Beautiful bourgeois Niçois building directly on Place Grimaldi. Right in between the luxurious Carre D’Or neighborhood and the popular Massena pietone. This luxury abode could not be better situated!
A 3-minute walk takes you beach front. Peruse your favourite glossy magazine fashions by window-shopping past Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel, Longchamp and more. Or, hop down to your favourite small French boutique and grab unique, one-of-a-kind fashion. Restaurants of all types, bars, clubs, shops, and street performers are buzzing around every corner.
Place Massena, with the Old Town and the Antiques Port area just beyond, is about a 5-to-10 minute leisurely stroll. Find the tramway on Place Massena and let it whizz you past all the high street shopping stores on the main avenue of Jean Medecine. Continue up another two stops and you will find yourself at the local’s favourite farmer’s market on Place Liberation.
The central SNCF train station is a stop off the tramway--about 3 minutes away--where Cannes, Antibes, Monaco, and Italy are under a 30-minute ride via the train.
This beautiful bourgeois Niçois building is wonderfully maintained and adorned throughout with original marble and wrought iron features. Wrapping staircases for the athletic, or a cute typical French lift will take you up to your 4th floor holiday rental apartment.
Please note that the elevator works on half floors, so minor steps to the first half floor need to be taken up to catch the elevator. As well, once the top floors 4/5 are reached a half floor descent to the floor will be necessary.
A spacious double sized living and dining area opens up to views over Nice and the hills to the East. High ceilings with inlaid spotlights, large French windows, an original marble fireplace (electric), and dark wood floors create a space oozing with French modern charm.
A dining table and two comfy sofas create the perfect relaxing and entertaining space needed for a group of 6 in this Nice apartment. An extra-large flat screen TV with French cable (and English News channels), high speed WiFi, and Blu-ray player is mounted on the wall.
There is central AC and heating throughout the holiday rental apartment and an adorable modern electric fireplace, which has been inserted in the original French fireplace mounting. The fireplace can be enjoyed with or without heat, allowing you to enjoy it even in August, if you chose to!
A large modern kitchen sits separately from the dining and living area. It enjoys all the modern conveniences a spoiled chef could want!
Classic dark grey and white with stainless steel fittings you will find a ceramic stove top, oven, extra large dishwasher, and an extra large side-by-side (freezer/fridge) American-style refrigerator, complete with filtered water and ice cube dispenser in the door.
Your holiday accomodation in Nice also boasts a little breakfast bar, TV, and more than enough storage space for all the French meals you have planned….
And in case you spill some red wine, there’s a handy clothes washing machine hidden in the cupboards!
There are 3 bedrooms in this Nice vacation rental.
The Master bedroom is graced with a lovely antique French chandelier and an Easterly view over the hills of Nice. There is a British Super King bed of 190cm, a TV with DVD player, 2 bedside tables with lamps for reading, a closet, and a chest of drawers.
The 2nd bedroom has a lovely modern shaded chandelier and overlooks the North side of Nice. It has a British King bed of 160cm, 2 bedside tables with lamps for reading, a closet, and a chest of drawers.
The 3rd bedroom has 2 singles of 90cm, that may be pushed together to create a large double of 180cm. Views over the hills and an extra large closet make this a wonderful room.
All rooms in this Nice holiday rental apartment have central AC and heating, curtains and blinds for those who want to sleep in! And all rooms are extraordinarily spacious.

The photographs don't truly do this apartment justice - the open plan living space and 3 full-length windows make is very spacious and bright. There is no balcony but the floor to ceiling windows compensate. It's on the 4th floor (there is a small lift) and overlooks a pretty tree-lined square with mountain views in the background. It must have been recently renovated/refurbished as the kitchen and bathroom seemed brand new. They look great and are very well equipped. The location is excellent too - it is about 2 minutes walk from the promenade and just round the corner from grocery shops and a bakery, not to mention many restaurants (although being in the city centre many of those are over-priced; better value to be had in the Old Town). The booking also included free transport from the airport. As soon as we exited the airport we were collected just a few metres from the door and dropped right to the front door of the apartment. Here we were met by the agent, a lovely man called Ivan, who showed us up to the apartment and gave us a quick tour. He gave us some background information, a map and bus information for Nice, and was very happy to answer any questions (he has excellent English). On on our departure he turned up at the appointed time to return our deposit. The taxi we had asked him to arrange (this is not complimentary by the way but he tells you in advance how much it is) was waiting downstairs to bring us to the airport. I was very impressed with the efficiency of this door to door service; no dragging bags/cases to the bus stop (although it is very close by on the prom if you want to catch a 98 to the airport). Overall, I could not fault this fabulous apartment or the service provided by Sunlight Properties. The only minor thing I can think of is that another set of keys would have been useful as there were 5 of us sharing 2 sets of keys.

“Simply perfect !” This apartment is simply gorgeous , we were so please with the apartment chic decoration, big space, modern kitchen, and all the amenities you can think of, including wifi and free phone line. It is also located in a very good area in Nice, close to everything, bus stop, train and the beach. We were able to travel to other cities without the need of renting a car. And just around the corner there was so much to do and see. We were able to cook at home and save money but if we felt like dinning out there were hundreds of restaurants around the neighborhood to choose from, Italian, French, Indian cuisine and sushi! Two Supermarket around the corner and great shopping areas, I mean everything! And the service from the moment we reserved till we met our host, was a great experience , everyone in the team has been so courteous and helpful in every way. My husband and my teenagers loved the whole experience. We are already planning to comeback next year.

Great apartment in Central Nice” A stunning, well equipped modern apartment in an excellent location - very close to the beach and a short walk to the Old Town as well as from Nice Ville train station which makes it easy to explore the region. Very well managed by Sunlight Properties, in particular by Ivan who was very helpful when one of the party had an accident during the holiday. Would highly recommend.

We recently stayed in the Grimaldi apartment during a rugby trip to Nice. Our break got off to a great start with the complimentary taxi from the airport. The apartment was very clean, spacious and superbly furnished. The kitchen had everything you would need and the super size shower cubicle was a joy to use. The apartment was in an excellent location, close to supermarkets, boulangeries, wine shops, the promenade etc... I honestly could not fault the apartment at all and would highly recommend it.

We rented this property through Sunlight properties a company I had not used before but will do again . Catalina and Ivan were very helpful and made the whole process very easy . The property itself is really lovely , well furnished ,beautiful linens and towels ,spotlessly clean . The location is ideal ,just a couple of minutes walk to restaurants ,shops and the beach . 5 mins to the station and about 5 mins to the old town through Massena . There is a choice of supermarkets just round the corner from the property, just about everything on the doorstep . I would highly recommend the property and the managers . Thanks to all for a great time . (UK)

We stayed at the flat for a family holiday and spent eight nights in Nice. The flat is amazing, situated withing short walking distance of the beach, old town and main shopping areas. The apartment is lovely (exactly as in the pictures), with very fast WiFi, aircon, TV, huge bathroom, tastefully decorated. You have restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets just seconds away from the doorstep. We were provided with enough keys for everybody in the group. All the hassle involved with organising any trip was reduced to the bare minimum thanks to Catalina from Sunlight Properties and Ivan, our host. Ivan was incredibly helpful both before and during our stay in Nice. We were warmly welcomed by him and he kindly organised our transfer back to the airport, drew us a map of the surrounding area, and suggested places to visit and dine. During our stay he was responsive to all our questions via email and phone. We loved our stay in Nice and would not hesitate to book the same flat again! We had an incredible time and would recommend Ivan and Sunlight Properties to anyone wishing to enjoy stress-free holiday in the heart of Nice. Thank you, Ivan!

I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful stay at the Grimaldi apartment. We had a great time discovering Nice and also went to Monaco on the train and had a lovely day. The apartment was amazing with everything we needed and I hope we left everything tidy and the keys in the correct place. The taxi arrived bang on time and the transfer was perfect. Many thanks once again for all your help and advice.

We absolutely loved the apartment. It was beautifully decorated, pristinely clean and was centrally located close to the beach, cafes and the old town. The included taxi transfer from the airport was a bonus. We found Sunlight Properties great to deal with. Communication was excellent throughout the booking and payment process, and Ivan was extremely helpful and friendly at check in. We couldn't have been happier with our stay.

Que du bonheur! ? ? ? ? ? Quel appartement superbe! Tout y est parfait. Il est spacieux, de bon goût, bien équipé et d'une propreté impeccable. La rue est bruyante, mais les fenêtres sont bien isolées et la climatisation centrale assure la bonne température dans l'appartement. Sa localisation est idéale : à 5 minutes à pied de la Promenade des Anglais, de la Place Masséna, du tramway et à 10 minutes du Vieux-Nice. Il y a deux petits marchés au bas de l'immeuble, une boulangerie et une variété de restaurants dans les rues avoisinantes. Ne vous encombrez pas d'une voiture, Nice se marche très bien et pour vous rendre sur les hauteurs de Nice ou visiter les alentours (Eze, Villefranche, Cap Ferrat, Cannes, Monaco, etc.), le bus ou le train vous y conduiront rapidement et à peu de frais. Nice est une ville magnifique nichée au creux d'un paysage grandiose entre mer et montagne. Nous avons été charmés par ses couleurs, sa lumière, sa beauté et l'énergie vivifiante ou paisible de la Méditerranée, selon son humeur. Nous avons marché, admiré, dégusté et marché encore, sans nous lasser. En terminant, nous souhaitons souligner l'excellent service offert par Sunlight Properties tout au long du processus, de la réservation à l'accueil à l'appartement jusqu'au départ en taxi pour l'aéroport. Toutes les personnes avec lesquelles nous avons été en contact ont été très cordiales, professionnelles et serviables. Un merci spécial à Ivan, à Nice, pour sa gentillesse et son efficacité. Nous recommandons sans réserve cet appartement et vous souhaitons de vous y sentir aussi bien que nous. (June 2016)

Just returned from a 3 night stay in Nice with 5 girlfriends. Wow! What a place. The apartment is situated in a beautiful building 5 minutes walk to the beach. The photographs don't do it justice - it was much bigger than we expected. Three large bedrooms, modern bathroom (though no loo), fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washer/dryer etc, cloakroom and large spacious living area with floor to ceiling windows. The air conditioning was a plus. The agent, Ivan, was lovely and on call when we had any questions and the taxi service to and from the airport (booked by Ivan) was great. Place Messena and Nice Old Town were also a short walk away. The train station (which we used each day) an easy 15-20 minute stroll. There are two supermarkets on the street below and several cafes/bars/restaurants all around. Overall, a great apartment in a brilliant location in a beautiful city. Will definitely book here again.

I booked this Nice 3 bedroom apartment through Sunlight Properties. The apartment is beautifully appointed with excellent quality appliances. The kitchen has a huge American fridge/freezer with filtered water, a Nespresso coffee maker, and microwave,dishwasher and cooker. Loads of cooking stuff and utensil's (including free food and a great bottle of wine) The location is amazing-100 metres from the beach, 5 minutes walk from the main shopping street and 10 minutes from the old town of Nice. The carpark is 30 seconds from the apartment and very secure, but you do do need to pay. I got a weekly season for 110 euros which considering the convience and security was good value. We were 2 adults and 3 children. Don't miss the bakery below the apartment - we had fresh cakes every day for breakfast and coffee time!

The apartment was comfortable and bright with three french windows in the living room with a great view, and the unbeatable location with restaurants and cafe nearby, walking distance to the train station which took us to Nice. Hanna gave us a warm welcome and tips to good restaurant in town. Overall it was a great stay and I will definitely recommend it to anyone! Thank you Hanna.

Catherine and her team at Sunlight Properties made the booking process very easy and Elena was very welcoming in showing us around the apartment on arrival. Grimaldi is within a 2 minute walk of the Promenade (sea front) and no more than 5 minutes walk from the centre of the old town. It's nicely finished and very well equipped. I would highly recommend this apartment, it would be hard to find a better place to stay in Nice for this value.

I would totally recommend Sunlight Properties to anyone considering renting an apartment in Nice, France. Communication with Catherine and Hanna was timely, courteous, attentive and simply excellent. They made sure we had everything we needed and also offered extra services such as a bottle of champagne and a delicious cheese and fruit platter. I recommend them without hesitation. Helen

We have enjoyed our stay at this apartment rented out by Sunlight Properties. It is a modern, spacious, light and cozy apartment with all amenities you may need. It is very close to many points of interest in the city center, five minutes from the beach. Everything is within walking distance. Communication with Catherine and Hanna was easy and enjoyable. They responded in a timely manner and accommodated our every request. I totally recommend this agency and the apartment.

Beautiful, clean, spacious apartment in an excellent location. Lovely, large and bright lounge/dining room and separate well equipped kitchen. Three large bedrooms with comfortable beds and good linen. Catherine is delightful and welcomed us to the apartment and gave us all the information we needed. She also left us a contact number just in case, which was reassuring. The apartment had a few bits and pieces (salt, pepper, oil) etc... that you need to get started in the kitchen and bathroom and even better complimentary local wine to sample. We had a fabulous New year celebration and thank you to Sunlight Properties for the beautiful apartment.

Booked Place Grimaldi in Nice for 1 week and could not have been more pleased. The apartment more than accommodated our needs. Hanna was our agent from Sunlight Properties and she was most friendly and gracious. The apartment was clean, the beds were comfortable and the shower was amazing. The booking process was easy and the Sunlight representatives were most responsive. Would highly recommend this company.
