Gabrielle reminds us of the classic movie ‘A room with a View’ with Helen Bonham Carter and the enigmatic Julian Sands, but set in Nice. Terracotta rooftops, colourful cathedral domes and Niçoise life is laid out before you from the rooftop wrap around balcony that extends the full length of this studio apartment. The decor is as classic as the movie with unique modern twists. The location is central, with Nice on your doorstep just waiting to be explored. The cherry on the cake as there is a lift too.

Address: 11 Avenue Georges Clemenceau, Nice

Floor/ Building: 5th floor with lift

Outside Space

Imagine waking up and walking out of French doors that lead out onto your own private balcony that wraps around the entire apartment. Choose which view you wish to take in from the two seating areas in the clouds!


Although no official bedroom, the open plan areas are nicely spaced out and defined. So, the bedroom area with a comfy kingsize bed feels like it has it’s own separate space.  
Even the bathroom has views and french windows and of course the essential shower cubicle, toilet and sink.
Living Area
The studio has a comfy king size bed in the middle of the room and is surrounded by original decor such as the marble fireplace and original tiled floors.
The decor is a mixture of classic and modern with oak, gilt mirrors teamed with two cosy velvet armchairs perfect to relax with a glass of wine whilst cooking. A Philip Starck transparent perspex chair to add a contemporary twist. Team this with a 26″ LCD TV (French and English speaking news channels), DVD/CD player, radio/ mp3 player and internet access and you have a stylish studio with modern conveniences.
There are even views while you cook from the modern light kitchen that has a four ring electric hob, microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine, kettle, toaster and cafetière. The French doors lead out onto the balcony.
Dining Area
There is a dining table and chairs for two in the kitchen and also on the balcony. There are two comfy armchairs as well.

Gabrielle is just in the area of Musiciens with its tall, prestigious buildings. Walk out of your door and the main shopping area of Avenue Jean Medecin is just around the corner with high street and designer boutiques. An array of restaurants, both modern and traditional, are on your doorstep. The more tourist centre of the Old Town, the beach and promenade are just a 15 minutes walk away. Nice train station is a couple of minutes by foot with regular train services to Monaco and Cannes and you are right next to the tram line which takes you to many of the main bus stops in minutes although these are still just a short walk away.

Public Transport

Gare SNCF Nice Ville train station is a 5 minute walk. The 99 airport bus drops you off at Gare SNCF station. Your nearest tram stop is ‘Jean Medecin’ outside Nice Etoile shopping mall. Visit for more information. Taxis can pick up/drop off at your request at your rental apartment. Your nearest taxi rank is the Gare SCNF Nice Ville train station.

Free parking in Nice can be difficult to find. There is a pay as you go underground car park at Nice Etoile commercial centre behind Boulevard Dubouchage. Go to for more information.



As per the reviews, we have in the past had occasional disturbances from the eccentric neighbour next door. The nightly price has been reduced to reflect this issues and unfortunately no further compensation can be given for this.

Gabrielle – Amazing Balcony with Breathtaking Views! Apartment

Ken & Rosemarie Smith, UK – Gabrielle
Lovely apartment, Great location!
Posted on: 02/03/2017
“Lovely apartment, Great location.” Lovely week spent at Gabrielle. The apartment is ideally situated to explore Nice and further afield. The local transport is fantastic and very cheap. We used the buses, trams and the train and had some fabulous days out to Menton, Beaulieu, Villefranche, Monaco and the Rothschild house and gardens. We really enjoyed our meals at the apartment thanks to the fabulous balcony. Nice is also fabulous value for money when eating out and we found many lovely, friendly restaurants. The apartment is equipped to a very high standard and we would highly recommend it to our friends and family. Also, the weather was superb for our whole week!

Much more than we anticipated!
Posted on: 02/03/2017
Perfectly located for a city holiday, the apartment was exactly as described on the net, and was just as it looked in the photographs but much much more than we had anticipated. Spacious, very well equipped, spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished and a pleasure to live in, and Oh!!! the balconies with panoramic views of the hills over the city scape, what a bonus. Tim is a gem. He gave us a very warm welcome and immediately made us feel at home. It was so thoughtful to provide the basics, so we could freshen up and relax over coffee, or if we wished a glass of wine, and enjoy unpacking and getting used to the apartment. We have traveled all over the place but as far as value for money is concerned this has got to be the best. Thank you for the most wonderful stay in Nice. WE WILL BE BACK.

Fantastic location, amazing balcony/view, near transit and quiet. We ended up renting a car and drove along the Riviera and got to see many more cities. Thanks for an unforgettable vacation!

Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean!
Posted on: 02/03/2017
We had a wonderful time in our Nice Apartment. Close to the station, shops, magnificent restaurants and beaches and the sun was shining! The apartment is conveniently situated close to transport, the Old Town, beaches and shops. Gabrielle was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and provided all the utensils you could wish for to eat and or cook at home. We chose to sit on the spacious and very comfortable balcony for breakfast or dinner, sometimes both, with a coffee, or glass of ’vin rouge’ take in the great views to the hills and think on what tomorrow could bring. We found we had plenty of space to cook, yarn about tomorrow hit the bed and watch a DVD, or read a book. We strolled the beach front, wandered the Old Town for lunch and found a great little Deli five minutes away that sold fresh fruit and vegetables, really cheap, along with a whole roasted chicken, and roasted veggies for 4 euro! We were truly amazed at the variety of pre cooked food sold in the local

Spectacular Views

Professional and pleasant apartment!

Very charming and centrally placed appartment. The multiple balconys really adds to the charm and everything fully lives up to the pictures. The appartment was very clean and easily accessable in a 10 min. walk from the central station. The appartment is managed by a bureau and communication was very proffessional and pleasent. Large flexibility on check-in/check-out.

Thank you for being so accommodating and hospitable!
Posted on: 30/08/2017

Gabrielle was perfectly situated with everywhere you’d want to go within a few minutes walk. The apartment was neat and well-stocked and the location close enough to the action without being right in the middle of it, so you get some quiet in the evening, which is nice when relaxing on the amazing wraparound terrace.. Communication was top-notch and we had everything we needed. Thank you so much and can’t wait to be back!

Views to die for!
Posted on: 26/09/2017

The place is wonderful! Really close to a few markets and convenient to old town- it’s about a 15 min walk but not many twists or turns! The view is to die for! Even better than the pictures describe! The room is a wonderful value and we would stay here a million times over! The host had amazing recommendations for restaurants and day tours. Perfect visit!

We had the best time while staying at this apartment.

The apartment was very good - if not exceeded! The balcony is a real highlight. We used it extensively every day. The room is comfortable-modern and very bright. We were very pleased about the welcome gift.

Location and views

Delightful apartment in an excellent location. Elena was very welcoming & informative

The photos don’t quite do justice do the stunning viewgreat stay in Nice
Posted on: 19/07/2018

I was met at the apartment by the bubbly Elena who is a magnificent hostess. She had a bottle of cold Rosè awaiting and many many tips on things to do and see in and around Nice of which I took full advantage. Wonderful restaurants and the trip out to Villefranche Sur Mer one of my highlights as well as a couple of days at Le Voilier Plage Beach Club. Location is very accessible to beach, main and old town all within a 15 minute walk. The place itself has a comfy bed and adequate amenities and would suit 1 or 2 travellers. Thanks Laura and Elena for a great stay in Nice!

It’s so charming– I didn’t want to leave
Posted on: 21/08/2018

I absolutely adored this apartment. It looks exactly like the pictures but the view only gets better at sunsets!! The location is perfect. 15 min walk to the beaches, 2 min walk to the trams. The host was so helpful, arrived right on time, and gave me so many tips of what to do in the area. She also taught me how to use the various appliances and was available for contact throughout the stay if anything came up.

Amazing Location

“Flat is exactly as advertised. We thought the pictures looked good but in person the flat was even better. Host is warm and friendly and very helpful. Corner store has everything you need and only a 10 min walk from bars and main shops.”

Extremely Pleasant
Posted on: 01/10/2018

Thanks for the use of your lovely apartment Gabrielle. It is an amazing place with the bonus of two lovely balconies which we used each day for breakfast and dinner as well as a people watching space with a glass of what France makes best. Elena is a lovely welcoming host and was very quick to met us. She showed us all the facilities and explained the appliances as well as giving us many suggestions on what we could do and where we could eat in Nice. She made the check in so very easy and was a pleasure to deal with. The apartment was well appointed will everything you could want to make the stay an memorable experience. A very nice touch was the lovely welcome pack.
Many thanks and I hope we get the chance to book StayYNA again.

Absolutely wonderful!
Posted on: 04/10/2018

“We absolutely loved this space. It had a beautiful wraparound terrace that was perfect for having a glass of wine and watching the sunset. Jenny and Elena were very responsive and had great recommendations for things to do and dining. Close proximity to train station, restaurants, and beaches. Would highly recommend!”

Too perfect for words
Posted on: 08/10/2018

“The advert doesn’t do it justice. I was hoping that the apartment was close to as advertised. It was so much better! The view was better than shown, the location could not be better – three great restaurants within a few minute walk. Welcome was far above what I expected. The place was perfect for the six nights we stayed. If I could give one thing for possible visitors- if you are a bigger person be warned the shower is tiny. Plenty of hot water but very small. Not a problem for us, thankfully, but could be. Otherwise, we will be back as often as we can.”

We loved your apartment and the amazing view
Posted on: 22/10/2018

“So so charming! The apartement is very small but very cosy. A wonderful balcony with a fantastic view. A quiet neighbourhood pretty close to everything. Our flight was delayed more than One hour, but we got a warm welcome at the apartement anyway. And Jenny was kind and told us how to get about in Nice etc. We can really recomend this place, as we recomend Nice. What a great City!”

Great stay

Nice Apartment
Posted on: 07/05/2019
Nice apartment that is perfect and has a beautiful view of the city. It is central yet peaceful and there is a small elevator that was appreciated after long walks in the area. We were received as agreed and there was even a nice welcome pack of wine, coffee, snacks. Elena gave us valuable tips for tours, dining and general transportation. All in all, a super experience and we had 5 lovely days in Nice.

Posted on: 07/05/2019

Fantastic place and a fantastic value! 10/10 would stay here again. The balcony is so lovely, the location is ideal, and the check-in was above and beyond my expectations. Detailed information about how to use the place, detailed information about where to go and how to get there, and a sweet welcome-bag! It was beyond expectation and I was very pleased with the stay. Despite the horrible weather we got, the stay was perfect!

Perfect location
Posted on: 31/07/2019

“This apartment is the perfect location for exploring the French Riviera! A quick 2 minute walk to the main train station in Nice allows you all the convenience and flexibility to check out the entire region. Old town and the port are also within walking distance. The apartment has stunning views with a wrap around terrace. It is adorably decorated and very clean. Elena, our host, was beyond responsive and gave us great recommendations for restaurants, beaches and day trips in the area. She also left us snacks and a bottle of Rose to enjoy. She even arranged for us to keep our bags there after check out, which we ended up not needing to do. We had a fantastic stay and would recommend this to all those who are interested in staying in Nice.”

“This apartment is amazing! My wife and I spent two weeks here on our honeymoon and we loved the place. It was exactly as shown in the photos. The wrap around balcony and views were amazing. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. There is a washing machine as well, which is nice when you’re away for more than a week. The shower size and water pressure were just fine. Check in was a breeze, our local hosts – Elena and Jenny, let us check in a few hours early and Jenny had lots of tips. She spent a while with us pinning various locations and restaurants on our google maps. Overall we loved the place and would return in a heartbeat!”

Magnificent comfortable apartment
