Overview

Nice Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Sunny, airy, modern apartment in historic building in the heart of Vieux Nice

For Shorter Stays and other methods of payment please enquire.

Fabulous apartment with views over the roofs of old Nice to the sea. 100m from the markets of Cour Saleya and the beach with its abundance of cafés and restaurants this is a location that is hard to beat.

The apartment was selected by us, to include as one of our rental properties, for its location. Rue du Malonat is a quiet pedestrien side street, right in the heart of old Nice. You step out of the door, 20 meters to the end of the street, and you literally have hundreds of cafés, restaurants, and shops, not to mention the famous market stalls of Cour Saleya just around the corner. Another few steps from there and you are on the Quai des Etas Unis and the beach.

When you have had enough sun, and enough food, there are a multitude of other things to see and do, from scuba diving and sailing, through cycling and rollerblading, to a multitude of museums and maybe an evening at the Opera.

With all this on your doorstep, you are sure to enjoy your stay.

How to double the size of the apartment.: This apartment is on next door to another apartment we operate called Saleya. The two apartments can be rented separately or together to create accommodation for up to ten people. There is a doorway off the staircase that gives onto a hallway, from that hallway each apartment has it's own front door. If the apartments are rented separately, then the hallway remains 'public', and if they are rented together then the hallway remains 'private'.

Getting around: Busses- The TAM busses are operated by the Conseil General des Alpes Maritimes and now charge a flat 1.50 per person, per trip. ie Every time you get on the bus, you pay 1.50€ regardless of how far you are going. The busses are clean, usually on time, and air conditioned.

Trains- The TER trains are the ones that serve the coastal towns, they are regular and clean. A ticket Nice to Monaco return will set you back 5 euro, but if you fancy spending the day exploring several towns then you are best to go for the Carte Isabelle which allows you on and off the train from Fréjus to Vintimiglia as many times as you like in one day, and costs 12 euro, unfortunately it is only available in the summer month July to September.

If train journeys is what you enjoy then you might want to consider the Chemin de Fer de Provence which offers a very scenic train through the lower Alpes from Nice to Dignes, clinging to the hill sides as it meanders its way across valleys and on up into the hills.

Tram- The tram is popular, and is therefore usually crowded, Tickets can be bought at the stops, from the booths on the platforms

Pricing is as follows;

1 trip ticket =1.50 euro

10 trip ticket = 10 euro

1 day pass = 4 euro

7 day pass = 15 euro

Cyclotour- You will see, dotted around Nice, strange tricycles with a covered back seat. If you are worn out from to much walking and/or shopping, use them. They are usually driven by students who will take you wherever you want for 1.50/km, even on a tour of Nice.

Parking- For those of you who come by car, parking Saleya (under cours Saleya) do passes for the duration of your stay . As a guide they charge 49€ for a three day pass and 9€ a day thereafter, which allows you in and out as often as you like. It is worth remembering that if it is your birthday they will offer you your birthday parking for free, and they have bicycles that they will lend free to car park users. You can get information on all this on site in the car park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in the Malonat apartment in July 2007 for 5 magical nights. Fantastic! Thanks to our hosts who were very helpful and welcoming. It was greatly appreciated, our trip was so much more enjoyable. The apartment was gorgeous and well worth the climb! The location was perfect, everything at our doorstep, including the market which had the most delicious food! I'll never forget the taste of those olives! In the afternoon, we enjoyed strolling through the little streets of the Old Town and discovering interesting shops, churches, restaurants and the evening market. Everyone comments on the jewelery I bought in Nice at that market. The other bonus is that the beach is only a few minutes walk away from the apartment.



Cheers and thanks for a great place to stay.

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

The location is in the heart of the old town of Nice so it is close to bars, restaurants, cafes and the famous Cours Saleya, very authentic and practical. The beach and Promenade des Anglais are just couple of minutes away. The flat is in a beautiful, old building, right in the heart of the Old Town, shared with locals. It is a 4th floor walk up, so not ideal for those with knee problems, older people and may be for children. The apartment is great! Two bedrooms with a split bathroom and a great dining area.

Rosemary is a fantastic host - she knows the area well and is so helpful and informative. And speacial thanks to Rosemary again for helping us with our bags . Hope to see you this year again Rosemary ..!

Tidy apartment with great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is as described and we´ve stayed there several times. Its location in heart of the old town makes it both authentic and practical. In Nice almost everything is reached by foot and if you rent a car you can easily discover the French and Italian Rivieras. The beach and Promenade des Anglais are just couple of minutes away, Cours Saleya even closer. In the evening there are lots of restaurants to choose from or you can just stroll the alleys in the old town or visit the renewed Promenade du Paillon. We´ve always got good and flexible service, couldn´t ask for more!

Ideal apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The location is in the heart of the old town of Nice so it is close to bars, restaurants, cafes and the famous Nice market. Less than 10 minutes' walk to the seafront and 15 to a great Monoprix (food shop).

The apartment itself is great! Two bedrooms with a split bathroom and a great kitchen/dining area. It was the perfect place to come back to after a long day of walking and exploring! The building itself is quiet as well so there is no worry of noise while trying to sleep.

Rosemary is a fantastic host - she knows the area well and is so helpful and informative. I would absolutely recommend this spot.

The perfect spot for an authentic stay in Nice!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this flat justice! We are a family of 4 adults and stayed in Malonat, which was perfect for us. The wc and shower room are split, which is so convenient for getting ready in the morning, the latter with double sinks. The flat is in a beautiful, old building, right in the heart of the Old Town, shared with local residents. It is a 4th floor walk up, so not ideal for those with knee problems, but great for the rest of us looking to burn off all the cheese and wine! It is such great value given all of the above, and I would recommend it/return myself in a heartbeat. Special thanks to Rosemary for being very helpful all the way through our stay, including in notifying us of a bus strike on the day of our departure!

lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

We were met by Rosemary who led us to the apartment which is lovely, nice and airy with some fantastic views over the rooftops. Rosemary explained everything and the apt comes with everything needed for a family holiday. Bakers 1 minute away, little shop for essentials as well and a large supermarket a 10 min walk. Loads of restaurants and bars on your doorstep ( though the flat was lovely and quiet at night). Only a few minutes from the market and the beach as well. Only small negative was the size of single beds in childrens room as my 6 foot son didn't fit so had to sleep on the sofabed ( which came with linen and was by all accounts perfectly comfortable) Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment and in Nice, the stairs are a bit tough on the legs but you feel you've earned your croissant!

Sensational apartment in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Rosemary for a seamless booking and meet and greet arrangements. The apartment was exactly as advertised and the beds really comfortable. The apartment has a well thought out layout and views of the sea to sit and eat breakfast of fresh croissant from the boulangerie just around the corner. With its central location right there in the old town, it really couldn't have been in a better spot. As a base from which to visit other places, Nice is perfect - we took a ferry to St Tropez, a train to Juan les pins and bus to Monte Carlo & Villefranche sur Mer - all fab days out and a breeze to suss out. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment, or indeed from staying there again myself. Thanks Rosemary (especially helping me with my bag when I arrived alone!)

Location, location, location. Three words that best describe this apartments position. Just a few minute to the beach, main shopping district and to the bus station. You are in the heart of old Nice on a street that is quiet at night and day but with a hive of activity just around the corner. Close to Cours Saleya - the location of the daily flower market. Public transport is reliable and cheap (1.50€ anywhere on the buses) and offers easy access other places to explore from Cannes to Monte Carlo.

The apartment is located in the heart of Vieux Ville - Nice. Close (1min walk) to the Promenade des Anglais - Nice's famous seafront esplanade. It's 6km long and is a fantastic place for a stroll or hire a bicycle or set of Rollerblades. Nearby there are art galleries and museums (Musee Matisse, Musee des Beaux Arts, Musee d'Art Moderne) .

Why not indulge in breakfast on the beach, lunch with a seafood plater at 'Le Safari', and finish the day dancing to the small hours at 'La Bodeguita'
