Heart of historical Nice area called Musiciens, short walking distance to the Promenade des Anglais, the bright blue sea and the beaches ...
It is a very convenient location: close to the train station (Gare SNCF) for accessibility. From the airport, bus line n° 99 comes directly from the airport to the train station in about 15 mins and for 6 euros each person.
Ideal location to visit Cote d'Azur : trains every 15/20 mins to Monaco, Cannes, Menton, Ventimiglia (Italy) ...
The area is an historical "quartier Niçois", with the main streets named after musicians or composers.
The architecture is very Nice, with many old building all around. In particular we have two nice old buildings just in from of our terrace (see the pictures). There are plenty of shops (fruits and veggies, meat, fish, .... supermarkets) and many restaurants very close. The main avenue (Jean Medecin) and all the shops are at 5 minutes walk. The animated area of VIEUX NICE / cours Saleya is about 15 mins walk (or 3 stops by tram).
The SEA and BEACH is only 7-8 minutes walk from the building, all the street down to Palais de la Mediterranée and Negresco Hotels.
The building is a 1970 place called PALAIS HENRI IV, nice and well kept. There is a large an confortable lift.
We are on 2nd floor with elevator.
Our flat is about 62 m² - 650 sq feet - plus a terrace and a balcony. It includes a large living room with lovely terrace with nice view, a confortable bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a bath and a separate toilet. Both bedroom and kitchen open on another balcony.
The terrace is facing east (sun in the morning for your croissant and petit dejeuner) and the balcony is facing west.
All is very modern and confortable ... In fact we just finished furnishing it in june 2012 and this is our pied à terre in Nice (so we wanted to have this full confort for us too).
Very good and unlimited internet access (WIFI) included. Free phone usage for all international calls on fixe/land lines only (most countries in Europe and US/Canada).
>150 TV channels through internet connection on our TV too!
Please have a look at the pictures for details. And don't hesitate to contact us for all questions. We live in Paris but we have someone locally that will meet up on arrival (one of our friends or neighbours).
If you are coming by car or plan tp rent one: We have also the possibility to organise for a parking place for you in the building itself (lift from parking to flat, -2 floor tp 2nd floor). This will be for an additional fee of 15€ per day
Some more detailed info will be sent later by mail

Marco was an excellent host. His apartment was great just as described in the listing. Very convenient (email hidden)ose to train station and the main walking street, many restaurants and shopping and of course the beach!
Marco was very helpful in indicating places to eat and go to beach etc.
Check in and Check out was very easy going and he provides a data package with all info on the apartment and neighborhood..this is very helpful.
The flat and location were exactly as described. My wife and I had a 10 month old baby with us so we mainly ate in- the kitchen was extremely well stocked, there were numerous shops and a couple of supermarkets nearby (but we didn't manage to find fresh fish). Although the balcony overlooked a small street we found the flat very peaceful. The (stony) beach was about a 10 min walk away. We loved Nice and enjoyed a v interesting day out by train to Monte Carlo. Thanks to Marco who was easily available if needed
We truly enjoined our stay at Marco's apartment - spacious and clean and with two great balconies (one perfect for breakfast and the other one perfect for an apertif). It is also perfectly situated - just around the corner from the train station so that you can use Nice as your hub for discovering the rest of the French Riveria (we applied an every second day system, varying between staying in Nice and visiting other places), while still only a short walking distance from both the beach clubs and to the Old Town/restaurants. Marco was also the perfect host - easy (and quick) to be in contact with and providing great recommendations for beach clubs and restaurants.
First of all, Marco was a great host, he made the process very easy and he was very informative and professional. There were no problems at all in the apartment. The place was extremely clean and organized and a great value for your money. The location is great, not too far from all the attractions that this city has to offer. Highly recommended!!!
Marco was amazing! He was super responsive and made arranging, arriving, and staying very easy. The flat has everything you could need and the location is more than perfect. I have stayed in Nice a few times and I usually take a flat in the "Old Nice" but is the noise there is non stop! Marco's flat was very quite for sleeping but in walking distance to EVERYTHING!! He provided us with excellent information on buses, local spots, and day trips from Nice. I would have to say it was a fabulous place and he was a perfect host. Thank you Marco. We will definitely be back to your place in Nice...,,and hopefully your other flat in Pari too!! I would recommend his flat to all my friends and family. That is how great my experience was.
