About the property

Stunning mezzanine apartment 100m from Promenade Des Anglais

This apartment is located at the edge of the Carre D'or area of Nice. It is 100m from the Promenade Des Anglais and is approximately 100m to a most famous hotel in Nice, the Negresco. It is a 5min walk to the Pietonne(pedestrian) area of Nice with all its shops and restaurants, a 10 min walk to Place Massena/Ave Jean Medecin where all the big department stores are located. Nice's Old Town is a 12-15 min walk away. So the location of this apartment is ideal! It is also a 10 min walk to the Train Station which is a gateway to Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, Italy etc. For trips to Grasse and St Paul De Vence there is a bus stop just outside the apartment. The main bus station Gare Routiere is a 20 min walk away for buses to Eze, Monaco, Menton etc.There is a small supermarket, bakery, pharmacy and internet cafe all right beside the apt and this can all be handy when you first arrive! While the apt does sleep 4, it would be most comfortable for a couple +/- children.

The apartment is located on the first floor of a 3 storey ,beautifully refurbished , old french building. There is a lift in the building which makes transporting luggage and pushchairs very easy!

Check in for the apartment is 3pm on the day of arrival and 11 am on day of departure unless otherwise previously agreed by the owner.

For weekly rentals during July/August, the changeover day will be Saturday.

1-3 monthly rentals during Winter months of November-February considered at a cost of 500 euro per month.

Review of Nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a great holiday made possible by the wonderful location of this apartment. Facilities within the apartment also well thought-out, clean and the owner has thought of everything. Small apartment but v. manageable for a couple plus young baby. So close to the sea, the shops and the old town, plus fantastic wee supermarkets nearby to get all the essentials. Owner, Claire, provided an excellent service and was very helpful with any requests we had, including helping to make our travel arrangements easy. Highly recommended.

Absolutely, Adorable Apartment ! Claire Rocks !

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully designed and decorated apartment; full of personality; as is Claire. You can see the thoughtfulness, painstaking care, and love that went in to create this sweet, sublime getaway. Absolutely everything you need is here; and more. All the amenities x 10 ! Beds are beyond comfy. Le chauffage est très awesome ! Even a petit chauffage in the bathroom; so super warm and toasty that sometimes I didn't want to leave. This truly is a home away from home. The charismatic realtor, Dorine, is a total sweetheart and an absolute gem ! I cannot speak highly enough of her. The sweet apartment is centrally ensconced in Nice; very, very safe neighborhood. I'd say just a two or three minute walk; maybe faster, if you walk like me; to the world famous promenade anglais, and the stretch of gorgeous beaches, for as far as the eyes can see. (sea) This is not an Alfred Hitchcock tale but, yes, bien sûr, I was circled by at least a hundred birds when I brought my day old breads to the plage. My favorite boulangerie is just a hop skip and a jump from the cozy apartment and I always had almond croissant or chocolate twist written all over my face. Yes, guilty as charged ! Now I would truly be remiss if I forgot to mention the delectable Russian cuisine is just a throw's distance from this cute chalet. When I call Nice my home; this is where I want to be. I haven't even discussed all the islands, museums, restaurants, (poulet et noix du coco ! #yum !) monasteries, festivals, parks and faire du shopping so close by or a short, inexpensive bus ride away. Even Italy is a hop skip and a jump. As I look through the guestbook at Claire's place, I see the outpouring, overwhelming sentiment, from travelers all over the world, is quite the same as mine; this is just a wonderful, fabulous, fun place to stay. The best compliment I can give is that when I am in the south of France this is where I want to be. Now, I saved the best part for last. Wait for it. Wait for it. C-l-a-i-r-e !!! I mentioned her briefly early on but I can wax rhapsodic and sing her praises all day long. Claire is platinum; she is twenty-four karat; she is a diamond ! She is truly one of the kindest, most thoughtful, selfless people I have ever encountered. I will run out of English superlatives so please indulge me : Incroyable ! Surprenant ! Magnifique ! Coming full circle; simple stated : Claire totally rocks !!! :@)

Apartment is in a superb location for exploring Nice - it is very well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay most enjoyable! Even has a Nespresso machine! Claire has gone to great lengths to make sure her guests have all they need to get the best experience of the Cotes d'azur! Maps, guidebooks & an extensive restaurant guide helped us plan every detail of our trip! The Carrefour supermarket is just around the corner & the boulangerie just a few doors down! We hired bikes & segway on the promenade which is only a few minutes from the apartment! We would DEFINITELY recommend it ALL ....and we would love to go back again sometime! Fabulous wee break away!

Fantastic five month stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous apartment in the most brilliant location in Nice, a very short stroll from the Promenade and within easy distance of the main shopping centre and Old Town. I stayed here for five months, and it had everything I could possibly need to make my stay comfortable. It has been cleverly designed to maximise the amount of usable space, and I would definitely recommend it to a couple or anyone wanting a relaxed, easy stay with all the conveniences of being able to self-cater.

Great Location, cute apartment

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at Claire's and it was a perfect apartment for the two of us. It is 10 minute walking distance from the Nice train station and 15 minutes to Old Town. We walked everywhere while we were there except for when we went out of town.

The apartment was well equipped and Maja who greeted us there was very helpful. If we ever go back to Nice we will definitely stay at Claire's.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We went to Nice In May (2012) and I am so glad I found this apartment! It is in a fantastic location - most parts of Nice are within easy walking distance and there are loads of restaurants (and shops!) nearby. The beach and Promenade are a mere 5 mins walk away (if that!).

This is the perfect sized apartment for two people and Claire has worked hard to fit in everything you will need, including lots of DVDs and books. There are also lots of guidebooks and local information included in the welcome pack, as well as an extremely useful restaurant guide, which has recommendations from Claire and previous guests - we found this to be a valuable resource! The agent, Maja, was very friendly and helpful and the apartment was spotless when we arrived.

There is a very good bakery a couple of doors down (excellent for breakfast treats!) and several supermarkets and convenience stores close by. There is even a wine shop directly opposite!

I would definitely recommend this apartment and we had very good customer service. Queries were answered promptly and we also received some excellent recommendations for things to do. Claire also provided directions from the airport and a bus time table which was incredibly useful.

Activity wise I would recommend visiting the old castle, which provides some fabulous views over Nice (and watch out for the canon at 12 noon!). We also enjoyed wandering the lanes of the old part of Nice.
