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

Clean, Spacious and very central Nice appartment

  • 5 of 5

Great communication throughout including a few queries whilst we were there. Clean and central location, exceptionally close to everything and overlooking Place de Massena on the edge of the old town. An exciting and loud place to be for Bastille day and France winning the World Cup! An amazing atmosphere. Used Tram, Train and buses with ease, exceptionally easy to get from the airport and would recommend a cycle tour of Nice also. Great WiFi for teenagers and Madame Horrel who looks after the appartment out there is delightful - would recommend.

Great space, lovely light, excellent position, well equipped kitchen & living area

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the position & ambience of this light & airy apartment in Nice / Old Nice. Excellent access with a small lift & a very helpful contact person on site ( although communication was sometimes a little challenging due to language differences, but always with a smile & a laugh!)

We felt safe & secure but very much a part of the action down on the street with the window view overlooking Place Massena & through to the sea on the other side. The apartment ticked all our boxes & felt like a home away from home A wonderful host who was easy to contact re arrival instructions & made sure our stay was excellent. Our only negative is that the furniture could do with a little updating, but was comfortable & relaxing. Comfy bed too ! Thanks Nic.

Fantastic location, homely and well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

Owner Nic is very accommodating, due to evening flights we had a very late arrival and since no one was arriving the day we left, Nic offered to let us stay in the apartment until evening. We really appreciated this since our flight out wasn’t until 10pm. The apartment is in a central location, was comfortable and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.

Perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Charming apartment. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

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 .

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.
