This is a smart 1960's purpose built block of apartments, all with terraces and central hot water and heating. The building is entered by a large marble foyer with two lifts available. Situated on the second floor, the Living Room, Kitchen and Bedroom all open onto the terrace through large glass doors. The floors are marble tiled and parquet in the bedroom. The whole place was refurbished by an Italian company when I purchased it, to a high standard and has a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with separate toilet. Walls are painted in soft pastels or white providing a clean relaxed ambiance. Simply furnished in imported 1970's Californian Lucite furniture, the light is reflected throughout. This will be my home in retirement so is really a' home from home'. The location is one block in from the sea, off Promenade des Anglais, in a quiet little road away from the flowing traffic. There is no private parking but there are some free spaces underneath although very popular!. Place Massena and old town are about 20 mins. walk .Rue de France is immediately behind with baker, butcher and supermarket. This road is lined with restaurants and interesting shops all the way through to Place Massena and the tramway.

Further details indoors

We prefer bookings for just 2 people but if there is a third (family member ) wishing to stay, or a couple wish to sleep separately, we can offer a very comfortable sofa bed. Additional linen charges will apply.

Please note the sofa bed is across the apartment in the living area and is completely separate from the main bedroom. T

There is Mobile Air condiitoning in the Bedroom only. Fan in the main living area.

Please be aware that although this property is situated in a quiet impasse, it is none-the-less in a city centre and thus can still be subject to normal city noise on the peripherals. Even a quiet city location can never be that country cul-de-sac in the home counties!!

Further details outdoors

Just to add there is a small table and two chairs on the terrace for the morning coffee, chilled lunchtime rosé or perhaps that evening Martini. There is an electric grill for cooking al fresco. The entire terrace is lined with plants providing privacy and a touch of nature. The plants get thirsty too so dont forget to give them some water; Thanks. Love my plants and they will love you back!

Further details


Naturally you wil find iron and ironing board, hairdryer and numerous other items of use in the cupboards. This is my part time home and is equipped accordingly for full time living.

A deposit of 30% is required to hold dates and this is non refundable upon cancellation - sorry, but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

There is a deposit of £250 (cheque) upon arrival to cover damage and this will be destroyed upon cleaning if all is in order.

The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region

Nice is known for its hot summers on the beach and mild sunny days in the winter. Amazing architecture and wonderful restaurants make this an ever popular spot for tourists. Beautiful stretch of coast from St. Tropez to Monaco. There is never enough time to see the whole of this breathaking region. In 1 - 2 hours drive you can reach the Mercantour for walking or raquetting or generally just to enjoy the mountains.


Apart from the obvious beach activities there are many museums, galleries and designer shops in Nice itself. Just wondering the streets to admire the architecture and to stop for a cup of coffee/lunch can fill a whole day. In February there is the carnival but most weekends in the summer there are special events on the promenade which is a haven for cyclists, joggers and bladers. Just a short drive up into the hills gives the most wonderful coastal views and an insight into the luxurious villas hidden away behind trees. Christmas is magical with many extra attractions. There is a shop just in the next road where you can hire pedal bikes and motorised scooters to explore the area.

"Very comfortable and great base for experiencing the cuty and area"

We were made very welcome by Jane who gave us lots of useful tips about the local quarter and getting about. As everyone says the apartment and balcony are well equipped and looked after, very clean a… More

Happy New Year! I can agree that its a great area for local shops - you can pop out in your slippers for bread and milk. Rue de France provides you with every little shop/restaurant you can imagine all the way to Place Massena. Yes, marvellous for the airport bus stop too - virtually right outside. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay so much.

"Perfect appartment"

I have stayed in five apartments in Nice now, and this one has to be the best one, its a fabulous location, just around the corner from the beach, 15 minutes from the main shopping area of Nice.Clean,… More

Thanks Indeed! And may I say my plants have never been so happy since your attentive care. Well done!

"Lovely and safe"

My niece and I stayed for 12 days in July/August. So much has been written already - beautiful interior and terrace, clean, safe and secure. Jane has thought of every single detail and we can only sa… More

Security is a pretty major issue for many staying so I am pleased that you have mentioned this. I came living alone in France in this apartment and always felt very safe in this building and indeed the quartier.

I thought the little beach chairs would go down well - just to get one's 'butt' off the pebbles.

Your kind words are appreciated.

"Lovely apartment"

We spent 10 days in July at the apartment and had a wonderful holiday. The apartment is light, spacious and clean. We especially loved the terrace where we enjoyed chilling out and having the odd m… More

Marvelous! And did I mention that if you walk along the promenade towards the airport, there is a little cove where the local fisherman sell their fresh catch just ready to be put on the grill. All that is needed is a dribble of olive oil and a twist of lemon (the rest of the lemon can go in the gin and tonic :)-

"Lovely apt in Nice"

We spent two weeks in Nice visiting our daughter during her year abroad. La Barchetta was the perfect place for us to stay being only a few blocks from our daughters apt in the city on Rue de France. … More

Ahh my plants!! Yes I love them and its great when others do too!
It certainly was handy for your daughter, perfectly placed, and I was really pleased to have had the opporunity to meet all of you.

"Quiet apartment in the heart of Nice"

My husband and I had a lovely 7 night Spring break in Nice staying in the apartment. It is hard to add to the other reviews in that really is a lovely apartment . It has a real continental feel to it… More

May is a lovely time to visit Nice and its always good to hear that a great time was had by all. Thank you for your kind words - great to think that my constant little additions to the apartment are appreciated.
Hope to see you again !!

"home away from home"

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend 8 wonderful nights in this lovely apartment. We felt at home from the very first moment we entered .The apartment is very tastefully decorated and has every… More

You know, ten years ago when I first walked into this apartment I felt at home. It was one of those happy feelings which caused me to rush down to the agents the next day and put down my deposit to purchase. I have never felt anything differently since! So pleased you picked up on the same vibes - it can make all the difference between a holiday rental and a holiday home. Oh, and by the way, its 1st November and we are still taking balmy evening walks by the sea ...albeit it dark now.

"Great personal touches"

This is a lovely one bedroom apartment with many great personal touches like guide books and dictionaries available. The apartment is situated one road back from the seafront Promenade des Anglais, an… More

Thank you for your review. As you mention this is a bustling residential area of the town with the advantage of all facilities and commodities but no lorries trundling by in the street underneath. It is only the residents coming backwards and forewards. Street noise is negligable compared to the inner city centre. Its a great advantage and why I purchased this as my home. I am pleased you found lots of useful things to hand as well.

"Charming and comfortable apartment a stone's throw from the sea"

This apartment is furnished with both style and comfort in mind. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering, and the terrace is a delightful sun trap. We particularly appreciated the bed linen and… More

Hi there, its great to hear you enjoyed the apartment and its proximity to everything. Also that you benefitted from all the info and recommendations. We do try to offer as much advice as we can. It was really lovely to meet you both and hope you might come back again one day.

"Lovely, convenient, comfortable"

Lovely apartment perfectly situated between Promenade des Anglais (for strolling, beach, restaurants) and Ave. de France (for shopping, sundries). Jane is so welcoming and helpful. She supplied every… More

May I just say we were happy to help out on your last day, that's what we are here for! We are always on hand for our guests, and understanding that most have international mobile phones, we provide a landline for instant contact, unless we are out partying:)- should any help or information be needed. Pleased to hear you had a comfortable stay and enjoyed the proximity to the sea. All best.
