L'Art des amis (the art of friends) is a beautiful one-bedroom penthouse apartment on the 6th floor (7th U.S.) with a large south-facing terrace of a beautiful Belle Époque building in the Musicians Quarter in central Nice, 5 blocks off the beach, directly behind the Negresco Hotel. Step into the antique cage elevator and be swept up to a romantic vacation escape you will never forget! Facing south, warm sunlight floods the apartment from morning till sunset. French doors in the living room, kitchen, and bedroom open onto balconies where you will enjoy the breezes and rooftop views towards the sea. (That French flag you see fluttering in the distance tops the Negresco.) The art of personal friends is featured throughout.
Remodeled to bring it closer in feeling to the architecture of the Belle Époque period, the apartment features new wood flooring in the living room and bedrooms and period tile set in the entry and kitchen. The kitchen cabinetry has been completely replaced and matching wainscoting installed along with all new appliances and granite countertops. Step through the French door onto to balcony and enjoy petit déjeuner in the sun at your café table for two. Dishes, glassware, flatware, espresso maker and kitchen utensils are all provided should you choose to try your hand at Niçoise cooking. The living room features a black George Nelson-inspired couch for 3 and a comfortable modern 'lipstick' armchair. Flat screen TV, DVD, and internet access provided. The glass coffee table design is by Isamu Noguchi (1948), end tables by Eileen Gray (1927), and glove table lamp by Wilhem Wagenfeld (1924.) While this is actually an 'adult' apartment experience, children are welcome!

Apartment is flat and there is a small lift/elevator. However, there are a few steps to the elevator level and door might be too small for access. We have been advised by a previous renter that a wheel chair will not properly fit and the apartment poses some problems....moreless

Note: the living room couch converts to a 'double' bed that will sleep an additional 1-2 people. A frosted glass door closes to provide privacy should the living room be used as a bedroom and the french doors to the balcony may be opened there too allowing both sleeping areas access to the fresh Mediterranean breeze....moreless

Car: Not Necessary
The apartment is in the Quartier Musiciens (Musicians Quarter) in central Nice, a well-kept, stylish, residential quarter 5 blocks from the sea and famous Promenade des Anglais- the perfect place to stroll as visitors have done for more than a century. The busy shopping/restaurant areas of rue Massena and Avenue Jean Medecin are 10-15 minutes on foot and the wonderful 'Old Town' a 20 minute stroll for dinner! Nearby on Boulevard Victor Hugo is the Jardin d'Alsace Lorraine, a quiet garden respite. Downtown terrain is basically flat which makes walking a pleasure!
A car is definitely not needed to enjoy your vacation in Nice. Train and bus service is easily available for visits to other wonderful Riviera sites and in addition Auto-Bleue, a short-term electric rental car service has autos available in the block next to the apartment. For information see their site at www.autobleue.org. At the top of the screen you can choose an English translation of the page.

About the owner: We live in Seattle, Washington USA and when we are here, we are dreaming about our next visit to Nice. We are avid francophiles and do our French lessons everyday. Here's a link about us and our property: http://www.frenchentree.com/fe-wemadeit/DisplayArticle.asp?ID=781
Why the Owner Chose Nice:
Angels brought us to our 'dream in the sky!' Our finder Rebecca Russell was one (www.coteabode.com) and the Niçois selling agent the other. His name was Ange and he flew up the 7 flights of stairs to meet us there while we went up in the caged elevator. He had wings, because he met us at the top when the elevator arrived. We were captivated by the apartment's charm and views. You just know when it's right! More about our buying experience: http://www.frenchentree.com/fe-wemadeit/DisplayArticle.asp?ID=781
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
180 degree rooftop views and centrally located to walk to every area of Nice in minutes. Close to the grocery store. Close to a large park. Close to local restaurants. Peaceful neighborhood. Charming caged elevator and old-world charm. Seriously, what's not to love!
