About Penny

We are a family of doctors and medical professionals, except me, I am a designer and businesswoman! We live in the UK and simply love the South of France

Penny purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Penny chose Nice

Visited with family on a birthday and fell in love with the region.What is not to like? Blue sea, all year sun, stunning coastal scenary and charming perched villages! A dream for art and culture lovers, glamour, gastronomy you have it all here.

Lo and behold on my following birthday, got this flat as a gift from my hubby, so it is very special indeed for the family to enjoy and share with the most wonderful guests we have had from Peru to Sydney and China to name just a few far flung destinations!

What makes this apartment unique

In a French chic area, yet so central. Just 10 minutes walk to the beach and lovely markets.You can truly sample life on the French Riviera and go to the bakeries and restaurants frequented by locals.

Just walk everywhere and lose yourself in this beautiful as well as vibrant city. Enjoy!!

Trains and buses conveniently located only minutes from our apartment, for visiting numerous perched villages, and towns nearby including into Italy for lovely days out.

Nice made easy



We stayed at this apartment in September this year and found it to be as advertised meeting all our requirements with a fantastic Art Deco lift. The apartment was ideally placed for travelling around the area to Antibes and Menton for example by train as the station was a short walk away. The buses were good as well for getting to places like Vence and other areas of Nice. Walking about from the apartment was great as the old town and the beach were all readily available. There were some great food markets close by and a brilliant bakers just downstairs,all in all a very good place to stay and an ideal location.

The owner and her agent were both very helpful and punctual with all responses, so enabling us to have a stress free holiday, thank you. We would stay again if we returned to Nice and recommend to friends and family.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a really great apartment with about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Nice small balcony towards the street (blvd Gambetta) and the bedrooms are located in the rear. We didn´t cook any food. Penny (the owner) was very helpful before and during our stay and Samir (local contact) took care of us during our stay:

Would definitely stay here again and can recommend this apartment. Thanks!

great location, lovely appartment.

  • 4 of 5

This is a really great appt. Everything you need for a short stay is available, and dealing with Penny was simple, she was very helpful. The appt is very clean and all furnishings are in excellent order. A small welcome pack was handy. It is a 10 min walk to the beach and the main shopping street. The supermarket across the street was adequate for most things. Rossini Restaurant had really good food and big portions. Boulangerie downstairs ideal for pastries etc.

TIPS: taxi from the airport 34 euros. The Bus no 99 is 6 euros each inc. kids. takes 15 mins.

The train station is a few minutes walk. To buy tickets easily go to an office at the far end called Sou, the ticket machines are a bit confusing. Remember to validate your tickets in the station in the small yellow readers,. It cost £25 for 2 adults and 2 kids to Monaco.

All in all excellent I highly recommend this Appt.

Stylish apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very conveniently located in the Musiciens area of Nice close to Nice Ville station, buses, and supermarkets. Indeed, the 99 airport bus drops off at the Franklin stop just a couple of minutes from the apartment.

The apartment is well equipped with excellent air conditioning and a modern bathroom and kitchen. The lift is a godsend after tiring days out and you can relax in front of the TV watching Netflix for free!

Would definitely stay again.

Car: not necessary

The location for this apartment is superb and central. It is only 8 to10 minutes walk from the beach, the famous Promanade des Anglais.The bus (No 23 from Terminal 1, costs only 1Euro ) to and from the airport stops within 50 meters of the apartment. The direct airport bus (No99) which wizzes you to the airport in 15 minutes also stops minures away.All the local amenities including a colourful indoor market, brasseries, boulangeries and patisseries are on the doorstep. Old Nice is also a pleasant walk through pedestrianised and interesting roads. The Gare SNCF train station is 7 minutes walk making those day trips to Cannes and Monaco to mention just a few attractions so easy! No need for car hire or taxis as superb and convenient public transport links! As you are in a chic french area, also close to the beach, you have the best of both worlds. Not directly on the busy and noisy promenade, but central enough to explore all of Nice on foot.

Other Activities: french cookery classes
