*Please read 'Arrival information re additional payment on arrival for changeover fee* A Hidden Gem! Nice old town is predominantly comprised of apartment blocks, so this cute orange house with blue shutters hidden amongst the apartment blocks on Rue de la Providence is very special indeed. When the owners first saw it they couldn't help but fall in love with it. It is decorated in a light minimalist style with splashes of colour, but the old style French charm is still evident and very appealing. We are sure that you will love it as much as they do: However as it is situated over three levels there are stairs involved and it may not be suitable for the elderly or people with fitness or mobility issues.

Nice old town is predominantly comprised of apartment blocks, so this cute orange house with blue shutters hidden amongst the apartment blocks on Rue de la Providence is very special indeed. When the owners first saw it they couldn't help but fall in love with it. It is decorated in a light minimalist style with splashes of colour, but the old style French charm is still evident and very appealing. We are sure that you will love it as much as they do: However as it is situated over three levels there are stairs involved and it may not be suitable for the elderly or people with fitness or mobility issues. Location! Location! Location! Even the location is special: Although situated in Vieux Nice just seconds away from the pulsing beat of the old town's narrow streets, Rue de la Providence is nevertheless a tranquil area of the old town. The famous flower market, the fish market and the Cathedrale/Vieille Ville Tram stop are all just a few minutes' walk. The nearest beaches, 'Castel' and 'Opera' lie just across the “Promenade des Anglais”. So you can dip in and out of the hustle and bustle whenever you want. With the Castle above, and Place Garibaldi and the Port close by you are perfectly placed to enjoy all that Nice has to offer. Summertime and the living is easy! The property is arranged over three floors - on the top level (with automated skylight) you will find the open plan air-conditioned living area, with le Corbusier style 3-seater and 2-seater sofas; perfect for relaxing with family and friends. Reclaimed from old boats, a beautiful wooden table accompanied by Charles Eames style colourful chairs dominates the informal dining area beside the kitchen, ideal for enjoying a French feast or just sitting around sharing a bottle of chilled Provencal Rose. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors lead out onto the balcony, which benefits from both sun and shade during the day, with lemon and clementine bushes and a breakfast table and chairs. It is perfect for savouring the beautiful views over the pretty rooftops of old Nice to the hills beyond. The kitchen has plenty of storage space and is very appealing to the eye with chalk-white cupboards complementing the pretty coloured worktop and wall tiles. It comes equipped with oven, 4 x hob, extractor fan, large fridge/freezer, and a Nespresso machine for coffee lovers. In the corner of the room reclaimed wooden shelves house books, games, a router and Sonos sound system so guests can stream their favourite music and connect to Wi-Fi for email etc. Stairs lead down to a large air-conditioned bedroom containing a luxury super-king sized bed for comfort, a double wardrobe, large TV and the en suite bathroom, with its large rectangular wash basin, equally large mirror, and heated towel rail. The generously proportioned bath comes complete with shower fitment. There is a separate WC located just outside on the landing. Cool Courtyard On the ground level you can find the second bedroom with patio doors leading out to a wood-decked courtyard. Shaded from all but the midday sun this area is much cooler so it is perfect for relaxing during those hot Mediterranean summer days. This bedroom also enjoys a luxury super-king sized bed, and an even larger wardrobe with sliding mirrored doors. This room is so cool and shady that air conditioning is unnecessary. Its en suite wet room contains a walk in shower, washbasin with mirror above & vanity cupboard below, heated towel rail, toilet and the washing machine. The Secret! Across the courtyard an old heavy wooden door leads to a passageway with steps down through an adjacent apartment onto Rue de la Providence so this really is a secret house! Your Arrival: You will be welcomed on arrival to the apartment and given the grand tour. Local maps and tourist info will be available in the apartment and we can with you our favourite restaurants etc. You can choose to be met at the apartment or at the nearest airport bus stop, We speak English and enjoy welcoming guests from all over the world to their temporary home on the Riviera. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL 150 EURO CASH PAYABLE ON ARRIVAL TO THE APARTMENT MANAGER FOR THE SERVICES & UTILITIES. This fee includes cleaning of apartment, supply and laundering bed linen & towels, meet and greet, & starter necessities – a starter supply of dishwasher tablets, washing powder and toilet paper. Check in time is 4pm and check out time is 10.30am. Should you wish an earlier or later check in we will try our best to accommodate you, depending if there is a same day check in / check out. For late arrivals after 8pm there is an additional fee of 20 euro, for arrivals between 10.00pm to midnight there the fee is 40 euro. If you are interested in wine tasting, booking a trip and airport transfer or have any requests to make you stay extra special, please contact us and we will be happy to help. HOUSE RULES - PLEASE READ We don't want to implement lots of house rules as you are on holiday and we want you to relax and enjoy the apartment as much as we do. All we ask is that you love and respect our apartment and take good care of it for us. Please use your beach towels when sitting on the furniture if using sun cream and oil as these can stain, and they can be difficult to remove and clean in time for the next guest. Also if using fake tan or hair dye please bring your own towels as these products permanently stain our white towels and linen which are expensive to replace. If towels and linen are soiled and stains cannot be removed then unfortunately you will be charged for replacing these items – we hope you understand. Finally our last request is that you ensure that you had a fabulous stay and enjoy Nice and the Riviera as much as we do.More
