Nice Port Apartment
About the home
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.

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.

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.
