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.

                                                          Exceptional find in quality and aesthetics among holiday rentals at a fantastic location

                                                          Tamas A.Budapest

                                                          This home is a rare find of holiday rentals. The impeccable quality of generous space, artful design and super premium quality of functionalities made our family stay an outstanding experience. The location is fantastic, 5 minutes from everything.

                                                          The living room is spacious, furnished with high quality seating and sofa that provide great comfort. The TV and the sound system are of super excellent quality, we also enjoyed the fantastic range of art books and magazines placed around. We found the bedrooms very comfortable both in terms of space and bedding. There is loads of storage space in a walk-in closet. The bathroom is a treat itself with natural light and generous space. We enjoyed preparing fresh food in the kitchen that is absolutely fantastic in every aspect. It has everything one could think of and all that comes in super quality.

                                                          On top of the home itself, Alexandre provided some other excellent and flawless services. Daily housekeeping was included in the price as well as free parking right in front of the house. Also, he is a true local who knows everything about Nice and therefore has great advice on restaurants etc. He gave us some beautiful guide books about Nice (that he edited himself) right when we arrived that proved to be very useful. We enjoyed an absolute 5 star stay.

                                                          The location of this apartment is splendid, even it is in the heart of Nice. The building is very quiet and you can't hear any traffic noise. The apartment itself is tidy, spacious and practical. If you enjoy and appreciate all beautiful: art, lovely details and style, you love this apartment. This apartment is a big part of your whole holiday. Me and my group are expressing our thanks. Best regards, Helena

                                                          Beautiful home and top host!!

                                                          Andrew H.

                                                          Alexandre's apartment is on the top floor of a beautiful building with a wrap around deck overlooking a park with amazing views of Nice. It is a few steps to everywhere you could want to visit.

                                                          Alexandre provides the best knowledge about his city than any host I have had, as he writes beautiful guide books for Nice which he gifted to me and my friend (along with a bottle of champaigne upon arrival)! He got us reservations for the best restaurants in town, and even researched DJ & nightlife events for the few days we were there.

                                                          With a fantastic supermarket and bakery next door, we particulary enjoyed making breakfast and lunch and enjoying the mediterranean breeze blow through the entire house.

                                                          All the small details are impeccable!

                                                          Thank you Alexandre!

                                                          Just perfect Guest !! Thank you Andrew

                                                          Perfect place!

                                                          Eduardo B.

                                                          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 !

                                                          Natalie G.TORONTO

                                                          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.

                                                          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.
