About Nic Beeby
I am English and have connections with Tuscany in Italy. I wanted to have an apartment by the sea where I could go around the coast to Italy or indeed the other way as far as Spain. It is also great to travel up into the mountains behind Nice. I wanted to be able to walk everywhere with all the conveniences of the old town at my fingertips. 100 years ago the high season was in January and February because the climate and the light was so wonderful. I love to be in Nice as I feel rejuvenated!
Nic Beeby purchased this Apartment in 2000

We are a family of 4 ( with 2 teenagers) and loved staying at this apartment. You could not get a more central location than this apartment. Everything you want to do as a tourist is at your door step. We really enjoyed staying at this apartment. The apartment is in the old part of Nice, it is very charming, clean, well kept and very well organized. It is a 5 min walk to the beach. We will definitely stay in this apartment next time We are in Nice. The owner, Nic, was very good in replying to all our questions with great detail and information. Thank you Nic for letting us stay at your place.
It is great to hear that the location of the apartment is so appreciated. It is the main reason why I chose it seventeen years ago! I am also glad that the information I provide is so useful. Do come back soon! Nic
This apartment is situated in the perfect area of Nice. Close to restaurant, train and the sea! The space is quite large and was very clean. The shower in one bedroom is nice and the deep tub in the other bedroom is a wonderful addition to the apartment. Furniture is worn and could use updating. Kitchen is well equipped. I would definitely stay here again.
Perfect location and friendly welcome
The apartment had a relaxed comfort with bright open rooms - the location was perfect for the old town, the beach and for shopping.
Charming apartment. Great location!
After a very early start from Gatwick we arrived at the apartment at 10am to be greeted by Mdme Horel, who is charming and very helpful. The apartment is well equiped and had the neccessary wifi for our two teenagers! The location could not be better; short walk to the beach, the old town, the tram stop and so many good restaurants you will be spoilt for choice. Nic has lots of good guide books and maps in the apartment for which we made good use. A day trip to Monaco is a must but there is plenty to do in Nice as well. We look forward to going back again .
Great to hear all the info provided was useful and you had such a great time. Do come back very soon! Nic
Lovely apartment. Everything you need is there.
perfect location. Madame was very gracious greeting us. Would definitely book again.
It was a pleasure, great to hear how much you liked it and look forward to welcoming you back to Nice soon. Nic
Bright, warm, every detail makes this an awesome place to stay - and it's close to everything!
We had an excellent experience from beginning to end. This apartment is too good to believe - a block from the beach, a market, and every kind of restaurant or shop you could want or need. The views are excellent and the hosts have thought of all of the small details that really make the experience feel homey - from fans to lamps kitchen utensils - we were so pleased. We stayed there with our two teenagers and there was plenty of room for all of us (the pictures are very accurate). We hope to come back and stay here again sometime!
Nice, the Queen of the French Riviera, is at the very heart of life on the spectacular Côte d'Azur.
Founded by the Greeks and colonized by the Romans, Nice's temperate winter climate and verdant subtropical vegetation have been attracting visitors for centuries.
It has a lovely warm and sunny climate, good beaches, interesting museums and galleries as well as an atmospheric street life. The 12 day Carnival in February is an explosion of celebrations culminating in a spectacular firework display.
Nice was Italian until 1861, and the pastel façades and balconies of the Old Town have a distinct Italianate feel. It lies at the eastern end of the Bay des Anges, at the foot of the hill still known as the Chateau for the castle that once stood here.
The Old Town is the most vibrant part of Nice, with its narrow streets, which are packed with boutiques, galleries, artists' studios. Nice's beautiful Opera House is situated here with a varied menu of Opera, Ballet and Classical Concerts.
At the centre of the Old Town is the Cours Salaya, the daily morning market bustling with flowers, fruit and vegetable stalls which make way in the rest of the day to cafés, bars and restaurants.
