From there, cross the Promenade & you have the BEACH!

The Medieval old town of Nice is along the seafront, a pedestrian area with narrow streets winding between ancient buildings with red-tiled roofs.

New & efficient TRAMWAY in Nice! Several stops for the old town, takes you around Nice like a breeze: to train station, to shopping area, etc.

Beautiful & spacious condo - 80sqm - in a historic building, recently & faithfully renovated, with a well-equipped kitchen, and very spacious living room. The charming bedroom has a STUNNING VIEW of the pedestrian steps leading to the ruins of the Medieval Château and its park. Walk up those steps for a panoramic view of Nice!

Delighted customers even wrote to the main newspaper in San Francisco (San Francisco Chronicle) about us.

The ONLY place to stay in Nice

  • 5 of 5

I had never been to southern France before and would be staying for a month, three weeks of it by myself. Because of Minh, and this fantastic apartment, it was one of the most memorable experiences of my life! Her suggestions of where to, HOW TO GET THERE, were priceless. The apartment was absolutely perfect in every way. The decor was cheerful and tasteful and it was supplied with everything you would ever need. And the LOCATION could not have been better. I shopped the Cours Saleya( local outdoor market) which was right outside my door, enjoyed an espresso from the bakery right next door( the owners are great and speak English)then walked along the beach every morning. The quaint but authentic shops are all around you and it's just a nice walk to the bus and train stops if you choose to venture to nearby Cannes, Monaco or even ITALY. (I am so glad I took Minh's advice and did not rent a car!). I will go back and would never even consider looking for any other place to stay!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travel often and we both said our trip to Nice, France was one of our favorites! This apartment is in a great location! Wonderful restaurants & shops near by. Minh was very helpful as well as Sandra! One of our favorite memories was shopping for fresh pasta just around the corner and fresh vegetables from the Market! We even cooked twice while we were there! It was a very unique experience being part of the neighborhood! We would recommend this apartment for sure for its location!

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 10nights and loved feeling part of old Nice in this apartment with its centuries old beams in the heart of the old township. Minh was very helpful and responsive to my emails and Sandra was a delight to meet. Lovely bubbly personality. The spacious lounge was relaxing with plenty of seating areas. The wifi was relatively speedy and the kitchen was well- stocked. Minh has provided heaps of information on things to do in Nice and the apartment had a lovely homely feel with children's drawings on the wall and beach equipment which could be borrowed. Would definitely recommend it to others.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Excellent location for restaurants, shops, bakery, sight-seeing, transportation. The apartment has one of the best equipped kitchens of our rental places and the information provided regarding things to see, places to eat, transportation to other places, important phone numbers, etc was excellent. Our welcome to the apartment went smoothly, thanks to Sandra, as well as our check-out.

Great Apartment in Vieux Nice

  • 5 of 5

We spent March 2013 in this charming apartment in vieux Nice and enjoyed it so much, in spite of overcast skies, that we went back for the month of March again this year. This time we enjoyed lots of the fabled Nice sunshine. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, and right in the heart of the old city, five minutes to the Cours Saleya and only a couple more to the Med. We loved living in vieux Nice, picking up fresh bread every morning from the bakery around the corner, shopping at the Market, the pasta shop, the boucherie, and eating at some of the great little restaurants in the area. We walked all over, essential to counteract all that good eating, and took the bus to some of the other towns along the coast and in the hills--Antibes, St. Paul de Vence, Eze, and Monaco. The apartment is well-equipped and provided with everything we needed. The owner, Minh, gave us plenty of information about old Nice, shops, restaurants, etc., and her manager, Jean, was very helpful in helping us get settled and dealing with any small problems that arose. We enjoyed our second visit as much as the first.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, two adults and three small kids, stayed in this apartment for one week during our two month French/Italian vacation. This was definitely our favorite part of the whole trip and only regret not staying here longer.

The apartment was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Fully equipped kitchen with everything we needed to make family meals from the fresh and delicious produce we bought at the nearby Cours Saleya Market. A large living/dining area with big table and comfortable seating. Excellent wifi connection and free international calling!

The neighborhood was superb and extremely convenient if you don't have a car (which I would not recommend in this part of France unless you want a big headache). Everything you need is within a short walking distance, the best restaurants, bakeries, food markets, laundromat, shops, museums, beach, public transportation... Old Nice is super fun, multicultural, and vibrant place night and day. Perfect place to stay if you want to be in the middle of all the action.

The owner, Minh, and her representative, Jean, went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of. Before our trip, Minh even sent us a packet with helpful information on sightseeing, transportation and recommendations on restaurants and shopping.

The French people we encountered during our trip, from bus drivers to shopkeepers and farmers at the market, were pleasant, courteous and made the American tourist feel welcome in their beautiful country. We loved France and will definitely go back!
