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

Apartment, 53 m2, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2-4

Our bright newly renovated apartment is on the second floor of an historic palace or nobleman's grand house. Its high windows with carved lintels look out on to two of the most desirable streets in Nice old town. To one side is the beautiful baroque church of St Rita, with its pretty tiled belfry; opposite is a friendly, quirky, very Nicoise pavement cafe, perfect to sit and watch the world go by. Try the great restaurants on your doorstep or buy fresh market produce, stroll to the 'caves' for excellent, reasonably priced wines - then cook in our large, well stocked kitchen with its hand painted Italian tiles. The bedroom has original tomette tiles and two double beds: one has a beautiful antique carved headboard and the other occupies the mezzanine level. The living room has a large antique mirror, chandelier, swivel armchair and an L-shaped convertible corner sofa. Open the shutters and let the sun shine in on both sides of our lovely Nicoise Apartment.

Step out of the building's ancient doorway (type 'les portes medievales rue benoit bunico' into your browser if you are interested) and you are instantly in the city's historic heart, very much alive with the everyday comings and goings of its inhabitants, cafe culture, open air restaurants and artistic high spots. If you want to feel at the centre of things, lean out of the window and see the life of the old quarter at first hand, this is the place for you. The old town is probably not the place for an early night or for a quiet getaway. Very few people are not captivated by its bohemian charm.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at the apartment! It was a lot larger than they photos imply so plenty of space for 2 adults and one child. Perfectly located just a 2 minute walk from the beach and a few steps from Cours Saleya. The street below can be a bit noisy but with the brand new double paned windows you don't hear a thing. Communication was Carol the owner was excellent. Would stay here again without a second thought!

A wonderful place for a break

  • 5 of 5
This was a typical French apartment. High ceilings, wooden shutters, ancient stone stairs up to the entrance. We were enthralled!!. Inside , however, it was bright, clean well laid out with enough room for the three of us to have our individual space. The beautifully decorated bedroom had a mezzanine area with another double bed ( not much height , but my friend is only 5ft, so was ideal and great for small people or kids. It was quirky and just marvellous .It was right in the old town and a stones throw from the Coeur Soleya and the Promenade. We couldn't have asked for better. There was a bit of noise in the morning but the kind owner had left disposable earplugs and as we are early risers this was not a problem. Plenty bars locally to watch the world go by and the great restaurant Acchiardo just round the corner. The apartment was well stocked with the essentials and all mod cons ( Dish washer, washing machine etc.)The weather was fine for late October and cocktails at Negresco added to our best trip to Nice ever. We would definitely come back to this property. Thanks to Carol(the owner) and Satu who were very helpful.

A wonderful week in a wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of four with two adult children aged 18 and 22. We enjoyed our week in Nice so much and much of that was due to the location and ambiance of this flat. There was plenty of room for us to spread out ( during the rare times we were actually in the flat!) Although this is in the heart of Old Town, with the windows closed at night the noise was not a problem. I would rent this again in a heartbeat, and only hope we get the chance sooner rather than later! One week is not enough to explore all the Cote D'Azure has to offer, and if we have any regret it's that we did not eat as much of the street food as we would have liked!! So we will be back for sure........

Nice is nice!

  • 5 of 5
I can't put down in words how much we enjoyed this apartment and our time in Nice. My husband and two grown children stayed here for four days.
The new kitchen has everything you could want and we really appreciated the washing machine and even hanging our clothes to dry out of the window.
We found the local transportation by bus to be very convenient and easy to figure out times and locations.
Both Carol and Margit were very helpful with anything we needed.
The apartment is noisy at night but with earplugs it was fine and it wouldn't stop us from staying here again. We enjoyed the bustling streets below us.
This apartment was very clean and bright and the sheets were so luxurious to crawl into every night. They even have beach mats to use.
We couldn't have been happier.

Excellent apartment with everything you could need

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this apartment for a week with my partner. It was perfect, the agent was extremely helpful and went out of her way to make sure you knew how things worked and that we had what we needed. The owner was easy to deal with an responsive. The apartment is large, contains everything you need even beach mats and towels and honestly it's just beautiful- it's so well located I was so happy I picked this place in particular - the stay there made my European trip. I loved the original features and the modern conveniences and am intending to visit again later in the year. Seriously this place was a standout in terms of accommodation. If only other places in France were this good!

Be close to everything and soak up the atmosphere

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for our third stay in your wonderful apartment at the end of October. We had a wonderful time as always. Glorious weather abounded, and we relaxed immediately we reached your home from home apartment, knowing everything was on our doorstep.

Your apartment couldn't really be better equipped or located. Comfy beds, all mod cons and a good shower. 2 minutes to the beach, 2 minutes to the Cours Saleya and the markets, 1 minute to the artisan bakery, cheese shop and the best ice cream store with hundreds of amazing flavours - yummy.

Highlights this time were a night of live music in Shapko and relaxing with cheese and bubbles in the apartment while listening to life outside the window.

We still haven’t made it to Monaco, so will definitely be back! Thanks again.

Our charming apartment is situated on the corner of rue Benoit Bunico and rue de la Prefecture, a few minutes walk from the famous Cours Saleya and its fruit and flower market, where the wide sweep of the Baie des Anges is visible through the arches of the old town walls. You are surrounded by bustling restaurants, pavement cafes, museums, art galleries, theatres, jazz bars, magnificent baroque churches and winding lanes lined with little shops selling delicious Nicoise specialities and artisan wares. Next to the old town, the beach is free and the sea just as blue but further along the Promenade des Anglais are the grand hotel beaches where you can sunbathe in style with waiter service. Trams and buses are closeby, and for 1 Euro you can travel to medieval hilltop villages, such as St Paul de Vence and Eze, or visit Antibes,Cannes, Monaco. By train you can quickly be in Italy. Ferries from nearby Nice Port take you along the Mediterranean coast to St Tropez or across to Corsica.

Ski: A number of resorts are accessible from Nice by car, train and bus. A dedicated ski bus makes it easy to reach resorts such as Auron, Valberg and Isola 2000 (approx. one and a half hours).
