Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Sample French living on the Riviera, for a short break and live like the French for your short stay with us. Choose to rent our elegant apartment in the heart of Nice, rather than booking into a hotel. Our apartment, Les Narcices is designed by the famous Nice architect Rene Liveri in 1936.This is currently featured in an exhibition on mosaics in Nice during the Art Deco period for its pretty mosaics of Les Narcies and Les Violets.
Our elegant and stylish two bedroom apartment is on the third floor of a beautifully decorated Art Deco apartment block with its lovely entrance hall and mosaics to the exterior on the top floors.The sitting room opens on a sunny balcony overlooking the Square. The master bedroom is spacious with mirrored wardrobes a double bed and a chaise lounge. The second double bedroom has a desk, and a sunny terrace, with a view of a magnificent palm tree.
The apartment itself is beautifully renovated with high standard furniture and fittings and a brand new bathroom and Scandinavian style kitchen fully equipped with cooking pans, dishwasher. There is full central heating as well as air-conditioning in the apartment for your luxury and comfort and we have maintained all original features where possible, so we believe the interior has a soul whilst giving you all the creature comforts of modern day living.The apartment also has a lift quite unusual in Nice in older apartments with character.
The location of the apartment is superb being only a short walk from the beach and public transport.. It is only 8 to10 minutes walk to the beach, the famous Promanade des Anglais.The bus (No 23 from Terminal 1, costs only Euro 1.50) to and from the airport stops within 100 meters of the apartment , saving you time and money. The apartment is in a chic area of Nice , Quartier Musiciens where all the roads are named after musicians for example Rue Rossini, Rue Verdi etc. Being in this pretty quartier, you have the benefit of sampling brasseries, markets, delis, and boutiques mostly used by locals.
Above all this is our own holiday home away from home which we enjoy very much and hope you will too.
A warm welcome awaits you!

"Newly renovated apartment in convenient location"
We (a family of 4) had a fantastic time staying in this apartment. Its location was very quiet whilst still being ideal for using the train for day tips to Monaco, Cannes, etc. Although not close to the restaurants in the old town, we found good restaurants nearby and we were also happy to walk the 15-20 minutes to the livelier areas. Great boulangerie two doors along and plenty of supermarkets nearby.
Thank you very much for your review.I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay.
We fell in love with this this apartment for precisely the reasons you mention, charm, character, central and calm and of course location, location,location!
Thanks again and hope to welcome you again soon

"Wonderful apartment, great access!"
This apartment was a wonderful part of our stay in France. Easy access to train station, bus lines and beach, with a kitchen balcony, too. There was even an excellent boulangerie two doors down. The apartment was newly and thoughtfully redone. Having two private bedrooms and an elevator made this great for our extended family of two parents, two grand parents and one daughter. Both the owner and her agent were very helpful in recommending how to make the most of our time there.
Thank you for your review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hope we can welcome you again for a longer stay as there is so much to do and see!

I would like to begin by thanking for all the help that I got after I rented out the apartment. This was my first time in Nice and I could easily say that the advice and information that I received upon arrival has made my stay much more easier. My stay took almost four months and I enjoyed every single day.
First of all, the location is very good. I never took the bus to go to the center or the old town. The neighborhood is safe and most of the time I preferred walking even at night. There are quite a few parks where you would find people spending time with their children and pets or just having a lovely evening outside. It is also very easy to navigate as the street near by is one of the largest ones and I always used it as a reference in order not to get lost. Also it takes you right to the beach.
The inside of the apartment is very spacious. You will find all the necessities the you'd need for every day life. That even includes a bunk when you need to lay down at the beach as it made of small rocks. It is also very safe as the door is made of steel and has two locks. The apartment is very clean and has a good internet connection.
The train station is just a five minute walk so for those who like to travel it is a perfect place. There are also a pharmacy and food store on the other side of the street and if necessary there is a large supermarket just seven minutes down the large street that I was talking about before.
I also have no complaints about the neighbors. I never once herd any noise during my whole stay. The hole is cleaned every morning and there is an elevator if you are not a fan of stairs.
All in all, I had a wonderful stay and when i compared this apartment to the ones that my friend rented out this one has the best price/quality ratio. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to have a perfect stay in this beautiful city.
Thank you Lukas for your review and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay, most of my guests are repeat customers and we make them feel at home.Thanks once again and you are welcome always to return
