House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Recently refitted, this house is new to the rental market for 2010. It has the winning combination of outside space, with room to sunbathe, barbeque and relax in the jacuzzi, whilst being only a short walk from Nice Port, the Old Town and the Promenade des Anglaises. There is a small beach only one minute's walk away, with additional swimming spots and access to bus routes and bike hire almost on the doorstep. It also has two parking spaces, one of which is inside secure electric gates. There is a spiral staircase onto the flat roof deck which for sunlovers is a must. It gets the sun all day and the sea view is fantastic.
It has a flexible living space with an open plan sitting room, kitchen and dining areas inside and out. There are 3 bedrooms that can be adjusted to suit any guests needs, as well as a downstairs sofa bed for occasional use.
No expense has been spared on modern conveniences. It is fully air conditioned/heated throughout. There is an American style fridge with water and ice dispenser. There is a 42 inch tv with surround sound and UK channels and a stereo system with Ipod connectivity.
This house would suit guests who want to relax when they are home, but also want the convenience of not using a car or expensive taxis when they leave the house. Nice is on your doorstep, but you wouldn't know it!!

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Nice is a city in southern France located on the Mediterranean coast, between Marseille, France, and Genoa, Italy, with 347 060 inhabitants in the 2006 estimate. The city is a major tourist centre and a leading resort on the French Riviera (Côte d'Azur). It is the historical capital city of the County of Nice (Comté de Nice).
Nice has a Mediterranean climate: the city enjoys mild temperatures most of the year; rainfall is very moderate and mainly concentrated in the darkest part of the year (September to March).Summers are hot, dry, and sunny. Rainfall is rare in this season, and a typical July month only records one or two days with measurable rainfall. Temperatures seldom go below 20°C, and frequently reach 30°C.
Winters are characterized by mild days (11 to 17°C), cool nights (4°C to 9°C) and variable weather. Days can be either sunny and dry, or damp and rainy. Frost is unusual and snowfalls are so extremely rare that they are remembered by inhabitants as special events.
Nice has been home to famous artists like Matisse, giving the resort a touch of cultural class. It is also home to some of the world's leading galleries and museums. Food lovers will delight in the food market in Nice, the quaint cafes, and the huge selection of restaurants.
The port of Nice is a bustling area full of restaurants and bars with a safe, yet lively feel. It has a Nicoise atmosphere, with traditional Savoy building facades, and a less touristy feel than some other parts of the city. Whilst you can easily access the Cours Saleya and Old Town, you can also escape to a peaceful sea view at any point and watch both traditional and luxury yachts coming and going.
There are plenty of shops and supermarkets within easy reach, bus stops, tram stops and a train station.
