Marjolaine is a romantic getaway nestling into the eaves of the Old Town, with views up to the waterfall on Colline du Chateau and down to the myriad restaurants below. A steep set of stairs take you up to this charming 1-bedroom apartment on the 4th floor, and although the climb is not for the faint hearted the reward is worth every step. The coloured dome of the cathedral, the terracotta roof tiles, the bells ringing out and the vibrant life of the central Square of Vieux Nice below create the charm of this beautifully refurbished hideaway.

Address: Place Halle Aux Herbes, Nice, France

Floor/Building: 4th floor, no lift

Steep steps but the view is worth it!

The kitchen is open plan for convivial meal preparation tempting you to sample the local produce on sale at the Cours Saleya market or the numerous fresh pasta shops. It includes an electric oven with hobs, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, cafetière and kettle.


There is a cosy yet sophisticated feel to the bedroom, with wooden flooring, a large window, matching wooden furniture for storage and large double bed. A rarity in the Old Town, Marjolaine benefits from a reversible A/C system, maintaining an ideal sleeping temperature year-round


The en-suite bathroom, with a shower cubicle, basin and toilet, is fully tiled in bright, white tiles with contemporary stainless-steel fittings

Living and dining area

Two sets of tall French windows allow in the Côte d’Azur light and give you the opportunity to gaze out across the rooftops from the sofa or armchair. A decorative fireplace and exposed wooden beam fill this space with charm, only rivalled by the allure of the life floating up from the streets below. There is also a circular dining table to seat four should you wish to do some entertaining and a wall-mounted TV for some downtime.


Next to the Cathedral of St Réparate and overlooking the historic square of Place Rosetti at the heart of the Old Town, this is a place from which to live and breathe the Niçois lifestyle. A famous ice-cream parlour on your doorstep, not to mention the boutiques, bars, galleries and museums, make this quartier a great place to stay. Just a 4-minute walk from the beach and with easy access to public transport, this is an ideal holiday location for first-time visitors or Nice aficionados alike.


There are several carparks for the Old Town although traffic is restricted in the narrow streets. Try Parking Corvesy at 3 Rue Alexandre Mari, or Vinci Car Parking under Cours Saleya.

Public transport

The tram system in Nice has recently developed and there are now 3 tram lines facilitating travel across the city and meeting up with the many buses. Line 3 (approx. 4:23am to 0:45am) connects the airport to the Alliance Riviera stadium, National Museum of Sport and St Isidore shopping centre. Line 2 (approx. 4:45 am to 1:10 am) connects the airport to many stops along the promenade and then onto the centre of Nice, the Old Town and the port. Line 1 (approx. 4:25 am to 1:25 am) meets line 2 on the main shopping avenue of Jean Médecin and then goes north to Nice Ville train station (Gare Thiers) and on through the market neighbourhood of Liberation, or in the opposite direction passing the Old Town, Place Garibaldi for the Bonaparte neighbourhood and onwards to the exhibition centre and the main hospital, Pasteur. Buy your tickets from machines on platforms before boarding: a one-way ticket costs €1.50 (bus/tram changes included up to 74 mins) or you can buy ten tickets for €10 and other passes. All tickets must be stamped onboard.
