Exquisitely decorated with designer soft furnishings to soothe and inspire, Boeme is a delight on the eyes. From the traditional façade with ornate ironwork balconies to the splendid marble fireplace, the original features of this magnificent, 2nd floor, Belle Epoque, three-bedroom apartment add an air of charm and splendour to your stay which you will not forget in a hurry. Spacious, stylish and beautifully appointed, you will not want to leave.
The narrow balcony on the south-facing side of the apartment opens out from the living space and accommodates a small table and chairs. The north-facing balconies at the back of the apartment offer a little more seclusion and shade for those who seek it.
Living space with separate television room
Opening out from the dining area is the equally light-filled living area. A second and third set of French windows open onto the front balcony from either side of the marble fireplace. Impeccably furnished with sophistication and character, this room has the power to bewitch. Intricate cornicing, beguiling fabrics and creative finishing touches, this is truly a place in which to dream. A separate television room with comfortable sofa and chairs, a Smart TV with access to Netflix and Amazon prime, PS3 and a Sonos music system enable you to preserve the ambiance of the front room while keeping everyone happy.
Kitchen and dining area
Light streams into this convivial dining space through the south-facing French windows. The open plan kitchen area has plenty of contemporary chic while the classically curved Louis XV style dining table adds historic charm. From easy breakfast preparation to more complex catering, chefs will enjoy the horseshoe kitchen design and sleek functionality; it is fully equipped with an electric oven – four ring hobs, microwave, full-size fridge-freezer with drink and ice dispensers, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, washing machine and tumble dryer.
The mix of period pieces with awe-inspiring contemporary design brings character and expression to each room, accentuated by light wooden floors and carefully chosen colour. There is reversible air-conditioning fitted throughout for a comfortable temperature whatever the season.
The master bedroom situated at the front of the apartment has an en-suite bathroom, double bed, with bedside tables and reading lamps on both sides.
The second double bedroom is situated at the back of the apartment and opens on to its own small balcony. Wall-mounted reading lamps and wrought iron bedside tables plus an antique writing desk complete this room.
The third bedroom, also at the back, has a small balcony overlooking the internal courtyard. There are light wooden twin beds separated by a table and reading lamp and a small wardrobe for storage.
The main bathroom features a superbly deep, freestanding bathtub as well as a large shower cubicle and basin. Pale grey walls and flooring add warmth and the textured wall feature echoes the waves of the Mediterranean lapping not far away. There is a heated towel rail, and cupboards and drawers abound to house your toiletries.
The en-suite bathroom in the master bedroom has an additional shower cubicle, toilet and basin.
Very central but without the noise of some other locations, the Carabacel neighbourhood boasts some very elegant buildings and is full of restaurants and independent boutiques. There is a sophisticated yet progressive atmosphere to this part of town with a good selection of mouth-watering eateries next door on Rue Delille. Just a few minutes’ walk to the central green space of the Promenade du Paillon, the Modern Art Museum, the Port and the Old Town, staying in Boeme gives you easy access to everything Nice has to offer.
The tram system in Nice has recently developed and there are now 3 tram lines facilitating travel across the city and meeting up with the many buses. Line 3 (approx. 4:23am to 0:45am) connects the airport to the Alliance Riviera stadium, National Museum of Sport and St Isidore shopping centre. Line 2 (approx. 4:45 am to 1:10 am) connects the airport to many stops along the promenade and then onto the centre of Nice, the Old Town and the port. Line 1 (approx. 4:25 am to 1:25 am) meets line 2 on the main shopping avenue of Jean Médecin and then goes north to Nice Ville train station (Gare Thiers) and on through the market neighbourhood of Liberation, or in the opposite direction passing the Old Town, Place Garibaldi for the Bonaparte neighbourhood and onwards to the exhibition centre and the main hospital, Pasteur. Buy your tickets from machines on platforms before boarding: a one-way ticket costs €1.50 (bus/tram changes included up to 74 mins) or you can buy ten tickets for €10 and other passes. All tickets must be stamped onboard.
