Million dollar views from this beautiful apartment on the seafront.
- english, Irish
We are a family with 5 children, living in Dublin, Ireland and love spending time in Nice.
Hugh purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Hugh chose Fabron
We fell in love with Nice and just had to have a place of our own to which we could return again and again. The location is perfect, close to the airport so that we don't spend hours travelling to get to our destination. We sometimes walk! Also, it is so convenient to the centre of Nice, we walk, take the bus and more often than not, take the Velo Bleu - the city bikes with stations all around Nice. We even ventured as far as Cagnes sur Mer on a Velo Bleu! Nice is such a wonderful city. To those who have visited, no explanation is necessary; to those who haven't, get booking now! Even after countless visits, we still have so much left to visit and see.
What makes this Apartment unique
The moment we saw what a guest described as 'the million dollar view', we fell in love with this location. We love sitting on the balcony at all times of the day or night and watching the world go by. We head across the road to swim at all times of the day or evening. A particular pleasure is to swim in the evening and then indulge in a picnic by moonlight watching the fishermen and the planes overhead!

The ocean view was amazing. Commuting around was convenient and easy. Would come back again.
We had a wonderful experience and felt very comfortable and at home.
Great base from which to explore the city and wider region with public transport Stops (bus and tram) within 100 meters. The new tram line brings you from the airport in 10 minutes and part of the way into town. Due to connect with the port the entire tram route is due to be completed in late 2019.
The view from the balcony is great with the sea directly across and the nice skyline fully in view. We found it handy to pop into the radisson a few doors up to enjoy the rooftop bar.
Thank you and while it was always a great location for exploring Nice and the beautiful area around, the tram makes the town and airport even more accessible. We often say 'a car is a hindrance' and so unnecessary in Nice, such is the quality and low cost of public transport. You and your party will be welcome back anytime.
Great location, Easy access to all transport. Nice Old Town a definite to see and explore as is all the other places in close proximity. Close to Monaco, Monte Carlo, Cannes, Ezze and St Paul. Hugh ,the owner very friendly and helpful as was his assistant Maria who helped us with booking in. Enjoyed chilling on the veranda with a glass of wine after a long day exploring all the many surroundings. Would definitely recommend this flat to other.
Nic, thank you for your comments and it was a pleasure having your family stay at Copacabana. It really is perfectly located to enjoy all that Nice and the surrounding area has to offer. It has gotten even better with the arrival of the tram and the stop immediately at the back door. This brings you to and from the airport and is due to run as the Port in Autumn 2019, making it even more convenient to get around.
Million Dollar View!
This condo has the perfect location. There is a bus stop right outside the door which gets you to Monoco, Cannes and quaint small towns outside of Nice. As well as being not far from the airport. There is a grocery store and coffee/pastry shop quite close as well. The view is fantastic you can't beat the sunrise every morning, and having the sea right across the street is great. The owner and representative in Nice were helpful and easy to deal with. The condo itself was clean and has everything you need with fresh linens and a booklet of instructions/suggestions supplied. The only minor down side would be that it can at times be a little noisy as you are on the Promenade in the front and the tram track in the back. We would highly recommend and would definitely return.
Thanks, Kerry, for taking the time to write a review; we value all feedback. We are really glad that you enjoyed your stay in our little piece of heaven, we would love to have you back to visit soon. You are correct in stating that there is traffic noise from the Promenade, the nearby hotel charges extra for the privilege of overlooking the Promenade! We think the fabulous views more than compensate.
We find the trams relatively quiet and any possible disturbance is outweighed by the sheer accessibility - the stop is at the back door and the tram will have you in the airport or the town centre in 10/15 minutes.
Many thanks for a wonderful week of staying in this charming clean and very cozy apartment! Beautiful view from the balcony and very convenient infrastructure around. All within reach ... buses .. tram .. supermarkets ... Magnificent beach and cozy embankment. Many thanks and best wishes to Hugh and Maria. I hope I'll come back and recommend it.
Thank you Misha/Kiev, it was a pleasure having you stay in Copacabana. When you return, you will join many others of our guests who have returned having fallen in love with the location. The location will be further improved in December 2018 by the opening of the tram line directly from the airport to our door. Later, in mid-2019, the complete East-West tram line will run from Nice Port right through to the airport making Copacabana even more accessible.
Very lovely stay
Nice flat you find in it all you need
Hugh (the owner ) is helpful and very nice person
I recommend it
Thanks for your kind words Chaich. A lot has changed since your visit last year. The tram is now up and running and with a stop at our door will make getting to and from the airport even easier from mid-December 2018. The trip will allow you to board a tram at the airport and alight about 10 minutes later at Copacabana.
From mid-2019, trams will be operational as far the Nice Port, making the Old Town and city centre even more accessible.
Inside the apartment, we have had the entire repainted and all bed linen etc. replaced with Egyptian cotton.
One thing has not changed and that is the million dollar views! That is perhaps why you are one of a number of guests who return regularly.
Apartment is situated on The Promenade Des Anglais, close to the Radisson Hotel, a short distance from Nice Cote d'Azur Airport. The Hotel Negresco, the Cours Salaya and the Old Town are within walking distance, as is the Port of Nice. Enjoy a walk into town along the Promenade and stop for refreshment in one of the many restaurants on the Promenade or on the beach. There is so much to do in Nice and a car is not just unnecessary, it is a nuisance. Copacabana is well served by bus, with services to many parts of the city including the Port, Railway station and Bus station. If you don't fancy walking home after an evening out, the night bus (Noctambus) runs until quite late, at regular intervals. A train or bus ride will bring you to Cannes, or Monaco for the Casino; The Palace or to take a trip in a Ferrari around the Monaco Grand Prix Circuit. Eze, Beaulieu, Menton are very short bus journeys. Or you might wish to visit the markets in Ventimglia in Italy. Buses from just outside the apartment will bring you to Cannes, Vence, Antibes. Grasse etc.
There are many ski resorts within easy reach of Nice and a car is not necessary! Bus and train services operate to bring you to the ski slopes.
There are many golf courses in the area.
Other Activities: Jet skiing, Plane spotting. Skiing, Golf
