Why Jan and Andrew chose Nice

We chose this property mostly for the large terrace and wonderful view. However it also has generously proportioned rooms, has easy and direct transport links to and from the airport and rail station, and is near the town centre. An excellent holiday location.

What makes this apartment unique

Sunny top floor terrace and panoramic open view. Spacious apartment with original Art Deco features.

Dream retirement vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a fantastic week in Nice at Andrew and Jan's lovely apartment! Great location for walking the city. The apartment was very well equipped, including condiments in the kitchen! Lovely evenings on the balcony with wine, cheese, and the setting sun! Great communication with the owners and Pat (who checked us in and out)! Highly recommend this listing! Cathy and Tom

Absolutely wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed in the apartment for 4 nights. We should have known right from the very first contact we had with the owner, Andrew, what a wonderful apartment this would be. It is spacious, airy, comfortable and beautiful. Andrew is a knowledgeable, thoughtful host, and Pat, his manager, was extremely punctual and helpful, The bottle of wine and cheese were lovely to enjoy on our first night.

But our favourite, by far, was the lovely terrace. The view, especially at night, was amazing. We were able to enjoy our breakfast every morning at the table on the terrace, and watch Nice come to life. The neighbourhood is quiet, easily within walking distance of Old Town, the Promenade des Anglais, and many bakeries and (heaven help me) chocolate shops.

A note for first time travellers to Nice - bring water shoes for the beach - it is rock (not pebbles - rocks).

We took advantage of the lunch specials (3 courses from between $16 - 30 euros) and had light dinners - there are so many lovely cheese shops, bakeries and places to buy wine, and even a few fresh pasta shops in Old Town. There are two very good grocery stores close by - Casino for daily fare, and another one closer the Promenade that has better fruit. And if you like figs - there are a few small shops that sell them on the sidewalk - so wonderful. And the apartment is fully stocked with anything and everything you need to prepare and host a dinner.

We even had pizza from a local "pizza truck" up the street that actually makes wonderful thin crust pizza. (my husband forgot our cheese at a store on the way home from Old Town - which we retrieved the next day, as the store owner put it in his fridge in case we came back for it. Such wonderful people)

I have been staying in VRBO homes for 8 years, and this apartment is by far one of the nicest I have stayed at. It is so comforting to stay in a home that has everything you need on a day to day basis - even a REAL teapot!

I could go on forever writing about this apartment - you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful stay in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 5 friends in August. From the moment we booked we were impressed with the professional service from the owner and the manager who was very also very helpful.

The apartment is beautifully furnished and fully equipped. The air con and shutters to all rooms keep it cool during the day and the terrace gets sun from early afternoon till sunset.

Even with 6 people staying, the apartment had everything we needed.

Location to the beach, train station (we visited Monaco which was only a 20 minute journey and €6 return!), supermarket and old town is great, nothing too far away.

Any questions we had, Pat responded efficiently. Our deposit was returned quickly at the end of our stay too.

Have already recommended to friends and family and I will certainly be booking to come back.

Lovely property, great location, excellent service

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment in a great location, short walk to supermarkets, restaurants and beaches. We were met by the manager on arrival and given loads of useful information (she also left us cheese and wine, which was a nice touch). The apartment itself is beautifully furnished with a balcony and a great view. Everything you might need in terms of appliances, kitchen etc was there. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that while we were there the lift (traditional French one) only worked intermittently and the apartment is on the 6th floor, so a bit of an effort with shopping. Would definitely recommend it to others and would go back again for a longer stay

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

A spacious apartment in a nice neighbourhood situated just 10 min walk from the Promenade des Anglais and 15 min walk from the train station. Nice furnitured with a fully equipped kitchen, it even had a dish washer! The balcony was great with lot of space for six persons and a fantastic view from the sixth floor. The arrangements with Pat (local manager) meeting up and explaining everything worked just fine. The refundable deposit was also paid back after a few days.

I definitely recommend this apartment!

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment on 6th floor stayed as a group of 4 ladies for 5 days. It was centrally train station 15 mins walk away, 10 mins to seafront and plenty of supermarkets, just around the corner, around 15 mins walk into the centre, but old town is a bit further. Nice public park nearby which was a great landmark to find our bearings. Outside balcony was great as it got sun in the afternoon into the early evening, all furniture and fittings were excellent, beds comfortable 2 doubles plus 2 small single beds in 3rd bedroom, everything was clean and tidy and little touches especially the supplies Pat the Meet and Manager left on our arrival. Even umbrellas, and beach towels supplied. Pat explained everything and even organised our taxi back to the airport. Also on hand if you needed anything. Lots of cooking pots and utensils in kitchen if you want to eat in. We breakfasted in every morning and balcony was lovely for glass of vino or coffee and a pastry late afternoon/early evening. Plenty of maps and info in apartment and the response rate from owner was 100%. Refundable deposit returned promptly. We travelled to Cannes and Antibes (definitely go there), Ville de Franche all of which were easy to get to by train. We hope to return to NICE as we didn't manage to get to do all we wanted. So much to see, so many shops, so many restaurants. What more can you ask for. Would recommend.

The apartment is situated in the centre of Nice in one of the prime residential areas, away from the heavy traffic of the Promenade & other major routes, but still within easy walking distance of the beach & town centre. It is 7 mins walk to the beach and 13 mins to Place Magenta (the pedestrian centre of Nice). The old town, atmospheric, bustling by day and noisy by night, is a 25 minute stroll along the Promenade. Built by the English in Victorian times the wide Promenade with its palm trees is the most impressive on the Riveria.

Just around the corner from the apartment you will find all the shops you require for your daily needs, as well as the pretty, 100 year old Jardins Alsace Lorraine. Buses from there will take you anywhere - direct to the airport, rail station or central Nice, or from the Promenade you can go to Cannes, Antibes and many other outlying villages. Bus travel is cheap; a 1.5 Euro fare is valid for most journeys up to 74 minutes including changes. (Buying a 10 journey ticket reduces the cost per journey to 1 Euro)
