Beautiful, light & airy, high-ceiling 3 room apartment in the charming and historic Old Town of Nice, France. Unlike many old town apartments which are quite dark due to narrow pedestrian alleys, tall French windows and 2nd floor location provide for light. Parquet floors, well-equipped kitchen, well-lighted bathroom. The apartment is decorated in modern clean design with original art work.
Two minute walk to the famous Saleya Market (daily markets flowers, antiques, fruits and vegetables, spices), restaurants, cafés, bakeries, pubs, shops, Promenande des Anglais, beach. On the way to the Saleya market you will pass through the Place de Palais de Justice, a large sunny square with fountain and lined with cafés.
The neighborhood: The apartment is a 5 minute walk (or 1 tram stop) to Place Massena and the Galleries Lafayette department store on Jean Medecin, a central shopping and transportation axis leading to main train station. In the other direction, you can walk to Place Garibaldi, the Art Museum or Old Port in less than 10 minutes.
Nice is second to Paris in number of museums in France. There is much to do and see within the city, including the Musée Matisse, Musée Chagall and many others.
Côte d'Azur: One can easily explore the Coôe d'Azur by train or bus all the way to Italy in one direction, Marseille in the other. The train station is a few tram stops (ca 10 minutes) from the apartment. Nearest Tram Stop: Opera / Vielle Ville. A car is absolutely not necessary!

About Janine Hudson
I am an artist and teacher. I live in Zurich but am originally from Florida. I hope to move to Nice one day! When in Nice, I love just being in the old town, enjoying local cuisine, lingering in cafés, strolling over to Place Garibaldi and then taking the street which runs along the hill to the old port. There are many interesting shops along that way, with antiques, baskets, other stuff. Right at Garibaldi is MAMAC, the modern art museum, which I take a turn through every trip. It is also worth taking a bus up to Cimiez to visit the Chagall Museum and then still further up to the Matisse Museum which adjoins an archaeological site and museum , and lovely gardens with view over the city! There is an antique and knick knack market every Monday at Cours Saleya which is just two minutes away. Also a huge flea / antique market at Place Garibaldi one saturday per month. Just off Cours Saleya is an exhibition space for architecture, run by the city - and the building it's in is worth noticing in itself! And of course, there is the sea, three minutes across the Place de Palais and under the arches.
Janine Hudson purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Janine Hudson chose Nice
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida, have lived in Zurich for many years. Here, I miss the proximity to the sea. Nice is for me, a way of returning to my roots, without having to go so far. Perhaps it is my French version of Miami Beach plus longer history, rich art history, beautiful weather, great architecture, great food. I visited Nice first in 2000, returned in 2005 and then in 2010 to look for an apartment. Many of the apartments were renovated and chopped up older buildings, loft beds inserted which created rooms with low ceilings. When I entered this apartment, I breathed a deep sigh of relief, and fell instantly in love. The ceilings are high, the windows are tall and the location is great!
What makes this Apartment unique
light and airy, very close to beach, good connections to everywhere in Nice and French Riviera.

Charming apartment in old town near beach
We loved this charming apartment and my kids and I were sad to say goodbye to it! It was perfect for our family and had everything we needed - a cozy living space and separated bedrooms, and a well-stocked kitchen and utility area. The huge light-filled windows looked down onto the bustling pedestrianized alleys below, full of stores and restaurants. We loved the sound of the church bells and the hustle and bustle of daily life and the close proximity to the beach, parks, the old and new town. Could not have had a more central location for everything we wanted to do, including getting buses out of town to places along the Côte d'Azur. It was a great place and Janine and her local managers were all helpful and quickly got us settled. Only caveat is staircase of 3 floors for those that can't manage - not an issue at all for us... And made for a great view down to street below. Definitely recommend this warm and sweet place.
thank you, heidi!
A very nice stay
Property was exactly as described with helpful notes dotted around the place. Fantastic location right on the edge of the old town, the only downside of which was a bit of street noise. Comfy night's sleep had by all and would certainly stay again. Many thanks to Janine for being super organised for our stay.
Great location and apartment.
We had five people in the apartment so it was tight but well worth it. The location is amazing, close to restaurants, sites, and the coastline. Janine was always responsive and helpful. Great stay!
Great location, great apartment
We had a great visit to Nice this recent summer. We had 5 adults in the apartment and although a little tight squeeze with that many adults, we had a great time! The apartment was clean, tidy, had everything you needed. Beds were comfy, and plenty of fans for the hot Nice sun! The bathroom facilities were great, a great opportunity to catch up on washing whilst travelling around France for 3 weeks.
Janine was great, everything was organised and worked well. Efficiently returned deposit too.
When back in Nice, I will definitely book again!
Thanks very much!
Janine's holiday apartment in Nice is very sweet and so centrally located. It's situated in the old town with lots of great restaurants nearby. Tram stop, airport bus and the beach are almost right next door! Me and my friend manged to visit Cannes, Monaco, Antibes and St Tropez during our stay. We had a wonderful time staying and thank you very much!
wonderful apartment close to the beach
Imagine a charming apartment in the historical centre of Nice where you can be a few steps from wonderful dining options, yet only minutes from the beaches and the excitement that they offer. I took a couple of summer classes at the Nice law school and it was a nice 25-30 minute walk each direction to the campus. It isn't often that you happen across a clean, tastefully renovated apartment in a historical building that is at the center of the excitement and it is even rarer when the unit is an affordable alternative to spartan hotels or overpriced beachfront units. We spent a month in landlord's lovely apartment and it was a wonderful holiday for us. The location was central to everything - we walked pretty much everywhere, but there were also bus and tram stops quite close. There are a ton of merchants operating on the streets of Old Nice, but there were also several groceries within a few minute walk. The unit was well-furnished with a bed in the bedroom, a fold out bed in the front room, and a futon in the sitting room. The kitchen was well-stocked for us to prepare gourmet meals at home, but we still ended up checking out the many culinary options in the neighborhood. The apartment included a nice high speed internet which was useful for planning weekend excursions and taking care of business. The boulangerie located right outside the building was delicious, there are several glace shops nearby (Fenocchio is recommended), and there are culinary tastes to suit any budget and any preference (avoid the church square though - overpriced and pretty bad food). Our favorite nearby dinner spot was Casa Mia - look out the sitting room window and you can't miss it. Landlord was extremely helpful and very friendly over the course of our stay, the time leading up to it, and long after we left.
For those with a car, we found parking in garages nearby and also parked at the airport long-term lot and took the bus to/from the apartment.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends/relatives.
