About Jemima Lawrence

Jemima and Joe live in a small village in the Peak District England. We and our four grown-up children love Nice and come out several times a year. We consider the apartment to be our second home, not just a holiday let, so have furnished and equipped it as such.

Jemima Lawrence purchased this Apartment in 2005

Why Jemima Lawrence chose Nice

The property is very well located giving easy access to the promenade and beach, the port, the old town and main shopping area. It is dual aspect (South East/South West facing) with seven floor-to-ceiling French windows so is very light and airy. There is a small balcony big enough for two chairs and a small table - great for people watching while enjoying a glass of wine!

What makes this Apartment unique

We fell in love with the 'Frenchness' of the apartment! It is so light and spacious (90 square metres) and fantastically convenient. Bars, restaurants, shops and many of the sights of Nice are on the doorstep. For travelling further afield there is easy access to buses, trams and trains.

                                                              Chris K.

                                                              We spent a long weekend in Nice with friends and this was the ideal place to stay.

                                                              The apartment is on the corner of a great old building, right around the corner from MAMAC and a few minutes walk from the old city and beach.

                                                              There were plenty of bakeries, restaurants and bars around and we didn’t need to take a bus, train, or taxi the whole time we were there.

                                                              I was really pleasantly surprised by how large the apartment was, and the high ceilings made it feel even bigger. We had everything we needed to feel at home and would definitely recommend this to families or couples looking for a homely and hassle free base to explore Nice and the Côte d’Azur!

                                                              Thanks, Chris, for taking the trouble to write a review. The apartment is our home, and it’s gratifying to us that people enjoy it as much as we do. We look forward to welcoming you to Nice again one day!

                                                              Beautiful apartment but no air con

                                                              Heather C.

                                                              We stayed here last summer in August. Our first impression was that the apartment was beautifully furnished with all the equipment you could need but was stiflingly hot. There is no air conditioning and the windows need to be kept open (with shutters closed) to keep the sun out but the traffic makes this very noisy. There are fans but it is not sufficient to keep you cool. I'm sure this would be a lovely place to stay off season, but in the summer air conditioning is absolutely essential here.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks for posting a review, Heather.

                                                              I'm sorry that you found our apartment too hot.

                                                              We and our previous guests have found the fans to be effective as cooling devices, but having looked at weather data from August 2016 (the date of your stay 11½ months ago) I see that temperatures were unusually high i.e. 31C as opposed the the normal 27C, which might help explain why you found the fans insufficient.

                                                              Spacious flat in prime location

                                                              Sue F.

                                                              This beautifully modernised flat in a traditional Niçoise building is equipped with everything you'd need for the perfect self-catering holiday. The attention to detail makes this one of the best apartments we've stayed in.

                                                              The location is perfect for all the attractions of Nice and has easy access to public transport.

                                                              Correspondence with the helpful owners has been most efficient. Our thanks to them.

                                                              Highly recommended.

                                                              It is very gratifying to receive such favourable comments from guests staying in our apartment. This apartment is our home and very special to us, so it is lovely that others seem to enjoy it as much as we do.

                                                              Fabulous apartment in great location

                                                              Judith K.Manchester, UK

                                                              This was one of the best properties we've stayed in and was ideal for us (couple and 14 year old son). It is a large apartment with everything you could want or need during your holiday. Little things like having UK plug sockets available, and USB points in the bedside lamps for phone charging, made a big difference.

                                                              We had 9 days of brilliant weather. Visiting in winter though it was great to return to an apartment with luxuries like Sky TV, all the BBC channels and Netflix!

                                                              The apartment is in a great position. It is an easy walk through lovely gardens to reach Promenade des Anglais, and it is only 5-10 minutes walk to the maze of Old Town streets with individual shops and restaurants. Buses and trams are also close by. Longer trips on the bus, such as to Monaco or Luceram (delightful mountain village full of Christmas nativity scenes at this time of year) are only €1.50, or for other destinations on the Nice 'network' buy a book of 10 for €10.

                                                              With the location being so central there is noise from the traffic. You soon get used to it though and it certainly wasn't a problem. I took ear plugs but the other 2 were fine sleeping without them.

                                                              We loved Nice and staying here made a good holiday better. Thank you.

                                                              Thanks, JK, for writing such a lovely review. It is so gratifying when guests clearly appreciate and love our home in Nice as much as we do.

                                                              We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Nice again one day.

                                                              Best wishes,

                                                              Spacious,comfortable apartment in Nice old town.

                                                              Extremely comfortable apartment ideally situated in the older part of Nice. This apartment has everything you could wish for to enjoy a stay in Nice. Centrally located offering easy access to bars, cafes, restaurants and shops, all within easy walking distance. Excellent public transport links allowing easy use of tram, bus or trains to explore the coastline from Italy to St Tropez. The owners have thought of everything, even supplying beach mats and sunshades for lazy days by the sea. Very comprehensive factsheet supplied giving details of local area and good selection of maps and guides available in the apartment. Due to central location there is some noise through the night, ( bin wagons, buses, early morning commuters) but we did not find it a great problem. However in height of Summer if you wished to sleep with the windows open it may be more of an issue.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks for your nice review, Barry. I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay in our apartment and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

                                                              A fabulous apartment in ideal settings

                                                              Everything was as described ! The apartment was light, spacious and very nicely furnished. Everything we needed was provided. So although we had some bad luck with the weather we had a very comfortable stay. You can do the daily shopping just opposite and it is just a short walk to the old town. We would definitely come again.

                                                              Dietlinde and friends
