About the property

2 bedroom apartment sleeps 4, air conditioned, fully equpped including internet

A two-bedroom air conditioned apartment on the fourth floor (with lift) of a 1960's built block. The apartment has views over the city and hills, and a glimpse of the sea. It is close to central Nice and 5 minutes walk from the beach.

There are 2 double bedrooms - Bedroom 1 with 1 King size (5ft width) bed and Bedroom 2 with 2 single beds. Bothe bedrooms have a good sized wardrobe and chest of drawers.

The large living room has French doors onto the terrace which enjoys wide views over the city and hills beyond. It is furnished with modern glass top table, 2 sofas and an easy chair. Internet access, multi-channel TV and phone are all provided, and we have a good stock of books and games.

A dining area with fitted table and chairs leads into the fully fitted and equipped kitchen. This includes a 4 ring electric ceramic hob; full size oven; a separate microwave oven; a large free-standing fridge-freezer and a range of cupboards.

The bathroom has a bath with shower; marble top double basins; and bidet. There is a separate toilet with a wash basin. All linen is included. A designated parking space is available in the gated private car park.

Eating and drinking in Nice: Le Nice is just 5 minutes away from a variety of shops and small supermarkets, including many boulangeries (independent bakeries). Nice like the rest of France maintains high standards of food for sale, both in the supermarkets, small corner shops and the markets themselves. The supermarkets are generally open till 8.00p.m. and on Sunday mornings; the bakeries will provide for your morning croissants and baguettes, lunch time sandwishes and snacks and evening treats!

The apartment is about ten minutes walk from the pedestrian zone of the Rue de France, where you will be spoilt for choice in restaurants of all types. There are numerous cafes along the Promenade des Anglais - and on the beach itself! The Cours Saleya in Nice’s Old Town is both the famous flower market, hosts the ‘Marche Provencal’, with all manner of local products and delicacies, and has a superb range of eateries and places to sit in the sun and watch the crowds pass by.

What to do in Nice: Nice is a ‘city by the sea’ with all the facilities of both. The beaches are within 10 minutes walk from the apartment, and you have an extensive choice whether you want the facilities of a private beach, for which you will pay a daily fee; or are prepared to take your luck on the public plages.

The Promenade des Anglais is literally that and affords easy walking - or cycling, in-line skating - for several kilometres in both directions. You can walk round to the Port of Nice where luxury yachts tie up, and the ferries leave for Corsica, or for a variety of shorter trips up and down the coast.

The Riviera has long been a haunt of and inspiration to artists, and there are numerous large and small galleries and museums in Nice and in the surrounding towns.

Access: The apartment is about 10 minutes by Taxi from Nice Cote d’Azur Airport (or there are local buses); and a similar distance from the train station. Nice is France’s second busiest airport and receives direct flights from all over the world, including all major UK airports, European capitals and daily fights from New York.

You can also travel to Nice easily by express train from Paris, which connects with the Eurostar from London.

The A8 Autoroute from Marseilles via Cannes has a junction by the airport and if you are coming by car it is just 10 minutes drive from there.

Nice is close to the French Italian border – travel to Italy is easy by road (car or bus) and by rail.

About Su Kingsley

We are a British couple in our 60's and we bought the apartment to have 'a place in the sun'. It has certainly proved to be that, and we spend 10 - 12 weeks a year in the apartment enjoying Nice and exploring its environs. One of the advantages of coming back to the same place time and time again is that we have got to know neighbours and other occasional visitors here, so its always a pleasure to meet up with friends again when we come.

When we're not using the apartment ourselves we make it available for renting - and we hope our guests find it as comfortable as we do. We've rented many holiday apartments ourselves so we know what its like to find your feet in a strange place - and we've tried to equip the apartment so that it is a 'home from home' for our guests. We're always open to suggestions and ideas for improvement - but most people seem to lke it just the way it is!

Su Kingsley purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Su Kingsley chose Nice

Well, we came to Nice on our way to visit friends in France and just fell in love wth the city. For us it is the perfect combination of the buzz and activity of city life with the fresh sea air and views. So the next year we came back and started to property hunt in earnest! When we saw this apartment we loved the airiness and spaciousness of the open plan living room, the wide terrace with room to sit and relax in the sun, and the quiet environment that is still only minutes from the city centre and the sea front.

'Just had a wonderful time...the apartment, its got everything and the information file is so helpful and extremely thoughtful'

'Came for a holiday, bought a property! Future 'locataires' beware - staying in this fabulous apartment can be dangerous to your financial situation.'

An ideal holiday base

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed in this apartment last year and were very pleased to return. It was as light, spacious and comfortable as we remembered, and very well-equipped. The owners’ agent, Julian, is available if any problems arise, which is reassuring. The sliding glass doors in the kitchen and lounge give excellent views across the bay, particularly at night.

The apartment is within easy walking distance of the Promenade des Anglais and a number of buses going to the station, port or along the coast, so it is possible to travel around quite easily without using a car.

Happy to recommend this apartment, as it provides a peaceful location not far from the centre of Nice and allows easy access to the surrounding area.

Owner's Response: We were delighted to welcome you back again and so glad you enjoyed, appreciated and looked after our apartment. We always enjoy exploring the local area ourselves and public transport makes it easy to get to many places - although there are also beautiful and dramatic sites inland where a car is helpful, and many guests find our car park space included in the rental an added bonus!

An idealic stay at Le Nice, Baumettes

  • 5 of 5

From our first enquiry the owners were very quick to respond and positive with all our questions. We chose this apartment as we thought all the photographs were very impressive, the balcony looked fabulous and the description was just perfect. The apartment was even more than we ever imagined, as soon as the door to the apartment was opened we were just amazed, the room sizes all fabulous. The meet and greet with Julian was perfect, he explained all we needed to know.

The apartment was very clean and well provided in the kitchen.

We would definitely recommend the apartment to a friend and to anyone who reads this review they will not be disappointed. We would hope to go again.

When writing our comments in the Visitors Book, there were a number of guests who had returned on many occasions.

Well done to Su and Owen, just perfect. Thank you.

Owner's Response: We're so pleased our guests enjoyed their stay in our apartment and found it 'more than imagined'. We've stayed in many self-catering places ourselves and we wanted our own place to be like home - comfortable and well equipped. We spend time there regularly ourselves, so we make sure there is everything we need, and hope that our guests find the same. Julian, our agent, is brilliant and is our 'secret ingredient'!

Excellent property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in this apartment. We chose it because of it's location, size and top floor balcony location. It was very clean and well equipped and the location didn't disappoint. A nice distance from the town centre - about 30 minute walk, which is what we are used to doing for our stroll into our local town centre - but of course the warmer weather even in late October made it a lovely walk !!

We were welcomed by a representative of the owners who was really friendly and he had waited longer for us because we were delayed in bad traffic. He explained all the features and keys etc., and it was a lovely touch to have a few breakfast items, tea, coffee and milk (and a couple of beers :-) waiting for us in the fridge !!

We particularly loved the balcony and enjoyed having breakfast in the morning sunshine which bathes the balcony. Although there is a similar height property just across the road we still enjoyed the views beyond of the old town and a glimpse of the mediterranean :-)

It was great to have secure parking and we felt very secure in the apartment in general - sufficiently secure that we didn't feel the need to use the safe.

We would certainly recommend the apartment to others (but perhaps I shouldn't because we want to go again so don't want to make it too popular :-)

A lovely apartment in a great location. Very comfortable for the four of us.
