Overview

About the property

Elegantly proportioned spacious apartment, 2 en-suite bedrooms close to beach

In 1878 the villa Kotschoubey was built as a summer palace for a Ukrainian princess on Baumettes (Villa is now the Musée des Beaux Arts , "Jules Cheret") and in 1950 the classic French Résidence des Baumettes was built in the palace gardens.

Baumettes is the best location in Nice. Baumettes is the only quiet green residential area in Nice close to the prom and city centre. It's well lit and safe, with excellent local shops and facilities, yet has retained its charm, with villas, castles , bijou hotels, and stately buildings.

The generous living room has a sheltered south balcony overlooking gardens with sculptures and citrus, magnolia and mimosa trees. Sunlight pours in from 2 balconies and you can relax on the huge sofa, chairs, TV with Satellite and wi-fi. The dining area is at the far end and has a balcony overlooking date palms. The separate kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need from a coffee machine, dishwasher, cooking utilities, pots and pans, spices and oils, a big fridge, dishes and cutlery; so you really can make yourself at home.

The master bedroom has a super king-size bed, a balcony which is bathed in the morning sun for breakfast, and an en-suite bathroom with shower and WC. The second bedroom is spacious, equipped with two single beds, and en-suite shower and WC. There’s a third extra WC.

Best and last, you’ll have to force yourself to leave the apartment once you have sat in the shade on the lounge balcony. It’s secluded and is perfect for dining, enjoy a cool drink and getting into the Holiday spirit!

We always walk along the prom to the harbour, old town/ and city centre, but there's a bus “ Résidence des Baumettes” which stops right outside and goes to the city centre.

About Chris Gilbert

I rented a property in Nice for 2 years to take time to buy the best property. There is nowhere in Nice as discreet, green and calm that is close to beach and centre, and has such easy access. I bought it in 2009 and haven't yet seen anywhere better! This is my home, to retire to after working in NHS in London

Chris Gilbert purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Chris Gilbert chose Nice

It's my home, I love it. Peaceful, discreet apartment in quiet residential area and close to all amenities. 500m from prom,There's a small bus stop adjacent.

What makes this apartment unique

THis is a classic French apartment, in the only green and quiet residential area close to the prom, old town and city centre. It is well lit, safe. It overlooks palm trees, oranges and bougainvillia.

A touch of class in a lovely residential area of Nice.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in a comfortable clean apartment. Really enjoyed breakfast on the balcony. It is very close to the sea and it is a twenty minute walk to the old town along the beautiful promenade des anglais although when the new tram line opens before too long this journey will be within minutes. There are plenty of amenities close by and we will definitely be returning.

Enjoy the space and access to Nice

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment for a stay in Nice. Within 30 minutes walking to most places in Nices yet in a quiet residential neighbourhood. The building and apartment are very French. The apartment is large with lots of space, we had 4 adults and did not feel in each other's way at all. Make full use of the balconies, especially in the evenings.

The apartment was nicely presented and we were welcomed by the local manager with some treats. When we come back to Nice we know where we will be staying....

gut ausgestattet, großzügig, viel Platz , toller Blick vom Balkon

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Allerdings liegt die Wohnung an der Peripherie des Zentrums und deshalb sind Abstecher in die Stadt stets mit einem halbstündigen Spaziergang verbunden oder mit einer Busfahrt. Die Busse fahren aber nicht nach 20.00 Uhr zurück. Dann heißt es nach einem abendlichen Menu in der quirligen Altstadt zu Fuß zurück oder per Taxi.

Der Inhaber ist sehr freundlich und bei allen Problemen sofort ansprechbar und hilfreich. Wer einen Leihwagen hat, dem kann ich die Wohnung uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Stilvolle Unterkunft in toller Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Die Unterkunft hat schon ein paar Jahre auf dem Buckel, aber sie hat einfach Stil und Atmosphäre. Die Umgebung und auch die Aussicht vom Balkon ist sehr schön. Die junge Dame, die die Schlüssel übergeben hat und vermutlich auch die Endreinigung gemacht hat, war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

There a video from 5 years ago on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awWF2vsr-64 It’s rather long, and the interior decor is better nowadays, but otherwise is accurate.
