Nice Apartments from Nice Pebbles: Big enough to count, small enough to care
Established in 2006, Nice Pebbles has gained a reputation for high-quality service combined with top class rental apartments in Nice. All of our Nice apartments offer comfort, cleanliness, and convenience. Nice Pebbles take great pride in their holiday apartments in Nice and we strive to be competitive both in price and quality.
Here are seven reasons why we hope you will trust us to find your holiday apartment in Nice.
1. Our reputation
Don't just take our word for our high commitment to service and quality, see what others have said about us. Over 50% of our guests are returning guests, over 5% have stayed with us more than 30 times now! Many of our customers have been kind enough to sing our praises on social media, travel forums, blogs and amongst friends. Many moons ago, when travel books were the ultimate referral, we caught the interest of the respected travel guides in the industry including Frommer's, Fodor’s, Lonely Planet, TimeOut and The Independent. You can read the many reviews about us on our RAVES page or the feefo reviews, accessed from the home page or apartment pages
- We lived in Nice for seven years, and now divide time between Nice and the UK. Our team is based in both Nice and the UK spread over two offices. We all care about our guests and the service we offer.
2. All our Nice Pebbles holiday rental apartments are selected by hand
According to over ten guidebooks and feedback from thousands of customers, our Nice apartments are the best on offer in central Nice. Nice Pebbles apartments are chosen for their location, their furnishings and finish as well as amenities. If a rental apartment does not come up to our high Nice Pebbles standards, we won’t add it to our portfolio. Nice Pebbles apartments are all within 15 minutes walking distance to Nice’s 5km-long pebbley beach on the Promenade des Anglais. This was why we chose our name Nice Pebbles. Use the map link on any apartment page to locate the apartment.
- As you can see, all of our Nice apartments are centrally located and are close to shops, restaurants, parks and cafés.
3. We're on hand during your stay
For your peace of mind during your stay, we have an office in Central Nice, at 32 rue Tonduti de l'Escarene within 15 minutes walk of most of our Nice Pebbles apartments. Our Nice office is open between 10am - 12:00 and 12:30 – 5pm Monday to Friday and Saturday from Easter through September. We’re on hand by telephone (+33 (0)4 97 20 27 30) during your stay to help with any questions or queries. We have a dedicated customer service team in our UK office available to help by email and on the phone between 9:00 - 18:30 Monday to Saturday and 9:00 - 15:30 on Sundays.
- We have a central Nice Pebbles office AND a customer care line open every day from French time, 8am to midnight.
4. We're committed to find the right holiday apartment for you
All prices are chosen by us, not the owners, and we write the descriptions honestly and fairly without any bias. You will see we highlight both negatives as and positives on each property’s testimonials page. We want all our guests to be happy with the apartment they choose and know it’s important for us to give as much information as possible. We're more than happy to discuss your shortlist with you over the phone or by email, and there are designated staff to help with this. We can tell you how big the lift is if you are coming with children. We can tell you whether there is a shop a few minutes away. And we can even tell you how steep any stairs are.
- All members of the team are very familiar with the apartments on our portfolio. If you need answers, please just ask!
5. Our service to our guests
We offer flexibility on arrival dates, online booking and a personal service up to and including arrival. On arrival every guest is personally greeted and taken to their apartment in Nice. Our team offers guidance on what to do and where to go during their stay, as well as a full orientation on the apartment and the area. Once we've left you to enjoy your holiday there's always plenty of literature, including our Pebbles Guide to the French Riviera for you to read at leisure. Guests also have numbers to reach us if they need to, and can pop into the shops during office hours.
- We're here to help you enjoy your holiday with us from start to finish.
6. Flexible check in and check out
We offer a check in and check out service – just like a hotel! Around 90% of the time, we'll accommodate our guests checking in early at their Nice rental apartment, or at the very least leaving luggage there until check in is possible. The same goes for check out. Where this isn't possible, guests are welcome to store luggage free of charge during work hours at either of our central Nice Pebbles offices.
- We want to help those with early arrivals or late flights home, not punish them.
Our guests tell us that once they’ve stayed in one of our Nice rental apartments, they will never book a hotel in Nice again!
Living like a local in a Nice apartment is a great way to experience Nice and the French Riviera. We know we can’t compete with the hotel lobby and the daily cleaning, but there are so many advantages that our holiday apartments have over hotels. We aim to make your overall stay more comfortable than a hotel room can ever be, for a similar or sometimes cheaper price. And we don’t scrimp on the luxuries. All of our apartments are presented in the way you would expect from a boutique styled hotel – freshly laundered and pressed Egyptian cotton linen and towels and toiletries.
Apartment living has hugely dented the hotel industry in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. Do you tire of having to be ready for breakfast and then paying very high prices for a basic croissant and jam? Do you feel you sometimes spend money on drink stops when you would rather be relaxing in your chic apartment? Want a cup of tea or coffee in bed in the morning without the hassle of ordering room service?
It's a shame to visit Nice and leave without sampling the fresh produce on offer. With one of our Nice apartments, it's easy to enjoy fresh pasta, herbs, olive oil, fresh fruit, vegetables and fish from our local markets and shops. Our final tip? Relax with a bottle of chilled Bandol wine after a hard day's sightseeing or visit to the beach!
