IDEAL LOCATION - SLEEPS 4, COMPLETELY REFURBISHED, MINS FROM BEACH, CITY CENTRE.

Central Nice Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Centrally located. 1-bed, 1 bath. Sofa bed in lounge. West facing balcony

Beautifully refurbished, this well appointed 32m/s 1-bedroomed, 1 bathroom apartment in a stone Nicois building just off Rue Jean Medecin offers everything you need for a great self catering break in Nice. Close to shops (1 block from Galeries Lafayette and Nice Etoile Shopping Centre) and restaurants, yet only a short walk from the Old Town and the beach, it is ideally located in a quiet street, at the back of the building, avoiding any street noise. The apartment is on the third floor (no lift) with 1 ensuite double bedroom, double sofa bed in lounge, modern kitchen area with dishwasher, fridge, oven and hob. Stunning bathroom leads off bedroom with walk-in shower. Separate toilet. Furnished with modern Habitat furniture and parquet flooring. Flat screen TV with DVD player, PlayStation console, wifi, games, books and DVDs. West facing, it gets the blissful afternoon sun on the balcony.

Ski-ing: Despite the Mediterranean climate, the ski slopes are within easy reach, there is even a ski bus at weekends/French school holidays. Alternatively, you can get a normal bus for 1 euro 50 centimes pp although the journey takes a couple of hours but it is well worth it. We go skiing from our flat, catching the 0715y ski bus which takes you to the ski resorts of Isola 2000 or Valberg, allowing a good day ski ing before catching the evening bus home.

Beach: Nice has pebbly beaches but for about 15euros a day you can live the life of luxury with a sunbed, parasol and waiter-service on one of the many private beaches. Nearby Villefranche has the best beach for swimming and is a shingle beach. There is a sandy beach at Antibes.

Sight seeing: Nice has a plethora of museums, including Matisse and Modern Art collections and historical buildings and beautiful places of worship. The walks around the Old Town can take a few hours and must include a walk up to the Chateau. Take the train/bus to Monte Carlo, the perfumeries of Grasse and Eze or the designer shops of Cannes. We have been visiting Nice for several years and still haven't seen all there is to see!

I first got to know Nice when I was a campsite rep in the 80s, my husband and I went back in 2007 as he was competing in Ironman Nice and we fell in love with the South of France all over again and decided to buy a property. As with everything, we don't get to spend enough time out there so decided to rent it out to holidaymakers in 2008 and have been consistently busy ever since, with lots of repeat business. We live in Canterbury, UK but are both from York originally. I work for a charity and my husband works for the NHS and we have a son who is now at university in Sheffield studying Politics, so we are now 'empty nesters' and enjoying the peace and quiet...and tidy house!

Lynne Murphy purchased this apartment in 2007

We chose this apartment as it had been completely renovated and was in a perfect location, near all the main shops yet on a quiet side street, away from the hustle and bustle of a city. We originally wanted to buy somewhere in the Old Town but found it too noisy at night and none of the apartments we viewed let in much light, which was a prerequisite. We love Nice because it is very accessible from the airport and has so many things to see and do, with other lovely places within easy reach, even some skiing in winter!

We love our property because it is clean, modern and minimal, easy to maintain and very comfortable, with friendly neighbours, lovely balcony which gets the afternoon sun and accessible for the train, bus and trams...and so near the lovely shops of Nice, yet only a short walk to the Old Town and beach.

LOVELY FLAT IN NICE

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time in Nice staying in this super flat. Very central to everything. So many restaurants to chose from I will have to come back again. The flat is well maintained with comfortable bed, wonderful hot shower and all amenities. Made good use of the wifi and the handy bakery downstairs. Felt very much at home - almost like a local. Weather was hot too so all in all a excellent holiday. I would definitely come back again and recommend Nice as an interesting place to stay. Thank you for a lovely time.

PERFECTLY LOCATED FOR ALL THAT NICE HAS TO OFFER.

  • 5 of 5
The owner of this apartment provided excellent customer service, and her local agent was extremely helpful when we arrived. The apartment was in a quiet street minutes from the centre of Nice, the beach and transport links,which made getting to other locations along the coast really easy. The accommodation was tastefully decorated,very clean and well equipped. The bathroom is modern with a walk in shower which was brilliant after the hot days in the sunshine. You need to be prepared for stairs as there is no lift up to the apartment,so this may not suit some people. Overall we had a fantastic stay and will definitely be returning to Nice and this apartment.

IMMACULATELY EQUIPPED, BEAUTIFULLY CLEAN AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
Excellent welcome ,we were shown how to operate all electrical equipment, including internet access. The compact apartment is extremely well equipped, spotlessly clean and benefits from a very comfortable bed. It is in a quiet location yet within easy walking distance to all the beautiful sights and attractions of central Nice. A boulangerie and mini market in Rue Blacas made obtaining basics very easy. Perfect location for all transport.

EXCELLENT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
Excellent property. All you need in on your doorstep from shops, restaurants, the tram, the old town...everything.

Property has a lovely balcony which gets the sun in the afternoon/early evening. Really nice after a walk to relax. The owners have prepared a folder with all information about the area, the TV has lots of channels, there is a DVD player, WIFI..it felt like a home from home.

Rooms are well sized and perfectly finished. Upon arrival, the flat was spotless. Great kitchen and perfect shower. Property well maintained.
Again -> The location is so good.

I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to visit Nice.

Thanks
Chris

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in Nice. The apartment was clean and nicely decorated - and the size is perfect for a couple. Perfect location - close to everything.

LOVELY CLEAN APARTMENT IN A GOOD LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
I required a 3 night stay for myself and my husband as a surprise 40th birthday treat! This was the first apartment owner I contacted and was the only owner who would accept a 3 night booking! The apartment was lovely and clean. Everything we needed was there. Lovely bathroom. We didn't use the kitchen as we were there to relax! Would recommend this as a central base walking distance to shops beach transport and many restaurants! Perfect!!!

Car: not necessary

Centrally located on the quiet side street of Rue Blacas, yet just a few metres from the main shopping street of Avenue Jean Medecin, with its impressive indoor shopping plaza, Nice Etoile, and just a short walk to

the Promenade des Anglais and the beach.

Don't bother with expensive car hire! Transport in Nice is cheap and efficient with a choice of tram, bus or train. The tramline is on Jean Medecin and the apartment is approx 5 minutes' walk from the main train station (Nice-Ville), airport bus stop and several bus routes run past the end of the street. Buses/trams cost 1,50 euros pp per journey....you can get to Monaco, Cannes, Grasse by bus, the trains are also relatively inexpensive and efficient. The direct bus to Nice airport is 6 euros pp, and picks up at the end of Rue Blacas/Chauvain.

The apartment is at rear of building so no intrusive road noise which is a feature of many apartments. Next door there's a boulangerie for your daily croissant, further down there's a mini-mart, and Casino supermarket is a 5 minute walk.
