About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 80sqm, sleeps 6-8

Stunning, bright, spacious and fully equipped holiday apartment in the centre of the old town of Nice, 50m from the world famous “Promenade des Anglais” and Cours Saleya. Completely renovated in 2005, it still retains the character of its original XVIIIth century builders. 50 meters from the sea, newly decorated in a modern contemporary style, the apartment has everything for the perfect family holiday. You will have every home comfort at your disposal, with independent air conditioning in all bedrooms + the lounge . If you travel with children we will do our best to make their stay comfortable and easy. You will be just 50 meters from the most beautiful beach in Nice, in the heart of the very picturesque old town in Nice (listed and protected area), 5 minutes to the central bus station and central shopping zone, 15 minutes to the central railway station, 10 minutes from Nice international airport by bus. This is the ideal location for people who want to get about without a car.

More about the apartment: Very sunny, the apartment is full of charm with parquet floors, high ceilings, cornice, beautiful original wooden doors. Thick walls, independent air conditioning/heating system in all bedrooms & the lounge, and windows with louvre shutters keep it cool in summer, warm in the winter. A polished wood parquet floor can be found in the lounge, while the bedrooms are tiled with “tomettes” from the XVIII (typical tiles hand-made in Salernes, Provence). All the furnishings in the apartment are brand new.

TV set to watch video tapes and DVD. High speed internet connection.

The apartment is on the second floor above street level (semi-private entrance door). Its very secure. Stairs are easy to walk up.

More about Nice: Whether you are a family with children wishing to enjoy relaxing vacations, or a group of night clubbers eager to have fun and entertainment, you will have a chance to enjoy the widest range of holiday options. We offer a fantastic location: The beach is just down the street and you will be able to go for a swim several times a day (sunbathing, swimming, sailing, etc are possible up to October) – There are no night clubs in the street (first ones, 200 m away).

You will be just in the heart of the lively Old Town packed with museums, galleries, restaurants in all price ranges, pubs, shops (from top-name to artisan shops). 1 minute from the best discothèques in town, and 1 minute from the Opera. 5 minutes to Nice centre for world class shopping at the heart of the Riviera. You will feel like in a village, in the heart of the preserved beautiful old Town, with all the comfort and security a modern city can offer (Nice is Frances fifth largest city).

Practice your 'niçois': In case you do not fluently speak “niçois” (the local dialect) do not worry, as most people speak a little English, especially in the old town. To travel around, Nice is an ideal base from which to explore the Cote d'Azur: you can take a boat trip from Nice port to the Lerins islands, St. Tropez, la Corniche d'Or and Monaco. Monaco is 15 mins by train and Cannes is about 40 mins. As we know this area and the surroundings quite well, having lived in Nice for 15 years, we will be happy to help you to discover the area and share our best addresses with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We had a wonderful vacation in Nice, the apartment is centrally located to all the sites in Vieux Nice. The best part of the apartment were our hosts, Emmanuelle and Christophe, who made my whole Family feel welcome from the moment we arrived. When our 3yr old son's luggage was delayed Emmanuel and Christophe brought over some of their own children's clothing for our son to wear until his luggage arrived. Christophe went above and beyond to make our family feel welcome and safe, and we would recommend their hospitality to anyone visiting Nice.' Jim M Nov 06

L'appartement est superbe, magnifiquement rénové avec tout le confort moderne mais le charme et la chaleur de l'ancien, situé avec bonheur pour ceux qui aiment sortir le soir au rythme de l'ambiance méditerranéenne. Le matin, quel plaisir de trouver sur le marché tous les parfums de la provence réunis en un même lieu... Bref, un endroit de rêve, et avec des proprios très sympas, ce qui ne gâte rien ! Un coup de coeur! Chantal A

Lovely stay at Nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the apartment in central Nice. The booking was handled professionally by Emma who kindly co-ordinated all the paperwork and details for our stay and all information provided was extremely helpful. On arrival we were greeted with lovely fresh flowers and a bottle of wine and a helpful explanation of all the amenities. Location wise the apartment was ideal for us, very close to the beach, great restaurants, bars and excellent local transport connections. The local shop opposite was also very handy. The apartment was very clean, nicely decorated and retained a lot of the charm of a traditional french apartment. The WiFi connection, local travel books and maps inside the apartment were really useful and helped us plan days out. We had a great time and would love to go back to Nice and would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants a central place to place to explore Nice and the surrounding cities from. Thanks for a lovely stay. Alison & Lak

Wonderfull stay in a beautiful family apartment

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults, 2 little children) had a very nice stay in this spacious apartment. Although situated on one of the most bussy marketplaces, once windows closed, it becomes quiet. With his two bathrooms you never have a row of moaning people waiting for their turn. The children had enough space to play and where excited about the toys they found in one of the throws. Concerning our arriving; it was as if we came here already for many years. They were very kind and gave us a lot of information, both about the apartment and their rules as well as what we could visit with little children. Everything we asked was answered with a smile. The owner herself invited us one day for a coffee but because of a problem on our side we couldn’t meet her (which was very sorry). If we go back to Nice next year, it will certainly be again in this beautiful apartment.

Wij (4 volwassenen, 2 kleine kinderen) hadden een fantastisch verblijf in dit ruim appartement. Alhoewel gelegen aan één van de drukste marktplaatsen, eens de vensters dicht werd het binnen heel rustig. Door de aanwezigheid van 2 badkamers was er nooit een wachtende rij van ongeduldige mensen. De kinderen hadden genoeg speelruimte en waren heel blij met het aanwezige speelgoed (geschikt tot een leeftijd van 5 jaar alhoewel duploblokken door bijna elk kind gewaardeerd worden). Wat betreft onze aankomst; het was net alsof wij hier al jaren kwamen. De eigenaar was heel vriendelijk en gaf ons alle mogelijke informatie. Wat we ook vroegen, alles werd met een glimlach beantwoord. De eigenaar nodigde ons uit voor een koffietje, maar door een probleem van onze kant kon dit spijtig genoeg niet doorgaan. Indien we besluiten volgend jaar terug naar Nice te gaan zal het zeker weer dit appartement worden.

Fabulous location and big apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four aged 20-80 years and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It is right in old Nice and only 5 minutes walk to beach. The daily market is around the corner ( 2 min walk) and there is a small supermarket across the road and a hardware store around the corner. Everything was so handy. The tram was two minutes walk away to get to train station. The vibe of old Nice is fantastic and this location is perfect. The apartment was clean, fresh, well maintained, roomy with everything we needed. Emma was very quick to reply to any questions leading up to our arrival and gave us lots of info and tips when we arrived for our stay making our week even easier. There are stairs to get up to the apartment but that is the reality in most of the places we stayed in France and kept us fit.Thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this very well situated flat. Indeed, it is located in the best area to visit and enjoy Nice (50m from the sea, very nice restaurants). We enjoyed to be in a quiet building. The flat is very well furnished (a lot of dishes and home appliances). We will come back for sure ! Claire

Excellent Apartment for Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is centrally located in the heart of Old Nice, a short stroll to markets, bakery, shops and beach. The property is very clean and well maintained with adequate kitchen utensils and comfortable beds - ideal for a family holiday. We were a family group of 6 (4 of whom were young adults) and this apartment was perfect for our stay of 2 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period. The owner provided excellent customer service from our initial enquiry about the apartment until we left. Her manager was also extremely helpful at all times. During our stay we lived like locals, visiting the local markets daily. We travelled on short excursions to many of the surrounding cities and villages. We did not have or need a car as public transport in Nice is very cheap (1.50 Euro per trip), regular and reliable. Proximity to the beach for regular walks was a bonus. We would definitely recommend this apartment and look forward to returning.
