Le Douzy (a French play on words for the number 12 “douze” address and the unique style of the apartment) is a two bedroom, one bathroom, first floor gem in the heart of old Nice.
Built in the 1700's, Le Douzy has all the charms of an old Nicois apartment including its beautiful exposed stone wall, but we thought a large bathroom, ceiling fans, and other modern conveniences would also be appreciated by our guests! The apartment was refurbished in 2013.
Close to shops, restaurants, historic churches, galleries, bars, and of course colours and history beyond belief, Le Douzy is special because it's located in the heart of it all without the inconveniences of a typical tourist destination. You'll live amongst the natives, able to do your market shopping at the cours Saleya and take a morning dip in the Mediterranean, while also being able to visit the small food shop around the corner for those forgotten items or buy a fougasse for lunch from our friends at the local boulangerie. All are literally between 30 seconds and 5 minutes away from your doorstep. The building is secure and protected by a main door .
Not next to the t-shirt or tacky tourist shops, but some of the better restaurants in town. Le Tapenade, for example, is known for its Sardines and other Nicoise delicacies and is just down the path from the apartment.
It's just a quick walk to the easy to navigate Tram network which will take you in all directions, including the Place Massena, the Palais de Congres, or even the central train station from where you can easily hop on a 20minute train ride to Monaco for the day, or the beautiful villages of Gorbio and Menton.
And because we don't want to forget the modern world completely, Le Douzy is also heaven for Geeks (or at least adapted for those of you who still need to work while on holiday)!

- Two televisions (living room and bedroom) with a wide variety of TV channels and USB connections on both (bring your own videos)

- Optional local mobile SIM card for only 20 € extra (you will be given your local number before departure so that your family and friends can call you anytime) and this includes a 1 GB data plan.

I had the pleasure of staying in Le Douzy for 5 nights! What a wonderful place it was too! The ambience of the apartment is fabulous and feels like home the minute you walk in the door! With high ceilings, a unique stone feature wall, large windows that open to let the sun filter in and beds that offer a great nights sleep, you simply can't help but enjoy your stay! The location couldn't be better either, it's right in the heart of the Old Town with only a 2min walk to the beach, the markets and some great restaurants. The hosts Eric and Michael were a delight to deal with and went out of their way to ensure Le Douzy had only the best amenities in the apartment. Nespresso machine was an added bonus too!
Prepare yourself for the canon blast each day at 12noon.. it's loud! I will be returning to this little gem in Nice for sure!
