About Penny

We are a family of doctors and medical professionals, except me, I am a designer and businesswoman! We live in the UK and simply love the South of France

Penny purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Penny chose Nice

Visited with family on a birthday and fell in love with the region.What is not to like? Blue sea, all year sun, stunning coastal scenary and charming perched villages! A dream for art and culture lovers, glamour, gastronomy you have it all here.

Lo and behold on my following birthday, got this flat as a gift from my hubby, so it is very special indeed for the family to enjoy and share with the most wonderful guests we have had from Peru to Sydney and China to name just a few far flung destinations!

What makes this apartment unique

In a French chic area, yet so central. Just 10 minutes walk to the beach and lovely markets.You can truly sample life on the French Riviera and go to the bakeries and restaurants frequented by locals.

Just walk everywhere and lose yourself in this beautiful as well as vibrant city. Enjoy!!

Trains and buses conveniently located only minutes from our apartment, for visiting numerous perched villages, and towns nearby including into Italy for lovely days out.

Nice made easy

We stayed at this apartment in September this year and found it to be as advertised meeting all our requirements with a fantastic Art Deco lift. The apartment was ideally placed for travelling around the area to Antibes and Menton for example by train as the station was a short walk away. The buses were good as well for getting to places like Vence and other areas of Nice. Walking about from the apartment was great as the old town and the beach were all readily available. There were some great food markets close by and a brilliant bakers just downstairs,all in all a very good place to stay and an ideal location.

The owner and her agent were both very helpful and punctual with all responses, so enabling us to have a stress free holiday, thank you. We would stay again if we returned to Nice and recommend to friends and family.

Very nice Nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were in Nice for 4 nights as our last stop in France. Penny's apartment was ideal for our needs. Well laid out. Bedrooms are on back so they are quiet for sleeping.

Convenient to stores and restaurants. Also, convenient to train station (about 10 minute walk.) We took train over to Monte Carlo for a day trip and then, at the end of our stay, took train from Nice up to Paris. We were able to walk to train station with our luggage without needing to hail a cab.

We would highly recommend this apartment.

Nice Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at Penny's apartment. Penny was very responsive and easy to work with. Definitely appreciated having brochures/maps in the apartment, both regarding things to do in the area and instructions on how to use the appliances. As others have mentioned it is about a 15 minute walk to the beach and less than 10 minutes to the train and tram. We felt very safe in the area and the apartment is very centrally located. Once we figured out how the tram worked we used it a lot to travel to Old Nice; we also used the train daily to explore the beautiful Riviera towns. The apartment was a nice size (especially compared to the Paris apartment we stayed at) and definitely appreciated the handsink in the toilet room; shower room was nice size too and the clothes machine worked great . Although we did not cook, the kitchen was well stocked and equipped with up-to-date appliances. Overall we had a very pleasant stay, my only complaint, which definitely is no fault of Penny's and of course is subjective, is that the traffic noise did make it hard to enjoy the front balcony or leave the front window open. Bedrooms, which are located in the rear, were very quiet and comfortable. It definitely was nice to return to the apartment after a long day of sightseeing and have a relaxing place to stay. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely Property close to everything

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your apartment.

A 20 minute stroll down to the old town and 5 minutes from the railway station.

The bakery underneath, supermarket across the road and restaurant on the corner were extremely handy.

Very traditional apartment that sleeps 4 comfortably.

Thanks to Sam for meeting us promptly.

Thanks again Penny

Car: not necessary

The location for this apartment is superb and central. It is only 8 to10 minutes walk from the beach, the famous Promanade des Anglais.The bus (No 23 from Terminal 1, costs only 1Euro ) to and from the airport stops within 50 meters of the apartment. The direct airport bus (No99) which wizzes you to the airport in 15 minutes also stops minures away.All the local amenities including a colourful indoor market, brasseries, boulangeries and patisseries are on the doorstep. Old Nice is also a pleasant walk through pedestrianised and interesting roads. The Gare SNCF train station is 7 minutes walk making those day trips to Cannes and Monaco to mention just a few attractions so easy! No need for car hire or taxis as superb and convenient public transport links! As you are in a chic french area, also close to the beach, you have the best of both worlds. Not directly on the busy and noisy promenade, but central enough to explore all of Nice on foot.

Other Activities: french cookery classes
