This is the ideal location for people who want to get about without a car.

Thick walls, independent air conditioning/heating system in all bedrooms & the lounge, and windows with louvre shutters keep it cool in summer, warm in the winter. A polished wood parquet floor can be found in the lounge, while the bedrooms are tiled with “tomettes” from the XVIII (typical tiles hand-made in Salernes, Provence).

More about Nice: Whether you are a family with children wishing to enjoy relaxing vacations, or a group of night clubbers eager to have fun and entertainment, you will have a chance to enjoy the widest range of holiday options. We offer a fantastic location: The beach is just down the street and you will be able to go for a swim several times a day (sunbathing, swimming, sailing, etc are possible up to October) – There are no night clubs in the street (first ones, 200 m away).
You will be just in the heart of the lively Old Town packed with museums, galleries, restaurants in all price ranges, pubs, shops (from top-name to artisan shops). 1 minute from the best discothèques in town, and 1 minute from the Opera. 5 minutes to Nice centre for world class shopping at the heart of the Riviera. You will feel like in a village, in the heart of the preserved beautiful old Town, with all the comfort and security a modern city can offer (Nice is Frances fifth largest city).
Practice your 'niçois': In case you do not fluently speak “niçois” (the local dialect) do not worry, as most people speak a little English, especially in the old town. To travel around, Nice is an ideal base from which to explore the Cote d'Azur: you can take a boat trip from Nice port to the Lerins islands, St. Tropez, la Corniche d'Or and Monaco. Monaco is 15 mins by train and Cannes is about 40 mins. As we know this area and the surroundings quite well, having lived in Nice for 15 years, we will be happy to help you to discover the area and share our best addresses with you.

Lovely stay at Nice apartment
We very much enjoyed our stay at the apartment in central Nice. The booking was handled professionally by Emma who kindly co-ordinated all the paperwork and details for our stay and all information provided was extremely helpful. On arrival we were greeted with lovely fresh flowers and a bottle of wine and a helpful explanation of all the amenities. Location wise the apartment was ideal for us, very close to the beach, great restaurants, bars and excellent local transport connections. The local shop opposite was also very handy. The apartment was very clean, nicely decorated and retained a lot of the charm of a traditional french apartment. The WiFi connection, local travel books and maps inside the apartment were really useful and helped us plan days out. We had a great time and would love to go back to Nice and would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants a central place to place to explore Nice and the surrounding cities from. Thanks for a lovely stay. Alison & Lak
Wonderfull stay in a beautiful family apartment
We (4 adults, 2 little children) had a very nice stay in this spacious apartment. Although situated on one of the most bussy marketplaces, once windows closed, it becomes quiet. With his two bathrooms you never have a row of moaning people waiting for their turn. The children had enough space to play and where excited about the toys they found in one of the throws. Concerning our arriving; it was as if we came here already for many years. They were very kind and gave us a lot of information, both about the apartment and their rules as well as what we could visit with little children. Everything we asked was answered with a smile. The owner herself invited us one day for a coffee but because of a problem on our side we couldn’t meet her (which was very sorry). If we go back to Nice next year, it will certainly be again in this beautiful apartment.
Wij (4 volwassenen, 2 kleine kinderen) hadden een fantastisch verblijf in dit ruim appartement. Alhoewel gelegen aan één van de drukste marktplaatsen, eens de vensters dicht werd het binnen heel rustig. Door de aanwezigheid van 2 badkamers was er nooit een wachtende rij van ongeduldige mensen. De kinderen hadden genoeg speelruimte en waren heel blij met het aanwezige speelgoed (geschikt tot een leeftijd van 5 jaar alhoewel duploblokken door bijna elk kind gewaardeerd worden). Wat betreft onze aankomst; het was net alsof wij hier al jaren kwamen. De eigenaar was heel vriendelijk en gaf ons alle mogelijke informatie. Wat we ook vroegen, alles werd met een glimlach beantwoord. De eigenaar nodigde ons uit voor een koffietje, maar door een probleem van onze kant kon dit spijtig genoeg niet doorgaan. Indien we besluiten volgend jaar terug naar Nice te gaan zal het zeker weer dit appartement worden.
Fabulous location and big apartment
We were a family of four aged 20-80 years and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It is right in old Nice and only 5 minutes walk to beach. The daily market is around the corner ( 2 min walk) and there is a small supermarket across the road and a hardware store around the corner. Everything was so handy. The tram was two minutes walk away to get to train station. The vibe of old Nice is fantastic and this location is perfect. The apartment was clean, fresh, well maintained, roomy with everything we needed. Emma was very quick to reply to any questions leading up to our arrival and gave us lots of info and tips when we arrived for our stay making our week even easier. There are stairs to get up to the apartment but that is the reality in most of the places we stayed in France and kept us fit.Thoroughly recommend this apartment.
We had a wonderful stay in this very well situated flat. Indeed, it is located in the best area to visit and enjoy Nice (50m from the sea, very nice restaurants). We enjoyed to be in a quiet building. The flat is very well furnished (a lot of dishes and home appliances). We will come back for sure ! Claire
Excellent Apartment for Holiday Stay
This apartment is centrally located in the heart of Old Nice, a short stroll to markets, bakery, shops and beach. The property is very clean and well maintained with adequate kitchen utensils and comfortable beds - ideal for a family holiday. We were a family group of 6 (4 of whom were young adults) and this apartment was perfect for our stay of 2 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period. The owner provided excellent customer service from our initial enquiry about the apartment until we left. Her manager was also extremely helpful at all times. During our stay we lived like locals, visiting the local markets daily. We travelled on short excursions to many of the surrounding cities and villages. We did not have or need a car as public transport in Nice is very cheap (1.50 Euro per trip), regular and reliable. Proximity to the beach for regular walks was a bonus. We would definitely recommend this apartment and look forward to returning.
An excellent apartment in the best location
This is a wonderful apartment very tastefully renovated and equipped with all necessary amenities. The Hostess is extremely friendly and helpful. We have rented many places in Nice, but this one is definitely the best. Thank you Emma for making us feel at home. Lenka and Robert
The Cours Saleya with its famous flower / fruit and vegetable daily market, cafes and restaurants is less than a minutes walk away: it will make your daily life here very easy! On your doorstep you will also find the Baie des Anges (Bay of Angels), with a shingle beach and transparent waters, directly opposite. The Promenade des Anglais - Nice's famous seafront esplanade, 6km long, is a fantastic place for a stroll. You can also hire a bicycle or rollerblade up and down. Nearby there are also some excellent speciality shops, art galleries, designers and museums (Musee Matisse, Musee des Beaux Arts, Musee d'Art Moderne et Contemporain). Other Activities: Museums, gastronomy
