Million dollar views from this beautiful apartment on the seafront.
- english, Irish
We are a family with 5 children, living in Dublin, Ireland and love spending time in Nice.
Hugh purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Hugh chose Fabron
We fell in love with Nice and just had to have a place of our own to which we could return again and again. The location is perfect, close to the airport so that we don't spend hours travelling to get to our destination. We sometimes walk! Also, it is so convenient to the centre of Nice, we walk, take the tram and more often than not, take the Velo Bleu - the city bikes with stations all around Nice. We even ventured as far as Cagnes sur Mer on a Velo Bleu! Nice is such a wonderful city. To those who have visited, no explanation is necessary; to those who haven't, get booking now! Even after countless visits, we still have so much left to visit and see.
What makes this Apartment unique
The moment we saw what a guest described as 'the million-dollar view', we fell in love with this location. We love sitting on the balcony at all times of the day or night and watching the world go by. We head across the road to swim at all times of the day or evening. A particular pleasure is to swim in the evening and then indulge in a picnic by moonlight watching the fishermen and the planes overhead! The arrival of the Tramway has made the location all the more attractive- it is minutes from the airport and the centre and Nice Harbour. We recently refurbished the apartment to make fully air-conditioned and revamped the American kitchen and added a combi dishwasher/oven.

Lived up to our expectations expectations
We felt it met all the expectations set out in the information supplied. The adjacent new Tram Service added greatly to getting around the city and elsewhere.
Getting early entry was great after a very early start. Thanks to Maria
Delighted you had a great time and all went to plan. The tram is a great addition to the location and makes it so easy to get around. It makes Copa the perfect base for a trip to Nice.
Very functional Flat in a very nice area
Firstly Hugh- the owner- is a real gentleman he is very flexible and helpful
At any of my staying in his flat I got problems with Flights and checking in and out but every time Hugh was there to solve those problems
Now the Flat is spacious and very functional in a building clean and quiet and residents very polite
Plenty of shops and restaurants on your righ or left up to you to choose
The most amazing thing the balcony which put you face to face with the sea and to go to the beach just cross the road
Thank you for your thoughtful review and it was a pleasure hosting your family in Copacabana, again. You describe it well; it is a simple apartment in a great position with fabulous views.
Now that Tram Line 2 is operational (fully from Dec. 2019), it makes access to the airport, the Old Town and Port so simple. It also gives connections to Tram Line 1.
You will be welcome back next year!
The ocean view was amazing. Commuting around was convenient and easy. Would come back again.
We had a wonderful experience and felt very comfortable and at home.
Thank you, Guido. You have captured the essence of Copacabana,
Great base from which to explore the city and wider region with public transport Stops (bus and tram) within 100 meters. The new tram line brings you from the airport in 10 minutes and part of the way into town. Due to connect with the port the entire tram route is due to be completed in late 2019.
The view from the balcony is great with the sea directly across and the nice skyline fully in view. We found it handy to pop into the radisson a few doors up to enjoy the rooftop bar.
Thank you and while it was always a great location for exploring Nice and the beautiful area around, the tram makes the town and airport even more accessible. We often say 'a car is a hindrance' and so unnecessary in Nice, such is the quality and low cost of public transport. You and your party will be welcome back anytime.
Great location, Easy access to all transport. Nice Old Town a definite to see and explore as is all the other places in close proximity. Close to Monaco, Monte Carlo, Cannes, Ezze and St Paul. Hugh ,the owner very friendly and helpful as was his assistant Maria who helped us with booking in. Enjoyed chilling on the veranda with a glass of wine after a long day exploring all the many surroundings. Would definitely recommend this flat to other.
Nic, thank you for your comments and it was a pleasure having your family stay at Copacabana. It really is perfectly located to enjoy all that Nice and the surrounding area has to offer. It has gotten even better with the arrival of the tram and the stop immediately at the back door. This brings you to and from the airport and is due to run as the Port in Autumn 2019, making it even more convenient to get around.
Apartment is situated on The Promenade Des Anglais, close to the Radisson Hotel, a short distance from Nice Cote d'Azur Airport. The Hotel Negresco, the Cours Salaya and the Old Town are within walking distance, as is the Port of Nice. Enjoy a walk into town along the Promenade and stop for refreshment in one of the many restaurants on the Promenade or on the beach. There is so much to do in Nice and a car is not just unnecessary, it is a nuisance. Copacabana is well served by bus, with services to many parts of the city including the Port, Railway station and Bus station. If you don't fancy walking home after an evening out, the night bus (Noctambus) runs until quite late, at regular intervals. A train or bus ride will bring you to Cannes, or Monaco for the Casino; The Palace or to take a trip in a Ferrari around the Monaco Grand Prix Circuit. Eze, Beaulieu, Menton are very short bus journeys. Or you might wish to visit the markets in Ventimglia in Italy. Buses from just outside the apartment will bring you to Cannes, Vence, Antibes. Grasse etc.
There are many ski resorts within easy reach of Nice and a car is not necessary! Bus and train services operate to bring you to the ski slopes.
There are many golf courses in the area.
