Very Nice apartment in Nice

  • 5 of 5

We. two adults and two children(19 and 17), stayed in the nice and comfortable apartment of Guro and Philippe.

The apartment is very spacious, well equipped, good maintained and very clean, situated in a building(with elevator) on the fourth floor, in the heart of the town.

The trainstation and the beach are a 10 min. walk away. You can reach avenue Jean Medicin in 3 minutes(walking) and place Massena in less than ten minutes. In 10 minutes you reach the old town. So almost everything lies within walking distance. A fine bakery is on the corner next to the apartment.

A city tour by Segway is a fine experience and highly recommendable.

The contact(e-mail and personal) with the owners Guro and Philippe was very good. Philippe provided us with useful information about the city.

I certainly recommend this apartment for a lovely stay in Nice.

Great place to stay in Nice

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Guro's apartment was one of the best part on our vacations in Europe. We rented the apartment for 6 days and Guro greeted us so enthusiastic , even though we arrived hours later since the train had a problem on our way to Nice .Family of 5 with 3 kids and we loved the apartment , bright, cozy, very clean, comfortable beds and and has all the amenities that you need for the perfect holiday .

The location can not be better. 5 mins walk from excellent and nice coffee shops and restaurants. 10 mins walk from the beach and the Old Town ... The bakery downstairs has the best baguettes , pastries and sandwiches you can imagine.

It was a pleasure to stay in this apartment.

I would highly recommend Guro's apartment for your stay in Nice. You are not going to be dissappointed.

Holiday with kids in Nice

  • 5 of 5

We were 12 nights holiday in Nice with three small kids.Everything was nice and clean in this apartment.The apartment was close to everything,500 meters to beach,near was two good food shop and town centre.Big bakery was just downstairs and it was only 400 meters to the railwaystation. The owner of the apartment was very helpful and everything went very well with her too.There is also lot activities to the children too in Nice fo exacample new playingpark.We went walking with the kids also to Chagall,Matisse and modern museums.Near the Matisse museum is nice park to have picnic and lovely monastery garden.

We had also a daytrip to Monaco to Oceanographique and children loved that too.They could even touch a real shark there:)One of the best things in Nice is also the old town flower and vegetable market Cours Saley. I have never ate so good and fresh vegetables and fruits:) Also restaurants in old town have lovely,fresh food and the atmosphere is so relaxed.Last but not least is the blue ocean and swimming in sea in a long beach.The children could also swimm in a river that goes to the sea. The people in Nice and Monaco were kind helpfull.We hope to go there someday again and rent this apartment.If you choose to take the Nice on your holiday, take as long time as you can get,because there is so much to see.Our twelve days weren;t enough:) Best regards Ilona from Finland.

Fantastic Apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

Wow, fantastic apartment in an ideal location for shopping , beach and evening entertainment. It is well equipped (although a mirror in the bedrooms would have been great) and an ideal size for 4 girlfriends having a weekend away. With the supermarket & bakery on our doorstep what more could we ask for. With great communication & excellent arrival and departure service I would recommend to anyone. My friends & I are planning another trip here!

Excellent apartment. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

The communication was excellent throughout, making all the costs and arrival details very clear. The apartment was easy to find and sits on the fourth floor above a very good bakery (there is a lift!). The layout is good with two comfortable double bedrooms and the apartment is fully equipped including a washing machine. It was a two minute walk to the high street and less than ten minutes to the old town and the station. I would recommend staying here to anyone, thank you for a great stay.

We (5 close girlfriends) had a lovely stay in this apartment. Well equipped with comfy beds and very clean. It is a light, airy and spacious apartment in a super location. Close to fabulous shops, the sea AND above a bakery. What more could you ask for? A friendly, helpful owner.... It has that too! I would recommend to friends and couples alike.

From the apartment it is only a five-minute walk to the Promenade des Anglais, on the beach front. Likewise you only walk a couple of streets to get to the pedestrian area with restaurants and major shopping areas of Nice.

And the best: no need for a car to enjoy Nice or the rest of the Riviera. The train station is five minuts away, with direct services to the airport , Cannes,Monaco, Italy.

You have a two minute walk if you want to catch the tram way on Avenue Jean Medecin.

On the street in Alphonse Karr , less than 100m up the street there is a super market Casino open every day from 8.30am to 7.30 pm and Sunday mornings. ( the apartment is on the corner Rue Alphonse Karr and Rue Paul Derulede)

There is also another super marked on Jean Medecin, MonoPrix around 200 m from the apartment.

The shopping streets, restaurants, cafés, cinemas and boutiques are in walking distance. The apartment is on the fourth floor, just above a wonderful bakery.


On the street, if you turn around the corner and go south, you pass all the major shopping streets and restaurant area, within 5 minutes you are at the seafront. You also have other very interesting and less touristy shopping streets to explore, all not far from the apartment!

The area between the apartment and the train station contains quite a variety of all sorts of

small shops. Among others you will find a very good fish monger, on the corner of rue d’Italie/rue d’Angleterre, where you can also enjoy a fresh seafood snack for lunch. You will find several small shops with foreign food and spices, also selling fruit and vegetables late on weekdays and weekends, small local and oriental restaurants, cafés etc.

When you head right from the apartment, you will arrive within two minutes at avenue Jean Médecin. Turning left and following the tram tracks north (200-300metres), you will find another attractive area to visit. When you pass under the train bridge, a nicely restored, more local shopping street appears: avenue Malausséna. Among other stores,

there is a food store with Italian specialties and, if you care for organic food, you will find quite a big store with a good selection of organic food. There are also several clothes stores, a sushi-bar, sandwich-bars, street cafés and other restaurants in a nice, relaxed atmosphere!

At avenue Jean Médecin, turning right following the tram tracks to the south, you will arrive in another part of the city located around the square Place Garibaldi. (Place Garibaldi is located just behind the old city of Nice). On this square, also beautifully renovated, you find the most famous and oldest fresh seafood and oyster restaurant in Nice, le Café de Turin. North from this square you can also visit avenue de la République, which likewise is a newly renovated shopping street. The old city is a must, and always one of the first places to visit when you arrive in Nice. It is just lovely to stroll around through the

small narrow streets, but do remember to look up every now and again, as you will be surprised how all of a sudden you are in front of a monumental church or another impressive architectural building squeezed into these narrow streets!

Very few visitors (or locals) will miss the Cours Saleya, the famous colourful square in the old city.

Weekdays until noon, the Cours Saleya turns into a local market, also called the “flower market”. The whole square is filled with flowers, fruit and vegetables. Definitely a good place to get your fresh fruit and veggies, combined with a coffee and a croissant for breakfast. During the afternoon find a nice place to have an ice cream or coffee to rest from your excursions, and for the evening enjoy an aperitif before dinner, or go straight to the many choices of places to dine.

The port of Nice is also a beautiful place, especially in the early evening when the light makes this area particularly magic. You have the sea side, the Promenade des Anglais, along the old city and the central part of Nice where you can enjoy the sea view, the beach etc, by foot, by rollerblade or by bicycle…. (There are bicycles and rollerblades available for rent.)

There is a whole range of other activities in Nice and the areas surrounding Nice. From sun bathing, to swimming, parasailing and water scooter in the front of the city, to beautiful walks around the coastline at Cap d’Antibes, Cap Ferrat, or Cap d’Ail and Monaco. All are reachable by a short train or bus ride.

If you prefer more extreme activities, like paragliding, mountain hiking or climbing, canoeing etc. you will find several sites around an hour’s drive away from Nice by car. From Nice, the train follows the coastline, so cities like Cannes, Antibes, Villefranche, Beaulieu/ St Jean Cap Ferrat, Cap d’Ail, Monaco or the Italian Riviera are all easy to access (or by bus). In every little town you will find many different attractions: museums, restaurants, seafront areas; all well worth a visit.
