About the property

1 bedroom, 1 lounge/kitchen, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

This 1 bed apartment is in a fantastic position for exploring Nice. It is situated very close to the Old Town and Beach ( 5 min walk) . The new tram and Place Massena are only a 2 mins stroll away. The apartment has had a new kitchen and bathroom as well as newly painted throughout with a new solid oak floor. It is surrounded by bars, shops, restaurants, even the building itself sits on top of a patisserie (bread and cake shop).

The apartment itself although situated in the middle of everything is located at the back of the building so is reasonably quiet (for a city!). Unusually for accommodation of this size the apartment has a separate bedroom equipped with a large double bed with French doors opening up onto the sunny south facing balcony. There is a separate lounge/kitchen with French doors opening up onto the south facing balcony/terrace.

The apartment offers air conditioning and heating, flat screen TV with UK FreeView TV, Wifi broadband internet, IPOD dock and DVD player and DVDs. The balcony is also equipped with a table and chairs for dining 'alfresco'.

About Kieron Ainge

I live close to Manchester in the UK and am married with two young children (Henry and William). When I have time I like to cycle regularly and I'm hoping one day to take my bike to Nice to ride the amazing surrounding coastline and countryside.

Perfect location and everything you need for a short break

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment. Central location, walking distance to the restaurants, shops, beach, port and train station.

Clean and bright apartment.

Quiet in the apartment as it backs onto a quiet back street.

We have a 15 month old, so carrying him up 4 flights of stairs in a pushchair was challenging but we managed and it wouldn't put me off visiting again.

Kieron was very helpful and communication was great.

Recommend getting the train to villefranche for a finer shingle beach. We also caught the train to Beaulieu Sur Mer and then walked along the coastline to Villefranche. Lovely scenery and fun to explore.

Would definitely recommend.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect apartment for a 3-day stay on my own in Nice. Very clean with comfortable furniture/bed. I slept well with little little street noise and enjoyed the air con in the warmer evenings. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend it to others.

Very convenient ,well equipped and maintained apt. Ideal for 2 people.

  • 4 of 5

The apt was very bright and airy. it was well equipped with everything needed for our 6 day stay (including cleaning products, basic food items and toiletries). Although it was on the 4th floor we soon got used to climbing the stairs and quickly learned not to forget anything when going out. The apt was very well cleaned when we arrived with nice towels and bed linen supplied. We were met by a representative when we arrived at the apt who gave us a tour of the apt and all information we needed about it. She also told us anything we needed to know about Nice and even had a city map for us. We enjoyed our stay in Nice and would recommend the apt to others.

Lovely modern, bright, clean, comfortable well-located apartment ...

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks in January 2016. I stay in Nice quite often and have rented many apartments. This one is bright (South facing windows), clean, modern (it appears to have been renovated quite recently to an excellent standard), comfortable (the double bed particularly) and well-kitted out (pretty well everything you need is there). It is also very well-located (near to Place Massena and convenient for travel, shops, the old town, and beaches). The owner's description is totally accurate and there was good communication and efficient arrangements for my stay. My inability to operate the TV was quickly and helpfully sorted by the owner's local representative. There was a usual charge for cleaning at the end of my stay which is identified in the booking confirmation. As the property description notes (on the fourth floor with no lift) it is not suitable for the less mobile. In my view a great apartment offering excellent value for money, I would definitely stay there again.
