NICE PEBBLES: WINDSOR - CONTEMPORARY APARTMENT NEAR PEDESTRIAN ZONE

Carre d'Or Apartment Rental Photos and Description

This contemporary apartment blends cool minimal design and modern comforts

This contemporary holiday rental apartment blends cool minimal design and modern comforts and conveniences. On the edge of the chic Carre D'Or, you are just minutes from the beach and the hub of the Pedestrian Zone. The apartment is on the 5th floor in a well-maintained building This holiday rental apartment is just off the Carré d’Or quarter (Pedestrian Zone). Set back from the main street of Rue de la Buffa, it benefits from being a little quieter than most main street apartments. The living area and kitchen are open plan. There is a large black upholstered corner sofa, a designer leather chair, several console units and a large rug. A side table cleverly extends to a dining table for four (shown extended on one photo). Entertainment is provided from a 40' LCD TV and DVD player. There is an air conditioning unit on the wall.

Carre d’Or area of Nice: The name says it all: Carré d'Or translates as Golden Square. The elegance and the proximity to the Promenade attract thousands of tourists to this up-market area of Nice’s city centre. This area rivals the Old Town for the most sought after location for holiday rentals. The area includes the Zone Piétonne (the long Pedestrian street called Rue Masséna set between Place Masséna and Rue de France), Boulevard Victor Hugo and the roads in between including Marechal Joffre, Rue de la Buffa and Alphonse Karr.

If you’re a keen shopper or prefer a more sanitized area than Vieux Nice or Nice Etoile, this is the place for you. Shoppers can easily spend a whole day in the twenty or so up-market chains or designer boutiques or in the more bargain boutiques that line Rue Massena. The streets are cleaner, wider and the buildings, shops and restaurants are grander, more opulent but have a little less character than their Vieux Nice brothers.

The Carre d’Or apartments are snapped up by affluent purchasers who do not mind paying a premium. Consequently the buildings are generally well looked after. You can expect better common parts than most other areas and the majority of apartment buildings will have lifts and air-conditioning. There are many restaurants aligning the pedestrian zone, although most are mediocre relying on shoppers being weary rather than serving great food. Two exceptions, in our view, are the well respected seafood restaurant Boccacio and the pretty Le Maison de Marie which is hidden behind a red arch leading to bougainvillea lined courtyard. There are also plenty of bars and cafes with pavement terraces, LOVE being one of our favourites for gorgeous hot chocolates in the day and great terrace ambience and cocktails in the early evening.

If you have an appetite for designer fashion , then head to Rue de la Liberté, just off Place Magenta. For the truly affluent, head for Rue Paradis, Avenue de Suede, and Avenue de Verdun running parallel to Rue de la Liberté. This is Nice’s Rodeo Drive and where you will find the elites including Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Longchamp, Hermes and Cartier. Espace Harroch on Rue Paradis is deceptively big and spans four levels on Rue Paradis. As you might expect when there are big bucks involved, English is very widely spoken.

In the evening, there can be a magical atmosphere around the pedestrian zone with the human hustle and bustle combined with the many (and often talented) street artists. The shops stay open until after 7pm and are then replaced by street seller with their wares strewn out on blankets, jugglers, mime-statutes as you stroll out for early evening, sip drinks at the numerous terraces or wander home.

Glorious Pebbles apartment

  • Submitted: Apr 14, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2012
Last year we had a month in another Pebbles apartment, and sadly our 2 months in this Windsor apartment comes to an end. Many thanks to Rose, who met us from a much delayed Paris train, and was always there is we needed anything! What a glorious city this is, and shall continue to visit. If time permits, bus to Menton and to Cannes – an unbelievable €1.50! Ventimiglia Old Town on the hill is worth the climb. Friday there is a huge street market also worth a visit. To all at Nice Pebbles many thanks and hope to be back next February

Professional service throughout the whole stay

  • Submitted: Apr 14, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
Excellent stay. Thoroughly professional service throughout the whole stay. The welcome basket was a really nice touch and much appreciated after a gruelling six hour car journey. The cleanliness and luxury standard of the apartment really impressed us. Also, the little homely touches, like the English speaking DVDs and books really helped us relax. Villefranche is only ten minutes on the bus and breathtaking. All in all we loved our stay, will be back and will be highly recommending Nice Pebbles to anyone who is considering a holiday here. Good work guys, keep up your excellent work

Perfect Apartment with Best Service

  • Submitted: Apr 14, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
After travelling Europe for six weeks, we really needed to take it easy before we headed back home to Australia. We could not have chosen better than this apartment. It was perfect. A special thank you to our guide, Marie, she was lovely, explained everything, gave us good suggestions, and when we had a small glitch with the heater, Marie was on to it. This kind of structure and attention to detail makes a good holiday. Our apartment was the best we stayed in while in Europe. It was well-designed and had nice little touches. All in all the Pebbles group are on to a winning approach.

Further into the Carre D'Or area, running along streets behind the Promenade des Anglais is the area we call Carre D'Or West. This area is perfect for its proximity to the beach, without the potential for noise like there is on the Promenade des Anglais. For our guests seeking out proximity to the beach along with modern amenities and decent outside space, this is the area for you.
