Since Pierre and I started going to Nice some years ago, we always loved the Port area. Last year we rented an apartment here and got the wild idea of investing in this area. So this was the area we searched in and found a beautiful renovated apartment in an old art-deco building a stone's throw from the line-up of huge flashy yachts and small colourful fishing boats. We gave it the name "Niça" - an old word for Nice.
By August we started furbishing it, step by step in between being in Tuscany running the wine tours. And now, after much selection and fixing we're almost ready - at least with the final photos for the site.
The most wonderful features of our apartment - and the reason why you should rent it - is that it's so central to everything, the historical building gives you a true feeling of Nice, we've decorated it beautifully and given it all features of comfort for a great stay.
Have a peak with me now! This is the hall when you walk in on the second floor.
I love this cabinet. We've filled it with pebbles of Nice's beach.
In a rental I've always thought there weren't enough cooking utensils to cook up a nice meal, if you feel like it. So here you'll have all you need for a fine dinner at home.
We'll have breakfast in the kitchen with fresh made croissants or baguette from the bakery around the corner.
Here I'm standing on the terrace where I hang clothes or check out the sunny weather
I love to cook with spices and it's hard to do so when away, so these are all at the disposal of our guests.
Let's move into the living room. It's large and bright with a comfy sofa and two armchairs.
Great painting of Nice Port
There's an bluetooth stereo, a few books and games available
Sofa's so inviting...have a drink or watch international TV (netflix available!!)
Another detail I love - this is depicted on a window shutter in the theme of the sea just outside...
Master bedroom with king size bed, super comfy!
Touch screen computer hooked up to the internet for your use
Second bedroom with beds that can be separated.
The meditation room!
The building is at the Port of Nice (where those green trees are)
Lots of options around for some delicious specialties
Place Garibaldi where you can hang out at Aperitif time (2 drinks at the price of 1!)
And the pebbly beach just 5 mins walk away
