About the property

2 Bedroom Apartment Paces from Place Garibaldi, On the Edge of the Old Town.

A perfectly situated, totally refurbished apartment with full air conditioning. It is on the 2nd floor with no lift, but the staircase is wide and shallow as there are half landings, which make it very easy to negotiate. The apartment has two, equal size, double bedrooms, A bed for a 5th person can be provided for with an air mattress. The apartment has free Wifi, 42" HD TV, Blue Ray player with a large selection of movie discs and cd's. Fully equipped American Kitchen with Hob, Microwave Oven, Dish Washer, Washer Dryer, Fridge and small freezer compartment. Oak dining table and seating for 6 people. English owned and it is our second home. Ample storage space for clothing and suitcases. In the bathroom there are his and hers wash hand basins, a shower cubicle, wc and corner bath (Unusual for French apartments). There is also a separate wc, convenient for 2 but essential for 4 or more people. The bedrooms are at the rear of the apartment facing a courtyard area which is very quiet so undisturbed sleep with the windows open at night is possible. From one of the lounge windows you can see the entrance to the recently opened Coulee Verte. Place Garibaldi is the center hub for Cafes, transport, both Buses and Tramway to Airport, Station, Monaco and many other places en route. The location has the advantage of being close to the Old Town without the late night noise from partying revelers. If you like fresh seafood then the world famous Cafe de Turin is in the next building, book early to avoid disappointment. The double glazed windows are really efficient in blocking out any noise from outside, so you can enjoy the apartment in total peace and quiet.

About Brindsley Wright

Retired ex builder, absolutely love the South of France, Nice especially. So many excellent restaurants and a lovely place to explore especially the Old Town and the surrounding villages. So close to the mountains for winter skiing and plenty to see and do in the town itself. It took me a long time to find my apartment and it was worth the wait. I bought two 1 bed places and created a one 2 Bed apartment. As it was refurbished by a Marchand du Bien French builder the quality was assured and I had a lot of my own designs incorporated in the rebuild. The location was paramount as I wanted peace and quiet to sleep at night but be close enough to the action when I wanted it. Place Garibaldi is the center hub for tram and bus transport for the Airport, Railway Station, Cannes and Monaco.

Belle, as we call it, ticked all the boxes and the name suits the apartment, Beautiful.

Why Brindsley Wright chose Vieille Ville

Is perfectly located on the edge of the Old Town away from the noisy late night street revelers but close enough to enjoy and explore the narrow streets with many shops and restaurants. It is only paces from Place Garibaldi which, in my opinion is the coolest square in Nice.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is dual aspect so the bedrooms are at the rear of the apartment facing a private courtyard, so it is very quiet at night and possible to sleep undisturbed with the windows open. The bathroom, as well as a separate shower, has a corner bath, quite unique for french apartments.

Perfect location, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Brin's flat. It's perfectly located - right on the edge of the old town and a short ten minute (or less) walk to the beach, but on a very quiet street with no noise. We were travelling with two toddlers so we also very much appreciated having a monoprix grocery story right across the street as well as a big park with awesome playgrounds. Child-friendly restaurants very close too, and tram/bus-stops. Brin was kind enough to supply a cot, and let us check in early and leave late, which made our stay as easy as could be. Easy to find and Brin and his housekeeper Roxana were both extremely communicative and pleasant to deal with the whole way through. Heartily recommend!

Super apartment....great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It is accurately described and photographed - clean, well equipped and in a great location. It is close to all amenities with easy transport links. Place Garibaldi is a bustling part of of Nice but the apartment is quiet and peaceful in a traditional French building. It is nicely furnished and the beds were super comfortable! Great communication with the owner Brin. A nice touch is that there is a small supply of condiments, tea and coffee which is great when you are flying in on a short break. A small point but just makes life easier. We would highly recommend this apartment and would stay there again.

Beautiful, clean, quiet, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Overall wonderful. Second floor with the easiest stairs I've seen in eaurop, clean and fonctional, perfect location (and I'm in Nice every year). Landlord kind and helpful! Could use more lighting in the bedrooms. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review of my apartment and we welcome you to stay again at any time. We had considered putting ceiling lights in the bedrooms but this would entail fitting a false ceiling which means that the natural oak beams would be concealed in the void. As they are a feature of the apartment we decided against the idea. We are however looking for suitable standard lamps.

We found the property to be exactly as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed 5 nights and found the property to be just as described by the owner.

We were a party of 3 Americans, My boyfriend, my sister and me. The location was excellent. The grocery market across the street was convenient. The beach area was nearby.

We walked everywhere we went, never even used the public transportation which was also just outside the door.

We dined at 4 Michelin rated properties within walking distance!

The beds and pillows were comfortable, which is very important to me.

We were met on schedule to receive the keys and the young lady was helpful to answer any questions we had throughout our stay.

The apartment had a handbook with local transportation schedules, television information, instruction for operation of appliances etc.

The only downside is no overhead lighting in the bedrooms made it difficult to see in the closet for changing clothes in the evening. We found it difficult to understand the European combination washer/dryer system.

Overall we were very happy with our selection and eager to recommend it to future guest.

Great location and apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment with a great location for walking to old and new town. Easy access to trams and train station for journeys to Monaco, Antibes and Cannes which only took 20-25 mins to all 3 places and well worth doing.

The apartment was very clean and bright with all amenities needed. The only problem we had was that the air conditioning was not working properly and as we had to open windows at night to let some fresh air in it became very noisy. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a positive review, I am so sorry that the air conditioning was not cooling efficiently during your stay. As soon as it was reported to us that it was faulty we arranged for a specialist to repair it. I am pleased to say that it is now working and I am sorry that you were unable to benefit from it.
