About the property

Beautiful newly renovated flat with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, A/C and WiFi

Old town charm meets modern Parisian chic at Moulin-sur-Mer. A beautiful, newly renovated and spacious air-conditioned, WIFI equipt, three bedroom, two bathroom luxury apartment that comfortably sleeps six guests.

Moulin-sur-Mer is ideally situated in Nice’s historic Old Town, with cafes, provençal markets, and al fresco dining nightly, and less than 5 minutes stroll to the azure-blue mediteranean beaches that border the famous Promenade des Anglais. It is also conveniently close to Nice’s airport shuttle bus, tramway and SNCF train stations.

Located on Rue du Moulin, a quiet pedestrian street, and situated on the third floor of a traditional Niçoise Old Town building. The apartment has just been completely renovated and refurbished by a Parisian Interior Designer. Care has been taken to preserve its beautiful traditional features such as marble mantle places and ornate cornices while transforming the apartment into a designer home away from home. Moulin-sur-mer benefits from being flooded with natural light through its many traditional Niçoise shuttered windows and from having a lovely wraparound balcony on which you can enjoy an aperitif while watching the world go by in the little french square below. Staying in this apartment you will be in the heart of it all, yet maintain great privacy and intimacy.

Moulin-sur-Mer offers you a gourmet kitchen complete a Nespresso machine and dishwasher, comfortable beds with luxury white linens and an inviting dining area where you can enjoy cooking up a feast using fresh ingredients from the local provençal market.

The apartment has high-speed WiFi, cable TV with 165+ channels and 26 HD, TV Samsung Ultra HD Display, 40″ Screen, Smart TV, Quad Core Processor, Smart Hub, DVD/Blue Ray player and a SoundTouch™ 20 Series II Wi-Fi® music system. We also provide bath towels and someone to welcome you and show you around (concierge service).

Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is absolutely immaculate, with real attention to detail right down to fresh flowers.

The decor and furnishings are first class, and the layout of the apartment makes for a really comfortable stay.

We have been coming to Nice every year for the past few years, and this is most certainly the best apartment we have rented. The fact that it situated in the Old Town, but is quiet at night, makes it even more impressive.

We will be recommending it to our friends.

Beautiful apartment with a real great address.

  • 5 of 5

It is such a great residential and so functional, we were 4 adults and to kids, lots of space for all (inclusive play areas).

We felt so welcome, Helle & Benny

A minor thing - your name should be downstairs, we were a little unsure, if we had found the right spot.

Fantastiskt boende med bästa läge i gamla Nice

  • 5 of 5

Tack för ett fantastiskt bra boende i gamla Nice! Och tack för bra information och mailkontakt innan resan. Vi har varit 4 kollegor som delat denna mycket fräscha, rena och rymliga lägenhet som ju mycket väl rymmer 6 personer. Allt fungerade perfekt och lägenheten var välutrustad med både tvätt- och diskmaskin. Mycket bättre boende än hotell! Helt tyst i lägenheten trots att flera fina restauranger ligger alldeles nära. Gott om utrymme och en ljus och fin köksdel/vardagsrum där det är trevligt att äta frukost och samlas en stund på kvällen. Två badrum! Bageri alldeles nedanför lägenheten så att man kan få nybakat bröd till frukost. Nere vid havet efter mindre än 5 minuters promenad. Gångavstånd till det mesta och spårvagnslinjen ligger bara ett kvarter bort. Favoritrestaurangen "Le Bar des Oiseaux" 50 meter bort (boka bord!). Vill man ha stans bästa utsikt och se solnedgången går man till hotel Aston La Scala (som man ser på andra sidan parken när man kommit upp till spårvagnsspåret) och åker upp till deras takterrass där man kan ta ta något att dricka innan kvällens restaurangbesök. Bor gärna i denna lägenhet igen!

wonderful week in Nice in a great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for this wonderful week in your perfectly designed apartment. It was always a pleasure to return from a beach day or from visiting the old city which is just around you. Claire and Ivan are wonderful, they explained everything, the equipment in every room is perfect and we liked it to have a very fine bakery in the basement. We will return. Thanks for everything, Regina and Reinhold

I wish I had more time to stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was even nicer than the pictures. It had everything we needed for the 5 nights. When we met with Claire she gave us a thorough understanding of the apartments features and left us a nice bottle of wine from the region to get our holidays started. Such a warm welcome was unexpected but much appreciated. It was also great that we were able to set up getting picked up from the airport ahead of time. It made the transition from the airport to the apartment seamless.

The apartment layout was fantastic as the bedrooms were separated from the living area. It was nice to have 3 bathrooms as we were 5 adults. (3 Canadians & 2 Finns) Thank goodness for the A/C too as it was up to 40 degrees Celsius while we were there. The ultimate though was opening up the balcony doors in the morning and smelling the fresh baking coming from the stores below us.

The location was absolutely the best. We were able to walk everywhere: to the beach, all sorts of restaurants, sightseeing, shopping, etc. It was all easily accessible. We were also able to get on a tram to the train station and off we went to visit Cannes one day and then Menton and Monacco on another. It was a great base to see the area.

I only wish I had more days there to explore even more. I've already recommended staying here to friends and family. If, no when, I'm back in Nice this would be the place I'd like to stay again. Thank you to Ivan and Claire for a wonderful first experience in France. It started our 4 week French holiday off with a bang.

A great apartment in the heart of Nice.

  • 5 of 5

Comments from a Spanish family with five members who spent a week in this apartment.

The apartment has all the amenities you can expect: excellent beds to rest, air conditioning in all bedrooms and in the living room, fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, etc. No objection to this. On the other hand, the situation of the apartment is great. You wake up in the morning with the smell of fresh bread or croissants, bakery is in the basement of the building. You are in the “Vieux Vielle” of Nice, with a friendly atmosphere by day and by night and a five minutes from the beach. Each day can have breakfast in a different place or buy bread and food to take home to many sites. Of course you have many restaurants nearby for lunch or dinner. But besides this, you are very close to the most modern Nice, with a tramway stop next that can leave you at the Nice train station in five minutes, with all the coast from Cannes to Ventimiglia in Italy connected by train . You also have lines buses near, to Eze, Monaco, Cap Ail, Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, Cannes, etc. Finally transfer from airport to apartment or vice versa and custody of luggage easily organized by an agency that is very close to the apartment.

I totally recommend this apartment to travelers who want to spend a few days or weeks in Nice. Claire, the owner, is an excellent host and the whole process of renting the apartment is done with great transparency.
