About the property

2 Bedroom Apartment Paces from Place Garibaldi, On the Edge of the Old Town.

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 Nice

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.

Lovely apartment in Nice

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Nice and enjoyed the apartment. The location was great; we were on the edge of Old Town and walked to everything. There was a grocery store across the street and a terrific pastry shop right down the street.

The apartment was well maintained. The windows looked to be fairly new and created sound barriers so no noise could be heard when closed.

We felt like this was in a good, safe location. If we ever go back to Nice some day, we would rent again.

Thank you for renting your apartment.

We thoroughly enjoyed Brin's Nice apartment. The location was perfect! It was close to the tram, restaurants and shopping. The apartment was clean and just as described. Roxanne met us at the apartment and even helped us to carry our luggage upstairs. She had wonderful suggestions for beaches and things to do. I highly recommend the apartment. We wish that we had booked more days!

Beautiful apartment in the Old Town of Nice centrally located to all amenities

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous apartment centrally located to all amenities - less than 10 minutes walk to the beach through cobbled streets filled with lovely restaurants and shops. The apartment itself was very comfortable - lovely comfy sofa and beds; bathroom was very impressive - everything you want in the apartment with supermarket across the road and bakery around the corner to get your fresh croissants and pastries for breakfast! We loved this place and will definitely be back.

This apartment was everything it said it would be. The level of decoration and equipment was perfect, the location as stated very close to Place Garibaldi and easy access to old Nice town. Roxana was very patient with us as we were delayed on our flight and late getting to the apartment not helped by no direct airport bus transfer at the moment. We loved it and would recommend it and will be back, thank you Brin!

A very nice apartment in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

A very pleasant apartment in a perfect location for the old town and central Nice.

There's work going on for the new tram line but confined to the far quarter of the square and doesn't intrude in terms of noise. Café de la Place has happy hour from 6-8pm to compensate.

Spacious living area, good sized bedrooms and a very smart bathroom. The property was clean and well maintained, and Roxana the manager welcomed us and showed us around.

The owner's description is absolutely accurate and we will be looking to stay here again.

One minor annoyance - air conditioning is controlled by motion detectors. Fine for the living room but no use for the bedrooms unless you move around a lot! Didn't affect us too much as the weather was pleasantly warm but could be a problem on warm humid nights.

Thanks Brindsley and Roxana for a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for such a good review, I take on board your point about the Air con sensors as they can be overridden to stay on. I agree this would be necessary during the hottest months of July and August.

Convenient, pleasant and clean

  • 4 of 5

Great location near the old town and the linear park into the centre of Nice. Apartment clean and beds very comfortable. Supermarket opposite the apartment excellent. Trams run past the front door so access to the centre of Nice, railway station and airport, the latter by bus, is very easy. A strole into Nice centre is marvellous either through the old town streets or via the magnificent linear park. Never seen facilities to match it for all the family. Nice is a magical place day or night. Trips to Monte Carlo and Antibes so easy and inexpensive. So many other places to visit so we shall return. Restaurants everywhere and the quality and proportions of the food lived up to the best of French cuisine. Wifi excellent and appreciated by us and our granddaughters. Never did get the TV to work.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I am so sorry that you were unable to operate the TV you could have asked Roxana to help you. I stayed at the apartment immediately after for 4 days and watched the news on the TV every day. I am disappointed that you appear to have marked our star rating down to 4 stars because of this.

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.
