The Space

Strategically located, in a small and very calm street at the heart of the old Nice (street name: Rue du Jesus) at the 4 FLOOR WITHOUT ELEVATOR near the place Rossetti (where one can find the best ice cream maker of Nice). Close to all the touristic and cultural activities (without being bothered by the nose coming from the street): The « cours Saleya » and its famous market, The « place Massena » and « Garibaldi » added to that, the most famous « the promenade des Anglais ». This way, one can enjoy going to the beach or have a walk by the sea side during the day or, when the sun burns too much, one can find shelter in the shade of the streets filled with small supermarkets, vintages shops, art galleries, museums and delightful restaurants.
This welcoming flat, has all the conveniences required: kitchen, bathroom with shower, toilets, sink, a convertible sleeper for 2people, plus an extra bed, TV, micro waves, ceramic burners, coffee maker, kettle…
This flat is on the fourth floor of a typical old town building: picturesque stairwell with steep stairs.

Whether you are coming from the airport or the station, the stop is called the same way "Cathedrale Vieille Ville". From that point you just have to go on straight on one of the 2streets in front of you and you will arrive to the place Rossetti. From there finding the "rue du Jesus" is really easy.

All along the year, life in Nice is regulated with cultural activities. On summer one can enjoy music orchestrations and festivals. Winters are dedicated to Christmas market, ice rink on the place Massena, Ferris wheel and candy stands; the apex of this period is with no doubt February where the famous Carnival takes place. There, one will enjoy the parade of floats and the flower battle.
As far as food is concerned, Nice specialities are among the best of France and one will enjoy eating “socca”, stuffed vegetables, “pan bagnat”, dishes with sauce, pies… and lot of French pastries. The best restaurants are located in the Old Town, meaning around the flat!
By renting it, one will be able to visit Nice on foot, without being bothered with public transports crowed. One can visit churches, Castel (with a panoramic view of the town), Flower market of the “cours Saleya” (which goes on with fruits, vegetable, and food), fish market of the St François’s place, museums (Chagal, Matisse, Terra Amata, MAMAC, Massena, archaeological places…). The port is also really close, with its typical fishing boats called “les pointus”.
Once the visit of Nice is finished, going till Cannes or Monaco is really easy with regular buses (only 1€!!), and the stops are really close from the flat. I highly recommend you to visit Villefranche, its bay and citadel, the village of St Jean Cap Ferrat with its numberous little coves (less crowded than in Nice) and its beautiful villas. Then, Antibes with its old town and museum dedicated to Picasso; Grasse with its perfumes; Eze with its eyrie; St Paul de

  • My husband and I stayed here for a week and the location is just fantastic! Old town is the true nice experience and we would recommend it to anyone who likes to be in the centre of everything!! Sylvan was wonderful and helped us with calling a taxi and just being very friendly and caring. The apartment was clean. Loved looking down from the window at the small ally it really felt like stepping back in to old Nice. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and a 2min walk to the beach. The 4 sets of stairs were high to climb but worth the view looking down from the window and great exercise after all the yummy French and Italian food you will be eating. Merci Sylvan and we wish you all the best!

  • We had a very nice stay. The appartment has the perfect location - very close to good restaurants, shopping and beach. Due to a very central location it is a bit noisy friday and saturday evening.
    Sylvian is a great and friendly host.

  • We had an awesome time in Sylvain's really stylish appartment! He was really kind and helpful during pickup and checkout. No problems what so ever. Clean, up to standard, quiet (except for the charmful church bells every now and then). Very close to good restaurants, the beach and many beautiful little places. Thanks Sylvain!

  • Could not have asked for a better location to spend time in Nice! Right in the heart of old town and a perfect spot to really sample Nice's best sites. Everything you would ever need is literally steps away. The flat was clean and everything worked as you would hope. Sylvain was a great host and the opportunity to meet him made the stay all the more welcoming. His recommendations were spot on! A personal touch sure beats an overpriced hotel!

  • Sylvain's place was amazing! Located right in the heart of old town, it was more than enough space for 2 people and the place was spotless. Recently refurbished, it was very comfortable and Sylvain went out of his way to make our stay a very comfortable one.

    Will definitely stay here again if we come back to Nice and I would highly recommend him to anybody looking to visit that beautiful city

  • Sylvain, was a great host. Told us different places to visit, very helpful. The apartment was in a great location close to the Cours Saleya for the market and great restaurants in the evening.

    Thanks Sylvain for making us so welcome.

  • We have just returned from a lovely 5 days staying at Sylvain's flat in the heart of the old town in Nice. The location was perfect for us, so many bars and restaurants in 'stumbling' distance of the flat, as well as easy access to the beach and to the major sites but also the tram service. The flat itself was very comfortable, we had more than enough space for 2 of us and everything was provided for us! There was nothing we could think of that wasn't already there. Sylvain was a great host, able to get in touch when needed and handovers were really smooth. Would happily recommend staying in Sylvain's flat to everyone looking for a great place to stay in Nice!

  • We stayed here a few days ago and it was perfect in the Old Town of Nice. Spacious and clean- just what you need. Great location, near all the great bars and especially fantastic/well rated restaurants! Yes the stairs are a pain (but nothing like a bit of exercise to work off the food and wine!), but Sylvain was so helpful in getting our bags up and down! Thanks again and definitely recommend!
