About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, seperate toilet, sleeps 4, floor area 75m with Wi-Fi

A light, spacious apartment in the heart of Nice's historical Old Town. Two minutes from the beach, even less from the famous Cours Saleya Fruit and Flower market, and in the very centre of what makes this such a fabulous city to visit, its atmosphere and vibrancy. You could spend weeks here and never become bored enough to feel the need to search beyond its boundaries. Its pedestrianised narrow lanes teem with restaurants, bars and pavement cafes, alongside art galleries and antique shops. The apartment is on the third floor (no lift) of a 400 year old Nicoise building. The three main rooms each have two windows that allow light to flood in no matter the time of year. All you require is supplied to make your stay as pleasant and as comfortable as possible, from a vast selection of CDs and DVDs (if you can find the time) to all necessary kitchen gadgets. The TV receives UK satellite (non Sky) TV and radio broadcasts and Wi-Fi access is available. The contemporary bathroom has a seperate shower cubicle.

Incredibly charming flat in the heart og the old town!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is even nicer then it looks in the pictures and the location is amazing. 30 seconds from the flower market and 2 min from the sea. Couldn't ask for more!

We travelled with a baby and the flat is very child friendly - however do not bring too much luggage! It is a bit of a workout to bring the luggage and stroller up and down the stairs but I would gladly do it again.

On top of everything Peter makes it very easy to visit Nice. Whatever you need he can help you, very accommodating host.

Would definitely recommend this flat!

Perfect location, perfect size, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin? Let'start with Peter. Right from the beginning, he provided lots of information about the area, places to see, restaurants to visit. The information was invaluable while we were there.

The apartment was fantastic. It'location in the old town was exactly where you wanted to be. It was down an alleyway to lots of restaurants. Go the other way and you are at the market. Go straight down the way and you are at the Palais du Justice. Five minutes away, is the beach and lots of buses to Monaco, Cannes and Menton.

Now on to the apartment itself. For Nice, it was especially large. It had two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twins. There was a lot of storage if you were staying for an extended time. The living -dining area could accommodate many people with comfy couches and TV. The apartment bathroom has a magnificent tub and shower. My favorite part of the apartment were the tall windows with their green shutters!

The apartment is equipped with everything you need except food but in the warrens of old town, you will find anything for your heart's desire especially your am croissants! Yum. There are dishes, glasses etc enough so you don't have to run the dishwasher every day. We didn't use the coffee maker as it looked complex and I didn't want to break it.

It was a sad time when we lugged our bags down the stairs for the last time.

Great location in an old style building

  • 4 of 5

This 2 bedroom apartment is in a very handy location to restaurants and good shops. Metro close by and a few minutes walk to the beach. It can be quite noisy in the late evening if you want to leave the windows open but okay with windows closed. We did find the stairs a problem with our heavy luggage however. Apartment is well equipped with everything you need.

Perfect apartment in perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful apartment! We couldn't of asked for a better place to stay. The location is perfect, right in the old town and a five minute walk to the sea. It has everything you need and more. The kitchen is so well equipped even offering all you need to pack up a picnic for a day out or day trip.

Peter was so friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and that we had everything we needed.

It's the perfect place to stay for a long weekend and next time we will definitely extend our stay. There is just so much to do! Wonderful restaurants to eat out and a fantastic daily farmers market to pick up any bits you need, it literally a two minute walk away. A really wonderful apartment, home from home in a fantastic location.

Fantastic apartment in Old Nice

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! We booked very last minute and the owners were so helpful and obliging with such short notice. The apartment is so cosy, comfortable and well equipped, it had everything you could possibly need - including a cot for our baby and a high chair - which was a saviour, we found them quite difficult to find in France generally. Everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived.

Location in Old Nice was perfect - we were right amongst everything and so close to the markets and the beach. The restaurant downstairs was gorgeous. Having a baby we needed to spend a fair bit of time in the apartment while she slept and it was lovely to be able to relax with a glass of wine, open the windows and hear the bustle of Old Nice around us - it was just a lovely experience. These sort of apartments are the reason we prefer not to stay in hotels!

Once again, the owners were so helpful and sent us so much information on the local area, recommendations, helpful hints, everything. I would recommend this apartment to anyone!

just right!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed for a week at this apartment. we returned this april as we had had such a good experience 5 years ago with the city, the accommodation and peter's hospitality and expert attention to detail regarding arrangements.

we have 2 primary school aged children who loved it just as much as we did.

the apartment is absolutely perfectly located (presuming you can manage the stairs up to the 2nd/3rd floor). close enough to all old town sights and the promenade to pop back "home" thought the day if required. it is incredibly well furnished/stocked with books/dvd's/cooking equipment/condiments - just like being at home.

nice itself is fantastic. we brought our kids scooters from home and they loved zipping along the promenade cycle lane - we grown ups made good use of the very cheap "boris bike" rental network and chased after them!

the old town is an incredible place to just wander day and night. easy access to buses along the coast.

best place for socca = bella socca. best ice-cream = fenochio's on place rosetti.

warning to parents - once your kids have discovered the adventure play areas of the new park which runs the length of the old town you will be continually nagged to go back there - but it is worth it!!

we look forward to our 3rd trip in another 5 years. thank you peter and family.

The apartment is two strides away from Rue Prefecture in the pedestrianised sector of Old Nice, midway between vibrant Place Rossetti and the famous Cours Saleya flower, fruit and vegetable market. The beach is a two minute stroll away. There are innumerable restaurants, bars, cafes, art galleries and antique shops all within 250 metres of the apartment's doorstep. Nice is compact enough to discover thoroughly on foot, so a car is absolutely not necessary. If you wished to explore further afield, the Bus Station is a ten minute walk away, and the main Railway Station approx 1 kilometre and reachable by tram in 5 minutes. Every type of shopping is also close by, from Galerie Lafayette and the Nice Etoile shopping centre, to small boutiques selling unique fashion items, and speciality foods.
