Outside Space

From late morning to early afternoon the small balcony is usually blessed with sunshine.  A table for two offers the opportunity to sit out and watch the theatre of street life unfold below while you sip your morning coffee or have a bite of lunch. 


The bedroom is situated at the back of the apartment, away from the hustle and bustle of the street and double-glazed to offer you a tranquil nights’ sleep (bed;200×160). There is a wardrobe and chest of drawers for storage and the bathroom is ensuite. 

(If you wish to use the extra sleeping space provided, then the sofabed in the living room sleeps two. Please note, there is an additional cost for sofabed linen and towels which can be purchased when you book this property) 


Comfort where you need it, the bathroom has been meticulously fitted out with a large corner shower cubicle including downpour shower, heated towel rail and large basin area with plenty of storage. 

Living Area

The living area has French windows that open out onto the small balcony, two comfortable sofas and beautiful wooden floorboards. With windows at both the front and back of the apartment there is plenty of air on warm summer nights.  When you tire of watching the street life below a TV, with DVD player, music system and wifi are at your disposal to meet your entertainment needs. 

Kitchen and Dining Area

The kitchen/dining area is a contemporary blend of rustic and modern features and will please the holiday chef if you ever need a break from the countless restaurants on your doorstep. The corner kitchen has a tiled floor and is well equipped with an open-plan dining area and table to seat six. It has an electric oven with 4 hobs, a microwave, toaster and the convenience of a dishwasher and washing machine.  


The Old Town is the historical and geographical centre of Nice and so Françoise is perfectly placed to access all areas of the city. Flanked on one side by the Promenade du Paillon, a beautiful park of fountains, greenery and a magnificent children’s play area, and the Colline du Chateau on the other, the Vieille Ville is also a stone’s throw from the beach and so really is a wonderful location. The colourful blend of yellows, ochres and terracotta gives the perfect holiday feel as you stroll around the narrow streets soaking up the atmosphere. It is home to small boutiques, a plethora of restaurants, cafes, bars and galleries; a veritable treasure trove of sights and sounds just waiting to be discovered.  

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.

Fantastic!! Charming apartment in the heart of Old Town. I do not think there can be a better place. The apartment has everything you will need. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the sights and sounds of Old Town. We’ll be back next year!

 ‘Well done! You have a wonderful place in a great location. We’ll be back next year.’ 

Apartment is beautiful

The host Paul was fantastic, very welcoming and friendly and the apartment is beautiful, true to the pictures. The location couldn’t be better, right in the Old Town where there are many places to explore. Less than a 10 minute walk to the beach too, which was ideal. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Would definitely go back there again.

The apartment was fantastic

The apartment was fantastic and exactly like the photos. Super clean with a beautiful balcony to enjoy breakfast every morning. YNA, Kate, and Paul were all incredibly helpful and provided quick answers to any questions, even late at night. Already booked another stay with them!

Location is excellent and very comfortable apartment

“Lovely comfortable apartment, very well presented with all you could need for a trip to Nice. Location is excellent situated in the old town but only a short stroll to the promenade and sea but most importantly has a boulangerie a couple of doors down to grab some fresh croissant and baguette for breakfast. Highly recommend. ”

Very nice appartment

Very nice apartment quiet and relaxing in the Old Nice, close to all activities and shops

Charming neighbourhood
Posted on: 07/03/2018

Overall, the stay was great — the apartment is spacious and clean and the wifi works well. The old town neighbourhood is charming and there’s tons of restaurants nearby and a Carrefour for groceries next door. I would definitely stay again. Thanks Laura and Kate!

Everything was perfect

I stayed in this apartment for September and October, that means during a first month with lots of tourists, and a second one with many fewer. Hence, at least for the first month, I expected noise from the bustling street with restaurants and shops as the price to pay for the excitement of living in the old city. But no, the apartment is surprisingly quiet! In particular, the bedroom, which is in the back, allows for a deep undisturbed sleep. Further, this apartment is nicely furnished, with nice little design touches, and it was sparkling clean when I arrived. Also, I prefer not to be bothered by overbearing hosts, and these hosts were just as I like them, normally “invisible” but responding in an instant when I had a question. And of course, as I am normally living far from the sea, the closeness to the “Prom” was a special plus. So, if you have similar preferences, this apartment is for you! All in all, a very pleasant experience!

Great Apartment

Nice flat, very well situated in the “vieux Nice”, well equipped.”

Wonderful stay

“Had a wonderful stay in this apartment on the edge of old town Nice. Less than ten minutes on foot to the market and the waterfront, and plenty of restaurants just below. The apartment was completely spotless and spacious, and although there’s no AC the provided fans worked quite well to keep the place cool. The balcony is a real treat. All exactly as shown in the pictures, and checkin/checkout was super simple. Would stay here again if I ever make it back to Nice!”

Truly a wonderful place

“This place was in a wonderful location for a terrific price! Literally a five minute walk to the beach and a 30 second stroll to gelato; what could be better?! My husband and I went during Europe’s heatwave so fair warning: there is no A/C! But once the heatwave broke, it was bearable. Kate was so responsive when we had an issue with our keys and met with us to show us what the issue was (turns out, it was us!) Truly a wonderful place!”

Fantastic location
