About Ray and Jacky Tarleton

Ray used to be a head teacher and Jacky taught English. We bought the apartment as a holiday home because we love the variety of Nice - sea, city, museums and restaurants galore. We are also both opera fanatics so a home in Avenue Auber, next to Rue Verdi and Rue Rossini, around the corner from Place Mozart was irresistible - especially when the estate agents told us what a desirable area this is.

Because of family commitments, we are unable to spend as much time in Nice as we would like. Until that changes, we like to share the pleasure of our apartment with others, so that they can also enjoy the delights of Nice.

Ray and Jacky Tarleton purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Ray and Jacky Tarleton chose Thiers

The area is convenient for everything. You don't need a car. Links to the airport and local destinations are easy. We use the airport bus (6 Euro and a 20 minute ride) to get here and then chill out for as long as we can stay.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the bright sunny mornings on our balcony. We draw down the sun canopy and enjoy coffee. The air is so clear it's no wonder so many Impressionist came here. At midday, we visit the nearby boulangerie or a local café for lunch and then go on to the Promenade des Anglais to read or swim. The sea is deep azure blue with warm currents so the season for swimming is a long one from April to October.

There are concerts, operas and musical events at the Opera House, in the parks and on the Promenade. The Nice Carnival is held in February each year and there are fireworks on Bastille Day. At Christmas there are many interesting decorations, a Ferris Wheel and the oyster and champagne bar.

If we're feeling energetic, we take a bus or train to explore Monaco, Cannes, Antibes or Italy. The choice is endless.

We have full internet access so can listen to UK radio or read the papers online on our lap tops. Our TV system has multiple channels to relax to in the evenings - unless we are meeting friends, eating at one of the many restaurants in the area, or seeing films in English (VO-version originale) in the local cinemas.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Your apartment is lovely, it’s really comfortable and very well equipped and in a brilliant location.Best bits for us, relaxing on the balcony in the cool of the evening after a hot day out exploring Nice and its surroundings.'

'The apartment is absolutely lovely - perfect for exploring and wonderful to return to in the evenings.'

'We enjoyed your lovely apartment and thank you for sharing it with us! Nice is such a beautiful city and the water and area are something to treasure. We hope to visit again and when we do, if your apartment is available, it will definitely be our first choice!'

Our third stay in this lovely apartment.That really says it all!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exceptionally clean. Delightful balcony. Also, it's well placed for station, prom or shops! Celine, who greets you, is so helpful and lives nearby if any help or advice is needed. Always keen to help guests or arrange a taxi if required. She's a delight.

Beautiful cozy flat!

  • 4 of 5

This flat is well located to walk to any of the sites in Nice as well as the train station.

We arrived from Canada just in time to experience the first snowfall in 8 years! :(

There is some hustle and bustle at all hours of the night so if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs as I did and it solved the issue.

There are many great restaurants and grocery stores close by!

Thank you to Ray and Jacky! We'll be back hopefully for better weather!

Beautiful apartment in a beautiful city

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Nice and we weren't disappointed! The apartment was very tastefully decorated, fully equipped, spotlessly clean and ideally located. Nice is a very beautiful city with a lovely, friendly atmosphere and lots to do and see in the area. We had a fabulous holiday! Nice has totally captured our hearts and we'd love to return - hopefully to stay in this lovely apartment! We highly recommend both!

What a joy it was to stay in Ray and Jacky's apartment -- very spacious, well appointed, excellent location, even niceer than the description. The apartment is full of natural light and we loved having the balcony, especially for a late afternoon or nighttime glass of wine. The place was spotless and beautifully painted. Furniture and decor were attractive, functional and smart for travelers. After 10 days in much smaller hotel rooms, having this amount of space AND the convenience of a washing machine was great for us. Celine is a gem and could not have been more helpful, although the apartment is set up so intuitively, we could almost have walked in with no assistance. We loved Nice and should we revisit, we would love to stay in the Tarleton apartment again. Thanks -- Stanley and Ellen, Los Angeles, California

We loved this place. The photographs actually don't do this apartment justice. It is truly spacious, modern, and beautiful. Celine was there to help orient us on arrival. After that everything went very smoothly. It's high enough up that the street noise from maintenance vehicles in the early morning was not too much of a problem. The internet was fantastically excellent, over 100 mb/sec.
