About the home
The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a beautiful 1920's Art Deco building. It is light, bright, recently renovated and feels extremely spacious as the ceilings are 12 feet high. All rooms open out from an open plan entrance area with an exquisite terrazzo floor which flows through into the Kitchen and Bathroom. There are parquet floors in the Living room and the Bedroom and both of these rooms have French windows (with shutters) opening onto Juliette balconies overlooking mature gardens. There is just so much charm and French chic about this apartment!
The spacious Bedroom has a King size bed which on balmy days really benefits from having double exposure (a window at the front and back of the room) to allow a cooling breeze to flow through it. There is good storage space in the Bedroom to house your holiday wardrobe during your visit.
The Kitchen is extremely well equipped with plenty pots, delf, cutlery, glassware and utensils so it is no problem at all to cook a gastronomical delight should you wish to take a break from all the fabulous restaurants that Nice has to offer.
The Bathroom is large and spacious (unusual in a lot of Nice apartments) and boasts to having the luxury of a bath as well as a shower, a bidet, toilet, sink and mirror area. There is also a wall mounted cabinet and shelves to hold your toiletries and necessities during your stay.
As all rooms have frontage on the building, this is an extremely bright living space.

The Sitting room and Bedroom have Juliette balconies which overlook mature gardens. It's just blissful to wake up to the view of palm trees first thing in the morning or to enjoy them from the sitting room while having your apperitif in the evening.
If you close the shutters and leave the full length windows open when you leave, on your return, after a hard day at the beach or sight seeing, the apartment will be cooler and more tranquil. You can sip a glass of well earned vino sitting at the bistro table by the french windows, overlooking the palm tree garden. There is also a powerful and silent fan which provides a current of cool air should the temperature really rise.
Unfortunately, this apartment is not suitable for people with restricted mobility as it is on the third floor and the building (like a lot of buildings in Nice) has no lift.

This apartment is just the ideal central location to base your holiday from but still manages to be out of the late night hours hustle and bustle of bars and nightclubs.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur / Alpes-Maritimes region
In the Cote d'Azur region the temperature in summer, is usually between 25 and 35 degrees centigrade, with clear blue skies and plenty to do on the beaches or just simply, relax. On average, there are over 300 days of sunshine annually in the Nice area. The Mediterranean climate makes it generally quite mild in the winter months with very moderate rainfalls. At night, its never that cold. In the short winter it is usually around 10 degrees but can go as low as zero though snow in Nice is rare. Just over an hour away by car are several ski resorts. Geographically, Nice is sandwiched between Cannes and Monte Carlo and has excellent bus and train connections to both. It is one of the few European cities to have such a well connected airport within ten minutes of the city centre. To the West. Take the Bus 94 or 400 to St Paul de Vence, (takes 40 mins) Take the train to Biot, Antibes and complete the journey to Cannes which is about 25 minutes from Nice and just an hour from St Tropez. To the East, Monte Carlo is a 20minute train journey away. It is only around 65 minutes to the Val D'Isere ski resort on the Italian border. The journey to Italy takes you through Villefranche, Eze, Menton and Monaco and is definitely worth while visiting.
The Nice / Central Nice area
The apartment is a 5 minute walk from the Promenade des Anglais were you can relax and soak up the sun on the popular private "Hi" Beach, or public "Forum" Beach, which has a lifeguard station and supervised bathing during the summer months. You can have a leisurely breakfast or lunch at one of the many seaside restaurants or if you are feeling more energetic, maybe try some of the water sports available during the summer months. The apartment is also just a short walk to the train station (12mins away). It is therefore in an ideal location for going on day trips to neighbouring Monaco, Antibes and Cannes. Avenue Jean Medecin is the main shopping street and is just a 15 minute walk away from the apartment. There is a choice of high street fashion to designer boutiques and of course more cafes. Nice also offers a huge array of retail delights ranging from traditional olive oil shops in the Old Town to streets of designer boutiques such as Rue Paradis which is home to Chanel, Louis Vuitton and many other haute couture names. The Old Town is less than 20 minutes away. Here you will find restaurants and bars in abundance as well as a large selection of shops providing hand crafted jewellery, clothes, gifts and local art. A visit to the famous ‘Cours Saleya’ market is a must. If you are not the walking type, there is a bus stop on the street and this is serviced by routes which go to the main shopping area, the Old Town, the Port and the Airport. Don't bother with car hire, transport in Nice is cheap and efficient with a choice of tram, bus or train. Buses and trams are 1 euro per person and with a bus stop on the street, your options are limitless! For those of you whose interests lie particularly in culture, explore the many museums and art galleries in town including the Matisse Museum, Chagall Museum and the renowned Museum of Contemporary Art . There are also numerous historical buildings and beautiful places of worship that are well worth a visit. The opera, casinos, museums, pubs, restaurants and shopping on offer can certainly keep you busy! Nice is a vibrant and diverse city that has something to offer and appeal to everyone. There are plenty of historical sites to visit such as the Chateau at the heart of Vieux Nice and the roman ruins in Cimiez. This apartment is very popular with holidaying couples who want a very central location close to where all the action takes place, but away from what can be, the very noisy late night hustle & bustle of the pedestrianised streets and the Old Town. All in all, this apartment is perfect for a romantic getaway, a break with friends, a birthday / anniversary celebration or simply a home away from home. It is an ideal 'pied-a-terre' from where you can explore all the great things the beautiful French Riviera has to offer! Book a week and Enjoy!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fleurs. The apartment is very spacious, very clean, very well-appointed. Its location is excellent, being on several bus routes and close to all the shops you could wish for, and with plenty of restaurants nearby. The Prom des Anglais is a short stroll away, and you can easily walk along the prom to get to the Old Town. Both the owner and the manager were very helpful throughout. The only downsides to consider are the traffic noise, which occasionally (only) was too much, and the fact that the apartment does not get any sun. In the height of summer this could be a distinct advantage, but in a chiller-than-average May, we missed it. However, there are so many positives to this let, we would still heartily recommend it.

My husband and I wanted a special trip to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary - Nice and this apartment fitted the bill very well.
Jemma, the owner, is very professional, knowledgeable and willing to answer all queries in great detail. The booking process is very straightforward and the apartment managers are friendly and obliging.
The apartment itself is very well equipped and was very cosy, which was most welcome as the weather was not brilliant during our stay! As mentioned in other reviews, it is on the third floor so the less fit may find the stairs challenging. Being in the city centre, some traffic noise is inevitable but having several different buses stopping nearby is an advantage, including the No.23 from the airport (takes about 25 mins).
A trip to the top of Castle Hill is a must as the views are amazing. Also visits to Monaco and the hilltop ancient village of Eze, all easily accessible by bus or train. In fact you can get buses all over the place for just 1 euro per person per trip, making it very good value.
If you are planning a trip to Nice, definitely consider booking this apartment.

This is a comfortable, well equipped apartment with the bonus of central heating for visits during the cooler weather. Although it is on the third floor the stairs are not steep. We were met by the helpful apartment manager as we had arranged. The location is ideal as it is only 5 minutes from the promenade. The area feels safe and has a good variety of local (not tourist) shops. Jemma was very helpful during the booking process and we would be very happy to use this apartment again.
