Why Cecile & Monique chose Old Town

This property sits in a quiet street just behind the Palais de Justice, literally one minute walk from all the restaurants and the beach. The position is just unbeatable, not just in Nice, but in the world! You won't find many holiday places where you don't need any commuting...except resorts. Infact thanks to the location of this flat you will feel like in an unique historical resort with incredible views, amazing shopping, endless choice of restaurants and activities all at your doorsteps.

What makes this apartment unique

You won't find properties of this size in the Old Town (120mq) and having 3 separate bathrooms is extremely rare.

The flat also features double glazing windows for extra comfort.

Location , Location

  • 5 of 5

We are a mature couple from Melbourne Australia who for the past 7 years have spent 4 weeks per year touring Europe. On this occasion we took my son, wife and 3 young children on their first trip outside Australia

The location and the security of this apartment was perfect - it is located in the middle of the old town so everything is just a few minutes walk - we felt very safe!

The apartment was large, high ceilings, well maintained

and ideal for 2 families who need their own space. The greeter was most helpful and patient since we were delayed in traffic and late in arrival. Parking was a bit of a problem but we found suitable car parking 10 minutes away. Would definately recommend to a friend or relative Tony

The location could not be better

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely appointed flat. It has a huge living room with high ceilings and three bedrooms, each with full bathroom facilities and luxury finishings. The location could not be better as the flat is in very close to all shops and restaurant and 2mins walk to the beach. We loved sitting out in a cafe for our morning croissant, heading straight to the beach for a refreshing swim; then enjoying the green expanse of the culee verte (a nearby newly created park feauturing landscaped fountains) and walking down to the station for a short trip to Monaco or Cannes, grabbing food on the numerous bistros along the way.

The host was very nice, we asked for extra beach towels and our request was promptly satisfied.

Wonderful flat

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 3 couples and we were looking for a flat which could offer us 3 things: location, location, location. This requirement could not have been fulfilled any better!

Normally we don't like commuting while we are on holiday, for instance to do basic stuff like going out for dinner and I can say that this flat avoids the issue outright.

The flat is in a quiet little street just literally 2 mins walk from the beach and 1 mins from a very beautiful square featuring something like 30 restaurants! Just behind the apartments lies the new green espanse of the coulee vert...amazing!

Inside I must say everything was spotless: first of all each room had its private bathroom - our was featuring a huge corner bathtub...I wish I had that at home...

The living room is just amazing...it is huge! It features a kitchen bar, plenty of sofa space and a large table...the perfect place for relaxing and sip a drink after a day walking around in the sun!

The building is an historical building from 1740s if I remember well and we've been told it was hosting some government functions at the time...you can see it also from the very high ceilings! I wish modern flats had those!!

Apart of offering everything, including nightlife at your doorstep, it took us less than 20 minutes to go to the main train station to catch the train to Monaco, very convenient I must say. Not to speak of the airport, which is only 15 mins away by taxi (this is a big plus Nice has compared to many other holiday destination).

I would not recommend the flat only to those looking for a countryside experience.

W Nice! W la France!

The flat is situated in the center of the old part f town. Positiv: Everything in reach by foot (market, beaches, bars, port). But: Adress is a narrow filthy street, bars in neighbourhood cause noise in the night.

Flat itself is in a very old house. The entry is completely ran down.

Two bedrooms (spacious enough to feel well) each with showercorner/toilette. One bedroom (this one is not nice, window only to small backyard) with extra bath. The livingroom is really spacious and airy. The kitchencorner in there is ran down and partly filthy. The dishwasher worked at least. The vacuum cleaner did not. In general the flat looks like if it was planned nice and generously (wooden floor is really nice, shower and sinks in the bathrooms are ok), but it would need much more care by the owners to fulfill the expectations of a luxury app. Drawers fell off the moment we tried to open them. Cupboards, chairs, desks are all quite ran down.

No views as the flat looks out to the narrow road.

The service by the owner was neither very proffessional nor really friendly.

We would not recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Dear customer, I am sorry to hear you haven't enjoyed your stay in the Old Town although you were very happy when you left the property, especially because we have allowed for you to do a late check out at 8pm instead of the 11am initially agreed. You mentioned several times you were very happy. If you had explained you didn't like narrow streets and loud music, we wouldn't have recommended the Old Nice to you. This is the definition of an Old Town and we would not be able to change anything of it. It would not even be allowed the change it as it is a conservation area. The building were you stayed was built in the 18th century and everything is original and must be kept the way it looks. These features are considered very charming and beautiful not only by me, but also by all the people who love the Old Town. You are right in the Center of the Old Town, and the streets in the Old Town are all narrow as at the time it was built people didn't have cars. I would like to add that the appartment is brand new and was refurbished to very high standards, wooden floors, true marble in the 3 bathrooms. We would have liked you to signal anything damaged when you left the appartment. The views are over a street of the Old Town, which does not mean it does not have a view. Again I am sorry you were not informed properly about the Old Nice before you arrived as you should have probably stayed in a brand new building outside of town which better suits you.

Relaxing and beautiful holidays

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for Easter and it was the greatest holidays we had in years.

We normally go in 4/5 star hotel so are used to good standards but we have 2 young kids and feel that rentals are better for us now.

The owner included cot beds for free and our babies slept like at home. Having 3 bedrooms, we could have them sleeping in separate rooms so they would not wake up each other.

The flat is very spacious, each room has its own bathroom, everything was very clean and comfortable.

What i would like to highlight is also the fantastic location, you are right in the middle of the old Town, walking distance from hundreds of restaurants and shops. We had a week of sun and it was very warm, because of the low season also few people swimming and beach was not crowed. The water was warm, it felt like a the carabeans closer to home and with no jet lag!

If you want to spend time in a spacious apartment, where you can cook While your kids play in the very big living room and then go for endless walk in the old Town and by the promenade des anglais or coulée verte (beautiful new fountains a few minutes walk from the property, walking to eat in a différent place every night this is for you.

We are from 'London and do not like driving while we are on holidays, this was perfect for us!

The flat is situated in the old town in a very traditional building. It's very close to the sea, few meters only!! The area is very vibrant, markets, restaurants, bar and cafe... it's perfect!

The flat is lovely, very spacious, nice kitchen and impressive bathroom. I definitely recommend this flat for stay in Nice.
