About the property

Designer apartment, penthouse, 5 minutes walk from the sea and the old town

An architect apartment, south facing, elegant, clear and structured by glass walls that draw a clear and arty universe superlatively staff. A version in white and deep black powder that oppose transparency games stimulated by glass walls which meet anthracite walls. A long corridor leads 180 square meters of balance and refinement open on rooms and bathroom and the kitchen. A restructuring of space, crackling energy, revealing a toned world where rare items and photographs collections nestle themselves.

Under the gold suspensions into hemispheres of Catellani & Smith, the kitchen clear and rational "B1" Bulthaup, had to express a form of benevolent neutrality. This is where we juggles alimentset that organizes dinners on the big white table Piero Lissoni. Punctuated discrete arty touches with a "YES" frank Sandra Lecoq and inclusions "Paint Box" and "art Caran."

The amateur spirit cabinet snaking from room to room invests the large living room where elegant silhouette of a grand piano is cut. While the expressive photographs of Anthony Mirial explore human nature and meet echoing the daily ranges. forms of games and subtle balance around a classical fireplace with a dreamlike installation Cynthia Lemesle & Jean-Philippe Roubaud, armchairs "Utrecht" Rietveld and a sofa Cassina signed.

In the rooms open on a large dressing room B & B Italia, the design icons natural place. Inspired by Pop Art and stressing the preference of Gaetano Pesce for anthropomorphic forms, exuberant chairs "UP5" & "UP6" extend into the dressing room by the seat sculpture "Seven Up" shaped oversize walk also Gaetano Pesce. Opposite the bed, bunk tables Pascal Goujon and Antoine Aguilar subtly sidestep the eternal quarrel between abstraction and figuration.

Designed by Design Loft, a bathroom with clear lines where the shower and bath spaces are separated by a glass wall. Bath island and twin basins with base towel "Starck X". Version sixties, around the double mirror "Wedge," a lamp "Stilnovo" sheet and "Panton chair".

It's a little world inhabited and sensitive, which by successive touches, invests the space and draws an intuitive scenography.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is a real bridge between the district of Notre Dame and Nice's old town. The Place Wilson is here with its magnificent post office building dating from 1888, as well as the peaceful Square Durandy in front of the public library. The buildings are in Art Deco, bourgeois and Niçois style, and also include some recent builds. It is the perfect area for those who love Nice and everything is in walking distance. It is Nice's most central district and very quiet. Shops are nearby, the beach and the famous Cours Saleya are 5 minutes away, and the apartment is only 100 metres from the Coulée verte, a 12-hectare greenway running right through the centre of Nice.

From airport: 10 mins by taxi, about 35 euros. Bus 98 is every 30 mins from airport to center of Nice, it is about 25 mins and 6 euros per person.

From train station: 5 mins by taxi, about 8 euros. 15 mins by foot.

Tramway is 8 mins, and 1,5 euros per person.

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family in Alexandre's apartment for 5 days, it totally made our experience in Nice much better! The place is an art gallery, really beautifully decorated by him! The apartment is wide, comfortable and really charming, the atmosphere is great. The place is also incredibly located, it's just a short walk from the Old Town, the beach and the best neighborhoods. Every night we went to have dinner in the Old Town walking, it was perfect. But it can get better, Alexandre really knows the city of Nice and all the region o Côte d'Azur, he has even written a city guide of Nice with really amazing tips for restaurants, beaches, places to shop, attractions, and during our stay he helped us with many issues and gave us crucial tips for us to have a great time! I couldn't recommend more staying at his place, if you do so, there is no doubt you're gonna love it.

PERFECT in every way !

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic experience staying in this HomeAway property, from start to finish! We were two couples who stayed here in late June 2016 for 5 nights. Before our trip, Alexandre was very helpful with providing information about Nice and helping to plan our trip (definitely take his recommendations, if you are able to receive them). Once we arrived, it was a pleasure to meet him. The home is beautiful – in pristine condition, clean, renovated, modern, fully equipped with anything you need, and in a perfect location. The grocery store is 50 meters away, and the beach, old town, museum, restaurants, etc. are all within 5-10 minutes walking. The unit is also a penthouse with a stunning wrap-around balcony and gorgeous views.

This was a 5 star experience, right in the heart of Nice and the French Cote d’Azur. Definitely recommend staying here to everyone.

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in this apartment for 4 nights. It is a truly amazing place. The photographs do not capture how beautiful it is. The space is vast and extremely elegant with a very well equipped kitchen and stunning bathroom. The beds are very comfortable which is an essential element for me.The location is ideal for enjoying all aspects of Nice. But I must admit I lingered in the apartment for longer than I would normally enjoying it's beauty and uniqueness.

Alexandre and his penthouse are AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse is beautiful and very accurate to the pictures/descriptions that were posted to the website. Everything was well maintained and a housekeeper even came in daily to tidy up. Alexandre is very welcoming and even booked our restaurant and beach reservations. He can answer all your questions about the area since he writes NICE Code, which is the main travel guide in Nice! Really cool guy and has the most unique apartment I've ever seen!!

Nous connaissions déjà ce superbe appartement en y étant déjà allé l'année dernière...

encore une fois absolument aucun soucis cet appartement est idéalement situé au coeur de Nice (sans être trop dans proche des quartiers trop bruyants et pleins de touristes...) il règne une atmosphère très agréable et un calme absolu, c'est parfait.

les 5 étoiles sont justifiées et méritées, tout est impeccable, chaque détail de l'appartement est soigné et décoré avec gout,

le propriétaire est vraiment très sympa (la femme de ménage aussi d'ailleurs...), toujours joignable en cas de besoin et en même temps totalement discret...

cet appartement est sans aucun doute notre résidence a Nice a chaque fois que nous irons avec plaisir.

Nous avons passé le long weekend du 14 juillet 2015 et le moins que l'on puisse dire c'est que nous sommes totalement satisfait de notre séjour dans cet appartement spacieux (180 m² avec 2 grandes chambres) luxueux et aux prestations haut de gamme, entièrement remis a neuf avec beaucoup gout et de qualité dans les moindres finitions... climatisé et en dernier étage avec ascenseur d'un immeuble de standing avec cachet (datant de 1900) et dégageant énormément de charme et de ..."classe"...

idéalement placé au cœur du vieux Nice, donnant sur une place (Wilson) donc vue dégagée et extra calme, proche de tout.

A quelques minutes a pied de la promenade des anglais et de la mer, du Negresco, de la place Massena et du cours Saleya, n'avons pas eu besoin de prendre la voiture du tout pour profiter de Nice et de tout ce qu'il y a, a voir et a faire.

tout a été complètement parfait et au delà de nos attentes et de nos espérances...

Propriétaire très sympathique et disponible et très attentif au moindre de nos besoins...même la femme de ménage (Sandra...) était très efficace tout en étant très discrète...

bref absolument rien a dire lors de notre séjour, a recommander vivement et sans aucun soucis, n’hésiterons pas du tout a revenir dans cet appartement lors de nos prochain séjours a Nice, car même le rapport qualité /prix est excellent vu les prestations offertes.

en un mot....aucun soucis, juste parfait.
