Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Nice

Spend stay by the seashore with all benefits of a big city which is alive all year round. There's no bad season in Nice where the weather is mild all year long. The apartment is super central, located in a wealthy building, with a cleared and unobstructed view guaranteed over the Baie des Anges. Sea just below the building, Flowers Market two minutes away, the Old town,

it's restaurants and shops two minutes away too. Everything is very close so you don't need a car to get around. The 2-room apartment, located in 6th and last floor by lift, was completely refurbished with a built-in open plan kitchen. The contemporary bathroom has a walk-in shower. The bed is big (160x200) and fitted with quality bedding (Bultex). Linen and bath towels supplied. No need to get out of bed to catch a glimpse of the sea. Having breakfast on the balcony will be very enjoyable. Air conditioned apartment.

Wonderful memories De merveilleux souvenirs

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better apartment than this one thanks to the amazing sea view, the clean, bright and super-well equipped space, the perfect location and the unbelievably warm and wonderful hosts. Pierre and Mihaela are so caring and generous. They made us feel welcome and toured us on foot around the old town and the Cours Saleya, which is literally just around the corner. Absolutely everything is easily accessible from the apartment. We caught buses and trams just blocks away, and with one euro fares to Monaco and Antibes we saw much of the beautiful coast and its cities. We highly recommend this apartment to everyone. We can't wait to return someday soon!

Unbeatable location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our 9 nights in Pierre's apartment overlooking the bay. Coming from the Arizona desert, having an impeccable water view was fantastic. We could spend hours just watching the water sports happening right outside our balcony. The apartment was set up with everything one could want--the easy-to-use washing machine was my favorite feature. but there was a dishwasher, oven, cooktop, too. The walk-in shower was a big hit, also. The location could not be beat, right there at Old Town. We walked to many sights, but one day took to Hop On Hop Off bus to get a bigger overview of the city. We also took bus 81 to get to Villa Ephrussi on Cap-Ferrat. The villa and gardens were a spectacular sight.

When we booked the apartment a year ago, I had no idea that the Euro 2016 was being played in France. Nice hosted a game right after we arrived and one on the day we were leaving. A mini-fan zone took place daily right below us. I realize that our trip to Nice was impacted by the huge influx of sports fans coming to cheer on their teams, but now we know what all of the fuss is about! If we ever come back to Nice, you can be sure that we will check with Pierre if his apartment is available.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little apartment. The view was spectacular both day and night. From inside the apartment, you feel like you are on a ship!

Pierre was very easy to work with and he arranged a pick up for us at the airport, much less expensive than a taxi. The apartment is exactly as pictured and is immaculate. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is newly remodeled. Though small, it is perfect for a couple or a couple with a young child. Because of the double paned windows, it is very quiet.

The location could not have been better. Cours Saleya is a few minutes walking and you can buy all your ingredients to cook a nice meal while enjoying the view from the apartment. Be sure to pick up a nice bouquet of flowers at the marche aux fleurs to enjoy during your stay; very reasonably priced. The tram to the train station is also just a few minutes walking so you can take train trips around the Riviera. Old town is also very close. Everything worth seeing in Nice is within an easy walk of this apartment.

We could not enjoy the lovely balcony because it was very windy during our stay. However, because of the windy condition, we were able to hear the waves and they lulled us to sleep at night with the slider open.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to others visiting Nice and the Riviera and hope to return again soon.

Thank you, Pierre, for a lovely stay in Nice!

Unforgettable stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in Pierre´s lovely apartment in September 2015. This place exceeded all our expectations and we were absolutely impressed by the location and the view. It is short walking distance to everywhere – beach, market, shops, restaurants, port, public transport. The apartment itself is very well appointed with everything you need. It is very bright, clean and comfortable.

But what we especially loved was the fantastic terrace with amazing sea and promenade view. It was so nice to wake up every morning to the sound of the sea and to see the turquoise water just behind the big windows. We enjoyed every minute on the terrace – all the sunrises and sunsets, breakfasts with delicious croissants and dinners with excellent wines.

Pierre is a wonderful host. He always replied promptly to all our messages and he also arranged Claude to meet us at the airport and bring us to the apartment. The chilled rose wine in the fridge was another nice surprise.

So in summary, it is an excellent place, with incredible owner, which I can highly recommend.

Merci beaucoup Pierre, nous espérons de retourner tôt!

Cordialement, Irena & Michal

another stay in this lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have spent four holidays at number 93, Quai des Etats-Unis, and have just booked for 2016.

We have been in June, July and October ( with mostly beautiful weather) and decided to try late September next year.

It's a very comfortable, well-equipped apartment, with just wonderful views over the Baie des Anges.

The proprietor, M. Pierre Layet, is a most charming gentleman, for whom nothing seems to be too much trouble.

The location of the apartment is ideal (Opera House, Flower Market, Old Town all very close), and there are some very good, typically Niçois, restaurants in the vicinity (we have enjoyed la Merenda and la Cambuse very much).

There is often a lot of activity on the Promenade itself, always perfectly organized, and usually great fun (with a bird's-eye view from the balcony, of course).

Second visit even better!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and adult daughter stayed in Pierre's lovely Apartment for a week two years ago and fell in love with it and Nice. This time we came for 2 weeks and honestly, it was still not Long enough. Pierre is absolutely a wonderful host. He replies to Messages very quickly. He arranged a pick up for us from the Airport, kindly brought us delicious cherries and melons and immediately replaced the coffee maker in the Apartment that unexpectedly broke.

The Apartment itself is well appointed with everything a vacationer Needs. Wifi worked flawlessly , everything for cooking was available. The balcony overlooking the sea is amazing and by far, our favorite Thing about the Apartment.

The Location is also excellent. Less than two blocks from flower market where vendors are incredibly friendly and helpful. Several small grocery stores are within 2 blocks also. Private and public beaches directly across the street.

I could write much more about this place and how wonderful it and Pierre are. We will definitely be back for a third time. When traveling to the Cote d'Azur, we will stay no where else.
