The apartment is on the first floor of the distinctive Vague Bleue building on the Nice Promenade des Anglais with its own balcony offering a stunning panoramic sea view of the famous Baie des Anges. Across the road is the Bambou Plage Beach Bar and Restaurant where you can lunch or shower after a quick swim in the sea or hire a deckchair for an afternoon nap. It also has a children’s play area. Nothing symbolises Nice more than the Promenade des Anglais. This 3km-line of south-facing apartments runs along the wide public beach from the Radisson Blu hotel all the way to the Negresco hotel.

Nothing symbolises Nice more than the Promenade des Anglais. This 3km-line of south-facing apartments runs along the wide public beach from the Radisson Blu hotel all the way to the Negresco hotel. Just north of here is the Carré d’Or, the city’s ritziest residential zone, and Place Massena, the geographical heart of the city. Although within walking distance to the Place Masséna and the Old Town, there are buses along the Promenade or Avenue de la Californie to get you there in minutes, or a nearby taxi rank if you prefer. The local area also has a number of restaurants, bakeries, patisseries and supermarkets. Whilst the airport is only a short taxi ride away, the 98 airport bus stops almost outside the apartment, as does the 12 bus to the main Nice railway station with fast access by TGV to Provence, Paris or Italy. Other buses will take you to Cannes, Antibes, Cap Ferrat or Monaco along the coast, or up to St Paul, Vence or Grasse in the hills. There is no need for a car as the Nice transport system is one of the best and cheapest in Europe. A stone’s throw away are two of Nice’s most interesting art museums, the Musée Des Beaux Art, with its large collection of Dufy and Bonnard paintings and the Musée de L’art Naif with its unique collection of works by painters such as Rousseau and Grandma Moses. Renovated three years ago, the apartment is fully air conditioned with double glazing and electric shutters ensuring a peaceful night's sleep. There are two large bedrooms, one with a king size double and the other with twin beds. Each room has a large double wardrobe with drawers and a large built-in cupboard with shelves. Bedroom 1 is ensuite. There are two good sized bathrooms, both tiled in Italian travertine and both with a Hansgrohe shower cubicle, heated towel rail, back-lit wall mirror, magnifying shaving mirror, hair-dryer, basin and toilet. Additionally the second bathroom has a bath with hand shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dish-washer, washing machine, oven, hob and microwave. The apartment has Wi-Fi to all rooms, a Sony HD television with Blu Ray player and surround sound Hi-Fi and a wide choice of satellite TV to include French, German, Italian and British channels. Additionally, guests have special access via a private corridor to the Palais Doria building behind, where there is an excellent patisserie and coffee shop on the Avenue de la Californie. The Palais Doria is a fine existing example of Belle Epoque architecture, and next door to the apartment at 139 Promenade des Anglais you will find an example of pure Art Nouveau fantasy by architect Charles Marius Allinge, one of Nice’s most famous buildings, the Villa Collin-Huovila. Whilst Cannes may steal the limelight with its glitz, few places can compare with Nice for atmosphere. The Old Town is endlessly fascinating with its warren of small streets, some taking you back a hundred years whilst others offer a spoilt-for-choice array of gourmet restaurants and specialist food shops. The streets of Nice are in themselves a museum or gallery, and on display is some of the best French architecture of the last three centuries. Parking There are two public multi-storey car parks within walking distance of the apartment .

About the neighbourhood
Few spots epitomise Nice -- or, in fact, the joie de vivre of the French Riviera in general -- than the inviting Promenade des Anglais. It is always bustling with humanity.There are tourists relaxing in the royal blue chairs lining the shore. There are locals roller blading, biking or jogging along it. Vendors sell crepes and drinks on it. Best of all, there are delightful seaside restaurants. Splurge on a chaise lounge, and let waiters bring you cocktails and appetizers. Locally referred to simply as la Prom, the curved road hugging the bay in Nice takes its name from its first builders, the English. In the early 19th century, when Nice became a winter resort for the Brits, they inhabited many villas along the beach. It was they who first constructed a path along the pebbly beach. Over ...
How to get there
98 AIRPORT BUS The 98 airport bus stops virtually outside the apartment. Get off at either the Hospital Lenval or the Magnan stop.

If you are coming by train to the Gare de Nice Ville, the no.12 bus will drop you off in the Avenue California which is just behind the apartment.
