Overview

Nice Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A beautiful apartment for 2 persons in the Port of Nice

The 'Port' apartment, which sleeps 2 people, is bright and stylish and is positioned on the fifth floor of a charming 18th century Nicoise building in the most colorful and vibrant part of Nice. The apartment is extremely situated only 20 metres from one of Europe's most impressive squares, the beautiful 18th century Place Garibaldi. The Old Town (Vieux Nice), the Marina (Port), beaches, and Parc du Chateau are all within a couple minutes walk away.

You enter the building through tall double wrought-iron doors into a marbled floor hall and take the lift to the top (fifth) floor. The accommodation comprises entrance hall, shower room, lounge, kitchen with breakfast bar, double bed. The appealing and bright living room has original oak beams and French windows giving you charming views of the Town and the mountains. There is a comfortable sofa, colour TV, stereo CD player/radio, and dining table. The large open-plan kitchen has a beautiful breakfast bar, and is fitted with cupboards, an electric cooker with four ring hob, microwave, electric kettle, coffee maker, and fridge/freezer. In the hall, there is extra storage space, with iron and ironing board. The shower room (hair dryer provided) has a wash basin, vanity unit and toilet. There is a full-sized double bed, wardrobe hanging space, and extra storage on a second level reached by four small steps. There are heating radiators in every room if you ever need them. The apartment has an entry phone system.

Special Offer: Book 3 weeks and get the 4th week FREE.

Also available is our Verdi apartment, which sleeps 2 people, and is airy, stylish and well-positioned on the raised ground floor of an historic Art Deco landmark in the heart of the Musician's Quarter, the most sought-after residential area in Nice. You enter the building through wrought-iron doors and pass around the Art Deco style fountain with marble staircase. The apartment, quietly positioned facing the leafy courtyard, is spacious and bright with high french ceilings and polished marble floors throughout. It is a delightful two minute stroll to the Promenade des Anglais, the best shops in Nice, the Bay of Angels, and miles of beaches.

The apartments are conveniently only ten minutes from Nice Airport.

Great Location!

  • 3 of 5

This apartment could not have been better situated for exploring Nice. It was close to the Port and all the transportation hubs to get you around and out of the city for a day trip. The apartment was exactly as pictured on the website, but there is no view of the Port from the windows. The lift was most helpful and the combination lock was a great security help on the outside door. Lots of great restaurants nearby in Garibaldi Square. Easy walking to everywhere or the Tram. Apartment faces right onto a busy street, so, if you are a light sleeper, I would not recommend as it was quite noisy.

Owner's Response: The apartment is ideally located on a very lovely street (rue Cassini) near a beautiful square (Place Garibaldi) and is on the top (and fifth) floor of a period building with a lift. But I (and many of my other guests) would have to disagree with the opinion of this reviewer regarding noise -- because the vast majority of guests have told me that the area is extremely calm and quiet for such a central location! In fact, the apartment is very calm throughout the day-time and absolutely calm at night!

Useful base for exploring ...

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this little studio flat- although small, it's comfortable and practical for two, and brilliantly situated for the Old Town, beaches, transport, etc. It's important to mention that the bed is up several steep steps on a platform, so better suited to the young and agile. There was some street noise, which was only to be expected in this part of town, but the building itself was reasonably quiet. There is free Wifi in the lovely Place Garibaldi, only steps from the apartment, as well as good breakfast places and a supermarket. Gregg was also extremely helpful before and during our stay and was always prompt to respond to our questions.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 4-star review of our apartment. On the website, I describe the apartment as having a couple of small steps to the sleeping area. There is a little handrail for anyone who needs it. Many people have commented that this particular feature of the apartment adds character and has a certain charm, and guests have returned many times. However, I have another pleasant apartment in the Musician's Quarter (please go to Homeaway reference 1693698) which you may like even more because there are no steps inside and the price is a little less!

Splendid

  • 5 of 5

Apartment and Nice were splendid. Would have liked to spend a few more days. Everything worked great although we did not bother with watching much French TV because there were too many other things to do! The apartment was ideal for our needs and the weather was perfect. We enjoyed walks to the Promenade in the evenings -- the sea is beautiful. Many thanks for a great holiday.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We very much endorse all the previous comments made in that the apartment was well-furnished, clean, and in an excellent central location. We looked forward to returning to it each night after a busy day out. The old town is an amazing place and we both had the best time in Nice.

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friend stayed in the Port apartment. It was really wonderful- a perfect location. The apartment may be small but it was so lovely to stay in. Not only is the apartment perfect for my mum (who also stayed for one night) but it was ideal for us (two 21 year olds). We will be back for sure!

Gregg was very accommodating and helpful!

Well situated lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I originally booked into another hotel. However, after our room was unavailable, the hotel rebooked us into a nearby hotel of a much worse quality. Not wanting to put a dampener on our long Easter weekend break, we spent the afternoon searching for alternative options. Thankfully, we found Gregg's port apartment, which had great amenities and was priced similarly to the hotel we were checking out of.

Gregg was fantastic and very accommodating. Another couple had only just checked out of the apartment that day, but he was able to arrange for the cleaner to come earlier so we'd be able to check in the following day ASAP.

While our first hotel was in a convenient, but more touristy area (just off Avenue Jean Medecin), the port apartment was perfectly situated. The nearby Place Girabaldi has a lovely chocolatier, brasserie and large Monoprix. We loved having a kitchen to take advantage of all the lovely French produce and cook our own breakfast and dinner nearly every day. Cooking our own food was more cost effective, making the apartment even better value.

The bathroom was a little small, but worked fine for us. The height of the shower might be an issue for anyone much taller than 6', but wasn't problematic for us (I'm 5'6" and my husband is 5'11"). The flat is at the top of the building, which provided great views. A lift is available, but we chose to use the stairs in an effort to burn off some of the delicious baguettes and macarons we enjoyed throughout our stay!

On arriving by plane at the airport of Nice-Cote d'Azur, you will see the breath-taking view of Nice's stunning setting, surrounded by hills and mountains, tucked into the Bay of Angels on the Mediterranean Sea. Graced with a year round gentle climate and beautiful sights, Nice boasts the highest number of museums in France, with the Marc Chagall National Biblical Message Museum, the Matisse Museum, the Anatole Jakovsky International Museum of Naïve Art, and the Asian Arts Museum ranked among the nation's finest.

Just minutes walk from the apartments, you will discover the Sardinian neighbourhoods in the port, the Victorian avenues of Cimiez, the breath-taking panorama at the top of Parc du Chateau, the picturesque streets of the Old Town, and the 'Promenade des Anglais'--the flower-filled boulevard which follows the curve of the seafront, with miles of attractive and comfortable well-kept public beaches.
