About Katja Flann

We both love Nice as we have spend lots of time there in our early 20s - Katja used to live in Nice after leaving school and Simon spend lots of time in Nice during his travels.

We wanted to have a place in Nice to come back to for family holidays - and when we saw this property we fell in love with it.

Katja Flann purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Katja Flann chose Vieille Ville

The location is ideal (it doesn't get more central than this) it's only a stone throw from the beach, the market and the huzzle and buzzle of the Old Town. It's an instant holiday feeling.

Since Nice airport is very well connected with flights from and to Europe, it's very easy to get to. The easy access from the airport to the flat is also very handy, especially for short weekend getaways.

What makes this apartment unique

If you love the sea, sun, a bit of the French Savoir Vivre and the Riviera holiday feeling then this flat is ideal for you - it's all on your door step. Even winter is a good time to visit and to stay in the flat as the weather is mild in Nice and surroundings towns - Monaco is only a 20min bus ride away from the flat. Winter sun anyone?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick thank you for the use of Balcon Rossetti last week. We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment had everything we needed and was in the perfect location.

Sunny and bright apartment in the heart of Old Town Nice

Great flat, great location.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I have just returned after spending a wonderful week in the heart of Old Nice Town. This flat is perfect! A pleasant bus ride from the airport. Couldn't have asked for a better location. Walking distance to everything you need. Shops, bars, restaurants the lovely market and of course the beach,

The flat itself offered bright, comfortable, open plan living with a great balcony which was ideal for people watching and a glass of wine as well as an early coffee.

As it is so central this would not be ideal for anyone looking for a quiet location. For us it was perfect.

Thank you to both Kaja and Sarah for their help.

Great apartment, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is pefectly located in the heart of the Old Town. Just a few steps to the Flower Market (go and get your breakfast there!) and to the beach promenade.

Lovely little shops, supermarkets and restaurants around.

The apartment is in a great condition, very clean, you'll find everything you need and the decoration is in the best of taste. You can enjoy sitting on the balcony and watch the lively atmosphere on Plaza Rosetti.

The Owner is providing a plenty choice of DVDs, (guide-)books.

The info we got from the Owner about the apartments amendments and how to get there was a big help.

We really enjoyed our stay very much and definitely come back again!!!

We got plenty of information about the location, transportaion and about the old city.

We really loved it!!!!!!!!!

We will go back and would never even consider looking for any other place to stay!

Thank you so much!

The flat on Place Rossetti can be easily reached by bus from the airport. The bus 98 takes you directly to the Gare Routier (bus station) which is located about 200m away from the flat. The bus costs only a few euros per ticket and is the cheaper option, as a taxi from the airport would cost you about 28 euros. The taxi ride is much faster and might get you from the airport to the flat in about 10 minutes.

The old town area is strictly pedestrianised, so you won't need a car to do your daily trips to the local boulangeries or the shops.

Gourmets and food lovers will enjoy buying their fruit and veg at the local market on Cours Saleya, about 200 meters away from the flat. Even closer, a local wine shop where you can buy great wine by the litre straight from the barrel for a few Euros. You can also buy your olive oil, freshly made pasta and other local delicatessen from authentic artisan shops right at your door step.

Surrounded by so much local delicious produce you might even want to cook your own lunch and enjoy on the balcony with a glass of chilled rose. We've recently discovered a wonderful Italian delicatessen around the corner from the flat, and their buffalo morzarella is the best in the world. We also stocked up on Italian cold cuts such as parma ham and mortadella. You cannot miss that shop, the smell of ham and fresh crusty bread will draw you inside in no time.

But don't stop there, there is ice cream for dessert. Place Rossetti is famous for two local ice cream shops, which have been established as Nicois artisans for decades. Fenoccio and Pincoccio boast with over 100 ice cream flavours - our tip: have a scoop every day and work your way through the menu.

The old town also boast with history and numerous beautiful churches - the cathedral Sainte Reparate is located nearby on Place Rossetti and fans of culture won't have far to go to get their fix of art as the Opera is just only 400m away across the Flower Market.

Since the beaches are only a stone throw away, a nice stumble along the Promenade de Anglais is fantastic at any time throughout the year regardless of the weather as you will have a spectacular view of the Mediterranean in its different shades of blue. In the summer the beach invites holidaymakers to sunbath, swim and cool off during the hot weather.
