Nowadays, I live in beautiful Nice after few years in Paris, and 16 years in New York City. I choose to live in Nice, as it is at the same time, a village (where the apartment is located), a city with an interesting cultural life, the beauty of the place, the nature, and the numerous sightseeings and activities, and the magic Mediterranean blue Sea. Italy is also very close.

I like very much to travel, the nature, have a special attraction for Asia, where I often take trips and like also to volunteer teaching.

And enjoy the specially great climate in this beautiful part of France, where there are unlimited things to discover.

It is a pleasure for me to do my best to make my guests feel at home at Zen Om and in order for them to enjoy at best their holidays, and to have the pleasure to meet them again.

Stupendo appartamento ed area di Nizza

  • 5 of 5

Appartamento molto curato, confortevole ed estremamente pulito e silenzioso ed accoglienza molto attenta da parte della proprietaria piena di suggerimenti ed indicazioni. La casa si trova nella vecchia Nizza e la sua posizione consente di godere della città antica nella sua pienezza e del mare raggiungibile facilmente con una piacevole passeggiata attraverso i vicoli del centro storico nel giro di pochi minuti. I mezzi di trasporto pubblico ed il parcheggio sono vicinissimi e ottimi ristoranti, caffè, panetterie e negozi sotto casa. Siamo ritornati con piacere per la seconda volta e consigliamo la scelta. La zona è la più autentica di tutta Nizza. Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo

Charme et détente dans le coeur du Vieux Nice

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé d’excellentes vacances en aout dans l’appartement Zen Om !

Nous y avions déjà séjournés durant l’hiver et notre choix d’y retourner étaient pour nous évident. Car l’appartement est très comfortable, meublé avec goût et beaucoup de charme et bien équipé et extrêmenent propre et accueillant. Il est aussi clair et calme, situé dans une rue piétionne tranquille et pittoresque dans le coeur du Vieux Nice.

En sortant de l’immeuble tout est à disposition, les meilleurs petits commerçants, traiteurs, boulangeries, cafés, restaurants, supermarchés, marché de produits frais, boutiques, bus, tram, vélos bleus de la ville, en bref une situation idéale, pleine de charme et d’authenticité.

Le jolie parc Promenade du Paillon juste en traversant la rue et la mer et ses plages privées et publiques à moins de 5 minutes à pied par les ruelles charmantes et pittoresques du Vieux Nice.

De l’appartement, on peut aller partout à pied. il est aussi très facile d’aller explorer les environs par bus et train, nous avons laissé la plupart du temps notre voiture au parking des Arts, situé à 2 minutes pied.

L’accueil de Françoise, la propriétaire, est extrêmement chaleureux, toujours prête à donner les meilleures recommandations et informations.

Nous recommandons vivement Zen Om !

Francoise has thought of everything to make the stay comfortable and without stress including a free introductory French lesson. The place is beautifully appointed, very clean and an integrated part of old Nice with its centuries old architecture, winding narrow passageways, closeness to the sea, little markets, great restaurants and general hustle. Francoise was just great. The place is clean, and air conditioned (important to me!), and it seems to me she thought of everything one could need.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very warm feedback! I’m very pleased you enjoyed at best your holiday at Zen Om and its very special area. It is my pleasure to make my guests as comfortable as possible and to help if I can. Indeed, as an experienced French language teacher, I thought that a small “gift to go” of a short language session, might be usufull and appreciated by some of my guests who wish. I would like very much to know the name of the guest behind this very nice review! (without the exact date I can’t find out). If you feel like changing this, please contact homeaway customer service asking to change what they call “Nickname” for your first name and initial of last name. In any case thanks for your time writing this review. With my warmest regards, Francoise

Zen Om is a perfect get-a-way in Old Nice.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is ideally located for your vacation in Nice and was exactly as described. It is within easy walking distance of good markets, the beach and affordable restaurants. Central shopping in Nice is a ten minute walk along the Promenade du Paillon. Public transportation, convenient and easy to use, connects readily with the airport and train stations. While the kitchen is rather small, it is serviceable and contains everything one might need. Air conditioning was appreciated on those warmer days. The apartment, on the 4th floor, does present a daunting climb. However, the light and fresh air well compensate for the climb.

Liked best: The neighborhood.

Liked least: The stairs.

Traveling group: Spouse/Partner

Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Yes.

Owner's Response: Dear Bev and Craig, Thank you very much for your enthusiastic feedback and description concerning your extended holidays of 21 days at Zen Om in August. You had indeed the time to feel at home in the apartment, and its special and very convenient location, and to explore the countless beauties of the area. It is very important to me that my guests feel happy and very comfortable for their holidays, and book the suitable property for them. I am therefore very careful to indicate that there is no elevator, as it is the case in buildings in Old Nice, on the site , my letter answering requests, and letter to agree before booking. As you experienced however, the stairs in the building are low (compare to others buildings in Old Nice), and the staircase very well ventilated and bright. So let’s say, a bit of exercice bounded to charming Old Nice, the heart of the city at all points of view. I greatly appreciate your recommendation to your friends and on the site. It was a real pleasure to meet you both, I feel lucky to have had such wonderful guests staying at Zen Om. Hoping to have the pleasure of your visit again, my best wishes! Francoise, the owner

This delightful apartment was just as described. We found it to be a comfortable, quiet but very central base for our holiday. Checking in and out was made very simple by Francoise the apartment owner. We also found all of the information Francoise supplies in the guidance books invaluable for getting around the city. We had a wonderful and relaxing time.
