My aim as an owner is to provide you with a wonderful, well equipped holiday home, where comfort and an eye for detail will make your stay a memorable one.

My husband has known Nice for over 26 years and decided some 13 years ago to buy a holiday home in the city for our large family. We looked for a long time before choosing Palais Yolande.

Primarily, we felt that the area and Palais Yolande provided us with the French experience we wanted in what is a very cosmopolitan city along with a location which gave us easy access to all Nice has on offer.

We are located in central Nice in the Carre d’Or (Golden Square) district. It is 3 blocks behind the world renowned Hotel Negresco and Musee d’Art et Histoire and a short walk from the beach.

About Me and my family
We are a family of 7 and have owned our apartment for over 13 years and our family home in Higham for over 26 years (Simply Owners ref ). Both our properties provide space for us all to enjoy our time together and offer a great base from which to explore the French riviera and the English countryside

Why we chose Nice
I first visited in Nice 34 years ago when I worked the charter yachts along the Cote D'Azur. The South of France has one of the most stunning coast lines and fantastic all year round weather. Of all the magnificent towns of this region we chose Nice as it really does have something for everyone. It is a vibrant city on the sea. We spent a long time searching for the perfect holiday home and we believe we found it in Palais Yolande. It is in a very lovely area of Nice and offers a truly French experience. We have let the apartment for holidays for a number of years now. I have enjoyed the fact that others have likewise got pleasure from our second home and it is extremely important to me that your holiday experience is as near perfect as possible.

What makes this Apartment unique
Palais Yolande has history. It was built in the famous Haussmann style at the end of the 1800's to house the bourgeois during their winter season on the coast. Old Town was built for the poorer working classes and Carre D'or and especially Blvd Victor Hugo, for the elite. Palais Yolande sits on a wide tree lined boulevard with many other architecturally stunning buildings. From the balconies of the apartment you can see the garden square, Jardin D' Alsace Lorraine, with its mature exotic trees and plants, benches and fountains, statutes and walkways. A lovely gated children's playground is located in one corner where you will find local children and their parents wiling away their time. Both the building and the apartment have retained many original features and the domes are prominent in the local skyline. The wonderful Edwardian lift, although recently forced to endure an EU make-over, has been done in such a way that its original charm has been preserved. There are many reminders of the way the rich lived, with servants quarter in the attic giving access to the rooftops where no doubt the domestic staff took their air. A back staircase is a reminder of the 'not seen and not heard policy' for the servants who used it to move from the apartments to their rooms without any of the owners having to spy them on the large sweeping marble staircase. The now defunct concierge lodge, which can be seen as you enter the main building, leads down to the basement where there is a warren of rooms - take a look although it is not recommended for the faint hearted. We looked for a long time in many areas of Nice before we chose Palais Yolande. We felt that it provided us with the feel of a truly French experience despite the fact that Nice is one of the most cosmopolitan of european cities. It is local people who live here too and local shops and bars surround us. However, it is central to all that Nice has to offer.

I will provide you with a booking form to sign on reservation and the terms and conditions. I ask for a 25% reservation deposit on booking and the balance 6 weeks before the date of the letting.
A damage deposit of £350 is required with the balance. This will be returned provided the apartment is left in good order.
Please email for prices. Those quoted on this website are for 6 persons. 2 additional beds can be provided up to a maximum occupancy of 8 persons in total. Each additional person will be charged at £75 for the duration of their stay.
A cleaning charge of £170 is added for stays of less than 7 nights.

I am obliged to collect tourist tax at a rate of €0.65 per person (18 and over) per night Oct to March and €0.75 per person (18 and over) per night April to September.

The apartment is registered with the local Mairie with Registration Number: 06088003629NH

Lovely Spacious Apartment in Great Locatio

By Marian A on 23-Jul-2018

From the moment we booked this apartment, way back in January, Janette was extremely helpful. We are a group of 4 ladies, celebrating a significant birthday, and this apartment was perfect for us. As there were only 4 of us, we could spread out but the flat sleeps 8 and could sleep 7 in separate beds, so perfect for groups like ours. When we arrived, Janette's friendly representative in Nice showed us round and explained everything about cooker, washing machine, dishwasher tv, wifi etc.. Wifi was very good! The flat was modern with contemporary furnishings and very spacious. The beds were extremely comfortable and the location was brilliant. Walking distance from the Old Town and the sea. The local architecture was beautiful and we were also close to the main shopping streets. We had a wonderful time exploring Nice and surrounding area, including trips to Monaco, Ventilmiglia (in Italy) and Grasse. We also felt there was plenty more to see and would definitely stay in this apartment again. You will not be disappointed if you stay in this apartment!!

By Jean D on 01-Jun-2017

Everything about our stay was perfect. Dealing with Janette was a pleasure. So professional from start to finish. The location of the apartment was superb. All arrangements went perfectly and the apartment was equipped with everything you could think of. Janette provided lots of valuable information about Nice and surrounding area to make our holiday just wonderful. No time wasted trying to find our way around, just consulted Janette's information books and we found all we needed. we would not hesitate to recommend Janette's apartment to anyone and we will definitely be back.

Excellent stay in Nice

By Lisa W on 08-May-2017

7 ladies enjoyed a wonderful stay in this apartment. We found it spacious, spotlessly clean and very well appointed. The location was very good, a few minutes from the sea front, beach and various supermarkets. We spent several evenings in the flower market area which was about a 15 minute walk. We would highly recommend this as a base for a stay in Nice
