Or by the Boulevard J. Jaures, for a faster walk, where, tram, buses, including the 20 minutes airport bus, parking are located,

Also allowing a fast exit to the city to visit around,

Furthermore, just crossing the street, the new relaxing Garden/Promenade du Paillon or Coulée Verte (pedestrian green flow), adds an incredible asset to the apartment.

Why Nice? After 6 years in Paris and 16 years in New York City, I chose to relocate to the French Riviera, full of happy child’s memories beauties and sun! I felt Nice called “Nice la belle” (the beautiful), perfect, as it is at the same time a village, where the loft is located in the Old Nice, a city with an interesting cultural life, and by the beautiful blue Mediterranean Sea and the best climate in France, the light and nature superb and the typical places to visit numerous. The public transportation is great and a car is really also optional.

A precious find in Nice !!

  • 5 of 5
I had the opportunity to rent this apartment recently, from april 24 to 29, 2013, and am still feeling the charm of my wonderful stay. Whenever I travel and intend to stay for several days at my destination, I rent an apartment and I must say that this rental was one of my nicest experiences ever.

Impeccably clean, tastefully decorated and extremely convenient from every standpoint. It couldn't be better situated. While it is located in the Old Town, it is on a quiet side street yet set in the heart of all of the lively atmosphere that people expect to find during a vacation in Nice. Furthermore, I returned "home" late practically every night from nearby entertainment and always felt safe. It's location in the Old Town makes it easily accessible via two different tram stops, and there is practically nothing that can't be reached a short stroll away: Place Garibaldi, the sea and beaches, the newest parts of the town, the port, wonderful food markets and antique shops, bakeries, grocery stores, great gourmet food shops, restaurants, cafes, public transportation to museums, Monaco, Menton, Cannes, Italy and more. Although the transportation system is great in Nice to visit around by train and buses, on my next visit I may rent a car for a few days seeing that there is a paid parking garage right across the street.

The accommodation perfectly matched the description and pictures posted on the site, and it was even more attractive "in person". The owner has clearly designed everything to ensure comfort and convenience for her guests, including detailed instructions concerning the apartment and handy tips for visitors.The booking process was very straightforward, and the informative e-mails from the owner made my arrival and welcome at the apartment very easy. The airport bus stop is just across street.

I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone wishing to make the most of a stay in Nice, and I will surely return here on my next visit to the Côte d'Azur.

Highly recommend this apartment in Nice

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I love the south of France and were really thrilled to discover the Zen Om apartment for our most recent visit (thanks to the recommendation of friends who had stayed there last year). We definitely want to go back!
We were in the heart of Nice for 12 days and feel lucky to have found such a charming and well appointed apartment in such a great location and at such a great price. It's bright, nicely furnished, well-equipped and really just right for two people.
The apartment is located at the beginning of a small, bright pedestrian street (it's called a "ruelle" in French) right near a pedestrian square. It's very calm and charming and yet is walking to distance to everything that Nice has to offer -- traditional markets, great restaurants, small cafes, bakeries as well as all the major attractions -- really everything you can imagine. Nice itself has such a great transportation system -- with trams, buses, taxis, trains, tour buses, etc., right near the apartment -- that we didn't even bother to rent a car and were still able to get to Monaco, St. Paul de Vence, Antibes and other places we've always loved.
The apartment is owned by Francoise who is a French woman who has lived in the U.S. where she worked as a French language teacher. She greets all of her guests in person and offers a French language session as a welcoming gift -- which we took her up on and found to be really helpful several times during our stay;. She also provides her guests with her own tour book that she's put together that has lots of great suggestions and tips. There's an apartment manual too just in case (we didn't have to use it).
Bottom line -- we can't wait to come back and recommend the Zen Om apartment to any couple visiting the south of France.

Excellent in all respects

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is perfectly located for a visit to Nice. It is in the old town with access to all forms of public transport and close to walk to most sites. The apartment is well equipped and more importantly it is neat, clean and bright. There is care taken to make the visitor comfortable and Françoise takes a lot of time to orient the visitor to Nice and provides a wealth of materials about the city and region. The listing was accurate and I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable it is. Nice is a wonderful city to visit and our stay was enhanced by this lovely apartment and the excellent service we received. We would go back there to stay again and recommend it without any reservation to anyone wishing to visit Nice. It definitely rates 5 stars!

Loved this apartment in Old Nice.

  • 5 of 5
Just had a wonderful vacation in the lovely city of Nice. Staying at the Zen Om apartment was part of a great experience as was meeting the owner, Françoise. Booking the apartment was easy as I received as a response within a few hours. All pertinent information was provided in a very clear manner and the apartment was exactly as described. Upon arrival, we were met by Françoise at the apartment. She showed us how to work everything in the apartment and even had complete binders with the instruction manuals for every appliance and helpful information about Nice. The bed was very comfortable, very important to me as I suffer from back pain. The apartment had everything needed, was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The location right in Old Nice was amazing, a beautiful old part of city with historic buildings, winding streets, stunning churches, great market, boutiques, cafes, restaurants. Although the old town is full of action every night, everything quiet downs at a reasonable hour. If it happens to be a bit noisy, the apartment is equipped with an air conditioner - shut the windows and turn it on if you prefer silence. Françoise gave us great information about Nice and provided advice, maps and brochures. There was so much to do, one week was way too short. Great museums and parks, the beach a short walk away, walking on the Promenade, taking the 'Train des Pignes' to a medieval town in the Alpes Maritimes with great hiking, visiting neighboring towns. There is something for everyone and of course great food and wine. I will definitely return to Nice and will stay in this perfect apartment.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in July, and enjoyed very much our stay in this charming apartment, well and very nicely equipped and extremely clean, in a fantastic location. We felt like in a village, not a city.The living room is well furnished and bright, overlooking the small pedestrian quiet street, and the sky, with the sounds of the birds and discreet church’s bell, very romantic and relaxing indeed.The air conditioning is very appreciable although we didn’t use it all the time.The small kitchen is well equipped, and the bathroom. The bedroom area is quiet as well, we slept very well in the bed made of a wooden frame and soft mattress. We appreciated to find on our arrival, some tea and coffee, fresh water, beach umbrella, some toilet paper, and the cleaning products. Basically the photos and description of the site are absolutely faithful to the reality.

Also the area is probably the best to stay in Old Nice! It is quiet compare to the others parts that are often busy, specially during summer. The apartment is surrounded by landmarks, markets, gourmet shops, bakeries, cafes and restaurants, everything in fact. At few minutes nice walk from the sea, and just crossing the street this beautiful park with water fountains, where we liked to go. The transportations are just crossing the street, we could go everywhere very easily. The owner welcome us very nicely, and gave us precious touristic information. She made books on tourist infos including transportation schedules, and on the apartment, and plenty of guidebooks are available. We’ll be back! and highly recommended the apartment at all levels!

Notes:
Special welcome: I offer 30 minutes optional French language practice, free of charge. Sort of a gift “to go”. I'm an experienced French language teacher, native French with also American nationality. And, if you wish to study or improve your skills during your holiday, I propose special rates for my guests, or for Bilingual assistance. Teaching site: http://francoiseduffau.com For the check-in and check-out, I like to be present to welcome my guests and introduce the apartment, Nice and areas. I’ve designed Zen Om book including tourist tips, suggestions, and practical infos. And the Apartment’s Manual in French and English languages to answer potential questions. Maps, guides and brochures on Nice and areas are also available for consultation. Zen Om is cosy, very tidy and clean. The linen is scrupulously changed. You will feel immersed in a lively (quiet apartment), authentic and strategic area in Old Nice surrounded by landmarks, sea, and Parks. With various paths to the flat.
