About the property

This luminous and warmly decorated one bedroom apartment is situated in the heart of the historic Old Nice area. It will offer you an unforgettable stay in one of the best and liveliest parts of Nice.

The newly refurbished and modern Duplex with stunning views over the roof tops of Nice and the surrounding mountains.

This roomy duplex accommodation (45m2) is situated in a charming and authentic Nicois building. It has been totally refurbished in 2008. It is situated on the 5th floor (no elevator).

This exceptional apartment is located in a pedestrian street, which is just a few steps from the famous ‘Cours Saleya’, the ‘Promenade des Anglais’ and only about 3 minutes away from the beach.

The very modern kitchen opens up to the dining room area and living space. The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric hob/oven, dishwasher, washing machine, and numerous appliances. The table in the dining area allows entertaining friends for dinner. You also have a flat screen TV/DVD (USB port), HiFi and a high-speed internet connection at your disposal.

The upper duplex floor level continues the luminous feel of the flat.

Double glazing and air condition throughout the flat allow a good night’s sleep before and after an exciting day exploring Nice.

Only a stone throw away from the daily markets, delicatessen and local shops and countless restaurants, gourmets can indulge into the local Nicois cuisine.

Best Location in Nice and immaculate apartment.

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the duplex in Place Rossetti in Old Nice was fantastic. I stay there whenever I visit Nice. The flat overlooks the square where you have dozens of restaurants, the best gelato ice cream shops, bars, live music and the beach is only a five minute stroll away. The apartment is beautifully fitted out with everything you need. Quality appliances, cable tv and excellent wi/fi. The kitchen is fully decked out so you can buy local produce from the market (3 mins away), and cook anything you like. Oven, dishwasher and washing machine as well. It is a very special part of the world and this apartment is is the best location to explore it from. The apartment is always freshly clean when I arrive, the bed is very comfortable as is the sofa which also folds out to a double bed. Overall, this is a brilliant place to stay and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Five stars.

This flat is in an amazing location and has some great views!

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from our 8 night stay in this flat. It was very clean and the kitchen was more than adequate. DO pay attention to the no lift as there are 86 steps most of which are uneven. This is very typical in an old building but be aware and be careful. I had not looked carefully enough and was not aware that there were more steps to the bedroom, bath. This area was spacious and nice but does require that one walks with a stoop most of the time. Once again, more lovely view from the bathroom window. We loved being on the Place Rissetti and just steps from the Cathedral. We could look out on the courtyard at night and see all of the local activity but were high enough to not be bothered by it.

We did have an incident where the fob was demagnetized and we were locked out of the building. Phone did not get through to Sarah Jane and we had a few moments of panic until a workman came along and admitted us. Maybe a back-up plan? We are not sure if the washer had a dryer unit with it or not. Sarah Jane not familiar with the unit and we were able to figure out the washing part but never the dryer.

Would recommend for the young.

Fantastic Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the flat is as described in the advert by the owner. We had a smooth transition from the time we booked to the time we stayed there. The owner is not on sight, but was fantastic and fast in answering our emails and any questions we had, as was the local contact also. The description to getting to the flat was also very good and we had absolutely easiest of time getting to it from the airport.

The flat is ideally located, it is at the Place Rossetti, which means restaurants and ice cream parlours are right in front of you. Around the corner from the flat you can find a main street with different restaurants serving all sort of different cuisine. Five minutes from the door of the flat is the beach.

The flat is comfortable, and well equipped, it also has air conditioning, and fantastic view of Place Rossetti. It has a double bed in bedroom, and a double sofa bed in the living room. Kitchen is so well equipped, that you will even find converters and adapter plugs in case you forget your own. What more do you need, when the owner thinks of even those little things?

I highly recommend it, for the space, for location and for great communication. You won't regret it if you choose the Duplex Rossetti.

Charming duplex flat in the heart of Old Nice.

  • 5 of 5

This flat is a perfect romantic get away but also suitable for a family of 4 since it has two large king sized beds. Fully equipped kitchen with a dish-washer as well as a washing machine. And they work!

We loved the location since everything is within walking distance. The beach, the flower market, the old docks and lots of great restaurants and bars. The flat is on the top floor and has a great view over the castle and Place Rossetti.

The beach is close enough so one can run home and take a shower and change.

Our favorit wine and cheese bar Le Fromageri was just around the corner as well as our favorit bar Les Distilleries Idéales. If one walks a bit further in to town we highly recommend Le Canon but be sure to book ahead. At the flower market the best bet is Le Safari. The flat was also close to Rue Bonaparte where there are a string of funky and cool cafes where there are more locals than turists.

Just a few minuts walk one can take the 100 bus that will take you along the shore to Monaco. Be sure not to miss the smal quaint villages such as Ezé and/or Villefranche-sur-Mer.

This flat we’ve stayed in before and long to return to.

"Joli appartement, foncti...

  • 5 of 5

"Joli appartement, fonctionnel et bien équipé en plein coeur du vieux Nice. Un peu difficile d''accès (escalier pentu), convient très bien à un couple, sans enfant et sans véhicule.

Du fait de son emplacement (quartier très vivant et commerçant), un peu bruyant mais reste très agréable."

Owner's Response: We are clear in our ad of the location of the flat so that the potential renter is aware that there will be stairs and that the flat is located in a lively area. It is unusual for an old Nicois building to have lifts. However, from the apartment you have a wonderful view over the Old Town and the Castle on the nearby hill.

Promenade des Anglais

Easy access to the flat via bus 98 from the airport. You need to get off at Gare Routiere and walk about 200meters into the Old town towards Place Rossetti to the flat. The bus fare is currently 6 Euros and takes about 20-25 minutes (depending on traffic along the Promenade des Anglais.) Taxis are quick and easy from the airport. A taxi would get you to the Old town in about 10-15 minutes (depending on traffic along the Promenade des Anglais) but will cost you no less than 28 Euros.

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.

There you got daily fruit and veg markets, as well as antiques market on Mondays.

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 morzzarella is the best we’ve ever tasted. 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.

Nice offers plenty of entertainment (cinema, opera, casinos) all year round and has a very busy social calender, starting with the carneval in February ending with a big Christmas and New Year's celebration in early J
