Delightful, Bright Studio Apartment With Balcony

Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
Apartment in Nice, Alpes Maritimes, Provence-Alpes-Cote DAzur, France - Perfect Location Within Easy Reach Of The Promenade Des Anglais And Train Station

The location of this lovely, comfortable studio with its bright, open aspect and roomy balcony couldn't be better. On one side of the well-maintained building, there's an entrance through peaceful gardens that leads directly to the Promenade des Anglais. You could pop out for a morning swim or run before coming home for breakfast on the balcony! On the other side, a second entrance leads to the popular rue de France, with plenty of restaurants, shops, cafes and bars. The train station is a 10-15 minute walk away, offering easy access to coastal towns along the Riviera, and Monaco. There are also several bus stops nearby for routes that can take you to Grasse, Cannes, Menton, Vence and other beautiful towns and villages. The studio itself is bright and quiet, on the second floor (with lift) of a building set in gardens away from the bustle of the Promenade des Anglais. The good quality, Italian-made sofabed pulls out with one tug into a proper double bed. You can see the sea from the balcony, which has a table and two solid wooden armchairs with cushions. There's also a parking garage within view, but it's neither big nor noisy, so it's easy to forget. Thanks to this studio's ideal location and practical set-up, you could spend the day here pottering comfortably, or you could be off exploring - or both! The kitchen is equipped with all the basics for holiday cooking, and there's wi-fi, and a TV with DVD player and some DVDs.

About the Owner

My husband is from Nice, but after 30 years of living in London, he's sort of a Frenchman with an English accent, and I'm a Londoner with a slightly American accent. We talked about moving to Nice for more than 20 years, but the opportunity didn't arise until two years ago, when Joel went into business with his sister here. We miss London, but waking up to blue, blue sky nearly every day makes us happy. We know it makes other people happy, too - which is why we decided to buy this studio apartment with its lovely balcony and share it with our friends - and with others, too. I've been exploring Nice and the Cote d'Azur ever since we arrived, and I really believe it's one of the most magical places in the world!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for our short stay in Nice. 5 mins from the beach and about 10 mins walk to the old town. The studio was just as described, and was clean and bright. There are some lovely shops nearby for your morning bread and pastry to enjoy on the delightful balcony. Definitely worth a visit.

Great stay in Nice

  • 5 of 5

This apartment met all our needs for a place to stay while on holiday in Nice. All the facilities we required were present, well maintained and clean. In fact the whole block is well maintained. A change of bed linen and towels was made at the end of our first week.

The apartment is located no more than 5 minutes walk from the beach while also being within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants.

I should also say that the owner is extremely friendly and helpful giving us lots of advice on where to go and what to see in Nice.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a lovely stay at this studio in Nice. Ideal location and loads of restaurants shops and bars near by. The studio is fully equipped and we enjoyed breakfast on the balcony most mornings.

All in all had a lovely time and hope to return :)

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Location: difficult to improve on this. The promenade is in view and you're on the beach in less than 5 minutes. Garden greenery between the studio balcony and the promenade. Balcony gets plenty of sun. And for such a location it's relatively quiet. Easy to fall asleep, both at night and in afternoon siestas!

Equipment: the studio has everything needed. Wifi is constant and reliable. Lighting is bright.

Atmosphere: you feel very much in the heart of things. One recommendation: the Barracuda restaurant on rue Meyerbeer (literally just round the corner) has an excellent 3 course set lunch for €18 - starter, fish or meat course, café gourmand and glass of wine (or beer or soft drink) included.

Owner: Suellen keeps in touch after booking and is most helpful.

I hope to return ASAP!

Wonderful location, great value, friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at this property! Just 1/2 block from the promenade, right in the midst of restaurants and boulangeries. Great for strolling or exploring. As indicated by the pictures, balcony was a wonderful spot to have morning coffee, with pain au chocolate from either bakery just down the street. Short stroll to the old town and the weekly outdoor market. Suellen was a pleasure to deal with, and was quick to respond to any requests. We would highly recommend for singles or couples.

The studio in Nice is a spendid base for a couple

  • 5 of 5

This studio is most comfortable hand has all the facilities a couple would require to explore Nice. It is a few minutes from the beach and the famous Promenade des Anglais and the magnificent balcony has great sea views yet is at a sufficient distance from the road to be quite tranquil. It is within walking distance of both the old and new parts of the city. Suellen the owner was extremely helpful and the studio immaculately clean and tidy. We will most definately be returning! Than you Suellen!

Location, location, location! This studio offers everything that makes Nice such a wonderful place to be: go out one door and you can be at the beach within moments, go out the other and you've got a great French city full of restaurants, shops, markets on the other. Within an easy walk of the train station, too, means you can discover the Riviera on day trips... all ending with a peaceful aperitif on the balcony.

Facilities

From the Owner

When you're on the balcony at this pretty studio, just look to your right: you'll see the Negresco hotel, where guests will be paying ten times as much as you are! Ok, ok, it's not exactly the same, and you can see a garage as well as the sea, but it would be hard work to find such a perfect, peaceful, comfortable location in Nice at this price!
