A perfectly situated, totally refurbished apartment with full air conditioning. It is on the 2nd floor with no lift, but the staircase is wide and shallow as there are half landings, which make it very easy to negotiate. The apartment has two, equal size, double bedrooms, A bed for a 5th person can be provided for with an air mattress. The apartment has free Wifi, 42" HD TV, Blue Ray player with a large selection of movie discs and cd's. Fully equipped American Kitchen with Hob, Microwave Oven, Dish Washer, Washer Dryer, Fridge and small freezer compartment. Oak dining table and seating for 6 people. English owned and it is our second home. Ample storage space for clothing and suitcases. In the bathroom there are his and hers wash hand basins, a shower cubicle, wc and corner bath (Unusual for French apartments). There is also a separate wc, convenient for 2 but essential for 4 or more people. The bedrooms are at the rear of the apartment facing a courtyard area which is very quiet so undisturbed sleep with the windows open at night is possible. From one of the lounge windows you can see the entrance to the recently opened Coulee Verte. Place Garibaldi is the center hub for Cafes, transport, both Buses and Tramway to Airport, Station, Monaco and many other places en route. The location has the advantage of being close to the Old Town without the late night noise from partying revelers. If you like fresh seafood then the world famous Cafe de Turin is in the next building, book early to avoid disappointment. The double glazed windows are really efficient in blocking out any noise from outside, so you can enjoy the apartment in total peace and quiet.

About Brindsley Wright
Retired ex builder, absolutely love the South of France, Nice especially. So many excellent restaurants and a lovely place to explore especially the Old Town and the surrounding villages. So close to the mountains for winter skiing and plenty to see and do in the town itself. It took me a long time to find my apartment and it was worth the wait. I bought two 1 bed places and created a one 2 Bed apartment. As it was refurbished by a Marchand du Bien French builder the quality was assured and I had a lot of my own designs incorporated in the rebuild. The location was paramount as I wanted peace and quiet to sleep at night but be close enough to the action when I wanted it. Place Garibaldi is the center hub for tram and bus transport for the Airport, Railway Station, Cannes and Monaco. Belle, as we call it, ticked all the boxes and the name suits the apartment, Beautiful.
Brindsley Wright purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Brindsley Wright chose Old Town
Is perfectly located on the edge of the Old Town away from the noisy late night street revelers but close enough to enjoy and explore the narrow streets with many shops and restaurants. It is only paces from Place Garibaldi which, in my opinion is the coolest square in Nice.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is dual aspect so the bedrooms are at the rear of the apartment facing a private courtyard, so it is very quiet at night and possible to sleep undisturbed with the windows open. The bathroom, as well as a separate shower, has a corner bath, quite unique for french apartments.

Quiet and Convenient location in Old Town Nice
Two of us stayed in this apartment in mid October and were pleasantly surprised how comfortable we were making this our temporary home visiting Nice and the surrounding areas along the Mediterranean. From the start, Brindley was easy to communicate with by email and promptly answered questions I had before arrival. A simple text to the local property manager of my pending arrival, resulted in a promptly scheduled meeting at the address to exchange keys and explain the details of the remodeled apartment.
The location was excellent with train stop, grocery and restaurants at your doorstep!
The area is noisy in general but found the interior to be quiet with windows closed. The AC units are equipped with a “quiet mode” when needed. The kitchen was equipped to cook meals. Two rear bedrooms are quiet for sleeping. It’s really a third floor walk up with a wide staircase, so one needs to be able to carry luggage up and down. The only reason I didn’t give it a five star rating is because the unit is in need of a fresh coat of paint and the couch cleaned. Also, we found residents weren’t making sure the building entry door was locked securely behind them, which concerned us in such a busy area of town. Overall, it was good value and recommend it.
Place was clean, centrally located and perfect for the entire visit!
Very nice apartment. The owner was spot on with the description of the place. Felt safe the whole time I was there. I definitely would do this again. Place was centrally located and easy to get an Uber.
Thank you so much for your great review and we welcome you back at any time.
We loved it and would definitely return,
Highly recommended a very neat clean apartment, well situated for transport with trams running right outside. Many restaurants and shopping facilities in the area and close to the city centre. Jenny & John Wyllie
Thank you very much for your enthuastic review of your stay in my apartment. We would certainly love to have you back at some future date and are really pleased that you enjoyed Nice so much.
Great apartment in a beautiful city (listing description was spot on). Central location (Promenade de Arts) & close to lots of eateries, shops, transpo. A/C a blessing during hot summer. Some minor glitches but immediately remedied by owner and his local agent. With teens and varied eating habits, the variety of eateries available was great. We cooked our own meals fairly often too. Walkable distance to Promenade des Anglais, cours Saleya, etc. Took public transpo to surrounding cities (Cannes, Monte Carlo, Grasse, Milan, etc..)
Would highly recommend this place, and if we ever go back to Nice, we would rent this place again! Brin and Roxana were fairly easy to contact and very friendly too. Again would recommend this place unconditionally!!
Another glowing report means we are getting it right for the benefit of our guests. Thank you for your wonderful review of your stay and you would be welcome to return at any time.
Great value for the price
I was in Nice for Ironman France. This apartment gave me ample space to prepare and recover from my race, and it's close enough to walk to the start line (I took an Uber to conserve energy however race morning). The location is ideal and the restaurant below is fantastic. I had my two year old daughter and wife with me, and they loved it as well.
Place Garibaldi is one of the two main squares in Nice. It is bordered with many cafes including the world famous Cafe de Turin for freshly caught shell fish. It is close to the Port and conveniently placed on the edge of the Old Town. Across the street is the entrance to the recently opened La Coulee Verte gardens, which is a pleasant stroll to Place Massena and then on to the Promenade.
