Classy & Contemporary with a Romantic Twist
This 3-bedroomed apartment just off the Port of Nice, known locally
as Port Nicea, boasts no less than 4 balconies, a huge open plan
living area with air conditioning, a DVD player, and Sky television
with full subscription.
"Wow Factors" are abundant in this extremely spacious second floor
apartment in a renovated historic Niçois building. A real home away
from home, the apartment boasts high quality furnishings and decor,
including original artwork by the owner.
As you walk into the apartment you are immediately greeted by lots
of light which streams into the apartment from the five huge windows
that surround the open plan living area. Real wood flooring and high
ceilings complement the feeling of a huge airy space.
The kitchen has everything you need to cook family meals including a
microwave, huge range cooker with a grill, fridge freezer, kettle,
and toaster. There is also a dishwasher and all necessary tableware
and utensils. The kitchen worktop looks out onto the main living
area separated by a large zinc breakfast bar. On the other side of
the breakfast bar, there are three contemporary bar stools for those
who want to watch the cook at work.
In the living area itself are two huge extremely comfortable white
leather sofas, from where you can relax and watch the full Sky
package including films and sports channels. The living area leads
onto a dining area which seats six. A large modern light fitting
with dimmer switch is fitted over the table for cosy dinner parties
and to the right of the table there are two large storage areas
fitted with louvred doors. Throughout the open plan living area
there are complimentary tables, drawers, chairs, cushions, and large
painted canvasses which all add a touch of class to the apartment.
The master bedroom hosts romantic French furniture and French doors
lead out into a small balcony, perfect for pleasant morning
breakfasts. This is just one of the four balconies from which you
can enjoy the Mediterranean sun from breakfast onwards.
Bedrooms two and three host four poster beds. The second bedroom has
a double bed and the third a single. Please note that the third
bedroom leads off from the second and so would be unsuitable if the
guests in the second room did not want to be disturbed.
A huge bath with shower attachment is the focal point of the large
bathroom, positioned on the right. A walk-in shower is to the left
and centrally there is a large sink with storage space underneath.
On the back wall there is a large mirror and a towel radiator and a
well placed plug socket for hair drying or shaving. Tucked neatly
away, the bathroom also hosts a washing machine and separate tumble
The apartment was originally built to house the entourage of the
House of Lascaris. Just next to the port, it is centrally situated
within easy walking distance (10 minutes) of all that Nice has to
offer, including the famous Promenade des Anglais and the Old Town.
It also benefits from being in a quiet residential block of French
owners where you can experience real Nice with small local shops
including a delicious patisserie and a traditional boulangerie
around the corner. A locals bar at street level serves drinks and
lunches which adds ambience in the day, but it closes after early
evening so you can enjoy tranquillity. A small convenience store is
less than a minutes walk away and for more substantial shopping
Carrefour, a hypermarket, with other high street stores in the
complex, is within a 10-minute walking distance.
The fantastic Michelin-starred restaurant Jouni is almost opposite
the apartment and the Michelin-starred restaurant l¹Ane Rouge is
just a three minute walk away. The bus station and the train
station, Riquier, are also within easy walking distance. For those
with cars, there are two large public car parks nearby one at the
port and the other named Rue Barla a few minutes walk away.
For this apartment, the owner requests that a £ 300 security deposit
is held during your stay. This is taken from you on arrival and
returned to you when you leave. Currently, this is taken by way of a
cheque in your home currency. This is soon to be replaced by taking
a credit card number and authority to charge it. When this is
available we will post it on the site.
We are flexible on arrival dates, times, and length of your stay. We
can usually offer a discount on bookings of less than a week.
