The city's main seaside promenade, the Promenade des Anglais ("Walkway of the English') owes its name to visitors to the resort. It was built in 1820 by an Englishman, Lewis Way, for afternoon constitutionals. Today this palm tree lined promenade is used by walkers, joggers, cyclist, and roller bladers. The promenade runs the length of Nices ocean front, approximately 7 km.

For decades now, the picturesque Nicean surroundings have attracted not only those in search of relaxation, but also those seeking inspiration.

The complex includes the Residences and a 4 star+ newly restored art deco hotel and casino, Le Palais de la Méditerranée, now one of the "leading hotels of the world". The hotels façade is now a national monument and dominates the Promenade des Anglais.

Le Palais de la Méditerranée originally opened to unprecedented acclaim in 1929, instantly becoming a showcase of luxury and inter-war celebration. Designed by architects Charles and Marcel Dalmas, its prestigious inauguration included an impressive line-up of celebrities and politicians from France and abroad, all invited as guests of American billionaires Franck and Florence Gould, already famed for the creation of Juan les Pins.

From the unveiling of the art deco façade, the early 20th-century visitors marvelled at the sculpting of Satori, the white marbled lobby, the massive staircase, the stained glass windows, the precious woods and the sparkling crystal chandeliers. Hailed as a gaming palace, the casino rooms enjoyed some of the most stunning views over the Mediterranean through enormous picture windows. A 1,000-seat theatre attracted the greatest names in the world of arts and entertainment, among them Maurice Chevaliers, Jules Romain, Edith Piaf and Josephine Baker.

Friends from Scottsdale, USA Sep 2017

My friend and I travelled from the USA via a stay in Paris. We were met by the charming greeter, Pat Fortune, who explained everything we needed to know about buses, trains and lots of information regarding the Chagall & Matisse museums. The grocery shopping info was great- thanks Pat! Everything and MORE was as included in the advertisement - especially the thoughtfulness of the British DVD's!!! I, being a Brit, really enjoyed this 'extra'. The condo is beautifully situated between the Promenade des Anglais and Rue de France. We walked everywhere locally or hopped on a local bus for the price of only of Euros 1.5! My friend went all the way to Monaco for E 1.5!!!
The communication with the owner, Deirdre, was wonderful. Being an Interior Designer I found the condo very nicely furnished.
I could ramble on and on about all kinds of info but here is the real review :-


Reply from Deirdre

Hi Meg,

What can I say, but an enormous THANK YOU for taking the time in reviewing our apartment in Nice, France.

Not sure if you have returned to Scottsdale yet but wish you a good journey.

We are delighted that you were comfortable in our "home away from home" and good to hear the DVD's continue to be anemity. Thank you also for your comments regarding the style of the apartment

I will pass on this review to Pat, who is a gem for us here in Nice.

We look forward to welcoming you to our apartment in Nice, Francð, should you return to this part of the world.

Best regards to you and Cate.


Couple from Lochgelly, United Kingdom Oct 2016

From start to finish, the process of renting this beautiful apartment was superb. The owner could not have been more helpful. The description was accurate. Help with all arrangements was forthcoming.
Before leaving the UK, we were given contact details of the lady who would meet us on arrival and who would explain to us how everything worked. She contacted me quickly, and was extremely helpful, arranging for us to be met at Nice station and brought to the property. My companion is disabled, and even though the train arrived very late, the driver was there when we got there, and gently lifted her into the minibus. She said it felt like a lovely cuddle from an old friend.
At the property, the greeting from Pat Fortune was superb, and this continued throughout our stay. She helped with the luggage, took us through the tranquil secluded garden area and up to the apartment in the commodious lift. Everything in the apartment was easy to access for the wheelchair - but also comfortable, clean, and we felt at home very quickly.
It was well stocked with quality furniture, cooking utensils and crockery, and there were also plenty of cleaning materials, towels, dish towels, and even things like cooking oil, teas, coffee, salt and pepper. There was fresh milk in the fridge, a cheese, biscuits, bread......everything one could wish for a late supper and breakfast.
I hope to be able to return to this beautiful apartment next year - and to be looked after again by Pat. Good Fortune indeed!

Hello Mary,

What can I say ! Many thanks for taking the time to write a review of our apartment in Nice, France.

We are delighted that you and your companion enjoyed your stay in Nice and most especially in our apartment.

It is good to hear that Pat, looked after you both well by arranging your collection from the train station and having the fridge well stocked to start of your holiday in a homely way.

Many thanks for your comments on the facilities in the apartment and of course of the excellent representation by Pat.

We would love to look after you again for a stay in Nice.

Best regards,

Friends from Bergen, Norway Jun 2016

We were a group of 4 friends travelling to the Euros this summer. Had a great time at the apartment, the place was clean and well equipped. Exellent location right by the beach and a 15 min stroll to the old town. The apaprtment building is "boxed" by surrounding buildings, so there is practically no noise from the streets.

Couple from Brentford, United Kingdom May 2016

Lovely flat. Perfect location. Can't wait to go back !

Couple from Garforth, United Kingdom Sep 2015

Excellent apartment, well placed for all amenities, beach, restaurants etc. Very quiet overlooking lovely garden area. pat was extremely knowledgable and helpful too. Only negative is cleaning fee is a little high, but would not deter from returning again.

Reply from Deirdre

Hi Michelle, many thanks for taking the time to write review of our apartment. We are pleased that you found the apartment well placed, in an oasis of calm, and that Pat was a good source of information.

To clarify regarding your comment; "cleaning fee is a little high"; the local handling charge is not a cleaning fee. It is well documented, that this fee is for checking in and out of the apartment by Pat, apartment introduction, as well as provision of bed linen and towels. As you found, Pat is knowledge and helpful, and provides a good service, which is this fee.

Couple from Brentford, United Kingdom Aug 2015

Perfect for a holiday in Nice. Great location, ideal facilities.

Will from Shrewsbury Jun 2017

Full details of the apartment and how to contact the local representative were provided prior to our trip by the owner, Deirdre. After making our way to the apartment, we were met by a charming lady, Pat, who provided two sets of keys and showed us how to access the complex and how to use the lifts to the second floor apartment. Pat also showed us around the apartment and explained all that we needed to know, making sure that we had her contact details should we need to contact her at any time. The apartment was exactly as described and fully equipped with all that we needed. The location was just right, with direct access both to the promenade and to the pedestrian area one block back from the front, and was securely gated at each entrance. The 'old town' is around a 15 minute stroll, and the immediate area is well supplied with food shops, and with restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. The apartment exceeded all our expectations, and we have had no hesitation in recommending it to all our friends.

Andy and Evelyn, London. May 2017

Having spent many breaks in Nice staying in cramped and overpriced hotels we finally found this lovely apartment right on the Promenade des Anglais, and it has brought us back to this magical city year after year. Beautifully appointed, spacious, peaceful yet in the perfect location to enjoy all the wonderful things Nice has to offer, we can't wait for our next trip to visit what we now consider to be our home from home.

Will and Celia Mountford Jun 2015

Another great stay at 203 Le Baccara. Pat met us at the promenade bus stop and was most welcoming and helpful, even coming in to change the linen for week two. The apartment remains fully equip as described and includes more than you need for a relaxing holiday, with new loungers on the balcony together with mats and umbrella for the beach. The secure internal courtyard and gardens are quiet and peaceful, whilst outside, the streets around the complex seem busier than ever with an even wider choice of restaurants within the immediate vicinity, and with dual access, both to the promenade and the beach, and to the pedestrian area on Rue de France, the apartment could not be better situated. Will & Celia.

I had a wonderful three weeks in March, 2012 and loved every minute of it. My son spent a few days with me initially, then husband came for a week. Was on my own for a few days and felt extremely safe and secure. A family friend came for the final week. Did a lot of sightseeingMonaco, Menton, Cap Ferrat, Villefranche, Antibes, Cannes, St. Paul de Vence. Tickets sold out for the Opera but will know for again. The Trattoria was excellent for Pizzas And felt that Francinni didnt change their menu often enough-love the decor. Found the French extremely helpful and had a better connection with them through my efforts with the language. With regards to the apartment I found it excellent value for money. It exceeded my expectations-I felt its main selling point is its location. To have such easy access to the promenade des anglais was wonderful, and with the exit on to Rue de France you had easy access to shops etc. Also found coming and going to airport by bus fantasticeven with 19 kilos of luggage! The description was very accuratehaving read it several times I knew what to expect. Nice to have the range of books there etc-made it feel homely and had no problem working TV. I would definately recommend it and I have every intention of returning!! Brigette was great-very punctual coming and going. She gave us lots of time explaining how everything worked. Found your little green chair handy for reading at the beach and it was lovely to have the heating in the evenings as it turned cooler. Again many thanks and also for your efficiency in dealing with the rental of the apartment. Kind regards, Anne

"I stayed at this appartment with four others(adults), and found It to be of a high standard and amply big enough for all of us. Everything you could ask for was provided, from iron, hairdryer etc. to cd`s, dvd`s and things for the beach. Very handy for the beach, shops, supermarket, pubs, restaraunts and trams. We were made very welcome on arrival and nothing was a problem. I would definitely recomend it to anyone. Bill Walker"

It was reasonably good value at €1,000 p/w but perhaps there could have been a 10/15% discount considering the current economic climate. It was well maintained and met our expectations in terms of facilities, layout, location, and general condition. The main aspect that did not suit us was the absence of a level deck shower, which would suit a wheelchair user. The description was accurate. One aspect that took us a while to figure out was the VOIP setup. This was unplugged, but when I had time to look at it I figured it out. I would recommend it. but there are probably cheaper options in the same vicinity. In our case we could not afford to take chances on accommodation that we hadn’t assessed in advance. We were met on arrival and helped with our luggage and gave instructions, codes, etc. We also received help when we had to make a few phone calls to for information/help on the first day.

Reply from Deirdre

The client was not aware that during the season, due to the economic climate, we did in fact reduce all our rental prices by 10%. The same period in 2009 was €1,100, whilst the client paid €990 this year.

I have reviewed the correspondence with the client regarding the shower and its suitability for a wheelchair user and see the following comment:

“My question relates to whether there is a walk in shower, i.e. level deck – suitable for wheelchair access. If not we will lift Anna into the bath, which is ok from our perspective.”

Our reply was as follows:

“The shower is not walk in, there is a step, so is unsuitable for wheelchair access.”

We understood the lack of a level deck shower was a not a problem for the clients, based on the above comment.

It was unfortunate, that another guest had unplugged the VOIP telephone, which obviously was human error on the part of our Representative in not noticing this fact and plugging back in.

Finally, we always appreciate the time taken by the client, to review our apartment.

Best regards,

We have had vacations in half a dozen or more rented accommodation, normally on a self-catering basis, and after thirty years of two or three foreign visits a year, and four or five in each of the last six years, we have become tolerably adept at sussing out the good properties. This one was abundantly what we sought. Thus, it was quiet, beautifully clean, well furnished, with excellent beds, abundant hot water, splendidly equipped in the kitchen, and fully darkat night. The addition of the requested duvets was most welcome, and air-conditioning room-by-room was a treasure we don't meet often!The location could not have been bettered. We even managed the TV, though the oven foxed us at times! The things we missed may reflect that we were unusual in actually catering for ourselves foil, herbs, a knife-sharpener, a third tea-towel,and, amongst good cleaning materials, a duster! The only damage we inflicted, to our knowledge, was when we tried to make a daubein the big blue casserole and melted the knob on the lid - sorry! A lidded glass or pottery casserole for use in the oven would have been most helpful. But these really are minutiae. Perhaps the absence of a shelf (for toiletries)in the shower room, and for soap etc in the showeritself, but it's a very good shower. The only comment we would make that comes remotely near the status of a complaint concerns the lighting in the sitting room, more especially lighting to read by. But we really did feel we had outstanding value for money and then some. With every good wish and many thanks - John & Norma.

Date of Arrival : Sep 13, 2008Name on Contract : Garry HelfrickReview Rating : 5/5Review Title : 161640 - "Nice in Nice""Property was as advertsed. Excellent location if your on foot,and good access to parking if driving. Be sure to buy a long term parking pass in the adjacent parking garage if driving, or the parking is pricey. The apartment is comfortable and decently appointed,really lacked nothing. The company rep. was there at the appointed times at the beginning and at the end of our stay. There were many good restuarants in the area, we particularily enjoyed the ones on the site of the market in the Old Towm. The info regarding dining that was in the apartment was also helpful and accurate. Overall our experience both with the accomodation and agency were most satifactory."

Some interesting comments from an apartment guest:"Thanks for the updat ed information on the internet.It was a bit of a nuisance having to go out and get logged on etc, but hey, no big deal, but at least you found the root of the problem. We enjoyed our stay all the same and it was a comfortable apartment.By the way, did Bridget inform you that I fixed the en-suite plumbing. There was a leak from the sink waste. Anyway I removed the drawers and stripped down the waste unit, which was blocked and I cleaned out the pipes and the inside panels and reassembled, so all was well. .Next time we come I will bring my tool box Ha..Ha..just joking.We are still looking for a place in the Nice area. We did not have much of a chance to go house hunting, as we had friends join us, but we will be heading back there in a couple of months, so I will give you a call to check if apartment is available if that’s OK.Well that’s about it for now, thanks again and hope everything is OK with you.Ken & Grace from Aberdeen, Scotland"

Hi Deirdre, just a note to say what a fabulous apartment you have. We really enjoyed our week and spent several days on the sporting plage and used your surf board to the max!!!.I was just about to go shopping one day when Andrea said it's a shame you're going to have to carry a load of heavy stuff, what you could do with is a shopping trolley I wonder if there is one here!I thought I hope there isn't I don't want to go out with an old lady trolley (remembering my Granny wheeling hers around).Needless to say your apartment has every accessory imaginable so I gritted my teeth and went down to Spar towing it behind me !!!!Seriously though we had a super timeBest WishesChris Adams and family

We had a marvellous holiday. The apartment was excellent, spotlessly clean, spacious, well equipped and in a great location. Brigette was most helpful throughout our stay. I would consider the apartment very good value for money and would happily return or recommend it to others. Thanks for all your help.
