Nice Port Apartment
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This apartment has just been totally renovated to provide a light, airy feel. With it's high ceilings and full length windows, it is a relaxing and comfortable space. The new kitchen has all modern facilities and is a pleasure to cook in (unlike typical French apartments it is spacious and totally fitted). This apartment would suit anyone who wants access to all of the pleasures of Nice but also wants to escape the traffic and noise of the busier old town areas. It is a 10 minute walk along the sea front into the main areas for markets and shopping and outside cafe's. As taxi's are not easily found at night this is a huge bonus for anyone wanting to stay out later on in the evening.
The port itself is still very traditionally French rather than the more touristy areas. On your doorstep you have all the local shops, restaurants, cafe's, banks, pharmacies etc that you would need and the port front is only one block away. As well as the main beach of Nice itself, there is a small beach less than 5 minutes walk away. There are also some fantastic swimming spots here and sunbathing platforms with lovely views. It tends to be used more by the local French so remains quiet during the week.
The main buses all stop in Nice port and the bus stop is 5 mins walk away. The train station is 10 mins walk but between the two you have easy access to the whole of the Cote D'Azur.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The warmest and driest area of France which is a pleasure to visit all year round. There are loads of museums, art galleries and shopping areas in Nice itself, as well as fantastic viewpoints and outside cafe's for people watching.
There is a jazz festival every August, Nice carnival in February and loads of activites taking place on the Promenade des Anglaises. You can visit the Matisse museum, the Modern Art Gallery, the Renoir Museum, just to name a few. Monaco is easily reached by train or bus to visit the Casino, the port, the cathedral and view the Grand Priz circuit! Antibes, Juan les Pins, and Golfe Juan are all easily reached by bus or train to provide additional beaches and shopping. The medieval hill top village of Eze is close by and worth a visit for the views and the atmosphere and Villefranche-sur-Mer is also worth visiting for the views and waterside dining.

Tamsin and her husband very helpful on our arrival . Apartment had everything catered for, perfect for a couple staying.
Good restaurants nearby and if you want to eat in the apartment it has everything you need.
take the local bus 100 to Monaco and to a lovely place called Menton for only 1.30 euro.
Had a very enjoyable week, lovely apartment, lovely food and lovely weather !!!!!
Would definitely stay again.

"Lovely break in port region"
Nicely appointed apartment close to the port with easy access to the port, local beaches and around the corner from the 'old town'. Spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need. … More

This is not a review for my property. I verified it before checking the name of the guest - often the partner does a review in a couple when the other person booked it so I just pressed it to verify it. As you can see from the review the apartment they are referring to is in Paris, not Nice.

"Wonderful week in Nice"
Stayed here for a week with my wife and 2 young kids. Owner organised a taxi for us which was a great call. When the airline broke our buggy, Tamsin kindly gave us a loan of hers which was brilliant. The apartment was in a great location, bus and train within easy walking distance. Apartment was nice,area was quite at night and even had wifi that wasn't advertised which was a nice bonus. Apartment was very well equipped,very well furnished with great attention to detail. Will definitely recommend to friends and hopefully will get back to it ourselves some time.

"Charming apartment. Great location."
As a travel writer, where I stay is important to me. I decided to book an apartment for my second visit to Nice and chose this one because, simply, the photos looked nice. I could not have picked better. The apartment is spacious, clean, modern, yet full of character. High ceilings. Large windows with shutters. An excellent kitchen for making meals in. It's quiet, which is important, and the bed, comfortable. The owner left everything at hand. We could not have wanted for more. Plus being in the Port, you have great restaurants nearby as well as a sense of being in a more local neighbourhood. Loved it. Would not hesitate to recommend or to return.
