On rue Bonaparte, with a view from the sunny balcony onto Place de Pins, you are right next to one of the most chic and up and coming districts in Nice. Only a couple of minutes from Place Garibaldi, where the tram will deliver you straight from the airport. After passing though a pleasant courtyard, covered with vines, the apartment is up on the 3rd floor, though no lift. Inside is authentic with the original tomette red clay tiles, marble fireplaces, and frescos up on the high ceilings. There is plenty of light from the large windows that face both sides of the building, a good size living room, a separate kitchen, and two bedrooms. It needs some refreshing, with at least a repaint, but is an opportunity to get a real slice of history before somebody else can get to it and strip it away to give it that more uniform 'modern' look as is so usual these days.
