Brought to you by ParlerNiceApartments, La Côte du Paradis is a luxury apartment located in the heart of Nice’s chicest and safest districts – Le Carré d’Or. Steps away from the beach, Place Masséna and the city’s finest boutiques, La Côte de Paradis is situated on a well-known pedestrian shopping street facing south for a sunny exposure all throughout the day. Enjoy the views from the floor-to-ceiling window/doors as you can see the activity below clear to the Place Masséna and down the street in both directions. Rue Masséna and the Carré d’Or is teeming with cafés, restaurants and boutiques so you will never want for anything. One block away you'll find all the necessities (groceries, wine, bakeries, pharmacies, etc.), the rental car companies, the Parc Albert 1er and the Ruhl Casino. You are also surrounded by Nice's finest boutiques and hotels.
La Côte du Paradis has been newly renovated and professionally-designed by Interior Architect Martine di Mattéo with “Coquillages et Crustaces” by Brigitte Bardot in mind. This spacious two-bedroom luxurious apartment will put you in cool, calm spirits with its beautiful seashore motif and Côte d’Azur blue and gold tones. You will marvel at the beautiful artistic work of Mosaïste Véronique Husson, apparent throughout both the bathrooms.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a “bourgeois” building with a wide white marble staircase that provides an easy and pleasant ascent. Thanks to its location opposite a low building and facing the sea, sky and light pour in the large windows all day long.
When you first enter (the door straight ahead in the entry), you arrive in a large foyer with a console, lamps and large mirror. This is the perfect spot to drop your keys or sunglasses. A coat rack is ready for hanging a light wrap for cool Côte d’Azur evenings. A little further on the left are large storage closets, one of which houses a washer-dryer combination so you can always have freshly-washed clothing or beach towels.
On the left immediately as you enter is the first and smaller bedroom of the two, decorated in blues and yellows, inspired by the sun and sea. It has one large window that overlooks rue de la Liberté and lets in lots of light. A large mirrored sliding door closet is at your left when you enter so you can make yourself completely at home and the room has twin beds with two nightstands, each with a lamp – the beds can also be made up as one king-sized bed for any type of sleeping arrangement.
You will then be immediately drawn into the spacious living room / dining room / kitchen to your right where everyone in your party will want to be. This is the heart of La Côte du Paradis with its beautiful parquet floors, natural stone brick walls and original paintings by French artist, Pascal Amblard.
On the left, along the full length of the wall, is a contemporary kitchen complete with a three-burner stove, full-sized oven, dishwasher and large refrigerator. The cabinets above are filled with plenty of dinnerware and glassware to accommodate large parties and the kitchen is fully equipped with all the cookware and utensils you might need to make Mediterranean dinners.
On the wall next to the kitchen is a large flat-screen TV that swings out and swivels allowing you to view hundreds of channels, and a complete home video system that allows you to play DVDs, CDs and your iPod. On the table below the TV you will find one of the three cordless phones, with answering machine, that allows you to phone more than 100 countries free of charge. WiFi Internet access is available throughout the apartment. Under the TV a bookshelf houses the equipment, guidebooks, DVDs and CD’s for your enjoyment.
The Provençal Amadeus oak dining table easily seats six on “bistrot” chairs, but can seat up to eight should your friends from Le Matisse, the apartment next door, join you. Overhead is a chandelier constructed of “coquillages.”
The golden pearl leather sofa bed is both beautiful and inviting. It is adorned with a myriad of soft pillows and happily accommodates your extra guests on a comfortable high quality double-bed mattress, easy to open and use. In Riviera style, a wicker chair and coffee table completes the conversation circle and everywhere throughout the apartment you’ll be amused by the seashore knick-knacks in iridescent blues and pearlized whites.
Off the foyer is the apartment’s largest bathroom accessible to all guests. The bathtub/shower mosaic tile is a hand designed and tiled work of art. A heated towel rack keeps your towels warm and fluffy and there is plenty of cabinet space for all of your toiletries.
The master bedroom is the second bedroom adjacent to the bathroom and is an oversized room with lots of closet space so that you can unpack and make yourself at home. Between the closets is a large flat-screen TV with the same great channel selection as the TV in the living room. The queen-size bed converts to twins and this bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom with a luxury shower, also hand-tiled by our Mosaïste. This room has a balcony overlooking rue de la Liberté, large floor-to-ceiling windows and a café table with chairs for casual moments. The table and chairs can easily be moved to the balcony for outdoor enjoyment.
Both bathrooms are equipped with hair dryers and magnifying make-up mirrors. The apartment is both heated and air-conditioned so you will always be able to control the interior climate to perfection. The windows are double-paned so that outside noise can be completely shut out for total calm and quiet. Or you may choose to open them fully to take in the beautiful Niçois climate. La Côte de Paradis is also equipped with beach towels and equipment for your use on the Riviera beaches.
The apartment adjacent to La Côte du Paradis, on the same floor, is a luxury one-bedroom/one-bath apartment called Le Matisse, owned by another American family. It can be rented separately or in tandem with La Côte du Paradis. See VRBO listing #389721 and please be sure to ask us for more information.
The Carré d’Or The Carré d'Or (Golden Square) area is a centrally located vibrant, cosmopolitan district characterized by bourgeois buildings, chic cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Bordered by boulevard Victor Hugo to the north, Place Masséna and avenue Jean-Médecin to the east, boulevard Gambetta to the west and the Promenade des Anglais to the south, the Carré d'Or is a favorite area for tourists and residents. Every apartment is no more than a few minutes walk from the beach, to Vieux Nice and Nice’s best shopping. Rue Masséna, which runs from Place Masséna to rue de France, is completely pedestrianized and is lined with bustling cafés, international restaurants and chic designer shops. Apartments with views over this street are some of the most desirable properties in Nice.
Rue Masséna runs parallel to the Promenade des Anglais and is a much sought after location for vacationers and investors. Other popular streets in the Carré d'Or area include rue de la Liberté, rue Meyerbeer and rue de la Buffa. Boulevard Victor Hugo, the northern boundary of the area, is a grand French Boulevard lined with large trees and adjacent to two tranquil parks: Jardin Alsace Lorraine and Jardin Moreno Jean.
