The location is perfect

“We had a great time staying in Grace’s apartment. The location is perfect, close to the market, restaurants and the sea. The apartment is spacious and comfortable and has all the facilities you could need.”

We can’t wait to book again

I took my two teenage boys, aged 15 and 18, to Nice for the first time.  Worrying about the prospect of having to deal with teenagers moaning about having to holiday with their mum quickly disappeared the moment we entered our lovely apartment in the Old Town.  Alouette is such a cosy, elegant and spacious apartment and it could not be more well placed.  I was able to escape to the beach at 11am, leaving the children still in bed! – come out of the apartment building, turn right, go past the restaurants, and the sea faces you – glistening from the sunshine, even in mid October!  YNA listened to everything I asked for – ask for Jake – and they truly made this short holiday a magical experience.  Tips – if you want the best and most affordable expensive restaurants do book ahead – even before you fly to Nice.  Do your research about taking the bus to Monaco so you don’t end up trying to eat somewhere after 2.30pm!  Thank you YNA and we can’t wait to book again.

Cosy and comfortable
Posted on: 05/05/2017

This is a lovely apartment. It was very clean and in the perfect location. The stairs are quite a climb with the luggage but otherwise not too bad. It’s good to be up on the top floor because this neighborhood can be loud at night. We had an amazing time in Nice.

Hosts were great
Posted on: 05/05/2017

The location is absolutely ideal. The apartment is as listed, but please know that this is a 6 floor walk-up with no elevator access. The communication and responsiveness from the Hosts was great. They responded and addressed every request. We really enjoyed staying here.

Perfect apartment for our trip

The apt was perfect for our trip. Great location in the heart of old Nice! The apt was cute and the AC kept us nice and cool.

Loved it all.

Very central and characterful location, close to sea and in the middle of the old town. Clean and comfortable apartment. Airy and bright. Well equipped. Washing powder etc provided. The air con was very effective in the bedrooms. Met by a friendly coordinator, on time.

Charming apartment in the Old town
Posted on: 20/06/2017

We’ve stayed at this lovely apartment several times, and have thoroughly enjoyed both the apartment and its location. It is in the buzzing centre of the Old Town, in a charming cobbled street, but also provides a peaceful and relaxing haven and feels far from the hustle and bustle. It has all the necessary mod cons and is comfortable and inviting

Stones throw away from the seafront
Posted on: 20/06/2017

A lovely apartment in an ideal location for exploring Nice. We loved the lively streets and quirky shops and enjoyed sampling the restaurants, that were not too pricey. It is also a stones throw from the sea front where we had an excellent meal and dip in the sea. Bus stops are nearby, its a short ride to Monaco, which is well worth a visit. Alouette also has extremely comfortable beds – I slept like a log! All in all a wonderful holiday experience that we are going to re-book in the new year.

Ideally placed
Posted on: 20/06/2017

Alouette has served us well on a number of occasions.  The apartment is very comfortable and the facilities are excellent.  It is ideally placed as a centre for exploring Nice itself while public transport brings the whole Riviera within reach.  What is more we ended our breaks rather fitter than we had been when we arrived.

Never disappointed with YNA
Posted on: 20/06/2017

We stayed in Alouette in January 2015. The apartment is situated in a very beautiful building in the Old Town of Nice. Although right in the centre of the bustling Old Town, our stay was very quiet and tranquil as the apartment is on the top floor of the building.  As you climb the stairs of the 17th century building you can’t help but start to wonder about the lives of all those who had climbed the stairs before you over the last 400 years.

The apartment is charming and very well equipped. Although only 2 of us stayed, it would be easily big enough for 6 to share, with a large the main room and two good sized bedrooms. We slept like logs in the very peaceful main bedroom. Although in January we didn’t need the air conditioning, our previous visits to Nice in the summer mean we know just what an added bonus it will be for those visiting in the hotter months. The bathroom was great, and certainly bigger than normal. 

Access to the whole of the Old Town is right outside the main building front door and we would recommend the Antique market in the Cours Saleya on a Monday and a walk through the beautiful Coulee Verte any day of the week. If you turn right out of the apartment and continue along the Rue Droite, you can visit the famous 17th century Palais Lascaris and then go further along to enjoy lunch in the typically French Petit Lascaris restaurant, a definite favourite of ours on our visits to Nice.

Our trips to Nice never disappoint and our stay in the lovely Alouette was fabulous and will no doubt be repeated in the years to come.

Comfortable and fab location

“We very much enjoyed our stay at Alouette. It is located right in the heart of Old Town Nice with an easy walk to the beach, the tram, the supermarket and hundreds of restaurants! It was clean and tidy and a lovely place to relax after a day of exploring. The kitchen is well-equipped so you can cook yourself if you choose to but with so many options nearby you may not need it. It is on the top floor with many steps so you need to be prepared to walk up the steps. The apartment was a comfortable stay for our family of six.

First class visit

Central location in old town and clean, they were also very accommodating with check in and checkout. 

Central apartment in the Old Town
Posted on: 16/08/2017

Very centrally located flat in an old house in the heart of the old town. The flat has Air conditioning which was very comfortable given the heat in August in Nice. Overall clean, light and with comfortable beds. A bit noisy but nothing too bothering if you are used to big cities. The flat managers were very responsive and helpful. Overall a nice stay in the heart of Nice! Thanks!

I highly recommend

Great Old town gem
Posted on: 03/01/2018

Large and comfortable house. The area is very beautiful, in the old part of the city but very close to the center, which can easily be reached on foot. The house was exactly as we expected

Beautiful space, excellent location
Posted on: 23/07/2018

Beautiful space, excellent location. The air conditioning was such a blessing! We had amazing dinners, loved the beach (3 minute walk), and went to the market often.

Outstanding apartment!
Posted on: 07/08/2018

Outstanding apartment! Me and four friends had a great time in Nice and our stay in the old town greatly contributed to the enjoyable experience. There are a plethora of amazing restaurants and tourist attractions walking distance from the apartment. Nightlife in the area is a lot of fun. From booking the apartment to checking out, there were zero issues. Every aspect of the apartment was better than we anticipated, and communication was quick and informative; especially pertaining to restaurant recommendations. Overall, our stay was very enjoyable and I would definitely stay here again.
