The 2 roomed 80m2 apartment (56m2 interior + 24m2 terrace) is situated in the luxurious 'Le Paradise' building, looking directly over the swimming pool, palm trees and the Mediterranean Sea. It is well-appointed with a fully equipped kitchen (including washing machine and dishwasher) a guest toilet with sink, a lounge with lounge suite and fold-out sofa bed, two office spaces, an entertainment centre with 52' flat screen TV and surround sound equipment, a bedroom with a 2nd flat screen TV, a queen-sized bed, and an en suite bathroom complete with bathtub and separate shower. There is a high-speed WIFI Internet connection that is free of charge for limitless usage.
The apartment's best feature is undoubtedly the generously sized covered terrace with gorgeous views, complete with exterior bar, fridge, dining and seating facilities, including a fold-out sofa for those balmy summer nights. The south-facing nature of the apartment acts as a sun trap, and means that even throughout the winter, the terrace is habitable. The unobstructed view means that neighbouring buildings cannot look into the apartment, keeping privacy at an optimum. Occupants of the building have free access to the private pool out front.
Monaco is renowned for its security and the lowest crime rate in the world, allowing one to freely walk or travel with the bus anywhere in the Principality with total peace of mind. Most apartments that advertise with 'Monaco' in the title are only 'near' Monaco and not within the Principality itself, which makes a huge difference. The 'Le Paradise' building itself is in a pedestrian zone.
The residents with cars, park underneath the building accessed from next to the Columbus Hotel on Ave des Papalins.
The Hotel Columbus is close by (50 meters away) yet our apartment is over twice as spacious as a hotel suite, better equipped, and costs a fraction of the price, yet you can still benefit from the facilities like having breakfast (if you don’t feel like making it yourself) or beauty salon or spa treatments and massages (at very competitive rates vis-à-vis the rest of Monaco). The vicinity of the hotel also makes access to taxis very easy and convenient. A bus stop, which is part of the efficient Monaco public transport system is also within 50 meters of the hotel. Fontvieille is also home to the sports stadium, the circus, and a zoo, all within easy walking distance, but not so close that they can be heard from the apartment. A large branch of the supermarket chain Carrefour is also a short walking distance away. Outside the front door is a promenade along the sea front and harbor, with views over the yachts and the prince's palace and cathedral perched up on the cliffs. If one wants to lounge on the beach, snorkel or visit a beachside restaurant, Cap d'Ail beach is a mere 500 meters walk away.
Close to the apartment there are numerous bars and restaurants with plenty of nightlife choice all within short walking distance.
