Nice Old Town (Vieux Nice) Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Beautiful, light & airy, high-ceiling 3 room apartment in the charming and historic Old Town of Nice, France. Unlike many old town apartments which are quite dark due to narrow pedestrian alleys, tall French windows and 2nd floor location provide for light. Parquet floors, well-equipped kitchen, well-lighted bathroom. The apartment is decorated in modern clean design with original art work.

About Janine Hudson

I am an artist and teacher. I live in Zurich but am originally from Florida. I hope to move to Nice one day! When in Nice, I love just being in the old town, enjoying local cuisine, lingering in cafés, strolling over to Place Garibaldi (5 minutes) and then taking the street which runs along the hill to the old port. There are many interesting shops along that way, with antiques, baskets, other stuff. Right at Garibaldi is MAMAC, the modern art museum, which I take a turn through every trip. The admission is free, as it is in many of the public museums. It is also worth taking a bus up to Cimiez to visit the Chagall Museum and then still further up to the Matisse Museum which adjoins an archaeological site and museum , and lovely gardens with view over the city!

There is an antique and knick knack market every Monday at Cours Saleya which is just two minutes away. Also a huge flea / antique market at Place Garibaldi one saturday per month.

Just off Cours Saleya is an exhibition space for architecture, run by the city - and the building it's in is worth noticing in itself!

And of course, there is the sea, three minutes across the Place de Palais and under the arches.

Janine Hudson purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Janine Hudson chose Nice Old Town (Vieux Nice)

I was born and raised in Miami, Florida, have lived in Zurich for many years. Here, I miss the proximity to the sea. Nice is for me, a way of returning to my roots, without having to go so far. Perhaps it is my French version of Miami Beach plus longer history, rich art history, beautiful weather, great architecture, great food.

I visited Nice first in 2000, returned, and then returned in 2010 to look for an apartment. Many of the apartments were renovated and chopped up older buildings, loft beds inserted which created rooms with low ceilings. When I entered this apartment, I breathed a deep sigh of relief, and fell instantly in love. The ceilings are high, the windows are tall and the location is great!

What makes this apartment unique

light and airy, very close to beach, good connections to everywhere in Nice and French Riviera.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely stay here! the apartment will easily accommodate 2 couples comfortably and its very close to shops/market and the beach. The food is amazing, the weather is amazing and the beach is just 5 mins walk. Apartment has everything you need and is very accommodating with breakfast area, beach chairs/umbrellas and plenty of towels too! There was so much to explore around the area. Don't forget to go in the specialist chocolate shop just across the way - its amazing and so is the lady that runs it! Port is just 15 min walk where they run regular snorkeling trips which we enjoyed very much, then we headed back for a few beers on the beach. This place was exactly what we expected plus more. I miss Nice already! The weather in the UK is not the same.

Great location, great apartment

  • 5 of 5
We had a great visit to Nice this recent summer. We had 5 adults in the apartment and although a little tight squeeze with that many adults, we had a great time! The apartment was clean, tidy, had everything you needed. Beds were comfy, and plenty of fans for the hot Nice sun! The bathroom facilities were great, a great opportunity to catch up on washing whilst travelling around France for 3 weeks.
Janine was great, everything was organised and worked well. Efficiently returned deposit too.
When back in Nice, I will definitely book again!

wonderful apartment close to the beach

  • 5 of 5
Imagine a charming apartment in the historical centre of Nice where you can be a few steps from wonderful dining options, yet only minutes from the beaches and the excitement that they offer. I took a couple of summer classes at the Nice law school and it was a nice 25-30 minute walk each direction to the campus. It isn't often that you happen across a clean, tastefully renovated apartment in a historical building that is at the center of the excitement and it is even rarer when the unit is an affordable alternative to spartan hotels or overpriced beachfront units. We spent a month in landlord's lovely apartment and it was a wonderful holiday for us. The location was central to everything - we walked pretty much everywhere, but there were also bus and tram stops quite close. There are a ton of merchants operating on the streets of Old Nice, but there were also several groceries within a few minute walk. The unit was well-furnished with a bed in the bedroom, a fold out bed in the front room, and a futon in the sitting room. The kitchen was well-stocked for us to prepare gourmet meals at home, but we still ended up checking out the many culinary options in the neighborhood. The apartment included a nice high speed internet which was useful for planning weekend excursions and taking care of business. The boulangerie located right outside the building was delicious, there are several glace shops nearby (Fenocchio is recommended), and there are culinary tastes to suit any budget and any preference (avoid the church square though - overpriced and pretty bad food). Our favorite nearby dinner spot was Casa Mia - look out the sitting room window and you can't miss it. Landlord was extremely helpful and very friendly over the course of our stay, the time leading up to it, and long after we left.

For those with a car, we found parking in garages nearby and also parked at the airport long-term lot and took the bus to/from the apartment.

I would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends/relatives.

A Little bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this charming apartment for 5 days in May on my first visit to Nice. I was impressed with the homey feel of this sunny apartment right in the middle of the historic district. The apartment was beautifully decorated, spotless, and included all the amenities. My favorite local attractions were the lovely flower, vegetable, and flea market, the Matisse Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art. The labrynth of local streets were filled with restaurants and lovely shops. I hope to come again soon and would certainly recommend it to family and friends.

Old Charm

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this beautiful apartment for 6 months. Our overall experience was great. The apartment is bright and very charming. The apartment is roomy with high ceilings and had all amenities we needed. The location is central, close to the beach, and markets. We recommend this apartment for those who want to feel and experience the old world of France.

Great value for money

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely flat for two weeks in Sept. We particularly enjoyed the proximity to the beach and the neighborhood restaurants. The Lebanese restaurant on the corner was our regular hangout. The flat was very well furnished with new dishes and nice bedding. We would recommend it without hesitation.
