Updated: 18-Oct-2016

This is a super F1 apartment located in the Musician’s quarter of Nice. The apartment is very light and quiet and is situated on the seventh floor of the building with views from the terrace to the east and north hills of Nice. The front door of the building is situated on the vibrant Boulevard Gambetta. On this street you will find many shops, supermarkets, artisan bread makers, cafes, restaurants and thanks to the affluence of the surrounding area it can sustain an indoor market. You are a 10 minute walk from the apartment front door to lying on the beach and a 15 minute walk to the main train station.

The kitchen is fully equipped, there is a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, electric oven and hob. There are sliding doors off the kitchen on to the terrace, there is also the main sliding doors from the living room area onto the terrace. The two sets of doors connect the living room and kitchen space very well enabling the space to function as one.

The terrace is spacious and has views over the Musician’s quarter with views to the east and north hills of Nice. The seventh floor location offers a gentle breeze to circulate which is needed in the warmer summer period.

The main living space is clean and fresh and there is a television and wifi. The bedroom area is separated adjacent the main living area, there is a double bed, wardrobe and drawers.

The bathroom is off the hall way and is very spacious, there is a bath with overhead shower, toilet and bidet.

About the Owner

Hi, we fell in love with Nice many years a ago and particularly the Gambetta / Musician's area and enjoyed the area so much we bought our property, we hope you enjoy it too. The property just went onto the rental market - June 2015 and we look forward to sharing it with you. The apartment is frequently used by our family, its very much our home from home. Claire or Christophe will meet you to orientate and settle you into the flat. If you have any questions about the flat or the area please ask them on arrival. We hope you have a lovely time in Nice. Thank you for choosing our apartment, enjoy.

Our stay in Nice

  • 4 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at the apartment. The location was great with a 10 minute walk from the beach and the train station. There were also lots of supermarkets near by to buy food.

The apartment was extremely clean upon arrival and the facilities were fantastic.

Nice is a fantastic place and I would definitely recommend this apartment to stay in when visiting.

Summer in Nice Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very clean, bright. It was bigger than we expected and it had everything we needed and more for a comfortable stay. The bed was very comfortable. It had a bigger than expected balcony. We were met promptly and shown around the apartment. The dishwasher and washing machine was a welcome surprise. Plenty of adapter plugs and sockets. I would recommend this property as a comfortable holiday apartment. We enjoyed the local bars and restaurants and the friendly staff in the bakery just around the corner.

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely and well equipped. It was clean and as it looks in the photos. The booking process was simple and Gary was great if we had any questions. It's an easy walk to the beach and about 15 minutes to the Old Town. There's a supermarket and bakery across the street and restaurants in the area.

Great apartment in Nice

  • 5 of 5

Easy to find a ideal location, The beach one way the town of Nice another way train station the other way all about 10 minutes walk. The apartment it self was clean and tidy fully equipped with sun to the balcony in the morning to enjoy coffee. The owner was very helpful when booking with plenty of advice with useful information to download to help get around and get from the airport to the apartment. All in all easy to do business with.

Lovely, clean property in an excellent location. The apartment was a great size and had everything we needed for a week's very enjoyable stay. Gary was lovely and so helpful, and made us feel really welcome as well as providing us with lots of useful information. The apartment is in a fab location - lots of shops around, including a marvellous little bakery just across the street (we had croissants for breakfast every morning on the balcony!) and only a short walk into the Old Town, or to the station to get the train to places. Really helpful little guide in the flat as well. Absolutely loved our stay and will definitely come again! Thank you :)

Lovely apartment, excellent holiday!

  • 4 of 5

Had an excellent week in Nice. The flat was lovely, homely, modern and beautifully light. It was well equipped and had all the facilities we needed. Booking was easy. Gary was prompt in all his replies to us and gave good information about transport links from the airport etc. Arrival arrangements were very flexible which suited us as we arrived in the morning. Christine met us at the apartment with the keys and gave us all the information we needed. Gary had also left a folder in the flat which again was very useful. Location excellent for us, within walking distance of everything we wanted to see and do. All in all an excellent holiday and lovely apartment. Thank you.

From the Owner

If you want to be close to the beach, the shopping area, the old town and the train station but still have a quiet restful holiday, then this is a perfect choice for you.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Nice Airport at 8 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Numerous Nearest Ferry : Nice Port at 3 Kilometres Nearest Train : Thiers, Nice at 700 Metres Nearest Motorway : Voie Pierre Mathis at 0.4 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Numerous Nearest Beach : Promenade des Anglais at 500 Metres Car: not necessary

The Boulevard Gambetta is lively with Nicoise life going on all around. There are many shops, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets the length of the Gambetta. If you spend time to stop and people watch you will notice the community interacting and you obtain a sense of a functioning community around you. The apartment's main entrance opens directly onto the Boulevard Gambetta but the apartment overlooks the very quiet Musicians quarter. The best of both worlds.

We prefer to access Nice by Velo Bleu a rent-a-bike scheme with many stops and pick up points across the whole city. The closest pick up station is directly opposite the flat. The buses are inexpensive and run frequently with many stops on and just off of the Gambetta. There are trams that cross certain aspects of the city and Thiers the main train station is a 15 minute walk for trips to Grasse, Monte Carlo and other locations across the Riviera. You could hire a car but we don’t find Nice a great city for a car with so many other more convenient options.

If you prefer there are the Blue Velo bike’s, in which case everything above is less than 8 minutes away. The apartment is spacious and well equipped to make you stay comfortable.
