Overview

Nice Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom [WC], sleeps 4 max.

You’ll fall head over heels for Nice! The city boasts sparkling beaches, sunlit streets, ocean breezes, and a temperate climate year round. Unfortunately, the vacation rentals here tend to lack the elegance and whimsy of the rest of the town. We know—we stayed in several before buying our own penthouse apartment, Le Tresor de Nice.

Our experience with the accommodations in Nice spurred us to create a vacation rental experience that consistently surpasses our guests’ expectations. We spent months renovating Le Tresor de Nice before opening it to be shared with others, and it features all the personal touches you would expect from a treasured family home.

Two terraces and several large windows showcase the shimmering Mediterranean, the sun-washed architecture of Nice, and the gentle slope of the mountains. One terrace includes a four-seat dining table and lounge chairs for sipping wine under the moon, while the stars and city lights merge into one glittering panorama.

Marble floors pave the way into Le Tresor de Nice, which is reached by elevator and laid out into an open floor plan with a large living room, one bedroom, and one and a half baths.

A brand new, fully stocked kitchen with fittings and furnishings from Italy, stainless steel appliances, and granite counters is the perfect setting for preparing gourmet meals in the country that invented gourmet. A small supermarket for gathering fresh ingredients is located just down the way, along with a boulangerie, where you can induldge in a fresh croissant or buy a loaf of bread for later.

When its time to present your enchanting meal, a glass-top dining table, lit by an elegant chandelier, has room for six. You can also light a few candles and dine on the terrace in the balmy Mediterranean air.

The kitchen also has breakfast bar—an ideal place to settle in with an espresso from our Nespresso machine and catch up on emails (freeWi-Fi is provided). Or, if you’d rather work with a view, Le Tresor de Nice provides an office area in front of a large window overlooking the bay, which bustles with ships, boats, paragliders and planes descending to the nearby airport. This dreamlike view will be the only impediment to your productivity: a printer, scanner, and plenty of desk space for your laptop are included.

Luxury linens enfold a queen-sized bed in the bedroom—a wonderful place to rest after a full day of exploring. A second terrace with bay views is accessed from the bedroom. Here, for a romantic moment, you’ll find two chairs and a table with just enough space to rest a pair of wine glasses.

The bathroom includes a rainfall showerhead, vanity mirror, and spacious marble countertops for all of your cosmetics and beauty products. A half-bath with sink and WC is located just off the foyer. There’s also a sofa that converts to a bed in the living area, which will accommodate two extra guests.

The beach is a ten-minute walk from Le Tresor de Nice (15 to 20 minutes on the way back) or a five minute bus ride. We recommend some form of vehicle transportation so you can motor along the coast or into the mountains. A vehicle will also make it easier to reach the plethora of cafes and restaurants in Nice’s city square or Old Town. An electric car rental service—8€/hour with a one hour minimum—can be found just downstairs.

Prefer not to drive? There are several options for public transportation. Take the convenient bus service to Gare de Nice Ville, where you can take a train along the scenic coastline to Marseille or Italy.

Another perk—two of our friends in the building, French-Canadians who speak both English and French, are available to meet and greet guests, answer questions and assist in emergencies

It’s always a great time to visit, and our luxury vacation rental ensures your stay in Nice will be twice as nice. Get in touch today to book your getaway!

About Ralph & Karen Moorhouse

We are committed francophiles and after spending many years getting to know Paris, renovating an apartment there [224052] we started coming to the Côte d'Azure, looked for an apartment & knew that this was it when we walked into the living room and saw the view. Another renovation followed to a higher standard than the typical Nice offering - its a place we would live in full time....maybe some day!!

Ralph & Karen Moorhouse purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ralph & Karen Moorhouse chose Nice

The view! Sitting on the balcony with a cool glass of Rosé enjoying the view, the sun and cooling breeze is magic. This is the enduring feedback we get from guests and why we spend more time here than in Paris [ID 224052]

What makes this apartment unique

We have 2 wonderful on-site staff, who have become good friends, to welcome you and help you settle in. A convenient bus will take you to the SNCF station, for travel along the coast, or hop off en-route to pick up another bus into the center of the town. Local supermarket & bakery will supply you basic needs to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on the balcony.

Great appartment, very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to thank you for letting us stay in your nice apartment, which we really enjoyed very much. On our first day we walked from the apartment all the way down to the old village which we really enjoyed. It was a very nice walk and not at all boring. For the way back we took the bus which brought us conveniently almost back to the entrance of the building of the apartment. The concerns about the pull-out sofa turned out to be not justified since it didn't bother the kids. According to them it was the best pull-out sofa they ever slept on. Maybe, the fact that we walked quite a lot every day supported their positive sleeping experience. Overall apart from having had too few days we really enjoyed our stay and even the weather was not too bad. It just could have been a little warmer but that's how it is if you travel early in the year. Nevertheless, despite the temperature some people were even brave enough to go swimming. Also the Security deposit was credited before we returned home. The quickest refund we ever experienced. Certainly, a place we will try to stay again when we return to Nice. Thanks for everything.

Beautifully Appointed Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time in Nice and really enjoyed your beautiful apartment. Jean and Marlene were fantastic and super helpful in showing us all the in's and out's as well as cluing us into the area.

Your views of Nice and the Cote d' Azure are stunning and made sitting on the balcony a wonderful experience day or night.

Denise and I are already talking of visiting Paris and will be certain seek you out when we do.

Thanks for everything and it has been our pleasure to get to know you and how comfortable you've made our experience.

(If you have an opportunity you have to try Gorbio - it's a fantastic drive into the mountains and a terrific dining experience)!!

Owner's Response: T&D: thanks for the kind feedback. Its always satisfying to hear our guests really enjoyed the apartment, the view and the area. We have not been to Gorbio and having googled it, we can't wait to visit - even possible by train & bus!!!. The hill towns along the coast are amazing, like Eze or St Paul de Vence [easily reached by bus from the apartment] and have charming buildings, streets, food and views. We will pass on your thanks to Jean & Marlene, who do their best to make thing easy for our guests. Hope to see you againe and many thanks for these comments

perfect holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week in this apartment, it is everything as shown on the pictures and more . Ralph and Karen are very organized, every detail was taken care of. From the beginning, Ralph would send us information on places to visit and restaurants. We especially appreciated the cleanliness of this apartment. The best part of this apartment was the view from balcony... we took advantage of this view every morning and evenings for our meals. I highly recommend this place, and hope to one day visit Nice again. Thanks to Ralph and a special thanks to Jean for all of the information.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time. It really is quite special sitting on the balcony for a meal or glass of wine & enjoying the view. We do try ensure the apartment is as described and provide guests with lots of info on things to do, places to go and how to get there often by public transport [very good bus & train services s along the coast into Italy]. On on site managers Jean and Marlene are a great asset and so helpful to guests. Hope to see you again in Nice or Paris. Thanks for your review and for staying with us.

Apartment in Nice

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the apartment. When we first arrived we thought it was too small but after a couple of days it was just the right size. The view is fantastic. A couple of nights we cooked dinner ate on the balcony, enjoyed the view and each other. I would highly recommend this apartment to any couple going to Nice.

The owners have a couple that looks after their apartment for them. The couple lives in the same complex. Jean met us when we arrived and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment. I asked him if he was free one day if he would show us some famous sites and I would pay him for it. He couldn't have been more accommodating. We had a wonderful tour with him.

Owner's Response: John & Lois: Thanks for your kind review. One of our favorite things when we visit Nice is lunch or dinner on the balcony - glad you were able to enjoy this. Interesting that you mentioned the size of the apartment. Compared to . N. American homes this may at 1st seem small but the reality is very spacious and comfortable even for a prolonged stay of several months. Jean & Marlene are gems and we are very lucky to have them looking after our place. Jean doesn't usually do guided tours, but was very generous with his day to take you around - he said it was fun! Come back to Nice or Paris [#224052]

Beautiful, relaxing Riviera Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in your apartment. I can't really think of anything the apartment itself was missing. The 'user guide' was extremely helpful. We took the bus route you listed to Eze, the train to Cannes and Antibes, and a boat to Monaco. The boat left from Le Port and was a great way to spend a day.

I wish it were closer to downtown and not on a hill, but that did not impact the great week we had. We learned that a taxi from Hotel Negrescu to the condo was 20 Euro and that was perfect.

Owner's Response: Maureen: thank you for your kind comments. We are very luck to have Marlène & Jean help with our apartment - they are right there [same block] when you need help or advice. They are a great resource for guests and have become good friends. Hope you can come back to Nice or perhaps out place in Paris.
