About the property

Apartment in Nice, Cote d'Azur, France - Sunny Location on a pedestrianised street, overlooking Notre Dame

This delightful one bedroom apartment is located in the centre of Nice on Rue de Suisse which has recently been pedestrianized, overlooking Notre Dame. It is just off the main boulevard of Jean Medecin which is the “high street” of Nice. It is suitable for 1-3 people. The apartment is on the third floor with a lift. It is south facing and therefore gets the sunshine all day making it extremely light and airy. Its location is perfect for those who wish to explore Nice and the Cote d'Azur. The fully equipped kitchen allows you to sample the local produce while the balcony is the perfect place to relax after a day of sightseeing or lazing on the beach. All the amenities you could ask for are right on the doorstep: shops, restaurants, transport, banks and supermarkets.

About elaine rowlands

We have owned this apartment for 10 years now and we use it ourselves 3-4 times a year.I work in the travel industry and my husband is in IT so we travel a lot professionally but Nice is our home away from home.

elaine rowlands purchased this apartment in 2007

Why elaine rowlands chose Musicians Quarter

We bought in Nice as I wanted somewhere sunny with a beach but also somewhere culturally rich. Although we love coming in the summer and lazing on our favourite beach (Villefranche), we also come sometimes in October, December, February and April so we want to be able to go exploring. I am continually amazed at how much there is to do and see in this area. Nice is also so easy to get with plenty of flights from UK airports and our apartment is a 5 minute walk from the airport express bus stop.

We do not charge extra cleaning fees at the end of your stay so the price you see is all you pay.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the fact that we are in the centre of Nice. There are hundreds of restaurants to choose from, supermarkets with long opening hours and museums, beaches, shopping streets and much more are minutes away. What we really like though is that we are not over-looked. There is no-one peering in at us and we love how the church can look so different depending on the time of day and the time of year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The apartment was fantastic and made our holiday. I very much hope to visit Nice again in the near future and hire out your lovely apartment.' C. Holley.

'Just wanted to let you know we had a fabulous week in

the south of France. The apartment is spacious and

the balcony a delight for morning coffee and afternoon

aperitifs. It's location is great as it's so close to

the train station and to the old town and attractions.' Melinda & Nick

'Just a short note to let you know that we enjoyed our stay in the apartment immensely. Plenty of good food and wine and superb weather.' P. Heard

Really wonderful stay in Nice in this superbly situated apartment

  • 5 of 5

We (family of three- one grown up daughter) travelled to Nice for a week, choosing the apartment based on great reviews and the fantastic location, and we weren't disappointed. The accommodation was clean upon arrival, had a nice big fridge/freezer, a powerful, hot shower and a spacious bathroom. We were impressed with the size of the double bedroom, complete with full size wardrobe and further chest of drawers. The sofa pulled out into a bed and was very large and comfortable. Most delightful was the balcony which really was a suntrap, with a fantastic view of the opposite church. Looking left, we could watch the hustle and bustle of Avenue Jean Medicin and the trams go past (we did not have any problems with noise). The building itself had a lovely old style lift and couldn't really have been better located- few minutes stroll to the station, a big Monoprix, 10 minutes to Place Massena, 15 minutes or less to the old town and the Promenade des Anglais.

Elaine was very accomodating and very efficient at responding- we received a hugely useful welcome pack with recommendations and guidance for the utilities in the apartment, and checking in and out was made a breeze- despite our late (11PM) arrival.

Thank you Elaine, we are already planning our next holiday to Nice and would not hesitate to request to stay in your apartment again!

A very comfortable apartment, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed, minutes from the beach, shopping, and the train station, with the balcony overlooking the cathedral! Most comfortable mattress of our entire trip. We really appreciated the beach gear, the elevator, and the complete set of directions/suggestions/advice Elaine provided. A half block from the main street (Jean Medecin) and trams, yet quiet. A very pleasant and spacious apartment!

Gorgeous spacious apartment. Great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is gorgeous. I stayed there for 6 nights in July. It is right facing the Notre Damme church which is a stunning vview at night from the balcony. It is in a great location, 10 to 15 walk to the old town and the same to the promenade. This is a great apartment for exploring Nice and only 15 mins on the bus from the airport and a 5 minute walk off the bus to the apartment. I will definitately being going again
