About the property

One bedroom with mezzanine, accommodates four. Air conditioning, TV and wifi.

We bought it for 'us'. It's on the top floor - no lift - of a building occupied by 'Nicois' so you are really living where the locals live. We've tried to combine the old with the new, retaining the original 200 year old tomettes (floor tiles) and gnarled, timber beams but taking advantage of the conveniences of a modern kitchen and bathroom - and air conditioning! It's quiet, light and airy and there's plenty of room for four, plus a mezzanine in the bedroom that has a CD player and is an ideal area to 'chill out'. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, micro-wave, fridge freezer and washing machine. In the lounge there is cable TV and DVD player (plus a selection of DVD's, CD's and books) and free Wifi internet connection. If you don't fancy cooking you're spoilt with the choice of the superb range of restaurants just outside your door! Look at the photos for the rest... we don't think you'll be disappointed

Extremely, comfortable, well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in Nice. Found the apartment well situated and comfortable. The only concern was the stairs but as we usually were out the whole day did not have to go up and down them too many times.

Owner's Response: Thanks Bea. Glad all went well and have to admit that, now we're in our late seventies, even we don't leap up and down the stairs quite so easily! Hope to see you again.

Fabulous stay, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had an amazing 3 day stay in this charming home away from home. The apartment is exactly as the photos and description portray it. We loved the warm "feel" of it and the tasteful decor. The location was ideal, as we enjoyed the intimate neighbourhood vibe of the old city. All the amenities were appreciated (especially the power adapter needed for our devices). The place was clean and tidy and very well stocked with all that we needed. Bottled water and food basics were an added nice touch. Comfy bed, as well!

The entire experience was effortless from start to finish. Ken was quick to respond to my inquiries and was extremely helpful in guiding me through our first HomeAway endeavour. Anne Marie, the friendly property manager, met us at the apartment and showed us all we needed to know. Both Ken and Anne Marie were easy to contact and eager to make our stay enjoyable.

Having been to Nice a number of times, I would definitely recommend staying in the old city, as it offers a wonderful old world charm and a colourful, Mediterranean joie de vie. This apartment embodies the Nicoiçe experience. Local restaurants are affordable, with fantastic food. Shopping was convenient. Ice cream was delicious and the neighbourhood felt inviting and safe, both day and night. I'm already planning my next stay here!

Good location, and accommodation as stated on the website.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment had everything stated on the website, it was in a very convenient position, reasonable quiet considering the area, and suited our needs for the period of time we were staying there. The facilities and decor are getting a little tired, but not out of place in an old building.

Owner's Response: Thanks Joy. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We purposely try to retain the eclectic mix of 'ancient and modern' in keeping with the two hundred-odd year old building and 'Old Town' atmosphere. However, we appreciate and will take note of your comments. As you say, one of the greatest assets is the closeness to all facilities including shops and restaurants, transport services and - of course - the beach. We very much hope to see you again sometime in the future.

Great apartment in the heart of the old town.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a lovely holiday at this apartment in old town Nice. Being strangers to Nice we soon discovered we were in the best spot to enjoy the city. The old town is buzzing night and day, although we never found it too noisy. The area gives a real French experience with lots of eateries, shops and bars close by. The beach was also within easy walking (about 10 mins).

We found the apartment clean and comfortable. On our arrival we were met by the housekeeper Anne Marie who was very sweet giving us basic instructions on use of the air con, telly, washing machine etc.

The apartment is at the top of the building, so there are a lot of stairs up - but this added to its charm. Our only quibble was that we were there during very hot weather and found the air con not fantastic. Aside from that this is a super spot and well worth a visit.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Ian and we're delighted you had a good time in Nice. Most people have found the air-con copes with the hot weather OK but thanks for the comment and we'll check it out to make sure it's operating fully. Hope to see you again sometime in the future.

Stayed there once before. Hopefully again next year. Well equipped, spacious, clean, well maintained, has everything you need, close to bus stops, train station and beech. Hundreds of restaurants to chose from. Great location.

In a superb position, Rue Pairoliere is one of the main, pedestrianised shopping streets of the Old Town, where people come to shop from all over Nice. Tram and bus stops are just two minutes away with express coach connections direct to and from the airport (20 mins); the Museum of Modern Art, Natural History Museum and Acropolis Exhibition Centre all within easy walking distance. The Old Town houses many historical and beautiful buildings including the Opera, Palais de Justice, Lascaris Palace and the Cathedral Saint-Reparate on the famous Place Rossetti. The ancient Chateau on the hill provides stunning views over the Baie des Anges. From the port you can take ferries to Corsica, Saint Tropez and other destinations - or can just admire the yachts of the rich and famous. From the bus station - for just €1.50 - take a trip to Cannes, Monaco, Antibes or even up into the mountains to ski during the winter months! The daily markets on the Cours Salaya and the beach are just minutes away.

Other Activities: catch a ski bus (2 minutes away) up to the mountains

Ski: Take a bus (from outside the railway station) to Valberg or Isola 2000 - just 1.50€ each way - and ski for the day or stay for a couple of nights! The journey takes about one and a half hours through spectacular scenery and is worth the trip even if you don't ski!
