A Unique Converted Chapel with its own Private Back Garden and Only 15 Min from



Updated: 11-Sep-2016
Apartment in Nice, Alpes Maritimes, Provence Alpes Cote D'Azur, France - 2 Mins Walk from Beach and the Famous Promenade Des Anglais, Tucked Away in a Quiet Cul-de-sac

Charming and very rare holiday apartment on ground floor of ancient converted chapel. Unusually this property has a back garden where guests may BBQ or sunbathe in relative privacy as it is not directly overlooked. It has a rural feel hidden away behind typical French buildings but is just a few minutes’ walk to the sea. Garden overlooks treescape and gardens. The garden is especially nice to come back to after a days sightseeing to relax and have a glass or two of wine. The beach and promenade is just 2 minutes walk away as are restaurants, public transport supermarkets and shops.

Guestbook comments from the owner

3/2/2011. We enjoyed our stay here in Nice for 3 weeks. The apartment is clean and fully furnished and the location is ideal. It's close to the beach and bus stops to the city centre and it's a great neighbourhood. Thanks Geraldine.

Geraldine, thanks for a great stay the past month! The apartment is in such a great location- close enough to walk to all the sights but not so close that it's crazy and noisy. I loved being 1 block from the beach too! The apartment is so nicely decorated with all your artwork and very comfortable. Thanks, Geraldine. 26/4/2011 Nicole Gustin, Providence,Rhode Island, U.S.A

July 2-9th 2011 We very much enjoyed our stay in Nice. The apartment is more than adequate-it has everything a family of 4 would need for a short vacation. However, the highlight for us was the garden. It is so pleasant to be in. This garden is what puts Geraldine's apartment above similar in Nice, by far! Sandra, Hafashor & family, Vancouver.

Tranquil holiday in city center

  • 5 of 5

I stayed 2 weeks in this property and didn't want to leave. The location is excellent. Only a block from the Promenade and several bus lines. Everything within central Nice is very close by--10-15 minutes walking at the most. There's a small grocery store about a block away and several bakeries and restaurants nearby.

The apartment was very clean, very quiet, and very comfortable. This property has a lovely back garden that is very peaceful; unique to find in the center of the city. I had everything I needed in the apartment and the heating system is excellent. It heated up within minutes.

I plan to stay again at this property when returning to Nice and I definitely recommend it to others.

Oasis of calm

  • 5 of 5

stayed for 8 nights during June/July and would have liked to stay longer. The apartment is a charming oasis of calm just outside the hustle and bustle of Nice. Geraldine the owner was a lovely lady, very helpful and obliging. Couldn't have found anywhere nicer to stay, such a bonus to get your own private garden with BBQ. Thank you Geraldine, we will most certainly recommend your lovely apartment to all our friends.

wee cracker

  • 4 of 5

such a lovely wee apartment, with easy bus trip from the airport and surrounded by the necessary shops. Is very handy for strolls into Nice, we never bothered with buses. The only downside is the school- not having kids we didn't realise just how noisy they can be.

Peaceful and private

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 nights here in May, my husband and I with our adult son and his girlfriend. The apartment is quite small and it was a little cosy with the sofabed extended, but during the day there was adequate space, and we ate most of our meals in the beautiful garden. The washing machine and laundry line were a nice inclusion, and the BBQ is bonus. We loved the ability to visit the markets and to cook and experience local recipes.

Walking distance to the beach and groceries. Easy access from the airport by public bus, and Geraldine met us at the bus stop. It's approx. 2 km into the centre of Nice, (and there are frequent, very reasonably priced buses) and we walked it every day. We even walked along the waterfront to the port on our final day to join our cruise ship.

The buses are also easy to use for visiting Monaco and other beautiful spots along the coast - it's even worth the ride just for the views!Thank you Geraldine, and we hope to visit again!

Little riviera gem

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem tucked away in a quiet cul d sac with its own little garden to escape to when the hassle and bustle of the Promenade des Anglais gets too much. Geraldine was an amazing landlady and made me extremely welcome with lots of tips on getting the most from my extended stay in her charming apartment, can't wait to return

Home from home

  • 4 of 5

We can only have 3 or 4 day breaks so Geraldine's apartment is wonderful for my wife and I. It is so convenient for everything. The Promenade des Anglais only 2 minutes. All the local buses stop just around the corner. There are 2 supermarkets nearby. The old town with its superb restaurants is either a gentle 30 minutes walk along the seafront or a 5 minute bus ride. We think this apartment is a real diamond.

From the Owner

I bought this apartment in five minutes due to the quiet location and the garden.

Activity and Interests


This property is just a few minutes walk to the beach and Promenade des Anglais. There are water sports available and many beach restaurants. Perfect for topping up your tan and enjoying the local fare. Alternatively just take your book and sit on one of the many benches in the sun and 'people watch' the glamour of the Côte d'Azur.


Nice Airport


Nearest Airport: Nice Airport at 5km. Nearest Ferry: Nice port at 2km. Nearest Train : Nice Ville at 1km. Nearest Motorway: A8 at 3km. Nearest Beach beach at 300m. Car not necessary.

Further Details:

Positioned just on the perimeter of the Central Carre D'or of Nice, this apartment is within walking distance from all shops, cafès, banks and restaurants. There is a large supermarket in the next road. Secluded from the hustle and bustle of city life, this offers a contrast of two styles of living for the price of one! It is 2 minutes from the beach and very easy to hop on a bus or a pleasant walk along the promenade to the old town and flower market. Day trips to Cannes, Antibes and Monaco etc are easy by train or bus, as is the border of Italy. The old town with its cobbled streets and varied restaurants, Place Massena, the tramway and the main shopping centre are within 30 minutes walk. The Port Leads to beautiful rocky coastal walks towards Ville Franche. Airport is 15 minutes on the bus and the bus stop is right outside or alternatively on the promenade. Beautiful views from the hills and villages around and boat trips along the coast or out to Corsica/Sardinia during high season.Shops, restaurants, supermarkets all within 2 mins walk.
