You can then have your breakfast and look at the sea as the sun rises and have your dinner with the same view as the sun sets with a beautiful view of the illuminated city and it's Promenade. Because of its unique location, the apartment is very quiet. There is a private garage for one car or you may leave the car in a parking lot. There is one bathroom and a separate room for the toilet.

All windows have electric shades. Beds and furniture are new, except early XIX century Provencal chairs in the living room and a Louis-Philippe cupboard in one bedroom.

Neighborhood and weather: Nice is the French's fifth largest city - well served by an international airport, trains, highways, and a harbor. Nice has its own opera house, many cinemas where films in English are shown. The city is at a 20-minute drive to Monte Carlo or Italy (180 kilometers from Genoa), 25 minutes to Provencal villages such as Saint-Paul de Vence and Monte-Carlo, and 80 kilometers from ski slopes (South Alpes). There is a 20-minute walk to the beaches, ten by bus, and five by car.

The swimming is very pleasant since the water temperature can reach 28 degrees Celsius during the summer. Even though people swim all year round, it is comfortable till late October. Warm enough to grow grapefruit and oranges not to mention the famous small Nice olives, the area is the warmest and the sunniest of France. The dry Mediterranean climate gives a summer average between 25 and 30 degrees, 15-20 during winter (but it can be 26 on the terrace in January).

Since the apartment is located on a hill and with its three orientations, it enjoys a natural and pleasant breeze. In winter time, it is warm enough to lunch on the terraces and go skiing in the afternoon...

                                                              Good morning and thank you for your kind note. While reading it, I realized it was for all these reasons I bought the property that maintains its magic also during the winter. Happy you enjoyed your stay it and would love to welcome you again.

                                                              Stunning panoramic views of Nice & fully equipped

                                                              Robert K.

                                                              If you enjoy looking out on a panoramic view of the Med, the Promenade des Anglais, Nice and the Alps from your balcony, you'll love this place. Throw in the fact that the 2 br apt is spacious with every possible requirement, has a private garage, and an owner who is exceptionally helpful and available and i dont think there is a better value in all of Nice.

                                                              The central location is ideal, close but just beyond the hustle of city centre. The kitchen is fully equipped with quality everything perfect for cooking in with a huge selection of wonderful restaurants close by. We will be back for another visit and will stay here.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you so much Robert, it was such a joy to share with you what I like the best in the region and I am happy if I have helped to make your stay a very pleasant experience. Hope you will come back again.

                                                              Beautiful and comfortable stay above the city of Nice and the Med beyond

                                                              My husband, daughter and I used this lovely, well-appointed apartment high above Nice for a base from which to explore the French Riviera. The beds are very comfortable and the shower is another nice feature. Meals can be taken on the balcony with sweeping views of the city and surrounding hillside and the sunsets are spectacular! If you are a confident driver we'd recommend having a car (there is a garage provided) but there is also a convenient bus stop at the end of a steep drive. There is a good Carrefour supermarket close by at the end of the road with as well as a pharmacy. No restaurants to conveniently walk to but we enjoyed our own evening meals al fresco. Norman is an attentive owner and very helpful in answering questions.

                                                              Beautiful view from a restful apartment

                                                              We loved our stay at this apartment in Nice. The apartment is the most comfortable, well appointed house or apartment we have ever rented. It is also well decorated and lovely. The view of the city and harbor is stunning. We loved watching all the boats, large and small, coming and going, as well as the people swimming in the sea. It was very restful to be able to come home to a quiet beautiful space after a full day of fun and activities.

                                                              Dear Elizabeth,

                                                              Thank you for these kind words, it is very important to me that visitors have the full experience of the apartment meaning more than its exceptional view. I hope you will be coming back and remember former tenants get 10% off on their next rental.

                                                              Kind regards


                                                              Perfect location & wonderful apartment

                                                              Well appointed apartment with great views of Nice & the harbour. Norman was exceptional with his correspondence & details about the area. Public transport is convenient at the end of the winding road - not for the faint hearted by car!! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return

                                                              We had a lovely stay in the apartment on Mount Boron.

                                                              The views are fantastic and it was interesting to watch the ships and the ferries from Corsica make their way through the narrow harbour opening.

                                                              The paprtment is very well equipped with a full kitchen and an amazing new shower.

                                                              Thank you Norman!

                                                              We are so glad to return to Bellesplaisances.

                                                              Thank you Mary Anne. I am so happy you like your stay as much as the last one. And hope to see you again, soon!



                                                              Mont Boron, Nice, France

                                                              This is the best of many worlds. Ideally located on the top of a hill in Nice, you can experience the unique view of the Mediterranean, day and night (stunning city view at night) and sleep in the best condition since the 2 bedrooms open on a park and on a terrace. There are so many things to do in the area not to mention Italy which is just a 45 minutes drive, Monaco 30 minutes.
