About the property

2 apartments in Old Town

This 18thC property is part of one of the original 9 doorways into lively old Vieux Nice and just steps to all the action. Steeped in history and facing the famous, recently renovated and rejuvenated Place St Francois with its many fine food shops, restaurants and markets. Now pedestrianized, the square is home to artists, musicians and entertainers who seem to randomly pop in for everyones delight. Conveniently close to trams and buses where for only 1.50€ you can explore the Cote D'Azur and Maritimes areas. Perfect Location for everywhere.

These are our family holiday homes and well maintained. Unlike most of Vieux Nice apartments, here you have easy access only a few steps up from the street. Although we are close to all Vieux Nice's bustling cobbled streets and alleys, the apartments are much more peaceful and quiet than the rest of the Old Town, so you can look forward to a good nights sleep on good quality, comfy, beds. portable air /con unit or ceiling fans and heaters for your extra comfort, and you'll also find more than enough wardrobe and cupboard space.

Our family have enjoyed so many wonderful holidays in Nice. Spring and Autumn for sightseeing and shopping. Summer for water sports and beaches. Winter for skiing in the 4 resorts only an hour away. A few years ago we realised our dream to buy our own little 'place in the sun', and 2014 our son has joined us in buying the apartment next door. These are our family holiday homes and perhaps for retirement in the future.

ATHENA ROBINSON purchased this apartment in 2010

Why ATHENA ROBINSON chose Old Town

We just love the charm and uniqueness of Vieux Nice. We chose Place St Francois in The Old Town which couldn't be in a better location. right in the centre of everything, yet quiet and easy to get to. Public transport is amazing, reliable and convenient and generally only 1.50euro p/f. So many beautiful places to explore on our days out, with Monaco and Italy to the east and the beautiful French Riviera to the west. Just couldn't get any better and we just love coming back again, and again, and again

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is in the heart of the Old Town, yet its quiet at night. Another real advantage is that access is easy - unlike most of the apartments here!

Although close to Vieux Nice's bustling cobbled streets and alleys, the apartments face the infamous Place St Francois and away from the frantic pace of the heart of the Old town. Traditional 17th-C building but with all modern conveniences. Perfectly situated for exploring the French Riviera, a stroll down to the beach, shopping, restaurants and night life.

Wonderful, relaxing holiday. Lovely accommodation in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Nice. The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and well stocked. The location is perfect for exploring Nice.

We were looked after from the start with a taxi organised for us as we were arriving late and Pat was very welcoming and helpful.

We would highly recommend this property.

Right in the heart of old town

  • 4 of 5

First off, the owner and her local person, Pat, were amazing to work with. They truly went out of their way to help us throughout our stay. Second, the location could not be better if you are wanting to stay right in old town. Tons of restaurants right outside your door. The metro and bus options are close and amazing. The only things that we would have liked to have had was a freezer and an oven because we do like to cook a little on our own. Also, the space is quite small for a 2+ week stay, but everything in the apartment was very nice. We still highly recommend this place and thoroughly enjoyed our time in Nice.

Great Location in Nice Old Town

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Athena’s apartment in Nice Old Town for 5 nights. We found the apartment very comfortable and clean. We are fit, so walking up 3 flights of stairs wasn’t a problem.

It was a pleasure for us to prepare a hearty breakfast in the well-equipped kitchen each morning before heading out for the day. The location was wonderful for exploring Old Town’s many charms as well as for taking day trips to other places by local bus. The #81 bus that took us to Villfranche-sur-mer and Cap Ferrat was less than a 10-minute walk away from the apartment, and the #100 bus that took us to Monaco was less than a 20-minute walk away.

Athena and Pat (local agent) were helpful in promptly answering any questions we had before and after our arrival. The apartment was excellent value for what we paid.

Charming apartment perfectly located in old town Nice

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Pat met us on arrival and was extremely helpful. And the bread , milk , wine and cheese was a nice welcoming touch.

The apartment is charming and perfectly located in the old town with plenty of bars restaurants and shops close by.

So much to do in Nice and the surrounding areas, a week is never enough.

Hope to visit again soon.

Fabulous old city apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean, modern and comfortable. Fridge, stove, tea kettle, microwave, dishes and most everything else you could need (corkscrew for example!) were in place. Everything we expected and more. The location is terrific, just a minute or two from a tram stop and right in the middle of the bustling streets of the Old City.

We didn't have any trouble meeting up with the manager upon arrival, she was super friendly and gave us all sorts of useful tips about the area. She was a pleasure to meet.

We really enjoyed our stay!

Main train stations very convenient.
