About norm

We are a married couple traveling to France for business three times a year....we love Nice so much that we bought an apartment and set it up especially for guests to come and enjoy this fabulous city for a reasonable price.. Our vacation rental is for guests only....we do not live there, and that is what makes it different from other rentals. It is set up for YOU. This means that you don't spend your stay looking at someone else's belongings.

Our favorite things to do while in Nice are:

*Going to the antique/flea market on mondays

*Shopping at the daily food market in Cours Saleya

*Eating at Le Safari at The Cours Selaya (the market place)

*Taking the tram downtown to shop for clothes and gifts

*Riding rental bicycles from Nice to Juan La Pin along the Promenade!

*Walking to museums

*Eating Crema di Gelati by the Russian Palace......we could go on and on :o)

norm purchased this apartment in 2008

Why norm chose Old Town

We chose Nice because unlike other towns on the Cote D'Azur, it does not close down in the off season....there actually is no 'off season' in remains vibrant all year long! That's why it is the most visited city in France, next to Paris. And since there is so much to do on foot, you really don't need a car for your stay...just fly into the Nice Airport , and take the bus 20 minutes to our apartment...that's it!......but.... if you do choose to rent a car, there a million other possibilities! drive to Italy 30 minutes away by the highway....or go skiing in the Alps a couple hours away...the possibilities are endless! Maximum stay: 2 weeks

What makes this apartment unique

There is no need for a car once you arrive in Old Town Nice! All the amenities are right there within walking distance:

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment is just perfect for anyone who loves charm and convenience. It was very easy to get around to all the great restaurants and there was convenient parking for our rental car in the underground below the daily market at Cours Saleya, just a short distance from the apartment. The owners were very helpful when we needed help during our stay. The apartment itself is very clean and spacious.

Looking forward to coming again!

Great location, comfy beds, well-equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

Centrally located in old Nice close to shops, food, market, cafes, and the beach, this apartment is well-equippped for cooking and has everything you will need, including guidebooks to the area. We had one night of noise from the party on the street below and garbage trucks, so you might want to bring ear plugs, but we just turned the fans up full. There are 5 flights of stairs to climb - not a problem, just a warning - good exercise for us! The apartment is bright and sunny, quaint, and a wonderful reno of an ancient space - charming! The beds were really comfortable and the bedrooms are both spacious with extra bedding available if you need it. An idea: we would have liked another set of keys so that we could travel separately - we were four adults - or even a key lock box might work too... Christophe was the concierge who met us and was very welcoming and helpful; he had lots of good advice for us.

Fantastic and spacious apartment situated in the heart of Nice Old town.

  • 4 of 5

Despite the 84 steps as it was situated on the 5th floor, the apartment was fabulous and perfect for being in a such central position. We could be in 3 minutes at the beach and enjoy the Promenade. We could go downstairs and found ourselves in such a lovely square and enjoying French pancakes and ice creams. The only thing I would add to this place would be a washing machine and a lift ( obviously) but I understand that being a very old building, it might not be possible.

However, the stairs were a good excuse for doing some exercises and we kept ourselves fit by doing so:-) for the whole duration of our staying.

Highly recommended if you just want to experience the night life too and not being worried about transportation. It was also perfect as you could easily catch the trams and go wherever you wanted.

Super cute and fun!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time in this apartment.

It was very spacious, clean, and full of natural light.

The walk to the beach was about 3 minutes...not including our stop at the fabulous bakery that the apartment manager recommended, and the cafe we would stop at every morning before relaxing on the beach.

We rented bikes one day and rode on the Promenade...very much worth it!

We also prepared several meals at home in the well equipped kitchen with wonderful produce and seafood we purchased at the famous daily outdoor market (Cours Saleya)...which becomes a flea market on Mondays!

All in all a great stay!

We rented this apartment for my birthday weekend and we were super thrilled!

We were three friends and enjoyed the spaciousness of this apartment. We loved shopping the specialty food stores in the area and made dinners at home after fun days discovering Old Town Nice.

The apartment managers were very helpful and gave us some great ideas for my birthday dinner celebration. We would recommend renting this apartment to anyone going to the French Riviera...this apartment is a great value for size, location and charm!

Fabulous vacation in this cute apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just like the pictures in the ad. Very clean and well laid out. It also had lots of light pouring in from the many widows throughout. The beds were very comfortable, and the wifi worked well...that's a big one for me since I need it for business.

We had no need for a car during our stay..everything was in easy walking distance! So glad we chose this area to stay in because the restaurants all around us were fantastic. We had to buy an extra suitcase to put all our new purchases from the many charming shops in this area of Old Town....all in easy walking distance to the apartment.

I would love to stay here again!

A charming apartment and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the apartment itself is tastefully decorated with just the right mix of modern and vintage. There are lots of windows for light and ventilation.

The beds are firm and very comfortable, and the bathroom had a full length mirror and a hair dryer...kudos for that!

When you step out of the apartment building you are in the middle of picture perfect old world charm...lots of cute shops and restaurants everywhere! The daily outdoor market is only a short walk away, as well as the Promenade des Anglais which we jogged on every morning.

I will recommend this apartment and this location to all my friends.

Thanks for the bottle of rose' you treated us to!

Best, Cindy
