The apartment is quietly situated in a leafy courtyard with an L-shaped terrace, accessible from both the bedroom and living room. The kitchen has a full size fridge, hot plates, microwave and there is a washer/dryer in the entrance hall. A sofa bed in the living room provides additional sleeping accommodation if needed.
There is a TV with some english language channels hi speed internet, wifi, ethernet and a sound bar for music.
AREA LA PROVIDENCE
The location is brilliant, being secluded yet near everything. It's quiet, there are no busy roads nearby and you can walk to the Chateau Hill Park, Cours Saleya, the Promenade des Anglais or the flower market through the charming cobbled streets of Vieux Nice.
Local shops and market stalls line the streets beneath the back stairs which lead to the old town. The antique shops and port of Nice are 5 minutes walk to the east and the beach is just 10 minutes walk through the old town to the south.
If you like to walk, enjoy being part of a village neighbourhood yet have walking access to a city then Vieux Nice is the place to be. An endless array of restaurants, bars, cafes are on your doorstep.
The back stairs of La Providence lead down to Vieux Nice, Rue Droite and Place St Francois. The front entrance is the one for Catherine Segurane, Place Garibaldi, Quartier des Antiquaires and the port.
Five minutes walk to Cours Saleya, along Rue Droite, Nice port, the chateau park, Monoprix, Cafe Turin and Place Rossetti and of course the BEACH. Tram stops for Vieux Nice Cathedral and Garibaldi are both less than 5 minutes away.
The living room has a blue leather corner sofa, several chairs coffee table, LCD TV and Sony Playstation which doubles as a CD or DVD player, jack to connect your music via ipods, iphones etc. French doors to the balcony.
The dining area, with a wooden table and seating for 4, looks out onto the Clocktower and the La Providence Cultural centre. Fairy tale views at night and you can see the snow on the hills in winter.
Wall lighting and several standing lamps.
A bar separates the kitchen from the living room. Its a full kitchen with everything you need to cook or entertain should you decide to stay in. Washing machine, fridge, dishwasher, oven , double sink, 4 ring hot plates and loads of mugs, glasses, crockery all the utensils you could need. Even a tea pot. Coffee we always take out but there is a cafetiere.
The main bathroom has a full bath and opens off the 2nd bedroom which has a high quality double sofa bed 140cm. We use this room as a study but you can close the doors and create a self contained ensuite bedroom. Complete with small chest of drawers and a wardrobe, doubles as a great airing cupboard - the hot water tank lives there too.

"Home away from home in unbeatable location"
We were looking for an apartment in a quiet location, close to all the great amenities that Nice has to offer and with good transport links. The Clocktower certainly met these requirements and has the… More
Many thanks. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the ever moving bus stops but the good news is, when the airport tram is operational, I am reliably informed by the info tram hut on Garibaldi it will stop at the bottom of our driveway. I have never owned a microwave :-) and hope the proximity and variety of local food sources made up for it.
