Mediterranean Sea watching the sunrise. All of our guests tell us the view takes their breath away every time they see it. In the morning enjoy your coffee and in the evening enjoy your glass of wine.

This 1 bedroom Nice Vacation Rental Apartment is air conditioned, in a secure building with an elevator, is totally remodeled and is very clean and inviting. Just 10 minutes from the airport and you're there! We are on the 6th floor.

We offer Wifi, TV and telephone (free calls to North America and most of Western Europe.) The WIFI is optional and costs E10/night. But the best view is still on the balcony - not looking at the television : )

Renting a furnished apartment in Nice France is definitely the way to travel! A full kitchen allows you to breakfast on the balcony, have wine and cheese in the afternoon and even make a full dinner in the evening if you choose! Save $$ for a fancy dinner one night or more tours than usual.

Museums - too many to count. Amazing day trips - how about Eze, Menton, Monaco, Cannes, St. Tropez, Grasse (home of perfume!) and even Italy are just a quick car, bus or train ride away. Be back in time for dinner. (Read the guest comments for a myriad of tour ideas and suggestions from guests who have actually stayed in this apartment).

Winter? Skiing at Isola 2000 is just a couple of hours by car (or there is a bus as well) and the skiing is very good. Leave Sunny Nice and suddenly you are on a ski lift.

You will find everything you need here and will be greeted upon your arrival by our friendly caretaker (Luzminda) who will give you the keys and show you the apartment. You will find lots of tour books and brochures in the apartment to get started planning. But the most valuable resource is our guest book. Read comments from past guests over the last 11 years and please leave a comment on your own. What tour did you love? What buses did you use? What village is a must? Did you find great wine tasting nearby? A wealth of information awaits you.

You will find the kitchen to be very updated, clean and well equipped. There is even a washer for your clothes and an ironing board/iron. (Sorry no clothes dryer). A blow dryer in the bath means you don't have to pack yours. We even have soap, shampoo and an extra toothbrush if you forgot yours.

In the master you will find a queen bed and in the main room there is a very comfortable futon that folds into a double bed. (It really is comfortable - honest!)

Check out our availability calendar prior to emailing as it is updated frequently. (We have many returning each year to our apartment).

Those who have enjoyed the apartment most seem to be couples (both young and older), families with one to two young children and singles who need a time out to relax. This is not a party location for young renters. This apartment is used often by the owners who live in California and they are very particular about keeping it neat, clean and well furnished.

We recommend you forego a rental car and take advantage of the amazing public transport.

Read all of this? Just say "I read it" in your email and get a 10% discount on rental fee for bookings over 3 nights. Cheers to those of us who read it all!!

NOTE: If you have time we do offer the opportunity to split your stay between Nice and Cannes. The only extra cost is you pay both caretakers (E90 in Nice and E120 in Cannes). Check out VRBO 112845.

About Elin Hervall

We are a family of four living in the San Francisco bay area and we LOVE the South of France. We own an apartment in Nice (112843) and Cannes (112845) and visit frequently. We also have an apartment in Rancho Mirage (Palm Springs), California. Photos are current and comments are unedited. Our goal is to realistically describe the apartment and hope you say 'it's even better than I expected' when you get there!

Hakan is originally for Sweden and loves skiing. Judy is from West Virginia and enjoys golf. We both enjoy traveling and have been to over 120 countries. We enjoy wine and have a small vineyard in our backyard.

Seriously, one thing I enjoy most, is hearing that others are enjoying themselves in these lovely places we are blessed to have. We so love sharing our second home with you (and thanks for helping us to afford them!) Our way of thanks is making sure you get a fair price, for a clean, well-furnished and perfectly located spot. Enjoy! Bon Voyage!

Why Elin Hervall chose Fabron

The view and the weather!

What makes this apartment unique

The view and the beach is SOOOO close. I love watching the swimmers early in the morning 12 months out of the year!

It's fun to see incoming planes (no you don't hear them) while sitting on the balcony.

People watching is fun as folks are always walking, bicyclying, skating, jogging and dancing down Promenade des Anglais.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had a wonderful week here in Nice especially as the weather has been fantastic. The apartment is lovely and the view spectacular. At first we were concerned about the noise from the road but in reality it has not bothered us at all. Taking the train to Monaco was very easy adn as with the busesbe aware that it is likely that you will have to standas they are often full. A walk along the Promenade to Nice town is lovely but avoid walking back in the heat of the sun! We would certainly recommend the apartment andhope to return to Nice sometime in the future.

Delightful Nice flat....

  • 5 of 5

This Nice flat was just wonderful: the beautiful Mediterranean view, the Promenade and beach below. The owner was super to work with and provided so much information to make our stay just perfect. The apartment was very clean and so well stocked--can't think of anything we could have wanted. We appreciated all the converters! This is a perfect location in Nice and the bus is so convenient....and it's also an easy walk to the center of Nice. Elevator was a bonus....as well as the lovely caretaker. Thoroughly enjoyed this place!

5 Star View and Comfortable Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in this beautiful apartment for 5 days in February of 2018. Naturally, the selling point for this apartment is its view of the Promenade from the sixth story and the attractive terrace overlooking Nice. You will not be disappointed. The apartment is not far from the airport and as the owners advise you, do not take a cab from the Airport or it will be a minimum 25 Euro--the bus is the way to go. In fact, the bus stop is right in front of the apartment and it did not take us long to learn the right routes. We used the apartment as a hub for easy day trips by train from Gare Nice d'Ville which is an easy (15-20 minutes) bus ride (route 12) to the station. From the Nice train station, for less than 6 Euro a piece we were able to travel to Antibes, Cannes, Eze (medieval village not to be missed), Monaco, and Merton--hitting at least two stops a day depending on your pace. The master bedroom can comfortably sleep two and my daughter slept well on the futon in the living area. The bath is nicely sized and much larger than what you can find in some hotels. A comparable hotel room with a similar view will cost you three times the price a night (at least). Enjoy!

What a lovely place!

We loved waking up to the view of the ocean! Evening cocktail hour on the balcony was to die for! Would highly recommend spending time here with fabulous accommodations and communication by the owner's. You will not be disappointed!

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Woke up every morning and had breakfast (coffee w/croissants and jam) on the balcony, while enjoying the beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea! Public transportation was very easy to figure out and you have bus stops directly in front of the location. Apt has pretty much everything you need, even different types of electrical converters which was nice to have. Very clean and just as shown on the pictures.

All excellent reviews----

  • 5 of 5

It is no wonder that this listing has so many excellent reviews. Everything written is as described: perfect views, perfect location, bus system was easy, (especially with all the information that was prepared in the package). Luzminda was easy to communicate with and waited a very long time for us since our plane was delayed and then, our baggage was also delayed. She was very patient and helped us quickly settle in after a long travel day (which should have been a very short travel day). The bed is comfortable and although the street has traffic and planes are coming and going, sleep comes very easy if you follow the guide/directions. The shutter etc blocks out all the street noise and you would never know you are on a main avenue. We have rented many properties through vrbo and this has been the best one so far. Thank you for giving us a home away from home for our stay in nice.

Great little apartment with awesome views and location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this place with our two children aged 11 and 13. This apartment was clean, well equipped and exactly as described. The view is spectacular and the location is excellent. Right on the Promenade with the beach directly across the road. Airport is close and public transportation was right out front so we did not feel the need to have a car. We found the owner to be very pleasant and prompt in responding. The arrival information she provides after booking is very thorough and extremely helpful, it covers everything you could possibly need to know about the apartment and the surrounding area of Nice. The caretaker Luzminda was very friendly and accommodating. We would definitley recommend this apartment.
