The apartment is in the heart of the old town placing you in the epicentre of Nice. Wake up to the aroma of the boulangeries, and savour unrivalled views of mountains and church towers, from its double aspect lounge windows. The apartment is decorated with a combination of stylish English and French furniture, thus retaining the authentic feel with original features including high ceilings, tomette flooring, fireplace and windows/shutters. It is on the fourth floor, so despite the (shallow and wide) stairs, it is worth it to gain the most sunshine and least disturbance above street level.

Why Nice is so nice!
The French Riviera is renowned for glamorous hotspots such as Cannes, Monaco and St Tropez; and Nice is the ideal location from which to explore these desirable destinations and more of the captivating coastline, be it by yacht, train or bicycle. Nice offers a myriad of activities such as exhilarating watersports, exclusive bars, spectacular hikes and top notch restaurants. Stroll along the infamous Promenade des Anglais which runs parallel to the ocean and the town; providing an ideal spot to walk, run, cycle, or rollerblade for miles! Events in Nice run all year round, from the impressive Christmas markets to the spectacular Carnival in mid -February.
It is hard to pick the best time to holiday in the French Riviera, with every month offering something special. Nice offers the very rare possibility of going skiing in the Alps in the morning, then spending the afternoon on a mesmerising Mediterranean beach. If you walk out the flat for 20m then take a left, you are on the beach with a plethora of beach bars to choose from. Pop to ‘Cours Saleya', the backbone of Mediterranean lifestyle, where you can buy fresh fish, flowers and fruit and veg. The tram stop is 2 minutes from the apartment, and the train station is a 10 minute walk down the high street. We recommend hiring the blue bicycles (free for first half hour), as the promenade is a flat stretch, perfect for cycling! The Old Town boasts delightful narrow streets with tall houses looming above you, with their typical French shutters. You needn't walk far for dinner as you are spoilt for choice literally on your doorstep; take your pick from the variety of cuisines available...
For a memorable week we have some of itinerary suggestions; pop to Italy within the hour on Saturday for the authentic morning markets, or explore the charms of Corsica which is accessible by ferry from Nice Port. You may not have heard of Villefranche; this seaside gem is opposite Cap Ferrat, and is home to many of the most exclusive villas in the world. Furthermore, Eze is a medieval village precariously perched on a rocky peak, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea with the castle being the main attraction. Hire a car and drive, or if you're feeling fit put your walking boots on and hike up, to truly capture the essence of the Côte d'Azur.

*****Better than our trip to Hawaii!!
You couldn’t better the location and comfort of this apartment . Situated in the middle of old town Nice, there is everything you need on your doorstep. It’s a lovely, buzzing area full of restaurants, cafes, delicatessens, bakeries, etc ... all outside the front door! The beach is just a minutes walk through the flower market. There are plenty of museums, art galleries and places to visit. The walks along the coast are great too, with plenty of other beaches to visit . My husband hired a bike and explored the Corniches, saying the views were spectacular! You don’t need to hire a car as the buses are so cheap and frequent. The apartment itself is tastefully decorated and well equipped to a high standard. The beds and sofas are very comfy and there’s an excellent dvd collection to choose from if you choose to stay in. The supermarket in town has a fantastic choice so we stayed in and cooked delicious meals sat by the open window taking in the warm evening air and buzz of the town below with street musicians! Felt like we were in our very own restaurant ! Although we recently spent a week in Hawaii , we preferred the week we spent here as it had everything on our tick list for an enjoyable, comfortable, relaxing holiday! Highly recommended!
*****Fantastic location Left on Oct 30, 2017 for a stay in Oct 2017
Bright and roomy, this apartment in the heart of the old town is well-equipped, has great views from the sitting-room and is superbly located. The beach and the market are only a few minutes' walk, the area is packed with good restaurants and cafes, and public transport - trams, buses and the train - is easily accessible. We used the bike rental system Velo Bleu to get around too - a bit fiddly to set up but very reasonable and easy to use thereafter, and there are plenty of bike "stations" to pick up and drop off bikes. Matthew who looks after the apartment was welcoming and helpful, and kindly offered us earplugs: as you'd expect in a buzzing city location, there is noise at night from the bars below. There's plenty to explore and it's easy to travel along the coast in both directions on the fast and efficient trains. It was also a joy to swim in the Med in late October! We greatly enjoyed our stay.
DeirdreDevon ***** A wonderfully French experience Left on Oct 1, 2017 for a stay in Sep 2017
From the beautiful Nicoise tiled floors to the slatted wooden window shutters this is a traditional and stylish old-town apartment. No air-con and no lift but there is a washing machine and dishwasher and the bathroom is of a good standard. Super-comfy beds. The streets below are lined with cafes and restaurants and the noise can carry so it's not the quietest apartment we've had. However the atmosphere is great - you can step out of the door and find amazing local shops: wine cave, fresh pasta, boulangerie and a daily fish market. The beach is just a few minutes walk and the owners kindly supply loungers, mats and beach towels. The maps, walking guides and eating out tips were most welcome.

***** Beautiful top-floor apartment with lovely views of the old town. Returned here for a second time for my birthday weekend. Excellent location a few minutes from the beach and surrounded by all the lovely restaurants hidden in the little streets in the old town of Nice. There's a nice, bright, open-plan dining room/living room with a big window perfect for people watching on the street below, but being on the top floor is ideal as there's no street noise. There's a tram stop a couple of minutes' walk from the building where you can go up to the train station - the great thing about Nice is that it's right in the centre of all the gorgeous towns along the French Riviera. Looking forward to coming back (and the fresh pastries each morning from the boulangerie around the corner)!
