I grew up in this apartment with my parents and 4 siblings. In 2011, I had the flat totally refurbished. I know the neighbourhood and Nice like the palm of my hand and can help you with all your needs.
The property is perfectly positioned, very airy and bright on the 5th floor of a 6 floor building.
It is right on the doorstep of Nice's reknowned vegetable and fish market, tramway and local shops as well as a very easy 15 minute walk to the Place Massena or a 5 minute run by tram.
Thanks to its North/South facing situation, this flat is sunny all year round with doors opening onto the long balcony on the South side. Even though the neighbourhood is always busy with lots of terraces, restaurants and open spaces just nearby, as it is on the fifth floor, the flat is quiet. Its 5th floor position allows for a continuous flow of air coming in from the south, this breeze is a great comfort on hot days which is why I have found that noisy air conditioning units are not necessary.
The front terrace or 'balcon' in french will allow for a table and a couple of chairs and sunbathing is possible as the sun shines through within the bedrooms during part of the afternoon. On very hot days the typical 'south of france' shutters can be closed, allowing air to flow while keeping the sunlight out if required.
The flat is very easy to maintain and clean due to its large size and open spaces purposely not over furnished for your extra comfort.
I personally know all of the owners of the other flats and they are all aware that my flat is rented out most of the year. Should you have a problem they are there to help with spare keys or advice. I also have a dedicated manager on hand should any problem arise and who will welcome you on arrival.
I am quite sure that your stay will be a very memorable one.
The apartment is perfectly situated in the town centre, at the heart of all main shops, buses and train stations. The daily market - closed on Monday - is a must. You will love to stroll amongst the vegetable, fruit, cheese, flower and fish stalls and have a morning coffee at one of the sunny terraces situated on the 'Place' and watch typical south of france life go by. The mornings, therefore, are busy with the market and the afternoons are quiet.
The unrestricted views from the rear are superb and the balcony allows for a small table and chairs where you can relax, al fresco on warm evenings. The master bedroom also has a table and chairs in front of the huge bay windows, which, when open, will give you this same al fresco feel with a beautiful romantic open view over the lower rooftops and hills in the distance.
