The apartment is situated in West Nice, in the Magnan Quartier. The beach is just a couple of minutes walk away as are mini super markets, small restaurants, boulangeries and pizzerias all around. This is a great area if you are seeking a beach holiday but wish to head into the city every so often. Frequent bus services run during the day and taxis all night to take you into the hub of the shopping areas and the buzzing nightlife of the Old Town. It takes just 5-10 minutes by taxi to the Old Town and Port areas.
There are also ‘Velo Blue’ (public bicycles) available along the Promenade, which you can rent for a lovely ride along the seaside to the Cours Saleya market to buy fresh flowers and produce. Alternatively an easy 20-minute walk will bring you downtown and in less than 10 minutes to the famous Negresco Hotel.
The apartment building is a classic Art Deco design featuring beautiful elements from this era such as marble floors, mirrors and decorative wrought iron accents. The apartment is located on the 6th floor (out of 7 floors) affording you glorious sea views. For your convenience there is a lift to take you to the apartment.
The living area is open plan with the dining space and newly decorated in soothing neutral tones. The furniture is contemporary yet comfortable. The couch easily seats four and sits opposite the large flat screen TV (WiFi and cable are available with several foreign language news channels including English, Russian and Arabic). The room opens out onto a large glassed-in terrace, giving the space lots of light. The spacious terrace has gorgeous sea views and is designed to maximise the view and relaxation while providing shelter and privacy. The terrace has a wonderful outdoor sofa and table, and is the perfect spot for a glass of rosé with friends or family.
The contemporary dining table next to the living area easily sits four and there is even a small workstation for writing your holiday postcards or memoirs.
