Apartment - Private room · Rue de la Buffa, Nice, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur 06000, France

The Space

I rent a bedroom in my apartment. I am also living here.

This is a double bedroom looking out onto planted terrace. This calm (2 bedroomed) apartment is at the end of a small lane which is 3 minutes from the sea behind the Palais de la Mediterranee in the centre of Nice. The windows are south, east and west facing. The terrace is large with two tables for outdoor eating / activities. There is wifi access.
As I have studied the history of European painting, if any guest wishes to be accompanied around any of the many museums and places of historical interest in Nice and/or the surroundings, it would be my pleasure. I enjoy entertaining so there is a good chance of meeting a few locals. I am an english / art teacher if anyone should need any lessons, also in basic french. I will be happy to be your host and am willing to give you any advice/information you should require.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Location, location, location! Fiona's apartment is ideally situated in Nice to enable visitors to enjoy the many attractions Nice has to offer. Fiona's tips and recommendations combined with her artistically influenced apartment and gorgeous terrace make staying at her apartment an ideal base to explore the wonderful city of Nice. The bedroom is cosy, the bed large - in fact very large and the apartment warm. Fiona kindly allowed me to prepare some meals in her home to reduce the need to out every evening - although the choices for dining out are extensive. Thank you Fiona for a lovely stay in Nice.

  • Fiona is a great host. Her place is nice and the location of her apartment is perfect. You will get your peace and quiet yet you are not far from the promenade and the shops.
    If you like art, then you would enjoy Fiona's art house. Her art work gave me a lot of inspirations.

  • Fiona's apartment is charming and perfectly located, only a block away from start to the pedestrian shopping zone and the famous Nice promenade. The guest room is small, comfortable and very cosy with a nice atmosphare for relaxing including a large bed. Fiona is a good host and offers you breakfast and good tips about places to visit. I liked very much to staying in her artistic apartment and would very much recommend to anybody.

  • The stay at Fiona's place was certainly an unforgettable experience for me.

    She is not only a host but a friend during and after the stay. I could really trust her throughout my stay.

    The location is great like many have commented and she gave clear instruction to get to her place. This was very important for me as a first timer to Nice all alone by myself.

    From the apartment's decoration I could tell she manifested her art talent totally.

    She is very caring and attentive to my needs. The restaurants she recommended were absolutely good and much better than those I visited by myself. Upon my arrival I briefly told her that I would like to purchase foie gras and bring home. Though she did not know which store sells good foie gras but she found it out from her friend and brought me there personally one night before I departed Nice. I was so touched that she remember this for me!

    She also recommended me to get to Monaco and 2 villages near to Nice by bus, which cost only €1.50 per trip. This was so helpful!!

    On my last day in Nice, I had to catch an early flight and she made the effort to get up early and bid farewell.

    There were many good things staying in Fiona's place and I shall leave it to you to experience it personally.

    Lastly, I would definitely recommend Fiona's place to everyone.

  • This was my second stay with Fiona and she was once again a great host - welcoming and helpful with a great knowledge of the city and the surrounding area.

  • Staying with Fiona and at hers place was highly pleasant, colourful and warm experience. I deeply appreciate the kindness and friendliness she generously communicated every day of my stay, which literally made me feel (like) at home. Her cosy apartment is centrally located, quiet, sunny, with lot of love for details and individual artistic touch very tastefully decorated. I warmly recommend staying with her at her wonderful home to my friends. personally i am looking forward to come back soon ; )

  • This place is well located. Fiona the host is a very artistic creative woman and this is manifested by her house. She makes you feel right at home. She gave me tips of local dining and site seeing tips. I am grateful to have experienced my short stay in Nice at her place.

  • This place is very well located, the place is very nice, the room is very cosy and Fiona is amazing person.
    I will recommend this place to my friend and of course my next visit to Nice I will stay at Fiona’s home.

    Response from Fiona:

    Thanks Lilia. See you again some day....

  • Fiona's place was perfect for our stay in Nice. It's a short walk from the train station and even better, a short walk to the beach. Her place and the room is very charming. I would recommend this place to anybody looking for a place to stay in Nice. The terrace was an absolute delight and we enjoyed our breakfast out there each morning which Fiona so graciously provided. She also gave us some excellent recommendations in the area which we enjoyed. My only complaint was that we weren't staying long enough to see the exhibit that she was preparing.

    Thanks lots. Have a lovely future together.
