LUXURY APARTMENT BY THE SEA ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA

Central Nice Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This lovely apartment is back in 2013 after some renovation in 2011 and it looks even more beautiful than ever before! It is located on the Promenade des Anglais, a 3 minute walk from the world famous Hotel Negresco and a 10-15 minute walk to the city centre. The apartment is on the 3rd floor with a fantastic view of the sea. It has special chandeliers in the living room & in the two bedrooms. One can watch the beautiful sunrise and the breathtaking view of the Med. Sea/Baie des Anges which one can enjoy with an unrestricted view from the balcony and the master bedroom. Each chair and sofa in the living/dining room area has a view of the sea. The windows are all double glazed thereby reducing any noise to a minimum. The hallway entrance now with elegant wall paper has interesting paintings, a wide, giant baroque mirror, a long, elongated rug on the floor and beautiful lighting effect which gives the feeling of being welcome the moment you enter the apartment.The Nice Beach is just across the street where one can enjoy an early morning swim and then have a delicious lunch on the beach right in front of the apartment or to many other restaurants along the way.

The master bedroom overlooking the sea has an Italian wrought-iron king size bed with an adjoining bathroom furnished with a Villeroy & Boch bathtub, toilet , bidet and lavabo. It has a bay window with automatic shutters, a sitting area, also equipped with HDTV/DVD/VCR and CD equipment for your enjoyment. The second bedroom with a courtyard view has a queen size bed, a CD player, HDTV for movie viewing, it has its own shower, bidet and lavabo. Between the 2 bedrooms there is a guest toilet. The kitchen is modern and fully-equipped including fine bone china breakfast and dinner sets, coffee machine, electric wok, juicer and integrated washer/dryer machines.

It is walking distance to the city centre, surrounded with restaurants, bakeries, specialty stores, bike rentals and a supermarket less than a minute away on the side street of the building. It is close to the Musee Massena, 5-star hotels, 2 casinos and some buzzling night spots and boutiques of famous brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Longchamp and Cartier to name a few. There is ample street parking on the side street of the building and around the area.

One can also enjoy a leisurely walk to the famous Flower Market where fresh flowers, vegetables, fish and provençal specialties are sold every day and antiquities once a week. At noon the flower market is converted to small restaurants where you can enjoy Nice specialities and seafood dishes. Visiting Old Nice is always a treat-finding old churches, quaint streets full of interesting stores and food stalls.

Public transportation is accessible for travel to Villefranche sur Mer, Monaco, Eze, Cannes, Antibes, St. Paul de Vence, Grasse and as far as Aix-en-Provence. The airport bus stops right in front of the apartment. The train station is also a 15-minute walk.

Nice is a city full of sports and cultural activities all year round like the marathon in January, Carnival in February, Paris-Nice Bike Race in March, Iron Man in June, Jazz and Classical Festivals during the summer, Nice Triathlon in September,concerts and famous museums to visit like Matisse, Picasso and Chagall, to say the least. One can also attend the Cannes Film Festival, Monaco Grand Prix, the Lemon and Orange Festival in Menton while vacationing in Nice.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Maria,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. We are home now after a wonderful trip. We really enjoyed your home. The view was fantastic. It was also nice to listen to the waves at night. There were restaurants left and right and everything that we wanted to do was either walking distance from the apartment or else the bus was just around the corner.

The appliances helped us a lot and thanks for the new refrigerator. Instructions were easy and your housekeeper explained everything clearly.

Thanks again for sharing it with us.

Excellent, spacious, comfortable, great location!

  • 5 of 5
Maria's apartment was exactly as described and better. Lots of room for our family with 3 teenagers to spread out and be comfortable. The apartment was very clean and everything was in working order including the a/c. My favorite was the balcony with its great views of the sea, the beach and the boardwalk. Great location across the street from the beach, 1 minute walk to the grocery store and lots of great restaurants and shopping within minutes. Great base for exploring Nice and the rest of the Riviera. Excellent! Merci Maria.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5
We recently travelled to Nice for a graduation celebration with our two daughters aged 17 and 21. Maria's apartment turned out to be a perfect base for our exploration of the area and surrounding town. Truthfully I picked this apartment above all others based on the reviews others had made. They had described a very comfortable apartment, which was nicely decorated and in a choice location. The reviews were accurate. Everything worked! The temperature was perfect as the A/C worked perfectly, and we were able to use our WiFi which was important as I had work to complete while there. The view is spectacular. We ate few meals in the apartment as there are so many good restaurants to choose from, but having breakfast at the apartment was perfect. The market (which had anything we could want or need for meals) was very close. Maria had carefully described local bus stops and train stations and how to get to various places and that was very helpful. We likely ate at each of the restaurants she mentioned; most were excellent although the one on the beach just in front of the apartment (Hy-Beach) was not to the standards of the rest. The bottom line is that it was way better to have a base in Nice and travel to various places by day and return at night rather than relocate all the time and drag around suitcases. This was a perfect spot for us. Our two children were also very impressed by Maria's apartment and were not wanting to leave.
Oh and I fed the geraniums on the porch religiously and they were very happy and healthy. I love all the flowers on all the decks and buildings in Nice and I was glad to contribute in my small way.

Everything you ever need

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time renting an apartment overseas. We normally opt for hotels, but we were traveling with 3 teenagers and needed the space and amenities that this fantastic apartment provided.
As other reviewers have posted, the location is picturesque, right on the promenade- steps from the beach, steps from the supermarket, steps from many different types of restaurants, and right in front of the bus stop.
The apartment itself has absolutely everything you would ever need for your vacation- a fully functioning kitchen complete with full-sizer washer/ dryer, dishwasher, refrigerator, oven and stove. There were plenty of towels (bath and beach) which many apartments charge extra for. We did not rent beach chairs as there were beach mats and an umbrella in the apartment for our use.
Maria, the owner, went above and beyond and was exceptionally kind. She met us at the apartment and explained in great detail all the workings of the apartment. Midway through our vacation, we needed medical help. She recommended her family physician and even walked us to the appointment, something that put our minds at ease (going to the doctor in a foreign country is a bit intimidating) and something that she certainly did not have to do.
I would highly recommend this apartment. Thanks, Maria, for opening your home to us.

Luxury, Hospitality and Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5
My wife and two sons, ages 21 &16, recently vacationed in France for the first time. Maria's apartment was the perfect start of our adventure. The views of the Mediterranean are spectacular from the balcony. The beach is directly across the street. The location is perfect for sightseeing, shopping, and traveling without a car. The public buses can take you to many locations including Monaco, Cannes, St. Paul de Venice and Maria has all the bus schedules readily available!
The apartment is so full of amenities. The fully stocked kitchen comes with complimentary wine, coffee, and snacks. The washer/dryer were easy to use and detergent is provided. The bathrooms have so many towels, we never ran out! There are also beach towels provided. The showers were fantastic, spacious and very clean, with plenty of paper products for our stay. The beds were very comfortable, very spacious, and the air conditioners worked beautifully.
There are so many extras included such as movies, cd's, games, books, and the player piano was a wonderful surprise.
Maria has really thought of it all. We felt at home and her hospitality was superb. She met us upon our arrival, visited the night before our departure, was available throughout our stay to answer any questions and has kept in touch to make sure the rest of our vacation was a wonderful experience.
We hope to visit France again in our travels and Maria's apartment will be a favorite stop on our journeys. We have beautiful family memories of our vacation. Thank you Maria!

It doesn't get any better.....

It doesn't get any better.....

My wife and I recently returned from a delightful 2 1/2 week vacation in Switzerland and France, capped off with a wonderful week at Maria's apartment in Nice. This was our third time in Nice and we have always stayed in apartments as opposed to hotels. Maria's apartment is without a doubt the best that we have come across. The location is perfect, the view is spectacular, the beach is across the street, and Maria's hospitality is unmatched. When we arrived, there were snacks on the counter as well as wine in the fridge. We were told to help ourselves to any of the food, and just make ourselves at home. The apartment has been very well maintained and is decorated very nicely. We had a car, so parking was important since street parking in Nice is almost impossible to find. The nearest parking garage is just 4 blocks away, and they offer a weekly ticket which allows you to come and go anytime. The pedestrian center of Nice, with many restaurants and shops, is just a ten minute walk down Rue de France, but there are also several good restaurants within a block of the apartment. All in all, we found our week in Maria's apartment to be a very relaxing end to a wonderful vacation. Thank you Maria for your hospitality. We hope to return soon.

Delightful.

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our second time in this apartment & it was a most enjoyable experience again. The apartment is exactly as seen in the photos but really the location needs to be seen to be appreciated. It is a spacious apartment with stunning views of the bay,just across from the sea & so many amenities nearby for grocery shopping & eating. The bus stops just outside the door to get to the airport & to Cannes, Antibes & St. Paul de Vence. It is about a 20 minute walk to the main train station too. The apartment is well located too for walking to main sites such as the Old Town etc.
All of the fittings, wifi, T.V & especially the coffee machine are a joy to use. I can also recommend the bed linen & the showers!We hope to return next year. Maria was always very quick to reply to emails & Marie is very helpful too.
