Our family have enjoyed so many wonderful holidays in Nice. Spring and Autumn for sightseeing and shopping. Summer for water sports and beaches. Winter for skiing in the 4 resorts only an hour away. A few years ago we realised our dream to buy our own little 'place in the sun', and 2014 our son has joined us in buying the apartment next door. These are our family holiday homes and perhaps for retirement in the future.

ATHENA ROBINSON purchased this Apartment in 2010


We just love the charm and uniqueness of Vieux Nice. We chose Place St Francois in The Old Town which couldn't be in a better location. right in the centre of everything, yet quiet and easy to get to. Public transport is amazing, reliable and convenient and generally only 1.50euro p/f. So many beautiful places to explore on our days out, with Monaco and Italy to the east and the beautiful French Riviera to the west. Just couldn't get any better and we just love coming back again, and again, and again

                                                          • Notes on accommodation: Unlike most of Vieux Nice apartments, we have easy access from the street and trams/buses, and easy climb stairs. Although close to Vieux Nice's bustling cobbled streets and alleys, the apartments face the infamous Place St Francois and away from the frantic pace of the heart of the Old town. Traditional 17th-C building but with all modern conveniences. Perfectly situated for exploring the French Riviera, a stroll down to the beach, shopping, restaurants and night life.

                                                            The apartment was in the perfect location and so cute! Pat met us and gave us a lot of great info on the walk to the apartment. The wine, cheese, and bread waiting for us when we got there was so nice after a long night of traveling. Not huge, but a perfect size for two people. Thanks Athena & Pat!

                                                            Cosy Clean Apartment

                                                            Linda S.

                                                            Lovely apartment in old part of Nice. Everything you need is on your doorstep, Shops, Restaurants, Museums Transport etc. For myself I found it had too many steps to reach the front door of the apartment but for somebody younger it wouldn't be a problem. Still, we both had a most enjoyable stay. Bed was very comfortable.

                                                            Great place in Old Nice

                                                            Joanne B.

                                                            Nothing but good things to say about the apartment, the location and the welcome. It's small but tidy, and every necessity was thoughtfully provided. There was even bread and cheese and a bottle of wine, coffee and milk and water, eliminating the need to run out immediately for supplies - very welcome. Pat met me and installed me quickly and cheerfully, the internet worked, all was well.

                                                            I know this part of Nice and it's a fantastic location, easy walking everywhere, plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, and all the local flavor you could want.

                                                            And even though there were people arriving the day I left, George and Pat arranged to help me store my suitcase (late flight out) and set up a transfer for me.

                                                            Couldn't be better.

                                                            Quaint and ideal for a short stay.

                                                            Kiri D.

                                                            Loved the location right outside the fish market and so inside old town. Many restaurants, bars, and shops were just outside the door. Convenient for anyone who doesn't like the prom de anglais as much. You can walk to it, the chateau, waterfall... it's all so close. Loved the bed size. My husband is over six feet and that's always important for comfort. Pat was fantastic. She manages this property with several others. Merci to both of these lovely ladies!
