Nice apartment description

Take in the spectacular view and laughter of the gulls from your own balcony while enjoying your morning café and petit déjeuner or before dîner as you sip your apéritifs and watch the coucher de soleil into the Mediterranean.

Our spacious one bedroom flat with tall ceilings is situated in private Parc Louisa, a gated, residential neighborhood with permitted on-street parking available to you, just below beautiful Mont Boron, known as the “Hollywood” of Nice.

Located on the 6th floor, with a recently updated, reliable lift, our slightly Bohemian apartment is ideal for 1 or 2 persons but suitable for 3 or 4 QUIET close friends or family. Respect for residents is a MUST as sound travels between floors in this classic old dwelling. Offered at a nightly rate (4 night minimum stay except when fewer days are left between bookings) or weekly rate, year round. Discounted rates gladly given for long term, off season rental.

Shop on foot for kitchen staples at a neighboring supermarché or select your petit déjeuner of croissant and baguette from several local boulangeries. ‘La Réserve’ public beach, an intimate, uncrowded bathing spot, is also within a short walking distance, and a brief stroll to the Port offers lots of dining choices, including nearby ‘Chez Pipo’ for arguably the best “socca” in Nice. Or just wander by the harbor’s edge and enjoy the exotic yachts and colorful classic Nicois fishing boats.

Place Girabaldi, 'Vieux Nice' (old Nice), Place Masséna, Nice’s Cours Selaya Flower Market, and Colline du Chateau (Castle Hill), as well as the Promenade des Anglais, to name a few popular spots, are also all within walking distance, some shorter, some longer. But local public transport is both an easily accessible and affordable option.

We’re also able to offer services beyond housekeeping and on-call assistance for the apartment, thanks to the superior management of Sandra Lenk, at a reasonable cost to you. For help finding your way in Nice or beyond, she’ll be happy to take you on guided tours or provide recommendations from the practical such as buying prepaid mobile phones to historic destinations. She’s also willing to lend a hand negotiating the local transportation by taking the bus or tram with you or, if you prefer, on-foot. If cooking is your thing, Sandra can arrange “french cuisine” classes including everything from menu selection and shopping for ingredients to instruction preparing your meal in our apartment.

                            We LOVED this place. The photos are beautiful, but it is so much better in person. It was very clean and had everything we needed to cook our meals, grocery store a short walk down the hill. The owner was wonderful to work with and getting into the apartment with our keys was a breeze. Best part is the deck, drinking coffee in the mornings and enjoying a drink in the evenings. I really appreciated that this apartment feels like a well loved home, not a vacation rental. Parking was a plus. We hope to return for a longer visit.

                            We had 6 nights here and found the apartment well situated, very clean and quite spacious. We loved the view and of course the little balcony was a fabulous treat! Loved watching the sunset with a glass of wine in hand. Sandra, who looked after the apartment was extremely helpful and very pleasant to deal with. Not a luxury apartment but fabulous in so many ather ways.

                            We loved our stay in this lovely apartment perched above the port in Nice. It was so easy coordinating our stay with Olivia who answered all of our questions ahead of time and offered wonderful suggestions of things to do during our stay. The apartment is exactly as pictured and offers free convenient parking which we appreciated especially when we had a few late night returns from long day trips. Many days we left the car parked near the apartment and walked everywhere or took the bus or tram.Eight days were not enough to explore the many lovely villages nearby and to spend time walking around the city of Nice. Even in the chilly, sometime rainy weather of November we enjoyed watching the incredible sunsets from the apartment whenever we could. We would love to return and explore some more!

                            The owner went above and beyond answering questions as we prepared our trip. The apartment was exactly as represented. Everything was clean and we had everything we needed. We especially appreciated being invited to use things like trash bags, laundry detergent, etc so we didn't have to buy all those things and leave a lot of it behind. We arranged a "Meet and Greet", for a fee, with the hostess, Sandra, and it was money well spent. She was there when we arrived, showed us how to operate everything (we would not have figured it all out on our own), got us on Wifi, and gave us lots of useful advice. We had a wonderful week between Christmas and New Years, mostly going up and down the coast oggling beautiful scenery and having nice lunches. We also enjoyed strolling the promenade and vielle ville. We didn't mind the walking distance to anything in Nice, nor did we mind the hill the apartment is on. (we are a mother and daughter in our 50's and 20's) We liked being in the port area. We felt safe at all times and it was much quieter at night, I imagine, than the more central parts of the city. We may very well return someday with our men.

                            We had a super time in this apartment and appreciated the ability to park the car, especially when we found the local train station was within walking distance and meant we didn't always have to drive. The restaurants in the harbour area were excellent and close to the apartment. The apartment was well equipped and very comfortable with excellent views from the balcony. Would return in an instant!

                            "We really enjoyed our stay @ the apartment in Nice. The view is spectacular -- the sunset, the boats, the helicopter shuttles to Monaco, the fireworks from Cannes. The location was great for exploring Nice and very easy access by bus to Monaco. With the extreme hot weather, we mostly visited the beaches! We went "canyoning" with http://www.altitude06.com/ For an extra fee, the tour co offered a shuttle to/from the canyon which was well worth it to avoid having to rent a vehicle and drive through the area! The extra space in the apartment was perfect timing as we had caught a bug and needed some time to rest, relax and recover."

                            My friend and I planned a trip to Nice and Barcelona for our 30th birthdays in October. We stayed at Olivia's flat for 4 days and could not have been more pleased with its location and, of course, the view. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and we were able to catch the bus to Eze right outside. The walk to the Old Town was a bit longer than we had envisioned, but the port area had all of the restaurants and wine we needed, so it wasn't a problem. I also can't say enough about how helpful Olivia was in the process -- it was our first time renting and she made it easy! Would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a cozy retreat and home base for exploring the Cote d'Azur.

                            We spent 10 days in Nice during the end of August. This was our first time in the south of France and the apartment we rented contributed to a wonderful, unforgettable experience on the french riviera. The apartment has an amazing view from the 6th floor towards the Mediterranean Sea and the entire Nice coast beautifully illuminated in the distance during nights. The apartment has charm and character, feels homy, it is clean and has all the necessary amenities. The welcome gift was a nice touch as well. The host has well-selected practical information about surroundings and she proved very helpful during our stay. We are grateful for the unhesitating, prompt response when one day the fridge broke down and she immediately arranged for a new fridge that was quickly installed by the end of day. The apartment is situated in a beautiful and quiet area, away from the trepidation of the city, helping us relax after a long day of road traveling, city visiting or shopping. We have used the bus to downtown and shopping areas (bus stop behind the apartment building), but we mostly walked to Vieux Nice and Place Garibaldi. The grocery store and bakery are a couple minutes downhill . We have also enjoyed the mornings at café Carnot nearby for a café-croissant on the terrace. Our dealing with the owner went very well. Olivia is amiable, informative and happy to provide all necessary for a pleasant stay. We would highly recommend this apartment to others and if we travel once more in the Nice area we would stay here again.

                            The view from high up on the hill overlooking the Port and Bay is amazing. Of course what goes up eventually comes down and the hikes back up from the Port, beach, market and old town are somewhat strenuous. Overall the experience cancels out the long walks up. Our only suggestion is that the internet connection is difficult. We had to call Sondra, the manager, who made an appointment to help us get on line with the Ethernet, not WI-FI. We had no problem connecting with WI-FI at other locations in France. I suspect that it had to do with our security program and the provider at the apartment. Sondra also showed us how to properly use the French Press coffee pot....need to include instructions on it for us Mr. Cofffee users. We would definitely return and recommend this property to any one. It is very easy to use Nice as your base for travelling this region. Have dinner at the private but open to the public restaurant at Club Nautique which is at the beach the owners refer to. And go to the market that is up the hill from the apartment so that the return with your groceries in the thoughtfully provided shopping cart is on the down hill. We loved this place!!!

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: We live in rural Vermont with our three beautiful children, but also have a real sense of place and connection with Nice. Scott is the sole-proprietor of a modest home building and remodeling company; Olivia is an artist, recently having gone back to work after ten years at home raising the kids...

                          Why the Owner Chose Nice:
                          This vintage 1920s apartment has been in my family for fifty years, and has been owned by my parents, grandparents, most recently my uncle and as of the summer 2009, it is now ours. We use this enchanting apartment when we can, and share it with our French relatives from time to time. We welcome your impressions, thoughts and ideas...
