About the property

Luxury Penthouse Apartments

The Ciel Bleu Buffa apartments occupy the whole of the top floor of a beautiful building in the exclusive Carre d’Or (Golden Square) area of Nice.

The location is superb being just 100 metres from the sea and within a short walk of all the main tourist sites. Additionally there are countless fantastic restaurants and cafes on the doorstep and the train station is less than 10 minutes walk.

There is a 55 square metre 1 bedroom apartment and a 60 square metre 2 bedroom apartment. Also, uniquely, there are sound proofed double doors between the two apartments meaning for larger groups they can be opened to provide 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

Therefore the apartments can provide accommodation for group sizes from one to seven people.

Both apartments have access to the full wrap-around balcony.

The accommodation comprises of the following:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Buffa 1 (55sqm one bedroom apartment):

Comfortable living room with a large L-shaped sofa, flat screen TV with Apple TV and Netflix and high speed unlimited Fibre Optic Wi-Fi broadband (>80MB).

Separate kitchen with oven, hob, washing machine and dishwasher and dining table seating 4.

Large double bedroom with King Size double bed (160x200) and large chest of drawers.

Shower room with huge walk-in rain shower and limestone tiles throughout as well as a separate WC with sink.

Additionally the apartment has full reversible air-conditioning, parquet floors and double-glazing throughout.

Every room in the apartment has access to the full "wrap around" balcony. With full-length patio doors and high ceilings in each room the light is fantastic as are the far-reaching rooftop and mountain views.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Buffa 2 (60sqm two bedroom apartment):

Large open plan living area with a comfortable sofa and armchair, flat screen TV with Apple TV and Netflix and high speed unlimited Fibre Optic Wi-Fi broadband (>80MB).

Kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and dining- table seating 4.

Large double bedroom with a King Size double bed (160x200) and large fitted wardrobe. Twin bedroom with 2 single beds (90x190).

Shower room with walk-in rain shower and luxurious limestone tiles.

Additionally the apartment has full reversible air-conditioning, parquet floors and double-glazing throughout.

The living room has access to the balcony. With full-length patio doors and high ceilings in each room the light is fantastic as are the far-reaching rooftop and mountain views.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The adjoining doors between the 2 apartments are between the living rooms in the centre. This means that both of the living rooms and kitchens are in the middle with bedrooms and bathrooms at either end. This works very well for large groups who want to be together but still maintain a certain amount of privacy.

Please note that the apartments are situated on the 5th floor of the building and there isn’t a lift. The stairs are wide and not at all steep and there is a banister. We think it is well worth the walk but we do appreciate that apartments may be unsuitable for some guests needing easy access.

Note that our apartment manager meets all guests on arrival and can help with taking luggage up the stairs if needed.

About Mike

Ciel Bleu Nice is a small family run business owning 5 luxury apartments in Nice.

We have 4 apartments in the best streets in the Carre d'Or and a 5th apartment on Rue de La Prefecture in the old town. We specialise in large family apartments.

We strive to make our properties the highest quality holiday rental accommodation on the Cote d'Azur.

Mike purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Mike chose Nice

The apartments on Rue de La Buffa have been recently renovated.

The apartments are situated less than 100 metres from the sea in the exclusive Carre d'Or area. The location provides the perfect compromise between being in the thick of the action and also being in a relatively quiet residential building.

As well as the highest quality fixtures and fittings the thing that really makes these apartments stand out is the fantastic roof-top and mountain views.

All the rooms have full length patio doors which makes the light absolutely fantastic.

There is also a wrap around balcony running the full length of both apartments which provides the vital outdoor space for relaxing.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Central, well-maintained, clean and cosy apartment. Excellent service. No elevator, which is a good thing for most of us. I would recommend it to anyone.

Great appartment just a stones throw away from the sea front.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely appartment, clean and tidy and had everything we needed to enjoy our week in Nice. Mike provided us with all the information we required to make our stay comfortable. It was a nice bonus to have Netflix on the tv, not that we stayed in much as there was so much to see and do, but at the end of a long day it was nice to settle down with a film.

It's worth noting that the appt is on the 5th floor and does not have a lift, this was not a problem for us but may not be suitable for some. The bonus for been this high though means that you have the balcony to sit on and enjoy watching the world go by.

We did day trips to both Monaco and Cannes, we went on the bus going and came back on the train. Although the bus fare is only €1.50 the journey to Cannes took 1hour 40 mins and was not a particularly interesting so would recommend the train both ways as this was a much nicer journey, hugging the coastline for some lovely views.

We would not hesitate in recommending this accomodation and would stay here again if we came back to Nice.Thanks for a lovely time Mike.

Amazing apartment

  • 5 of 5

Mike was incredibly helpful from start to finish, answering any queries we had over email almost immediately and by helping us greatly with letting us check in early and check out late.

The villa is identical to the pictures, super spacious (much larger than our flat in London) and furnished beautifully throughout. The balcony is lovely also, we enjoyed many drinks watching the sunset on there.

We traveled around the South of France by train which was really easy and I would defiantly recommend (it was only a 10 min walk from the apartment). We visited Monaco, Cannes and Juan Les Pins all via public transport.

The only negative is the 5 flights of stairs you need to climb to get to the property, but after the copious amounts of bread and cheese the exercise came in good use for us.

Overall I cannot rate the apartment any higher and we will be returning as soon as we can.

Very pleased with everything!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 5-night stay at the apartment! The weather was perfect and the location couldn't have been better. We were very pleased with all the necessities that the apartment provided us with. Everything went well for the two of us and we had a blast from the beginning until the end. Although we had to walk up the stairs every day a couple of times, it didn't bother us and it felt even better to get back to the apartment after the "workout" up the stairs :) Thank you very much and I'm sure we will be back soon again!

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here over the New Year period. The apartment is very comfortable, spacious and well appointed. It is in arguably the best area of Nice - close to the beach and the Old Town, good restaurants and lovely quaint streets. The apartment has enough old world charm to be aesthetically pleasing, while also having all the modern amenities. The bathroom is large with a spacious shower and plenty of hot water - rarities in French apartments. We are a couple in our 50s who enjoyed the fitness aspect of climbing the 5 flights of stairs. Some may find this a bit daunting.
