About the property

125msq, 3 bedroom, 1 ensuite, 2.5 bathrooms, living room, kitchen/dining

This magnificent Belle Epoque apartment in a former Palace has just undergone a major refurbishment and is now a successful merger of old world French elegance and luxurious modernity. Flooded with natural light, this bright spacious corner apartment is offered fully equipped with all modern conveniences to ensure you have a comfortable stay, including Egyptian cotton linen, free wifi, plenty of tourist information and recommendations so you can hit the ground running. It is located in the Carre D'or, which is the most desirable and prestigious neighbourhood in Nice and is a most sought after location for holiday rentals. Designer shopping, the pedestrianised zone and the beach are on your doorstep as well as some of the best patisseries and restaurants in the country. This apartment is a home from home in Nice and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful vacation in Nice. Your apartment was perfect and there was everything we needed.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Elegant apt!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 - adult children and this apartment was magnifique! The location is right near the promenade, cafes and shops. Mary is a great host and Val was very responsive and flexible when our train arrived late the day of arrival. Plus the goodies were delightful!

I would book this again in a heartbeat and wouldn't hesitate recommending - it's pristine clean and has all amenities including an umbrella (which unfortunately we needed) and beach chair/towels (which fortunately we also needed!).

Feels like a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the booking was very quick and easy. Mary has it all figured out with bank accounts, Paypal for deposits etc. The information about the flat and the area was fantastic - a 36 page document telling us all about where to eat, park, drink wine, shop .... well, the lot!

We were six adults staying in the flat. It worked perfectly - the walls are thick, the doors tight and even though some people stayed up late playing games or some waking up early making breakfast, we never disturbed each other. The linens were incredibly comfortable and we slept very well - except some nights when the noise outside was a bit much. Due to the Nice marathon they must have rerouted the traffic, meaning "our" street became a bit noisy. After the marathon it was quieter, for sure.

The only thing I would advice against, is to go here when it is really warm. We stayed here in late April (temperature around 20 degrees C), and the flat became a bit warm during the day. In the summer it must be very hot, and one could tell since we found at least 4 electrical fans in the flat.

We loved our stay and would recommend this place to anyone. Especially for a group of friends or a larger family. Clean, beautiful, perfectly "worn" so one does not feel the need to "tip-toe" around antiques, fully equipped with all you need (and a bit more). Just great!

I loved our stay at this beautiful apartment, my family and I were so amazed how perfect everything was. The apartment was very spacious , and looked as it did in the pictures. The location is just were you want to be, two blocks to the beach and walking distance to all the great restaurants. Mary was wonderful to work with, she responded to any questions immediately . This was a dream come true for all of us!!!I would recommend Mary's place and if I can ever come back to Nice, this is where I'm staying. Thank you Mary for letting us enjoy your home. Lisa Kerr

Perfect Location and Wonderful Spacious Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our 6 day stay in this apartment was absolutely wonderful. From the secured entry way, the quaint elevator, and the entrance to the apartment takes you back in time. This is truly an upscale place to stay. This apartment has all of the comforts of home. Apt is very, very clean. Our hostess was wonderful and properly showed us how each appliance worked and was available by e-mail or text if we needed anything.

We loved the comfort, safety, closeness to everything around us. Approx. 15 minute walk to the train station. 20 minutes to the hub of shopping, 3 blocks from the sea. We walked everywhere. Always felt safe and just simply enjoyed the people who were so kind to help us.

Be sure to make a trip up to the park called Castle Hill that oversees all sides of Nice. What a view!!!! Favorite place to be on a beautiful day.

I wish to give this apartment five (5) stars because it deserves each and every star.

Truly wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described, pure luxury. The location, layout and facilities were superb. The apartment was spotless and very well maintained. Dealing with the owner and her manager was a pleasure. We were given an itinerary of all amenities nearby, we experienced some of them and they were excellent. I would highly recommend this apartment

Lovely Nice Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is our second visit to Nice and our second time renting from Mary. The apartment is absolutely fabulous. We stayed with another couple with 4 small children and the apartment was perfect for our needs. We thought it was spotless, incredibly comfortable and easily accommodated us all. We were once again met by Valerie, Mary's contact in Nice, who kindly helped get us set up and offered to help with anything we needed. The apartment is perfectly placed, close to the beach near the shopping and a block from a park.
