West Nice Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self contained garden apartment in central Nice

We have a small , clean(25 SQ M, 30 sq. yd) apt in a secluded neigborhood, five minutes walk from the beach, shops and buses. The property is unique as it is situated as part of an old French bourgeoise villa that is completely modernized on the inside. You have your own entrance, a sunny garden with a marble table and patio chairs and use of two bikes. The studio has a little kitchen with a stove, oven, large refrigerator, kitchen supplies and sink. The shower room also has a small clothes washer. Accommodation is for two people(non smokers) The bed is a new clic clac standard double mattress which I present as a bed but can be converted as you wish. Utilities and fresh cotton linens are included. Heat in the winter and a fan in the summer. The studio is a perfect nest for seeing all of the Cote d'Azur.

Damage/security deposit/ reservations: To reserve the studio we ask that you pay a deposit of 70 euros to be paid into a pay-pal account. If you are blocking off a second week or more, we ask for half of the rent fee in advance to be put into a bank account.

A cancellation refund will depend on whether we rent the apartment for the blocked off time period.

Departure time is 10am if there is an arrival the same day otherwise we are flexible. Check in is at 4pm but if you come earlier you may leave your luggage safe with us until the apt is cleaned.

The 75 euros deposit is returned upon departure when you turn in your key and leave the place tidy and in good order.

If the studio requires a lot of cleaning, we will keep 25 euros of the deposit.

Bus from airport or train: To get to your apartment from the airport we advise the 23 bus from Terminal one at the Nice international Airport. (In Nice buses stop at 9pm so you will have to take the night bus or a taxi. )

If you come in on terminal two there is a free shuttle to terminal one. The buses are on the west side of the terminal. The bus fee is one euro to be paid in coins to the driver. He will give change for small bills too. Check the number of stops(eleven) at the bus stop or stand next to the driver so he can signal your stop at Av de Fabron. The distance of the bus from the train is also eleven stops. The buses from the station (Gare) is the number 12 or 23 to our bus stop, Av de Fabron. Ask for the details by email if I have not already sent them.

Arrival time/ booking last days of a full month: We usually have a good idea of when folks will arrive if they are coming by plane. However, we would like to advise that you plan carefully, especially if you are driving. Give yourself plenty of time.

We will not accept arrival of guests after 10PM without charging an extra fee of 20 euros.

If there are four or five days left in a month that is already booked and you would like to come for a short stay, we will consider taking you for a shorter period than usual.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Queridos Marie y Kerry,

Aunque no somos los primeros españoles en venir a vuestro apartamento, se seremos los primeros en dejaros un escrito en español. Nuestra estancia de una semana en Chemin des Grottes 16 ha sido FANTASTICA. Toda la zona de la Cote d’Azur nos ha parecido muy bello y esperamos a visitarla pronto.

Os damos las gracias por vuestra hospitalidad y amabilidad a partir del primer dia. Ojala nos volvamos algún dia.

quite garden like in the country side

  • 5 of 5
The garden is the best during our stay because we have diner and breakfast there. When the weather is good sitting in this beautiful court yard garden is a fantastic experience.

The house is close the the blue beach, if one walks down the hill and pass through the rail way bridge, the sea just suddenly comes into eyes, which always gives me a pleasant mood in the day.

Best wishes to you, Marry and Kerry! Hope you enjoy the life in Nice as well.

Lovely and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this property. The terrace catches the afternoon sun and is perfect for relaxing with a glass of local wine.

It's a very quiet location, but close to facilities and a few minutes walk from the sea.

It's easy to get to from the airport; there's a supermarket nearby; and it's a nice walk (40 mins) to town along the seafront, or catch a bus for a euro.

Everyone was friendly and helpful - we'll be back for another stay soon!

Lovely romantic week in the sun

  • 5 of 5
What a delightful week we had (even though it rained some of the time)!

The apartment is cosy but not too small. The owners are very helpful and hospitable.

Lots of leaflets left there which we found useful for finding our way about. There is a well stocked kitchen, and a lovely little courtyard where you can sit and eat your supper. There's a friendly cat which hangs around there too.

Good location, away from the hustle and bustle. Only a very short walk to shops, buses and the beach. Nice town centre is about 30 minutes walk away.

Have recommended to friends, and would definitely go again!

Perfect Stay Away

  • 5 of 5
I had a really relaxing and peaceful time here. It is a quiet neighbourhood and away from all the tourists in the main centre. The beach is quiet compared to the main beach, so you are able to lay close to the water and a good distance away from people.

The studio is very clean and has a sweet little kitchen and a courtyard area which you are able to sit and eat your dinner at.

Mary and Kerry are the most hospitable people and if you have any questions they will go above and beyond to explain it to you.

I would recommend this place to anyone its absoulately perfect!
Thank you for a wonderful wonderful stay

Relaxing Stay by the Seaside!

  • 5 of 5
Highly recommended property, it is a short walk from the beach (the description says 5-10 minutes, but I found it to be less than that) and there are frequent bus services to the centre of Nice, but it is a20-30 minute stroll along the promenade to get there so I just walked!

It is a great location for visiting the beach and day trips to surrounding Monaco, Cannes, Grasse, etc. Very nice to be a little outside of the centre and living more like a local, and the option to self-cater with a well appointed kitchen and convenient supermarket was very budget friendly!

The apartment itself is as pictured/listed, yes, it really is that cute (courtyard is gorgeous), comfortable, everything worked, very clean, no complaints at all! Mary (the owner) is absolutely lovely and will help you out with anything that you need.

Zero complaints, absolutely recommend this place 100%!

PS.... An activity I would recommend would be a day trip to Grasse, it was only 1 euro each way (bus leaves from the promenade) which has perfume houses (you can design your own scent or just shop) and a really amazing perfume museum where you can indulge all of your senses by smelling and touching the ingredients for perfume (as well as looking at gorgeous vintage bottles and listening to educational audio... ok there is nothing to taste but there is great food in the surrounding town).

Cosy studio by the sea

  • 4 of 5
Studio is located in quiet area, close to the bus stop, shops, internet cafe and the beach... Half an hour walk from town centre if you miss the last bus ;) Small but nice. If you're looking for a budget place this one has all you need. Small patio area to relax among palms and citrus trees. Shower needs updating but otherwise place is ok.

Nice has endless attractions in the way of dining,museums,day trips and night life. Here in our location,you don't need a car. And the new bike system lets you rent a bike for as little as 1 euro and return it to another location in the town. Buses run regularly and provide quick and easy access to the train station for day trips to Cannes, Antibes, Eze, and Monte Carlo as well as market day in Italy right across the border. Trips to the mountain villages (Breil, Tende, Entreveax...).can be accessed by special local trains. At the bus stop 5 minutes away, you can catch the express bus to the airport or nearby towns as well as the old town of Nice. In Winter the ski slopes are only 45 minutes away or in summer the beach is 7 minute walk away. There is something for everyone.

Other Activities: beach, boating, train to mountains, train to Italy, boat to Saint Tropez (summer)

Notes

  • We ask a minimum stay of 4 ( 7 in the high season) nights except where there are only 3 nights left available which we will consider upon request.

    For some periods we will consider three days rent with an additional 25 euro cleaning fee. Please ask.
    In Jan, Feb and March and April, we rent for one/ two month ( we prefer not more than one month with exceptions) at a much reduced rate which includes a cleaning with fresh linens and a cleaner coming half way through your stay. This service may be provided each week for a small fee. Please inquire about rental for one month in the 'off' seasons.
  • The traditional deposit is the cleaning/security deposit of 75 euros for a one week stay or less. This money will be counted as the reservation deposit that is put into paypal. For reservations far in advance of the date or lengthy stays we ask more for the deposit.

    At the end of your stay if everything is left neat and in good order, that money is returned to you. If the apartment is left dirty, a 25 euro fee will be charged and if damaged you will be charged accordingly.

    Utilities and pay pal fees are included in the prices.
  • Deposits held for long range reservations will not be refunded unless reservations are cancelled more than 120 days in advance or unless the studio is eventually rented for that time period.

    A THIRTY EURO FEE WILL BE CHARGED FOR CANCELLATIONS.

    For a two weeks stay in peak season, we ask a third of the rent.
