About ATHENA ROBINSON

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 Nice

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!

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!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is great. It is right in the old town area. The negative is that the bedroom is incredibly small. We put a carry on suitcase in the closet but the other suitcase had to go in the living room. I would suggest to the owner that they should remove the red light fixture in the bedroom. It blocks the overhead light and is odd. Even with the small bedroom, this is a great apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Our large queen size bed was particularly chosen to offer space underneath which is more than high enough to slide suitcases under. The bedroom offers a variety of lights to suit every mood, with 2 wall lights, a freestanding light and the central ceiling light. As a combination they offer anything from a brightly lit room, down to a romantic soft light. Although not large, the bedroom does offer extra length queen size bed and also plenty of wardrobe and storage space. We are pleased to hear this was your only negative and that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment.

Well located apartment in Old Town

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay in this apartment for a week. Very well located, right in the middle of old town; only a few minutes walk to the beach/the rest of old town, very close to a tram stop and a couple of bus stops, and near a number of restaurants, bars and supermarkets.

Athena was very quick to respond to our emails (which was helpful given that we only booked a week in advance). Pat (the apartment manager) met us at the bus stop to take us to the apartment, and was very helpful and informative regarding the local sites and attractions. On the day we had to leave, she was also very flexible, allowing us to check out at 3pm (as there was no new guest arriving that day) and let us leave our luggage in the apartment until 10pm when our flight was. They had also stocked the fridge with some essentials and a bottle of wine.

Worth noting that the bedroom feels slightly more cramped than the picture portrays (as the cupboard and walls are quite close to the edges of the bed) and the air conditioning units can be quite loud (but are essential. Still 25/30 degrees in September). Apart from those 2 quite minor points, was a lovely stay in a very nice apartment. Thanks very much

Ideal Location

  • 3 of 5

An Ideal base in the old town of Nice. Good facilities. Everything you could need including beach umbrella & shopping bags. Bed very comfortable.

Pat was very knowledgeable on everything to do with the area including public transport.

Athenas information that she supplied before we arrived was extremely useful. Very impressed.

Fantastic base for exploring the Cote D'Azur.

Notes:

Although close to Vieux Nice's bustling cobbled streets and alleys, the apartments face the infamous Place St Francois and away from the frantic pace of the heart of the Old town. Traditional 17th-C building but with all modern conveniences. Perfectly situated for exploring the French Riviera, a stroll down to the beach, shopping, restaurants and night life.
