What makes your Nice vacation apartments so great?
Simple: we only select quality apartments in the best locations in central Nice. You are making a major investment in coming to Nice; and we believe that where your stay is the most important factor. Nice apartments in the best and safest locations are hard to find and that is why our selection is small. But we won't compromise on our standards.
Why would I want to rent an apartment rather than stay in a hotel?
There are 4 main reasons why customers choose an Apartment over a hotel for their holiday in Nice:
- Space: an Apartment offers much more space than a hotel: a typical Apartment offers additional space such as living room, dining room, fully-equipped kitchen, and outdoor areas. You'll have the comfort of a living room and kitchen so you can enjoy time at home with friends and family. For larger groups, our holiday Apartments allow you to share a space, rather than having to be divided amongst several hotel rooms.
- Experience: Unlike hotel rooms, renting an apartment allows you to live a real experience “a la Nicoise”. You will dive into the French culture, environment and lifestyle. You will meet French neighbors, shop at the local grocery stores and bakeries. If you prefer to be lazy you can always chose our local restaurants around our flats.
- Privacy by definition you rent a private Apartment on Nicerent.fr which means that the Apartment will be yours for the time of your stay and you will have complete privacy. For couples, they provide privacy, intimacy, and the ideal setting for a romantic vacation in Nice.
- Price: Private Apartments are often more economical for traveling families and couples than luxury hotels: a private Apartment costs typically the price of two 4-5 star hotel rooms whereas it offers more room. You will also eat and drink “local” in your Apartment and won t have to pay the premium price of a restaurant nested in a luxury hotel. Remember that whatever price you are quoted for a hotel room, add taxes supplement, premium phone charges and of course, the costs of eating out for every snack or meal. You'll see why staying in an apartment is a better option.
Enjoy shopping at the local supermarket and eat at home or enjoy meals out as often as you like.

What will be the weather like?
Nice enjoys an exceptional microclimate that has made its renown across all europe. Open to the sea, the city is protected from the wind by the surrounding hills, to the West by the Esterel Massif and, to the Northwest by the barrier of the Alps. The climate is always mild in winter and never too hot in summer due to the sea breeze. It is not rare to have lunch outdoors on a terrace wearing no more than a T-shirt in February when the rest of France is shivering in the cold.
Do I need a travel insurance?
We strongly advise to purchase your own comprehensive travel insurance that will cover all liabilities incurred by you in Nice. This will cover any accident, injury, accidental damage to property or persons that you may cause. Travel insurance will also assist in lost luggage, any expensive accidental breakages, or if you are a victim of crime or have a medical emergency.
