About Ray and Jacky Tarleton

Ray used to be a head teacher and Jacky taught English. We bought the apartment as a holiday home because we love the variety of Nice - sea, city, museums and restaurants galore. We are also both opera fanatics so a home in Avenue Auber, next to Rue Verdi and Rue Rossini, around the corner from Place Mozart was irresistible - especially when the estate agents told us what a desirable area this is.

Because of family commitments, we are unable to spend as much time in Nice as we would like. Until that changes, we like to share the pleasure of our apartment with others, so that they can also enjoy the delights of Nice.

Ray and Jacky Tarleton purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Ray and Jacky Tarleton chose Nice

The area is convenient for everything. You don't need a car. Links to the airport and local destinations are easy. We use the airport bus (6 Euro and a 20 minute ride) to get here and then chill out for as long as we can stay.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the bright sunny mornings on our balcony. We draw down the sun canopy and enjoy coffee. The air is so clear it's no wonder so many Impressionist came here. At midday, we visit the nearby boulangerie or a local café for lunch and then go on to the Promenade des Anglais to read or swim. The sea is deep azure blue with warm currents so the season for swimming is a long one from April to October.

There are concerts, operas and musical events at the Opera House, in the parks and on the Promenade. The Nice Carnival is held in February each year and there are fireworks on Bastille Day. At Christmas there are many interesting decorations, a Ferris Wheel and the oyster and champagne bar.

If we're feeling energetic, we take a bus or train to explore Monaco, Cannes, Antibes or Italy. The choice is endless.

We have full internet access so can listen to UK radio or read the papers online on our lap tops. Our TV system has multiple channels to relax to in the evenings - unless we are meeting friends, eating at one of the many restaurants in the area, or seeing films in English (VO-version originale) in the local cinemas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your apartment is lovely, it’s really comfortable and very well equipped and in a brilliant location.Best bits for us, relaxing on the balcony in the cool of the evening after a hot day out exploring Nice and its surroundings.'

'The apartment is absolutely lovely - perfect for exploring and wonderful to return to in the evenings.'

'We enjoyed your lovely apartment and thank you for sharing it with us! Nice is such a beautiful city and the water and area are something to treasure. We hope to visit again and when we do, if your apartment is available, it will definitely be our first choice!'

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(29 traveller reviews)



  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. The photographs actually don't do this apartment justice. It is truly spacious, modern, and beautiful. Celine was there to help orient us on arrival. After that everything went very smoothly. It's high enough up that the street noise from maintenance vehicles in the early morning was not too much of a problem. The internet was fantastically excellent, over 100 mb/sec.

The place to stay in Nice!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Nice staying at this wonderful apartment! It had everything you could need plus a few surprise extras. The location was perfect for exploring all that Nice had to offer and with the train station only a 5 minute walk away we were able to explore even further afield. Celine who met us on arrival is a lovely host and explained carefully all about the apartment. As she lives in the same block she would be close at hand if there were any problems - needless to say there were'nt any! Thanks to Ray and Jacky for letting us stay in their apartment and when we do return again someday it will be to stay there again.

Kind regards,

Michael and Etta Moore

Excellent week in a great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was very clean and tidy with all the things you would need for a relaxing stay. Great balcony for an early morning coffee and croissant. Good location only 5-10 minutes from bars and restaurants although quite a long walk to the old town. Lots of small supermarkets and shops locally for supplies.

Overall I would definitely recommend a stay.

Superb stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at this extremely well equipped and central apartment. We relaxed ate out nearby and took a bus to Monaco for 1 euro 50! Spectacular views along coast can thoroughly recommend. Nice has so much to see and do, we will definitely be back. Thanks Ray and Jacky for letting us stay and also to Celine for her attentiveness.

Nice place in Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Location was ideal with apartment situated in a relatively quiet residential area but with huge choice of local bars/restaurants, Promenade des Anglais and rail station all easily accessible by foot. The apartment was very stylish, comfortable and extremely well equipped and this enabled us to feel at ease as soon as we arrived. Enjoyed nice, lazy breakfasts in the sun on the outside balcony whilst watching the world pass by. Celine was brilliant and explained everything extremely well when we arrived but was not at all intrusive but comforting to know she was at hand and she happily organised our taxi back to the airport. Highly recommended.
