VERY LARGE MODERN 3 BED FLAT IN HEART OF NICE, CHILDREN WELCOME

Central Nice Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Ideal for Carnival, the Jazz Festival, Xmas, summer and exploring coast

Just off great shopping on Avenue Jean Medecin, with the train station five minutes walk away and the beach ten minutes, my large flat is a great base for exploration. The huge open plan lounge combines sitting and dining area with French windows opening onto a small balcony. A new galley kitchen offers modern cooker, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. Two spacious double bedrooms (one with en-suite shower and toilet) lead off on either side of the central hallway. One twin bedroom overlooks the inner courtyard and there is space for extra guests using the double sofa bed in the lounge, so that it comfortably accommodates 6-8 people. There is a second shower/bathroom at the end of the hallway. The flat runs east to west and is on the fourth floor of a 'bourgeois' building, overlooking Rue Miron. The feel is light and airy with air conditioning in the lounge, and fans in all other rooms.

Previous guests have spent a winter week skiing and then come down to Nice for Christmas or New Year, which makes for a lovely combination.

Elton John's favourite restaurant, 'La Petite Maison' in Vieux Nice opposite the Opera House, is worth trying if you are prepared to blow your budget, but there are also a host of non-touristy restaurants for the locals all over Nice.

I supply further details of all local attractions and also full instructions for the flat when I send out the keys.

There is no concierge in the block, which is inhabited by local people, in other words it isn't a building full of tourists.

About Rosalind Erskine

I am a retired BBC TV producer. I bought my flat using some redundancy money because I wanted to spend more time in the South of France. The whole family come regularly as we all love the area and also friends use Nice as a base for exploring the interior and the coast line down to Italy. .

Rosalind Erskine purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Rosalind Erskine chose Central Nice

I chose this property because it is both very central, in the heart of the nineteenth century town that surrounds Avenue Jean Medecin and which developed during Victorian times when the Belle Epoque period and architecture became fashionable among the Brits who flocked to the Cote d'Azur in the winter. I can walk from the flat to the Opera House in Vieux Nice in about 15 minutes (or go by tram) and in general I have excellent access to everything central.

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is high up (on the fourth floor) so very light, airy and spacious and also properly modernised, unlike many places in France and many others that I saw in Nice!

Elegant French simplicity in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5
The flat was perfect for our week long stay in Nice. The location is fantastic, just off the Avenue Jean-Medecin, so practical for an airport arrival, as the bus stops at the top of the street. And just a gentle stroll down to the sea and the old town. The interior is elegant, simple, clean and comfortable, with beautiful high ceilings, windows, and polished parquet flooring. The bedrooms are spacious and beds comfortable. The two bathrooms were a real bonus, no queuing up in the morning for a shower! Everything we needed was provided and although the flat does have a/c in the main living area, we didn't need to use it as the flat was neither too hot nor too cold. This is our ninth trip to Nice, a trip which we make every year at the same time, end of June/early July, and it is the most comfortable flat we have stayed in.

Perfect property

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of six sixty somethings who found the apartment perfect for our stay. The property was as described on the rental site and with the large airy lounge made for easy relaxing after days out walking in the area.
The lift to the apartment on the fourth floor only held three people so the three men folk kept themselves fit by using the stairs while the women took the lift.
All the information supplied by the owner before we arrived was of great assistance in ensuring we could find our way around and visit the recommended restaurants and places of interest in the surrounding area.
The village of Eze is well worth a visit and as the film festival in Cannes was on during our stay, we had fun trying to spot the stars there.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the property to friends and family and will certainly use it when we next visit Nice.
There are shops and restaurants around every corner from the apartment and the rail station is only five minutes walk away.
One big attraction is the one and a half euro flat fare for the bus journeys all over the area - even as far as Monaco and Menton.

Lovely spacious, clean and convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of ladies coming to celebrate a 50th birthday. We had a wonderful time and spent three nights in the apartment which was perfect. It provided easy access to all parts of Nice, it was large enough to accommodate us all and we found it to be clean and very well equipped. The owner was also very helpful and we hope to return in the future.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Just arrived back from our stay at this apartment. Everything about the booking process was efficient and organised; with clear concise instructions to help make the most of our holiday. We arrived to a bright, clean very spacious apartment which was exactly as described if not better.

The apartment is located a short walk from the main train station and local tram line which enabled us to 'explore' Nice and the rest of the Cote d'Azur very easily. We would have no hesitation in recommending to either families or a group of adults and will definitely book again when we return to The South of France.

winter in Nice

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of seven who stayed in this lovely apartment in Nice for 5 days in early december 2010. The property was very handy to the train station which was great as we came in by train from Paris. The apartment was clean and fresh and was only about a nice 15 minute walk down to the beach. Our party consisted of 3 couples and our 17 yr old son and we were very comfortable in this apartment. Would certainly stay again when back in Nice.

Very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5
We stayed 5 women in the apartment for 3 nights. We took the bus from the airport, it arrives at the main train station which is just a 5 minutes walk from the flat. Very handy and cheap.

The flat was just as described on HomeAway, spacious, airy and very comfortable. A good base for an extended weekend vacation, near shopping and in walking distance to the beach, old town and restaurants. At the same street there was a small grossery and close to that a small bakery which opened early also on Sunday. We ate only breakfast at the apartment and the equipment was more than sufficient for that. All the arrangement before the trip went without any problems.

We had the fortune to have sunny weather on our stay in Nice so the vacation was as close to perfect as it can get. Good food and shopping and a nice apartment to retire to, what more can you ask for.

Right in the centre of Nice, this flat offers guests the chance to explore the Riviera from a spacious, luxurious and well situated base with high quality furnishings. You can easily get to Monaco, Menton and the Italian Riviera within an hour from the train station which is 5 minutes walk away. Equally close is the sea and all the cultural attractions of Nice itself: the Musee Matisse, Musee Chagall and the Opera are all 10 minutes walk away.

I love to get the bus to Beaulieu for the fabulous Ephrussi Rothschild house and garden on St Jean-Cap Ferrat and also the amazing Greek villa Kerylos at Beaulieu.

Cannes is a half hour in the other direction by train. St Paul de Vence has a fabulous art museum and Eze just outside Nice is a wonderful hilltop village with knockout views of the coast - you can get there on the local coach from the Gare routiere. And of course St Tropez is fun.

Why not travel on the Chemin de Fer de Provence inland on the narrow gauge railway up into the Alps? Entrevaux has a medieval fortress approached by a drawbridge and you can ski in the Val D'Allos for the day if you stop at Thoraume -Haute for a coach transfer.

Other Activities: museums, theatre, opera, concerts.

Ski: Skiing is available at four resorts about an hour's drive out of Nice or you can access the resorts by train. The resort are very modern. Previous guests spent a week skiing then came to my flat for New Year, booking at La Petite Maison for New Year's Eve
