This comfortable, recently modernised 2-bedroom apartment is superbly located on the famous 'Promenade des Anglais' in Nice. It has a sunny balcony with views over the azure Mediterranean Sea and from here you can sit and watch the world pass by, or head down to the beach and take a stroll along the seemingly endless promenade!
The apartment is approximately 65sq metres in size and comprises of a living room/open-plan kitchen, large hallway, two bedrooms, one bathroom and two balconies. Located on the 3rd floor (with lift) of a well-kept ‘bourgeois’ building, it has high ceilings and is positioned on the side of the building, therefore more distanced from the traffic noise of the Promenade below.
It’s a great location, within easy walking distance of a supermarket, many shops & restaurants and of course the beach; it’s also just a short bus/taxi ride from the nearby airport of Nice.
With a maximum occupancy of 4 people (plus babies) it would be suitable for a small family or group of friends who wish to be next to the beach.

About the local area
Local shops, restaurants, boulangeries and supermarket can be found within easy walking distance - just 50 metres away! A further wide range of shops and restaurants can be found in nearby Nice town centre and the historical Old Town.
Local markets are held all over Nice, but the most famous is in the “Cours Saleya” between the seafront and the Old Town of Nice. Here you can choose from a huge selection of fish, fruit, vegetables and flower stalls and on a Monday there is an interesting ‘brocante’ (bric-a-brac) market.
Sporting activities in the surrounding area are abundant – there is golf, tennis, fishing, horse riding, water sports, sailing, rollerblading, bicycle hire & the beach. You are also in very close proximity to the mountains and hills of the Alpes Maritimes region here, which makes walking and cycling very popular.
Beaches can be found just 30 metres away and they run the whole length of ‘The Promenade des Anglais’ from the airport to the Old Town. These pebbly beaches give the sea its beautiful azure-blue colour and are great for swimming, sunbathing and all sorts of water sports. The Promenade is also a great place for walks, jogging, rollerblading and just general people watching!
The ski stations of Greolieres, Valberg, Isola and Auron are between 1-2 hour’s drive away if you fancy a couple of day’s winter sports!
Getting around is very easy from here – you can walk to lots of places, but you also have a local bus network to explore the coast & surrounding towns and villages. There are also trains and coaches from Nice, which take you to lots of surrounding destinations including across the border into Italy! A car is definitely not required here.
Sightseeing is endless; you have the Old Town of Nice, The Port of Nice, The Promenade des Anglais, the towns of Villefranche-sur-Mer and Beaulieu-sur-Mer, Cap Ferrat and its zoo, the perched village of Eze, the principality of Monaco and the border town of Menton. In the other direction you can also discover the coastal towns of Antibes & Cannes or head inland to see St Paul-de-Vence and Mougins.
Other entertainment includes shopping, casinos & nightlife, theatre, cinema, helicopter rides, boat trips, Aquasplash and Marineland near Antibes, Parc Phoenix near the airport or just a good old day relaxing on the beach!
