Nice Pebbles: Francois
About the home
Francois is flooded with light from windows on three sides and is bright and airy during the day. The main south facing French doors complete with a sun drenched Juliette balcony capture breathtaking views from the majestic building of the Opera De Nice, the Cours Saleya and the ancient church of St Francois de Paul.
Inside with its stunning blend of antique and modern furniture, and opulent stylish décor its easy to see why Francois is one of our most popular apartments.
Its location is right in the heart of everything, between the Old Town and the beach. It is a fabulous location. Just one street back from the sea and promenade, the famous Beau Rivage beach is less than a minute walk away, while the Cours Saleya with its daily bustling markets and the old town with Nice's best restaurants are literally on your doorstep. The tram stop is one minute walk away and the bus station and supermarket less than a five minute stroll.
Please note: The advertised nightly price is based on a week stay. You will pay more than the nightly rate for a stay of less than seven days. The longer you stay with us, the better the rate.

Francois was my second rental in Nice from Riviera Pebbles. The first was one of their more low end apartments which I enjoyed a lot. My second visit was in the off season, so I decided to treat... more

The apartment is very well matched with the pictures on Nice Pebbles web pages. Location is excellent in the heart of old Nice just few steps away from lively Cours Saleya where you have plenty of restaurants to choose from. Every morning there is also market where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruits, paistries, flowers.. you name it! Very lovely place. You can find everything from the apartment you might need during your stay: cooking appliances, fridge, refrigerator, diswasher, washing machine, TV, DVD-player with movies, air conditioning and staff from Nice pebbles is reachable if you need to ask something. The person wellcoming us was exactly there where we agreed to meet. Everything was very smoothly organized.
If there is something negative to say about this apartment it is thin walls. The building is very old and soundproofing is not that effective. The apartment is on the top floor and I think now one else was living there, but there was a renovation process going on in nearby flat and they started every moening around 8:00 AM and we were having a holiday... Not so nice combination. I think it would be good if flat owners would inform Pebbles about these kind of things to let the renting people know. Other small minues is that the apartment is on the fifth floor and there is no lift. It was okay for us, since we are youg people and in good shape.
This was our second trip to Nice second rental from Nice Pebbles, and there will definitely going to be a third one as well! :)
Thank you for taking the time to review the Pebbles Francois apartment, especially for your tips about the walls and daily markets. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in Nice, and we hope to see you again soon!

From arriving in Nice to the close of our holiday everything was splendid.
Kelly, Nice Pebbles agent, met us outside of Nice opera house and took us to the
apartment which was directly opposite! The apartment itself was very welcoming, well equiped with everything you may need. Being situated so near to the flower market and its restaurants there is a constant buzz of activity yet not really that noisy!
The beach is only a couple of hundred yards away, so near, very convenient as is the tram stop which is about the same distance in the other direction! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment ,will certainly use Nice Pebbles again.
Thank you for sharing your holiday experiences with us. We're pleased to know that you had a splendid holiday. We really value these reviews, so we greatly appreciate you taking the time to write about our Francois apartment.
