Our huge 102m2 (1,100 sq ft) apartment in the historic port of Nice is south-facing, quiet and beautiful, yet minutes from several beaches, Old Town, tram, airport bus and train. Our top floor duplex apartment was completely renovated in 2014. It has art on the walls, great music on the iPod, plus travel apps and classic French movies on our iPad. Not forgetting three divine wooden beds with fine linen, a library of books, and every cook book known to man.
But as the apartment building dates from the 1850s (the building was once an olive oil distribution depot) heaps of antique charm remain. There are two big bedrooms with double beds; the first is really romantic and has a €3,000 Habitat mattress, antique lights and three metre high ceilings. The second bedroom is larger and boasts an antique double bed with €2,500 Tempurpedic mattress, plus a library of guidebooks, history books and an iPad 3. The third is on a separate floor and is also sublime and south-facing, with a new €2,500 mattress.
The living room opens on to the fantastically well equipped kitchen. We have a 1930s wooden table for six, Roche Bobois sofa and fireplace. More photos are available on request, just email us for more details!

I am a British travel journalist based in Nice, France. I own this lovely apartment with my American wife, Kathryn. As we write for Condé Nast Traveler, National Geographic, The Sunday Times and several other travel magazines, we'd be happy to recommend a heap of charming restaurants and great beaches across the South of France.
Tristan Rutherford purchased this apartment in 2006
Mainly the sun! It's completely south-facing with sun from dawn until dusk pouring in. And as it's on a courtyard it's totally quiet at night, despite being in the dead centre of Nice. The location is also amazing, with an award-winning boulangerie on the corner, 100 antique stores on the same block, and the Old Town, beach and scores of restaurants within a five-minute stroll.
We purchased an iPad in 2012 for our guests to use. It is pre-loaded with some great French movies, travel apps, video games and lots of cool links. We love playing with it, and hope you do too! The fireplace is unique and very cozy in winter, as is the library, cook books, kitchen and dining table for six. We love entertaining, eating and drinking and expect that our guests will too. What's totally unique is the peace and quiet at night, very rare in Nice, plus the personal, French, traditional and very chic decoration that makes it so special. Our final renovation in 2014 turning our much-loved apartment into three bedroom duplex. There is so much space it's untrue!
