Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
This is a smart 1960's purpose built block of apartments, all with terraces and central hot water and heating. The building is entered by a large marble foyer with two lifts available. Situated on the second floor, the Living Room, Kitchen and Bedroom all open onto the terrace through large glass doors. The floors are marble tiled and parquet in the bedroom. The whole place was refurbished by an Italian company when I purchased it, to a high standard and has a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with separate toilet. Walls are painted in soft pastels or white providing a clean relaxed ambiance. Simply furnished in imported 1970's Californian Lucite furniture, the light is reflected throughout. This will be my home in retirement so is really a' home from home'. The location is one block in from the sea, off Promenade des Anglais, in a quiet little road away from the flowing traffic. There is no private parking but there are some free spaces underneath although very popular!. Place Massena and old town are about 20 mins. walk .Rue de France is immediately behind with baker, butcher and supermarket. This road is lined with restaurants and interesting shops all the way through to Place Massena and the tramway.

We prefer bookings for just 2 people but if there is a third (family member only) wishing to stay, we can make a special arrangement - please ask.
Please note the sofa bed is across the apartment in the living area and is completely separate from the main bedroom. The sofa bed is available for two guests who may like to sleep separately or in the case of a third family joining them. ( There will be additional linen costs for the use of the sofa bed.)
There is Mobile Air condiitoning in the Bedroom only.
Please be aware that although this property is situated in a quiet impasse, it is for our convenience in a city centre and thus can still be subject to normal city noise on the peripherals. There are nightly bin collections all over the city, late night revellers sometimes on a weekend, possible building or road works and the hot french temperament can lead to their favourite occupation of bibbing or arguing in the street. This is a normal part of city life and even a quiet location can never be that country cul-de-sac in the home counties!!
|Further details outdoors||
Just to add there is a small table and two chairs on the terrace for the morning coffee, chilled lunchtime rosé or perhaps that evening Martini. There is an electric grill for cooking al fresco. The entire terrace is lined with plants providing privacy and a touch of nature. The plants get thirsty too so dont forget to give them some water; Thanks. I love my plants and they will love you too!
THERE IS £50 CHARGE FOR CLEANING;
Naturally you wil find iron and ironing board, hairdryer and numerous other items of use in the cupboards. This is my home and is equipped accordingly for full time living.
A deposit of 30% is required to hold dates and this is non refundable upon cancellation - sorry, but that's the way the cookie crumbles.
There is a deposit of £250 (cheque) upon arrival to cover damage and this will be destroyed upon cleaning if all is in order.
The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Nice is known for its hot summers on the beach and mild sunny days in the winter. Amazing architecture and wonderful restaurants make this an ever popular spot for tourists. Beautiful stretch of coast from St. Tropez to Monaco. There is never enough time to see the whole of this breathaking region. In 1 - 2 hours drive you can reach the Mercantour for walking or raquetting or generally just to enjoy the mountains.
Apart from the obvious beach activities there are many museums, galleries and designer shops in Nice itself. Just wondering the streets to admire the architecture and to stop for a cup of coffee/lunch can fill a whole day. In February there is the carnival but most weekends in the summer there are special events on the promenade which is a haven for cyclists, joggers and bladers. Just a short drive up into the hills gives the most wonderful coastal views and an insight into the luxurious villas hidden away behind trees. Christmas is magical with many extra attractions. There is a shop just in the next road where you can hire pedal bikes and motorised scooters to explore the area.
