About the property

Apartment, Studio, 1 Shower, (Sleeps 3)

A fabulous, fully-equipped studio apartment with breathtaking panoramic views of the sea, mountains, Chateau Hill and rooftops of Old Nice. Located in a former palace just a few steps from the famous Cours Saleya, beach and Promenade des Anglais, in the heart of Nice's Old Town.

The apartment building is located in a side street just a few metres from the Cours Saleya, which is home to the famous daily flower and local produce market. A wide variety of restaurants and bars are also situated here.

The wonderful listed building is a former palace dating from the 18th Century and was originally built by a wealthy banker to house Nice's aristocracy. It is truly majestic with a magnificent entrance hall concealed behind the main front door and wide sweeping stairways.

The apartment gets the benefit of wonderful sunshine for most of the daytime in summer with outstanding panoramic views of the evening sunset over the bay androoftops of Old Nice from both the main room and the kitchen. There is also an unobstructed view of Chateau Hill from a separate window next to the dining area. Chateau Hill and it's waterfall are very clearly visible and are beautifully illuminated at night.

Located on the top floor (sixth floor - no lift) it is therefore very quiet whilst benefiting from a superb central location and fantastic views. It is also kept cool during the daytime, courtesy of the heavy metal shutters to the windows and balcony doors.

This property is unique in that it is the only Old Town property that I, or any estate agents that I have spoken to, know of that benefits from these stunning panoramic views. It really is a very special apartment in a most magnificent building.

Would suit a romantic break for a couple or a couple with one or two small children.

We have many regular guests who return time and time again. Please read the full guest book, taken from the studio, at the apartment's website (address below).

We look forward to welcoming you to the studio.

Stunning views, good value

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. Prior to arrival, we were sent detailed information about the apartment, area, and arrival instructions. We arrived at the airport and took a bus over to Old Nice. Unfortunately, we got off at the wrong stop, and had to walk several minutes. We made it to the correct street, but missed the building in the dark. Luckily, Matthew was there waiting for us and called after us.

The description of the apartment is accurate, including the 7 flights of stairs up to the apartment. We were aware of this and prepared to carry our luggage as well as make the trip a few times a day. However, if you are in poor health this may not be the best place for you.

The apartment is small, but comfortable. The best part were the views from every window and the balcony. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony at various times of day.

The location right in the middle of Old Nice and a couple streets from the cours saleya was very convenient. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the area. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Why The Owner chose Vieille Ville

Having holidayed in the South of France during most summers of my childhood, I fell in love with the French Riviera and the vibrant atmosphere and beauty of Nice, in particular. The studio is the most unique property I have seen in the Old Town as the combination of outside space plus panoramic views of the sea, mountains, rooftops and Chateau Hill waterfall is a real rarity in that area. The views never cease to amaze, no matter the season or weather!
