Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-3)

The apartment of approximately 55 sqm is located on the 2th floor of a restored Belle Epoque building with intercom system. The building is a few blocks from the Place Masséna and the Old Town, in the heart of Nice. This building was built in 1905, the beginning of the 20 century that made it a HISTORICAL ARCHITECTURAL BUILDING.The mayor of Nice try to maintain and keep closely the beauty of that kind of old and ancestral building with his architecture french and italian style.Those kind of old building are the treasure of NICE like Negresco.

You enter the apartment through a large hallway leading to the bedroom, which is on your left hand side, and to the living area on your right. It's equipped with air-conditioning and we have also the soundproof windows that we just renovate and will allow you to relax at home without any External sound. Not every appartment have that kind of windows that are essential in the centre of Nice or in the old town.

The living room is furnished with a sofa, a lounge table, a desk, and three chairs. A Round terasse offers a wonderful view over the city and the surrounding mountain.You can eat from that terasse winter as summer and you will have the wonderful view of everything.

That kind of terrasse is a old style of architecture call une 'rotonde' from 1905.

The open kitchen is equipped with electric induction hotplates, a grill oven, a refrigerator / freezer, a toaster, a kettle and a coffee maker. There is also a window facing the mountains.

The bedroom has a French window opening onto a balcony and overlooking the city. The bedroom is furnished with a double size bed and has a large built-in mirrored closet.

The bathroom has a shower, a sink with mirror and water closet.

The apartment is located two streets from the Galeries Lafayette and Place Masséna, and five minutes walk from the sea and the Old Town. The 'Vieux Nice' contains a treasure-trove of Baroque art from the 17th and 18th centuries. There are many churches among the narrow streets of this fascinating and timeless district of Nice. All the shops, restaurant and cafés are nearby. Bakeries, groceries, dry-cleaners - you are in one of the French largest cities and everything is within reach.

Nice, nestled amidst hills and tucked into the unrivalled setting of the 'Baie des Anges', is famous for its liveliness and its dynamism. It is also, after Paris, the city that boasts the higher number of Museums in France ; among others, the Chagall Museum and the Matisse Museum. But Nice is also a real melting pot : the city has preserved numerous traces of its eventful past and the diversity of its architecture shows how numerous were the worldwide influences.

The Nice train station is served by the high-speed TGV (the 'Train Grande Vitesse,' only five hours from Paris). The international airport (Nice-Côte d'Azur), has been built on land reclaimed on the sea, and offers daily flights to/from New York. Otherwise most international flight connections are made through Paris. With a car, Italy is only 20-30 minutes away.

Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

After deciding against staying at a hotel for our 2 week vacation, my husband & I looked for an apartment & fell in love with the architecture of the building & neighbourhood. The apartment was clean, modern, very spacious by European standards & comfortable. The kitchen was fully functional with high-end appliances for the meals we made. The washer/dryer was very convenient. We brought our own clothes line to hang laundry, which dried VERY quickly. (Owner might consider providing a drying rack to hang laundry.) The bathroom had a large medicine cabinet to unpack toiletteries & a great shower. The modern windows really cut down on the street noise & we slept well. The wi-fi & internet phone were appreciated. The apartment was so close to everything that we could stop back to drop off our shopping, rest or freshen up before heading out to another part of town. We were able to walk everywhere. The owner was also very kind & helpful to point out city highlights on our arrival & was available by phone if we needed to call. We hope to return & rent from this owner again.

Nice vacation

  • 5 of 5

we had a lovely 2 weeks stay in this apartment. we were met on arrival and shown everything we need . the apartment was clean , well equipped, comfortable bedding, free WiFi internet access. perfectly situated within walking distance to stores, beaches, downtown, restaurants, etc. there is public transit right outside the door. just 10 min walk to Prom. Anglais, Massena, Old city.

The owner was in touch during our stay to ensure everything was to our liking. in addition there was a contact list to call if you encounter any difficulties or have questions .

we will stay there again if we return to Nice and we would recommend this apartment to friend and family.

thank you, Vanina !

Romantic Pied-a'-terre

  • 4 of 5

Location, location, location! This Darling apartment is located in a pretty neighborhood that is convenient to everything. Literally; a 5-10 minute walk to the best places in Nice including the flower market, restaurants, public transportation, parks and beach.The neighborhood is welcoming, safe and upscale.The apartment has all of the comforts of home. It was a great and romantic place to stay for a month. My favorite room was an enchanting coupela where we enjoyed many quiet meals after picking up fresh produce, fish, meats and flowers at the outdoor market.We were in our "private street café " when enjoying this room! The owner is very kind and helpful. The only drawback is that there is no lift. One should be able to comfortabley climb 53 steps (Yes, I counted).

My husband and I look forward to visiting this apartment again!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Vanina's apartment. The location was perfect with easy access to the different areas of interest in Nice. The apartment was very nice and worked well for the three of us. Vanina was responsive to our requests and even assisted us by taking delivery of one of our bags that was lost in transit (allowing us not to waste a day of our holiday sitting around waiting for delivery of our bag. We would stay here again. Thanks for everything, Vanina.

Modern apartment in the center

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean, wifi worked, shower pressure was very nice. Kitchen was well-equipped. I was surprised not find a single piece of a toilet paper, tissue or paper towel in the apartment, so I had to run to the store right away. Sheets were clean, but stained.

The owner was professional, but not very helpful in terms of local tips/suggestions.

Owner's Response: Hi Maria, I am sorry for the toilet paper, as my housekeeper told me 2 days later to your arrival, that she forgot to replace it. Also, my mistake, was that I also forgot to check it, because you asked me to come for the check in, at the apartment very late, around 20H30 Pm and it was the 15 of August, a very important evening in France. No other owner would have accepted that you arrive so late but I did. I waste the all evening home, waiting for your arrival, to give you the keys and explanations. Unfortunately, I forgot to check the paper but why you didn't call me? You asked me for more sheets, so why not telling me for the paper, I would have give you some. I live close by the apartment, I told you. Why also, you didn't asked me any tips beside the parking that I advised you, and I remember that, even that night, I advised you, to go to the beach and see the "fire work" which was extraordinary. I am confuse about your expectations...Thanks Vanina Takvorian

Excellent Apartment, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Nice and completely enjoyed staying in this clean, spacious apartment. The location was fantastic...a short walk to Place Massena, old Nice, and the tram which gave us easy access to the train station and the entire Cote d'Azur. We did not need a car. The building is located on a busy street which is rather noisy, but once the windows are closed it was very quiet inside. There are many shops and cafes very close by. We especially loved the wine shop down the street with the glass floor entrance, baby grand piano and the most helpful staff. The owner was very helpful, making the booking process very convenient and helping with suggestions during our stay. I would recommend this apartment and hope to be able to visit again someday.
