About Clare Charlesworth

As a couple, we have loved visiting Nice for many years and decided in 2013 to buy and renovate an apartment as our second home which we would love to share with you.

We enjoy spending as much time in Nice as we can and particularly enjoy leisurely walks along the Prom, the views from the Chateau, eating at the Cours Salaya or Place Garibaldi and whiling away the hours people-watching from one of the many bars and restaurants.

We are sure you will love Nice as much as we do.

Clare Charlesworth purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Clare Charlesworth chose Carre d'Or

Why choose this property over all the other apartments available to rent in Nice? The apartment itself is a 'home' not just a bland rental property, it is large and spacious, has everything you need for a very comfortable stay and provides a central location to visit all the local attractions on foot, by car, by bike or on public transport.

Four people can comfortably share the apartment, there are two separate large bedrooms, there is a large living area with a 6 seater dining table and a large comfortable sofa, chair and 'love' seat (cosy 2 seater sofa).

What makes this apartment unique

Close to the shops, beach, station, bus links, restaurants and bars but in a residential area away from the hustle and bustle

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mr and Mrs. Charlesworth,

My husband and I had a wonderful time visiting Nice and region and staying in your lovely apartment. The apartment was comfortable, with everything we needed close at hand. Claire was lovely and she gave us a warm welcome. We appreciated her being available right away via cell phone when I needed help finding the hair dryer. The neighborhood is wonderful as well, with little grocery stores, including a “bio” market, as well as good restaurants close by. We had a small dinner party with my two brothers and their wives, who were staying in a nearby hotel, so all of us were able to enjoy the ambiance of the apartment one evening.

I visit France often and will think of your apartment when planning a future visit.

All the best,
May 2017

Beautiful graceful French apartment perfectly located near the promenade but very quist. Great responsive host and wonderful owners. My traveling girl friend and I had a wonderful time here and would return in a minute. Extremely well equipped, high ceilings, lots of natural light and very large and comfortable.

Wonderful apartment and location in Nice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a second time at this lovely and spacious apartment and it was all we remembered form the first visit. Beautiful historic decor with all modern amenities; very spacious with high ceilings; comfortable and stylish furnishings; and many other small touches provided by the thoughtful owners, who were true to form and highly responsive and friendly throughout. Location is fantastic: 2 minute walk to Promenade des Anglais and the beauty of la cote d'Azur, easy walk to old Nice which is spectacular, or to train station if heading to Italy for day's exploration. Seconds from rue de France and all of its restaurants and shops. Highly recommended - we look forward to our next visit(s). Thank you, Clare and Gavin.

Amazing apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful - So close to the Promenade des Anglais and just a short stroll to the old town. Perfect to come back to every night, whether it was cooking a meal in the amazing kitchen or having a glass of wine on the balcony. Couldn't recommend it enough for a stay in Nice!
