Situated 5 minutes walk away from old downtown and the bus station, 10 from harbour and Nice-Etoile mall, and 20 from the train station and Nice beaches, the flat takes advantage from an exceptional location to discover the many assets of this tremendous city : from ligure castels up to aristocratic palaces from ' Belle Epoque ', the city has many atmospheres, pieces of nice architecture, colors and art that should delight the ones who are looking for romantism and refinement. The flat will surely delight every mind sensitive to the charm of Belle Epoque, thanks to the building architecture made of retondes, the distribution of its rooms, its exposition, and its beautiful view of the Nice Castle park and St François tower, despite the old stairs and the wild appearance of the garden !

  • 5 of 5

"This is a wonderfully characterful yet comfortable apartment in a stylish building with great views. We always enjoyed eating our meals in the main room, and found the kitchen well equipped. We found that the apartment keeps cool in hot weather, due to the nature of the building and as there is some breeze at that height. A great bakery and supermarket are close at hand. We enjoyed watching the baby doves in the palm tree close by. Nathalie was friendly. We'd love to return."

  • 5 of 5

"We truly enjoyed our stay at Villa Beau Site. There's charm to it - a lot of light and space, and beautiful views over the city from the lovely two balconies, where we enjoyed both our morning coffees and glasses of wine in the evening. The neighbourhood with its Belle Epoque villas is very attractive. The flat works well for a family of 4 - we stayed there with our two teenagers who also truly felt at home. The flat is at a short walking distance from the old town."

"The apartment was great, clean and well located. We had plenty of space and would certainly recommend it to others. The only problem was that hot water was only available in the mornings for showers, not in the afternoon/evening."

  • 5 of 5

A pure and romantic paradise in busy Nice in an old authentic building. We were overwelhmed by the hospitality of the owner, David. Furhtermore the small balcony is ideal for eating croissants in the morning and enjoying -nice- wines in the evening with a stunning view over Nice.

Fijn huis

  • 4 of 5

Heerlijke twee weken gehad in dit bovenhuis in Nice. De negen trappen hadden we er graag voor over. Beetje vergane glorie, maar zeer sfeervol. Geen luxe, maar alles is er. Twintig minuten lopen naar zee. Heerlijk park en winkels en musea dichtbij. Aanbevolen!
