Superb top floor apartment on one of the prettiest streets in Nice, the beautiful tree-lined rue Alphonse Karr. This property on the sixth floor of an Art Deco building (with lift) is perfectly located at the heart of the Carre d’Or. With a double aspect, the apartment has an open outlook to the East and South ensuring sunshine from sunrise over Mount Boron until late afternoon. A balcony runs the length of the apartment and is accessible from all rooms via 4 French doors. There are lovely views over the rooftops of Nice to the hills and mountains beyond, and down into the chic boutique-lined street below: the perfect place for coffee and croissants in the morning or a glass of local rose wine in the afternoon. The property was completely refurbished (2011) to include an Italian fitted kitchen, luxury bathroom, and parquet flooring and Italian floor tiling throughout. All appliances, fittings and furniture are high quality, modern and stylish.

About Graeme Marshall
My wife and I live and work in Edinburgh, Scotland. For many years we have taken our holidays in Nice, so it was the obvious place to buy our own holiday apartment.
Graeme Marshall purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Graeme Marshall chose Carre d'Or
When searching for an apartment to buy, our priorities were, central location, ease of access from the airport, top floor level (with lift) and outside space with lots of sunshine. This apartment perfectly meets all those criteria. This is our holiday apartment, designed with us in mind, and it meets our needs perfectly - we hope you will enjoy staying there as much as we do.
What makes this Apartment unique
Nice is a wonderful city - there is something for everyone to do or see, and the weather is fantastic whatever time of year you choose to visit. The property was completely refurbished in 2011. We have sought to make the most of the space available in a simple, relaxed, practical, modern yet stylish way. All materials and fittings are of high quality giving a little bit of the good life in the French Riviera - we could all do with a bit of that from time to time.
Apartment in good location but felt quite small for family of four.
Apartment was good for two days but any longer wasn't suitable for more than two people. Disappointed with linen provided no duvet available for sofa bed so had to use just a cover. Kitchen facilities good.
Thank you for your review - I am glad that found the apartment to be in a good location and well equipped. We do provide a double duvet for the sofa bed and I am sorry you were unable to find it - I will pass this information on to our agent so that she can show future guests - our agent is always available to help if there are any additional requirements or problems to be solved.
The apartment is small, but it is well planned to make maximum use of the available space. The photographs in the listing give a clear indication of the space available and the floor area is also provided in the details. I would agree that potential guests should consider the space available if staying for a longer period of time - your stay was for 2 nights. We have accommodated many groups of 3 or 4 who have been very happy with the apartment.
Thanks again for your review.
Love Nice -fantastic location . Fabulous break. Can't wait to return
Good Apartment in a Great Location
The apartment was very comfortable during our stay for me, my wife and daughter. It is in a great location right in the heart of the city. It is surrounded by many restaurants and stores. Also, it is only a short walk to the beach and train station. We would definitely like to stay here again if we return to Nice.
Thank you for your review - we are glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you back any time you are in Nice
Perfect base for exploring Nice
My first stay in the apartment but would love to return and explore more of Nice.
This is a perfect base for exploring the city with its mix of shops, sights and panoramic views.
It is a beautiful apartment; well equipped and comfortable. Despite being very central (with croissants around the corner), it is quiet.
It has everything you need and high spec to boot.
Thank you for your review - we are happy that you enjoyed your stay in Nice - we would be delighted if you choose our apartment if you decide to visit the city again

All amenities are within walking distance in a couple of minutes.

Excellent Nice apartment
We had a lovely weekend in Nice at this apartment - great location very close to cafes, restaurants and shops, and only 5 mins walk from the promenade and the sea. Slept well - good bed and quiet location. Enjoyed sitting in the sun having breakfast on the balcony!
Hi Gillian and Darren
Many thanks for your review - we are glad you had a good time.
The famous Promenade des Anglais and beach about 5 minutes walk away.
Most people arrive in Nice at the Airport. There are regular flights by both major and budget airlines from the UK and major cities across Europe. The No. 98 bus runs every 20 minutes to the city centre with a fare of €6. Alternatively we can arrange to pick you up at the airport and take you directly to the apartment (fee €35).
The apartment is located in the heart of the city so all amenities are close at hand. There are two bakeries on Rue Alphonse Karr itself; countless restaurants, bars and boutiques are minutes away; Avenue Jean Medecin, Galerie Lafayette and Place Massena (beautiful public square), and the Zone Pietonne are all within 3 minutes walk; Monoprix less than 5 minutes; and the magical old town about 10 minutes. Bus stops for trips to Monaco, Cannes, Vence etc. are all within easy walking distance.
If you are planning your first visit to Nice, or just a short city break, there is plenty to do in the city itself. Stroll around the beautiful Baie des Anges (Bay of the Angels) on the Promenade des Anglais – day or night this is populated by a varied cast of walkers, cyclists, and roller bladers out to see and be seen; eat at one of countless cafés and restaurants, from unpretentious French bistro to Michelin-starred palace, the choice is huge; explore Vieux Nice (the old town) with its narrow alleys, beautiful squares and churches, and the famous flower market in Cours Saleya; dance the night away in one of the many night clubs and casinos; visit some of the many world-class art galleries and museums; indulge in some retail therapy in hundreds of chic boutiques; stop to take in some of the street entertainment; marvel at the yachts in the port area; climb castle hill to take in the stunning views of the city; or simply chill out on the beach. If visiting for longer day trips to Cannes, Monaco, Menton, or even to Italy are easy. Even skiing and other mountain sports in the Alps are possible. There are a huge number of attractions to choose from and you are sure to find something of interest. Particularly recommended are the Musee Oceanographique in Monaco, the Picasso Museum in Antibes, the Foundation Maeght in St Paul, the hilltop villages of St Paul and Eze, the gardens of Ephrussi de Rothschild on Cap Ferrat, the Matisse Chapel in Vence, the perfumeries of Grasse, and Marineland in Antibes. Public transport in the area is excellent and cheap so there is no need for a car, but should you chose to hire one, there is a large underground car park nearby.
