About the property

2 apartments in Old Town

This 18thC property is part of one of the original 9 doorways into lively old Vieux Nice and just steps to all the action. Steeped in history and facing Place St Francois with its many fine food shops, restaurants and markets. Conveniently close to trams and buses where for only 1.50€ you can explore the Cote D'Azur and Maritimes areas. Perfect Location for everywhere.

These are our family holiday homes and well maintained. Unlike most of Vieux Nice apartments, here you have easy access only a few steps up from the street. Although we are close to all Vieux Nice's bustling cobbled streets and alleys, the apartments are peaceful and quiet so you can look forward to a good nights sleep on good quality, comfy, beds. portable air /con unit or ceiling fans and heaters for your extra comfort, and you'll also find more than enough wardrobe and cupboard space.

Our family have enjoyed so many wonderful holidays in Nice. Spring and Autumn for sightseeing and shopping. Summer for water sports and beaches. Winter for skiing in the 4 resorts only an hour away. A few years ago we realised our dream to buy our own little 'place in the sun', and 2014 our son has joined us in buying the apartment next door. These are our family holiday homes and perhaps for retirement in the future.

ATHENA ROBINSON purchased this apartment in 2010

Why ATHENA ROBINSON chose Vieille Ville

We just love the charm and uniqueness of Vieux Nice. We chose Place St Francois in The Old Town which couldn't be in a better location. right in the centre of everything, yet quiet and easy to get to. Public transport is amazing, reliable and convenient and generally only 1.50euro p/f. So many beautiful places to explore on our days out, with Monaco and Italy to the east and the beautiful French Riviera to the west. Just couldn't get any better and we just love coming back again, and again, and again

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is in the heart of the Old Town, yet its quiet at night. Another real advantage is that access is easy - unlike most of the apartments here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect trip , perfect location

Left on Aug 5, 2016 for a stay in Jul 2016

This was such a lovely trip from start to finish, Athena and pat were both so helpful from start to finish throughtout the booking sending helpful tips and information , The apartment was in a great location so central, the little extras put in the apartment for us such as cheese and wine was lovely to arrive to after a plane journey. Overall I think this was great value for money and will definitely return again.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in the perfect location and so cute! Pat met us and gave us a lot of great info on the walk to the apartment. The wine, cheese, and bread waiting for us when we got there was so nice after a long night of traveling. Not huge, but a perfect size for two people. Thanks Athena & Pat!

Cosy Clean Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment in old part of Nice. Everything you need is on your doorstep, Shops, Restaurants, Museums Transport etc. For myself I found it had too many steps to reach the front door of the apartment but for somebody younger it wouldn't be a problem. Still, we both had a most enjoyable stay. Bed was very comfortable.

Great place in Old Nice

  • 5 of 5

Nothing but good things to say about the apartment, the location and the welcome. It's small but tidy, and every necessity was thoughtfully provided. There was even bread and cheese and a bottle of wine, coffee and milk and water, eliminating the need to run out immediately for supplies - very welcome. Pat met me and installed me quickly and cheerfully, the internet worked, all was well.

I know this part of Nice and it's a fantastic location, easy walking everywhere, plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, and all the local flavor you could want.

And even though there were people arriving the day I left, George and Pat arranged to help me store my suitcase (late flight out) and set up a transfer for me.

Couldn't be better.

Perfect location in a great city

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location right outside the fish market and so inside old town. Many restaurants, bars, and shops were just outside the door. Convenient for anyone who doesn't like the prom de anglais as much. You can walk to it, the chateau, waterfall... it's all so close. Loved the bed size. My husband is over six feet and that's always important for comfort. Pat was fantastic. She manages this property with several others. Merci to both of these lovely ladies!

Nice's famous pebble beach with its colourful bars, cafes restaurants and non- stop action on the Promenade des Anglais is just a short walk from our apartment - less than 5 minutes through the historic old town takes you there.


Nice International airport is so convenient. The No 98 bus is just outside the terminal, and costs 6€. 20minutes journey, walk across the square and to our apartment.

Main train stations very convenient.

Trams and buses stop at top of our square.

All transport convenient for exploring local and all the French/Italian Rivieras
