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/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 runs alongside the Old Town. Your closest station, Cathédrale – Vieille Ville, is just 2 minutes’ walk away, taking you to Nice Ville station for trains to Italy in the east and Cannes to the west. Local buses pass in both directions on Avenue Félix Faure and Bld Jean Jaurès, including line 98 for the airport.

Thank you for a wonderful stay
Posted on: 18/07/2018

The location is fantastic … can’t beat it . The pictures are accurate of the apartment. 


he manager 

​was very helpful!

I would ABSOLUTELY stay here again
Posted on: 20/07/2018

First, and most importantly, is my wife and I would ABSOLUTELY stay here again. Laura and the local contact, Kate, were extremely responsive and helpful. The apartment was very roomy and CLEAN. We immediately noticed how clean it was when we arrived. But the best part was the location; it was beyond perfect. I don’t think the description does it justice. The location is so phenomenal, we couldn’t stop talking about it the whole trip and are incredibly thankful that we stayed here. It’s right in the main square of Old Town, which is the most happening place in Nice. It’s close walking distance to all the main attractions, like the beach/Promenade des Anglais, Place Massena, Chateau Hill, Cours Saleya, and you can even walk to the central train station. (And even though it’s in the center of Old Town, the windows do a great job of blocking out the street noise).

​ ​

Overall, it was a fantastic apartment, amazing value, wonderful hosts (who greeted us with wine, treats, coffee, and guide books when we arrived), and the best location in Nice. We loved our trip and would definitely stay here again!

What a Nice welcome!

Our stay in Nice was quick and comfortable in Laura’s apartment. Kate, our contact for the apartment, had the AC blowing cold, water in the fridge, and some wine and breadsticks waiting for us when we arrived. What a Nice welcome! Above all else, this place is super convenient in terms of closeness to the busy streets and golden alleyways of the Vieille Ville that you will end up traversing on your way to the sea.

As beautiful as expected!

“This place is as beautiful as expected! The windows were bright and had a great view of the city. The central location was great for getting around. My husband and I felt so comfortable we were so sad to leave. The gift bag with wine, snacks and coffee was a nice touch, and very appreciated since we were too tired for shopping our first day! Otherwise the kitchen has everything you need and includes a dishwasher. Loved having amenities like hair dryer, ac and clothing iron. Yes there are a lot of stairs but it was so worth it! ”

Lovely Little Flat

“Lovely little flat. The stairs were great for us, but we like to keep active. 😀 The square outside is bustling but the double glazing keeps out the noise really well when not wanted. 2 minutes stroll to the beach or the city center. The flat is well equipped with everything you would need. It’s a very immersive experience if you want to be right in the heart of nice, hear the church bells, the street performers, and smell the cooking drifting in through open windows. You can get Socca, fresh flowers fruit and veg from the market each morning. Beware if the 12 o clock daily firework.”

Fantastic little spot

Fantastic little spot in the heart of the old town. Steps away from everything you need (restaurants, pharmacy, tram, etc). The views from the living room are very cute and waking up to the church bells (they sound in the morning) was also super quaint. We went in low season so the streets were quiet at night (even during NYE it was pretty decent with noise levels). Recommended for couples or single travelers that want to be close to attractions. Thanks for hosting us

Stay full of charm

“Apartment in the heart of the most lively and popular area of Nice. On Fourth floor with very high steps ….. beautiful views of the rooftops, bell towers and the square … and luckily a necessary air conditioning in summer, as well as the double glazing (because impossible to sleep the open windows with the hubbub of the street and the restaurants of the place) It was a stay full of charm, in this cozy apartment Nice “
