Overview

About the property

Spacoius, bright, airy, convenient, highly recommended, sleeps up to 6 people

This attractive Nice apartment with 2 bedrooms accommodating 2 to 6 people is in a very convenient location just 60 metres from the Old Town (Vieux Nice). 2 rue Papon is a traditional Nicoise house built in 1900 with a typically Nicoise entrance hall and staircase in a characteristic Nicoise street in a very central position.

What is special is that this spacious, bright and sunny 2-bedroomed Nice apartment occupies the whole of the second floor of the building, so there are no other apartments on your level, thus giving additional privacy. Also, because the apartment is what the French call “traversant” (running from the front of the building through to the back), you have light from the south and the north and ‘through-air’ – very important on hot days and nights. The windows and balcony doors have the traditional wooden louvred shutters to keep the apartment cooler on very hot days. Highly recommended. Wonderful all-year around.

Hi Tony,

We had a great week at your apartment at Rue Papon. It is very well located and your restaurant recommendations were great.

We will recommend your place to our friends.

Traditional French apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth holiday in this apartment which is very comfortable - the location is excellent, so convenient for all amenities/good restaurants/local (cheap)! transport by bus (short walk) or tram to the rail station. We have always found the owner to be very helpful and accommodating.

Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed stay in beautifully furnished, comfortable appartment. It is spacious with ideal suntrap balcony to enjoy a glass of wine. Just round corner from delightful Pl Garibaldi with its outside cafes and the Vieux Ville for the buzz of its bars, restaurants and large daily flowermarket.

my stay in rue papon

  • 1 of 5

Myself and my family stayed in rue papon for 6 nights we were very unhappy with this apartment. the floors was so dirty we could not walk on our bare feet.the sofa and sofa bed was so uncomfortable. A tin of paint would go a long way in this apartment. on the up side there was always hot water and great location and the owner seems a very nice man.

Rue Papon Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed in the apartment for 3 nights. It is in a neighborhood that is right next to Place Giribaldi and the Place Giribaldi tram stop. We kept the windows open for the through breeze, and the neighborhood itself was very interesting. We had some very good meals at the restaurants in Place Giribaldi. It is also a short walk to the old town and the Promenade des Anglais. It is a short tram ride to the Nice Ville train station for day trips. All in all a very energizing and interesting place.
