This attractive Nice apartment with 2 bedrooms accommodating 2 to 6 people is in a very convenient location just 100 metres from the Old Town ( Vieux Nice ). 2 rue Papon is a traditional Nicoise house built in 1900 with a typically Nicoise entrance hall and staircase in a characteristic Nicoise street in a very central position.
What is special is that this spacious, bright and sunny 2-bedroomed Nice apartment with high ceilings occupies the whole of the second floor of the building (accessed by stairs), so there are no other apartments on your level, thus giving additional privacy. Also, because the apartment is what the French call “traversant” (running from the front of the building through to the back), you have light from the south and the north and ‘through-air’ – very important on hot days and nights. The windows and balcony doors have the traditional wooden louvred shutters to keep the apartment cooler on very hot days.
This Nice apartment is extremely well situated being only 30 metres from the delightful 18th century Place Garibaldi and the new state-of-the-art tramway, 100 metres from the corner of the Old Town (Vieux Nice), 150 metres from the central bus stop. It is within a few minutes walk of the Marina (Port), beaches, the Chateau Hill and park, museums, galleries and concert halls, the Acropolis conference centre, the beautiful Place Massena with its impressive fountains, the famous Promenade des Anglais, hundreds of charming restaurants, brasseries, bistros, bars and pavement cafes, and every type of shopping you could wish for. There is a big supermarket within 50 metres.
By taxi, bus, hire car or private car, the property is conveniently only ten minutes from Nice Airport. The apartment is ideally placed for you to enjoy Nice and all of the Côte d’Azur.
The Nice tramway passes within 30 metres. If you want to go off and explore the rest of the French Riviera the central bus station is only150 metres away. A car is definitely not necessary - although if you arrive by car or hire a car whilst you are here, there are parking meters in the street and there is a multi-storey car park within 150 metres.
There is an entry-phone system. This Nice apartment has marble-tiled floors throughout. The large sun-filled, south-facing living room has two sofas - one of which converts into a proper mattress bed to sleep a further two people if required – thus giving a total sleeping capacity of six in three separate rooms, if needed. There are French doors opening to a small south-facing balcony – ideal for taking your coffee in the morning sunshine, or a little later in the day, a glass of wine. There is the original marble fireplace, a large glass-topped dining table and dining chairs and a newly fitted ‘kitchen Americaine’ with four-ring electric hob, microwave/grill, fridge/freezer, electric kettle, toaster and cafetiere, and a washing machine/dryer, iron and ironing board. There is WIFI available, a CD/tape player/radio, a DVD should you wish to bring your favourite CDs and DVD films and a television, if you find time to watch it !
Bedroom One has two pairs of long windows and the original marble fireplace. The large double bed is twin-linked with separate mattresses and bases and can therefore be separated to make 2 singles if you prefer. Bedroom Two has a sofabed, with proper mattresses, which unusually, is designed to give a single bed, or two separate single beds, or you can place the two singles side by side to create a full sized double bed. There is large wardrobe and a further large cupboard in the entrance hall.
There is a separate toilet room with proper full-size windows and a bright and spacious shower room with a large wash hand basin and this room also has proper full-size windows. A hair dryer is provided. Both the toilet and the shower room can be accessed at all times of the day or night without disturbing each other. There are electric heating radiators in every room should you ever need them.
