Apartment in Nice, Cote d'Azur - Home from Home - Everything you require on your doorstep

Situated in the heart of Nice, on the French Riviera, our apartment is available to rent all year round allowing you, your family and friends to share and experience the Cote d'Azur. Comfortably accommodating four people (with a sofa-bed in lounge which can sleep a further two), the attractive apartment retains many original Art Deco features such as wooden floors and ornate ceilings. Our aim is to create a home from home - somewhere you can arrive and settle into quickly, allowing you the freedom to enjoy your holiday in comfort. The apartment is found in the heart of the "quartier des musiciens" of Nice. With corner views and first floor location, you can open the French doors and 'watch the world go by' from the small balcony. For those needing easy access, or who have bags of shopping, there is a lift.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Patricia and Joe made the booking and check-in process very easy. Their host Grace was able to arrange a private transfer from the airport as we had a late flight which was much appreciated especially with small children. We had a warm welcome and basic supplies and some treats were left for us on arrival. The apartment was lovely on the first floor of an art deco building. It was well decorated in a traditional French style. Both double bedrooms had adequate storage space and had air-conditioning units in each one. The kitchen was well appointed although we only really prepared breakfast here. The shower was powerful and there was an abundance of hot water and loads of towels which was a major plus. There was also a cupboard full of beach gear which came in very handy. The apartment was located very close to the train station making day trips easy. Antibes is recommended! Main shopping street, beach, tram, 3 bars and restaurants can all be accessed on foot from the apartment. Bakery, fruit and veg shop and grocery store are on your doorstep also. We had a lovely stay at Joe and Patricia's apartment and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. A wonderful stay in Nice, thank you.

Having tested the property ourselves with our own children, we welcome yours. Although the lift in the building is suitable for a buggy, it may be a little narrow for a wheelchair. For your convenience, a washing machine, indoor clothes airer, iron, ironing board, beach mats and parasols are all provided. We only believe in charging for the time you stay and so linen, towels, and heating (in winter) are all included. Upon arrival, the property will be clean with fresh bedlinen and towels. Although we do not expect guests to clean before departure, we ask that the apartment is left in an acceptable state. The area..... Famous for lovely beaches right along the coast - Nice, Villefranche sur Mer, Beaulieu sur Mer, Eze.... - the Cote d'Azur has loads more to offer. The rich history of the region means the city has a very distinct culture. A great wealth of fine architecture, a diverse cultural life, a myriad of museums and art galleries means there is something for everyone.

Excellent location, very clean apartment with super facilities. Arrangements for keys well managed.

We had a lovely week in Nice. Apartment is handy for the station literally a five minute walk away. Took train to Monaco and Antibes, both worth a visit. Struck by the cleanliness of the apartment, very impressive.

Second stay at this superb apartment in Nice!

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit to this wonderful apartment! Marianne (the lady who looks after the apartment) was extremely helpful and had perfect English to answer any of our questions. She met us on arrival and highlighted some of the other hidden things within Nice that we didn’t do on our previous trip which was extremely useful to have some local knowledge. The owners had left us a Travel Guide for all things Nice which was also very useful for our stay. The apartment on entering is very homely with a French theme and malicious attention to detail throughout, with a very high standard of décor. Everything has been thought of with the amount of kitchen utensils, dishwasher facility, luxury towels, toiletries, hair dryer, hair straighteners, travel plugs and other holiday essentials have all been thought of in this home away from home.

It was a truly luxury stay in Nice with this apartment, with the owners leaving some local Wine chilling in the fridge, biscuits for snacking and even mints on our pillows, we were truly blown away! It was very easy to relax and switch off.

The Train Station (La Gare) was less than a five-minute walk away, which was very easily located to our trips to Cannes and Monaco. With less than a ten-minute walk to the beach, along the way you have local supermarkets with all types of la cuisine. Each morning we woke up to the smell of bread which was the local Patisserie located on the opposite side of the road, this is a must try! Also, very close to the Square and high street shops for day shopping. For night time, again, very close to a selection of exquisite restaurants.

We are both so delighted to have come across this home away from home apartment through recommendation from a friend, we look forward to returning as soon as possible.

Clean and bright apartment in central location

  • 4 of 5

Clean and bright apartment. Everything you could need provided- description and photos give an accurate indication of what to expect. Good location for easy access to promenade, shops, train station. Despite being on a bustling intersection, we found no problem with noise. Ideal for us as a family of four. Efficient and friendly welcome from Marianne and Grace. We enjoyed the proximity of an excellent boulangerie just over the road!

A pretty place in a good location!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this place in Nice. We had a group of five and we were snug but comfortable. The apt is cool with moulding and hardwood floors and has a separate WC for those special moments. The AC worked well in the bedroom but did not cool the entire apt. The breeze from the sea was enough to cut the 85 degree Heat. It is a comfortable place and a good location to explore a great town. Good communication from the owners on some qquestions we had as well.

Promenade des Anglais
Car: not necessary

The (pebbled) beach is a 10-15 minute walk depending on whether you get attracted by the many provencal shops en route. If you prefer, you can pay to use one of the private, sandy breaches along the Promenade.

Alternatively, Antibes, Villefranche sur Mer, Juan les Pins or Cannes all have sandy beaches and are easily accessible by train.

Getting around Nice is easier than ever - the tram system is excellent as is the Vélo Blue (bicycle rental system).

You really don't need a car here as you are so centrally placed in Nice and the SNCF central station is less than a 5 minute walk away. The train line has excellent train links to Italy, Monaco, Eze, Menton, Antibes, Cannes etc.

If you are driving the auto-routes are excellent.

There is so much to see and do you will need several trips to do it all. You can get away into the mountains for skiing or walks, the promenade and beaches, the art galleries of St Paul de Vence, Villefranche, Cannes Film Festival, Monaco Grand Prix - it's all just a short trip away.

For the workaholic, WiFi is available in the apartment!

Local restaurants, a little bar, a mouthwatering greengrocers and several tasty boulangeries are all on your doorstep. Banks, a range of shops - everything you could possibly need are within a 10 minute walk.
