Interaction with Guests

The apartment is all yours.

Jane and Nigel will meet you when you arrive, to give you the keys and show you around. They live 2 minutes walk away, so can be on-hand if you have any questions or issues.

The Neighborhood

It is very close to everything, but in a location that is away from the noise.

Nice is a beautiful place, French with an injection of Italian, which shows in the architecture and food. The food in Nice is exceptional and not overly-priced.

The French people are very friendly and helpful.

The beach is a nice place to sit and relax, or go for a swim in the Mediterranean sea.

There are always things going on in and around Nice. You will never get bored here.

Getting Around

Located in central Nice, just 10 minutes walk to the train station, 5 minutes walk to the beach, 5 minutes walk to the modern city centre, 5 minutes walk to the tram system, 10 minutes walk to the old city centre and 2 minutes walk to the nearest patisserie!

Nice is very easy to get to. Type 'Wikitravel Nice' into G00gle and go to the first result. Unfortunately airbnb does not allow me to post the URL here.

To/from Nice airport - get the 99 bus (this takes you directly to/from the Nice train station - an easy 10 minute walk to/from the apartment).

Nice is easy to walk around, but for long trips you can hop on and off the tram system, which is very cheap.

Transport is very cheap. In October 2011 I paid 3.50 Euros for a return ticket to Monaco and 12 Euros for a return ticket to Cannes.


Car parking in Nice is limited and expensive. Some details I have from the Internet:

There is a public garage just a 2 minute walk away. Airbnb doesn't let me include website addresses on here, so please search for 'interparking-france Grimaldi' in a search engine and you will find details of the car park. It is (as of January 2012) 38 Euros for 2 days, if you pay in advance.

It is a lot cheaper to use the airport car parks and then get a bus to/from the the airport and the apartment. Pricing details for this are:

Terminal 2 Parking at Nice Airport

P5 This car park is directly in front of Terminal 2 with direct access into the departures area. The first 20 minutes are free and charges then rise in stages to 15.50 for 24 hours.

P7 A long term car park within walking distance (depending on the amount of luggage) of Terminal 2 with the advantage of being under cover. The minimum charge is 52 euros for 4 days, and 10 euros per day after that. The height limit is 2m20.

P9 This long term car park is the furthest from either terminal but is accessed by the free shuttle. Not surprisingly it is also the cheapest at 44 euros for 4 days, and 8 euros for each extra day. No height limit.

G2 This secure underground car park is 3 euros for the first hour rising to 25 Euros per day. Height limit 2m10

Other Things to Note


Late check-in is available, at an additional charge:

Before 20:00 = Free
Between 20:00 and 22:30 = 30 Euros (payable to Jane, who you will meet at the apartment)
After 22:30 = Check-in is not available


Check out is by 10:00.

If required, luggage can be left securely at the train station (for a small fee), so you can walk around Nice without taking your bags with you.

To check out, you will just need to leave the keys on the kitchen table (quick and easy!).


A professional cleaning company will clean the apartment, towels and bedding before you arrive.

Please let me know if you would also like cleaning done during your stay as I will arrange this for you.
