This attractive Nice apartment with 2 bedrooms accommodating 2 to 6 people is in a very convenient location just 100 metres from the Old Town (Vieux Nice). 2 rue Papon is a traditional Nicoise house built in 1900 with a typically Nicoise entrance hall and staircase in a characteristic Nicoise street in a very central position. What is special is that this spacious, bright and sunny 2-bedroomed Nice apartment occupies the whole of the second floor of the building, so there are no other apartments on your level, thus giving additional privacy. Also, because the apartment is what the French call “traversant” (running from the front of the building through to the back), you have light from the south and the north and ‘through-air’ – very important on hot days and nights. The windows and balcony doors have the traditional wooden louvred shutters to keep the apartment cooler on very hot days.
The large sun-filled, south-facing living room has two comfortable sofas - one of which converts into a proper mattress bed to sleep a further two people if required – thus giving a total sleeping capacity of six in three separate rooms, if needed.
Bedroom One has two pairs of long windows and the original marble fireplace. The large double bed is twin-linked with separate mattresses and bases and can therefore be separated to make 2 singles if you prefer. Bedroom Two has a very comfortable sofabed, with proper mattresses, which unusually, is designed to give a single bed, or two separate single beds, or you can place the two singles side by side to create a full sized double bed....moreless
There is a separate toilet room with proper full-size windows. There is a very bright, spacious and stylish shower room with a large wash hand basin and this room also has proper full-size windows. A hair dryer is provided. Both the toilet and the shower room can be accessed at all times of the day or night without disturbing the other occupants....moreless
This Nice apartment has marble-tiled floors throughout.
