2 Bedroom apartment on the Harbour edge
Nice Côte d'Azur
|A second floor two bedroom flat, literally on the waters edge. Post card views and a short walk to the market, restaurants bars etc. Easy access to both rail and bus connections, and only a bus or taxi ride from the airport.|
The Kitchen is fitted in oak and includes, sink, oven, ceramic hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There is a table that can seat six and a floor to ceiling window overlooking the harbour.
The living room, is spacious and airy, has two sofas (the larger of which is a double sofa bed), and there are a couple of low tables and a wicker sun recliner. To complete the décor is an 18th century cupboard, a comptoise clock and original works of art. There is a large floor to ceiling double window again with views across the harbour and out to sea in one direction, or inland to the mountains.
The flat has full central heating, and double-glazing. It faces west (good sunsets and afternoon sun) and is the quietest place in central Nice directly on the waters edge. It's also a home, and has good quality cutlery, crockery, glassware and cooking equipment, (and plenty of everything!)
The coast traffic runs along the sea front at Nice, around the Chateau (opposite the flat) along the East side of the harbour and then straight on to Monte Carlo, only local traffic and some ferry traffic uses the road outside the flat on this side of the harbour.
The old town, with its daily market (wonderful) numerous bars and restaurants is reached by walking around the harbour and staying on the waters edge, or by walking around the back of the chateau along a street of antique shops to the back of the old town. Either way is about a 15-minute walk for somebody in average condition.

I chose Nice because of its
ease of access, for us in the east of England, we fly from Luton or Stanstead,
and either get the bus or a taxi to the flat. Both easy to arrange, (Full
details in our information pack). Travel by train is also easy with the
TGV to Marseilles and then onto Nice, Lastly the Autoroute runs from Calais
to Nice, and the journey can be done in one (albeit long) day.
We will be happy to offer advice on the finer details of travelling.
Situated on the Cote d’Azure,
Nice is the fifth largest city in France, and has many art galleries,
an opera house and museums. It prides itself on its extravagant festivals
and fetes. There is the long “Bay of Angeles” some 7 kilometres
long with the airport at one end and the harbour at the other. Some of
the beach is pebbles and some sand; there are occasional bars and restaurants
on the beach. The market is wonderful, and is open six days a week; the
seventh (Mondays) is all antiques. I cannot count the bars and restaurants,
many of which offer fantastic value for money, a 15 Euro menu including
wine is not unusual. Again I have a list of recommendations, including
a Michelin starred restaurant, a fish restaurant, and a vegetarian restaurant
all on the harbour side, very close to the flat!
