High above the roofs of medieval-baroque Old Nice, with an amazing dawn-to-dusk southern exposure, this immaculate studio has views to match: from the greenery of Castle Hill park or Château, to the green-and-gold stucco of the Cathedral directly opposite and across Place Rossetti.

Completely redone in 2013 in a studiously comfy, feel-at-home retro style, painted in the salmon hue of Nice's centuries-old architectural tradition, this fully equipped holiday rental prides itself on a brand new kitchen (incl. both oven and microwave, all kitchen implements) with dining table and area; a sitting / reading space, with an ample window each; and a separate night area, partitionable with sliders. The night area includes a real double bed plus coordinated desk, drawers and wardrobe, showcasing the Cathedral from the bed and the desk.

«The Swallows' Nest» further features a brand new bathroom with shower, a ceiling fan, a solid wall-mounted radiator for winter visitors (Carnival on the Côte d'Azur, anyone?), more shelving and storage space, and the sturdiest armour-plated door in town — not just safe but positively soundproof. Look out into the Mediterranean sky, and you won't know there is a building attached to your studio.
