The apartment is in the Musicians Quarter, just off Boulevard Gambetta. It is a few minutes walk to shops and restaurants and less than 10 minutes walk to the beach. Even though it is so central, the building is located away from any main roads. This means both east and west balconies enjoy sunshine in the calm.
Up on the second floor of this Nicois style building, without lift, is the 74m² two bedroom apartment. The open plan kitchen and dining has the original tomette tile flooring. The kitchen is fully equipped, there is a large dining table, and then a lounge area with TV. The smaller balcony looks west. There are two bedrooms, both with the restored original floors, and are a good size for double beds and have plenty of storage. The large bathroom has the shower, toilet, sink and washing machine. There is also a large cupboard where you can store your private possessions should you want to allow guests into your cozy home.
Whether as a home, second home, or want something that would make a great rental, this is a great property that manages to fulfill them all. It should be at the top of your list to view when in Nice.
