About the property

Apartment in Nice, Alpes Maritimes, Provence-Alpes-Cote DAzur, France - Perfect Location Within Easy Reach Of The Promenade Des Anglais And Train Station

The location of this lovely, comfortable studio with its bright, open aspect and roomy balcony couldn't be better. On one side of the well-maintained building, there's an entrance through peaceful gardens that leads directly to the Promenade des Anglais. You could pop out for a morning swim or run before coming home for breakfast on the balcony! On the other side, a second entrance leads to the popular rue de France, with plenty of restaurants, shops, cafes and bars. The train station is a 10-15 minute walk away, offering easy access to coastal towns along the Riviera, and Monaco. There are also several bus stops nearby for routes that can take you to Grasse, Cannes, Menton, Vence and other beautiful towns and villages. The studio itself is bright and quiet, on the second floor (with lift) of a building set in gardens away from the bustle of the Promenade des Anglais. The good quality, Italian-made sofabed pulls out with one tug into a proper double bed. You can see the sea from the balcony, which has a table and two solid wooden armchairs with cushions. There's also a parking garage within view, but it's neither big nor noisy, so it's easy to forget. Thanks to this studio's ideal location and practical set-up, you could spend the day here pottering comfortably, or you could be off exploring - or both! The kitchen is equipped with all the basics for holiday cooking, and there's wi-fi, and a TV with DVD player and some DVDs.

About Suellen Grealy

My husband is from Nice, but after 30 years of living in London, he's sort of a Frenchman with an English accent, and I'm a Londoner with a slightly American accent. We talked about moving to Nice for more than 20 years, but the opportunity didn't arise until two years ago, when Joel went into business with his sister here. We miss London, but waking up to blue, blue sky nearly every day makes us happy. We know it makes other people happy, too - which is why we decided to buy this studio apartment with its lovely balcony and share it with our friends - and with others, too. I've been exploring Nice and the Cote d'Azur ever since we arrived, and I really believe it's one of the most magical places in the world!

Suellen Grealy purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Suellen Grealy chose Carre d'Or

Location, location, location! This studio offers everything that makes Nice such a wonderful place to be: go out one door and you can be at the beach within moments, go out the other and you've got a great French city full of restaurants, shops, markets on the other. Within an easy walk of the train station, too, means you can discover the Riviera on day trips... all ending with a peaceful aperitif on the balcony.

What makes this apartment unique

When you're on the balcony at this pretty studio, just look to your right: you'll see the Negresco hotel, where guests will be paying ten times as much as you are! Ok, ok, it's not exactly the same, and you can see a garage as well as the sea, but it would be hard work to find such a perfect, peaceful, comfortable location in Nice at this price!

Good Value

  • 4 of 5

Studio in an excellent area albeit with some noise and light irritation from the nearby 2 storey parking garage. The welcome was formal but efficient (no first names) but the owner went to great lengths to replace a second set of keys lost by the previous guest. Do not air clothes on the balcony, even on a clothes horse below handrail height. This is a building management dictum - not the owners.

Perfect base for a weekend in Nice

  • 5 of 5

You will struggle to find a place to stay in Nice that will beat this apartment for location, charm and value for money. Less than a five minute walk from the beach and the main bars/restaurants. Suellen the owner is very friendly and welcoming providing hints and tips for the best places to visit on the cote d'azure. Highly recommended!

A perfect studio for two!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Suellen's studio before and will keep returning. Nice itself is a paradise and the studio is ideally situated for discovering the city and its neighboring environment. It is situated less than 150 metres from the Promenade des Anglais and the marvelous beach. It has lovely sea views and is in a quiet and lush park like garden. The studio itself has everything one could hope for - a small and practical kitchen, a most comfortable couch/bed and most of all a fine balcony with sea views.

Nice is one of our favorite places and Suellen's studio is the perfect solution for us. We are returning in October and are certain that this will not be the last visit!

Well located smallish studio flat; nice balcony

  • 5 of 5

The studio was in a great location, close to the beach, restaurants and shops. Bus stops were located on the promenade (within 5 minutes) and the train was within walking distance (around 15 minutes, moderately uphill). Two bakers and two supermarkets were around 5 minutes walk away (in different directions). The historic old town was within walking distance (around 15 minutes on the flat) and the site of the castle was accessible via a free lift from there. Monte Carlo was easily reachable by train.

The studio was clean and quiet with a nice balcony great for breakfast. The owner was helpful and understanding when our flight was delayed.

Don't hire a car for this one - the parking would be expensive and you won't need it. The 98 bus will take you to and from the airport.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for our short stay in Nice. 5 mins from the beach and about 10 mins walk to the old town. The studio was just as described, and was clean and bright. There are some lovely shops nearby for your morning bread and pastry to enjoy on the delightful balcony. Definitely worth a visit.

Great stay in Nice

  • 5 of 5

This apartment met all our needs for a place to stay while on holiday in Nice. All the facilities we required were present, well maintained and clean. In fact the whole block is well maintained. A change of bed linen and towels was made at the end of our first week.

The apartment is located no more than 5 minutes walk from the beach while also being within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants.

I should also say that the owner is extremely friendly and helpful giving us lots of advice on where to go and what to see in Nice.

The studio is less than two minutes' walk from the beaches of the Promenade des Anglais. Blue Beach is the nearest private beach.


Nice Cote d'Azur is the nearest airport (20 minutes by bus/taxi); Nice Ville train station is a 10-15 minute walk away.
